It appears the Squad are a bigger thorn in Queen Nancy's side than Trump.

FILM/TV/MUSIC/Art etc... / Days of Future Future (New Byrne X-Men)

So about a year ago, veteran comic artist John Byrne (famous for definitive turns on Fantastic Four, Superman, and X-Men) started to write and draw a bunch of new X-Men comics just for fun.  Marvel was interested in publishing but he opted instead to run them on his own website as fan fiction.  Itís all a bit roundabout but the upshot is that thereís now five out of twelve or so full issues from a major creator returning to the property where he really made his name - and the interesting thing on top of that is the conceit that these new issues pick up from when he originally left the book in 1981.  The new comics are also pencils only, which gives a pretty fascinating glimpse into the working process of a skilled comics craftsman.

Iím having trouble pasting the links from my phone, but Iíll try to do it from my laptop later.

I used to read a lot more than now. I still read a good few pages a day but mainly articles rather than books. Before I had kids I was reading 2 to 3 books per week. I was quite fast as well, could manage to read an average 200-250 pages in a little bit over 2 hours... And when I was a child I was constantly reading. I miss it, just can't find the time anymore. There is something about getting lost in a text that is idiosyncratic to reading and can't be compared to listening to music or watching movie, it's a whole different level of sensations.

A lot of Original Netflix lately, I find their own content very interesting. A serie called Marianne, extremely disturbing. Eli wasn't bad at all.  The Mind explained is a good serie to follow too.  Netflix is really trying to experiment new things, for that they're very important and so different of the whole remake vibe...

General Discussion / Re: Epigenetic

the discoveries in epigenetic are rewriting the rules of identity and heredity - also diseases.

the first experience was with agouti mice. They're yellow, fat and prone to diabetes and cancer. In this experiment they changed the mother diet, and the offsprings were slim, brownish and not as prone to cancer and diabetes. That has been achieved only by changing the diet of the mother not by altering the DNA of the mice.

Also epigenetic proved that our DNA can modify itself all along life, depending on our environment. Our DNA is not set in stone.

An other point that I found extremely interesting is that our experiences are also transmitted to the next generation. One example was a woman raped by a member of her family, having the child  from the rape. Analyzing the  DNA of the raped woman, her mother and her child, the researchers found ''scars'' from the trauma on certain genes, the grand mother and the mother had them, but the most surprising thing is that the child who didn't knew about the rape had the biggest genetic scar.

Therefor our own attitude toward life and negativity will affect our DNA and our offsprings DNA.


I am just starting to look into that field, it is very recent, it is absolutely fascinating, how malleable is our DNA and how everything we do, everything we experience is actually modifying it.
