There is one study suggesting that people who are relatively open to same-sex erotic behavior—and who are thus assumed to be more likely to engage in it—have higher levels of progesterone, a hormone related to bonding and caretaking. Could it be that gay people are particularly good at nurturing children, and that trait has helped them survive the Darwinian elimination game? Another study, involving Samoan islanders, seemed to back up this so-called kin-selection theory: Researchers found that gay Samoan men were more involved with their nieces and nephews than were their heterosexual counterparts of both sexes.
I continued to and became my . My former partner is the Indiana Jones of the free energy field, but I eventually realized that while it was awe-inspiring to witness his efforts, one man with a whip and fedora cannot save humanity from itself. I eventually took a different path from both my partner and astronaut colleague, and one fruit of that direction is this essay. Not only was the public largely indifferent to what we were attempting, but those attracted to our efforts usually either came for the spectacle or were opportunists who betrayed us at the first opportunity. As we weathered attacks from the power structures, such treacherous opportunities abounded. I witnessed dozens of attempts by my partner’s associates to steal his companies from him (, , , ), and my astronaut colleague was twice ejected from organizations that he founded, by the very people that he invited to help him. During my radicalizing years with my partner, I learned that , and it is the primary reason why humanity is in this predicament. The antics of the global elites are of minor importance; the enemy is us.
William Shakespeare's Comedies, Histories, and Tragedies.
As scientists know with mammals, although , it comes with a great energetic cost. As with plants, an animal can spend its on consumption (metabolism) or investment (growth). An intriguing hypothesis is that growing large was part of an energy strategy, as the benefits of size (reduced risk of predation, ease of conserving body heat and consequently less need for a high metabolism, ability to access new food sources, such as foliage high above the ground) outweighed their costs (energy devoted to growth instead of metabolism, the need to constantly feed). Their size and the warm climate meant that large dinosaurs did not need as intense internal energy generation as mammals do, for instance, and dinosaurs may have been , with internal energy regulation greater than , but not as great as (mammals and birds).
Romeo and Juliet are the main characters, or protagonists.
The Capulets try to pressure Juliet into accepting a marriage proposal from Paris.
: Elderly and unattractive woman who is Juliet's attendant, confidante, and messenger.
: Wife of Capulet. (ESK uh lihs): Prince of Verona.
This idyll, however, lasted for only two years. In 1865, one of the chimneys collapsed in a gale and the family moved to a cottage in the nearby village of Cranbourne. Thrown out of his Eden, Grahame spent the rest of his life trying to get back there. 'Somehow the sun does not seem to shine as brightly as it used to,' he wrote later. 'The trackless meadows of old time have shrunk and dwindled away to a few poor acres.'
: Young nobleman, kinsman of Escalus.
Although Grahame was plainly a sensitive child, he was hardly the quivering milksop of popular myth. He did well at his public school in Oxford, winning his First XV rugby colours and becoming head boy. He hoped to go on to Oxford, but what family he had by this stage reckoned that a university education was a waste of time. Instead, they found him a job as a gentleman-clerk in the Bank of England.
(The nurse had a daughter, Susan, who was the same age as Juliet.
Her homely language and her preoccupation with the practical, everyday world contrast sharply with the elevated language of Romeo and Juliet and their preoccupation with the idealistic world of love.
