    Hi @Blitzgreen! Welcome to scope online community :) How are you today?

    I love learning new things all the time as well, what's a recent new thing you learned that you found interesting?

    For me it's recent research that streets that have a lot of perceived "obstacles" are actually safer. Road-side parking, not-straight, islands or traffic control measures. They all slow the driver down to take the route more carefully than a road that is entirely straight, as the driver then feels "safer" to drive at speed when it's actually more dangerous.
    They/Them, however they are no wrong pronouns with me so whatever you feel most comfortable with

    I am very good today thanks. 

    Something I learned recently that's interesting to me is about insulin resistance and how insulin works. Several years ago I read that in ancient times humans only ate once a day and with western traditions and social and marketing engineering, we ended up eating 3 meals a day which is very bad for insulin levels, yes it keeps your energy level high over time, insulin spikes every time you eat and then years later you develop insulin resistance. Less exercise or using of the insulin for energy speeds up the process of resistance, which is a common sign of pre diabetic. Eating once a day we call intermittent fasting but fasting is an important part of maintenance of the digestive system. 

    My guess is that we consume too much that prevents maintance of the body and leads to at shorter lifespan and preventable diseases, that companies profit from keeping us confused by the amount of conflicting diet/weight loss advice.
