So I wanted to draw this little reference to show the difference between different members of the corvidae family. It sort of got out of hand… And now I think wings are a huge pain in the ass to draw and I never want to see a bird again.
In a faraway kingdom in the distant and mysterious east there was an endless flat plain. Through this plain ran a single road straight as an arrow. The signpost read “The Road to Enlightenment”. Along this road were a series of stout doors which blocked passage on the road. Each was more sturdy…
Many ancient texts including those from Sumer, Assyria and ancient Egypt speak of the human race as the “human herd”. Now of course all of these peoples had herding animals so that is not too surprising. I recently posted an article about Human Accelerated Regions in human DNA. These are regions…
1) Know your limits.
- The tag limit. Only the first 5 tags you put in a post are searchable.
- The search limit. Only the first 200 posts under a tag show up when you search that tag.
- The posting limit. You can post or reblog no more than 250 posts a day, and only 75 of them can be photos. The day ends at midnight EST.
- The friending limit. As many people discovered during the Mishapocalypse, you can only friend between 250-300 people on Tumblr in a day.
- The queue limit. The queue can only hold 300 posts at one time.
- The ask limit. You can only send 10 asks within a single hour, and only 5 of them can be anonymous.
2) Keep Tumblr from truncating long text posts.
Tumblr’s default behavior when reblogging long text posts is to reblog them as links instead. To make sure long posts get reblogged as text—or to truncate them if you only want to link to a shorter text post—go to the top right corner of the post and click the icon next to your settings. The drop-down menu will give you the option to change the format of the post. If you have a text post, clicking “Reblog as text” will retain the text of the post up until its original “read more” line.
3) You don’t need to insert a blank .gif at the bottom of your photosets in order to show full-sized photos. There’s already a workaround for this. Just go to your settings, select the Dashboard, and click “show full-size photos.”
4) Allow anyone to reply to any of your posts directly from the dash. For reasons no one can fathom, replying to people on Tumblr is a tricky thing. Sometimes you can’t reply until you’ve had someone friended longer than two weeks. Sometimes you can’t reply with photos. It’s a strange world. But one thing is certain: sticking a “?” in your post will cause the message, “Let people answer this” to appear. Check the box and profit.
5) tumblr.com/photos lets you see a mosaic of photos on your dash. Try it and be amazed.
6) Filter your dash by type by using “/show/[mediatype]”. Appending “/show/text” to tumblr.com will let you see only the text posts on your dash. This also works for photos, links, quotes, audio, chats, and videos.

On Monday, May 6th, 2013, in5d Radio’s special guests were our callers as we talked about introverts and extroverts, along with the Top 10 Introvert Myths.
If you’re not sure whether you’re an introvert or an extrovert, you can click HERE and take the Briggs Myers test, which is approximately 70 questions. At the end of the questionnaire, you will be issued 4 letters, which tell you your personality type. The first letter will be either an I (Introvert) or an E (Extrovert).
Although introverts only compromise 25% of the general population, the statistics are seemingly reversed within the spiritual and metaphysical genres. Through my own research, I’ve found that between 70-80%+ of people who are involved in the field of spirituality or metaphysics are introverts, as we tend to look within for answers versus the need to look to exterior sources.
Next week, May 13th, 2013, our special guest will be Jim Dellicolli, also known as PantherJim1995 on YouTube as we will be talking about current and upcoming astrological alignments and how they play into our spiritual evolution.

I wrote this list in late-2008. Around that time, I was lucky enough to discover a book called, The Introvert Advantage (How To Thrive in an Extrovert World), by Marti Laney, Psy.D. It felt like someone had written an encyclopedia entry on a rare race of people to which I belong. Not only had it explained many of my eccentricities, it helped me to redefine my entire life in a new and productive context.
Sure, anyone who knows me would say, “Duh! Why did it take you so long to realize you’re an Introvert?” It’s not that simple. The problem is that labeling someone as an Introvert is a very shallow assessment, full of common misconceptions. It’s more complex than that.
A section of Laney’s book (page 71 through page 75) maps out the human brain and explains how neuro-transmitters follow different dominant paths in the nervous systems of Introverts and Extroverts. If the science behind the book is correct, it turns out that Introverts are people who are over-sensitive to Dopamine, so too much external stimulation overdoses and exhausts them. Conversely, Extroverts can’t get enough Dopamine, and they require Adrenaline for their brains to create it. Extroverts also have a shorter pathway and less blood-flow to the brain. The messages of an Extrovert’s nervous system mostly bypass the Broca’s area in the frontal lobe, which is where a large portion of contemplation takes place.
Unfortunately, according to the book, only about 25% of people are Introverts. There are even fewer that are as extreme as I am. This leads to a lot of misunderstandings, since society doesn’t have very much experience with my people. (I love being able to say that.)
So here are a few common misconceptions about Introverts (not taken directly from the book, but based on my own life experience):
