Science behind everyday things

Hello! I think it's very interesting to see the scientific explanations for things we do everyday and don't even think about them. I'll start with this article from  Susan S. Lang https://news.cornell.edu/stories/2010/05/half-heard-phone-conversations-reduce-performance which explains why hering people on the phone is SO annoying. I always though that hearing a whole conversation (on the bus, at a cafe) was annoying but bearable, but the phones... I can't. Turn out it's because our brains always try to fill the missing info. I had no idea about this, a designer at work told me and I thought about sharing it here.

 

Do you know more examples? This could be very interesting...
