Very cool story.
On a side note, picked up a "No Kicking Penguins" sticker for the Scoob the other day. . I think it's gonna go on the inside trunklid.
"It is not the critic who counts."
My two cousin's families have 3 children with autism - of varying degrees - from severe to slight - their autism is due to the Fragile X gene - and for the heck of it I had myself tested (you know how families like to blame the other for it) - and as it turns out I carry the Fragile X gene - but I have 92 alleles out of 200 - if I had 50 alleles - I would have no symptoms and would most likely not pass it on, 90-150 (or so) I would not have autistic symptoms - but other stuff like premature ovarian failure, perhaps parkinslike disease symptoms, etc and oh yeah - perhaps dimentia. At 200 alleles - I would have been autistic. It does not skip generations, and it mutates. Effing gene. I'm in a long term study for this by the Institute (Embury) who discovered the gene. So far all I have is that I can't have children due to premature ovarian failure. Which is why I'm in a long term study for memory. Autisism sucks. And so does the Fragile X gene. Oh and the fact that families who had pointed their finger at the other (as it must have come from them) have been given a reality check that "no Mom, it came from your side of the family".
Maybe, but it challenges us to become better human beings
There are known knowns. These are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns. That is to say, there are things that we now know we donít know. But there are also unknown unknowns. These are things we do not know we donít know.
