Some of the results are surprising — like in Florida they hate licorice, but isn’t most of their population supposed to be old people??? Please advise, Florida.

Disappearance of Brianna Maitland

Disappearance of Brianna Maitland

In March 2004, 17-year-old Vermont waitress Brianna Maitland finished work for the day and drove home. That was the last time anyone saw her. Brianna’s car was discovered the next day backed onto an abandoned house, with the boot of the car inside the property. Police removed the car, but didn’t try to trace the driver. By the time they did, the leads had gone cold. To this day, no one knows who took her, or why.

The Hands Resist Him

The Hands Resist Him

This creepy AF painting shows a young boy standing beside a weird doll, with hands pressed against the glass behind him. It was painted by an artist called Bill Stoneham in 1972, and is allegedly haunted. It was put up for sale on eBay with a note that said the owner was afraid of it because the doll seemed to move, and the listing was accompanied by photographs that showed the doll in various threatening poses.

Idilia Dubb

Idilia Dubb was a Scottish teenager who became trapped in Lahneck Castle while on holiday in Germany in the 1800s, after an old staircase she had climbed collapsed behind her. She wasn’t found at the time, but eventually her diary and bones were discovered. The diary documents her starvation and failed attempts to signal for help.

Mellified man

Mellified man

“Mellified man” was a form of ancient Chinese medicine made by submerging a whole dead body in honey. The process started while the victims were still alive: they ate nothing but honey in the run-up to their death, and would bathe in it. Once the corpse was fully dissolved in the honey, the “confection” would then be used to cure various ailments. Er, I’ll just stick to regular cough syrup, thanks.

Here’s Why Your Ears Are Always Itchy As Fuck

*Has Q-tips shoved in both ears.*

Is using Q-tips orgasmic for you? Like are you literally always poking around in your ears trying to get rid of the incessant itching that plagues you?

Um, ME TOO.

Well, I’m here to tell you exactly what’s making your ears so itchy and how to properly treat it, without making it worse.

Well, I'm here to tell you exactly what's making your ears so itchy and how to properly treat it, without making it worse.

Experiencing itchy ears is incredibly common, and it’s not particular to just one species — in case you haven’t noticed, dogs and cats are literally always scratching their ears, too. So I spoke with Dr. Erich Voigt, clinical associate professor in the Department of Otolaryngology at NYU Langone Health, and Dr. Ana Kim, director of otologic research at Columbia University Medical Center, to get to the bottom of what the hell causes insatiably itchy ears and to write this post for the common good.

Hopefully there’s something in here that helps you, because from experience, I know how torturous itchy ears can be.

First things first: There’s a protective layer of wax in your ear canals that is water-repellant and helps keep your ears clean.

First things first: There's a protective layer of wax in your ear canals that is water-repellant and helps keep your ears clean.

There’s a natural waxy substance produced by the glands in our ears called cerumen. It mixes with the oil and moisture in our ear canals to create a protective layer that lines the skin of the ear canal, and actually acts like a barrier against dirt and bacteria, while also keeping the skin from drying out, Voigt says.

The water-repellant and slightly acidic wax also helps to decrease bacterial growth and prevent water from getting trapped in your ear canals. It’s different from the ear wax that everyone wants to remove, he explains.

And regardless of how gentle you are, when you push things inside of your ears, you’re most likely scraping at or getting rid of that waxy layer.

And regardless of how gentle you are, when you push things inside of your ears, you're most likely scraping at or getting rid of that waxy layer.

“In my experience, the most common cause of itchy ears is Iatrogenic mechanical manipulation, which is when people insert weird things into their ears (i.e., Q-tips, bobby pins, fingers, etc.) and scrape around causing trauma,” says Kim. “Your outer ear canals have natural defenses that help keep them clean and prevent infection, and if you interfere with them, you’re going to run into problems.”

“If people are using Q-tips on a regular basis, they’re removing the wax lining from their ear canals, taking away that protective layer,” Voigt says. “It’s most likely to happen if you’re cleaning your ears often and very vigorously. But even if you use them gently, it’s a delicate layer and could still be removed.”

Chloë Grace Moretz has been a regular on the big screen since she started acting at just 7 years old. You probably recognise her from her roles in movies like Kick-Ass, (500) Days of Summer, and If I Stay.

She already has four new movies in the works, which will come out later this year, so it’s no surprise that Variety featured her in their 2017 Power of Young Hollywood issue.

It was one of the only actors that ever made me cry on set … I had to pick it up and go back on set and pretend he was a love interest, and it was really hard. It just makes you realise that there are some really bad people out there and for some reason, he felt the need to say that to me. You have to kind of forgive and not forget really, but it was just like wow. It was jarring.
