Works at interacting with other people. I post items here for discussion, just because I post an item doesn't mean that I believe it, doesn't mean that I disbelieve it; it doesn't mean that I support it, or that I don't. I post for discussion, preferably rational with critical scientific thinking. If you troll me I'll slam you down. If you assume that I believe something that is your problem.

For five years, a group of self-described techno-archaeologists working in an old, abandoned McDonald's have been on a mission: to recover and digitize forgotten photos taken in the ‘60s by a quintet of scuttled lunar satellites.

Vittori hopes to have two WarkaTowers erected in Ethiopia by 2015 and is looking for financial rainmakers who'd like to seed these tree-inspired structures across the country.

Anthony Watts writes: "Some of you may know that I suffer about an 85% hearing loss, and even with powerful hearing aids I still have very poor hearing which has gotten almost non-functional over the years. It makes me a social hermit since I don't function well in public. It is part of the reason I became a broadcaster, I only had to talk to the camera or to the microphone.

I knew this day would come, I predicted this gene therapy over 10 years ago. I can only hope I can be able to take advantage of it someday. Hopefully, new medical rules from the Obamacare fiasco won't prevent it."

I had Bells Palsy for a month which paralyzed the left side of my face, in my case it was due to sleeping in a hotel room with the air conditioning system blowing on my face all night long. It was not certain that I would regain function, fortunately it was diagnosed quickly and the doctor sent me to the pharmacy to immediately take medication.

I know the joy of regaining function after having a part of one's body not functioning. You - and many others who this would work for - deserve the best possible outcome from this modern medical breakthrough and the joy of hearing again or for the first time. I imagine the joy of regaining hearing would be one of the greatest pleasures and deepest emotions in one's life.

(The most famous person who had Bells Palsy permanently was Pierre Trudeau, the former Prime Minster of Canada.  It's why he always talked a little funny on one side of his mouth.

Bells Palsy: "Bell's palsy is a form of facial paralysis resulting from a dysfunction of the cranial nerve VII (the facial nerve) causing an inability to control facial muscles on the affected side. Several conditions can cause facial paralysis, e.g., brain tumor, stroke, myasthenia gravis, and Lyme disease. However, if no specific cause can be identified, the condition is known as Bell's palsy. Named after Scottish anatomist Charles Bell, who first described it, Bell's palsy is the most common acute mononeuropathy (disease involving only one nerve) and is the most common cause of acute facial nerve paralysis (>80%)."

For me, this is a profound moment. It will be even more profound if many people can benefit from it. Some of you may know that I suffer about an 85% hearing loss, and even with powerful hearing aid...
