Probably not. From what I've read and analyzed, a cure doesn't seem likely, at least till we understand the brain better. It would be tempting though, to not have to keep up a constant presence of mind, just to fit in and not disturb friends, family, coworkers, classmates, strangers, etc. or deal wi...

I've taken a few different versions of these tests, the outcome is usually INTP or INTJ, at nearly an equal rate.

I have been playing since the closed Beta, but I don't play constantly unless there is new content. I logged in today to pay respects at the Leonard Nimoy memorial they added.

I've been wanting to try Soylent since I heard about it, but the price and wait are what stop me. Right now shipping is 2-3 months if you're a new customer, and the price for a month's worth is almost 50% more than I usually spend in a month. It would probably more healthy than my current food sourc...

I agree, it is even worse that he then went on to become an Auror, which increases the likelihood the wand will be passed on instead of ceasing to be unusually powerful.

The book you're remembering is "Origami in Action : Paper Toys That Fly, Flap, Gobble, and Inflate" by Robert Lang (of langorigami.com ). Robert is one of my favorite origami designers.

I'm most sensitive to sound, then smell, touch, and vision. I can't stand loud places or certain sounds, especially when stressed. Some smells are heavenly, but others I cannot stand to be around. Touch is mostly limited to clothing, but as others have said, being wet/sticky is very uncomfortable. V...

I have to disagree (in reference to the original post). My view of a diagnosis is important to understand one's self and have services available when necessary. Social stigma is the only reason I can see as to not getting a diagnosis of any kind of mental or physical abnormality, which could affect ...

Possibly Black and White thinking (following a rule or criteria), the need for classifications to avoid cognitive dissonance. Could be fear of change as well, anxiety of possible disruption of routine or fear of loss of services or for some possibly a part of self-identity. To some it is insignifica...

I would say I am 75% Passive and 25% Active but Odd, based on the traits described. Maybe 50/50.

I averaged 2/5 and usually was about 6-10 off. I didn't try to actually count, but just guess an estimate.

Well, choice one would likely be full of insects or pests and the like if it were like Earth, and I dislike humidity, so that is out. Choice two is hot and dry, but the possible lack of food and water would make it hard to get by with even the basics. Choice three would have more food than choice tw...

I've had my head smashed into cinder block walls and lockers, had my guts squished to the point of having damage to my bowels, stuck in a barn loft for hours after the ladder was removed and hidden, locked in various rooms for long periods of time, had a cinder block thrown at my face, been pelted w...

I enjoy these as well. I had the original NES Final Fantasy monster poster pinned on my wall growing up. I have many books on various real and mythical creatures (World of Warcraft Atlases, J.K. Rowling's "Mythical Beasts and Where to Find Them", Element Encyclopedia of Magical Creatures, etc.) and ...
