Some People Don’t Get Bitten By Mosquitoes — Why That’s True Will Surprise You

It’s Memorial Day weekend, which means the time for barbecues and nights outside has begun. But, unfortunately, it’s also the time that mosquitoes see as open season to dine on humans.



If you can’t spend a summer night outside without slapping your ankles — and you still end up with dozens of mosquito bites — then it might be true that the flying pests really do love you.

And those lucky people who say they don’t get bitten? They exist too.

Man jumps 1.63m from standing start

Kevin Bania is the holder of an unofficial world record after what you’ll doubtless agree is a quite extraordinary jump.

From a standing start, Bania leaps from the floor up to a platform just over 1.63m high (64.4375 inches).

Amusingly, that’s the same height as Victoria Beckham, so, if you can imagine it, Bania could just as easily have leapt on to her head, and (providing she kept still) landed and kept his balance.

At 5’10” himself, Bania can jump to within six inches (approximately 15cm) of his own height.

The 31-year-old Bania is a CrossFit athlete, a gym-based sport based on a variety of weightlifting, sprinting and jumping exercises.
