    If Donald Trump selects Judge Napolitano as the next Supreme Court Justice, then I'll...nah, it'll never happen. Trump is too much of an authoritarian to nominate a judge like Napolitano.

    You can try abdominal massages to encourage things. There are videos on it, but basically you would be applying gentle, external, sequential pressure to your lower belly. It can be effective pretty quickly.

    As Suz says, a number of things can warp the "out" part. Hormones, stress, medications, disease...anything that messes with your chemistry.

    Wow, great advice. Thanks and duly noted. My plan is just what you said, 3-4 nuts a day. I am aware of the possibility of danger, but it seems pretty easily avoidable. I'll also take mold into consideration. One thing that seems a bit strange to me is that beef seems to have a moderate amount of Selenium, and I usually eat some beef every day, so I wonder how I could be deficient in it. I suppose it's possible that I simply have a predisposition and never eat Brazil nuts or sea food, which is higher than beef in Selenium, so I could still be deficient, but I was hoping to find a clearer sign in order to assure me that this is actually going to have an effect. I'm wondering what kind of effects other people have noticed. I assume you did this, since you note that I will see results. Have you taken Brazil nuts as a form of nutrition, and if so, how did it work for you and why were you taking them?

    Of course you haven't said if it is a good thing or a bad thing, there is no need to state the obvious. Any time money can be taken from the people and given to the government it is a good thing... right? Clearly it is a tiny sacrifice for the individual cog, while machine becomes more powerful and benevolent. Is there ever a time that giving more money to the government is a bad thing?

    I really don't know. Sounds different from mine. Mine weren't brown. They were just little bumps and looked "seedy". They were never any bigger than about half a dime in diameter, usually about 1/4 the size of a dime. And no, I never noticed any on the feet.

    Just little lumps of skin that would always appear on my hands. Some on my palms, some on my fingers. Usually very small. I tried to treat them cryogenically once, but they always grew back... then after college I just realized one day that I didn't have them anymore and I haven't seen a single wart since. I think I only ever had about 5 or 6 at one time.

    I'm never on anyone's list. :( I blame my relatively low post count and not starting enough thought-provoking threads. Also, I have met a few people from here, most notably Theo and LE (on Skype) and ChristianAnarchist (in real life). I don't really have a list of people I would like to meet. I'm not that curious about the lives of other forum members, so I guess I can't really complain about not being on anyone's list. Suzanimal would be interesting to meet, I'm sure. Especially if she was single. :p A quote comes to mind: Great minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, small minds discuss people.

    Thanks. Yes, I'm hoping it's a vitamin deficiency and that I can cure it with vitamins. If it's something weirder, then that would just rock my paradigm of how the world works because it just doesn't make sense to suddenly develop a weird disease and then there's nothing you can do to reverse it. Like a ticking time bomb it just starts randomly and stays that way forever... I really don't buy into that, although I know the popular mantra of allopathic medicine is "there is no cure", which is really disturbing and defies all common sense. If it was congenital, then maybe I could understand that, but developing something in your 20s that never goes away just doesn't make sense, unless it's a mental disorder, which is a lot more complicated because it involves consciousness as well as physiology.

    Yeah, my globus sensation (lump in the throat) has been almost constant for 6 years ever since September 2010. I can almost nail it down to the day it started and it's been over 6 years since then. I also thought I had asthma and was on inhalers, but I'm also not so sure that was ever the problem. I used to have these weird heart palpatations when I was doing strenuous workouts. I could feel the "butterfly" feeling in my heart accompanied by weakness and it would come on kind of like an asthma attack, causing me to feel really strong heart palpatations and become fatigued easily. What's weird is I was usually fine. Once in a while, though, I would have a workout where I would experience this and I just kind of had to mark it off as a bad workout. Other days I felt strong and heart was beating normally. I just assumed it was asthma because I would get out of breath, but that doesn't seem to explain the heart weirdness. I took a natural breathing supplement and that usually helped me avoid situations like that, but that still doesn't mean it was asthma. I had several ways of dealing with asthma and allergies, natural remedies that worked wonders, but they were only temporary solutions to what seemed to be more of a theme with me, so I'm guessing I was just plastering over a more long-term deficiency in some vitamin or mineral. Like I said, though, I can almost tell you the exact day it started, both the globus sensation and the muscle myotonia. It got progressively worse over the course of 2 or 3 months and then it's been like that ever since. The heart palpatations started quite a while before that, so they may be connected in some ways as I've heard myotonia has some effect on your heart as well, which makes sense because even now I absolutely need at least 8 hours of sleep or I'm very fatigued during the day. It's been a constant thing with me ever since my teenage years, struggling with allergies, asthma and finally myotonia. The allergies don't seem to be a problem anymore. I rarely get hay fever anymore, although I'm noticeably allergic to cats. Usually if I feel like my allergies are flaring up now, it means I have a cold and what used to work on hay fever doesn't help with colds, so I've concluded I no longer have hay fever. It seems I've mysteriously grown out of some things, including the hay fever as well as the warts I used to get on my hands, which I had all the time starting in high school and they all mysteriously disappeared after college. I'm mostly just musing here, but hopefully you can find some useful information in there. The lump in my throat isn't just in intense situations. Sometimes it's worse than others and it will annoy me for a few weeks then I will feel ok for a few weeks and then it will come back for a few days, go for a few days, etc. It's never completely gone. I can usually tell it's still there, but there are certain times it bothers me more than others, but the timing doesn't seem to have any rhyme or reason to it.

    I've decided to try some Selenium. Has anyone had experience with this? Does it help? I'm just going to eat some Brazil nuts since those are supposed to have all the selenium anyone needs. I've heard of Dr. Wallach and apparently he has some expensive supplement program, but I'm not sure why that would be necessary.

    Vending machines with SNAP cards ... that brings up its own set of issues. They'd also be even easier to victimize than ATMs. See someone getting their SNAP card out at the beginning of the month? Nab it. Use it. Resell. Those cameras wouldn't last long. Those basics would also need to be restocked a LOT, and freshness would become an issue. I also personally would not want eggs spat out by a vending machine.

    "Myotonia" is a specific physical thing. It sounds like they've determined it has a genetic component (and given what your family has said after the fact, there you go). It might have been triggered by some kind of hormonal or chemical change. Unfortunately, we're at the mercy of our familial historians to figure out a lot of what's wrong. Best of luck with this.

    No, but that seems to be a vague description that doesn't really pinpoint my symptoms like what I saw in the videos did. When I saw it, I knew it was exactly what I had because I had experienced what I was seeing and I could distinguish every little detail about what they were going through. So thanks for the input, but I think I've found the problem and it doesn't merely have to do with "reduced stamina". There are more videos out there of how muscles in the face, hands, legs, etc freeze up when contracted and cannot relax. I've experienced these symptoms in all the same places and what I see in these videos is a mirror reflection of what I've been going through.

    That's me, too. Strangely it's the same with exercise. Once I'm out hiking/walking/whatever, I can keep going at a pretty good pace for a really long time without getting tired or sore or anything. I have stamina for hiking... and eating. Dammit.

    I did see that. This is the first time I've ever even heard of this condition despite having it for so long, so I'm still checking things out. This opens up a whole new explanatory framework that I never had access to even though it was right at my fingertips. All I had to do was ask. Thanks for the info, I will check into Selenium and let you know what happens.

    The last points are interesting. The biggest deficits in food deserts tend to be the fresh foods, so I wonder how much of that Amazon's food services can send them (for free, I assume).

    Any "rights"-related organization evolves into this over time. Once you've achieved your short term goals, or can't progress further, there's nothing left to do. That means you have to add goals or change the ones you still have hanging around. If you admit that there's nothing left to do, you have no reason to exist at the level of popularity/notoriety that you enjoyed earlier. You'd be out of a job! So once women were integrated into the workforce and things got much more "gender neutral," NOW started becoming more and more insane with their stated goals. "Gay rights" groups got a lot of things normalized, but that would have been the end of the road, so now they are busy finding discrimination in every possible corner and painting it as the ultimate evil, while constantly adding more letters (remember when it was just LGBT? then LGBTQ? now it's up to LGBTIQ or LGBTQ+). Well, the same is true of "civil rights" groups (NAACP, etc.). In order to bring in money, you have to stay relevant, which means you have to be oppressed and offended.

    3. You are free to do so, just as I am free to put you on ignore or laugh at your inability to understand English. That's not bragging. I am just very confident in the fact that my posts follow the rules of the English language in a very coherent manner. Until you start citing real, tangible errors in my grammar or spelling, I tend to think you are simply "annoyed", as it were.
  4. 1. I'm only annoyed, not "butt-hurt," by you being obnoxious to others who do not deserve it.
    2. If you have to brag about how smart you are or your "rank" in society, that's just sad.
    3. I will point out your errors and incoherent rants, try to remember that's what you want.

    Good luck. Good bye. Try to be a better person to others.
  5. You don't have any business being rude and correcting grammar when you make bigger mistakes.

    Perhaps you ought to read back through your posts and, if you are as smart as you think, you'll recognize how incoherent you can be. Sometimes you sound like you're on drugs, so perhaps you're "well-spoken" to your fellow druggies?

    Why you insist that it's right to be rude to someone who rarely posts is beyond me. There's no reason for me to be "butt-hurt?" It's not like you corrected my grammar or typo. Try making sense.

    Can't wait until you're out in the real world and can't figure out why people don't like you, 95% are smarter than you and probably won't hire you--I think that's what it'll take for you to start treating other people decently. If not, hope you're rich.
