  1. Very Brave or Very Stupid

    Alternative title Full to Bursting.

    So. Today was my ultrasound. It was interesting.

    I had to drink two pints of water an hour before my appointment.
    I decided not to pee after 2:30 as my ultrasound was at 4:40 and I had to try and get two pints into me by about 3:40.
    I carefully measured out two pints to drink and I think I did pretty well to drink it.

    By 2:30 I came up with a pun. I'm past the point of no pee-turn I love puns, even ...
  2. Beyond Spare Parts

    by , Yesterday at 08:02 AM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    After writing my post regarding human spare parts I realized that there was a rather interesting extension to the idea; to wit, food production. Actually, I was going to write about the potential value of growing flesh from their own stems cells for cannibals and for vampires growing blood, but there arenít all that many people who would be interested in such food, but specially gene tailored flesh from some animals could be grown that way, and it probably will be a delicacy in a few decades. We ...
  3. It is Raining Cats

    All morning my cat has been bouncing around all over the place. I don't know if he was chasing after birds, or playing with other cats, or just hyper, but I would hear him thunking back and forth from the roof, to the tree, to the fence.

    I was going about my business just getting a few things done that I needed to do, when I happened to walk into the kitchen to grab something to eat and than wandered into the living room while I was eating. Suddenly I hear this noise, like something ...

  4. The Races Of Humans

    by , 09-15-2014 at 08:42 AM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    Within the last few days it occurred to me that I might have been mistaken; there might be more than one race within the human species, but skin color isnít relevant. I guess the seed was planted when someone asked me about the Blood Type Diet. But the race determiner isnít blood type; it is the Rh factor. Then I found a website that suggested this also http://rhnegativebloodsecrets.blogsp...nderthals.html .
    This site makes some assertions that may not be ...
  5. Words versus Images

    by , 09-12-2014 at 09:20 AM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    In Medieval times literacy was for clerics and few others. Umberto Eco quoted one thinker of that period as saying something along the lines of Paintings are the books of the illiterate was a commonplace. I have looked for this a few times but without success. I have also thought about it and the implications of those two types of perceiving and communicating.

    I believe that the difference still exists. I don't know what the official literacy rate is, but it probably overstates literacy ...
