Let me start by saying that every time I type your name it comes out as "UncaYummy" and I have to go back and change it. I appreciate this Forum and all the input I receive here. Well, I want to test my ability on medical information with the IIG, it is the main part of the ability and also its observations are the most frequent, of most interest to me, and the easiest to attain.

Actually what makes Lactobacillus interesting is that it does not mind being eaten and surrounded by stomach acid because it finds itself in a warm comfortable environment and probably also surrounded by available nutrition. Stomach acid does not dissolve the individual Lactobacillus bacteria and they are unharmed by the stomach environment, at least that is how I see it.

Well I can't choose university based on my personal interests such as the paranormal. I am very happy with my choice of university because it has a very good optical physics department which is rare to come by and I want to work with light.

If I had been on Who Wants To Be A Millionare and I'm on the final, million dollar question, and I have done 50/50 and there are only two options: "Does vasectomy involve an incision, or the removal of tissue?" I would have used all my might, and answered: Incision! That is why I was surprised to observe that tissue had in fact been removed. Very often my observations contradict what my beliefs and assumptions are, and interestingly I have yet never been incorrect in my medical information.

If so it does not account for all of the experiences I've had with this.

I am in a very professional, scientific environment and aim high in a medical, scientific field. I will not disgrace myself by coming across in a way that injures the impression I make. It is alright to have paranormal interests on my spare time, but I choose not to involve these into my dealings with pure and established science. I'd rather have you not believe in me as a paranormal person, than to have my instructors not believe in me as a scientist.

Alright I will share this with you. The first professor I shared this with thought it was very "unusual" although he was objective and did not assume one way or the other and I was happy to have been able to share this with someone, especially someone such as a science professor. The second professor I shared this with expressed tremendous interest and curiosity in knowing more, and let me know that he would be interested in finding out what the results of the tests are. With this professor I discussed my theories as to what the nature of this ability could be. The third professor was very objective and offered a suggestion of how this might be possible, suggesting that I might be picking up on thermal information. He specializes in optical instruments and has great interest in how different species take in information to translate this into understanding of the world. I do not want to involve any of the faculty in my private and somewhat unconventional study. Do they wish to have involvement they will have to take that step not me.

I do not want my university involved in this study because that is not the reason why I attend my university. I take my career and university seriously. No matter how sincere I personally am in my own paranormal experience I must adopt the same perspective on this as the scientific community does. It makes perfect sense to me to do this.

I did worry that my webpage would be too pink for most people, then again I just wanted to have fun with it and to apply a personal touch to it, to use format and color that I like, because it is not a professional page, it is a personal page. You should see my bedroom.

Well Honeybunches I am not here for the attention. I just want a paranormal test and to be here to discuss it with you all. Thanks for all the love.
