    Glimpses do ye seem to see of that mortally intolerable truth; that all deep, earnest thinking is but the intrepid effort of the soul to keep the open independence of her sea; while the wildest winds of heaven and earth conspire to cast her on the treacherous, slavish shore?

    My kit is out for delivery. Now I have to decide whether to skip lunch until it comes so I can use it and bring it to the post office today. I think I will. The results could effect where I move. I want to be near the best hospital for whatever I'm most likely to get. But not in a coastal or low lying area or near tornado alley or an earthquake fault or the Yellowstone supervolcano or a big city.

    The woman at the post office used a folded box as a spatula to handle the box. Another time I wish I was recording everything. I have to wire myself some day.

    I chose to let them store the sample. I may get more results in the future that way and I think I'll be asked to take surveys.

    Oh, "EXEMPT HUMAN SPECIMEN" probably scared her.

    it sounds really interesting but man 200 euros are 200 euros. i mean, dollars or whatever.
    i believe my heritage is; south american, spanish - celtiberian, german, italian and some afro, what would be super astonishing would be to find out i've always been a jewish. XD
    no hate damn, just a joke. c'mon guys.
    but actually i believe that's really unlikely.
    about medical stuff, i'm not sure if i want to know what's being cooked inside. :S

    My...brother of my uncle...second uncle or whatever...told me how a genetic test saved someone's life. I think it was a more targeted test, not 23andme, and it was much more expensive. There are probably examples somewhere of people who discovered a genetic problem and were able to deal with it and minimize it because of 23andme. I'm going to join the 23andme forum and see what they're talking about.

    I did it a year or so ago. It showed I had high levels of MAO-B among other things. I tried selegiline (MAO-B inhibitor) and other supplements said to increase motivation, but nothing worked. I'll try them again after taking larger doses of opti-MSM and potassium iodide for a while.

    Now I'm being asked to complete a "20 minute" questionnaire that reminds me of a personality test. For the first question I'm trying to choose whether I'm in good, very good, or excellent health. I'm already stumped.

    ...it's asking if I was ever diagnosed with hair loss. I'm answering yes to these type questions when I'm self diagnosed and very sure.
