"Deaths in the family can unearth secrets that have been hiding for decades. After this Reddit user's grandfather passed away, he and his family were going through the belongings left behind and getting things organized. In the garage, they found a large, old trunk.

View Your Biorhythms Charts


"Biorhythm charts illustrate the principle that we are influenced by physical, emotional, and intellectual cycles. Many people report that they can improve the quality of their lives by monitoring the highs and lows of these cycles and acting accordingly. For example, you might try to schedule important exams during your intellectual highs, avoid talking to your significant other during your emotional lows, or arranging the lineup of your baseball team around their physical highs"

There is also a list of celebrities charts that you can see.

Also once  you've generated your charts there are good explanations of what they all mean.

Top tips for the month..


"Most of these signs were designed to help people -- to get where they're going, to find a pet, to avoid grievous bodily harm -- and yet some writing-utensil-wielding wiseasses felt compelled to come along and totally deface them.
