    Learning is fun, but sometimes you learn things you would be better off not knowing....

    Right now, as you read this, minute lice are having sex all over your face, hundreds of thousands of them...

    In your eyelashes, in your eye brows, in your ears and nose and all over your face. You are basically a lice cum dump...

    Wish I didn't know that, or share that...

    I will never lie to you. What I say is how I feel...

    Demodex, are actually mites rather than lice.

    Whats even more insane is that there are mites that have evolved to live everywhere.. humans, plants, soil, there are even species of mites that have evolved to live on insects.

    EDIT: Lice have mites also

    Nothing beats old mother nature :D

    Working in health care has taught me many terrible things about diseases and human suffering. I have seen families with diseases such as Huntington's that have a 50% chance of passing it on to their offspring and many of the family ended up in long term medical care as they slowly died terrible deaths. Unable to eat or communicate and their bodies burning massive amounts of calories due to the constant movements that they had no control over. Ignorance is bliss sometimes. 

    Mites are the lesser of terrible things.

    In some species, such as dogs, Demodex mites can populate to the point of mange, which is potentially deadly. On humans, Demodex spends most of its time helping us out by eating dead skin cells, but they can over-populate to the point of blepharitis, an itchy, uncomfortable ocular condition.

    So are they comensal or parasitic? That depends...in proper balance they're a friend, but if the cutaneous or immunological environment changes they can show their true colours as opportunistic pathogens.

    Fortunately, they're quite easy to control. I don't spend money on fancy eyedrops. If my eyelids are red and itchy I apply a small amount of mild castile soap twice a day until the condition goes away.

    The Fermi Paradox. Are we alone and lucky, or is something coming for us.

    Roko's Basilisk. I don't really believe in it but it's a weird thought experiment.

    That people climb or swim into holes in the ground and get lost/stuck suffocating or drowning. Then other people do it for fun. They literally have to post signs in underwater caves that you will die if you enter them.

    I like birds.
    I wish I didn't learn about the Cloaca.

    *In animal anatomy, a cloaca, plural cloacae, is the posterior orifice that serves as the only opening for the digestive, reproductive, and urinary tracts of many vertebrate animals.*

    This I agree with. This is pretty mind bending, but has no current use...

    The theory & architecture behind quantum computing includes entanglement, there are already working systems by both IBM and Google Quantum.

    Humans can only see 0.0035% of the light spectrum in existence.

    However AI is predicted to be advanced enough with a decade to be able to perceive near 100% of all light I the universe.

    Panthos cave anthology is interesting;

    Three men are prisoner in a cave with there arms shackled above there heads, they're whole perception of reality is based on the shadows on the cave wall in front of them.

    They assign titles and names to the things they see,
    Until one day one man is released and allowed to travel freely outside the cave.

    Once outside his eyes burned from the light, he struggled to comprehend objects in front of him for what they were, instead drawn to the shadows they created.

    Eventually the man's eyes adjusted to the truth of the world and he saw things for what they were.x
    Upon the revelation the man went to the cave to free the other two men.

    Sadly when the man entered the cave and stared at the shadows that once were his life he no longer saw what they were instead just illusions.

    He insisted upon the men to come outside and be free, however the two men refused the truth and resorted to violence kicking the man away calling him insane, laughable.

    The man left the two men prisoner inside the cave understanding there was no way of forcing the truth onto the men.

    I have treated so many doggies with pathological presentation of Demodex canis. 

    Actually pretty common stuff.
