Like all living things, humans are bio­luminescent (meaning we glow) – We glow brightest during the afternoon. - weird, interesting & funny facts

what

i’ve been staring at this for like 5 minutes. so.. what. i don’t think people glow. but this is telling me that we actually emit visible light.. especially in the afternoon?? am i reading this right or what

"all living things" plants. when do the plants glow

science side of tumblr pls

I’m not from the science side of tumblr, but here’s the answer anyways:
 Basically, all living things are bioluminescent because every living thing has chemical reactions occurring in their cells. The energy created from these chemical reactions physically manifests as light, thus… all living things naturally glow.
 However, this glow cannot be seen by the human eye. In fact, the only way they’ve ever captured this light is through special cameras. Using these ultra special cameras, they’ve imaged subjects’ bodies over 24 hour periods. It has been found out that humans emit the most of this glow during the afternoon (about 4 PM), it is the weakest in the morning (about 10 AM), and the brightest light is emitted from the cheeks, neck, and forehead.
The light is about a thousand times weaker than what humans can perceive.
 Basically, it’s a side effect of metabolic reactions. It’s been suspected that humans are bioluminescent for years, but they weren’t able to confirm it until recently thanks to technology and a man named Masaki Kobayashi from the Tohoku Institute of Technology.

Skinny Shaming

Ok, so i’m not trying to get you to pity me, but I felt the need to address this. I’m a size 0-2 (depends on the store), and I weigh less than 100 pounds. I eat what I want, exercise regularly, participate in PE, and my doctors say I am at a healthy weight for my height (i’m barely 5 feet). I constantly get called anorexic behind my back, when in reality I am very healthy. I eat veggies, fruit, protein, all that good stuff. But I also eat cakes, cookies, snickers, candies, ice cream, etc. And no, I do not throw it all up. It’s just the way I am, I was born with this body type. But something I’ve been noticing on Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, and in real life, is that when people are trying to defend and comfort someone more curvy,  often times we just insult people who are slim. Sometimes that evolves into stereotyping people who are slim to be anorexic, ugly, and just disgusting. Now, don’t get me wrong, I have absolutely nothing against people with curves. I think everyone is beautiful, but this just pisses me off so much. I mean, I’m starting to feel bad about being slim! What I want everyone reading this to remember is that

  • not all slim people have an eating disorder
  • never insult another group of people to defend another
  • except all body types
  • there is such a thing as skinny shaming, and it needs to stop

MOTHERFUCKING THANK YOU

WEIGHT SHAMING CAN GO BOTH WAYS

Things that does not have a “special size”:

  • Eating disorder
  • Happiness
  • Health
  • Beauty
