  1. I baked my mum a giant cookie (and helped her eat it).
  2. I'm sorry Marbs. Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'un.

    I discovered a way to make quite decent frozen yoghurt. You'll need a food processor (maybe a blender would work). Put your yoghurt of choice in the appliance and turn it on. Then feed frozen fruit (i like to use frozen cherries) into it. You should get a sludge of fairly small crystals. Add any syrup you want to use to sweeten it and put into an airtight container and freeze. The ice crystals should stay nice and small, keeping the product pleasantly smooth.
  4. What tastes good?! Native Americans called bears 'Grandfather' or 'Old man' and werent the only people to notice how human-like the bears can seem.

    O you must try it! its great winter food. I like to make mango dal.
  8. This is a good example of how intelligent and adaptive bears are. At some point the bear must have mimicked the human waving and the human must have gotten all excited about the bears anthropomorphic behaviour and thrown a reward, so the bear continued the strategy and taught his friend to do likewise =) now he gets a load of extra treats with minimal energy expenditure.
  9. @notme My word! here's a blast from the past. So much has happened since 2011...
  10. I have personal experience of this. It got so bad that the person could no longer tolerate me any more due to my more cautious/moderate approach and views and unwillingness to support them in disseminating certain kinds of potentially slanderous sectarian material they were engaged in producing. This kind of attitude can be heartbreaking and has ended friendships and marriages. I cant say i understand the psychology behind it, i wish i did.

    When is it de rigueur for you guys to have baked beans?
  12. I am so thankful we're detached! the loudest noise here is the fridge.
  13. @uponthesunnah Bears have been known to dabble in philosophy. Work in what sense? in that instance it would seem that what was human consciousness (that is, the human capacity for conscious awareness) would become bear consciousness (the bear capacity for conscious awareness). Some kind of body would be needed to regulate that experience and make it the kind that it is, but it need not be the gross body.
  14. Trump's travel ban temporarily blocked nationwide by federal judge in Seattle They should take the babies rattles away one by one.
  15. Its nice to be appreciated, thanks =) Well, with regards to this NDE account, i seem to remember the person suggesting that they didnt lose any knowledge whilst they 'wore' the other persons experience, as it were. So perhaps it was more like being in a simulation of the other persons experience. The other option would be for you to unplug (or be unplugged) from all knowledge of your own life experience and to have your consciousness some how plug into another beings entire reality. But would it be you experiencing it? if 'our' consciousness is simply the faculty of awareness then nothing would have changed, consciousness wouldnt be experiencing anything new.
  16. ...could you be confusing jannah with lucid dreaming? if you can train yourself to lucid dream you could maybe experience yourself as a bear in your dream. It wouldnt be an authentic bear experience though of course. You just reminded me, i once saw someone talk about a near death experience they had where they experienced the world as someone else in a sense (their feelings and physical sensations), so its not unthinkable that this kind of thing could be a possibility.
  17. If the lion look involves you growing your hair out and dying it strawberry blonde i'd suggest you go for the bear. If you want to intimidate like a bear you should learn to pop your jaw and master the bluff charge.
  18. Yes but your intention mustnt be to be scary in an egotistical kind of way.
  19. You could start by purchasing a onesie like this: minus the trainers. Then adjust your diet accordingly with lots of fresh salmon and sedge (or similar). Then you should probably practice roaming in the countryside to see if you can begin to see the world as a bear might.
  20. ...I'm not qualified to answer, but i hope so. Presumably aspects of their bear nature wouldnt be uploaded, like the desire to chew on hapless humans now and again.
  21. I do hope the bear didnt attend a screening of this docu -- 'beast' indeed, how rude!
