So when you have a mimetic device to help you remember something, you can be confident you know… however, when your instantaneous recall is wrong, but your confidence is high, you are wrong and don’t notice. =/
Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck scream
I have a few friends on facebook that I just don’t like — they actually aggravate me with the things they value and their modus operandi. But hey, it’s food for thought, and it’s opportunity to reconsider my own values with the stark contrast
Last night I had the pleasure of waiting on a family of 4 - 3 brothers and a father figure. One of the brothers, probably the oldest, appeared to have some kind of mental handicap, which I say even though he was bilingual and I am not. He asked me my name, and when I told him, he got so excited throughout his whole body, with a kind of suppressed clap… and a massive smile… and so many simple interests and interactions kept him so excited and happy… and he did show a little cleverness in his banter… I was a little jealous. I experience most of my joy vicariously, and this dude was simply a geyser for my type to feed on.

My tiny highschool basketball team (noone on the bench) had a similar experience - it was like 110 to 8 or something ridiculous, we lost. I can’t remember if we got mercy rule’d or not, but it really wasn’t that bad, and I’m sure it built more character than a mediocre loss. =)
at work sometimes i’ll start the first syllable of a thought and realize I can’t finish it to the person I’m talking to
I was bluffing… I dom’t actually have an appropriate response for that
When that cooler blood gets to the brain, brain temperature would drop, too, triggering a happy feeling. The theory works in reverse, too: Zajonc says that when the muscles involved in a frown tighten, the result is increased blood flow to the cavernous sinus and, by extension, a warmer brain.
