Thank you so much for this great list of questions! If you don't mind I think I might elaborate in a blog form of question number 8, does my dog understand what I say? That's very interesting and I've often wondered this myself. I talk to my dog all of the time and sometimes he does exactly what I say and other times he just perks his ears and tilts his head like he is extremely confused. Great questions!

Personally, I know that I also have a difficult time coming up with blog post topics. Obviously there are so many to choose from, but for this blog session, I wanted to make sure I think "outside of the box" and not write about topics that seem to be very common. I looked over your list and you have some really great ideas that I think will take you up through the rest of blogging! I am sure others (including myself) will check on your list and get a few ideas. My attention was originally drawn to number 6 off of your list. I find it actually a pretty funny idea because I know that happens to me! I might have to look further into this idea. I know that whenever I am sleeping and am kind of feeling uncomfortably hot, I decide to put one leg out from under the covers to "cool down." Do you think this is more of a mental thing? For instance, we just automatically do that because we feel coolness right away and become more comfortable? I wonder if different parts of the body take in more heat? Another eye catching topic that you listed was number 25 about freezing people and thawing them out in later years. I think once in my life I have heard the rumor about Walt Disney if I'm not mistaking, having his body frozen. We hear that sometimes with celebrities, maybe because they think their "greatness" should be on display for years to come. I don't know if I really see the benefits of doing it though, once you are dead, you are dead right?

The two questions that stuck out to me were 3 and 14. Now obviously I can't give you a concrete answer to these, but I recently watched a documentary that may help. The documentary was called DMT: The Spirit Molecule. In short, DMT is a super psychedelic drug that can induce intense hallucinations and out of body or near death experiences. The strange thing about DMT is that it is a naturally occurring neurotransmitter that exists in just about every living thing. It is said to be released in massive amounts in birth, dreams, and yes even death. It's hard to explain exactly what happens when DMT is released so here is a link to some info and testimonials from people who have experienced DMT. Hope this helps!
