I don’t usually play video games that often anymore, but the new Zelda has me legitimately excited.
I’d love to go to Mexico City one day, rent a boat, and do this.

Reflecting on how I still haven’t celebrated my birthday, I dug up this study from last year that suggests that there is indeed a connection between time of year we are born and our behavior/personality - and in lab experiments, it was found to have affect at a genetic and neural level.
The researchers once and for all prove that Cancers are super awesome. Just kiddin’…they claim that biological clocks have a seasonal imprint given the time of year we, or at least mice are born (and the sun/light plays a part in this, but I didn’t see any mention of locations that may get more or less and how that would play into the theory). This then turns to influence our gene expression and neuron life cycles and even circadian-influenced neurobehavioral disorders, thereby effecting our personalities both near birth as well as late in life. And that’s last year’s news you didn’t hear about.
This one’s not really my style, but I’m digging it.0 plays
