Robecology comments on Oct 23, 2019:
Our "aroma memory" is interesting. Perhaps more primitive than our sight evolution is sensing flavors and smells/tastes (if in a fluid/liquid environment, it's more defined as "taste" rather than smell). That complex emotion and memory can be triggered by a simple sensory cue: the smell of winter air, for example. How do smells trigger such strong emotions and memories? The answer is likely due to brain anatomy. Incoming smells are first processed by the olfactory bulb, which starts inside the nose and runs along the bottom of the brain. The olfactory bulb has direct connections to two brain areas that are strongly implicated in emotion and memory: the amygdala and hippocampus. Interestingly, visual, auditory (sound), and tactile (touch) information do not pass through these brain areas. This may be why olfaction, more than any other sense, is so successful at triggering emotions and memories. https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/brain-babble/201501/smells-ring-bells-how-smell-triggers-memories-and-emotions

Arthur C. Clarke wrote the very prophetic Space Odessey series; If you think 2001 was good, do consider reading 2010....in which he predicts (via fiction) landing on one of Saturn's moons and discovering life below the ice there. They've since alleged that this is true (although Clarke's life form was monstrous.).

Aren't sexy high heel shoes called "Mules"? Technically this shoe doesn't qualify as a "mule".... "Like the animal whose name it shares, the shoe known as the mule is a hybrid creature. Just as the beast combines the characteristics of the donkey and the horse, the mule fuses elements of two disparate forebears: the pump, with its high heel and partially or entirely closed front; and the slipper, with its open back." https://www.wmagazine.com/story/mules-spring-trendy-shoes
Mark Twain - “The best cure for Christianity is reading the Bible.”
Robecology comments on Oct 22, 2019:
Mark Twain/Samuel Clemens was an enigma. He privately was religious...but publicly joked about the hypocrisy every chance he had. Twain’s skepticism about religion lasted all of his life. He had a personal faith - he said he believed in God, attended church and donated money for the construction of a church. But he skewered religious hypocrisy wherever he found it. “Man is without any doubt the most interesting fool there is,” he wrote in “Letters from the Earth,” a commentary on Bible stories written in 1909, a year before his death. https://www.sltrib.com/religion/global/2017/10/16/new-film-on-mark-twain-highlights-his-religious-doubts/
[thevintagenews.com] I guess, but wouldn't evolution have addressed this?
Robecology comments on Oct 22, 2019:
Evolution has had many, many dead ends and wrong turns. Consider why men are still born with a foreskin; even though we now know that untouched foreskins promote more genital/venereal diseases. If it hadn't been for the development of circumcision, then many generations of a higher illness/death frequency would have eventually favored no foreskin...but we "bypassed" evolution. Neanderthals were but one of several well known Pre-homo-sapiens humanoid species that despite their massive strength and endurance, had many small evolutionary "dead ends"....the Eustachian tube was simply one more these folk discovered. https://www.mayoclinic.org/tests-procedures/circumcision/about/pac-20393550

A Nissan electric car that can power house [deccanchronicle.com]
Robecology comments on Oct 20, 2019:
In the far future, and not in America. The owner of an electric car will be able to meet household power needs from the vehicle itself based on a technology developed by Nissan, the Japanese auto giant. It plans to introduce the new ‘Leaf’ electric cars in the Indian market (in India) next year and is on the look-out for local partners for collaboration on the application of its latest ‘Vehicle-to-Home’ technology (V2H) in the state. This is just talk. They're "looking for collaboration partners". No concept cars have even been produced. But do remember; There's serious pressure to keep you/us addicted to fossil fuels. We - and Russia - pay the lowest taxes on fuels in the world. I'm reading Maddow's book "Blowout"....about the excesses, and tricks being used in the industry to keep us "hooked".

What If the Earth Was One Living Organism? [youtube.com]
Robecology comments on Oct 17, 2019:
The Gaia hypothesis - Earth behaving like an organism....makes a lot of sense. We get a "fever" when a population of germs gets a "foothold" in a part of our body. The fever actually is a mechanism that not only kills the germs, but speeds the production of anti-germ chemicals (anti-bodies and WBC's). Could Global warming be a "fever" that Gaia earth has caught to rid it of excess "germs"? It's interesting that as earth evolved life - it started in the oceans...and was only able to come on land once Ozone protecion was in place. This Ozone wasn't possible until we built up at least 16% Oxygen. Dinosaurs not only dealt with lower O2 levels but much higher CO2 levels...there was no ice nor snow for most dinosaur evolution. So Gaia first synthesized Oxygen in the ocean. Then the excess oxygen in the upper atmosphere allowed the UV protecting "Ozone" layer to form...which then allowed land life to evolve. But CO2 acts like a greenhouse....and over the past 200 years we've unburied and burned (dumped in to our atmosphere) what took hundreds of millions of years to store underground...carbon. So this greenhouse gas gives the earth a "fever' which then acts to destroy those who dug up and dumped the CO2 in to the air....especially the dumb ones who live too close to the ocean? hmmmmm? Watch...for a solution - by Elon Musk....the CEO of Tesla... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xKCuDxpccYM=IwAR3k79xSQAHtyipKRkOQQzgh9oRAzI0B6WCUP5ApSyVYVr9-4cSlTZzkf-s
Good almost afternoon! Do you have a never fully satisfied sweet tooth, like I do?
Robecology comments on Oct 17, 2019:
This is why I'm signed on for "battling obesity". I learn tricks of (diet) self control from them. Ed and the others are modest...and they've lost a lot more weight than I ever did...but their "tricks" helps me keep track of my weight. Here's the root of the problem; We were raised....before we could walk and talk....to like certain foods. We were given a variety of things by our parents in response to our "tantrums"... -hugs -breast milk -water/milk in a bottle -wise snack foods - veggies, complex foods. -unwise snack foods; candy, sugar-based. -ignoring - letting us cry or struggle with nothing. We were told - very young....to eat...even when we weren't hungry. So fighting "sweet tooth" habits is far worse and more challenging than fighting a drug addiction. Drug addictions start in our teen years...Food addictions....again....before we could walk and talk. Don't blame your parents. But do educate the parents you know now....if they'll listen to you Food addiction is powerful...and pervasive. https://foodaddictioninstitute.org/faq/

I might finally get the answer regarding which came first.
Robecology comments on Oct 16, 2019:
We all know evolution works. So to answer that eternal question - which came first; the chicken or the egg...; ...There were - many millions of years ago....many bird-like, egg laying reptiles....but then a few evolved that were more bird than reptiles They flew short distances...and took up the niche that would become our domestic chickens. Eventually a few of these Reptilian-birds met....did the intimate thing (no intercourse in birds and reptiles....just touching "cloacas" where sperm from the male entered the female) and voila ...the first chicken egg occurred. So technically; the chicken came first. When a male and female bird-reptilian-chicken-like creature met; they mated. Their children became more chicken like...and less reptilian....over many thousands of years.

What is your point...that voter registration is not being adhered to? Can you tell us where this is the case? I tried finding some in USA...I can't. Do you realize the racist and biased push of this chart, above? Where can you go, or cite - that it's legal to vote without documentation in the U.S.? On the other hand; do you know what "gerrymandering" is? Do you know that many legitimately registered voters were "wiped off the records"? https://apps.voxmedia.com/at-preview/in-person-voter-fraud/?initialWidth=911=in-person-voter-fraud__graphic How much in-person voter fraud was detacted and persecuted between 2000 and 2014? 35 . How many people voted in that time period? 834,065,926 Republicans have accused several organizations of planning or carrying out voter fraud, targeting groups like the New Black Panther Party (which isn't affiliated with the original Black Panther Party), and community organizing group ACORN with various accusations during and after President Barack Obama's 2008 election. But voter ID laws - including the much-scrutinized law in North Carolina - don't address the types of fraud that do happen. The North Carolina law in fact made it easier to vote by mail-in absentee ballot by making registration forms more easily available online, and it doesn't require absentee voters to show photo ID. So those who are clever enough can skirt voter ID demands in North Carolina. @bigpawbullets; Your racism and Xenophobia is showing.

It's a serious - and all too common - problem. Two routes; Either ask her to go to counseling with you...or.. Let go lightly. Wish her well... Be firm - not loud, not angry, just firm.... in your resolve to set out on your own. Don't use any bad language. Don't rage/act-out in front of the kids... ust tell her it's time for you both to part. No "down on your knees" no long "let's fix this" discussions. My first wife died young...which set the stage for me ending a relationship if it wasn't working. I"ve since divorced 3 times....and have nothing bad to say about any of my "ex's"...I take at least 50% of the "blame" for the ending. Ken Keyes Jr. has been a master to me....I've read many of his books. His strategy of "preferences vs addictions" and "hold on tightly-let go lightly" has worked many times for me. https://www.thriftbooks.com/a/ken-keyes-jr/385510/

Why Is Sex Like Riding A Bike?

I''d be in serious trouble if the coffee plantations went through some sort of catastrophic collapse....as is forecast by many climate-change scientists.... "Study after study has laid out the threat climate change poses to the coffee industry. Rising temperatures will bring drought, increase the range of diseases and kill large swaths of the insects that pollinate coffee plants. " https://time.com/5318245/coffee-industry-climate-change/

I've heard of using photons from our sun...and even other stars, to "push" a solar sail...but this sounds/reads too absurd to me. I'll live another couple - maybe three decades longer...I hope to see science focusing on getting our earth get in better shape.
This is exactly what it's like. It changes fast, and often!

Great pic! I hope that's not photoshopped....but I know Florida weather enough to know how real that is!

Good morning. Here's a sentence for you to complete:. If only ....
Robecology comments on Oct 15, 2019:
No, sorry; not for me. I abhor the "what ifs". I won't look at fancy cars and nice houses and "pine".... I love who I am. I love the life I lived. I have no regrets...and I think it's unwise to even consider them.

Hey there.
Robecology comments on Oct 14, 2019:
The religious are, indeed, #religulous. Be glad you're done with him...or he with you. Instead of navigating "the dating world" just navigate "the world"...you always meet someone better when you're not "looking" for them...but do "get out there"...

Few know what critters lived before dinosaurs.
Robecology comments on Oct 14, 2019:
And there was long evolution of both animals and plants - both on land and in the ocean..before dinosaurs. Palm trees and Cycads predate ferns, which predate conifers, which predate flowering trees. The Palm trees you see today were around long before dinosaurs.....
Happy Monday! What's your favorite frozen treat? Mine is butter pecan ice cream ๐Ÿ˜
Robecology comments on Oct 14, 2019:
Any chocolate "frozen treat" works for me....the complex "Rocky Road" and other nut, marshmallow, and chocolate sauces and syrups do it for me... But Rich brownies are decadent...as are Pies....the more complex, the better.
I previously posted about my recent breakup.
Robecology comments on Oct 14, 2019:
Aging is catastrophic on sex drive. Men need Cialis or Viagra...women need hormones...to "maintain the sexual adventures" we enjoyed commonly - what seems like just a few years ago. You simply have to weigh the merits of keeping your active (intercourse) intimacy in tact - or switch to a non-intercourse "intimacy" that works for you and your partner. It's a tough call...and varies from day to day, person to person. The keys - the most important issues, IMO, is staying flexible, open, and healthy.

Sailing, anyone?
Robecology comments on Oct 13, 2019:
Ahhh, yes. In my days when I had a sailboat...the highlights of the trip was when the lady chose to relax enough to strip down...thanks for bringing back great memories!
I was called liberal scum on agnostic.com. Seriously!
Robecology comments on Oct 13, 2019:
Any name-caller is...in the world of "debate" protocol... giving up. They're admitting defeat in the worst way possible...by expressing their anger at their loss with personal attacks. So my advice to you is... 1. Ignore the individual who does this. They're not worth your effort and attention. 2. If you see a possibility to help them...(you feel sorry for their cornered/confrontational remark...) ....share this with them. My motto is to always help the handicapped. They're just ill, not well, not equipped to debate with standard logic.

Robecology comments on Oct 13, 2019:
It's not Menohorror, or Menodamnation...it's just "menopause" ...a pause, or tapering off of the menses cycle. Maybe we just should let go of the "stigma"...
