It might be the other way around. Were to the proteins responsible source from? Head or body.
Like that experiment where they sew a young and old mouse together as a kind of Siamese twin.

The problem here is that, the Bit Torrent trackers insert IP numbers randomly and non randomly, that are not actually connected. These people are then logged as copyright infringes, despite having nothing to do with the tracker. This is not hard to do and does muddy the waters for the know nothing CSI monkeys who think that this is hard evidence of liability or infringement.

The difference is the ideas. The idea of America is being lost. What is leftover when that is gone is just another place. May as well be called just Homeland. The ideas that are traditionally associated with America are not espoused by those that use the term Homeland.

In philosophy all things are cherry cheese cake. That's why we use a use an actually useful subset of philosophy called logic.

Anything that's red is cherry cheese cake and is delicious. Any thing that's Delicious can be eaten. Things that can be eaten that are not edible are eaten by looking at them and appreciating there deliciousness and feeding the soul.

You can't prove a negative is not a rule of logic. Go back to school.

Can you prove 2+2 is not equal to 58.
No you can't prove a negative.

Assume 2+2= 58
2= 1+1

1+1+1+1= count them =4
initial assumption is false
2+2 is in fact not equal to 58 negative proved. This is a counter example to the statement "You can't prove a negative"
"You can't prove a negative" is false


Yes you can make general statements that are true.
"All general statements are false" is not a rule of logic. Go back to school.

"2+2 is always equal to 4". Is a general statement.
1+1+1+1=count them =4
4=4 true
The particular general statement "2+2 is always equal to 4" is true. "2+2 is always equal to 4" is a counter example to "All general statements are false".
"All general statements are false" is, in fact, its self false.

Any programming language is at its best before it is implemented and used.
