Urban Dictionary
A real language that girls use to tell each other things so boys won't know what they're saying.
No, Tink, "gibberish" is actually the correct spelling.

And I wouldn't rely on the "urban dictionary" too much for anything else, either.

Oh To Energy and Vitamin D...One can get an overdose of it...Is that when one could puke bile?
Sure of it if not that one can grow sick of it...
Ethnic differences[edit]
Possible ethnic differences in physiological pathways for ingested vitamin D, such as the Inuit, may confound across the board recommendations for vitamin D levels. Inuit compensate for lower production of vitamin D by converting more of this vitamin to its most active form.[42] The Inuit have relatively high rates of esophageal cancer and there are ethnic differences in the metabolism of vitamin D between Caucasians and Inuit.[42][43] A Toronto study of young Canadians of diverse ancestry applied a standard of serum 25(OH)D levels that was significantly higher than official recommendations.[44][45] These levels were described to be 75 nmol/L as "optimal", between 75 nmol/L and 50 nmol/L as "insufficient" and < 50 nmol/L as "deficient". 22% of individuals of European ancestry had 25(OH)D levels less than the 40 nmol/L cutoff, comparable to the values observed in previous studies (40nmol/L is 15 ng/mL). 78% of individuals of East Asian ancestry and 77% of individuals of South Asian ancestry had 25(OH)D concentrations lower than 40 nmol/L. The East Asians in the Toronto sample had low 25(OH)D levels when compared to whites. Vitamin D deficiency is highly prevalent in China and occurred in more than 40% of adolescent girls in winter.[35] In a Chinese population at particular risk for esophageal cancer and with the high serum 25(OH)D concentrations have a significantly increased risk of the precursor lesion.[16]
Studies on the South Asians population uniformly point to low 25(OH)D levels, despite abundant sunshine.[46] Rural men around Delhi average 44nmol/L. Healthy Indians seem have low 25(OH)D levels which are not very different from healthy South Asians living in Canada. South Indian patients with ischemic heart disease have serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D3 levels which are above 222.5 nmol/l and considered extremely high.[25] Measuring melanin content to assess skin pigmentation showed an inverse relationship with serum 25(OH)D.[44] The uniform occurrence of very low serum 25(OH)D in Indians living in India and Chinese in China does not support the hypothesis that the low levels seen in the more pigmented are due to lack of synthesis from the sun at higher latitudes. A study of French Canadians found that a significant minority did not maximize ingested serum 25(OH)D for genetic reasons; vitamin D-binding protein polymorphisms explained as much of the variation in circulating 25(OH)D as did total ingestion of vitamin D.[47][48] Oral vitamin D intake is lower in Europe than both North America and Scandinavia.[13][49]

SO to that other comment in death we aprt and all..
Part I mean apart from mental physical qualities? E...
Equalities doesn't mean one is equal and to self in center...
RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!
Hey Tinka. How are you?

It may take me a bit to digest all this, but I think I agree that equality does not mean equal. The self in the center pays what it wants to know or to find equilibrium in relation, all things being equal.

The driving DOG would he pass from passing a mail man would that be a shock to the dog?
I don't know if the other dogs cared for the driving one, maybe...
Would they attack the mail man if the dog truly passed? I think they would do that forget the barking...
They snuff the guy..:)
I bet at least one of the dogs would bark just by passing by the mail guy...
What kind of Van is it? Are they all seated what would they do if a cop stopped them?
I heard that the cop stopped them for disturbing the peace and they were driving a WEGO that's the YUGO minivan. The cop handed the driver a warning ticket and they sheepishly drove off and a trucker reported that he seen them barking as they drove by the post office and on out of town. ;)

<quoted text> Guess! now listen to foolish logic and conclusion. What brought about that universe? how did it came into form? many of these questions and our cycles on earth, proves the existence of a creator.
Are you now saying that the universe is not evidence of the universe? How about something more simple, are bananas evidence of bananas? Still to hard for you?

As to how it became, we don’t know. That means you don’t know either but rather than admitting that before 10^-34th of a second after the event there were no laws to even allow thought, instead you say “doh we don’t know so it must be my god wot dunnit”..,. scratches aSS and then says “Yeah dat sounds right, duuumm, I used to be really fick until I fort ov dat one”

So you are yet another who does not want to understand quantum physics. Your deliberate ignorance is noted.

No god is required, no cause is required and if you understood even basic 101 quantum physics you would understand this fact.
