You live, you learn

There doesn´t go a day without us learning things, about the world, about other people or about ourselves. Asha´mans have to learn quick, or they get burnt out, die or get captured by those red sisters. 

 

So this is a thread about random things that we have learned during the day. 

 

 

 

Well, my morning has just started so I haven´t really learned anything new yet but yesterday I learned that sloth, anteaters and armadillos belongs to the same family.

I learned that dry gelatine feels and tastes like plastic, and becomes flexible if you put it in water (though it still tastes like plastic). Then again, it's kind of plastic, so it makes sense.

Today I learned that we have a minister that I had never heard of before. Maybe it would be a good idea to watch the news more often?

Yesterday I learned that quokkas exist, and that they are literally the cutest animals in existence.

Today I have learned that the health center has too many patients right now, which means that it will take a long time for me to see a doctor. :(

I´ve never heard of that animal before. Now I have learned something fun as well. Thank you!

I don't watch the news because it tends to make me mad with how biased it is (at least in the Netherlands)...

Today I learned that in 1.3 million years a star will pass at 0.27 lightyears or less, which will most likely mean that there's a lot of comets and stuff coming to the center of the solar system, meaning that something like 10 visible comets per year wouldn't be unlikely.

 

Which, of course, also increases the chance of one of them hitting the Earth. Good thing it's still 1300000 years away.

Today I also learned that a ninth planet of the size of Neptune cannot be ruled out and is even likely, from observations made on several dwarf planets.

 

Yes, I've been on a wiki walk.

I also learned that there's not a single known object that orbits the sun that is at all points closer to it than Mercury.

Today I learned that my niece has ADHD. I'm happy that she got the diagnosis so that she can get better help.

That basically means that she's somewhere on the social spectrum that isn't within 25% of average.

Agreed.  I was told I had this acronym too.  Haven't taken drugs for it, doing just fine.  I say my personality is just different, excitable, and...Oh a squirrel!  Imma chase it!

That's indeed basically everything.

 

Also, now I'm going to take my attention away from Squirrel Dragonmount and focus on quantummechanics again because I have to get a sufficient mark in a few weeks.

In her case it means a lot since she is not doing well. She is intelligent, school is easy for her. But it's very hard for her to interact with others since she can't control her impulses. But it will get better now.

 

Today I have learned that it's just impossible to beat the Norwegians. :( Hopefully it changes tomorrow.

Today I learned that people with no neuropsych training think they can write off a medical diagnosis because they don't understand what it means.

 

Oh wait I knew that already.

 

Today I learned that watching people clean the house can be kind of tiring,

Nice burn Mrs. Gill.  I think i got mislabeled ADHD because I was a bit of a handful when I was a kid.  I think there has just been a lot of misdiagnosisses in America these days for that and ADD.  From what Niniel said it sounds like a proper diagnosis, I just hope they don't just throw drugs at the poor girl but give her some good counseling.  My wife has a masters in counseling and is a firm believer that I got misdiagnosed, she says I'm just difficult.  :tongue:

 

To stick with the theme of the thread, I learned that there really can be too much snow.  Something I never, ever thought I would ever say.

It'll get better. It's a lot of learning, but in the end there's only that much more to be proud of.

 

I mean, I don't know if you guys remember back when I joined here?

To be fair though Cindy, you can't just say I don't know anything about it, considering I've been living with autism my whole life. I know very well what challenges I bring, but I also know that it's basically part of the social spectrum, just so far away from the center that people want to put a label on you. (and if you don't think my word is enough, the expert that's helped me a lot agreed with me that this was basically the case)

Today I learned that glueing one picture in a notebook can take 20 minutes. I also learned that 10th graders don't know which way a map of the UK should be, even though it has numbers on it.

lol sorry the burn was aimed elsewhere. Stuff like medical diagnoses are a big part of my job so I get fussy about them,

    • In what sense are we giving our country away?
    • Yes but there is opening yourself to channel and then there is a quick unintentional use.  If you notice before Rand became a channeler, fully aware of what he was doing and willing try to embrace the power, all you get are the side effects from channeling (the taking chances etc,,) but not the filth feeling.  After book 1, when the using the power and the side effects happened near the same time, all he gets is the filth.  The difference is he knows he can channel and needs to embrace the source to channel.  Just like the women who are starting to channel never seem to notice the warmth of touching the female half until they survive the side effects and become aware what they are doing.  A wilder like Nyn, had she stayed in the Two Rivers, never would of felt the feeling of opening herself to the source since she had built up a block, so it might have to do with you have to open yourself up to the power to feel the good or bad.     In one of Rand's lives in book 2 I believe he was a member of the Queen's guards and was lucky, he thought later he understood why but he didn't care.  He was suffering from touching the male half but was basicly a wilder and it was never said he was feeling the filth.  So I think a lot has to do with someone who channels but doesn't really know it or is never trained how to do it aren't fully opening themselves up enough to feel the filth or warmth.  They are incapable of doing anything more then a quick touch of the surface.   It's possible Rand would of started to feel nausea when he accidently channeled and not probably not understand why.  But there seems to be a difference between inadvertently channeling and intentionally channeling.
