Had a blast yesterday at the Scottish Games in Pleasanton. Man it was hot, but a load of fun! My phone died before I could get pictures of the sporting events.

Hey! So before I begin I got this information from Vsauce my favorite science youtuber! He’s great, you’ll learn a lot from him, I know I did.

So anyway, there are 3 types of fears as examined by Stephen Kind

1) Gross-out: so gore, disease, nasty things

2) Horror: unnautural things, like a giant spider

3) Terror: when somethings creepy

What makes something creepy is ambiguity

For example masks. It masks facial expression, you don’t know how that other person is feeling. Are they a threat? Or are they nice? You just don’t know. 

Francis T Mcandrew and Sara S. Koehnke described being creeped out as an ambiguity of threats from others. (click on the pictures to enlarge)

Creepy things maybe a threat, but they are also kind of not. Like a teddy bear with a full set of human teeth. So our brains just don’t know what to do. 

So instead of carrying out a typical fear response, we just feel uneasy.

Magical Paths Begging To Be Walked

Roads and paths pervade our literature, poetry, artwork, linguistic expressions and music. Even photographers can’t keep their eyes (and lenses) off of a beautiful road or path, which is why we collected this list of 28 amazing photos of paths.

Paths like these have a powerful grip on the human imagination – they can bring adventure, promise and change or solitude, peace and calm. There’s nothing like a walk down a beautiful path to clear your head – or to fill it with ideas!

I’ll leave you with an excellent quote from J. R. R. Tolkien’s works while you enjoy these images; “It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.
