Took me forever to make the gifs for this but, Beldent Almost Identical is a social experiment in which people are asked to judge identical twins. There’s only one difference between them and that is, that one is chewing gum while the other is not.

Based on this one characteristic only, people have landed on drastic assumptions of these twin’s personality.

Based on the youtube video comments, many have criticized the experiment with the main one being how facial expressions and posture could’ve led to those assumptions instead as well as the experiment design itself being unscientific. 

Either way, good job on marketing your gum beldent.

The Habits of Smart People

When asked if they would rather be smart or dumb, surely everyone would answer smart! If you’re looking to improve your mental capabilities you can start by following in the footsteps of some of the smartest people in the world.

A person’s Intelligence Quotient indicates their mental abilities relative to others of approximately the same age.

  • Average IQ= 100
  • Above Average=115
  • Genius= 140
  • Extraordinary Genius=160

The Good Habits

They are persistent

Smart people don’t let failure stop them.

  • Albert Einstein (IQ=160) did not speak until he was 4
  • Bill Gates’ (IQ=160) first business failed
  • Thomas Edison (IQ=145) tried to make a lightbulb over 1,000 times
  • Benjamin Franklin (IQ=160) dropped out of school at age 10
  • Ludwig Van Beethoven (IQ=165) was told he would never succeed

They set goals

Students were given 4 weeks to accomplish a goal…

  • Students without written goals—->accomplish 43% of goals
  • Students with written goals—->accomplish 64% of goals
  • Students who share their goals with friends—> accomplish 76% of goals

They are avid readers

The benefits of reading include…

  • Increases verbal skills
  • Helps articulate thoughts
  • Enhances problem solving skills
  • Improved memory
  • Increases concentration
  • Improves writing skills
  • Expands vocabulary

Just 15 minutes of reading a day exposes you to over 1,000,000 words a year.

They are self-disciplined

IQ level is a good indicator of rates of virginity amongst adolescents.

  • Teens with IQ < 100 are 1.5-5 times more likely to have had sex than teens with 120 < IQ > 130
  • Every additional IQ point increases odds of virginity 2.7% for males/ 1.7% for females

87% of all undergrads students have had sex. Undergrads at top schools that have had sex:

  • Harvard= 59%
  • Princeton=56%
  • MIT=51%

This reflects a desire to safeguard educational and occupational plans by avoiding risk associated with adolescent sex.

They think about thinking

  • Metacognition is the self-awareness of one’s own knowledge, and affects critical thinking skills.
  • Cognitive skills include comparing, analyzing, and inferring
  • Metacognitive skills allow individuals to realize the best way to utilize their cognitive skills.

Being smart obviously has its’ advantages, but there can be a downside…

The Bad Habits of Smart People

They tend to drink

  • Studies have shown that intelligent children are more likely to drink as adults, compared to their peers.
  • Adults with childhood IQ < 75 engage in binge drinking less than once a year.
  • Adults with childhood IQ > 125 engage in binge drinking once every other month.

They are at a greater risk for drug use

  • Boys with IQs > 107 were 2x more likely to use illegal drugs during adulthood than peers
  • Girls with IQs > 107 were 3x more likely to use illegal drugs during adulthood

They are night owls

Effects of sleep deprivation:

  • Increases risk of heart disease
  • Increases risk of obesity
  • 3x more likely to suffer from depression
  • Impairs judgement

They are anxious

In a 2012 study patients with generic anxiety disorder exhibited higher IQ scores than healthy volunteers. Although experts speculate worrisome people are more equipped to for see troublesome situations, anxiety has clear consequences.

Chronic anxiety can lead to:

  • Smoking
  • Depression
  • Neuroticism

If you’re looking to improve your success at home, school, or work, you can start by working the positive habits of smart people into your daily routine. Remember, while extreme intelligence has some negative associations, exhibiting these traits won’t make you smarter!

FUCK GHOSTS MAN

Ouija boards are not a fucking game

I once did a ouija board with someone before at Mountainview cemetery in Vancouver trying to contact GHOSTS after we saw one (a ouija, not a ghost lol) at a Toys R Us. We had a case of newcastles and got right into the boozing and contacting. A bunch of korean war vet ghosts buried there immediately told us to fuck off and refused to continue with the ouija bullshit so the eyepiece just didnt move after that for several questions or so after, as if they were angrily ignoring us for disturbing them lol

After a little while, we got in contact with two other spirits that I found were specifically hovering around me. One was a female spirit with a bizarre wacky name who thought I was cute and the other was a little boy from the 19th century. We asked if the boy was buried in the cemetery. The boy said no. We asked where he was from. The little boy was from europe. Confused, we wondered if the boy was an immigrant from europe living in vancouver who died and was buried at the cemetery. No, the ouija stated. The boy never lived or visited Vancouver during his life. Where did this spirit come from and how did he find us? The spirit stated he had been following me specifically for years already. More confusion. This ghost was from Europe but has been in vancouver following me for a while already but never once been here?

I distinctly remember the chill that went up my spine when I suddenly remembered that in 2006 I went on a high school trip to Italy. I asked if hes from Italy. The ouija glides to “yes”

Is that where you saw me?

"yes"

The wandering boy spirit saw me during my high school trip and decided to follow me ever since.

We packed up the ouija board and left.
