Scratch Your Ear And INSTANTLY Cure This
Scratch Your Ear And INSTANTLY Cure This

There’s nothing more annoying than a tickle in your throat that just won’t go away. When you scratch your ear, you stimulate nerves that can cause a muscle spasm in your throat. The spasm can sometimes relieve the tickle and urge to cough. The body is loaded with spurious “pressure points,” but this is one that’s truly helpful.

Stop Nosebleeds IMMEDIATELY With This Simple Tip
Stop Nosebleeds IMMEDIATELY With This Simple Tip

All pinching your nose and leaning backward will do is cause you to choke on your own blood. Instead, apply pressure to your upper gums, directly under your nose. There’s a vein in there that should stop the nosebleed when compressed. If you’re going to lean anywhere, make it forward, not back. Leaning forward will at least let the blood drip out through your nose instead of your throat.

Can Jet Lag Be CURED With This Daily Activity?

Everyone knows the circadian rhythm (or body clock) is controlled by light. Most people don’t know about the suprachiasmatic nucleus, which tells the brain when it should be awake based on when food is available. When planning for a trip, switch your meal schedule as close as possible to your destination -- sleep may follow. This is also an excellent excuse to indulge in a full meal at midnight.

Hearing Problems SOLVED With One Quick Hack
Hearing Problems SOLVED With One Quick Hack

It turns out our ears are not created equal. When trying to zero in on a conversation happening away from you, angle your right ear in its direction (it's better at picking up speech patterns). The left, on the other hand, is your go-to ear for trying to remember the artist who sings the song on the radio (it's better at identifying music). If you pay attention, people do this naturally. Remember the last time you and a girl tried to shout at each other in a loud club. Which ear did you turn toward one another?

The ULTIMATE Hiccup Cure Is Right Here
The ULTIMATE Hiccup Cure Is Right Here

People are told to hold their breath when they have the hiccups, but that’s counterintuitive. The diaphragm, the spasming muscle responsible for hiccups, can only make you hiccup when there’s air in your lungs. Instead, breathe out as completely as you can, and then hold it and distract yourself by swallowing repetitively. With nothing pressuring your diaphragm, it should calm down.

Got The Drunken Spins? Here's Your BEST Solution.
Got The Drunken Spins? Here's Your BEST Solution.

When you’ve had a few too many, the spins make everything worse. The fix is simple -- plant your hand down on something flat and stable, like a desk or countertop. Your overindulgence made your brain unable to sort out its equilibrium, so contacting a flat surface will remind it that you’re on terra firma. No one’s 100% sure why this works as opposed to, you know, just standing on solid ground, but some suspect that it’s because our hands are much more sensitive than our feet.

This Booze Can Cure The Burn Of SPICY Food
This Booze Can Cure The Burn Of SPICY Food

Generally speaking, the culprit behind most spicy food is the chemical capsaicin. Next time you overdo it at the Thai restaurant, order a White Russian. Capsaicin is both fat- and alcohol-soluble, and this drink has both of those in spades, thanks to the cream and vodka. If a boozy cure isn’t an option, even warm water will provide a little relief -- just remember to spit it out.

We Just FINALLY Cured Your Motion Sickness
We Just FINALLY Cured Your Motion Sickness

Thanks to the holidays, we’re just as likely to take long trips in the winter as we are in the summer. Motion sickness occurs when your body senses one thing (motion) while your eyes tell your brain you’re sitting still. The disconnect between the two is what results in that queasy feeling. While focusing on the horizon is the best option, others suggest cracking a window and breathing in cold air, as well. No one’s quite sure why it works, but it’s suggested that cold, clear air removes any odors that can make nausea even worse.

Can Water ACTUALLY Boost Your Metabolism?
Can Water ACTUALLY Boost Your Metabolism?

When you sleep, your body goes into shutdown mode so the brain can handle its business. As soon as you wake up, suck down a glass of water or two -- it’ll wake up your internal organs and prepare your body for the day ahead., and increase your metabolism. If that sounds ridiculous, it’s not: If you’re a healthy person, you sip on water all day. A good night’s rest means a solid eight hours you spent not drinking any. Make water, not coffee, your first priority in the morning.

Big Beautiful Contract For Big Beautiful Woman
Big Beautiful Contract For Big Beautiful Woman

It's a great day for corpulent women. Why? Because, the biggest plus-sized model ever has been signed by a prominent modelling agency in the UK. And they usually sign anthropomorphised stick bugs. Pretty ones, but still.

Yes indeed, the big and beautiful Tess Holliday is the hottest, newest face in the world of plus-size modelling and her shorter stature and larger dress size is a true first. Frankly, Miss Holliday isn't plump or chubby or rotund. Miss Holliday is fat. By all definitions, she is a fat person. And you know what? Not only is that totes okay, it's beautiful. Maybe even a new beauty ideal. Is the Rubenesque beauty back for good?

That said, Marc has a take on why that's still brutally unfair in a colossal way if you are a man human person.

Firing Cannon Balls Wasn't Enough To Wipe Out These Soldiers
Firing Cannon Balls Wasn't Enough To Wipe Out These Soldiers

Another great battle you might never have heard of saw the Swedish facing off against the mighty Russian empire. The Russian Czar Peter the Great, who would later go on to create the city of St. Petersburg on what was formerly Swedish land, found his empire was in desperate need of access to the Baltic Sea. Standing in the Russian’s way were the Swedes with their highly profitable, important naval forts and seaports along the Baltic coastline.

In 1700, Peter the Great decided that he would take the Swedish naval fortress of Narva by force; diplomacy was evidently getting him nowhere. Peter mustered a massive force of 37,000 troops and surrounded Narva. Narva, was the gateway to the Gulf of Finland, and would have been a huge prize for the Russians, allowing them to then project their forces further into Swedish territory. Peter’s forces met barely any resistance from Swedish forces and began sieging Narva. His tactic was to wait comfortably outside, and starve the inhabitants of Narva until they surrendered. Oh and fire thousands of cannon balls at their battlements.

Objectively it was a fantastic plan, but the Emperor of Sweden Charles XII did not take to kindly to this Russian aggression. He quickly mobilized his best troops and set off a rescue force of around 8,000 troops. They marched immediately on Narva and found the Russian forces entrenched firmly around the city. Despite Charles XII’s troops being outnumbered four to one, he decided to press the attack. However, before the superior Russian numbers could cut down the Swedish troops, a fierce blizzard descended upon the battlefield.

Any potential engagements were thus delayed thanks to Mother Nature. However, later in the afternoon, the blizzard changed direction and began to blow directly towards the Russian forces, essentially blinding them. Charles seized this opportunity. He roused his troops and split them into two columns that marched upon the enemy under cover of the blizzard. The Russians remained none-the-wiser, and only realized the danger when the Swedish forces fell upon them, bayoneting and firing liberally. Peter’s forces were quickly divided into three and rounded up. At one crucial point, when the Russians attempted a retreat, the bridge over the Narova River collapsed, leading to a stampede in which around 18,000 Russian troops perished. The Swedes captured those who survived along with all the Russian military supplies.

Charles XII in his great magnanimity allowed his 20,000 Russian prisoners to return home to Russia unharmed. This was perhaps his greatest error. Some historians argue that by defeating the army and capturing all their supplies, had Charles XII then marched on Russia, Peter the Great would have been powerless to stop him. Moreover, Peter the Great would return to Sweden four years later and proceed to capture Narva and other lands in Sweden’s Baltic provinces. Peter would eventually build St. Petersburg on these freshly conquered lands.

This Is The Biggest Upset War Of All Time
This Is The Biggest Upset War Of All Time

Probably the best-known example of a David vs. Goliath battle in history, the Battle of Thermopylae, is often better known as the Battle of the 300. This battle took place during the second Persian invasion of Greece, and occurred at the same time as a major naval battle at Artemisium. The forces mustered by the Persian Emperor Xerxes staggeringly outnumbered the Greeks and they knew it. Their best hope was based off of a strategy devised by Athenian General Themistocles, who suggested the Greeks block off the Persian advance by land at the narrow pass of Thermopylae, and by sea at the Straits of Artemisium.

Estimates of the forces involved vary wildly, with the Greek historian Herodotus claiming the Greeks numbered just over 5,000 strong whilst Xerxes forces boggled the mind at two and half million troops. More recent historical estimates have toned down those staggering figures quite a bit. Xerxes is likely to have had around at most 300,000 men and the combined Greek force would have numbered around 20,000. Still a gargantuan difference!

Despite being grossly outnumbered the Greek forces managed to hold off Xerxes for seven days, including three full days of battle. The Spartan King Leonidas led a group of 300 fearless Spartan soldiers, the best of the best in the ancient world, who were trained to be soldiers from birth. They singlehandedly held the only road by which Xerxes could bring his army into the Greek mainland. The Greeks held their ground for two full days of battle before a local, Ephialtes, approached Xerxes’ camp and informed them of a path through the mountains that would bypass the Greek defensive position.

On the third day, the Persian forces maneuvered along the path in an attempt to outflank the Greeks. King Leonidas upon becoming aware of this threat immediately convened a war council where he insisted the majority of the Greek forces retreat and regroup for a later stand whilst he would personally lead the final rear guard cover along with his Spartan warriors.

The Spartans took up their position on the narrow pass once again; this time joined by 700 Thespians, 400 Thebans and a few hundred of the Spartan helots. The Persians meanwhile sent waves of 10,000 men against the Spartan shield wall. The Spartans fought back each wave, time and time again. Eventually their spears broke from the continual onslaught. They quickly switched to their short swords, and once those broke, they fought back with their bare hands and teeth. The Spartan forces fought practically to the last man. King Leonidas himself fell at the hands of Persian archers. But the Spartan sacrifice delayed the Persian horde enough to allow the remaining Greek forces time to retreat without suffering further casualties, regroup and reinforce for the next battle.

Following the Battle of Thermopylae, Greek land and naval forces pulled back from their previous positions and evacuated Athens. The retreat was however a tactical one, and eventually the Greeks landed a few decisive victories against Xerxes’ forces – primarily at the Battle of Plataea in 479 B.C. and at the naval Battle of Salamis the following year. These battles ultimately served to put an end to Xerxes’ invasion of Greece.

Finally, the heroic Spartan defense has been used throughout history as a patriotic rallying cry and great example of what a vastly outnumbered force can accomplish when using their training, equipment, terrain and courage to their advantage.

This Slaughter Was One Of Malta's Most Epic
This Slaughter Was One Of Malta's Most Epic

Jumping back 50 or so years and we find the order known as the Knights Hospitaller. Similar in origin to the better known crusading order of The Templars, but rather than abandoning the religious pursuit of taking back the holy lands and eventually being exterminated by the French in 1312, the Hospitallers island hopped around the Mediterranean fighting any Muslims or other Christian heretics they could find.

In the middle of the 16th century, the Knights Hospitaller had set up shop on the Mediterranean island of Malta. They were gifted the island by the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V, in exchange for a falcon every year! It was here that they set their sites upon the Ottoman Turks, a devoutly Muslim empire that at the time controlled the majority of the Mediterranean coastline. From their island base on Malta, the Knights routinely intercepted and destroyed all the Ottoman shipping they could find. Some sources describe them taking over 3,000 Muslim and Jewish slaves during the course of their naval engagements.

Eventually, the Ottomans had had enough and dispatched one of the largest fleets since antiquity to capture Malta and destroy the pesky Knights Hospitaller once and for all. In total, the Ottomans amassed almost 50,000 troops. All just to take on what at most could have been 2,500 Knights and around 7,000 Maltese civilians. The Ottomans took their victory as inevitable. It was perhaps this overconfidence that led to their utter defeat.

The Ottomans strategy started with trying to capture the Fort St. Elmo as a secure landing point for their armada. The battle to take it from the Knights was a bloody affair lasting almost a month. The Ottomans finally captured it but after a month of sieging the Fort was essentially reduced to rubble. Moreover, Jean Parisot de Valette, the Grand Master of the Knights, had ordered the harvesting of all crops in order to starve the invading Turks. He also had all the wells poisoned before they retreated from Fort St. Elmo. Altogether, the battle to capture the Fort cost the Turks around 6,000 men.

Jean de Valette wasn’t quite finished yet though, he executed all his Turkish prisoners and had their heads fired from cannons at the Ottomans. The Knights managed to survive through four months of sieging, before the Ottomans finally broke the main walls. What the invading Ottoman forces found were the last several hundred remaining Knights who railed around de Valette and cut a bloody swath through the Turks. A Spanish relief force of 8,000 soldiers finally landed and the Turks were forced into a hasty retreat back to their boats. Their invasion of Malta - a complete failure. Recent historical analysis shows the Ottomans lost around 10,000 men, not including hired mercenaries.

This War Changed An Entire EMPIRE
This War Changed An Entire EMPIRE

Here’s another bloody and insanely uneven battle from antiquity for you. The Vandals were a tribe of Germans who had, thanks to the vacuum created by the fall of the Roman Empire, managed to conquer vast swathes of territory including a major chunk of North Africa from their base in the famous city of Carthage. The Eastern Roman Empire (also known as the Byzantine Empire) meanwhile saw themselves as the true continuation of the Roman Empire and wanted to rebuild it to its full glory. This evidently meant that the Vandals would have to be taught a lesson or two and sent home. The primary goal for the Byzantines was to liberate the port city of Carthage from the Vandal clutches. Added to that was the fact that the Byzantines saw the Vandals as being Christian heretics and back then that was often reason enough for war.

King Gelimer led the Vandals at the time alongside his brother Tzazon, had a force of 50,000 troops by Carthage whilst the Byzantines chose to give General Belisarius a measly 15,000 men and a slap on the back. Luckily for General Belisarius, the Vandals were not home when he came knocking at the gates of Carthage. The city opened its doors to the Byzantine forces without much bloodshed at all. The Vandals meanwhile were preoccupied with their raiding runs along the Mediterranean coast. When they finally returned to home base in Carthage, they were surprised to say the least to find the Byzantine forces waiting for them, swords sharpened.

King Gelimer had to wait for his brother Tzazon to bring back his forces from their expedition in Sardinia, before engaging with General Belisarius. He took his time to sow sedition amongst the Byzantine forces; he attempted to bribe the Hun mercenaries that made up a large portion of the General’s army. Finally in early December, 553 A.C., Tzazon brought his forces together with King Gelimer and destroyed the aqueduct that supplied Carthage with clean water.

General Belisarius fearing the unstable loyalty of his hired mercenaries decided that offense was the best defense and brought his forces out of Carthage. He then made directly for the Vandal forces assembled around fifty kilometers west of Carthage. Despite the being completely outnumbered General Belisarius gave to order to his cavalry to charge the Vandals with everything they had. On the third charge, the Byzantine forces landed a crippling blow by killing Tzazon. Upon seeing the carnage, King Gelimer lost heart completely and ordered an immediate retreat. The vandals began to flee the battle, whilst the Byzantine forces began to mop up, capturing or killing over 3,000 men.

The Byzantine victory at Tricamarum secured North Africa for the Eastern Roman Empire and would go on to serve as a launching point for their invasion of Italy and ultimately uniting both the Western and Eastern Roman Empires.

Australia's BIGGEST Victory In The Vietnam War
Australia's BIGGEST Victory In The Vietnam War

The next David v. Goliath battle comes to us by way of the Vietnam War. The Battle of Long Tan took place on August 8, 1966 in the middle of a rubber plantation. D Company, of the Australian Army made up of only 108 men found them surrounded by over 2,500 Vietcong forces.

It all began after the Australian forward base at Nui Dat came under heavy artillery attack from the Vietcong. The Australians didn’t particularly care for the unwelcome mortar attacks and so understandably dispatched a few companies to find the location of the besieging artillery and neutralize the annoyance. The last company to be sent out on patrol was D Company, they failed to find the artillery position however instead they came across an entire Vietcong infantry regiment who were lying in wait.

The Vietcong were heavily armed, and tore into D Company as they patrolled through the rubber trees. Monsoon rains and the young short rubber trees obscured visibility for D Company as they struggled to pinpoint their attackers location, whilst digging into a somewhat defensible position. One of the retreating Australian platoons accidentally came upon the flank of a Vietcong force, which had been moving into position to assault D Company. The Australians opened fire inflicting heavy casualties and forcing the enemy to beat a hasty retreat. The 108 men of D Company held out for hours in shallow foxholes, shooting at an enemy they could barely see. Heavy Australian artillery support was monumental in helping them survive the continuous wave after wave of Vietcong attacks. The situation became so dire that at one point after many hours of fighting, D Company was down to its last 100 rounds. Finally a RAAF helicopter finally broke official orders and flew through the monsoon and heavy enemy fire to deliver much needed ammunition to the besieged Aussies.

After around 5 hours of non-stop fighting, reinforcements arrived in the form of A Company, 6 RAR, comprising of several armoured personnel carriers. They broke through the encircling Vietcong and forced them to abandon their siege and beat a hasty retreat.

The following few days found the Australian forces discovering hundreds of Vietcong corpses, it was then that it became clear the heavy defeat that D Company had inflicted upon the Vietcong. The Australians suffered 18 casualties and 24 wounded, whilst the Vietcong are estimated to have lost 245 men with a further 350 being wounded.

How 62,000 Were Defeated By A Mere 750 British
How 62,000 Were Defeated By A Mere 750 British

The Battle of Plassey was a gigantic victory of the British East India Company over the Nawab of Bengal and his French allies on June 23, 1757. Now not all of the battles in this list were won with military tactics or bravery. And the Battle of Plassey was a great example of befriending your enemies’ enemy as well as British duplicity.

The King of Bengal, Siraj-ud-daulah, had ordered the British East India Company to stop expanding their fortifications in Bengal. The British meanwhile had no intention of stopping and were spoiling for a fight. They were seemingly not even fazed when their meager force of 3,000 troops (made up mainly of lightly armed Indian grunts and only actually 750 British soldiers) came up against a force of around 62,000 Indian soldiers.

The British forces were under the control of Col. Robert Clive who made the genius move of bribing Mir Jafar, the commander of the Bengali’s army. Pretty genius move considering what came next. When the two opposing sides met on the battlefield they began firing artillery at each other, before a rainstorm interrupted the hostilities. The British forces managed to quickly cover their gunpowder and cannons. A portion of the Bengali forces not under the control of Mir Jafar charged the British position assuming their artillery had been soaked and rendered as useless as their own. They were wrong.

As the storm passed, the British guns opened fired, mowing down scores of Indian troops. This blundering initial attack combined with Mir Jafar keeping the majority of the army out of combat forced the King of Bengal to hastily retreat. With the Battle won, the British rewarded Mir Jafar for his duplicity by installing him as the ruler for the region. The British would go onto capture Calcutta to the north and strengthen their position on the sub-continent, eventually pushing out both the Dutch and French from the region.

This King's Ego Killed Over 15,000 In One Battle
This King's Ego Killed Over 15,000 In One Battle

One of the best examples of a vastly outnumbered David defeating a Goliath took place on 12 September 1213, at the Battle of Muret in France. The Crusader army of Simon IV de Montfort defeated the Catharist, Aragonese and Catalan forces of Peter II of Aragon. This battle took place during a particularly bloody period of European history with various heretical Christian movements springing up only to be brutally cut down by marauding Holy Crusaders.

The combined forces of Aragon, Catalan and Cathar numbered a Lord of the Ring’s sized 4000 cavalry, with an extra thirty to forty thousand infantry thrown in, just because they could. Meanwhile the Crusader army had only 870 mailed cavalry, which thankfully included 270 knights, basically the tanks of the medieval period. The numbers did not look good, and Simon de Montfort knew it, but he had a plan.

The leader of the Crusader army waited for the Aragonese forces to breach the main gate of Muret. As Peter’s infantry began to pour into the city, thinking that victory was theirs, the French Knights exited the city via a side entrance. The Knights then skirted around the city walls and charged into the besieging army’s flank. The heavily armored knights tore through the Aragonese forces, catching them completely off-guard. King Peter II of Aragon was almost immediately surrounded and despite his screams of “I am the King!” was cut down to size.

With the Aragon king dead, panic and disorder spread throughout the Aragonese forces. Most thought that once they had breached Muret’s walls they had essentially won the battle and then suddenly their king lay dead at their feet. The besieging army was quickly routed and fled towards the Garonne River by Montfort’s Knights, who easily picked them off by the thousands. The Crusaders inflicted a mind boggling 20,000 casualties on Peter II’s forces, whilst only sustaining 8 themselves. Yes, 8, as in single digits! Morale of the story, never underestimate French Knights.

This Is Where CHEMICAL Warfare Began
This Is Where CHEMICAL Warfare Began

The ancient world was also full of examples of David vs. Goliath battles. One of the best Roman examples comes from the year 69 B.C. and the Battle of Tigranocerta. Historical estimates vary, but the Roman general, Lucullus, had around 40,000 troops in his engagement versus the Armenian King, Tigranes, who fielded about 400,000 troops.

The reason for this war against Armenia was the usual Roman mixture of bringing civilization to the barbarian hordes, a hunt for fortune and glory, as well as punishment for harboring Rome’s enemies. The city of Tigranocerta was still in the midst of being built when the Romans marched up knocking on the door. Lucullus brought his legions to the city and attempted to siege it. The city though unfinished was still heavily fortified, with walls that supposedly towered 25 meters high. Despite the use of siege weapons, the Romans were rebuffed by the city defenders who’s use of naphtha is one of the earliest forms of chemical warfare in history.

Meanwhile, King Tigranes who for the longest time could not believe that Lucullus was actually in Armenia, let alone sieging his newest city, marshaled a huge force to march on Tigranocerta and relieve the siege. The Romans saw the approaching hoard of death and leaving only a small force to maintain the cities siege, pulled back to a defensive position across the Batman-Su River. Lucullus feigned a retreat with a portion of his forces, but in a stroke of brilliance or insanity (depending on who you ask), personally led the Roman charge on the Armenian position atop a hill. His heavily trained infantry broke the Armenian cavalry and sowed chaos and confusion amongst their barely trained peasant infantry.

Having had their strongest point broken by Lucullus’s charge up the hill, the rest of the Armenian forces scattered and attempted to flee the battlefield. The Romans however were not in a mood to take prisoners or let their enemy escape. They outflanked the retreating Armenians and put them to the sword. While Roman accounts of only losing five men is completely unrealistic, one thing is for sure, the amount of losses both sides sustained was utterly disproportionate. Estimates for losses on the Armenian side vary from 10,000 to 100,000 men.

With King Tigranes in the wind and hiding from the Roman forces, the city of Tigranocerta opened its gates to its conquerors. Lucullus’ army began looting the city, and it was literally taken apart piece by piece.

Rome Destroyed The British By 200x
Rome Destroyed The British By 200x

Almost 200 years later in 61 A.D., another great stand by an underdog force occurred. Following the recent conquest of Britain by the Romans, the Britons united under Queen Boudica and decided to overthrow the Romans. Back then simply waiting for reinforcements to arrive from Rome was not really an option. The Roman governor of Briton was a man called Gaius Paulinus, and so what did Gaius do, he took his only two legions, numbering around 10,000 men and did what Romans were best at... outmaneuvering and outfighting anything the enemy could throw at them.

Paulinus chose the field of battle strategically, a narrow field that was flanked on either side by dense forest. The battlefield essentially acted as a giant funnel of death for the raging British warriors. Boudica’s forces numbered around 230,000, although this also included many women and children that made up the supply wagon train that trailed the actual army. The Roman’s however used this to their advantage. With a giant unruly wagon train behind them the British forces were effectively pinned in a narrow chokepoint against the infamous Roman shield wall. As if that wasn’t enough, Boudica’s troops were very lightly armored; Paulinus took full advantage of this and used his rear ranks to pump them full of javelins (known as pila). Those British troops that managed to avoid being impaled then had to wait in line to be butchered by the Romans, due to the narrow chokepoint.

The Romans also made sure to cycle the legionaries in the front line after every other wave of Britons, to prevent fatigue and ensure that the Britons were always facing fresh troops. When the overconfident Britons finally realized their folly and attempted to retreat, they found themselves penned in by their own wagon train. With nowhere to run they had no choice but to try and fight against the slowly encroaching and completely impenetrable Roman shield wall.

Roman historian Tacitus claimed that only 400 Romans fell, whilst over 80,000 Britons died, including Queen Boudica who supposedly poisoned herself. The Romans dealt a crushing blow to the rebellion, killing all the women, children and even pack animals that the rebels had brought to the battle. This victory ensured Roman control over southern Britain, whilst the North remained a volatile region.

Poland Warred With Sweden AND Russia And Won
Poland Warred With Sweden AND Russia And Won

Poland was often known as the unfortunate country that was almost constantly being invaded. Being sandwiched between two of the historical greatest continental powers, Germany and Russia, since its creation. However in the early 17th century, the Polish Commonwealth decided to go on the offensive and conquer some land for itself. At this point in history Russia was slightly pre-occupied with civil war so the Poles thought it would make a great-distracted target.

Despite the fact that Russia was even at the time the largest single country in the world, they didn’t feel like giving up some of its territory to the Polish. The Russian’s allied with their often enemy Sweden to fight back against the Poles. The Polish moved quickly when they set their eyes on the city of Smolensk. They established a blockade and began sieging the city. The Russians and Swedes meanwhile mustered a gargantuan force of 30,000 troops, mostly mercenaries to come to Smolensk’s defense.

The one thing that stood in the way for the Russian/Swedish forces... were around five thousand Polish cavalry. Now these were no ordinary cavalry, no these were Polish hussars who were heavily armored shock cavalry famous for their battlefield prowess. The Russian also failed to gain accurate intelligence on the size of the Polish forces – they had no idea just how significantly the Polish were outnumbered. This was key as it led to the Russian squandering their numerical advantage.

The battle itself was an example of two very different tactics: the Russian cavalry favored riding up to the Polish lines, discharging their pistols, and then falling back into formation to reload, a strategy called “caracole.” It was un-surprisingly not very effective. Meanwhile the Polish forces utilized a basic – charge anything that moves and stab it to death with their swords tactic. It would prove to be far more effective.

The Poles drove ferociously at the Russian forces on all fronts, pushing them back in to their own war camps. Eventually, the Polish army managed to separate the Russians from their hired mercenaries into two different camps. Whilst the Russians still maintained a large numerical superiority, the Polish wisely began negotiations with the mercenaries. Eventually an agreement was reached and the mercenaries were allowed to leave after promising to never join Russian against the Polish Commonwealth again. Several hundred of them even joined up with the Polish forces and continued the assault on the Russian war camp.

The Russians and Swedes were encircled and forced to surrender their own camp. Luckily for them the Commonwealth troops were exhausted after 5 hours of continuous fighting and more interested in looting than in slaughtering the survivors. The rest of the Russian/Swedish expedition was allowed to retreat unharmed.

Happiness Secrets REVEALED With One Hack
Happiness Secrets REVEALED With One Hack

What happens when you look at the happiest people and scientifically analyze what they have in common? Researchers did just that. There was a clear answer to what differentiated these people from everyone else -- and it wasn’t money, smarts, age, gender or race. It was strong social relationships.

Via The Happiness Advantage: The Seven Principles of Positive Psychology That Fuel Success and Performance at Work: Turns out, there was one -- and only one -- characteristic that distinguished the happiest 10 percent from everybody else: the strength of their social relationships. My empirical study of well-being among 1,600 Harvard undergraduates found a similar result -- social support was a far greater predictor of happiness than any other factor, more than GPA, family income, SAT scores, age, gender or race. In fact, the correlation between social support and happiness was 0.7. This may not sound like a big number, but for researchers it’s huge -- most psychology findings are considered significant when they hit 0.3. The point is, the more social support you have, the happier you are.

The Grant Study (which followed a group of men for their entire lives) found that “the capacity to love and be loved was the single strength most clearly associated with subjective well-being at age eighty.”
Via Flourish: A Visionary New Understanding of Happiness and Well-being: Vaillant’s [who directed the study for more than three decades] insight came from his seminal work on the Grant Study, an almost 70-year (and ongoing) longitudinal investigation of the developmental trajectories of Harvard College graduates. (This study is also referred to as the Harvard Study.) In a study led by Derek Isaacowitz, we found that the capacity to love and be loved was the single strength most clearly associated with subjective well-being at age 80.

If you do one thing today to be happier, spend time with friends.

Not spending more time with people we love is something we regret the most.

Is Boredom The REAL Cause Of Your Unhappiness?
Is Boredom The REAL Cause Of Your Unhappiness?

The happiest people are those who are very busy but don’t feel rushed. Who among us are the most happy? Newly published research suggests it is those fortunate folks who have little or no excess time, and yet seldom feel rushed. I know, you’re tired. You want a break. But doing nothing is not the answer. Too much time is a burden. Surveys continue to show the least happy group to be those who quite often have excess time. Boredom, it seems, is burdensome.

So what do you need to be doing?
Things you’re good at.

"Signature strengths" are the things you are uniquely talented at -- and using them brings you joy.

People who deliberately exercised their signature strengths on a daily basis became significantly happier for months.

Via The Happiness Advantage: The Seven Principles of Positive Psychology That Fuel Success and Performance at Work: When 577 volunteers were encouraged to pick one of their signature strengths and use it in a new way each day for a week, they became significantly happier and less depressed than control groups. And these benefits lasted: Even after the experiment was over, their levels of happiness remained heightened a full month later. Studies have shown that the more you use your signature strengths in daily life, the happier you become.

The old saying, “those who do what they love never work a day in their life” seems true.

Why Your Job Is Ruining Your Mood
Why Your Job Is Ruining Your Mood

Karl Pillemer of Cornell University interviewed nearly 1,500 people age 70 to 100+ for his book 30 Lessons for Living: Tried and True Advice from the Wisest Americans.
What piece of advice were they more adamant about than any other? More adamant about than lessons regarding marriage, children and happiness?

Do not stay in a job you dislike.

Via 30 Lessons for Living: Tried and True Advice from the Wisest Americans: You know those nightmares where you are shouting a warning but no sound comes out? Well, that’s the intensity with which the experts wanted to tell younger people that spending years in a job you dislike is a recipe for regret and a tragic mistake. There was no issue about which the experts were more adamant and forceful. Over and over they prefaced their comments with, “If there’s one thing I want your readers to know it’s . . .” From the vantage point of looking back over long experience, wasting around two thousand hours of irretrievable lifetime each year is pure idiocy.

Take a lesson from people who have already seen most of what life has to offer: do not waste time in a job you hate.

Why Is Planning The Real SECRET To Happiness?
Why Is Planning The Real SECRET To Happiness?

It’s ironic that we treasure happiness so much yet often treat it as this random bit of alchemy we luck into. That’s silly. Passively waiting for happiness is a losing proposition. Happiness needs regular appointments.
Schedule the things that make you happy.

Is this overly simple and obvious? Yes. Do you regularly do it? Probably not.

In my interview with Stanford professor Jennifer Aaker, author of The Dragonfly Effect, she explained: "…what is interesting is that there is often a gap between where people say they want to spend their time and how they actually spend their time… you find a large percentage know what projects and people energize them, but do not in fact spend much time on those projects and with those people. …once you identify the activities and people with whom you want to spend more time, calendaring your time thoughtfully becomes critical. When you put something on a calendar, you’re more likely to actually do that activity -- partly because you’re less likely to have to make an active decision whether you should do it -- because it’s already on your calendar."

Look at the things that make you happy and plan them into your calendar and schedule.

Do not wait for happiness. Game the system. Happiness card-counting. Happiness Moneyball. Refuse to leave it to chance.

Can You Be TRULY Happy Without Purpose?
Can You Be TRULY Happy Without Purpose?

No one confuses the type of happiness ice cream brings with the positive feelings one gets from raising a good kid. Happiness is a vague word. We need happy feelings but we also need meaning in our lives.

And research shows they are related but distinct: Findings suggest that happiness is mainly about getting what one wants and needs, including from other people or even just by using money.

In contrast, meaningfulness was linked to doing things that express and reflect the self, and in particular to doing positive things for others. Meaningful involvements increase one’s stress, worries, arguments, and anxiety, which reduce happiness. (Spending money to get things went with happiness, but managing money was linked to meaningfulness.) Happiness went with being a taker more than a giver, while meaningfulness was associated with being a giver more than a taker.
Researchers at Tohoku University in Japan did a 7-year study of over 43,000 adults age 40 to 79 asking if they had ikigai (a Japanese term for meaning in life) and then tracked their health.

People with ikigai were much more likely to be alive 7 years later.

Via Pursuing the Good Life: 100 Reflections on Positive Psychology: Even when likely confounds were taken into account, ikigai predicted who was still alive after 7 years. Said another way, 95% of respondents who reported a sense of meaning in their lives were alive 7 years after the initial survey versus about 83% of those who reported no sense of meaning in their lives. The lack of ikigai was in particular associated with death due to cardiovascular disease (usually stroke), but not death due to cancer.
Running marathons is painful. Completing them is awesome. Studying is boring. Having a degree feels great. Happiness in the moment is not everything.

In his TED talk, Daniel Kahneman, Nobel Prize winner and author of Thinking, Fast and Slow discussed two different types of happiness that sound very similar to the distinction between happiness and meaning.

The first is being happy in your life. It is happiness that you experience immediately and in the moment.

The second is being happy about your life. It is the happiness that exists in memory when we talk about the past and the big picture. Stories are key here. This is closer to "meaning."

Giving Is Good, But There's One MAJOR Catch.
Giving Is Good, But There's One MAJOR Catch.

Giving makes us happier than receiving. In fact, it can create a feedback loop of happiness in your life. Helping others reach their goals brings joy. Doing nice things for others today can literally make you happier for the rest of the week.

However, being a martyr stresses you out and is bad for your health. So don't spend too much time giving.

Via Give and Take: A Revolutionary Approach to Success: Research shows that on the job, people who engage in selfless giving end up feeling overloaded and stressed, as well as experiencing conflict between work and family. This is even true in marriages: in one study of married couples, people who failed to maintain an equilibrium between their own needs and their partner’s needs became more depressed over the next six months.

What to do? Do all your giving one day a week.

Via Give and Take: A Revolutionary Approach to Success: The chunkers achieved gains in happiness; the sprinklers didn’t. Happiness increased when people performed all five giving acts in a single day, rather than doing one a day. Lyubomirsky and colleagues speculate that “spreading them over the course of a week might have diminished salience and power or made them less distinguishable from participants' habitual kind of behavior.”

Volunteering Tips To MAXIMIZE Your Reward
Volunteering Tips To MAXIMIZE Your Reward

So exactly how much should you give? Remember the 100-hour rule. One hundred hours a year -- in other words, two hours per week.

Via Give and Take: A Revolutionary Approach to Success: One hundred seems to be a magical number when it comes to giving. In a study of more than two thousand Australian adults in their mid-60s, those who volunteered between 100 and 800 hours per year were happier and more satisfied with their lives than those who volunteered fewer than 100 or more than 800hours annually. In another study, American adults who volunteered at least one hundred hours in 1998 were more likely to be alive in 2000. There were no benefits of volunteering more than 100 hours. This is the 100-hour rule of volunteering. It appears to be the range where giving is maximally energizing and minimally draining.

A hundred hours a year breaks down to just two hours a week. Research shows that if people start volunteering two hours a week, their happiness, satisfaction and self-esteem go up a year later.

Want to be a giver and be happier? Share this post with a friend and spread some happiness.

These Tricks Will Make You Instantly More Attractive
These Tricks Will Make You Instantly More Attractive

Much of the research into what women find attractive in men has focused on their earning power or how afraid they are of commitment. Increasingly, however, effort has been directed toward determining what women find physically attractive in a man, as these traits may carry just as much, if not more, weight in the dating game. Here we bring you a roundup of the physical traits that scientists have suggested women look for in a man, along with tips on how you can use this information to become irresistible.

Ratings for attractiveness tended to decrease as the amount of chest and abdominal hair increased. To look better topless before a big date, shave the night before, wax a couple of days earlier, or start investing in laser hair removal or thinking about other hair removal trends in general.

A Shaving Tip That Can Change Your Whole Face?

Women in the most fertile phase of their cycle appear to prefer men with chiseled jawlines. Scientists hypothesize that the high testosterone levels responsible for the appearance of masculine facial traits at puberty also suppress immune functioning, meaning that men with this facial feature may have strong immune systems and therefore be a good catch from a genetic perspective. Men with small chins can use facial hair to create the look of a more prominent jawline. More specifically, a beard that covers the chin area will add volume to a smaller face and make it seem very manly.

The way you smell may play an important role in whether or not a given woman will be attracted to you. Some studies on the science of scent and attraction have suggested that women unconsciously use their sense of smell to determine how different genetically a man is from them (essentially, the more different your genetic material is, the more attracted to you she will be).

Kickstarter For SEX May Be The Next Great Evolution
Kickstarter For SEX May Be The Next Great Evolution

In an ingenious and super heartfelt, but really stingy, attempt at finding true love, a barman in the UK is crowdsourcing all his future dates on a popular Kickstarter-esque site.

I get it. Dating is pricey and true love is a tough find. So why not get everyone else to pay for it? Right. Like even the women you'll potentially end up falling madly in love with...

It's foolproof. Except that this is maybe the least romantic, most self-serving attempt at social media promotion we've ever seen. If buddy was a real romantic, he'd at least promise to pay his true love back if they hit it off. Or go to all the shitty bands she likes and host a bunch of friend dinners with her shitty friends while never complaining for at least the first three years. What? It's January. I'm grumpy. Get off my back already.
