    I think my husband is ESFx, so between that and cultural and religious difference, it is amazing we've held on so long (mostly for our kids). Do you have kids?
    This forum is a blessing & a curse because more thinkers here, but also a lot of negativity. Why do you post here - isn't it at least partially human connection and communication?

    Interesting life. I prefer country too. I still think everyone craves connection with others. You're married - that's a major life-impacting relationship. I've been married 16 years, but we each need other connections. And can't you relate with not always relating with your spouse? I appreciate friendships - even if I also consider myself a loner in the sense that there is nobody I trust enough to depend on in all ways.

    NYC cynic? City life made you hard? I believe we all crave connection - I do, that's partly why I'm on this forum. Btw-I lived in Flemington, NJ - beautiful area and nothing like the ugly rap NJ gets. Have you been out in the country lately - Catskills?

    I wish they would've - one girl seemed intent. Haven't you met strangers that came to be friends, even intimate relationship? Why cringe? I'll be a little forward in sharing my impression of your comments. You seem to assume the worst of people and maybe assume others see that about you, so as you communicate, it's as if with a shield up and a voice changer used. . Partly kidding, partly serious.

    I don't think that's rude, but not everyone's like you. Some people want to meet new people even under awkward circumstances. Often generations and countless descendents are created from such a simple gesture as exploring a simple invitation.

    Some of them did that. I can see your point about not owing a stranger extended attention, yet maybe in their minds they were assuming the best, not the worst. Yes, there are some people who narcisistically demand too much, but even so, being kind is more healthy for both than being rude.

    Being polite and kind is "lame"?

    FYI ...

     
    Red-Headed Neanderthals

    Ancient DNA has been used to show aspects of Neanderthal appearance. A fragment of the gene for the melanocortin 1 receptor (MRC1) was sequenced using DNA from two Neanderthal specimens from Spain and Italy, El Sidrón 1252 and Monte Lessini (Lalueza-Fox et al. 2007). Neanderthals had a mutation in this receptor gene that has not been found in modern humans. The mutation changes an amino acid, making the resulting protein less efficient. Modern humans have other MCR1 variants that are also less active resulting in red hair and pale skin. The less active Neanderthal mutation probably also resulted in red hair and pale skin, as in modern humans.

    The specific MCR1 mutation in Neanderthals has not found in modern humans (or occurs extremely rarely in modern humans). This indicates that the two mutations for red hair and pale skin occurred independently and does not support the idea of gene flow between Neanderthals and modern humans. Pale skin may have been advantageous to Neanderthals living in Europe because of the ability to synthesize vitamin D.

    ... in other words, red hair in modern humans (very likely) wasn't inherited from neandertals.
