There are over 70 documented cases of transplant patients experiencing the same thoughts and feelings as their organ donors did in life. People report everything from craving the donors’ favorite foods, to inheriting their talents. It’s posed a theory that the cells in our body can store memories. Source

I just realize I can do “no talking” for days. Especially when I am upset. I’ll just grunt, sigh. No fuckin syllable. And then I’ll start to forget how to speak because my mouth is so damn lazy. I’d stutter and develop the longest communication gap.
The thing is, it is never so quiet in my head. I wish I could just concentrate for 15 minutes or so. Shut down all those thoughts. But I keep getting distracted.
I notice this and I’ve trying to make video journals. Me talking. Because writing is, writing is, sometimes I’d think too much before I pour my honest thoughts into sentences.
But every single time, every single goddamn time I recorded myself I’d move the angle a bit so I couldn’t see what’s behind my back. I always got this sheer feeling that I wasn’t alone. I have never been and never will be. And it instantly makes me uncomfortable.

Healing doesn’t mean the damage never existed. It means the damage no longer controls our life.

JACK THE RIPPER IDENTITY FINALLY REVEALED AFTER 126 YEARS THANKS TO DNA EVIDENCE
DNA evidence has uncovered the identity of Jack The Ripper, and it’s none of the romantic suspects – such as the Queen’s surgeon Sir William Gull, or artist Walter Sickert.
The most infamous serial killer in history has been identified as a relatively underwhelming Polish madman called Aaron Kosminski, who was committed to a mental asylum at the height of the Ripper hysteria.
Kosminski was actually a suspect at the time of the murders, even named by Chief Inspector Donald Swanson in notes the policemen made, but as the myth and legend of the murders grew over more than 125 years, so too did the list of more fanciful suspects.
The breakthrough came when a scientist, using cutting-edge technology, matched DNA evidence on a shawl found at one of the crime scenes with descendants of Kosminski.
Dr Jari Louhelainen, a Finnish expert in historic DNA, was brought in to study a shawl found with Catherine Eddowes, the second-last ‘confirmed’ victim of the Ripper, whose body was discovered in Mitre Square on September 30.
Dr Louhelainen is quoted as saying: ‘It has taken a great deal of hard work, using cutting-edge scientific techniques which would not have been possible five years ago.
‘Once I had the profile, I could compare it to that of the female descendant of Kosminski’s sister, who had given us a sample of her DNA swabbed from inside her mouth.
‘The first strand of DNA showed a 99.2 per cent match, as the analysis instrument could not determine the sequence of the missing 0.8 per cent fragment of DNA. On testing the second strand, we achieved a perfect 100 per cent match.’
