These days…

These days 8 2nd MarchHave you ever been told that carrots make the eyes prettier and/or make you see better? I remember my grandmother telling me that when I was a child and now I found out about the truth about this urban myth!

It made me think about how urban legends spread, and I found this article super interesting. They found out that “combined survival information with social information (…) were more successfully remembered than those that only involved survival information.”

Interesting, isn’t it??
