Science Shows What You Think Will Make You Happy Probably Won’t

Science says there’s a good chance you don’t what really makes you happy. When estimating our happiness, we humans tend to engage in something called “impact bias” where we overestimate the actual effect that different outcomes will have on our life.

When if they think they’d be happier winning the lottery or becoming paraplegic, most people quite understandably respond that they’d be happier with all that money and no handicap.

Still, real life statistics show that one year after winning the lottery or losing the use of their lower body, people in both these groups are equally happy. Yes, really, EQUALLY.

Intense Solar CME Shockwave Hits Magnetosphere | S0 News July.16.2017

The intense CME shockwave struck around 6am UTC, causing immediate magnetosphere compression and delivering vastly increased electro-magnetic pressure on the Earth’s system. The shockwave was very dense, and geo-magnetic disruptions are underway. Major troubles with transformers, airlines and airport radar, GPS, internet, and communications can begin at any time and last through the peak of the geo-magnetic disturbance, but it shouldn’t be as bad as it could have been.

In recent years, a number of high-profile figures have come out to state their belief that we are living in a simulation. Chief among them is tech magnate Elon Musk, who has stated that the video game No Man’s Sky confirmed his belief that someday simulations would approximate reality so comprehensively that they would be indistinguishable from reality.
