Cows moo with regional accents.

"In small populations such as herds you would encounter identifiable dialectical variations which are most affected by the immediate peer group," explains one UK professor in an article for BBC News. In other words: You can take the cow out of Jersey…

 

Lobsters communicate with their bladders.

Lobsters have bladders on either side of their heads, so they communicate by urinating at each other. If they want another lobster to know that they're happy or sad or angry or interested in a relationship, they say it with pee!

One of the earliest known vacuum cleaners was so large that it had to be hauled from house to house via a horse-drawn carriage. Its giant hoses were popped through the windows of customers, and a gas-powered motor generated the suction that pulled the dirt and debris into a glass container where onlookers could gawk at the volume of filth coming from their neighbors' homes.

A certain amount of blood can replace an egg in baking, I think.

Cool.   I'd heard that people did this, but wasn't sure if it was for real.

I have a really vague memory from the 50's, when I was very little, of riding on my mother's Hoover whilst she was vacuming the rug.  It had a headlight.  She had that thing forever.

Sounds like a Hoover Senior model, although I believe you had different names over there :) . Here those headlight models were advertised as Dirtsearcher. That 1987 model on the left of my photo is fitted with a Dirtsearcher lamp to a standard Hoover Junior.

 

Its kinda sad, but when covid happened and we went into lockdown, people kept giving them to me as I like to tinker and get them working. They areally arent useful at all as these have beater bars for carpets and I dont have any carpet in my house, but I like them and cant explain why?

Possibly a 612 model... looks like a comfy seat for a small child :)

I too collect vacuum cleaners as a hobby.  Here are some of my Hoover Junior machines, dating from 1935 to the 1980s.

      While I haven't been out of school nearly that long. This spring is 18 years. I come from a town of 1000 people. My class only had like 23 people in it. We are also the last class from the school to graduate as they joined with another school down the road.    Here is where It gets weird. My class was the only one in 70 or so years of them being around. That had the first gay person, and since I've come out of the closet last year. The only trans person.

      I was on Mylan for my last prescription fill. Before that was Alora.  The Mylan was nice and tiny compared to what I have now.   Kymmie

      Jeanette, since you are speaking about her in relation to your own experience, it's fine to mention her by name.  @Charlize is, as usual, absolutely correct.   Carolyn Marie

      Heh! You have that right. I am continually amazed at the instant understanding and patience of people when I point at my throat and shake my head while motioning "I can't speak".   Give me a couple of hours, I'll write up a comprehensive review of my experience at Haben's clinic. I should do this all in MS Word and save them. My previous was lost in the server crash.

      I hope you are doing well, and guess you’ll become a quick note writing expert in the coming weeks, as you resist taking while you heal.

      Thank you for sharing. I couldn't stop after all; I just couldn't hold out very long for similar reasons to those that you shared. So I decided to just be open with my wife and tell her that I have to proceed.   All of this is bewildering to me, since I have been able to plan and control so much of my life up until my dysphoria surfaced. If this were a sporting match, the score is now Dysphoria 10 vs. Nimue 0.   I am mostly content to be losing this battle. However, I am not always so resolute and struggle with moments of panic an doubt, yet these moments do pass and I feel more sure each time.

      I just got confirmation of being enrolled in Sephora's online "Bold Beauty for the Transgender Community"! I don't have many people I can share this with who might understand how exciting this is for me, so I am celebrating with you! I hope you don't mind.   Happy dance!   Nimue

      I couldn't stop if I tried.  My dysphoria had gotten to the point that just the thought of not being able to live as a woman mad me almost suicidal. I hate every "male" aspect of my being so I'm fast tracking full medical transition. My world supports me but it has also cost me my marriage. We tried counseling. She absolutely wants me to transition but couldn't "transition" into a lesbian and the loss of a male partner left a large hole in her emotionally. We realized we both deserve someone whom we are attracted to and is attracted to us.  Still great friends but that was the price of being my authentic self. I'm lucky that she never wanted me to compromise, doing so probably would have killed me slowly. Everyone has their own journey and their own thresholds for what they are willing to do, or need to do in order to survive and live fully.   My advice is simple, if these compromises are tolerable for you and you are mentally OK with them the great.  On the flip side, if they are just an attempt to appease your spouse but they are emotionally painful for you then you need to reevaluate why you are compromising.  I've seen a lot of people compromise their transitional goals out of fear they will lose someone but even then, they don't "fix" the relationship. It just stagnates and resentments occur on both sides. Couples therapy helps you both see where things truly stand and why you are deciding to slow down or why you are being asked to slow down.   I HATE the fact that I've lost my wife, we had an amazing mariage. But we also realised, it wasn't going to survive without resentments. It was out of respect for each other we split. (also why we still love each other and are friends) My life will be harder and sadder without her, but I will also be able to flourish at some point as my authentic self, free to be me without the fear of hurting someone or myself.

      I heard this interview this evening on my local public radio station. Warning; this is a very emotional interview in which everyone cries. They are making a tv series on this ministers life. https://www.cpr.org/show-episode/nov-26-2021-transgender-pastor-shares-revelations-in-as-a-woman/
