    Shipping forecasts here mention of a Doggerland.

    Before records existed it could be walked due to sea levels. The druids were formed and cut off by the rising sea. What a result. My feeling is a sense of nobility sprung from the natural isolation.

    History favours the Roman but geography they flunked a few times. Half the noble died when they made it here. It's why I am a few percent Iberean I guess.

    I am a Danish Celt and it is great to know why I am who I am.

    I thought about getting one of those Genetic tests done to see what my ancestry was, I know my grandparents where part Cherokee Indian and Spanish on my father's side, And German Russian on my mother's side. So whatever that mathematically turns out to be, But ultimately, I stress, Geneology doesn't matter as much as people believe it does or should. Genetically, Nearly every living person on the planet is 99% genetically identical anyhoo :)

    If only we acted 99% the same I would agree.

    The mind is crafted by culture with no genetic alteration.

    Very true, and then you have to take into account for mental illnesses, Which I am all but certain ironically 99% of all people have, I know I do. :/


    I'm bipolar as @#$% <-- true story.

    I mean, Everyone that knows me has seen me have an episode, They really do suck, The worst part is, They make me look like an asshole, who just doesn't care, But, I'm really not that guy... I just have issues.

    I have read apologetic posts for your behaviour but to be honest I haven'the seen episode one.

    You having one here on this thread, I wouldn'the have guessed.

    Truth about me is it isn't in me to care for people on a sliding scale relative to my kith and kin. Wrong or natural ?

    I have them a lot less often than I used to, I don't know if its age or just experience. But to have one these days, Someone literally has to be an ass trolling poking the bear, But they are bad sometimes when I have them.

    It's hard to explain being Bipolar Because some people will perceive it as, I can handle my nerves, So why can't shadow handle his. It's hard to explain, It's like an adrenalin chemical thing,

    The thought process changes in this way, I will see something someone has pressed on an issue that I perceive as unnecessarily shitty toward me, Then, It's like a feeling just comes over me,

    Like, This person doesn't know what it's like to be me, This person doesn't know what it's like to bury two daughters and put them in the ground, This person hasn't worked as hard as me just to keep it together, By then, I'm having an episode, It's like a brain chemical thing. They do suck. People can say, Well if I was you shadow, I would this or that, but that's the thing, Those people don't have to wake up every morning knowing how old his daughters would be, knowing they aren't there either, It's something that destroyed me to the point that I'm disabled and unable to hold a public job, I have panic attacks and just black out, Those are the best ones because I don't bother other people with those ones.

    as heavy as this post was, I'm able to keep a level head because I realize none of us are perfect and all of us have faced hardships. That's probably the most real thing I've ever said about myself online.

    I do realize that was a heavy thing to drop in casual conversation. But, in fairness, People deserve to know why I'm a bitter prick sometimes.

    The brilliant Stephen Fry is bipolar.He talks openly about his illness.People can't understand why someone who appears to have such a great life can be so depressed.I think that people are thankfully becoming more understanding as more people like Stephen Fry speak up.

    I joined Ancestry and had the genetic test done. The info was interesting. Hadn't realized there was a 'make public' box. That was a couple of years ago. Forgot about it. Not one, not two but THREE sisters later I am not sure what to make of it.

    I totally agree, The thing about people is, And that makes Pepe's point come full circle. Is how everyone deals with things in their own unique way.

    I've wanted to do that for a while, But I have reservations about it, I've seen a lot of people get those genetic tests done, It's almost like they tell people what they want to hear, I have pondered how accurate some of those tests really are.

    Very sorry to hear all that. We're all human.

    About two weeks ago I accidentally detonated a guy at the gym and he went berserk, started calling me names to the point where the whole place stopped and stared. Figures, I had to do this to a 5'3" version of The Hulk. Haven't seen him since and I was thinking roidrage but seriously, you have given me something else to think about.

    From what I was able to find apart from the tests in historical records I'd say they're accurate. They have to package the results for public consumption. My wife did 23&me and the results were in more scientific terms but a little obscure to interpret. Just be careful with making it public. I met three lovely women but it's weird to find strangers swimming in my gene pool.

    Thing is some of us don'the have to face such things. Rough deal with the kids, hard to imagine.

    I sometimes wonder if our fear based nature, when at rest in society, manifests these conditions we suffer.

    Kudos.

    Everyone has their hardships my brother, And look, One of the hardest lessons I've had to learn is, I don't know anything about the other persons hardships, I may lose it sometimes, But that doesn't mean the other guy wasn't having a bad day too. Be tolerant, but Even if some guy is rude or insane, They don't know you or your hardships, Be understanding, But don't take peoples shit. Because that person doesn't know what you have been through either :)

    It's the sole reason I defend religion so hard, When people tell me God isn't real, That's them telling me they are really gone forever and I will never see them again, The thought that I may possibly see them again is all that keeps me sane. Some people, Need that.

    Explains your hankering for another dimension.

    Who knows for real is my base line. No one but it seems we are designed so there will always be a sense of a maker. I'm a big evolution by intentional seeding believer, panspermia. I think I saw a farmer who doesn't come from these parts.
