I have been having some bizarre dream experiences lately. It's like some sort of second-level lucidity in dreaming.
I had this one recurring dream before. Its like I'm waking up from sleep and then start moving around the house and doing stuff until I start to realise that I'm actually dreaming. I become lucid upon realising that the things can't happen in reality ie. flying 3-legged cats, people eating my intestines etc.

Infrasound, as one might have guessed, is the term for sound that is below the human audible frequency range. There are various natural phenomena that can produce infrasound, e.g. earthquakes, aurora, etc. And it is not surprising that many animals are capable of detecting infrasound. But what I find particularly interesting is the effect infrasound has on humans.

An analysis of the language of the Koran claims that the supposed 72 virgins that await Muslim martyrs in paradise are really a mistranslation. Instead of perpetual virgins (some sources say they "revert" to virgin status every time one sleeps with them, don't ask me how), the actual reward for martyrdom is - lo, and behold - raisins! What a bummer!
