Fidget Much? One-Third of the Population Suffers from ‘Hatred of Movements’
If you can’t stand it when people around you are fidgeting or pacing, you may be suffering from a case of misokinesia, or a hatred of movements. Researchers found that up to one-third of the population is easily irritated by fidgeting. People with misokinesia experience reactions such as anger, anxiety or frustration. Older adults appear to have a hard time coping with others’ fidgeting, which suggests that misokinesia may increase with age. According to the study author, “A reason that people fidget is because they’re anxious or nervous so when individuals who suffer from misokinesia see that, they may mirror it and feel anxious or nervous as well.”
Gender Reveal + Milk Crate Challenge = Foolishness
One couple decided to combine gender reveal parties and a TikTok challenge-- disclosing the sex of their baby while attempting the highly dangerous “Milk Crate Challenge”. The viral Milk Crate Challenge involves trying to climb a staircase-like stack of plastic boxes. One guy attempted to incorporate the challenge into his gender reveal party by scaling milk crates while holding a parcel containing either blue or pink powder. The viral video shows the guy wobbling as he reaches the halfway point, causing the crates to collapse. He topples off and hits his head on a box. During the fall, the blue powder gets released into the air,signifying that the baby is a boy. The clip concludes with the party guests, including the pregnant mother-to-be, going buckwild over the result. The head-cracking stunt didn’t sit well with social media. One person tweeted, “About to be a father and taking these sorts of risks with his life for a viral video … Lordt." Another wrote, “Two points: The bar is really low out here. Let’s all pray for that little baby boy. RIGHT NOW.” However, others suspected that the display was a fake. One wrote... "she looks to be waaaay late into a pregnancy to find out the sex of the baby,” while another added, “This has to be fake. Her stomach is basically at her chest.”
