My grandpops is older than the chainsaw. You believe that? When he was born they did not exist. Sitting here at 36 I can list nonstop for hours all the things I know of that my son will never understand. Just looking at my life in the last 30 YEARS is mind boggling to see how much things have changed. I even remember a time when you could drink at 19 and seatbelts were a factory option.


One reason to avoid cryogenics is that you might then have to pay off the public debt your generation ran up. Certain celluar processes definitely continue.

Rapid change? Just look at the returning Vietnam Vets... one guy walked into a bank and lined up behing someone at a teller window not having any idea there was ONE line at banks. The security guard came up behind him and tapped him on the shoulder... not a good thing to do to a guy who had been in combat three days earlier.

Happened to think of this one today after watching so much news about rain.

Pre-science observers, or rather the survivors likely discovered the best first indication of a Tsunami is water massively disappearing or rather receding from the shoreline not seeing a big wave on the horizon.

Likely anyone who walked out to collect stranded sea life or items wasn't seen alive again.

Not really science, but more the idea - contrarianism. Supposedly working against your own best interests.

It might seem more logical to practice something you want to perfect like repeating a free throw from a foul line while concentrating on correcting the minor variation, but in actual experimentation people can improve practice of anything faster by adding in more variation to their practice than trying to keep such a narrow scope.

Not sure if this is due to the mind actually losing concentration by doing something the same, or maybe the brain needs more variation to get the proper feel for making the necessary mechanics of the shot. Or maybe it's both.
