3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
Whilst flicking through Tumblr this morning, obviously you stumble across the odd sexual GIF animation and I noted with interest that there's still a "response" down there, but not a particularly useful one - I get a "semi" that never manifests into an actual full-on boner and dies literally within a minute of being born.
My research is fully congruent with my experience - that though the sexual reflex remains healthy, the cells at the base of the penis controlling blood flow and hence erections do not fully respond to the nerve and hormonal signals they get - a purely physiological malfunction. They need a lot more "persuasion" to follow through, either physical by continual stimulation or chemical from Viagra.
Though most men would be profoundly embarrassed by all this, my introspective scientific mind finds this oddly fascinating, observing the ageing process from within. However I am a lot more upset if having actually initiated lovemaking I'm unable to follow through. Now I've mastered how and when to take the magic blue tablets, this will not happen in future. I'm fortunate that this and long-sightedness, the other nuisance of ageing, can in this day-and-age be easily got round.
Other ageing symptoms noted are balding, greying (but not yet on body hair) the decline of the ability to perform tasks subconsciously and the failure to recall names. This latter nuisance is also oddly fascinating. I meet or recall people I know perfectly well, often whom I have known for years, but the name has gone!! It's as if the name is stored in a separate and less reliable place in the mind from all the other memories about the person, which are kept in a more primal and robust place.
Amused, Higher Consciousness looks on...

7. NOW THAT'S FUNNY!
Because the movie Halloween (1978) was made on such a small budget, they had to use the cheapest mask they could find for the character Michael Meyers, which turned out to be a William Shatner Star Trek mask. Shatner initially didn’t know the mask was in his likeness, but when he found out years later, he said he felt honoured.
9. ZEN WISDOM
The worst mistake you can make is to give up on yourself and stop challenging yourself for fear of failure. Keep moving forward with a firm eye on the future, telling yourself, “I’ll start from today!” “I’ll start afresh from now, from this very moment!”
