The Yawns

Do you ever wonder why when someone yawns it often makes you yawn as well?

If you yawn and the person next to you follows suit, not to worry…you’re not boring them, it may be a good sign, it may even mean they really like you!

Much of yawning is due to suggestibility.

Chances are you’ll yawn at least once while reading this.

Science suggests that contagious yawns are a sign of deep empathy.
They are caused by an irrepressible need to share and understand the emotions and feelings of others.

You don’t need to actually see a person yawn to involuntarily yawn yourself; hearing someone yawn or even reading about yawning can cause the same reaction – it’s infectious.

Science suggests that contagious yawns are a sign of deep empathy.
They are caused by an irreprssible need to share and understand the emotions and feelings of others.

The “emotional bridge” created by the shared experience enhances social bonding, according to scientists.  In an experiment, they found that a yawn was far more likely to spread among groups of friends than a group of strangers.

So there you have it….
yawning could mean
“I’m liking you” or “hey I’d really like to get to know you”

Have you ever wonder what the WD in WD-40 stands for?

The name was lifted right out chemist Norm Larsen‘s laboratory notebook.

Way back in 1953, he was trying to concoct an anti-corrosion formula, which worked on the basic principle of displacing water.

On his 40th try, Larsen finally got it right.  Hence the name WD-40.

It literally means Water Displacer, 40th try.
