So clitoris is spelled the same in English as it is in Portuguese.
I never knew that. I learn something new everyday and this forum is a place to learn valuable information from cultures all around the world. You never know when that information will come in handy later in life.

Was that too much? Bah! I didn't start it! I like controversy and will probably get my head bitten off for that. :lol:

Can't really engage with simpler games like that.

I'm going to let your last reply remain a double entendre for me. ;) I've been trying so hard to piss nesgirl off with sexual innuendo jokes, but I keep failing. Maybe this time I will incur the wrath I so deserve.

Yeah, clitoris is the same. And yes, Portuguese is native but since I arrived in the UK I've been using English more than anything! :-D

But it's funny... I can think in both languages, and, curiously, sometimes in no language at all. Whichever way I think, though, like everyone else, after doing it heavily blood will flow to the areas of the brain that have mostly been active as my neurons need more glucose. My brain has the same relationship to my body as the United States has to the rest of the world - the brain is roughly 3% of the total body mass, while it consumes 20% of the energy expended.

Do we really care, notice, or think about this that much? Not really. But we know we have to look after ourselves. Everything is a fucking game and we must play it well. And, erm, I think I'm getting tired now. I loved watching "The Island" today. Great movie! I love the fact that we can talk about anything here. Okay, I'm off to bed!

My brain is like The United States too. I have indecision and battle with my mind like it's congress, just bickering without a resolution. Then I finally mutter something, tap away at a keyboard and write it here. I blame it on the Joe Biden aspect of my psyche.

Dreams are the universal language and I'm telling you guys, extended hypnopompia in the morning is something to experiment with. Just saying! 8-)

"You never have to change anything you get up in the middle of the night to write."
--Saul Bellow
Our hypnopompic thoughts are our best kinds of thoughts--and I owe it to HAGART for making me aware of the term "hypnopompia." I think it's on the brink of sleep that we most often hit that beautiful theta brainwave and our mind is most potent. It's why I always keep my writer's journal by my bedside--in case a line of poetry occurs to myself or I have inspiration about a direction for my novel.

"The Island." Eh. Michael Bay. *forces back a gag* I haven't seen it though.

So true guys. Hypnopompia rules. Saul Bellow rocks. He told his wife he was going to a brothel with Christopher Hitchens to do research. Brilliant!

Watch "The Island." Futuristic dystopia disguised as a fucking saviour community ruled by a shady government with the promise of a heavenly utopia for those who win a lottery. Like religion promising a heavenly afterlife. Only there is no fucking island. I don't want to say too much but it's like the 6th Day/The Beach/1984 but with great action and special effects. Great sci-fi thriller. :-)

Ewan McGreggor...aye! :-D

I'm more familiar with hypnopompia than I am with hypnagogia.

Your mind is cloudy with residual 'sleep chemicals' and you are not awake, you are not asleep, you are something else.... you are drunk with hypnopompia. That's why someone coined the term. Our minds really are just a machine full of chemicals isn't it?

I had a few mind blowing revelations that are hard to put into words, but I can with art: The truest, distilled essence of the mind. Not words, but visions and feelings. Art is a language we all understand deep down regardless.

I'll share my vision:
It's a faucet. The kind that is on a knob and up and down controls the water flow, left and right control hot or cold. But it isn't labeled that way. Left and right is instead, Love and Fear. Fear is cold, love is warm. Up and down is the intensity of the flow. Too much of any of those is hard to handle. In the center is where I wanted to be. I can imagine making an interactive work of art based on that with a running faucet, labeled differently. Sounds pretty deep...

But now on to more important issues. Not penis or clitoris- we already handled those. But movies. I never heard of The Island, but saw Divergent the other day. What a load of crap!

This 'Nowhere thread, going nowhere for nobody' is already more entertaining than all of Megaman Discussion put together. How often can they reference genitalia willy-nilly like we can? (I need to speak with my Joe Biden and introduce a new item in my psyche called a 'filter'... but I'll let my internal congress decide and we all know how that goes.) ;)

I enjoyed HAGART's faucet vision. How profound! Also, the "Divergent" movies are so bad. So so bad--I hate all the angsty, unsophisticated teenager movies they're making these days. Yesterday I saw "Foxcatcher" in the theater which was perhaps the most deeply unsettling film I'd seen all year--aside, of course, for "The Babadook," an Australian horror indie film that deserves all the trophies there are. If you're a horror buff like me, it's a must see.

I myself would prefer to be a robot as well. There's no need for anthropocentrism when it's obvious that being a more refined mechanism would be advantageous (there's also no need to condemn our current homo sapien vessel completely, though). It would be nice to be free from our capricious and flimsy nervous systems that fail us frequently and allow us to experience pain, to be free from our mammalian desire to consume nutrition and then excrete it, to be free from all the inevitable failures associated with our organic restraints.

@Summerlander
I'm doubtful because the film is under Bay's direction--I might watch it though. I'm reading the little book "A Universe from Nothing" at the moment; I'm at the bit where Krauss is discussing virtual particles and their vast implications in determining the phantom weights of nebulae and their even vaster implications about the spontaneity of existence. I must confess that a portion of the book is going over my head (tetrahydrocannabinol, that elixir of mathematical cognition, helps alleviate this :D ), despite Krauss's already hyper-simplified and layperson-tailored rhetoric, but I'm deeply enjoying what I can retain. Perhaps I would've found the book far more accessible had I already taken AP Physics, which I will be taking next year.

Who are you all's favorite filmmakers? My own include Christopher Nolan ("The Dark Knight," "Inception"), Denis Villeneuve ("Prisoners," "Enemy"), Quentin Tarantino ("Django: Unchained," "Reservoir Dogs"), Stanley Kubrick ("2001: A Space Odyssey," "The Shining"), the Coen brothers ("No Country for Old Men," "True Grit"), Wes Anderson ("Moonlight Kingdom," "The Grand Budapest Hotel") and undoubtedly a few others I've forgotten about. These aren't my favorite films, mind you, just my favorite filmmakers with their more popular films listed to aid identification.
