Life in general

Who knows maybe the world is not real?! It is true. Life and existence is nothing more than people moving extremities (time and place) and distortion of airwaves (communication).

What more to life than movement, energy and sound? Life is so simple yet people make it out to be complicated. Just move your arms and legs… eat, drink, and distort the airwaves… done… u are living

Chemicals

So what’s the deal with all this deception! Seriously Think about this. You look at a bottle of say Dole grape juice. It says 100% Juice all over the bottle. Okay cool, but wait look at the “contains” section… shouldn’t that say just “grape juice” and nothing more?? It doesn’t. It says grape juice from concentrate, water and juice concentrates, “natural flavors”, “malic acid”, “ascorbic acid”. That doesn’t seem much like 100% juice to me.

Do I just not understand how a percentage works? Are they saying that this bottle is a special 120% bottle or something? Now to clarify something else. Natural Flavors aren’t at all what they sound like. In fact the term “natural flavors” covers a wide variety of things. The technical definition by law is:

“The term natural flavor or natural flavoring means the essential oil, oleoresin, essence or extractive, protein hydrolysate, distillate, or any product of roasting, heating or enzymolysis, which contains the flavoring constituents derived from a spice, fruit or fruit juice, vegetable or vegetable juice, edible yeast, herb, bark, bud, root, leaf or similar plant material, meat, seafood, poultry, eggs, dairy products, or fermentation products thereof, whose significant function in food is flavoring rather than nutritional.”

Which is basically anything really. So my point is how are they allowed to say its 100% juice when it is obviously not 100% juice??

Cold

Why is it that cold seems to compress your body yet we are made up mostly of water? On cold days you ever notice how you feel slimmer, your arms tighten up a bit, in your hands you notice your knuckles more. Yet when you freeze water it expands. I think according to the properties of water we should all expand in cold weather.

Website extenions

The internet is a vast place. So vast in fact they have created many endings to sites. (.com, .net, .org, .uk, .fm and so on) each is supposed to be designed for the type of website. Currently people do not strictly follow these rules but that’s beside the point. I think they left out some important endings. Some examples of left out domain extensions would be “.omg”. This would be used for websites that just blow your mind. Imagine that. “www.ferrari.omg” I mean seriously it’s a pretty sweet car witch deserves an .omg website. Or www.darklemonade.omg… simply because it’s just an amazing site. That one could even maybe use an explanation point “.omg!”.

Better yet, a .wtf site. That would be good for sites like “www.SheKeyedMyCar.wtf” or “www.TheCatPeedAgain.wtf”. Other extensions could include any of the hip text-messaging slang used today. These site extensions may someday be needed.

*disclaimer, I do not really believe this should be done, lol*

water in the dumps

Have you ever bought a drink, drink “most” of it, put the cap back on and toss it out? I do all the time, last was the other day when I threw out 1/4 bottle of unsweetened iced tea. Then I got to thinking… if I put the cap on this thing will the water inside evaporate from the garbage dump? Or will it just stay inside the bottle for all of eternity!? If so how many people do the same thing and does it effect the environment? Even the small amounts left in the bottle every time you throw it out.

If my memory serves me correctly, if I find an old water bottle in my car that has been there for who knows how long (a year maybe) the water is always still inside like it tried to evaporate out (misty all around the top) but couldn’t. So if everyone is doing this are we wasting water?? Not like we don’t have enough on our planet but what if eventually, a huge portion of earth’s water get’s stuck in garbage dumps. I think we need to research the effect this trapped water has.

Taste in general

How come some people like certain things and some don’t. Even if they grow up in a same situation, like siblings you would expect them to like the same things but that’s not exactly the case. If you ask me… if you follow the rules of all the other senses your brain should like the taste of good foods and dislike food that is bad for you. Your sense of touch tells you not to like the feeling of your had getting burned on the burner, your sense of hearing tells you to run when you hear something that sounds dangerous… so why doesn’t the sense of taste protect you from all these chemicals we are eating with our foods and make them taste terrible?? They most certainly aren’t good for you, yet they are sooo delicious! It seems to be the one sense that works against the body.

So exactly what is taste? The brain is an amazing thing. When you taste it’s pretty hard to actually think about the feeling / signals your brain is receiving. You know its there, but how? It’s just something on your tongue that tells your brain it tastes like this. But actually sit there and think about where is this stored? Because if you’re thinking about it, it’s in your brain but the food is in your mouth. When I stop to think about it I just get this blank feeling… where exactly is this feeling of deliciousness? Is it in your mouth or in your head? And what determines if you like it or not?

How Animals think (in particular Cats & dogs)

When you think… how are you actually thinking? In the language you speak of course. Whether it’s English, Spanish, German, whatever. That’s how you are thinking, maybe about that really fun time at that one party, or a romantic moment with someone. Now I’m by no means an expert on animals, but it seems to me that when a dog is barking or a cat meows they aren’t really communicating. I think that this is more of a means of drawing attention rather than a form of communication.
