I think hair and eye genetics are so interesting (@Simmer22, I read pretty much the whole article you linked earlier about grey eyes). I'm 6 months pregnant right now and I'm so excited trying to work out what the baby will look like. I'm ginger/blue eyes (my parents are brown hair/green eyes, and blonde hair/blue eyes - as I've said in another thread, I get my hair from my maternal grandmother) and my partner is blonde and has heterochromia (one eye is blue, the other a murky green) (his Mum has brown hair and greeny-brown eyes, and his Dad (from what he remembers) is Strawberry blonde, but he doesn't remember his eye colour). Sadly, I don't believe heterochromia is genetic in most cases so I doubt my baby will have it, though I have my fingers crossed because it's my favourite thing about him.

i have a new question


when i come to the familair area's or streets (and it's most likely the lot and playground) i get flashbacks from the past
but it's not just the area's i get triggers that i remember something again or that i still at somehow remembered it

it's also from looking to an old picture from someone i know for so long now (i see something in the past what i did, and it's most likely the good one's. such as: bumping into my old friend who used to be so close to me)

but the question is: can you get rid of it at somehow?

not walking to a place is hard and is most likely impossible since i have to walk on some place to get at someone or something else a bit faster

This definitely is a stupid question but does anyone know what is this picture...



I'm redecorating my home and that picture would make an awesome feature on my bedroom wall (if found as a poster).

Depends.

If the flashbacks are nice to remember, mostly neutral, or bad memories that don't cause any lasting issues, then it's just regular memories. It's common to remember things from your childhood if you see pictures or people from your past, perhaps get flashbacks, or get a "deja-vu" or some sort of feeling in a place you used to spend time but haven't been in for a long time.

If the flashbacks and triggers constantly make you feel anxious or afraid other than what would be normal from remembering something bad, then there may be a problem. Places, faces, etc. can trigger bad feelings, anxiety, fear, and some very unlucky ones who've been through something traumatic can get PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder). If the feelings trigger stronger than normal reactions or emotions, anger, violence, extreme anxiety, avoidance, etc., then it's a problem. Sometimes it's possible to do something yourself, while other times you may need help with handling it.

If you have very bad memories from the places, and don't want to go there because of that, then you'll need to consider how important it is for you to be able to go there - and whether you may need some kind of therapy to get through it, or if you'll be able to do some exposure therapy on yourself.

Avoiding the issue is rarely a good strategy, because you may end up limiting yourself, sometimes in ways that are exhausting to live with, or even harmful to your mental wellbeing and health.

Mmmm make sense i was the one who clicked on helpfull, and by so far most of them are the good one's but i don't have PTSD so that's a good thing i don't have that
and by so far i just see things from the past and sometimes i just get dejavu's

i'm working to get over the past but it's hard sometimes though i'm talking to an adult (who's older then me) to talk about stuff (just the one's i trust like my cousin or 2 quidance of mine who i can trust)
i also try to think more about myself then the other years

i don't have any questions about that anymore, you answered everything right and i'll think about it if some place is important to me or not
i knew that avoiding places are rarely good though

I got a question that is bugging me for so long:
Do you like something because you are already good at it, or is it the opposite, you like something and then you get good at it?

how do you make a poll? because i tried to make a poll but as soon as i posted it, there wasn't something you could click of
instead of that i posted something which wasn't a poll

@bestSomeone are you talking to me or something? if so i'm sorry i just saw your comment when this was 9 days ago

BestSomeone, probably a mix of both. At the same time, you can't truly like something until you've tried, and it's possible to get tired of something you've previously liked to do, even if you're very good at it.

Usually if people want to do a poll, they use the agree, disagree, funny, etc. buttons like agree=red, disagree=blue, and so forth. Perhaps someone else knows of another way.

oh no i didn't mean that one
i mean something like this https://modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=624949 but i failed it when i tried to make a poll
i tried making a poll about if people are going inside and then clicking on *yes quite often/always* *sometimes* *once in a while* or *no never*

but instead of that i maked a topic i do know you could click on, agree, disagree, funny, helpful and love, when i know where the topic is about i click on either those one's when there's need to

Random thoughts I have to get off my chest!
I have an old book on relativity that describes the Lorentz-Fitzgerald transformation as a rotation about an imaginary axis (time axis) in space-time. The last course I took in Relativity used a metric like they do in GR. I searched the university library and found the metric used in many of the text - no sign of the rotational description.
I asked the professor why would they write the texts to hide the rotational nature of the LF transformation. He replied that it made it easier for students to transition to GR. This hiding of the physical implications of the math was disturbing because that is a lame excuse for hiding the physics; true enough GR has been tested, but other physics hypotheses predict much of the same thing so that doesn't disprove those hypotheses either. With GR, for me it's "show me the worm hole".
You wouldn't hide the imaginary component of the probability distribution in quantum mechanics, for example.
Another reason why I like the older textbooks!
Considering the recent banter going about the cold dark matter theory - dark matter and dark energy being the "stuff" they used to correct observation when the GR hypothesis failed to predict. "GR doesn't work, add some dark matter here, some dark energy there, and viola!". Then they go through the entire zoo particles of the Standard Model and none of them can be dark enough dark matter... fail. The just pretend that the Standard Theory is wrong. Pretty cheeky, that! And where's the effects of dark matter in our solar system? Large masses, like our sun, should be capturing more and more dark matter but gravity is "constant". It's a terrible hypothesis.
As for the "Universe is a holograph" hypothesis: laughable! That hypothesis is based on quantum simulations not predicting gravity as they expected with gravitons and such. but show me the jar of gravitons! Seriously, they simply copied much of electrodynamics to gravity and expected it to work. A good guess but it didn't pan out.
There are times when I feel that there is an effort to hide the true nature of physical law for their own nefarious purposes.

Lots of inspirational dairy farms around here, just down the street. The area was settled by Danish dairyfolks back in the early 20th century.
I am envious, in a way. I want to be self sufficient - couple of dairy goats or Dexter cows, rabbits, chickens, a large vegetable garden. An acre of chicken feed, and about 3 acres of Miscanthus giganteus (aka "Elephant Grass") which is a very efficient to grow biofuel.
I'd probably reduce the elephant grass to charcoal or gassify it.
Make a little steam engine and boiler like the old Stanly Steamer car design, and voila! I have power.
Get a few acres of cheap land not really fit for agriculture as Elephant grass is a different kind of grass that grows in poor soil, dig a well, put in septic, drop a double wide and a steel barn on it and Bob's your Uncle I'm good to go.
I suppose if I can't get enough acres for the elephant grass, I'll have to get out the Mr. Fusion and put up a fake windmill to throw people off the scent that I have such a thing.

yesterday i was really tired, it looked a bit blurry, i also got a headache, not as bad as i thought but here comes the worst part

i saw a little black stripes, i never got them before, i know from maybe 4 years ago i took a hot shower at my best friends house, i saw something black i wasn't feeling well either
so i stopped taking a long and hot shower right after i was about to black out, i knew what to do and i was better in no time

but should i be worried about yesterday at the evening when i saw a little black stripes in my eyes? i never had them before

the headache is because of the possibly menstruationpain, and the blurry part was because i was pretty tired but the little black stripped is a mysterious thing
and no i don't have migraine

I dunno why I woke up thinking this:

Is your right hand your right hand because it's the "right" (correct) hand to hold things in? and your left hand because it's the hand that's "left" (remains)?

it was kinda like that yeah, but it was more likely that i wanted to search something up, i clicked with one of them and while i read the letters i couldn't see what it was said
and that was likely that i saw a little bit black in my left eyes mostly but also a bit to my right eyes

i was so glad i didn't passed out but i was so terrified since i didn't knew what it something was but when i notice it again i'm calling for help next time
i just wanted to sleep yesterday since i was pretty tired and saw a bit blurry but the light at the evening (at the livingroom) woke me up till like 1:30 or so and didn't woke up once after that (i don't have work in the morning so i slept till like 10PM)

i'm feeling a lot better though

i have this random question

but i think i have feelings from one of my friends, on sunday one of my male friends visited me, and we spend the time alone most of it
we had so much fun together, he even buyed fries for me, i buyed the drinks, we spended the time close to the beach

and when we were at my home we were laughing so hard on how we were singing and how i can imagine it me being on the stage (when i take the shower) when he also has the same common as me
and i don't know how but i feel something more as just friends, i just saw it 1 day after he visited me

there's likes and dislikes about him:

likes: humor, friendly, supporting, funny, helpfull, kind, friendly, understandable caring and honest

dislikes: flirting with other chicks, anger (at some times) and protective

and the question is: do you have advices on how to tell him, i don't wanna come off and tell him i have feelings for him, especially not in public when everyone is gonna hear you

For me, that thing was drawing and being an authority on certain art forms like cartooning and CG animation.

I really want to draw in the manga\anime style as well as the Disney style. I've been meaning to do a picture of Atom (aka Astro Boy) and Pinocchio saying "I'm a real boy!" (Atom\Astro Boy's origins are not unlike Pinocchio's: he was created to be a son for a man who worked in a hands-on field.) with Kimba and Simba on the respective sides. I am actually working on an article on the origin of manga and anime and it's influence on the Japanese public and internationally. For those of you in America who grew up with Marine Boy, although it gained a popular enough following in the US, it was actually an obscure anime that didn't do so well, according to American expatriate in Japan, Peter Payne, who runs a variety of shops out of Gunma prefecture, Japan.

Either way, acquiring the knowledge to do well in my field is something of a challenge, but I enjoy the challenge because of the interesting insights on things.

Also, footnotes in pop culture, like the 2 season series Freakazoid! had referenced Astro Boy and Marine Boy in a character featured in 2 episodes named Hero Boy whose catch phrase was "I must succeed!". I should mention Johnathan Harris played Freakazoid's manservant (name escapes me), Ed Asner played Sgt. Mike Cosgrove, an advisor to Freakazoid! not unlike that of a father, and Ricardo Montalban played the villain Gutierrez, who ran the company who made the computer chip that transformed Dexter Douglas, Freakazoid's original human form into what he became. So not only was Freakazoid! jampacked with numerous references and gags, but also a number of guest stars during the short 2 season run, with Norm Abrams (the carpenter) as the big guest for the series finale.

My biggest question is, what's next to conquer in my intellectual conquest?
