All this knowledge about water, and fully 10% of the time, I can't pour water from a coffee pot without having it spill...

I can contribute a data point to this. A long time ago, a friend of mine studied and lived with a Yup'ik tribe in Alaska. She told me that in their meetings, it was a strong cultural norm to be absolutely silent while the speaker speaks, no matter who they are, until they say the word for "done", even if the person pauses for several minutes. The only exception to this norm was when an elder tells someone younger that they are done, using the exact same word. So I guess the better translation would be "I am/you are done". She told me that this was normally used for guidance/instruction. 

A neighbor recently told me that he discovered that he unknowingly contracted covid, and that he discovered this fact when he went to see a foot doctor for unrelated reasons. The doctor told him that the virus causes blood to clot in the tips of your toes, leaving you with covid toe. The more you know.

I'm not sure if it's intentional, but the link where you first introduce Seeds of Science (theseedsofscience.org) recursively points back here. The how to publish link later in the paragraph goes to the expected location.

These vibrations are good, but I think more research needs to be done on ensuring Friendly Excitations.

I've been wondering for a little while now, is it momentum that keeps NE-ex-NY separate from NY? Is it because, since you're from there, it matters to you to keep them separated? Because outside of the original outbreak, I don't think NE-ex-NY + NY (aka just NE) has ever risen above the next-lowest region since May of last year.

Since I have not read the first one, I could only speculate that the people who end up helping realize that nobody else is going to do anything to help, which breaks them out of the effect and they end up helping more.
