When fingernails scratch against a chalkboard, at times it makes a certain pitch that makes people cringe. Science has explained why this happens. A person screaming is usually an unpleasant sound. It resonates at a certain frequency much like the fingernails on chalkboard.
Several studies have hypothesized that creepiness is an evolutionary response to potentially dangerous situations.
Here are some things that creep me out.
Yup, I’m luckily for the most part I encounter lovely, wonderful human beings. But when I watch the news and see some of the things people can do to one another, no thanks!
Paying my student loan
One of the silver linings during this pandemic, is for now my payments are on hold. Whew!
Being without a book
To pass the time when I must wait somewhere for a long time. UGH
What creeps you out?
Thanks for reading and see you next time!
