Moreover, rainwater is typically not alkaline. Instead, it tends to be slightly acidic, with a pH of about 5.0–5.5. It may also be considerably more acidic than that if you’re collecting it from an environment with a lot of air pollution.

Environmental pollutants, harmful bacteria, and parasites can contaminate rainwater, and drinking it can make you sick. Boiling, filtering, and chemically treating rainwater can help make it safer for human consumption

How the Negative Photo Illusion Works. Now a days we can see few negative photos on social media with a point of concentration on its nose or eye part, if we watch it for 30 secs to 1 minute and again start blinking our eyes quickly on any white wall, we can see the colour image of that negative photo, so how this happens, what is the logic behind d this…. ⁉️

However, you look at a large image, the tiny movements in your eyes aren’t enough to reduce overstimulation. As a result, you experience what is known as a negative afterimage. As you shift your eyes to the white side of the image, the overstimulated cells continue to send out only a weak signal, so the affected colors remain muted. However, the surrounding photoreceptors are still fresh and so they send out strong signals that are the same as if we were looking at the opposite colors. The brain then interprets these signals as the opposite colors, essentially creating a full-color image from a negative photo.
