Have a headache? Take a Tylenol. Your girlfriend dump you? Take a Tylenol. New research has revealed that Tylenol (acetaminophen) not only dulls physical pain, but emotional pain as well.
A study was conducted at the Ohio State University Medical Center which involved 80 participants, extra-strength Tylenol, placebos and some photographs. A portion of the 80 study participants received the Tylenol and the other participants received a placebo. Google Play reported that after giving the Tylenol an hour to take effect, all 80 were shown a series of photographs and their responses were monitored by the research team.
The photographs ranged from happy and cute images of small animals to disturbing images of hungry children. The study participants who received a placebo prior to viewing the photographs registered the response that were deem ‘normal’. The happy images made them happy while the disturbing images made them appropriately sad.
Not so for those who were given the extra-strength Tylenol. Those with acetaminophen in their blood stream had less of a response to either type of emotional images. They did not get as happy, nor as sad, as the placebo group when looking at the same photographs.
A couple of Tylenol may just be the dulling agent needed to get us through the many headaches and heartaches life sends our way.
If you love to travel, you know you need a passport. But one passport is as good as the next, right? Well, not exactly. Passports are only as good as the country it is issued from and the standing that nation has with other countries from around the world. If two countries are not on the best of terms, one country may not accept the passport from the other. Due to this, there are some passports that provide more travel power than others. So, before you set out on the next adventure, knowing the latest passport power statistics is important.
Currently, the United States and United Kingdom have the most accepted passports. Both are allowed access into 147 countries around the world. The next most powerful passports come from France, Germany and South Korean. Each of these nations are granted access into 145 different countries. Sweden and Italy are just behind on the list with 144 countries, while Denmark, Singapore, Finland, Netherlands, Japan and Luxembourg have access to 143 countries. Switzerland is next with 142 countries.
For anyone out of Canada wondering where they stack up on the list, they are allowed entrance into 140 countries without a problem. Australia, another former UK territory, is able to enter 138 countries without an issue, while New Zealand, its closest neighbor, can gain access to 139 countries.
Sam Tabar (thumbtack.com) has found that an interesting tidbit is Hong Kong passports can gain access to 136 countries while a mainland Chinese passport provides access to only 74.
