In the fourth book of Stephanie Meyer's world famous book series Twilight, the character Jacob--a hunky boy who turns wolf when he's angry-- imprints on the daughter of his best friend and almost lover, Bella Swan. In the 1930s, a similar real-life thing happened to scietist Konrad Lorenz while he was studying geese. He accidentally allowed the newly-hatched goslings to imprint on him--they began to follow him everywhere. His Nobel Prize winning work allowed us to understand that goslings become attached to the first big object/person they see. I guess I just never realized before now that this kind of stuff actually happens in real life. It made for an excellent read--I'll tell ya that!
My favorite post was huss0182's in writing #2 because I appreciated how he used the scientific principles to explain how paranormal activity is a pseudoscience. I also really like the use of a video--it really got me interested. The topic in itself was also very interesting. I saw the movie "Paranormal Activity 1" recently and thought it truly scary at the time but completely ureplicable and unfalsifiable.
My next favorite was sunxx592's in writing #1 due to the very catchy title--it was an Ernest Hemingway quote which I happen to be familiar with. The content written about--Nature vs Nurture was very well explained and they asked some very good questions to ponder about as I went throughout my day.
My third favorite was corr0147's in writing #3 because of the very attractive title of "A Voice With No Words." I was immediately drawn to this and the content of the blog continued to hold my attention throughtout as well. The question posed at the end of the blog was also very thoughtful.
