I sometimes answer short messages first and leave the longer messages for later when I can answer them properly, in order to be able to do them justice. The longer the message, sometimes the longer the wait. Sometimes I leave more interesting or important messages for later in the same way, so don't misunderstand this as laziness or lack of interest. It is often the opposite! (˘‿˘)
OLDER TEMP: (pending deletion or moving)
In the last few days, at least 3 Deviants have thanked me for a "Watch" when I haven't given one or maybe I have made a few mistakes. I don't know how this happened. But my apologies on behalf of "Wicked Glitch of the West". I have spent many hours in the last few days burning the midnight oil reorganising my faves and friends, so if the "wicked glitches" are my fault, then I sincerely apologise on behalf of myself.
I'm not very good at tags.
LOVES being watched, favourited and commented

IMPORTANT NOTE: The FIRST thing I must say to all my friends on DeviantArt is: If you don't feel good, or you feel unhappy or depressed, check (properly) to find out if you have any amalgam fillings in your teeth. Get them removed (NOT by a standard dentist - drilling into them to remove them would be VERY dangerous). Tell me and I can give you advice on which specialists are "qualified" (i.e.with the knowledge, the belief that mercury is toxic " ", and specialist equipment) to do this safely. (There are NOT many in the world, but they DO exist in the UK and the USA). Do NOT take the word of any dentist (the majority) who tells you that amalgam fillings are safe. They have been given false information on this, so don't blame them TOO much either.
You may find that you feel worse at certain times eg chewing gum or being at the computer screen. Mercury vapour is released from amalgam fillings in large quantities in both cases (by screen magnetism and friction of chewing) etc.
Nothing annoys me more than the public being deliberately lied to or deceived by bullies who have been elected by covert guile.
One of the most bizarre aspects to this is that many people do not realise that ALL amalgam (or "silver") fillings contain about 50% mercury. My question is WHY. Where is honesty and openness, let alone informed consent - that seems to have gone out of the window or out with the trash?
Hi! I'm Dave and I am a trainee trillionaire. I've been training for quite a while! Don't sound too surprised.
CAVEAT: What I tell you about myself is not necessarily in any order of importance or any other order, other than the order in which I write/wrote them here. There may be things of greater, or lesser, importance than what I write here.
I prefer to specialise in knowing things that are generally not known by the general public, because it is less boring and more interesting as well as being highly beneficial. This could lead to dull conversation. I am therefore fortunate to have a very expansive range of interests (I won't say knowledge, as that would be arrogant, misleading and as far as I am concerned, untrue).
If you know more about me than that, great!
I have visited Japan three times so far and Portugal twice in the last 12 months and these are two of my fave places to visit. I've been to many other places, sometimes on holiday. There are plenty of places I have not visited (yet).
I enjoy languages. At the moment I am learning Japanese and Portuguese (mainly Brazilian). I did French to university degree level and I speak Spanish (mainly Mexican and Venezuelan varieties). At school one of my fave subjects was Latin - very long time ago! Although I have a first and a higher degree I was a bit of a "late developer" and I am strongly against children being wrongly judged or graded at too young an age and for the wrong reasons. I am told that my IQ is almost off the scale (in the high 160's) but I don't believe IQ is relevant or too important, in fact it is meaningless without a broad range of intelligence skills, e.g. social and emotional, practical, etc., so I prefer to develop those.
I am interested in butterflies, but also all wildlife. Worldwide, my favourite butterfly by a very long way is the (Eurasian) White Admiral (Limenitis camilla) which is exquisitely and uniquely beautiful in its graceful woodland flight only a matter of inches above the bracken under dappled shade. Fortunately this beautiful creature can still be found in British woodlands as it has not yet been fully "discovered" by unscrupulous government "environment" or transport departments or other assassin developers and greed freaks.
I am interested in Signal Detection Theory, its applications and its application.
I am interested in Forensic Linguistics and Patterns, so if you are, for example, American and say you are Australian or a man and say you're a woman, I might smell a rat, or if you're really clever and get someone to write your journal for you, you'll have to get them to write everything else too and possibly even produce the art for you! hee hee
I enjoy the subject area of Applied Secrets. It is an area of great interest to me and I find it very useful in all aspects of life. I am not however a secretive person and, like most normal people, I get a bit wary, suspicious and untrusting of people who are.
One of my ambitions since I was a young child is to build a school in the UK for disadvantaged children. I also want to spread the word about, and have a lot of knowledge about Narcolepsy. I am aware that Narcolepsy can strike children and teenagers at almost any age. It may be, or often is, mistaken for laziness, or "poor attitude", attention "disorders" and in teenagers and young or older adults, depression or other psychiatric conditions. Narcolepsy is much more common than GPs and Psychiatrists in the UK realise, so much so that only ONE case in ten of young people in the UK who suffer from this condition are diagnosed correctly and of the rest, some may be diagnosed with a psychiatric disorder. This leads to poor performance in School and Social life, to incorrect, inappropriate and dangerous medication and treatment, to bullying, and to a very unfair start in a competitive world. I want this situation to change. So please respond to this Journal and spread the word. A useful routine screening test for narcolepsy hasn't so far been developed, but the HLA-DR2 test can at least show if someone CANNOT have Narcolepsy and can be a starting point for further tests if positive. 25% of the total population test positive for this, but 100% of people with Narcolepsy test positive! So with a negative result, Narcolepsy can be ruled out with certainty. A positive result is much less clear to interpret.
I am vehemently against bullying, both of children and of adults. I believe that secret work is sometimes necessary or essential to deal with bad people, bad groups and bad organisations who themselves act in secret, including Extremely Serious Globally Organised Crime. My idea of bliss is or would be to create outcomes, solutions and situational remedies for people in need of them in any corner of the world I choose without even leaving home.
I remember once being almost in danger of taking myself seriously. Not a good idea!
I believe that whatever the field, a good amateur is usually better than an average professional, and that a person can be capable of being a "good amateur" in more than one area and, depending on the person's abilities, in some cases a large number of areas.
I believe, and have good reasons for doing so, that women will save the world from futile wars and from further destruction of the geosphere, atmosphere, hydrosphere, and biosphere, caused mainly by men, which have almost brought this world to total environmental devastation and which are presently in secretly silenced crisis.
There is an awful lot more to say, some of which I can, some of which I can't and some of which I won't..
BUT: Here's a message I wrote in this Journal in June 2012:
