Sometimes I wet the paper I am writing in with blotches of dampness because of my overactive palmic-sweat glands.
I drew you guys a picture to demonstrate how the sweat glands/ cells in my palm and fingers work.
I suppose it could be rather disturbing on a molecular level.
|Overactive sweat glands|
Sometimes they get like really clammy and cold. My mom calls it the "reptile-hands".
Not too enticing an idea, me thinks.
This is my artistic impression of an overactive sweat cell/ gland.
The greatest disadvantage about have sweaty palms is that I always end up smudging what I write on my homework, or leaving damp round blobs where I rest my left palm to hold the paper in place, or multiple tiny round blobs where I cautiously pressed the paper down with just a few fingers.
I think that teachers sometimes suspect that homework depresses me so much that I cry onto it while attempting them, since my paper is often crinkling and looked like they had dried from some unidentified puddles.
I tried to imagine if my General Paper teacher ever asked me about why my homework looks flimsy, crinkly and damp.
I would be like,
"I can't help it ma'am, my palms and fingers drool onto the worksheet."
I drew a picture of myself looking perfectly stern whilst explaining that.
I can sort of predict my GP teacher's reaction.
To the minds of detractors, every reason could be an excuse.
Personally, I wouldn't believe it if someone handed me a soaked piece of work and claimed that their palms sweated onto it. I would wonder if they were so hardworking that they did the work while bathing.
Anyway, I don't really like my sweaty palms or fingers, just saying.
I was also told a while ago by a friend that when you get brain tumors, your skull will supposedly change shape.
I thought it was the oddest and most un-biological thing I have heard.
According to my friend, we should be able to feel it on our head if we have a brain tumor because our skull will sort of convex out when there is a tumor.
|"Your skull is fibrous."|
|Yes, your tumor will ostensibly deform your skull.|
The argument went like that:
Another friend of ours complained of a persistent migraine and wondered out loud if it could be a brain tumor, at which my friend with the fibrous-skull claimed that if you have a tumor, you should be able to feel a lump on your head: if you don't feel a lump, then you don't have a tumor.
I tried to tell the person with the fibrous-skull that you cannot possibly feel a tumor on your head because you have a skull, and your tumor grows inside the skull.
He confidently told me that nope, your skull will protrude because your skull "is fibrous and will change shape".
I privately disagreed with him, but because he is a person who likes to pursue his point until everyone concedes and also because it was during a lesson, I decided to just nod and agree with him.
After which I asked Clarissa and Denyse, because I was too lazy to google that.
Our conversation went like that:
Clarissa: Does he learn biology?I thought they made sense. I mean, if my skull was that malleable, mine would have resembled the surface of the moon from all the times I cracked my head against hard surfaces right?
Me: Nope, I don't think so.
Denyse: You can't feel a tumor through the skull! If your skull deforms that easily then you would have cracked it long ago.
I asked my mom too and she figured that if we could feel for brain tumors, why bother doing CT scan? I thought that was a good point.
But still, I am curious. Does anyone know for sure? Or won't mind checking and telling me? I really want to know, heh.
Tell next time, see you all!
