  • Why Do People Have ‘Outie’ Belly Buttons?

    cdn.lifebuzz.com_images_164986_lifebuzz-a0a08d81eb27d07319931a9502cd87b9-thumb_800

    The idea and appearance of any belly buttons can be strange. Part of the reason for this is because of the belly button's isolated location. It isn't in a place that we can easily look at, and so when we start to examine our own, it might look a little weird. Another thing is that it isn't smooth like the rest of our bodies.

    And then there's the question 'are you an innie or an outie?' that kids might ask in grade school.

    An estimated 90% of all people have innies, which means that 10% are left with outies. Some sources say the number of people with outies is even lower. But how do people get them?

    Shortly after we are born, our umbilical cord, which was used to transport nutrients from the mother to the baby during pregnancy, is cut. Many people believe that an outie can be formed when a doctor cuts the umbilical cord a certain way or at a certain distance, but there is no evidence that proves this to be true. An outie bellybutton forms from extra scar tissue or an umbilical hernia, when stomach muscles do not fuse back together properly.

    In general, there are no health differences caused by an innie or outie bellybutton. If you feel pain in that area, however, there is a small possibility of incarceration, when abdominal matter gets stuck in the hernia, so make sure to get it checked by your doctor.

    Continue reading for more interesting facts about outies below.

    How Outies Are Formed

    Outies can be formed after the umbilical cord is cut. The ‘bump’ that you associate with an outie is usually extra scar tissue or an umbilical hernia.

    Outies Are Cleaner Than Innies

    Even though innies are more common, people with outies are thought to have cleaner bellybuttons because they are less likely to build up lint, dirt, and bacteria.

    A product or object must be functional, efficient, have a clear and specific reason for its existence, whether it's decorative, informational, educational, or instructional. Engineers, designers, and companies are just not going to waste their time coming up with a sophisticated (in some cases) piece of equipment that has no use, or a building that is not accessible, or a sign that is not meant to be read. They're too busy building our tomorrow and… Baah, who am I kidding? Take a look at the most ridiculous, pointless things on this uber weird planet.

  • Student Slams $10,000 Half Court Shot, How She Spends The Money… Oh Yeah!

    cdn.lifebuzz.com_images_164952_lifebuzz-e199c93f0f31882caab49251e3b2a8e6-thumb_800

    Lots of people dream of what they would do if they sank a half court shot at a basketball game for a lot of money. It's an event that takes place all the time at basketball games across the country. It usually happens at halftime or during a stoppage of play. But it's only the rare occasion that the shot is ever made. Sponsors for the events feel pretty safe in putting up their cash or vehicles as a prize because most of the time they go unclaimed.

    But when Kansas University student Jordan Stiers got involved, she made sure that her chances were good. After all, there was $10,000 on the line. But she didn't have to make the shot herself. She was allowed to choose anyone in the building that wasn't a player. She picked out Kansas University's Director of Basketball Operations, Brennan Bechard, and he didn't disappoint.

    Bechard took a warm up shot but missed and things looked dim. But when it counted he launched a perfect shot that got nothing but net. The crowd went crazy and Bechard was mobbed in celebration by a crowd of friends while Stiers just stood there in shock.

  • This Woman Was A Victim Of Rape And Now Her Attacker Is Suing Her

    media.galaxant.com_000_480_597_340x252-1475645739

    There is no act more devastating or personally intrusive than rape.

    There is not one single way to more completely steal one’s…well, everything. Rape leaves the victim feeling exposed, raw, and vulnerable. Sometimes, the only solace a victim can find in their recovery is justice. Knowing that their abuser is being held accountable can be an important step in moving forward.

    For one California woman, justice seemed to be out of reach, as she was victimized by her attacker not once, but twice. After sitting in court while he plead no contest to the lesser crime of felony assault, she was served with a lawsuit that he filed against her. Claiming defamation of character, he tried to pull her back into his sick game of victimization.

    This is just unbelievable.

    video-player-present

    Thankfully, the woman was represented by an attorney who was entirely in her corner and the case was heard by a judge with no patience for those who violate basic human rights.

    I can only hope that she and her family now feel a sense of justice, and that they can finally put this painful chapter of their lives behind them.

    I like to pretend that I know what I’m doing 99.9 percent of the time, but behind the scenes, I’m a total hot mess.

    Don’t get me wrong, I always try my best and approach things with a positive mindset, but sometimes reality sets in and I fall flat on my face. What can I say? I’m human. We’re only midway through the week and although I can see rest and relaxation at the end of the tunnel, the struggle is REAL, my friends.

    Let me be the first to admit that I can relate to this corgi pup on a spiritual level.

  • Studies Show That There’s A Good Chance You’re Overmedicating Your Children

    media.galaxant.com_000_480_543_340x252-1475625396

    Getting your kids to swallow medicine when they’re sick is hard enough, but could the way you administer medicine actually make them sicker?

    According to a study published by Dr. Shonna Yin, an associate professor from the NYU School of Medicine, parents are four times more likely to make a dosage error when using the cups that accompany many over-the-counter drugs.

    “Our study found that parents with lower health literacy are at greater risk for making dosing errors,” Dr. Yin told CNN.

    "Our study found that parents with lower health literacy are at greater risk for making dosing errors," Dr. Yin told <a href="http://www.cnn.com/2016/09/12/health/overdosing-kids-medicine-syringe/index.html" target="_blank">CNN</a>.

    She notes that the variety of measurement units and methods used on medicine bottles can prove confusing to parents. That confusion can lead to poor dosage.

    This newly released research is part of a larger study funded by the National Institutes of Health. In the experiments, over 2,000 caregivers with a child eight or younger were tested on their health literacy. The caregivers were then tested on their abilities to measure correct dosages of medicine.

    The study revealed that almost 85 percent of the time, caregivers made at least one dosage error when administering medication. Approximately 64 percent of the errors were directly related to overdosing more specifically.

    The first step in protecting your child’s health is to understand the signs of an overdose. According to Dr. Stan Spinner, signs of an overdose include abdominal pain, agitation, nausea, vomiting, rapid heart rate, and increased blood pressure. These signs may sometimes go undiagnosed by parents and are simply shrugged off as being symptoms of childhood fussiness.

    Faulty packaging is essentially leading millions of parents to overdose their children in an attempt to make them feel better, so if you want to make sure you give the most accurate amount each time, consider buying a few syringes.

  • This Rescue Perfectly Demonstrates The Importance Of Respecting The Wild

    media.galaxant.com_000_480_540_340x252-1475624675

    Animals in nature are truly spectacular things to witness. The wild is where they belong and where they thrive.

    Unfortunately, that freedom is stolen from far too many wild animals.

    That’s just what happened to these two bear cubs just outside of Moscow. They were likely bought illegally and kept as pets, and as if that wasn’t bad enough, they were then abandoned in the woods when they became too big for their owners to care for.

    The authorities were alerted when local residents saw the bears still wearing the collars given to them by their previous owners. Found dehydrated and highly unprepared for life in the wild, the scene could have ended tragically had this team of officers not rescued them just in time.

    While these bear cubs could be saved, there are still countless other animals lost to captive living every year.

    If you would like to do your part to help end this heartbreaking practice, you can visit the Captive Animal Protection Society for more information.

  • 10 ‘Facts’ The Vice Presidential Candidates Got Wrong During Last Night’s Debate

    media.galaxant.com_000_480_620_340x252-1475691694

    The first Vice Presidential Debate of the 2016 election cycle was held on Tuesday, October 4 at Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia.

    And as is the case for most debates, facts did not always reign supreme when Governor Mike Pence (R-IN) and Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA) started talking. Although human error is inevitable, it’s always useful to parse out where our leaders fall short during debates since they’re vying to, you know, help run the country and all that.

    Here are 10 points at which our potential VPs missed the mark last night.

    1. Mike Pence: “Well, first off, thank you, Elaine, and thank you to Norwood University for the wonderful hospitality and the Commission on Presidential Debates.”

    Mike Pence: "Well, first off, thank you, Elaine, and thank you to Norwood University for the wonderful hospitality and the Commission on Presidential Debates."

    Getty Images

    The Facts: This debate was held at Longwood University, not Norwood.

    2. Mike Pence: “We’ve seen an economy stifled by more taxes, more regulation, a war on coal and a failing healthcare reform come to be known as Obamacare.”

    Mike Pence: "We&rsquo;ve seen an economy stifled by more taxes, more regulation, a war on coal and a failing healthcare reform come to be known as Obamacare."

    Getty Images

    The Facts: Although Pence is correct in stating that taxes have increased, they’ve really only gone up for the wealthiest in the country. The top rate under Obama for the super rich rose from 35 percent to 39.6 percent.

    Healthcare is a point of contention, but about 20 million more Americans have access to health insurance under the Affordable Care Act. To say that it is “failing” is not necessarily accurate on the coverage front, but changes must be made to better serve small business owners.

    3. Tim Kaine: “She worked a tough negotiation with nations around the world to eliminate the Iranian nuclear weapons program without firing a shot.”

    Tim Kaine: "She worked a tough negotiation with nations around the world to eliminate the Iranian nuclear weapons program without firing a shot."

    Getty Images

    The Facts: Final negotiations for the Iran Deal itself concluded in 2015 after Hillary Clinton finished her tenure as Secretary of State. That being said, a major priority of hers as Secretary was to increase international sanctions on Iran. Her role was integral but less direct than Kaine’s assessment.

    Kaine’s understanding of Iran Deal parameters is also faulty, since it did not eliminate Iran’s nuclear program. Instead, it forced the nation to discard stockpiles of medium and low enriched uranium and to allow officials to investigate nuclear facilities periodically. That being said, experts argue that this was the best possible outcome.

    4. Mike Pence: Together, he and Donald Trump will repeal all executive orders that “Barack Obama has signed that are stifling economic growth in this economy.”

    Mike Pence: Together, he and Donald Trump will repeal all executive orders that "Barack Obama has signed that are stifling economic growth in this economy."

    Getty Images

    The Facts: While this has become somewhat of a standby for Republicans, the critique is unsound. According to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, “Output has surpassed its pre-crisis peak by 10 percent, robust private-sector employment gains have sharply reduced unemployment, fiscal sustainability has been largely restored, and corporate profits are high” under President Obama.

    5. Mike Pence: “[Trump is] worth billions of dollars.”

    Mike Pence: "[Trump is] worth billions of dollars."

    Getty Images

    The Facts: Donald Trump’s financial status is murky, and his unwillingness to release his tax returns only leaves room for questions. This may not necessarily be a blatant lie, but it is shrouded in doubt due to lack of evidence. Studies have gathered data from across the spectrum, with Forbes estimating his net worth to be about $3.7 billion and journalist Timothy O’Brien making an estimate of about $250 million.

    6. Mike Pence: “Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine want to continue the policies of open borders, amnesty, catch and release, sanctuary cities, all the things that are driving wages down in this country.”

    Mike Pence: "Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine want to continue the policies of open borders, amnesty, catch and release, sanctuary cities, all the things that are driving wages down in this country."

    Getty Images

    The Facts: According to NPR correspondent John Burnett, “Most experts say there’s little to support the claim that workers in the country illegally take U.S. jobs.” When they do work, these laborers tend to drive down wages in low-level occupations, but publications like The New York Times argue that their presence actually drives up income for U.S.-born workers in mid and high-level positions.

    7. Tim Kaine: He claimed at one point in the debate that 15 million jobs were created under the Obama administration.

    Tim Kaine: He claimed at one point in the debate that 15 million jobs were created under the Obama administration.

    Getty Images

    The Facts: Politifact rated this statement as being half true, since only a few studies have claimed an increase of 15 million jobs under President Obama. In studies that cite more comprehensive data sets, the figure falls closer to 10.6 million. It’s a case of cherry-picking.

    8. Tim Kaine: “Donald Trump wrote a book and he said Social Security is a Ponzi scheme and privatization would be good for all of us.”

    Tim Kaine: "Donald Trump wrote a book and he said Social Security is a Ponzi scheme and privatization would be good for all of us."

    Getty Images

    The Facts: Although Trump has said in the past that he didn’t support Social Security and preferred privatization, he has remained largely on-message in this election cycle with promises to keep the program in its current format.

    9. Mike Pence: “We delivered $400 million in cash as a ransom payment for Americans held by the radical mullahs in Tehran.”

    Mike Pence: "We delivered $400 million in cash as a ransom payment for Americans held by the radical mullahs in Tehran."

    Getty Images

    The Facts: According to Politifact, which rated this claim as being mostly false, “Iran received the payment on the same day that American prisoners were released, but experts said this was not ransom. The United States owed Iran the money as part of a decades-long financial dispute.”

    10. Tim Kaine: At one point, he claimed that Trump and Pence both opposed a federal increase on the minimum wage.

    Tim Kaine: At one point, he claimed that Trump and Pence both opposed a federal increase on the minimum wage.

    Getty Images

    The Facts: Although Trump once said that he didn’t support such an increase, he did claim in July that the minimum wage needed to go up. When a journalist asked for clarification, he stated that it had to happen on a federal level. Pence is the one who has shown more reluctance.

    It’s safe to say that both VP candidates need to brush up a bit. For more details, check out NPR’s full fact-checking transcript here.

  • This Guy Just Built The Most Beautiful TV Wall For Under $200

    media.galaxant.com_000_480_560_340x252-1475625793

    TV stands work well to hold your electronics, but most of them aren’t really nice to look at.

    My TV sits on top of my dresser, but I’ve always wished that I had the time to build an awesome wall mount instead. While that definitely isn’t going down anytime soon because of my epic laziness, this guy made it happen without even spending a ton of money.

    Imgur user cwdobbins took the idea behind floating beds and used it to craft a seriously cool wall mount in his living room. The best part is that he did it all for under $200!

    This space was transformed into entertainment heaven after he was through with it!

    First, he bolted a piece of wood to the wall, creating a French cleat that would safely support the combined weight of the floating wall and TV.

    Then he hammered and welded a steel frame together out of angle iron.

    He wanted a cool backlight, so he installed LED strips onto the frame.

    Next, he cut some wood boards to size and sanded them before staining each piece.

    After applying some polyurethane finish, he got to work on screwing the boards into the frame.

    When all the boards were attached, it was finally time to hang this beauty up.

    It was too heavy for him to lift on his own, but his transmission jack turned out to be perfect for the job.

    In order to keep his TV’s electronic accessories off of the floor, he welded more angle iron into the shape of a box.

    Then he created a smaller mount for the case that would be directly attached to the wall.

    Lag bolts assured that it would be nice and sturdy.

    Then came the fun part — finally mounting the TV!

    The only thing left to do was complete the electronics case, so the crafter cut shelving boards to enclose the box.

    And for the front door of the box, he installed some hinges.

    After staining all the pieces, he screwed that bad boy into the mount.

    After plugging everything in, he was good to go!

    Not only does he have an amazing TV wall now, but his living room looks so much classier!

    I am so completely jealous of him.

    Something tells me that cwdobbins is going to have a lot of trouble ever leaving that room. If you’re dying for your own floating TV wall, you can find the full instructions here.

  • This Woman Had A Very Unexpected Singer Join In On Her Violin Performance

    We’ve seen some talented, music-loving animals here on ViralNova before. Remember these Bach-obsessed elephants? How about this group of melodic cows?

    And this four-legged critter is into music, too. When one woman decided to play her violin for her barnyard companion, I highly doubt she expected that he’d accompany her! The dynamic duo put on a show that is totally adorable (and 100 percent giggle worthy). This donkey really knows how to belt it out. And who can blame him for joining in? When you feel the music, you feel the music!

    It just gets funnier every single time, doesn’t it?
