Who's Elvis Priestly? Did he sing 'You ain't nothin' but an oxygen molecule?'Walking down the street and seeing and meeting Elvis Priestly asking for directions. or not
Butter churn :rofl: Gotta love butter.Who's Elvis Priestly? Did he sing 'You ain't nothin' but an oxygen molecule?'
My biggest fear is that the Amish Mafia will take over Las Vegas someday and turn the Strip into one big illegal butter churn.
The study was from over 20 years ago.This seems to be a false dichotomy to me. Can you cite this study? How does one determine whether or not one's brain requires outside stimulation or not? Is there not a continuum of brain response to stimulation?
Why Do People Crave the Experience? - New York TimesThat kind of exhiliration is particularly appealing to a personality type, aptly known as ''thrill-seekers,'' people who have been studied by Frank Farley, a psychologist at the University of Wisconsin. People who are high in that trait, Dr. Farley said, ''seek variety, novelty, intensity and risk.''
One theory holds that the brains of thrill-seekers are usually at a lower level of arousal compared with most other people.

Researchers at the University of Michigan, led by Daniel Weissman, studied the interactions that occur between multiple areas of the brain when boredom sets in, and discovered that, as attention fades, so does the intensity at which several nervous centers communicate.
True, same as my imagination. I used to be afraid that there might probably be a big monster's hand from below grabbing my butt while I was sitting on the toilet bowl.:rofl::rofl::rofl:
I remember I was like this when I was little, I fear that something hidden underneath the bed might chop them off or something. :p
I do have some fear of driving through intersections - especially the ones that have already made the news because of a traffic fatality caused by someone running the red light.Flying doesn't bother me near as much as driving on highways where you're at the mercy of 100's of morons.
Most of my worst fear comes from watching russian dash cam videos. And a little bit from experience driving on the freeways with impatient people or, driving 600 miles south through a snowstorm in Alaska once, there was an abandoned car off the road every 50 miles, probably 4 or 5 cases of full emergency crew at the site of an accident along the whole trip. Just living in the city, you can sometimes hear sirens going all night on the first freeze as the newcomers learn to adjust their stopping expectations to a reduced coefficient of friction.I do have some fear of driving through intersections - especially the ones that have already made the news because of a traffic fatality caused by someone running the red light.
Just the fact that I remember the news stories about particular intersections for years, or remember the tree that used to be on that street before an SUV killed it, etc, is probably slightly irrational. I certainly don't remember the murder stories that long.
Slightly off-topic: You ever notice how in movies, drivers are so afraid of collisions with motorcycles that they'll swerve into other cars to avoid them; yet they almost never see a truck coming and will fearlessly drive right in front of it?
