I learned that sometimes inmates scream and yell just to get other inmates worked up into doing the same all in an effort to pass time

i learned how much i didn't know about how to make a seat.

i mean actually craft a seat that you can sit on, not the fiberglass pan with some padding on it so you don't crush your nuts on a pothole.

you really only need to pad where YOUR assbones, the ones at the top of your femurs, are.

you don't need to and likely won't want to have padding all the way across, this lets your tailbone and junk have a bit of relief and cooling.

i also learned that discarding the idea of a really lean mean looking seat in the interest of providing lumbar support is easy once you ride a pothole on a mean lean looking seat..

I learned that Lucas now recognizes me, get all excited and screams "Daddy, Daddy!" before Im out of the truck when I pick him up at the babysitter after I've been gone for 7 days.

I also learned that if I ask him "Where's my kiss?" he will lean in towards me and wait for a kiss. And if I ask "Where's my cuddle?", he will hug me and gently tap the top of my head.

I learned that learning that for a second time (Eva-Mae did the same when she was a baby) still makes me tear up.

I learned that you should not have a curious rottweiller in a motorhome during the event of getting it on with your wife.

A cold nose in your arse at the wrong moment kills the mood completely.

I learned I need to consider drinking again ...
Quote:
There is good news for beer lovers this week. According to a new study, drinking alcohol might actually help with problem solving.
University of Illinois at Chicago cognitive psychologist Jennifer Wiley said alcohol enhances creative problem solving by reducing our ability to focus our attention, according to a report by The Federation of Associations in Behavioral & Brain Scienc-es, or FABBS.
Essentially, a moderate amount of alcohol before a test proved to improve people's creative problem solving abilities, thus, enabling them to do better.
"Working memory capacity is considered the ability to control one's attention," according to Wiley. "It's the ability to remember one thing while you're thinking about something else." In the past, scientists have found that increased working memory capacity, or better attention control usually leads to better problem-solving performance — when it comes to analytical problem solving. But the same cannot be said when it comes to solving problems that require creativity.
The study examined the effects of alcohol consumption on creative problem-solving tasks. Most states consider a person intoxicated if his blood alcohol level is 0.08 or higher.
“We found at 0.07 blood alcohol, people were worse at working memory tasks, but they were better at creative problem-solving tasks,” Wiley said.
For example, if Wiley asked you to tell her what word goes with the following: blue, cottage, Swiss. And you said, “cheese,” you’d be accessing your remote ideas, not linear ones. That is, you associated blue, cottage and Swiss with cheese, a commendable and constructive thing to do.
The alcohol helped participant’s access remote ideas, ideas that develop through association, not linear analysis. In fact, linear reasoning can keep people focused on ideas they think are important but really aren’t, according to FABBS.
“We have this assumption, that being able to focus on one part of a problem or having a lot of expertise is better for problem solving,” according to Wiley. “But that’s not necessarily true. Innovation may happen when people are not so focused. Sometimes it’s good to be distracted.”
Other factors that helped with creativity included changing routine, getting enough sleep and growing older.
