Gothic Symbols ………



 

 

Well the reason why I decided to do some research and write this post is because I saw a movie with this concept in it. In my younger years we all heard about Gothic, demons, Ouija and many other things in this category. I did have a friend that was into all of this stuff and I really never thought about learning anything, I guess I was a baby. My husband and best friend and I had a seance and let me tell you that was enough for me forever. But I find it interesting now to research it. So I will share with you everything I found that is interesting.

Occult symbols are fast replacing Christian symbols in our culture. Therefore, we encourage you to use this list to warn others, especially Christian children who intentionally wear and display them because they are popular.

Keep in mind that many of these symbols have double or multiple meanings. For example, the pentagram has been used to transmit occult power in all kinds of rituals for centuries, but to Christians the same shape may simply represent a star — a special part of God’s creation. The image of a fish may mean a sign of the zodiac (astrology) to some, but to Christians it has meant following Jesus and sharing the message of His love. We will continue to delight in the cross, while recognizing that others use the same image to represent their dark forces.

In this section I will post some pictures and the meanings for them.  Of course I will not post everything I found but some of the best things tough or I would be here writing for days.

Symbolic meanings in neo-Gothic culture often deal with something dark, and sometimes evil and satanic portents. These symbols may have been adapted from various cultures, such as the Germanic, Pagan, Christian, and Celtic symbols.  /articles/gothic-symbols.html

Well these are the best and the ones that are out there.  I had found that thee are the most interesting ones.  I do not practice or use anything to do with this just for interest.  I know now a days there are a lot of people that use these in satanic ways.  I really am not sure why they would like to worship the devil.  There are quite a few teenagers that are out there and I think it is so sad.  I know there are cults in which I hope to never run in to any of them, but there is always a chance.

I do hope you found this interesting and once again this is research I do not use any of this.  I am Catholic and I worship God.

If there is anything you would lie to add then please do in the comment section.

What do you think about Gothic Symbols?

Are Vampires Real ?

 

Well it is time again for one of my out of the box topics.  Yes, by now you all know I like different, interesting and unusual topics.  So keep reading and see what I dug up about if Vampires are real or not.  Do you think Vampires are real or not?  I would love to now your answers, so feel free to leave it in the comments.  Well enough about that that and here we go.

There is alot more proof out there than we really knew about  Vampires existing.  There are old sacred writings about vampires and even books written by doctors of the 1800’s about the physical differences of a vampire body and how it works.  There also have found books from the 1990’s that were written about Vampires being real.  Did you know that?  Well to b honest I didn’t know that until I started researching this topic days ago (11 days ago).  I actually got to dig up quite a bit that was buried deep.

Many Vampire Stories:

As you know there are so many different Vampire stories that are out there.  Some of them say Vampires are real and out there in the world and many others say there is no such thing as Vampires.   I am personally swayed to believe they did, and do, exist. I really find them fascinating, well the ones that only drink animal blood  because they remember what being human was like.  Then there are the Vampires that only kill bad people for their food.  The previous sentences do not necessarily describe real vampires, but more of the Hollywood version of a vampire.

I have to say this whole idea seems satanic, with drinking the blood and all.  Then that also got me wondering if Vampires are in the Bible?  I personally don’t consider myself overly religious, but since the world’s time is based on Jesus Christ’s life, I do place importance on a lot of what it says. Especially in regards to the history of the world and the “people” who started the human race.  I couldn’t find no scriptures that say Vampires  existed, but I did find quite a few scriptures that suggest that they did exist.

Vampire Origin:

As I was searching and looking for myths about the first vampire, a lot of them referred back to a great book, the Bible.  It has addressed a fact that I really wondered about.  It is when Cain killed Able and was told to leave, he married and unknown woman.  The only thing though is the Bible states that that family was the first and ONLY people on Earth. So who was she and where did she come from?

So Vampires Existed – But Do They Now?

So they did exist!  Is there any evidence that vampires still roam the Earth? I’m talking about physical attacks, dissected vampires in the morgue, human witnesses, or vampires that came forward to the world.  I found lots of books that say Vampires existed and they still are out there.  These books are from the  late 1800s and early 1900s.

My Idea On Vampires:

I do actually think there was Vampires and we might have been placed here for their food consumption.  Then we grew in numbers and God seen we were actually the stronger race, so he had the Bible written to help us stay stronger.  We all have the same teeth in our mouth which we have larger canine teeth.  Maybe we are all Vampires but we stopped ingesting blood.  Perhaps vampires actually exist in another dimension that occasionally crosses over with ours  I could go on and on about this subject, but I don’t want to have it to long and drawn out.

Do you think we are all Vampires in a way?.

Why We All Love Halloween…….

 

I wanted to create this post about Halloween because I love Halloween.  I am hoping that all my readers love Halloween as much as I do.  In this post I am going to tell you about some of the history of Halloween.  I will share what I love the best about Halloween, my favorite candy, the costumes I used to wear as a child and now as a adult, the best all time Halloween movie that my family watches every year and much more.  So just keep reading…….

A Little History Of Halloween:

Halloween is the time for  celebration and superstition.  It is thought to have originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off roaming ghosts. In the eighth century, Pope Gregory III designated November 1 as a time to honor all saints and martyrs; the holiday, All Saints’ Day, incorporated some of the traditions of Samhain.  The evening before was known as All Hallows’ Eve and later Halloween. Over time, Halloween evolved into a secular, community-based event characterized by child-friendly activities such as trick-or-treating. In a number of countries around the world, as the days grow shorter and the nights get colder, people continue to usher in the winter season with gatherings, costumes and sweet treats.  By 43 A.D., the Roman Empire had conquered the majority of Celtic territory. In the course of the four hundred years that they ruled the Celtic lands, two festivals of Roman origin were combined with the traditional Celtic celebration of Samhain.  On May 13, 609 A.D., Pope Boniface IV dedicated the Pantheon in Rome in honor of all Christian martyrs, and the Catholic feast of All Martyrs Day was established in the Western church. Pope Gregory III (731–741) later expanded the festival to include all saints as well as all martyrs, and moved the observance from May 13 to November 1. By the 9th century the influence of Christianity had spread into Celtic lands, where it gradually blended with and supplanted the older Celtic rites.  There is some history about Halloween.  I really liked researching and sharing this with you all.  I really found this part really interesting because I always loved Halloween but never knew really nothing important about it.  Now we all learned something new together.

My Favorite Candy:

Come on I know you like to get some candy on Halloween!  It doesn’t matter if you go to a Halloween party, trick or treating or stealing a few pieces from your children.  I personally have six children and it was such a great trick and treating in our family.  They all used to have so much candy.  Let me tell you I really miss it now because they are all grown.  I don’t miss it because of the candy, it was our family time together walking from house to house and then driving to relatives houses.  Let me see my favorite candy they had gotten and gave to me are: mini kit kats, the smartee rolls of candy and mini tootsie rolls.  What is your favorite type of Halloween candy?

Costumes:

Well let’s see as a child my favorite three costumes was this awesome witch my parents had gotten for me, Little Red Riding Hood and Wonder Women.  Those are my top three costumes I wore when I was a child.  Now let’s see I only have dressed up twice as a adult.  The first one was a witch again, but more structure to the costume and face and the second one was nurse. I have been invited to a Halloween party this year and I already have my costume.  It is a French Maid costume.  I actually received the French Maid costume for a review from www.CostumeSuperCenter.com and it will be on my review website real soon.  So make sure you check it out by this weekend on www.thpickyreviewgal.weebly.com  What is your favorite costume when you were a child?  Do you dress up for Halloween now as a adult?

Halloween Movies:

Well I am going to share with you the family horror movie, my favorite one and the ones my husband and I still watch now together.   The family horror movie used to be Nightmare On Elm Street every Halloween after trick n treating.  I used to sit with the children eating candy and wrapped in a blanket watching this movie every year.  The reason we picked this movie is because we used to live on Elm street and it was just so much fun with my children.  My favorite personal horror movie are the Leprechaun movies.  These are just so awesome, well my opinion.  If you never heard of them or saw any of them, you really should this Halloween.  Now my husband and I we tend to try to watch a few new horror movies on Halloween.  If there is not any we tend to watch the Grudge, Friday the 13th or really anything as long as it is horror.  What kind of Horror movies do you watch?  Do you have a favorite tradition for Halloween night?

Well I guess I wrote about everything I wanted to and I will include a few great links for a couple movies.  Then maybe you can check them out if you never saw them and make them a part of your Halloween tradition.  I will be posting many other Halloween posts over the next few weeks.  Make sure you are on the lookout.  I will be post on a few different blogs that I have.  There will be Halloween reviews and some fun posts.  Here is the links to my other two blogs that will have some fun posts:  www.thepickyreviewgal.weebly.com  and  https://debpowerblog.blogspot.com/

My Predictions For Life In A 100 Years…..

As you already know I love writing about out-of-box topics, not just ordinary things.  I really loved this post when I came up with it.  I hope I will be able to get all my readers minds to start turning and thinking.  I will share my predictions for life in 100 years from now.  I know I won’t be around to see if any come a little true or not, but I am hoping maybe this blog post will be.  Now remember these are only my odd predictions that I think would be cool if they really did happen.  i had to think of some different predictions and I think I got some really good ones, but really out-of-the-box ones.  So let me know what you all think?

  • With all the DNA experiments and the robotic engineering they will be able to create intelligent humans who are immortal.
  • We will be able to control what the weather will be like.
  • Maybe there could be a way that we will be wired to computers to make our brains faster.
  • They will be able to make one single currency that would be for the whole world.
  • Now for pregnancy: All the women that would love to have babies they will be inseminated rather than by men.  This would help single women that would love children and cut down on all the diseases (well some of them).  They can just be able to be pregnant without the men being involved.
  • Every single desert will become tropical forests.  I think this would be really awesome. It would help the environment and we all love tropical forests instead of just dry, deserted deserts.
  • In the whole world there will be just one world government.  The one government is in charge of everything that would and could happen in the world.

Well these are my predictions with my outrageous thinking.  So I can’t say for certain that any of these are going to happen, but it would be something if they did.  These are just predictions that I would love to have now but I just updated them for in a 100 years.  We all know that the future is going to be really something.  Well I am hoping at least and would be really neat for everyone that will be here in a 100 years,

What would be your predictions for 100 years from now?

Why is the word hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia so long if it stands for fear of long words?

I had always heard this growing up and often wondered why it was so long for the meaning of it.  Did you know that this word actually has 36 letters in it.So I thought this would be a great, fun post.  Well read on and see the reason why.

I am sure there are all different kinds of explanations and reasons why this word would be so long.  Then after several hours of research I found only one  reasons for this questions.  You really will be shocked and maybe even chuckle a little bit.

Well the first reason I came up with is  that they want you to get over the fear of long words.  I guess if they made the phobia name long, the people with this phobia would eventually get over if they had to say the phobia name all the time. I guess they are hoping to cure everyone with this phobia.  In which I actually could see cause I wouldn’t want to say that word all the time, nerveless even once.  I am not sure that was their intentions or not but this is the only real explanation for this question.

A person with the fear of long words shuns away from using and learning long words.  There are actually symptoms that these people actually get from the fear of long words.  Some of these symptoms include:

  • Sweating
  • Shortness of breath
  • Dry mouth
  • clammy hands
  • Dizziness
  • headaches
  • Hot flashes
  • Palpations
  • Panic attacks
  • Extreme fear

These are just some of the symptoms that a person can experience from this phobia.  It really is a condition that people experience.There are some people that are only afraid of extremely long, multisyllabic words or those that are quite obscure. Others fear even moderate-length common words.  The effects of this fear on daily life also vary significantly between sufferers. A college professor with a fear of Latin-based words or a gardener who is afraid of lengthy plant names might have serious difficulties at work. Someone whose job and hobbies are less driven by long words may feel no serious effects at all.

Well that’s about that on this post on why and how people are affected by this.  Like I said I heard this a couple of times in the past, but never really gave it much thought until now and I am glad that I did.  I find this quite interesting and I hope you did too.

Do you experience  hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia ?

Fun Ways To Say ” I Love You!”

There are all the regular ways to say “I Love You.”  As we all know those three little words are not easy to say.  These words could have different meanings just by how they are being used.  Instead of saying them in the normal way all the time you could try something different.  I love being different and fun so I am always thinking on fun and outrageous ways to do things.  So maybe you will use my fun ways to say “I Love You” to your partner.  Really what could you lose?  They will love it if you change things up.  I know I would!  Well here we go.

Movie Reference:

Declarations of love is often borrowed from movies.  You can paraphrase from movies that you love.  For example from the movie When Harry Met Sally, the speech Billy Crystal did when he was telling her he loved her.  You can switch up the words to fit your love life.  So if I was going to use that for my husband I would say something like this.  “I love that you always take 10 minutes at Dunkins to order the same perfect Mocha Ice coffee.”  If you are into Science Fiction you could use this saying, “I will love you until I am assimilated into the Borg, at which point we will be just friends”.  So you could paraphrase from any movie and it would be fun.

Animal Passion:

The humorous declarations of love can be easily supplemented with some animal references.  For a example, something I would use for my husband.  “A troop of baby kangaroos doesn’t love to bounce as much as I love you.” Something like that or maybe, “Loving you feels as warm and fuzzy as a cave of hibernating bears.”  You can use any kind of animal according on what you want to say.

Now in this section  here are some fun and easy ways to let them know you love them and even show them.

Share five minutes of uninterrupted eye contact.

Pick out a book and read out loud together.

Watch a sunset or sunrise together.

 

Set up a media free day or night.

Plan the perfect date.

Revisit a first date or first meeting place.

Write out a Alphabet Appreciation.

Make a mix tape of songs from your past.

Well I hope this gives you some ideas.  All you really need to do is think way down deep.  With the Alphabet one I made for my husband I got really creative. I made my own little booklet for him.  For some of the letters I used: A-Awesome, B-Brilliant, C-Confident.  Well you get it. I  like being creative in doing different things.  I hope you all give some of these some thought and tell that person in your life you love them in your own special ways.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Slang Words and Meanings…..

I know there is alot of slang words out there that the younger generation is using.  As parents I know I would like to know what they are really saying.  The children think they can talk and the parents won’t understand them.  Well sorry children I am going to break your code.  I hope it helps alot of parents out there to understand their children.

Here we go…..get ready!

Soof
DEFINE IT: Simply, “swear on our friendship” or the new “say word” of the year
SAY IT: Person A: “Holy crap, my phone bill for the month is over $200…”
Person B: “I don’t believe you.”
Person B: “Soof!”

Cray Cray
DEFINE IT: Someone or something that is really crazy
SAY IT: “You’re planning on shovelling that snow after midnight? You’re cray cray.”

Salty
DEFINE IT: Someone or something who is overly pissed off, angry or annoying
SAY IT: “I can’t stand his attitude sometimes, he’s so salty.”

Turn Up
DEFINE IT: Getting loose, getting wild and getting the party started
SAY IT: “What? Beyonce is performing at Brian’s party tonight? Brian’s place is about to turn up!”

Swerve
DEFINE IT: Swerve has several meanings, according to Canadian teenagers. It can mean telling someone to go away, a replacement for the word “swag,” or if you’re using game to win someone over.
SAY IT: Person A: “Seriously, did you get my text last night?”
Person B: “Yeah, I didn’t reply.”
Person A: “Ugh, swerve. You aren’t worth my time.”

Dead
DEFINE IT: When a situation is so incredibly funny, hard to believe or you have no other words to express yourself, you say dead. Usually, preceded by a hashtag if you’re using it on Instagram or Twitter: #dead.
SAY IT:  “He only sold 2,000 records off his new album… that stuff went negative platinum…that stuff went aluminum foil #DEAD.”

Hashtag
DEFINE IT: Yes, this comes directly from using the “#” symbol on Twitter or Facebook. In everyday conversations, you can express your emotions or attitude towards something or someone by saying hashtag followed by the feeling.

SAY IT: “I can’t even believe how long I had to wait in the Tim Hortons’ line this morning. Hashtag not impressed.”

Down
DEFINE IT: To do something with someone or agree to doing it.
SAY IT: Person A: “‘Girls’ marathon tonight?”
Person B: “Down.”

Wheeling And Dealing
DEFINE IT: Yes, this term has been around for years and it can mean a variety of things. These days, wheeling and dealing means you’re in an relationship with someone, but you’re not boyfriend/girlfriend. However, just to make things a little more complicated, you’re still considered in a relationship — just without that specific label. Wheeling usually happens in the flirting stage and dealing is your non-defined relationship.
SAY IT: “I’ve been trying to wheel this girl for weeks now, but I can’t see myself dealing with her.”

Beauty/Beaut
DEFINE IT: Yes, this means beautiful, but it is often used by bros to compliment each other. It can also refer to someone who is cool.
SAY IT: “Your new car? Beauty.”

Duster/Dusty
DEFINE IT: Originally a term used by hockey players to describe a player who didn’t have much ice time and “collected dust on the bench,” it is now used to refer to someone as sub-par or when someone does something dumb.
SAY IT: “Bro, did you just send a private tweet publicly? You’re such a duster.”

Lace Up
DEFINE IT: This phrase comes from rapper and as the word implies, it means lacing up your kicks and doing whatever it is you have to do. It also implies stepping up your game and taking on whatever life throws at you.
SAY IT: “In five days I’ll be sitting on a beach! Yeah! Lace Up!”

Catfish
DEFINE IT: Made popular by the documentary and recently the MTV TV series “Catfish,” this refers to someone who is pretending to be someone they’re not.
SAY IT: “I met this extremely hot guy on a dating site but it turned out to be a catfish.”

Hella
DEFINE IT: Again, not a new term but hella has become quite popular with teens these days. Hella replaces really.
SAY IT: “I can’t even deal with how many ‘likes’ my photo has, this is hella cray cray.”

Soft
DEFINE IT: Someone who is weak (doesn’t have to be physically), tired or is too afraid to do something.
SAY IT: “So he won’t come out tonight because it’s too cold? Soft.”

Rocket
DEFINE IT: When someone is really attractive, often a female.
SAY IT: “Kate Upton is on the cover of Sports Illustrated. What a rocket.”

Selfie
DEFINE IT: Probably one of the most commonly heard words, selfie refers to taking a picture of yourself.
SAY IT: “Just give me a second, I need to post this selfie of this outfit on Instagram.”

Dafaq
DEFINE IT: This one isn’t particularly new either, but teachers and students tell us they’ve been hearing it a lot. Dafaq is short for the fuck.
SAY IT: “Did he just miss that basket? Dafaq.”

Guap
DEFINE IT: A lot of money. Lots of it.
SAY IT: “Did you hear tuition’s going up? That’s a lot of guap!”

Molly
DEFINE IT: The pure form of MDMA (ecstasy).
SAY IT: “Did you see those out-of-control guys at the festival? I think they were on molly.”

Well these are pretty much the ones that are being used by children now-a-days.  I personally have heard a few of these from the neighborhood children.  I know when my children were younger and that was years ago the slang was different.  So I am guessing that every 2 or 3 years these will change just as the teenagers do.

So now if you have teenagers in your home you will know what they are talking about.

Why Men Lie To Women?

I know this really isn’t out of the box topic like the other ones have been.  I think this is a big discussion and we always ask this question.  Well I know I do and yes my husband did.  As you noticed I said did.  I think after the hundredth time of me catching him and pointing out that I will always find out, he has stopped.  It is very annoying and I can’t stand it.

I want to say the reason men lie is because they are afraid to tell the truth cause they know they did something stupid.  That is my opinion and we all have our opinions.

Let me ask all the ladies out there how many times has a man lied to you?  Now be truth with yourself.  Didn’t you ever want to know why men eventually lie to you?  Now I am going to tell you the number 1 reason why they lie.

Men lie because women don’t listen!

Now I know you are probably screaming and your blood is boiling.  You are probably saying that you listen and most likely you do.  You listen to your friends and children very well.  If you work then you listen to your boss.  If you are in a relationship, do you really listen to your partner?  Now don’t make up any excuses or fib yourself.  But, seriously do you listen to every word that comes out of his mouth?  To be completely honest I don’t.  My husband talks about things I don’t either know to much about or sports and I can honestly say I sit there and daze.  This still doesn’t give my husband or yours the reason to lie.

Are women really that complicated?

There are 99% of men out there that say women are to complicated.  The reason behind this is that we have such a wide variety of emotions.  That we express our daily routine with wide amount of emotions.  Sometimes yes this is true depending on what has happened during that day.  We like to have longer conversations and recap our day to them.  I know I do, but I don’t talk for hours and hours.  Now men they talk in very short sentences and no emotions.

There is 90% of men out there that said they want us to listen to them.  To listen really careful.  They saw what they mean.  So listen. You’re not going to change us. Only we can change us.

Now here is the real deal:

If we both admire the way the opposite sex thinks, if we both admire the way the opposite sex acts, and if we really listen to one another, our relationships will be far better.

I guess all guys want that cool woman who understands them and doesn’t try to change them or womanize them.

Now I got to say maybe this does make some sense, but like I said no one is going to lie to me.  I personally find it very disrespectful and no need to.  Plus I always find out!! 🙂

What do you think women?

Crazy, Dumb, Weird Laws in the U.S.

There are laws, but then there are crazy laws.  Every person most likely know the laws that we must follow each and everyday.  I know though each state is different in the law and outcome of the penalty, but all pretty much the same.  So I am going to give you a list of some of the craziest laws and the state they are from.  I did know some weird ones were out there and I dug them up.  So get ready to be amazed and maybe even laugh a little.

  • Alabama :  The state code only allows 5 minutes for a person to vote.
  • Arkansas :  Section 18-54.  The sounding of horns at a sandwich shops.  No person shall sound their horn on a vehicle at any place that sells cold drinks and sandwiches are served after 9 p.m.
  • California :  In Los Angeles, it is not legal to bathe two babies at the same time in the same tub.  In Walnut, no person can wear a mask or disguise on the street without a permit from the sheriff.
  • Colorado :  The water laws in Colorado prohibit the use of rain barrels or any method to catch rain water.
  • Illinois :  In Zion, it is illegal for anyone to give cats, dogs or any domesticated animals a lighted cigar.
  • Iowa :  In Ottumwa, it is illegal for any man within the corporate city limits to wink at any female that he is “unacquainted” with.
  • Louisiana :  In Mansfield, anyone caught wearing saggy pants that show off your underwear is either fines $150 in court costs or 15 days in jail.  Later the court overturned this law, it was declared unconstitutional.
  • New Jersey :  In Bergen County, blue law is still in effect.  The only store that can be open on Sunday is the grocery stores.
  • New York :  A licence must be purchased before you can hang clothes on a clothesline.  In Camel, a man can not be seen in public while wearing a jacket and pants that doesn’t match.  In Ocean City, the only beverage you can drink on the beach is water in clear see through, plastic bottles.  In Staten Island, you can only water your lawn if you are holding the hose in your hand.
  • Ohio :  In Oxford, it is unlawful for women to appear in public while she is unshaven.  This includes legs and face.
  • West Virginia :  State code deems it unlawful for any person to have in his possession or to display a red and black flag.
  • Wisconsin :  In Wauwatosa, no person shall spit on any public sidewalks.  Also can not spit on any floors or stairways in any public buildings.

I know some of these laws seem really out there.  I couldn’t believe some of these myself.  I wonder how many of these we would of already broke.  Hmmm makes me think.  How about you?

Now here are a few dumb laws in the state I live in, which is Florida.

  • They banned all computers and smart phones in the internet cafes.
  • Doors to all public buildings must open outwards.
  • On Miami Beach, if anyone is caught selling oranges on the street may be punished with 30 days in jail.
  • In Pensacola, it is illegal to roll a wheelbarrow through the streets.  The fine will be determined on what is in the wheelbarrow.

Well this is the end of my post of crazy, weird and dumb laws that are out there.I hope you enjoyed and maybe even chuckled a bit.

Which laws have you broken here?

3 Strange Addictions……

 

We all know that a addiction is a strong and harmful need to have something regularly or do something.  When we hear of addictions we typically think of drugs, smoking and alcohol.  These are the most common ones that people battle with each and every day.  As these people suffer from cravings it really is a extreme challenge.  So in this post I will share some of the weird addictions that are really out there in the world.

  1. Ice chewing :  I know that you are saying “a addiction of ice chewing.”  I know it is not deadly or dangerous, but it is out there.  Some people out there in the world have to deal with the compulsion to chew on ice every single day.  This is known as pagophagia, it also is a indicator of iron deficiency.  pagophagia is also a form of pica, this is where people are addicted to eating items that have no nutritional value.
  2. Tanning :  There are many people that enjoy nothing more than sitting in the sun and getting a tan, but for many it is a lot more than a pleasurable experience.  Many people suffer from this addiction and will look for ways to feed the addiction.  There are 50% people who love sunbathing that have this addiction.  These people feel a natural high after tanning.  The reason for this is that the ultraviolet rays causes the body to make endorphin’s.
  3. Hair Pulling :  I know you are saying “What?”  I did too but it really is a addiction.  Compulsive hair pulling is known as trichotillomania.  This is a psychological condition.  It is also known as trich.  Their are some people that can not overcome the overwhelming urge to pull their hair.  The hair pulling becomes so extreme it leaves bald patches.  Some people with this addiction also may chew or eat their hair.

So there are the three strange addictions I chose to write about.  I never heard about them being addictions until now.  I learn something new everyday and I love doing the research for my unusual topics.

I might add a few more strange addictions in this post in the future.  Let me know what you think? Do you have a strange addiction?  Have you heard about these as addictions?
