They say once an addict always an addict

I think this might explain a little bit of that
People with Family History of Alcoholism Release More Dopamine in Expectation of Alcohol

All three groups had similar dopamine release-levels in response to the alcohol, suggesting that alcohol-induced dopamine release is normal in AUD.

The research is in Biological Psychiatry: Cognitive Neuroscience and Neuroimaging. (full access paywall)

Spiral Galaxy NGC 4038 in Collision

This galaxy is having a bad millennium. In fact, the past 100 million years haven't been so good, and probably the next billion or so will be quite tumultuous. Visible toward the lower right, NGC 4038 used to be a normal spiral galaxy, minding its own business, until NGC 4039, to its upper left, crashed into it. The evolving wreckage, known famously as the Antennae, is featured here. As gravity restructures each galaxy, clouds of gas slam into each other, bright blue knots of stars form, massive stars form and explode, and brown filaments of dust are strewn about. Eventually the two galaxies will converge into one larger spiral galaxy. Such collisions are not unusual, and even our own Milky Way Galaxy has undergone several in the past and is predicted to collide with our neighboring Andromeda Galaxy in a few billion years. The frames that compose this image were taken by the orbiting Hubble Space Telescope by professional astronomers to better understand galaxy collisions. These frames -- and many other deep space images from Hubble -- have since been made public, allowing interested amateurs to download and process them into, for example, this visually stunning composite.

Craters and Shadows at the Lunar Terminator
Image Credit & Copyright: Talha Zia
https://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap180522.html

Why does the right part of this image of the Moon stand out? Shadows. The terminator line -- the line between light and dark -- occurs in the featured image so that just over half the Moon's face is illuminated by sunlight. The lunar surface appears different nearer the terminator because there the Sun is nearer the horizon and therefore causes shadows to become increasingly long. These shadows make it easier for us to discern structure, giving us depth cues so that the two-dimensional image, when dominated by shadows, appears almost three-dimensional. Therefore, as the Moon fades from light to dark, shadows not only tell us the high from the low, but become noticeable for increasingly shorter structures. For example, many craters appear near the terminator because their height makes them easier to discern there. The image was taken two weeks ago when the lunar phase was waning gibbous. The next full moon, a Moon without shadows, will occur one week from today.

Give the #Palestinians the right to bear and keep arms equal to the #Israelis' right to bear and keep arms and have them duke it out and figure out who's on top.

In any given area I predict the following outcomes

1. The right to bear and keep arms will not be bestowed upon anybody but the oppressors and the oppressed will continue to fight for their freedoms...

2. The more popular religion of the land will dominate and overpower all other religions...

3. ★but what I think is most likely is, everybody or most people will decide that, perhaps we should mind our own business, and everybody will have religious freedom equal to everybody else, simply because it is not worth it to lose people or wage war, when everybody has weapons.
