I bet one could be trained to think non verbally but it would be nearly impossible once you have learned to speak and know words.

Its like...a whole other kind of thought our brain never has to work on. Maybe thats that percentage of our brain going unused. Though ive been told that is nowhere near the 90% the myth says it is.

We already partially think non verbally in our every day lives. When your mind brings memories and images in to context that is still a form of thinking.

The way I was taught to understand it was think about a tree. Got it? You don't think of the word "tree". You dont see the letters or the word. You see what you percieve a tree to be.

I'd assume those people who can't really think in language, think in images of perceptions.

I saved a hummingbird yesterday....


Girl at work saw it on the floor in a corner and asked me to see if it was ok. She also said "And dont kill it!" as if im...just that type of guy. I was almost offended she felt the need to ask me not to kill a hummingbird.



Anyway...I thought it was dead but it wasnt. It was barely moving. I assumed it must have gotten stuck inside and its super fast metabolism must have it starving to death.

So I poked a bunch of holes in a cardboard box and got a coffee cup and painted a red mark on it with a marker(they are attracted to red...which is why thats the color of hummingbird feeders). I put him(I decided its a male...males are the colorful ones) in the box and mixed some sugar from by the coffee in with some bottled water. Poked a tiny ass hole in the cup with a paper clip so the sugar water just barely dripped out. I intended to see if it would eat the sugar water out of the hole through the cup but it was too weak to get up. So instead I took a plastic stirrer and got some of the "nectar" in it and dripped it onto the end of its beak. It just lay there looking dead.

Seemed kinda hopeless:

So I kinda leaned its mouth into the water....



After a while it started drinking it

Slowly. but it was clearly sucking it up.

And after a while it just stood up. It didnt try to fly. Just stood up. So I put it on the cup with the sugarwater/hole/red dot and it was trying to kinda get at the drops. Then I decided...**** it. Im invested now. And I went and copped it a feeder.



So now:




By the end of the day he was actually kinda strong. Not flying but...up and about.



I gave him to the ho who was so concerned I might kill him. She said she would take care of it. Shes an animal ass ho.

I named him Reggie. As in Reggie Theus. But I didnt tell her the Theus part. That ho doesnt know Reggie Theus...

A hummingbird dropped dead out of the sky inches from hitting my face a couple years back. It was scary and amazing at the same time.
Iirc correctly, I shared a pic on here of the corpse, but I doubt I'll find it now.

You should probably tell the girl that you did kill it.

Tell us about South Carolina. You seem too intelligent to be living in a backwater like that. Like you should be in a big metro somewhere, doing big things.

I can't even name a city in the state off the top of my head.

Why arent bathroom doors automatic? Why is it that the one door nobody wants to touch is the one least likely to be automatic?

The least appealing thing to touch is the exiting handle on a public bathroom door. The ones that only open in...so you have to pull it....

Places like Walmart and such...should always have either an automatic bathoom door or no door at all and just have that sharp turn around the corner once you go in so you cant actually see in there but they dont need a door.

Ive often appreciated the places with the sharp turn in lieu of a door.
