Pop (!) explanation of neruoplasticity, via Dune

Postby Lundse » 10 Feb 2012 04:28

Fear is the mind killer, stress, etc.

io9 is pretty pop-culture oriented. Maybe what the scifi channel should have been aiming for...? I don't know. Anyway, no KJA apologists have popped up yet, that has to be a good sign. Just thought i'd report the sighting...

I personally feel that this message board, Jacurutu, is full of hateful folks who don't know
how to fully interact with people.

that was a hell of a book.Anytime you read something and put it down feeling like someone took your gray matter, stretched it out all over the place like taffy, did origami with it, and played it like a harp... well, you can't really do anything but applaud.

:clap:

especially stretched it out all over the place like taffy, sounds so much like being spread thin ^^

EDIT TO ADD

I love doing this :mrgreen:
