Are you any good at guessing people’s age?
Some new research says you probably are, if your nose is working well.
The study shows that young and old people do give off distinctive odors. They’re not sure why, but researchers say people can reliably distinguish the body odor of elderly people from a whiff of the young or middle-aged. But they go on to say the odor of the elderly is actually pretty neutral. And it's a lot more pleasant than the body odor coming from younger to middle-aged guys, who tend to smell the worst.
OK. So this means the thing about Grandma's house having an "Old Person Smell" is all in my mind?
You know what's also a freaky statistic? No joke. An older mattress will tend to gain weight over the years. It's because they accumulate things like dirt, skin and hair. Think about that the next time you sleep over at Gradma's house.
Four years ago, Bob Dylan, who is Jewish, recorded a Christmas album.
It may be surprising to some that it was actually pretty good! And it inspired him to be involved in the creation of this video, which is amazing.
