Chinese Man’s Sweat Turns Green

Q: Cheng Shuguo, 52, of Wuhan City, says he felt no discomfort, but went to a hospital because he was worried about his sweat turning green. Doctors thoroughly cleaned his armpits but it took only 10 minutes for his sweat to turn a piece of white gauze green again. They have carried out blood tests on Cheng, but found everything to be normal. “We can’t find the cause,” admitted a spokesman for the hospital which reported the case to the media in the hope of finding a solution. What could be causing this phenomenon?



Q: Some pilots suffer the illusion that they are sitting on the wing of their aircraft watching themselves in the cockpit. Every pilot will at some stage lose all sense of direction, height and speed, drawing attention to spatial disorientation (SD) – one of the most common factors in plane crashes, according to a report by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau. Aviation medicine specialist Dr. David Newman said 90 to 100 per cent of pilots experienced SD, which has been linked to between 15 and 26 per cent of fatal crashes worldwide. What causes pilots to experience SD?



Q: Judge Sunil Kumar Singh in the eastern state of Jharkhand, India, has advertised in newspapers asking the gods Ram and Hanuman to “appear before the court personally.” The gods have been asked to appear before the court after the judge said letters addressed to them went unanswered. Judge Singh presides in a court designed to resolve disputes quickly. The dispute is 20 years old and revolves around the ownership of a 1.4 acre plot of land housing two temples bequeathed to the two gods. Is this for real?

A: Yes, it is. But my understanding is those gods don’t read the local papers.


Q: Atlantis! Lemuria! Shamballha! Shangri-La! The names conjure up images of sunken cities or forgotten lands hidden in the impenetrable jungle or amongst mountain peaks somewhere beyond the edges of civilization. They also suggest ancient and powerful cultures and technologies long vanished from the world, remnants of which may still lie slumbering in the caverns far beneath the earth. Is there any truth in such beliefs?

A: Possibly. The only explainable reason our current civilization has survived for so long has to be that we are the least intelligent of the lot.
