Interesting Reflexes

Yesterday I almost hit a car, and no I wasn't driving. You're wondering how a pedestrian can hit a car? simple the pedestrian just needs to be equally absent minded. I was crossing the street and after the car passed me slowly, I started to cross and I hit the tires with my shoe. It didn't hurt or anything, but I involuntarily pulled my leg back, which got me thinking about the interesting topic of Reflexes. You know, hitting your knee with a hammer gets your leg to move forward? What? it is interesting?!

So I wikied for reflexes and kept on reading and then I came across an intriguing piece of info, some human reflexes are only available in infants! As we grow up we 'lose' those reflexes. The grasp reflex in infants mean they usually grasp with very strong grip to anything put in their hands. The hand-to-mouth reflex however means infants tend to place anything in their hand in their mouth. This got me thinking about the immense practical-joke possibilities if those reflexes stuck around until we're annoying 8-year olds. For example:

Grasp reflex:
1.Place massive roach in dude's hand...and CRACK!
2.Place sleeping dude's hand around his balls...and OUTCH! (nice, han?)

Hand-to-mouth reflex:
1.Place slimy disgusting worm in dude's hand. (do you think it would taste like spaghetti?)
2.Place piece of poo in dude's hand. (mmmmmm....pooo)

Oh and don't get me started on the sucking reflex... too many mental images.

WTF ??? it brings to light adel imam in shahid mashfsh haga.


Wish men noah el HALoof
Darabnee be wisho ala eedee ya be.

here the pedestrian always has right of way regardless.

A true reflex is actually a closed circuit loop of muscle and nerve that bypasses the brain completely.
Thats why its the fastest form of reaction.

example, when the doctor hits you on the knee, and you naturally kick him.

I had my dairy supplement through a bottle until well into primary school. You realllllly don't wanna know what that did to the Hand-to-Mouth reflex ! *sigh*

Feshfesh said...

Zerocool, I always wanted to hit a doctor in the nuts as a "natural" reflex... is there any way to stimulate this kicking reflex without him touching my knee (pls reference previous post)?

Embee, I am listening....

embee said...

Too many vivid blackmailing incidents ya Fesh. I learned to keep my lips are sealed - metaphorically and physically :P

Feshfesh said...

hehehehehehehe.. I feel you bruder :D

SaRaH said...

LOL.. I am real glad that these reflexes went away I would rather do what I want cause I want not cause I have to as for the sucking reflex..mmmmmm

Imagine about gripping something and not let it go no matter what.. Man these can go on forever..

Cheers

Has anyone else noticed how Fesh called babies "dude"????

ZeRoCoOl said...

MDs are usually spineless ergo they lack nuts ................

*Fesh turns into Jade's 5th grade English teacher

No, No, No... you have NOT been paying attention AGAIN LittleJade. In this brilliant piece of writing Lord Fesh actually is exploring the idea that infant reflexes will continue to happen to us as children... Then he lists some practical joke ideas (which are brilliant by the way) that might be applied by 8-year olds to other 8-year olds. Hence, in this context Lord Fesh meant an annoying 8-year old by 'dude'.

Zerocool, are you saying you are invincible to IronClaw?

*Fesh puts on his Pirate Claw and eagerly awaits to take a swing at Zerocool

ZeRoCoOl said...

I said usually there are exceptions.....last I checked I still have my spine and my ehm ehm...

Feshfesh said...

hehehehehehehehe... damn it, but I wanted to use the IronClaw I got off eBay!

embee said...

The makers of IronClaw strongly advise to limit its use by those who touch themselves 5 times a day !

Watch out ya Fesh :P

I Touch Myself Lyrics


I love myself
I want you to love me
When I'm feelin' down
I want you above me
I search myself
I want you to find me
I forget myself
I want you to remind me

Chorus:
I don't want anybody else
When I think about you
I touch myself
I don't want anybody else
Oh no, oh no, oh no

You're the one who makes me happy honey
You're the sun who makes me shine
When you're around I'm always laughing
I want to make you mine

I close my eyes
And see you before me
Think I would die
If you were to ignore me
A fool could see
Just how much I adore you
I get down on my knees
I'd do anything for you

Chorus

I love myself
I want you to love me
When I'm feelin' down
I want you above me
I search myself
I want you to find me
I forget myself
I want you to remind me

Chorus

I want you
I don't want anybody else
And when I think about you
I touch myself
Ooh, oooh, oooooh, aaaaaah

Chorus

Note referencing embee's comment !!!!



Dl it's really catchy :DDD

embee said...

Too late for that ya ZC :P

Reputations tend to stick you know !

ZeRoCoOl said...

Sorry for the prepubescent humor fesh I hope you don't mind :DDDDDDDD

Feshfesh said...

*Fesh is humming to his new favorite track..

I touch myself...Ooh, oooh, oooooh, aaaaaah...

embee said...

Btw, there's a cover of the songie by Genitorturers.. Sounds much neater than the original :P

NileGirl said...

Holy shit you guys are hilarious and psychotic. But I already knew that about Fesh...

I questioned the dude reference too! I don't think 8 years old qualify as dude's yet. To be a dude you have to have at least hit puberty.

Feshfesh said...

*Fesh blushes*

Jade said...

LOL - Pardon me Lord Fesh for not paying close attention.... I need a couple of classes to improve my English - won't you be my teacher? If I make another mistake again, I'll let you spank me - until I master the art of concentration... hm?

On another note - you guys are hysterical... NG - dont you just love it when the boys get all gay on each other?

Feshfesh said...

*ahm*...so about the spanking bit, does it necessarily needed to be because of another mistake?... what man I'm just asking! :D
