Cortana, Siri, Alexa, Google Home, Roku streaming devices, Smart TVs. Anything remotely recent that can take a voice command, you will want to turn off those settings. You will also want to look up privacy settings and disable any data collection you can find. A lot of Apps will also feed off this i...

heaven is the right planet for me, i've been blessed with some night-time visits now and then :D What is heaven to you? I don't usually hear from other people. Whenever I try to imagine it from the descriptions of various clergy, I think of huge gaudy golden cities with trillions of dead people. Th...

The first thing you should consider about conspiracy theory type things, is the reliability of the source. Look for something from a reliably unbiased and accurate journalist network; Associated Press and Reuters have the best track record, but NPR, ABC, PBS, CBS, BBC are also decent. Personal accou...

To me, reincarnation makes more sense than either the afterlife as a place or just disappearing into the void; conservation of matter and all. Wouldn't mind to visit a different world, maybe I can find the "Right Planet"? :lol:

Games are designed to elicit an emotional response, it is part of their purpose. When you play chess for instance, it is a competition; someone will win and someone will lose. You can experience different emotions from a loss, so anger can be one such expectation. From another viewpoint, family stuf...

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.
