Geologists working somewhere in remote Siberia had drilled a hole some 14.4 kilometers deep when the drill-bit suddenly began to rotate wildly. The project manager was quoted as saying they decided that the center of the earth was hollow. Supposedly, the geologists measured temperatures of over 2000 degrees in the deep hole. They lowered super sensitive microphones to the bottom of the well, and to their horror they heard the sounds of thousands, perhaps millions, of suffering souls screaming.
Summit fever is a mountaineering term which describes the dangerous state of mind experienced by some climbers while attempting to reach a mountain summit. It is a physiological phenomenon where a person disregards dangerous weather, route conditions, physical exertion or simply refuses to take them into consideration in their desperation to reach the top.
An old Trinny & Susannah doco demonstrated how 2 women out of 60 had the 'perfect' body proportions for their size. In other words, only 3% of the women observed had perfect body proportions. That means 97% of women have imperfect bodies..
The dictionary defines the word 'imperfect' as: characterized by faults, mistakes, etc.; defective. Not good news for you ladies reading this who are in the 97%.
And what about us guys? As a former bodybuilder astutely remarked about the perfect body:
"The guys you see on TV and in magazines that have that look - that look is what they do for a living. The maintenance of that look is what their entire lives are based on - it's a lifestyle. It's 24 hours a day, 7 days a week."
Good grief. Have any of us have ever wondered who decided what was the perfect body shape (and what wasn't) in the first place?
