Amelia Earhart probably wasn’t captured by the Japanese after all
via The Week
A documentary pointing to evidence that Amelia Earhart was captured by the Japanese and died in their captivity has apparently been disproved by a Japanese blogger, The Guardian reports. The documentary, which aired on the History Channel this weekend, relied on a photograph of two unidentified white people who experts said could have been Earhart and her navigator, Fred Noonan. Only, blogger Kota Yamano quickly found the same photograph had been published in a Japanese book two years before Earhart disappeared.
“I have never believed the theory that Earhart was captured by the Japanese military, so I decided to find out for myself,” Yamano told The Guardian. “I was sure that the same photo must be on record in Japan.” Yamaha added it took him just 30 minutes to disprove the theory after he searched “Jaluit atoll” between 1930 and 1940.
“The photo was the 10th item that came up,” Yamano said. “I was really happy when I saw it. I find it strange that the documentary makers didn’t confirm the date of the photograph or the publication in which it originally appeared. That’s the first thing they should have done.”
Once again, Earhart’s disappearance is subsumed in mystery. Read more about why we’re mesmerized by her vanishing here at The Week.
There’s a New Toothbrush That Cleans Your Teeth in 10 Seconds
This is like the ultimate toothbrush for anyone who’s LAZY. Not only does it brush your teeth for you . . . not only does it brush them in record time . . . but you don’t even need to move your arm.
There’s a product called Amabrush on Kickstarter right now, and it’s a new kind of toothbrush that cleans your teeth perfectly in 10 seconds flat.
It looks more like a mouthguard than a toothbrush that you’re used to. You put it in your mouth, press a button, and it simultaneously scrubs all of your teeth with just the right amount of toothpaste.
If you want one, you can pre-order it on Kickstarter by pledging $90, plus you’ll have to pay $23 in international shipping because they’re coming from Europe . . . and they’re not scheduled to ship until December.
But isn’t it worth it not to have to brush your own teeth anymore?
Science Just Proved That Drinking Coffee Makes You Live Longer
I’m not sure anyone needs ANOTHER reason to drink coffee . . . our current reason of “it’s the only thing making me a functional member of society and without it I’d murder you all” seems strong enough. But here you go anyway.
According to two new studies that were just published in the “Annals of Internal Medicine” journal, people who drink coffee LIVE LONGER.
A study out of the University of Southern California looked at 185,000 Americans over 16 years, and found that people who regularly drank coffee had lower death rates . . . especially people who drank at least four cups a day.
And the other study, out of Europe, looked at 520,000 people in 16 countries over 16 years, and found the exact same thing.
The researchers believe it’s all thanks to the antioxidants in coffee, not even the caffeine . . . because even decaf drinkers lived longer than other people.
So can we say for SURE that coffee is good for you? A professor at Johns Hopkins University says he’s not willing to go THAT far yet, but, quote, “the basic idea is that we are increasingly reassured that coffee is not harmful.”
