Finally, another urban myth debunked, and something we have known all along: the twin in the lower bed lives longer than his/her twin sibling in the upper bed. You don’t believe me? Well, apparently Einstein predicted this in his theory of relativity and scientists have now proven it. You can listen to the Podcast Interview or download the transcript of the Podcast here.
I expect these to become questions on questionnaires for life insurance within weeks:
In your childhood did you sleep in a bunker bed?
- a) yes
- b) no
- c) don’t know or can’t remember
If you answered the previous question with yes, did you sleep in:
- a) the lower bed
- b) the upper bed
- c) neither lower or upper bed
- d) both lower and upper bed
- e) don’t know or can’t remember
And there are still people that maintain that science doesn’t play a major role in our daily lives!?
With thanks to this article that eluded me to this new finding.
