1.Alexandria’s Genesis, a.k.a violet eyes (a genetic mutation).
When someone is born with Alexandria’s Genesis, their eyes are blue or gray at birth. After six months, the eyes begin to change from their original color to purple, and this process lasts six months. During puberty, the color deepens to dark purple, a deep purple, a royal purple, or a violet-blue color and remains that way. It does not affect the person’s eyesight.
Those who have this mutation will never grow any facial, body, pubic, or anal hair (not including hair on their head, on their ears, noses, eyebrows and eyelashes) Women also do not menstruate, but are fertile.
So basically they’re perfect people.
Upon further research
The “symptoms” of those who have Alexandria’s genesis are shimmering, white skin that resists tanning or burning; no body hair other than that which they are born with; purple-colored eyes; a slowing down and even stopping of the aging process; a life span of up to 170 years; their bodies produce little or no waste; their bodies are well-developed; their immune systems are incredibly strong, and resist every disease known to man; they have perfect vision; and they never gain weight. In other words, they’re really “super-human”.
2. Aokigahara is a place at the foot of Mt. Fuji which is beautiful yet dense and is a place where a lot of people commit suicide. Hundreds of bodies have been found here and as an effort to stop people from committing suicides, there are sign posts that tell people to reconsider suicide. As Mt. Fuji is sacred, some probably feel blessed to be able to die here.
The nature of the place is very foreboding and you will hear nothing but the forest when you move in just a few kilometers from the border. It is believed that the unsettled souls come to this place to scream their frustrations into the winds. The foresters have a job of looking for bodies in this forest and they come across them often, either hanging from trees or eaten away by predators.
3. We only dream of what we know. Our dreams are frequently full of strangers who play out certain parts – did you know that your mind is not inventing those faces – they are real faces of real people that you have seen during your life but may not know or remember? The evil killer in your latest dream may be the guy who pumped petrol into your dad’s car when you were just a little kid. We have all seen hundreds of thousands of faces throughout our lives, so we have an endless supply of characters for our brain to utilize during our dreams.

If you wrap you left foot with cloth (handkerchief or towel, not too tight) then you step on your right foot, you can feel the blood passing down your backbone. then if your wrap the right foot then step on the left foot, you can feel the blood passing upward. All of this were conclusions and studies made by professor Rey Pinioco on the UZXC University, Philadelphia.

If you ever jump as if you’re being electrocuted when drifting off to sleep, you’re experiencing a ‘hypnic jerk’.The brain mistakes pre-sleep relaxation for falling and stiffens the limbs to get the body upright again.
Alien Hand Syndrome (also called "Dr. Strangelove Syndrome") is a neurological disorder, in which one of the sufferer's hands seems to take on a mind of its own. Having no control over it, the hand, simply, does what it wants!!!

Reason: double post
There are a lot of alternative explanations of what O.K. stands for, but officially it stands for "oll korrect". The abbreviation to OK goes back to the 1830s. Abbreviations of misspelled phrases (e.g. N.S. for "nuff said") were popular back then, though the only one that survived beyond that time period was O.K.
There's a couple of popular alternative explanations. For instance, that it's a derivative of a word from Choctaw Indians or a reference to a biscuit company called O. Kendall & Sons.

Few things about Japan..
1: Poorly written English can be found everywhere, including T-shirts and other fashion items.
2:More than 70% of Japan consists of mountains, including more than 200 volcanoes.
3: nice musk melon, similar to a cantaloupe, may sell for over $300US.
4:There are around 1,500 earthquakes every year in Japan.
5:Average life expectancy in Japan is one of the highest in the world. Japanese people live an average of 4 years longer than Americans.
6:Some men in Japan shave their heads to apologize.
Human lungs have taste buds?
These taste receptors are actually quite similar to those found on our tongues, with but a couple of major differences. Lung taste buds are not clustered together and they can only sense bitter flavors. They also do not send any messages to the brain. Some of these bitter flavors are able to dramatically relax lung tissue - this line of research could revolutionize treatment of asthma and other chronic lung diseases in the future!
