Only 4 things, you say? Now it makes much more sense.

"You can only remember 4 things at a time"

What does that even mean? I have more than 4 memories I can think of right now.

I think it is supposed to mean short term memory. Like go to the grocery store knowing you need milk, eggs, bread, and butter. Even so, if I remember correctly from my psychology class, people can remember up to seven plus or minus two things from a list at once.

the flower also smells heavily of rotting meat to aid in its pollination, as flies and such are attracted to it

The memory one is false, the brain can handle 7 plus or minus 2 things in the working memory which has the least space, the brain picks out what is important from the sensory memory (everything that your senses are feeling at the moment), these memories move to the working memory where they are either learned by rehearsal or forgotten, the memories that are remembered move then to the long term memory. This is why phone numbers in the US are seven digits... I'm in the middle of a summer course in Psychology and this post bugged me.

. . . and the giant flower smells like ass and/or **** , because it uses flies as its pollinators.

While the one about Rafflesia is true, I am astonished that people could get so close to it without some kind of mask. I can remember visiting an exhibit a few years back and they had one of these flowers very well contained into an what appeared to be an airtight room. The guide said the plant has a very bad smell (in order to attract flies which it feeds on). You could open the door and enter if you wanted, but it was enough to open it just a little bit and you could already sense the horror. It smelled like tons of garbage filled carcasses that were **** on by an army of decomposing ******* .

Number one is bull **** , humans don't have enough hair on their bodies anymore for pillo erection to make any difference to body temperature. It had a function at one time, now it is simply a primal instinct.


The 4 item memory thing is so vague it has to be ***** , short term memory is 7 on average.

I can't even remember what I had for breakfast yesterday.

Or if I even hand breakfast.

technically, rafflesia isn't a flower, it's a parasite. it also smells like rotting corpses.

You also get goosebumps when your adrenaline starts flowing, as your body is trying to make you look bigger to any potential threat. As we don't have much body hair anymore, its effect is...minimal.

Rafflesia Arnoldii is a cunt ******* up my town with its goddamn weeds

The first fact about your hair standing to trap air to keep in heat, although still truthful, the result is no longer the same as described in the post. In reality, because most humans have far less hair on their arms and legs and elsewhere (primarily due to shaving and genetics), there is too much space between your hairs to effectively trap the air. It's the remnant of a mechanism that would have worked in a time when humans were generally hairier, but no longer.

It's too late, I'm pretty tired, and I'm relying on memory here, so forgive me if I'm wrong. However, I do believe this is the case.

So that's why most combinations are only four to 3 digits! That explains everything!
