Science Has Finally Decoded What Dogs Dream And This Is Very Touching

We all know the silly scene of a dog, deep in slumber, energetically scuffling its paws in the mime of a fast run.

Looking from the outside, it’s hard not to wonder what’s going on in their heads. USA Network conducted a study on decoding sleep and asked Americans whose dreams they would like to hack if given the chance? 

And guess what, Pets were top of the list!!

Dr. Barrett who is a teacher and a Clinical and Evolutionary Psychologist at Harvard Medical School told "Humans dream about the same things they’re interested in by day, though more visually and less logically. And there’s no reason to think animals are any different. Since dogs are generally extremely attached to their human owners, it’s likely your dog is dreaming of your face, your smell and of pleasing or annoying you."

A tweet that puts Dr. Barrett’s finding is going viral with more than 64000 retweets and 96000 likes.

Now the next time you see your dog sleeping, it has a great probablity that they are dreaming about you.

Here's Why James Bond Says Sorry For Pan Bahar Ad!!

Pierce Brosnan Endorses Pan Bahar

Under fire for endorsing Pan Bahar, Hollywood star Pierce Brosnan said he was "deeply shocked and saddened" by the criticism and that the company had made "unauthorised and deceptive use" of his image to endorse its entire range of products.

In an exclusive statement to People magazine, Brosnan said he had agreed to advertise a single product only , and that it was presented as "all-natural containing neither tobacco, supari, nor any other harmful ingredient".

Since Brosnan's statement was reported late Thursday night, a comment from the manufacturers of Pan Bahar was not immediately available. The James Bond actor said he has demanded that the company remove his image from all their products.

Brosnan's contract says he was to advertise a "breath freshenertooth whitener" which wouldn't include an ingredient that turns saliva red. "Having endured, in my own personal life, the loss of my first wife and daughter as well as numerous friends to cancer, I am fully committed to supporting women's healthcare and research programs that improve human health and alleviate suffering," the statement said.

Brosnan said he had the "greatest love and affection for India and its people". He added, "I would never have entered into an agreement to promote a product in India that is dangerous to one's health."

The Second Trailer Of Assassin's Creed Looks Absolutely Incredible!!

Assassin's Creed

If the game didn’t get you hooked, the first trailer would have done its job.

Watch the first trailer here:

If the first trailer didn’t do it for you, this one definitely will. There’s very little we can discuss about the trailer. New characters, new locations, and the same concept. What else do you need?

 Let’s just watch it:

Resident Evil is the most successful movie franchise adapted from a video game till date, but if this trailer is anything to go by, the competition will soon be heating up. The unique concept of Assassins Creed gives them the freedom to release multiple sequels. 

Karnataka Billionaire's Daughter's Wedding Invite Includes A LCD Screen And This Is What It Looks Like!!

Wedding Card

Gali Janardhan Reddy, one of the richest politician of Karnataka as well as a mining baron has sent out a boxed invitation for her daughter’s wedding and is surely going down in history.

The wedding invitation box does not have a written invite but a LCD screen which comes alive as the box opens and plays a minute-long video of Reddy, his wife, bride Brahmani and groom Rajeev Reddy.

This exorbitant wedding invite comes at a time when people are trying to cut unnecessary cost from the wedding.  This wedding invite will put Bollywood movies to shame as it has all ingredients such as horses, lip-syncing, music, introduction of the couples, etc. 

Well, this won’t come as a surprise for those who have attended a wedding hosted by Reddy in which he spent Rs 20 crore and the guests were flown in via helicopter.

As per various reports, Shah Rukh Khan, Prabhudeva, Tamannah and Katrina Kaif may perform at the wedding, which is scheduled for November 16.

For those of you who can’t register who Reddy is, this former BJP member spent more than three years in jail in connection with the Ballary illegal mining case. He used to have a 15kg gold throne as well.

Exploding Galaxy Note 7 added to GTA V as a sticky bomb

The Note 7 bomb comes courtesy of Grand Theft Auto modder HitmanNiko. He achieved it by replacing the sticky bomb that’s already present in the game with a 3D model of the Galaxy Note 7.

Now that almost any citizen of the internet can conjure a funny photoshop or GIF with ease, the video game mod has become a high-bar of lowbrow goofs. Mods, short for modifications, are tweaks that change how a video game looks or operates. Sometimes the goal is to improve the game, elevating the visuals or adjusting the difficulty, but my favorite mods are the one-off jokes.

Grand Theft Auto 5 is a go-to home for the goofy mod. Last year, we cataloged some of our favorites: one dropped a whale from the sky, another constructed a skyscraper-sized skate ramp, jumbo jets fall from the fire, my favorite turned characters skeletons into JELL-O.

Three years into GTA 5, modders are still putting out new works. This week, we get a gag from modder HitmanNiko inspired by the serious recall of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. In the video, above, we see the game’s sticky explosives have been replaced with Samsung Galaxy Note 7s. The real Galaxy Note 7’s battery ran the risk of exploding. The virtual Galaxy Note 7 is far more extreme. See for yourself in the video above.

Yes, the mod is a little late to the Galaxy Note 7 goof parade, but this took time and dedication. This isn't your run-of-the-mill photoshop. No, this is the future of the high-touch internet joke. It is, dare I say, explosive.

Ever Wondered About The Health Benefits of Having A Beard? Here's Why

Be it to impress ladies or make fashion statement, a lot of people these days are growing beard. Though a beard draws attention but it also has a lot of health benefits.

1. Prevents illness
Believe it or not, beard can help keep illness caused by sudden climatic changes away. Beards serves as insulation from outside temperature thus preserving the warmth of your face and neck.

2. Reduces allergies and infections
Beard and moustache acts as a filter against allergens from entering our nose and mouth thereby reducing chances of allergies and infections.

3. Beards protect our facial skin from harmful ultraviolet rays
Study shows that when facial skin is constantly exposed to UV rays one can develop skin rashes or even skin cancer. A Beard covers most part of our lower face and neck and thereby preventing direct exposure of our facial to harmful ultraviolet rays.

4. Beards make the skin look smooth and younger
Frequent us of razor leads to roughness of the sensitive facial skin. When you grow beard you tend to use razor less frequently and that too only to keep the beard in proper shape.  Thus you have a skin free from razor cuts and other skin problems. 

 5. Natural moisturizer
Skin gets dry when exposed to cold air. A beard helps keep your skin away from cold air and preserving the skin moisture.

7 things People don't tell you about Riding...!!!

  • Weather: - You always have to check if it’s the right time to ride the bike. You have to have to good weather app that can tell you the probable conditions outside. 

    That’s why when you hear it’s going to rain in north you start riding south with your pals.

  • Cost: - It’s the first thing that people don’t tell you about riding. Be it tyres, Fuel, New gears or a breakdown, Riding is decently expensive.

    Be prepared to spend thousands on your bike. We all know…IT SUCKS!!! But it’s the price of happiness, Sweet high revving madness.

  • Distorted sense of speed: - Something many people don’t realize. Sense of speed co relate to how lower to the ground you are. That’s why a Go-Kart feels like a missile on road and a plane feels like it’s barely moving.

    Reference point do matter as on a Sport bike as you are as high a SUV, so you never realize that you are doing as high as 70-80 KPH, While 40-50 seems so slow.

  • The biker sign: - when you ride a motorcycle on a trip and you come across other riders, you instantly feel like being included in a family.
    It happens a lot when other riders give you signs that alerts you about the hazards or other conditions ahead or simply greet you for riding and you be like feeling so happy with that gesture

  • Being Comfortable with your mortality: - “Nearly Dying” is a pretty common occurrence among riders.

    Every time you come across other riders, they all have at least one story which involve nearly dying experience while riding. But they all are very comfortable with that sense of mortality and Non riders are amazed by this sense of riders.

    After all this makes us feel alive and that’s why we are addictive to riding a motorcycle.
    Check out video below and enjoy the spirit of being a rider:-

  • Never satisfied with one motorcycle: - No matter what, how good or how comfortable your mean machine is, it is scientifically proven that you will never be satisfied with one motorcycle. You will always want that can do other things. Be it Sport bike or an ADV or a dirt bike or a track bike,that will be sweet.

  • Visor swapping: - This is most irritating thing you come across riding. You have to choose either your clear or tinted visor according to the time you ride. You are blinded during the day with the clear visor you brought or you are blinded in night wearing the tinted one you got. You simply have no idea what to do..??

    Wait What..!! You could put on sunglasses under the visor.
    Oh! I didn’t think so.
