Why do female deer respond when they hear a human baby crying? Why do we sometimes forget where we were going and what we intended to do? Why does Pharaoh Ramesses II need a passport? There are so many questions! The good news is that we have answers to all of them!
Any person, no matter dead or alive, should have a passport to travel across France.
That’s why the government of Egypt had to make a passport for Pharaoh Ramesses II so that they could bring his body to France for restoration. Besides that, when the plane with the body of Ramesses landed in Paris, he was greeted with all the honors.
Female deer instinctively run for help if they hear a human baby cry.
The reasons for this is due to the fact that the cry of a human baby falls within the same frequency range as the cry of a calf deer. The same thing happens among many mammals, including a human. When we hear a cry of a newborn baby, kitten, or puppy, the part of our brain responsible for responding to it gets activated and it prompts us to rush to protect the small one.
There’s a reason why we forget why we entered a room the second we do so.
According to psychologists, passing a doorway activates something called the “doorway effect” – a mechanism that helps divide one group of memories from another.
As soon as we step over the threshold of another room, our brain archives the thoughts we had in the previous room and empties space for the impressions and tasks in the new room. Thanks to this effect, we can easily shift to performing new tasks and organize the information received by our brain.
The belly button of each person is unique.

Ravens know more about justice than humans do.
Ravens almost always act together and share the food they get so that everyone gets an equal part. If ravens notice that one of them takes more than he is supposed to, other birds instantly lose their trust in the cheater and stop cooperating with him.
There is a dish in France that should be eaten only if the head is covered with a napkin.
This dish is made from ortolan bunting – a small singing bird. At first, the bird is fed with figs only for one month. Then, it is drowned in brandy and is fried as a whole piece on a strong fire for several minutes. When eating this dish, it’s recommended to cover your head with a napkin.
Some people say the napkin helps to enjoy the aroma while others say that it’s meant to hide from God while eating such a wonderful creature.
