That's pretty cool.

TIL that one of the consultants I know at the hospital has a private pilot's licence.
Please note that despite the lovely avatar Sungura gave me, I am not a medical doctor.

Possibly my proudest moment on the fora.

thats fantastic if its easier for her to read, but i wouldn't jump to conclusions on it being purely because she is dyslexic.

I'm not having quirks, I've been having significant impairment for a large proportion of my life. The label of dyslexia actually explains a whole hell of a lot about my behaviours and experiences. And it was surprising how the shift to this font made it easier for words to become their intended unit, instead of a string of characters flipping and moving around.

Make sure you wash your hands. I'd recommend a little alcohol, some vegetable oil, milk, or dish soap. Bar soap might not cut it.

I wonder why people get sympathy for bees. Bees are like bomber planes with klaxons blaring terror all around the vicinity. I've never seen them reach into a flower. Those terrorist bomber planes would never do girly things like that.

Then one landed on my hand and bit me.

When I was a kid (maybe 6 or 7) a bee or wasp of some sort stung by bottom lip. It swelled up pretty impressively -- kinda looked like a small hotdog on my face. To this day it's still my sister's favorite picture of me.

"Hippocampus" is the scientific name for seahorse. Apparently when they looked at it, they thought it looked like one.

Yes. I believe that might have been creepy.

Why do humans do these things?
Why do they want to know all the gory details of the lives of others?

I am one of them. I must be. Did you see the fungus?
Those things are so beautiful. The music was nice, too.

I knew about that fungus. I thought it was a virus.
Or; A prion. Proion: That not living protein ball that causes Mad Cow Disease.
Mad Cow has a different name. Jacob Somebody. What's scary about that?

What is beautiful about that Fungus? I had never seen the mature Fruiting Bodies before. eeewww.
Fruiting Bodies. Eeewwweew. yuck. That is what happens to all bodies in some ways. Always.

Some people are so creeped out by the process, they want to skip it. They can rarely skip it for themselves.
I know. It's weird. They set the body on fire. It is not easy to burn a human body.

Hey! I don't burn bodies. People sometimes set each other on fire. Sometimes they set themselves on fire.
Sometimes they wait until the person is dead. Sometimes. Sometimes they do it as a Last Gift of Love.

Sometimes........ I went to school and learned some stuff. I learned some other stuff outside of school.
Outside of school I learned about the way the people of Tiland treated a bunch of Strangers, when one of the Strangers died.

The story was interesting to me. A woman, her sister and best friend, her daughter, her sister's daughter all were visiting with one another and enjoying The World. They were in Tiland.

They were European or American. I am not sure. One or the other. I can not remember what kind of an accent she had.
I do remember The Story. I did not get all the Good Stuff.

Her sister had a Heart Attack. An early Heart Attack.
The other women had gone down to breakfast.

She was right behind them. That happens sometimes.
A person might want to go poop without an audience or something.

Down stairs, the other women waited. They sent her daughter, to get her Mother.
Remember who these women are. One is not a first degree relative of the Dead Woman.

oh. At this point we have a Dead Woman in the story.
Her daughter returns to the table and says, "Auntie, My Mom's Dead."

Who knows what was said. Disbelief? All the rest of the stages of Death and Dying. E. Kubler-Ross.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kübler-Ross_model
I don't know how good that link is. I don't feel like reading it.

If you want to know. Read the book. It is a tiny little book. It packs a punch.
I was given direct orders about that book. "Read This Book Before You Return."

She went on to say, "I know you. You can not read this book in the rain."
I said, "OK." It's a little book. What was I yammering on about? oh.

In Tiland the people set her sister on fire.
As she told the story to me, the woman would get a far away look, sometimes.
That was her Sister and her best friend. Her Niece lost her Mother that day.

That woman's daughter. The niece of her Mothers sister. What did she lose?
She lost something. The Whole Family did not fall apart. The Niece's greatest loss was Everyone.

The People supported those women. That is what she said.
I can only imagine. They clung to one another.

Something The People did, helped. They did not know.
Those woman did not know what to do with a Dead Body.

What would you do with one?

She said they go back. Every year they go back, if they can.
It might be a very private thing. It might be where those women feel at home.

They lost one person there. They gained a bunch of 3rd degree relatives.
Math? Think of the one person's spirit. nah. Don't.

Inch Worm. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W0lQ0bdcjfY
Don't do the Math on it. Someone has done it.
The numbers can be beautiful. Do they do the creature justice?

Life By The Numbers. Keith Devon.
Candy for the mind.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j4OUg4U88-k
Life sanitized. Numbers are so clean. Not icky like a beetle eating a bee. icky.

What about those Fruiting Bodies. I liked the music. Those guys made that BBC film that way on purpose.

I had only known about what those ants do. Someone did a time lapse.
How did they do the Moth. How were they able to move the camera around that moth?
Have you ever seen moth with that in the field? I have. It looks like dust, to me.

They caught that fungus fruiting. I wonder. It takes hours to days for those things to fruit.
Have you ever seen them in the wild?

The Big Fungus are Great! Some are miles and miles from this side of the Thing to that side of the Thing.
That is what I heard. I don't know, if it is true or not.

The medium size ones are nice. Mushrooms and other fungus stuff.
Moss and Mushrooms go together quite well. Some are beautiful and some are funny.

Don't sit on them. They tend to be wet. If you leave a butt mark in a very nice stand of Shrooms next to the trail.
Someone might hunt you down and make Shroom Food of you.

Some people travel from near and far to see the Shrooms Bloom. It is a stupid thing to do. It rains and the light is weird.
It rains some more and the strangest things pop out of the ground and the trees (and ickk) even the moth turn to Shroom.

Ick. Nature. (shrug)
