How our ancestors eat raw meat

Raw meat is difficult to chew. And, of course, no one in his right mind would even think of eating raw meat all the time.

So the question is, how did our prehistoric ancestors manage to do it?

Unlike other carnivorous animals such as wolves, which have teeth that can slice through raw meat, human teeth are primarily adapted for chewing and crushing like a mortar and pestle, meaning that we have to cook meat first so that our teeth can break it down when we eat it.

The Mystery of Exploding Teeth

Yes, toothaches can sometimes be an utterly painful nuisance – to the point that the excruciating pain caused by a single loose tooth can dominate your whole life.

However, that’s nothing that’s nothing compared to what a Pennsylvania dentist encountered during the 19th century – he encountered bizarre cases of teeth exploding after a period of mind-blowing pain.

Brit Scientist: Memories Can Possibly Be Edited

Do you want to spend the night with a hot actress like Marilyn Monroe? You can, a leading British scientist has suggested – in your mind.

That’s because Professor Tim Bliss, a British neuroscientist who is set to be awarded this year's coveted Brain Prize, has recently suggested that it may soon be possible to add and remove memories just like we save and delete data from a computer.

"I think that memory is one of the essential faculties of mind which we will eventually understand almost completely," he said. "I wouldn’t say that about other faculties of mind such…

Lost Tapes Reveal Apollo Astronauts Heard Unexplained ‘Music’ On Far Side Of The Moon

The crew of an Apollo mission to the moon were so startled when they encountered strange music-like radio transmissions coming through their headsets, they didn't know whether or not to report it to NASA, it's been revealed.

It was 1969, two months before Apollo 11's historic first manned landing on the moon, when Apollo 10 entered lunar orbit, which included traversing the far side of the moon when all spacecraft are out of radio contact with Earth for about an hour and nobody on Earth can see or hear them.

As far as the public knew, everything about the mission…
