I find memories feel more sharper if there is a sense of smell attached to them.

This is actually scientifically proven. You easily remember something if that something is linked somehow to a smell or vice versa (you remember a smell if its linked to a memory). This is why its said that if you're preparing for an exam you should spam a certain smell in your room because if you managedto "link" that smell with what you're studying, you'll have an easier time in remembering the exam stuff if you can picture/"smell" the smell while in the exam.

I find music makes some memories sharper. Or rather the music brings back memories from when I first listened to it.

Yeah. My 2016 and 2017 top songs on Spotify really reveal a different life of mine. Days of high school - both bad and good, teen angst, in love but scared.

Can confirm that. There's a religious song I was listening to way back in 2009/2010. Anytime I listen to it now, I remember the 6th Grade days. Not only that, I even remember at least one documentary show I was watching on NatGeo back then (Dangerous Encounters for those wondering). I remember almost everything that happened back then simply by listening to that one song. Also, the Quran when "played" by a particular guy instantly reminds me of PlayStation Quake II. Just merely thinking of the guy's voice makes me remember the days of me playing that game.

 

The human brain is weird.

Music and smells have been some of the most powerful tools of recollection to me, and the process is nothing short of fascinating. A song could pop into my head almost entirely at random, a song I haven't heard in well over ten years. I'll find it and listen to it and there'll be this internal clash of the person I was when I first heard/liked it and the person I am now. I'll notice different things, hear things I hadn't before, regardless of whether or not I even like the song anymore.

Well, I’m back to my original username on this site. I’m ThatBenGuy just like when I first came here! :D To all my friends on this site, I apologize for not being very active lately. As I’ve said before, I’m currently taking the optician program in college. With that being said, I can only be so active as it’s a lot of work. So far, I’m liking it. I’m liking it a great deal. :)

Yeah. I heard he’s busy with college too. I’m sure the whole forums are probably thinking “Wow! It usually isn’t like either of them to be inactive for this long!” lol

Well at the very least Algonquin has finally decided having his crowning achievement in life being known as that weirdo GTA IV stan ain't gonna impress the ladies and is now going to make something of himself. Long overdue! 

 

I kid, I kid. The GTA section ain't the same without that chap.

Haven't ranted about Skyrim for years so here it comes: been trying to use Nemesis (a mod) for who knows how long, always got greeted by the "api-ms-runtime" issue. Finally fixed that. Launches Nemesis. What greets me? "The Application was unable to start correctly. Click OK to close." F*ck you.

 

Wonder if "installing" the game on my laptop and running Nemesis from there would work.....

Use Fores New Idles (FNIS). Unless you're using 360 movement behaviour it's much more seamless and refined for most animation mods.

I've been drinking a lot of sparkling water lately but I'll be damned if it isn't making me fart a lot more.

Not if you have Combat Gameplay Overhaul. Besides, I hate FNIS because reasons. Even I don't know why I hate it :lol:

 

Apparently even after getting the "missing files" issue fixed I still can't open/launch neither Nemesis or even Nifskope 2.0, the f*ck?

Trust me on this one.  Honest...  I really only buy gadgets that I think I'll use for the long haul.  For instance; I can't live without my foodsaver.   We must be on our 3rd or 4th one.

 

Anyway.  Get a Soda Stream.   I'm not kidding.  I just refilled 2 canisters of Co2 today.  It costs around $15 to refill a canister and a canister lasts me a couple of months.

 

I live on sparking water.  Plus I make a super good homemade ginger ale.  Really...sparking water is great for everything.  Fill a glass and just toss in a splash of juice and there you have it...a super healthy soda.

 

Serious.  Spend the 70 bucks for the starter kit and you'll be happy.

I have been thinking about it, honestly. I was reminded of such devices when I was listening to a podcast of all things and remembered the Soda Stream movement that happened here in the UK briefly. I've slowly been buying more and more bottles and most people could do with drinking more water, myself included. My wife hates the stuff, she says it tastes like television static.

 

I will look into buying one though, I think it'd be a sound investment. Better than that coffee pod machine thing she bought was anyway, it went the same way most kitchen gadgets go - used daily for about two weeks before being neglected completely.

Sparkling water is disgusting, I think she's right. But soft drinks make me burp.

Don't get me wrong, I understand why people dislike it. I don't tend to drink fizzy drinks as a rule, though I might treat myself to the occasional Dr. Pepper. The thing about sparkling water is it is only lightly carbonated, which suits me fine. I'm not able to burp, at least not on purpose, I must burp about four or five times a year and it's usually by complete accident. I've never been able to burp, so any trapped gas usually stays there until my body decides to do something with it or it makes a gentle journey to my anus.

I'm not a soda drinker.  I stopped all (chain) fast food and soda when I was 12 for a combo of reasons (a 12 year old might come up with).   I say I'm not a soda drinker but aside from my ginger ale I occasionally make a cherry syrup, and a vanilla syrup.   The thing is I get to control the sugar and what not.  When I taste a Canada Dry Ginger Ale it tastes like pure sugary syrup...totally gross.

 

 

Water is good for you and jazzing it up with bubbles makes it seem special.  Toss in some natural flavors and...tadah!

 

Oh oh oh...and with a soda stream you get to control how much carbonation.  

 

How can anyone not like carbonated drinks?  And unflavored carbonated water?  It's not like an offensive tonic water or something.  It's just water!

 

*honest - seriously proud of my (took years to perfect)  ginger ale recipe and have been tempted to make a yt of it.

I like carbonated drinks, just not plain, unflavoured carbonated water. It's like a bizzarre bitter/sour taste to me. If you mix in some fruit juice then it's enjoyable. I've not had a coke or anything else sugary for years.

I got a sodastream I don't use. I bought the cherry cola syrup that sh*t tasted gross never again. Maybe it was because I used tap water instead of filtered water.

I can drink plain seltzer water no problem I just have to be in the mood for it.

It was because you used a gross ass syrup trying to replicate a "soda" is my guess. 

 

Honest - sodastream up a bottle of regular water and toss in a splash (and I mean small splash) of real orange juice, grape juice, cranberry...you get the idea.  Always by the glass.  Never mix anything in your bottles...keep them clean and free.

 

We live on spring water here but I use a brita filter and tap water for "my" water.

What is it that you find disgusting about it? Genuine question.  I have been drinking carbonated mineral water all my life because, well, that is the most widely available stuff.
