Matt Damon Vs. Chinese Monsters Movie The Great Wall Gets an Appropriately Epic New Trailer


The new international trailer for Zhang Yimou’s The Great Wall runs nine minutes and has no subtitles, so unless you’re multilingual you will mostly only be able to understand Matt Damon’s dialogue. However, you only need eyeballs to appreciate all the insanely lavish costumes, weapons, and battle scenes.

Glad you came to check out this article. We’re going to discuss a subject that your girlfriend has no clue about – orgasms. Tracey Cox is an international sex, body language, relationships expert, and award-winning author. Based on her name, she was born for this profession. The sexpert revealed the 15 surprising facts that you probably never knew about orgasms.

  • For every three orgasms dudes have, women only have one orgasm – Ladies and their silly emotions
  • 20% of women can achieve an orgasm simply by kissing – Ladies and their silly emotions
  • Men can orgasm without ejaculating and ejaculate without feeling an orgasm – Way to come empty-handed
  • .3% of women orgasm during childbirth – oh baby!
  • If the distance between the clitoris and vaginal opening is less than the width of a thumb, the clit is more likely to get stimulated from vigorous thrusting – The Iron Chef of Pounding Vag
  • Orgasms give you a high and in brain scans busting a nut lights up the brain in the same way as when heroin users shoot up – And no track marks!
  • Women can get pregnant even if the man doesn’t orgasm or blast a load because 41% of guys produce pre-ejaculate that contains sperm – Wrap it up buttercup
  • Regular orgasms are a natural anti-depressant, help boost immunity and ward off colds and infections – Can your Zoloft do that?
  • A woman’s pain threshold can increase up to 107% during climax and can alleviate pain for up to 10 minutes afterward – Even if she steps on a LEGO
  • Orgasms get better the older you get and are achievable well past the age of 90 – No wonder nana has plastic on her sofa
  • The world record for the most orgasms in an hour is 134 for a woman and 16 for men – Orgasms, actually it’s moregasms
  • The longest orgasm on record was recorded in 1966 when a woman had a 45-second orgasm that involved 25 individual contractions – Most of you don’t have sex for that long
  • Some women can orgasm from sneezing and 10% of women orgasm through exercise – I should go to the gym more
  • It’s not possible for men to urinate and make jizzies at the same time, but women can – Females are amazing multitaskers
  • Orgasms help you sleep because levels of the hormone oxytocin rise by about 500% after you splooge – Forget the Nyquil, FAP you way to restful slumber

A giant experiment that cracked a 100-year mystery of physics just came back online — and it’s more powerful than ever


ligo nsf
LIGO instrument in Hanford, Washington.


In February 2016, physicists declared the century-long search for
gravitational waves
was over

Einstein predicted the existence of such ripples in the fabric of
spacetime in 1915, but he doubted their weak signatures could be

But more than 1,000 researchers used the Laser Interferometer
Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) — two giant, L-shaped
detectors — to record such waves in September 2015 emanating from
the cataclysmic merger of two black holes. They also found
another signature in
December 2015

However, LIGO was shut down in January 2016 and has been offline
ever since — until Wednesday morning at 11 a.m. ET, according to

a Caltech University press release

“LIGO’s scientific and operational staff have been working hard
for the past year and are enthusiastic to restart round-the-clock
observations,” Joe
, an astrophysicist at Louisiana State University and
LIGO member, said in the release.

The reason for the shutdown? Technicians were upgrading LIGO over
10 months to make it even more sensitive to gravitational waves,
pushing open the doors to
a bizarre and powerful new form of astronomy

“We may not immediately publish [a study], but there’s a good
chance we’re going to see more black hole collisions this year,”
Imre Bartos, a
physicist at Columbia University and LIGO, told Business Insider
in September while the upgrade was underway.

Here’s how LIGO works, according to an
created by researchers behind the experiment, and
how recent improvements made it even more sensitive.

How LIGO detects gravitational waves

LIGO is currently a combination of two different yet nearly
identical instruments that work together. (More could be added
later to its network.)

The two L-shaped detectors — each with 2.5-mile-long arms — are
separated by more than 2,200 miles. One is at the Hanford Site in
Washington (where Cold War-era nuclear weapons production went
down) and the other is in Livingston, Virginia.

Together, the detectors hunted for gravitational waves from 2002
to 2010 without any luck, until a new-and-improved “advanced” and
upgraded LIGO came online in 2015.

Each LIGO detector shoots out a laser beam and splits it in two.
One beam is sent down a 2.5-mile long tube, the other down an
identical yet perpendicular tube.

The beams bounce off mirrors and converge back near the beam
splitter. The light waves return at equal length, and line up in
such a way that they cancel each other out.

As a result, the light detector part of the instrument doesn’t
see any light.

But when a gravitational wave comes through, it warps spacetime —
making one tube longer and the other shorter. This rhythmic
stretching-and-squeezing distortion continues until the wave

When this kind of interference happens, the two waves aren’t
equal lengths when they return, so they don’t line up and
neutralize each other. That means the detector would record some
flashes of light.

A physicist measuring those changes in brightness would thus be
measuring and observing gravitational waves.

This setup is extraordinarily sensitive. It can be disturbed by
the vibration of trucks driving on nearby roads, or even a slight

Which is why there are two LIGO instruments: If they detect a
signal occurring at exactly the same time, it’s incredibly likely
that a huge gravitational wave is passing by and through Earth.

The events that cause these ripples in space must be unimaginably
powerful; the two confirmed events detected by LIGO so far are
both thought to be merging black holes.

Such collisions instantly convert several suns’ worth of mass
into pure gravitational-wave energy, which is why we can detect
them on Earth from more than a billion miles away.

Pushing for more sensitivity

Still, such events are relatively rare and their signatures are
extraordinarily weak. When a wave passes by, the arm’s length
changes by less than 1/10,000th of the width of a subatomic
proton particle, according to

To upgrade LIGO’s sensitivity, researchers looked at their years
of operation and made “improvements to lasers, electronics, and
optics,” according to the release.

The 10-month upgrade increased the frequency range at which the
Livingston-based LIGO detector can
“hear” gravitational wave signatures
, plus it reduced some of
the laser-light scattering (which can interfere with
measurements). It’s said to be 25% more sensitive now.

Meanwhile, workers gave a boost to the power of the Hanford LIGO
detector’s laser-interferometer. They also upgraded its
vibration-reducing equipment

Together, the more-sensitive detectors should be capable of more
frequently detecting black hole-merger events, plus those farther
away than the current limit of 1.4 billions light-years.

, an astrophysicist at Northwestern University and
LIGO, previously told Business Insider that the experiment could
detect 10 or more new gravitational waves after the upgrades —
and possibly up to 100 a year later on, with the help of another
experiment called
Advanced Virgo

“This has opened a new window to what we can detect in the
universe,” Bartos said in September. “We can detect this, we can
now see gravitational waves. But the real exciting things are
what we discover with these gravitational waves.”
