    they are mapping every cell now, to learn that stuff

    No I havent tbh - but I will have to look it up cause it really sounds interesting although I did know that they have been mapping cells and dna and even in some cases making copyright of their finds

    annd I have read that they still dont know that they dont know what makes a dog a dog and a cat a cat and a human a human (- You know the whole essence thing - It sometimes even gets a bit esoteric )

    But also tbh the detail question never occurred to me until now

    "they did the human genome project, but never worked out why for eg a blue eye gene doesn't just grow a giant blue eye instead of two eyes appropriately placed in a human. Or how toe nail know to be toe nails out of the same building blocks as pubes etc"

    Am preparing for an unexpected (and am not sure if unwanted yet - esp cause I am guarded about my space and have never met this person and have only spoken once and once more for him to say he is coming down) house guest tomorrow soooo

    as soon as I get the chance in the next hopefully few days I will get onto it - simply cause it is right up my ally to read up on

    Thanks!
    I like learning new random stuff !

    I think the official title is cell atlas project. Google will put boring implications for cancer research up front, but you are accustomed to searching for more esoteric fun stuff

    so i watched one of these youtube "what your body says about you" vids and you learn something new everyday.

    Im an old greek lady thats self reliant, has a big heart and shows restraint.
    I have a sensitive soul, finds it difficult to develop relationships, is disorganized but shows logic through the chaos.

    Im relatively healthy, but i have an unbalanced diet, i suffer from a hormonal imbalance (kinda figures not a girl right) and I may or may not be having a stroke.

    But its ok the sleeping position on the bed with my dog indicates we are a loving couple but respect each other boundaries.

    Today I randomly learned that

    Moths Rub Their Genitals Together To Jam Bat Sonar
    https://www.gizmodo.com.au/2015/05/m...jam-bat-sonar/


    Scientists Create the First Automated 'Biological Teleporter (well yeah it probaly can be used as a bio weapon but it is potentially so much more too!)
    https://www.outerplaces.com/science/...hetic-genomics



    There are several crowdfunding sites that only fund science experiments ( I had no idea bc I had never thought about it) - Here is a couple of em
    https://experiment.com/

    https://crowd.science/


    Some people worry about garbage being dumped on their property - in nz whole buildings get dumped on other peoples property
    Entire house fly-tipped in New Zealand - BBC News

    Have a smartphone addiction? NP! These substitute phones could be your answer!
    https://www.engadget.com/2017/11/27/...one-addiction/


    Amputees can learn to control a robotic arm with their minds
    https://www.sciencedaily.com/release...1127135811.htm

    and there is a new experimental therapy called avatar therapy being trialed for those with auditory hallucinations (I just find it interesting how technology is now being fused with 'traditional' type therapies and where it might go from here )
    'Avatar therapy' aims to help those who hear voices - CNN


    Might be boring for some - but it is what I learned today

    Have a good one!

    The random thing I learned is...Beer nuts are not made from Beer. And they don't come under the classification as 'fruit' either. "5 a day". My posterior!
    I asked my Mum one day "Where do babies come from?" She said "A dog bite son." I found out later, I had a Cynophobic childhood. She thought I'd said Rabies.

    Killed the nails before they killed me. 10/02/15 Thanks immensely to AVFers!
