One: Kitty Cats, UV Lights, and Human Stripes
What do tigers skunks Tabby's zebras and humans have in common? It's not fair that some of us are Harry and it's not something simple like eyes or mouth.
Still no ideas.
What would you say if I told you this feature is something, you've had your entire life. And what would you say if I told you that your cat or dog likely was aware this thing. Your buddy before you go?
List of episodes. We're going to explore this surprising physical feature. Most of us have the likely on somewhere of human Stripes would dig into why we have them, how they look and what that patent, Arrangement names, dogs and UV lights, times of the whole phenomenon.
I'm re s in Wicks and this is misc.
Before we get started and sings, this is our first episode. I think I should give you a quick rundown on what the show is about.
Essentially misc is a podcast about the bizarre, miscellaneous tickets. I stay up way too late reading about. It's honestly, as simple as that, so let's go cycling.
So last night I'm hanging out doing my usual prey bed, walk around the internet. That's what I affectionately called a tower of scrolling. I do before bed. Every night. I was on bread. It means and I came across one in particular. The post in question was lifted from Tumblr and was essentially a cascading, the drug full of linked and little known facts. Starting is Cascade off. Was the topic of human Stripes. I mean, evidently my curiosity Pates and I tumbled a right on down that rabbit hole. So, let's start with what exactly, these are also known as black as lines. Human stripes are invisible. To the naked eye there, a series of patents typically arranged in lines on the back blinds on the chest in the stomach. Simple straightforward lines on the arms and legs and his waves all across your head.
As a quick side note. I have what my mom calls about knock which is the faintest line down the center of my face. It only really shows if I'm frustrated angry really stressed or if I've been exercising, really hard and I'm not kind of curious if that's what this is. But anyway,
These lines were first observed by German dermatologist Alfred lascaux in 1981. After he noticed many of his patients rashes in the most seem to follow sinhala full Nations lessons if they were traced along invisible lines.
The reason behind these lines wasn't exactly clear to hold out as they don't follow blood vessels notes or any other physiological system and they typically only become visible in two cases. The 1st is when a patient is suffering from a condition that causes a reaction in the skin and the second is if the patient has cameras, mm.
For those who don't know, reason or cameras begin is to cells that have different DNA from each other these cells fuse and as they grow and divide, they contain slightly different instructions on how to produce proteins including pigments.
And people is typically not noticeable. But in animals, it can be saying some images of cats or dogs that look as though two different animals, having sliced in half and two different types of being fused together. For example, a cat. That's why I know one side and having the other with a perfect line, separating the two hogs.
If you haven't seen it, hit pause. And look it up. It's both fascinating and beautiful.
According to black guy, if a person has cameras on the chances are that they Stripes will be somewhat pronounce compared to someone who doesn't, if you don't. Thanks for the fact that I was going to sell the program to produce the same amount of pigment. We're unlikely, to be able to notice them more than they could. I,
It brings up a couple of questions for me. Is there a way we can see our orange stripes? And if so, how exactly can I do that?
Thankfully, the answer is yes, and you don't need to acquire skin condition to do. So and the sources of ultraviolet, light, your stripes that easily viewable. So do you have to do is go and get one. But where exactly, you saw that UV light old black light and where you decide to look at yourself? I can only assume you go to be naked is a hundred percent up to you. I definitely advised to do it inside by yourself. Ultraviolet. Light is also a white dogs and cats come into the equation, because both cats and dogs. Eyes are able to say ultraviolet waves. They can easily see out stripes and accept them as a regular part of what we look like, even though the majority of us on or where we have been that bull. So let's take a step back for a moment and think about that, you'll have a completely different to you of you than you do, maybe two, then we're a little monstrous but we're worthy of love for Godless or affectionate distain if your cat cousin.
That also makes me wonder what exactly are all pet saying.
Earlier, we went into a top-level explanation of what they Stripes look like and how they are arranged that I'll stripes on side denticle. Much like a fingerprint that you need to eat us. And again, much like a fingerprint. A stripes are arranged in lines and worlds, which is a word. I cannot say instead of a tigon, think more of a tortoiseshell cat, stretch clutches, and find patterns all over out buddies. It's not exactly pretty. However, so the fact that we can see how lines is something, we should probably be thankful for.
It might be tough to build a mental image of what I'm trying to describe. So to help you out. I put the photo on my Twitter feed to illustrate my handled, an episode description. Check it out if you want them.
Finally, I really want to touch on the reason why we had phase lines.
Funnily enough. There's no evolutionary function as to why we have these unlike other evolutionary Relic. So leftovers, like however, fingers get wrinkly underwater, the fact that we have largely inconvenient wisdom teeth.
Instead Eliza simply cellular relics that fellow out development from a single cell to a fully fall into human.
I really can't explain it. Better than Kate, Horowitz writer of article as skin is covered with invisible stripes. On Mental Floss with a ride.
Each one of us started out as a single cell and then a little blood cells as a cell's / differentiated, some of the kind of muscles of his buns, out of his organs and some of the kind of skin as long as skin cells, continue dividing, the expanded and stretch to cover quickly. Growing body one cell line, pushed and swirled through another like steamed milk, bought into an espresso. It's make a latte.
So essentially this means that just like without fingerprints alerts and tongue out. Stripes is something that make us special and unique. This might sound corny, but they're also a reminder of where they come from and just how much development it took us to get to why we are. So if you're ever having one of those days, while you feeling unlovable are unhuman or inhuman, sorry, remember that. Despite being able to see your monsters line, your pet still loves you and that those lines of something that make you completely human and very unique. Thanks for listening to the first episode of misk, taxes of resource is used for research. And today's episode of a Feather reading links will be added to my Twitter, which is a try Roy. Hit my handle to the episode description, and the links to all of that research her in there as well.
Yeah, thanks again for listening to the first episode of misc. I'll catch you next week.
