I have now reaserched the glycoproteins in every cell. Now all I have to do is find the DNA sequences for each protein. That should be easy since they are all online.

A replacement for the Myers-Briggs? by VictoryI on February 18th, 2012, 8:01 am
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is wildly popular personality test. Problem is its pseudoscience.

A major premise of the Type model is that only one of the 16 Types best describes each person — the Type to which you are born will be the one you take to your grave. We may adjust our behaviors over time — or at a party versus a funeral — but our personal Type remains the same for life.

however about half of people will retest as a different type after four week (1). It was with that in mind that my curiosity was perked when I read about the Holland code test, which has a much higher test-retest validity (2). After taking the test I am not convinced I have found a replacement MBTI though. I scored a somewhat contradictory result.

It said my RIASEC marker, was IAE (Investigative, Artistic, Entrepreneurial) but i...

Tertian Ague - The Royal fit by toucana on July 7th, 2012, 3:00 pm
Not long ago a chance remark overheard in a BBC Radio 4 history program sent me to the computer to check a detail on the reign of King James I of England (James VI of Scotland), the first monarch of the Stuart dynasty and the only son of Mary Queen of Scots. Try as I might, I couldn't remember his exact dates, nor the circumstances of his death either, even though I had once studied the period in detail at school.

I soon discovered that James I had died at the age of 59 in 1625. The surprise was that one contributory factor in his demise was described as 'tertian ague'. This was a wholly unfamiliar term, what on earth could it be ? An ague I knew was a type of shivering fit associated with a fever, it comes from the Latin 'acuta febris' - (acute fever). I recalled reading of Sir Walter Raleigh defiantly puffing his pipe on Tower Hill and saying "It is the hour of the day when my ague comes upon me..."

So, a fever fit that appeared with clockwork regularity...

LOVE AND LUST AND AMELIA FOX: Not so epically egregious….. by RonPrice on August 18th, 2012, 12:04 am
I wish you well, Amelia Fox(1974- ), in the remaining two years of your young adulthood(1994-2014), your middle age(2014-2034) and late adulthood(2034-54)---as well as old-age(2054- ), if you last that long. There is, of course, no reason you should not last barring those slings and arrows which you must avoid if they fall into the category of severely outrageous fortune.

After a student-working life of half a century myself, 1949-1999, during which I had my share of the fantasy-erotic, you came into my life as your career unfolded in the final years of my own career(1996-2004) and the first years of my retirement: 2005 to 2012. I was able to continue that romantic fantasy with the erotic thanks to you and to many others who fill the electronic media these days. I'm sure you have served this role for millions of men.

Good luck to you, Amelia, as you continue your own checkered romantic-erotic life. I wrote the above after watching Amelia Fox: (i) in Consuming Passion,...
