This Is How Disney Knows You Won’t Get Dismembered On A Roller Coaster
We have a thing called the “Envelope of Protection.” Basically, all attractions made since 1965 are designed in such a way that the human body cannot reach out and touch anything — here’s a vehicle they use to test this (that’s from Walt Disney World in Florida, but California uses the same concepts). This means that when a rollercoaster is going 45 MPH, you can have your hands out and you won’t get hit (it’s not a good idea to test that, however — we do tell you to keep your hands and arms inside the vehicle at all times).

Meet Kazım Gürbüz, A 95-Year-Old Yogi From Turkey Who Looks Half His Age
This is 95-year-old yoga master Kazım Gürbüz, who looks closer to 50 than 100. Gürbüz still enjoys an active sex life and believes everyone can live to be 130.
In an interview with the Daily Hurriyet, Turkish Gürbüz says the secrets to his youthful looks are keeping his body flexible and eating superfoods including olives and chestnut honey. He also recommends pinto beans, peppers, pepper sauce, herbal tea, and soup. “Less beneficial is meat, [which causes] most damage. There is protein in all [pulses], you do not necessarily need to eat meat,” Gürbüz says.
