Why Planes Don’t Fly Over the Pacific Ocean
When planning a route, many pilots prefer to maximize the number of airports along their path. – Excluding special circumstances such as passing through the jet streams or other meteorological concerns, the fastest route is almost always the one closest to a straight line. – On a 2D map, making a giant rainbow to avoid the Pacific Ocean looks like a much longer route. But since the Earth is a sphere, a straight line is going to look very different in three-dimensional spaces. – The combination of the two factors, the curvature of the Earth and its extra equatorial width mean that curving toward the poles is a shorter distance than flying (what seems like on a map) “straight” across! –

Simple Psychological Tricks That Actually Work
– Never start your request with the words “Could you…” It can cause the other person to subconsciously assume that this is a theoretical question
– If you ever want someone to feel uncomfortable, look at the middle of their forehead during the conversation.
– If someone you’re talking to is trying to avoid answering a question, just make a pause in the conversation while still keeping eye contact.
– When asking a question that you want an affirmative answer to, try to nod subtly as you make your request. This trick is often used by restaurant employees to make guests buy more food, and it’s pretty effective!
– If a person is really concentrated on a task (let’s say they’re in the middle of a serious phone conversation), you can extend your hand to them and get anything they’re holding at the moment.
– If you want somebody to do something for you, casually say how they probably wouldn’t even be able to do it. Most people will try really hard to prove someone wrong when it comes to doubting their capabilities.
– Here’s a good one for negotiations. If you like a person’s offer in general but would like to get better conditions, pretend to be a little bit disappointed.
– As soon as your alarm clock goes off, sit up, make two fists, and yell “Yeah!” as if you’re a soccer player who’s just scored a goal. It sounds bizarre, but it really does help you easily get out of bed feeling refreshed.
– If a person tries to pull you into an argument or some drama, say something nice to them. The ol’ “kill ‘em with kindness” trick really does stop them in their tracks.
– If you have that one lazy person on your team that slows the whole work process down, don’t give them tasks by saying “Do this.” It’s better to say “Start with this.”
– If someone is staring at you in the subway (happens all-too often, right?), just look at their shoes. Don’t give up, keep gazing! It’ll drive them crazy!
– If someone has done something wrong, but you don’t wanna sound too accusing, change the way you construct your sentences.
– If you didn’t get a good night’s sleep, tell yourself that you did. I know, it sounds like nonsense, but it does work 100% if you say it with meaning!
– People are better at remembering what happened at the beginning and end of the day. As for anything that went on in between, it gets blurry.
Hidden Symbols In Famous Logos
– Paramount Pictures They say the first original logo was drawn on a napkin. The mountain on it resembled Ben Lomond in Utah, as it played an important part in the life of the studio creator. The 24 stars around the mountain weren’t a random decoration of the logo. They stood for 24 actors and actresses who were the first to sign contracts with Paramount.
– Domino’s Pizza The first original logo had dominos on it. The one dot stood for the very first restaurant. The two dots symbolized the two franchises that opened a few years later. The plan was to add dots for each new restaurant.
– Hershey’s Kisses Can you see the chocolate Kiss between “K” and “I”? By the way, do you know why Hershey’s Kisses are called so? The most popular version says it’s named after the sound the chocolate makes moving onto the conveyer belt.
– NBC The peacock was first used as NBC logo back in 1956. Why did they choose a peacock of all birds? For its variety of colors and also to show how proud they were of their new broadcasting technologies.
– Carrefour Its name translates as “crossroads”. That explains the red and blue arrows that point in opposing directions. The white negative space is also used in a smart way. If you give it a close look, you will see a “C” for “Carrefour” in between the arrows.
– Roxy’s logo is more than just a heart to symbolize love for sports. It’s a crest built of two Quicksilver logos on their ends.
– Cisco Internet networking giant Cisco got its name after the city of its headquarters – San Francisco. Their logo has both a reference to their location and to what they are doing.
– Picasa Do you know what “casa” means in Spanish? It translates as “home”. The negative space in the center of the logo looks like a little house.
– Nintendo Gamecube The cube isn’t just a cube within a cube. The outer figure is a letter “G” and the inside negative space forms a clear “C”. GC for Gamecube.
– Unilever The letter “U” which clearly stands for Unilever is made up of 25 icons that stand for everything that’s important to them. You can find a lock of hair, a tea leaf, a jar, a hand, and even a spoon in there, as well as many more symbolic drawings.
– Wendy’s The logo clearly says… “mom”. The idea is that Wendy’s is happy to give you the taste of your mom’s cooking and they want this thinking to stick to you.
– Pepsi The designer has explained that this logo also makes reference to Mona Lisa, the Parthenon, and even René Descartes. The red, white, and blue colors have always represented the American flag.
