I really like your "show me" request.

On October 6, 1990, in the afternoon, I unexpectedly felt like I was standing on "another planet" then I "came back" to my desk.









Show me a concrete example of self-fulfilling prophecy you consider interesting.

Anton, I really enjoyed your picture story--thanks for taking the time to create it!
Your request: Self-Fulfilling Prophecy
An interesting challenge indeed! These prophecies are usually associated with negative things, like my friend who was afraid to ride a horse because she was sure she'd fall and break her arm. And that's exactly what happened! I turned this on its head though and decided to do the opposite. I would think of something that seemed impossible to me and then make it a reality.

One of my best examples is a garden I created back in 2014. I started with a disaster--hard clay soil covered with a carpet of weeds and lots of animals ready to eat anything I might be successful growing. It took me a long time but in the end, I had my gorgeous garden, overflowing with flowers!!

Show me a picture of an animal you are afraid of, and tell me why.
(P.S. I am forever frustrated that I can't consistently link pictures from my photo-sharing website, so I needed to give links...sigh...)

Hi Janet- the rules of this game doesn't require storytelling or explanations why. It's up to you if you want to do such things.







Show me what kind of animal you would like to be.(besides human or apes)

You're welcome, Janet! :)
Thank you for sharing.

Reviving the October 5 event or exploring the self-fulfulling stuff was enjoyable for me :)

My "everything" is what especially helps me create most of my own representation of "everything": my brain and my eyes (simplistically put).

Does this collage show up? My best memory: my dad...I created a collage of images for my dad's birthday some years ago. If you cannot see it, the link is here: http://www.ipernity.com/doc/290645/17694753
If you click on the link and roll your mouse over the picture, there are notes about every image. I miss him every day. He was my hero.

EU has announced it wants to hire people to whole-day porpoise watchers on Baltic Sea. I can see to the sea from my sauna balcony. Have a good pay for drinking beer and watching for these really rare animals from your own balcony. Report on August 3: I think I almost saw one.

It's not a dolphin, it's a whale.

I'm not sure what your question means Antoine. Genetically speaking not one human being is the same.So we are all special in that sense. In many other things we are all different ect........I personally think that there is anything that makes me special.

Schlook: I regularly post "show me" requests that are not so easy to handle with precision. I'm interested in what will be answered anyway, with more or less imagination. I really like your answer + explanation.
