  10. “It is sometimes an appropriate response to reality to go insane.” ― Philip K. Dick, VALIS ... Or to go to grad school because that's pretty much the same thing. Purdue Food Science PhD program on a USDA National Needs fellowship for Foods & Health, starting in the fall. Yikes!

      It will, which, given the current weather, lends more credence to the insanity plea I'll surely be making in court one day.

  11. One Up Me

    You can get into politics if you act like you're smart. You can't stay in politics, however, if you're actually smart. You'll be found out & replaced.
  12. Peek-a-boo

    Not your lucky guess.
  13. One Up Me

    You know you're a grammar Nazi when you're me. Simply bow to the inevitable and declare me Fuhrer.
  14. An interesting thought, & yet I would also posit that most people are not the exact same person they were even 1 year ago. (No, I have no evidence or citations.) Some may consider themselves a different person from yesterday, though that may not happen every day. However, the same person as began reading your question? Yes, I would consider myself the same, as my following thoughts are things I have considered before. I think it has less to do with cell regeneration/replacement as with experience. There is some evidence of "cell memory" (especially, examples with some people who've had organ transplants & exhibit different personality traits post-op), & this may hold true, but most people don't have that situation to deal with. Life, living, & personal growth happen with time & experience, & those can change a person slowly or rapidly depending on the person & their particular understanding they gain through their experiences. Likely also, the way in which they can interpret those experiences. I think there are both genetic/physical brain structure & experiential components that make up a person, especially their personality & mental state. So if a personality were imprinted upon a "wiped" or "blank" brain with a different genetic or physical signature, there would be differences, though they may not be immediate or immediately noticeable. The more interesting question to me is, If my brain could be removed & fully re-engaged without damage or loss into some sort of host, would "I" still remain? Would there be a host in which I could continue to function as myself, continue to learn, experience, & grow? Or would there be a lack of "soul" or some essential part of the body/brain/personality mash-up that would render the brain simply an AI processor to an automaton?
