Well, hurricane Irene is passing through the Eastern seaboard and I’m safe and sound in Germany. They say that we should ‘count our blessings’ I’m trying to interpret this as being one.
Today I read about a 6 fingered & toed guy. I saw photos. What’s so great about it, is that it is very obviously not a birth defect at all and his feet are the same way. In truth, I have heard of this before, but hadn’t seen anyone like that. It has been rather common in some times and places in history. Of course, if the majority are like that: if they invented the math it would be different because we can get further counting using the hands.
Speaking of variations of normal amongst human beings: apparently, I am eminently typical in many ways, but I got an extra lumbar and extra “IQ” points. Unfortunately, extra IQ doesn’t come with a guaranteed extra “”EQ” but does come with strong feelings, but there is some potential for it. Anyways, both are also rare but known to exist. The extra lumbar actually makes it harder for me to balance well and maybe that’s why I don’t always like to sit still that much. I don’t know of any benefits of it. Luckily, it also doesn’t cause any real problems.
So, recently I have been watching episodes of the Justice League with my son and noticing that whoever wrote the episode might have been paid well and that a TV show is a respectable credit for a writer.
