Every man knows that moment of clear thinking that occurs directly after ejaculation. What is going on in our brains that causes this to happen?

As levels of sexual arousal and pleasure get closer to orgasm, activity in the frontal lobe of the brain (basically, the part of your brain involved in complex thought) decreases due to the dual activity of adrenaline and pleasure chemicals, reaching a point of almost nothing at the moment of orgasm. In most men, the pleasurable sensations drop off within seconds of ejaculation, and the frontal lobe switches back on like a light.

While you don’t really notice the gradual drop in frontal lobe functioning because you’re “in the moment”, you’re a lot more likely to notice it coming back both because it comes back a lot faster than it goes, and you’re probably done having intercourse or masturbating at that point.

What does it feel like to murder someone?

Without a doubt this is probably the most personal question I think I could ever answer. This is a question I have been asking myself for a very long time now, and just coming to grips with the answers I have found. To say my answer is complex, and that I am going to have difficulties expressing exactly how I have felt, and still feel about murdering someone, is an understatement. 
            
I guess the beginning would be the best place to start. When I took another man’s life I was just nineteen years old. Looking back now, I can honestly say I felt immense peer pressure to go through with the murder. I felt like I would be seen as a weak punk if I let another man get over on me. I was a drug dealer, and I felt I had a reputation to uphold. I can see all this now, but at the time I could see none of this. I realize now I was in a very bad place in life. I was in the midst of a serious drug addiction. I felt worthless and unworthy of love, so in return I placed little value on my life or on the life of anyone else. All of these feelings made me feel so powerless in life, I lashed out.
            
My lashing out cost another human his life. I am ashamed to admit it, but at the time I felt a great weight was lifted off my shoulders when I pulled the trigger. I felt like I had finally stood up for myself. I was completely irrational. I realize now it is like my friend David Monroe always says, “hurt people, hurt people.” I was really hurting and I didn’t know how to ask for help.
            
I continued to justify my actions for a long time, but somewhere deep inside I have always known that there was never any justice in taking someone’s life. Admitting to myself I was feeling scared, lonely, unworthy of love and respect was just too hard. Also, by admitting these feelings, I would also have to come to grips with what I really did, and how I affected the world. This was a hard prospect for me, but I am finally there over fifteen years later.
            
Now I feel sadness over murdering someone. I feel I have robbed my victim’s family of the most precious thing in life. I feel immense sorrow for this. I feel I have robbed my family out of truly ever knowing me. I feel like I have created fear in my community. I feel that I have done the world a great disservice, and that I owe a debt that I can never fully repay. I am full of guilt and shame over my actions. I never want anyone else to feel the way I do.

Whats the catch in buying these homes that apparently costs “less than $100” in Detroit?

These houses are in poor conditions in area of the city where nobody lives. Most people think “poor condition” and think how bad could they be?

These houses are the types that require $10,000 in plumbing wok just to have running water in the house. another $8,000 to have electric. $15,000 to replace the roof. Every window in the house needs to be replaced because they are broken or missing. No working HVAC system. Most have water and/or mold damage issues.

You have to fix all of these problems before you start to even think about carpeting or repainting or anything cosmetic.

What do Muslim Extremists Want from the West? 

Though it varies a bit from group to group, the general idea is this.

Radical Muslims essentially believe they are fighting a defensive war, the only type of war Islam permits. They claim that the West has been colonizing, exploiting, and supporting oppressive regimes in the Middle East for centuries, and that such actions justify a violent response from Muslims who are sick of it.

As we know, the key to any great con, is having one part of it being true. In this case, the West IS guilty of exploiting/colonizing the Muslim world for centuries, and these actions do engender natural violent response.

Of course, Extremists take it further, by claiming that all Muslim governments that cooperate with these Western powers also deserve to be destroyed. That all Muslims who don’t join their struggle are “against them”, and deserve to be killed. That all citizens who live in Western countries are guilty of the destruction caused by their governments, because we pay taxes and vote for them.

In short, Muslim extremists have taken a VERY popular idea in Islam (resisting oppression), and twisted it into a “us against them” mentality that justifies anything.

Why do hangovers get worse as you age?

Alcohol metabolism is a two-step process in the liver, where enzymes first break the alcohol down into acetaldehyde. Acetaldehyde is highly toxic – between 10 and 30 times more toxic than alcohol itself. The enzymes in your liver are next tasked with breaking down the acetaldehyde further, into a non-toxic substance called acetate. But your liver can only metabolize about one drink per hour – so if you’re drinking more quickly than that, not all of the acetaldehyde gets broken down. In that case, the acetaldehyde is released into the blood stream to wreak havoc around your body, resulting in the awful feelings associated with a hangover.
The liver capacity to cope with the toxicity of acetaldehyde decreases as we get older. Acetaldehyde is directly detoxified in the liver by an antioxidant called glutathione. As age increases, glutathione generation capacity is decreased, so cells may not be recovered or repaired rapidly.

Why do we perceive time going by quicker as we get older?

When you are 1 year old one year constitutes the entirety of your life. When you are 2 years old one year is half your life. So just in sheer numbers every year becomes a proportionally smaller part of your life as you age.

Also things seem to speed up because your brain is more likely to store novel memories. As you age you experience level increases and the rate at which you encounrter entirely new situations drops. So you end up having fewer novel encounters and formulate correspondently fewer memories.

Did we stop natural selection by keeping everyone alive? Or is it part of evolution? Is it meant for us to do this?

“Meant for us to do” is kind of a loaded term. Evolution and natural selection don’t really have an endgoal. What we’re “meant” to do, from an evolutionary perspective, is make more of us. Nothing more, nothing less. If keeping everyone alive makes more of us, then that’s what we’re meant to do. If we make too many and the environment can’t handle us, we’ll starve until we’re back below our limit.

As for whether nature will get sick of us, that’s assigning some kind of agency to nature that doesn’t really exist. Nature doesn’t “get sick” of species. Things either adapt and survive or they die out. Nature doesn’t care how they do it. There are several forces that oppose survival, such as changing environments, diseases, lack of resources, etc. Humans are unusual in that we’ve been able to assert a lot of control over many of these opposing forces. We can eradicate diseases. We can farm, which allows more people to live on less resources. We can create tools to allow us to survive in harsh environments. We can pass exact knowledge down to future generations. Even though we do things that are detrimental to our environment, we can predict the changes and create a means to survive the new environment. Every species up to this point has relied on genetic mutation to adapt. Humans, on the other hand, rely on engineering, which provides solutions in months and years rather than generations. I hate to sound like I’m making more of humanity than it deserves, but from an evolutionary perspective, we really are a tough species to beat.
