Déjà vu

Tags

, ,

A 23 year old British student has fallen victim to one of the strangest cases of déjà vu ever recorded in medical history.

The student was forced to stop taking classes after the most bizarre case of chronic déjà vu left him with very little, to no quality of life.

The 23 year old had to give up TV, listening to music, or reading because he believed he’d seen it all before.

He told doctors he was ‘trapped in a time loop’ and said he felt he was reliving the past moment by moment.

Details of the case have been revealed in a report published by the Journal of Medical Case Reports. (http://www.jmedicalcasereports.com/content/8/1/414)

Doctors are scratching their heads as the man does not seem to be showing any of the neurological symptoms usually seen in people who are suffering from frequent/chronic déjà vu.

Fun fact: déjà vu is the French term for ‘already seen’.

I can’t help to think of Bill Murray in Ground Hog Day. Constantly reliving the same day over and over again until he finally gets it right.

I think I would go crazy if I were in this guys shoes. But it seems he is getting all the help and support he needs form doctors, family and the like.

If Ground Hog Day has taught us anything. It’s that everything turns out ok by the end of the movie. (oh.. and what a ground hog is)

Half-kilometer Asteroid to Pass Closely By on January 26

A cool little space death .gif thingie..

Just under two weeks from now, on Monday, Jan. 26, the 1/3-mile (0.5-km) -wide potentially hazardous asteroid 357439 (2004 BL86) will pass by Earth at 3.1 lunar distances, or 739,680 miles (1,190,400 km). While this may sound like a long way off, in the grand scheme of things it’s still a close pass… especially for an object as wide as the Burj Khalifa is high!

Don’t worry though – there’s no risk of an impact from 2004 BL86. It will go sailing by harmlessly at a relative 15.6 km/s velocity (that is, 34,900 mph) back out into the Solar System, just another rocky reminder that Earth is definitely not alone out here.

And, thankfully, astronomers will be watching.

Beards!

IMG_6571.JPG

Beards, beards, beards.

What is your opinion on beards? Love them? Hate them? Wish you could grow one yourself?

The reason I write this is because I have recently acquired a full faced beard and it is just past that stage where it’s all annoying and scratchy and stuff and I’m torn weather to keep it, or shave it off and flush it down the toilet where it belongs.

As you may now know. I’m not the biggest fan of beards. I think they look pretty trashy and wild, like some kind of savage mad man.

But society seems to be accepting the fact that they are increasing in numbers and thickness by the second.

So fad or not. I think I may keep this one now It is past it’s annoying scratchy faze. Until I step on it, or a bird family decides to make it, it’s home.

Down Days

Down days. Everybody has them, some more then others. Some worse then others.
But they seem to be woven in to the very fabric we call life and even the happiest and most positive of us can’t always escape them.

But when analysed (I mean truly analysed) not just the first rational thought that pops into your head, but getting down to the root of the problem/situation.
You find that the problems you are facing, lie with you.
Not the person up are thinking of that’s making you upset, or the boss who didn’t give you the weekend off. You!

And when you realise that, (accepting it, is a whole different thing altogether) you see the situation from a whole new perspective. A bigger, wider, universal perspective. You realise how small and petty these problems are, you notice that ‘said person’ isn’t causing you physical distress at this very moment and a lot of the fear, anxiety or depression is a figment of your over active imagination, trying to fill gaps of the story you missed. (Most of the time your couldn’t be more wrong)

So the majority of bad days, stem, and are kept alive, by you.
Change your outlook, change your thought, put yourself in someone else’s shoes. This could save you a whole lot of down time in the near future.

Remember – A moment of patients in a moment of anger, saves you a hundred moments of regret –
