Queen Elizabeth and John Noble look like the same person. Or at least related. Just was noticing their resemblances when I saw her on a Canadian $20 bill the other day. "Why does this remind me of the TV show 'Fringe'?"
Probably the same premise how most babies look the same, just at the other end of the spectrum.

I've just spent half a day building one of those adult lego sets with a couple of friends. I can't really believe how the whole experience easily smashed into the top ten best, most wholesome moments of my life, whatever the hell that says about someone. Just surprised at how much I resonated with the whole thing, since I was never really into legos when I was a kid, in the first place.

On the other hand, I could see how absolutely easy it would be to get addicted to this and eventually ending up onto less pleasant paths, especially considering just how much some of those sets cost.

What if life is just a simple programming code that translates to "Do not shut down"

check energy; check risk; check deterioration; check fear; check safe;

if energy < 15:
hunger.exe

if risk > 10:
run.exe

if risk < 9:
safe

if fear:
hide.exe; check risk

if safe:
check deterioration

if deterioration > 10:
die.exe

if deterioration < 9:
reproduce.exe

Adults need to remember to have fun too. : )

Something I try to frequently remind myself of, when things are getting too crazy or serious in life.

Why do cafeterias smell so bad in nursing homes? Why do nursing homes smell so bad? It’s not the part of the building because these people get to leave. It’s like some horrible smell of food rotting in a bucket of water.

Yeah, I remember that from when I was a little kid visiting my great grandmother.

Some quick online research says there’s some chemical called nonenal that only old people produce which creates the odor. Pretty sure calling it the smell of death is not too inappropriate.

I mean, a good amount of them are frail and don't bath too often... it's a sad situation.

This thread is for random thoughts that don’t deserve their own thread, but need to be asked.

For instance they say everything is like riding a bike, once you learn you can’t forget.

Is it possible that anybody ever forgot how to ride a bike?

Once you learn to read, is it possible to forget how? Can you suddenly go from literate to illiterate?

If your body is dirty and soap is clean do you get dirty from touching the soap or do you dirty the soap?
I think people have forgotten to read, but it is after a major brain injury.

Isn't the "hard" part of riding a bike just getting the balance down? I don't know how one forgets that, honestly.

I've been having a sort of mid life crisis lately and have been debating about either getting into Lego again or getting a motorcycle.

I really think I have the charisma to break a group out into spontaneous song and dance, but am terrified to try.

What would you do if all the female NeoGAF members rented out a hotel, congregated in the same hotel room, played this song, and danced slowly for the entire duration of the video without making eye contact and them slowly dispersed out the room one by one without saying a word to each other?

I once lent a friend a VHS porn tape in high school, and he watched one scene so often that it tore the tape in one particular spot. He spliced it back together with Scotch tape and now the best scene looks pretty bad. That has to be the highest compliment a scene could ever receive.
