Birds and the bees

We all know “the birds and the bees” is another term for sex, but what does it all mean? What could birds and bees (things that seemingly have hardly any relation) have to do with sex? They certainly don’t have sex with each other. You don’t see any super bee-birds flying around eating seeds and making honey. Could it possibly have something to do with bees stinging? When they sting they “penetrate” whatever they are stinging… but even so that still doesn’t explain the birds half of it. It probably isn’t very pleasant when birds and bees get together… perhaps the term was created by someone that doesn’t enjoy sex? In the end, I have no real solid explanation that can make sense of this.

If you were a Sponge

If you were a sponge, would you like or dislike water?

As I started doing the dishes, I put the sponge under the water in preperation. I started thinking it looked all dryed out and miserable before it soaked up the water.

If you were an average dish sponge that could feel, what do you think would be more comfortable? Dried out and stiff or soaked full of water?

It’s possible you would you feel like you were drowning with all that water, like  “damn this cursed skin of mine! Always absorbing so much water! If only it would repel it like normal people I would be so much happier”. With this comes a sturdy pose uneasily changed by others.

Or would you feel better off soaked in water. “I’m Sooo thirsty! Need water…  If I just had some water to absorb that would feel so great!” Even though once you absorb water you become soft and flimsy realizing you are helpless to stay in any pose you wish with a simple squeeze or push.

Which would you choose?

Can birds whisper?

You know how when your trying to be hush hush about something, you tell people a secret in a whisper. We seem to have great control of the volume of our voices and use it accordingly. Do other animals have this same control? I feel like dogs, horses etc might be able to but I started wondering about birds. I can’t think of a time where their chirps were any quieter than the usual loud pitch they do. Do they have the vocal ability to chirp quieter? Maybe they are able to, but have no reason to. If they do I wish they would whisper in the early mornings, rather than waking me up at the crack of dawn!

bird whispering... psst!

Connected by nature

Are we able to tell surrounding events even if we aren’t able to physically see or encounter them? Perhaps we tap into a resource every now and again that we don’t actually realize exists. Something connecting our minds to the physical world in a way other than our 6 senses. Maybe there is more to our planets atmosphere than we know and somehow that connects us. What if it connected every living thing on it, and we tap into this connection unknowingly at times. How many times have you predicted something that has happened or felt someone was in trouble with no real (or understandable) way of truly knowing. Later you find out your feeling was right?

Below is just one of many examples that have happened to me:

Just the other day I was out to dinner with my brother and mom when I had a vision/day dream of a police car, broken glass and yelling in a parking garage. I thought nothing of it and rejoined the conversation my brother and mom were having. When it was time to leave we each head our separate ways walking to our cars. My brother and I both had our cars out in the parking lot while my moms was in the garage. When I got into my car I suddenly realized the daydream I had was in the garage and made me nervous.

I immediately called my mom on the phone to be sure everything was okay. She replied yes and as she continued on she described seeing a police car pulled up next to a car that had its window broken into.

Personality worth saving

I feel that people are who they are as a direct result of their memories. I’ll bet that the people out there that start saying “I don’t like who I”m becoming” are people who don’t take a minute to sit back and reminisce about the past every now and again. Without memories you only are learning from new experiences and if you surround yourself with bad experiences and don’t think about the past, you may find yourself to be a person you never thought you’d be.

You learn from your mistakes and whether you know it or not, absorb your surrounding personalities in one form or another. Without memories your brain can only react based on current events and I’ve personally found bad situations are much easier to find with age. If we don’t think back to when life was (seemingly) much simpler, you might start to think the world is a messed up place and change your personality according to how you perceive the world. So stop and reminisce about the past every once in a while… it just may save you.

Invisible yet visible light

I got to thinking about light while driving in the fog yesterday. I realized fog reveals the beam of light (the headlights send out) very well. Dust and other particles/objects have the same effect too.  I got to wondering, why don’t you see the beam of light unless it comes into contact with something? Think about it, the only time we see light is when its actually touching an object. Light is something that exists to us only because of physical objects. We would never know it was there if there were no physical objects for it to touch. Light seems to be something physical but only seen as a direct result from other things, and on the other hand things are only seen as a direct result from light touching it.

Memory in weather

I noticed that I have a much better or worse memory of a particular day based solely on what type of weather we are having. This is regardless of the events that transpire that day. I’ll remember things from as simple as the walk to my car to the lunch I ate that afternoon, or where I went and at what time etc. For me I have a much better memory in gloomy weather (where the sky has all clouds but no rain), damp and a cooler temperature (like 35-40 degrees Fahrenheit). As opposed to a hot summer day with the sun out and clear sky where I don’t seem to remember much at all. Not only do I seem to remember better during these days but I usually have a “good day” where I feel as though I’m more aware of everything around me, I’m in a good mood and I seem to think more clearly.

I’m thinking that I possibly remember less on hot days with the sun out because there are so many more distractions that keep me from being focused on the events. Something like trying to keep the sun out of my eyes, or trying not to stay in the sun too long to avoid sunburn, the fact that its insanely hot and I’m trying to keep cool.

Is this true for anyone else? A specific type of weather makes it seemingly easier for you to retain information or more aware of your surroundings?

Gloomy day
