Trivia number 93


I want this to be information one just usually doesn’t hear.  If you have I would like to know if you haven’t all the better you’ve learned something today.  With that being said here is the information for you to consider today.

REM atonia, or sleep paralysis, occurs in the typical sleeper every night to prevent people from acting out their dreams. Only a few muscles have the ability to move during REM sleep, such as the eye muscles, the auditory muscles, and the diaphragm for respiration.  The last one for today is: The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that between three and five million people worldwide get a serious case of the regular flu each year; tens of millions get milder cases. Between 250,000 and 500,000 people globally die of the flu every year.


Now go out and tell the world of your new found knowledge.  Smile it will make people wonder what you’ve been up to.  Join us tomorrow for another journey into the wonderful world of Wordsmith.  Click on the link below.  Who knows you may learn something along the way and some of the words may even bring a smile to your face.   Wise Custom Realty is looking for brokers in Missouri and Oklahoma call me for details.

Good morning James. I am not surprised by the flu statistics. I have been getting the shot for the last five years. Why play roulette? Have a good day.

Good morning James,

I wonder why the government hasn't passed a law restricting "flu"!

Make yourself a great day.

Hi James,

The flu is nothing to take lightly. Always get a flu shot. But I have not had one this year. All those deaths from flu... most are preventable.

Have a great day in Rogers my friend.

Best, Clint McKie

James, sleep paralysis--this kinda stuff I love reading about. I think I was already aware of it. I have to tell you, though, recently, I dreamt that some man was standing next to my bed, hovering over me. It was SO real that I screamed and kicked out at him and woke my poor husband up who had NO IDEA what was going on! It really felt like someone was right there. My heart beat so fast that it took me awhile to settle down and go back to sleep. The next day I had to explain what I dreamt to my husband--I had really worried him!

I did know about rapid eye movement and the effects on sleep from my psych degree, but the flu info is just down right scary.

Very interesting. I know someone who sits up, walks about and talks in their dream state. And its fun to take with them because they respond to you but while dreaming lol

Very interesting about sleep paralysis.  It makes sense for the body to recharge without added activity.  A

I think my legs move during REM because I seem to recall kicking my husband pretty hard.

Wow, I am shocked to know that the number of people dying from the flu is so high. I would have never thought that.

 Good morning, James. I did not know that that many people died of the flu every year. And as far as the REM sleep, I could believe that.
