Want to spend all night at the Library’s landmark Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, exploring everything from the Rose Main Reading Room to The Stacks (yes, The Stacks, which are rarely open to the public)? Well, on May 20, you have your chance. Renowned game designer and best-selling author Jane McGonigal has created “Find The Future: The Game” in honor of the 42nd Street building’s 100th birthday. Five hundred lucky people will be the first to play only livesex it on the evening of May 20, collectively completing 100 “quests” in teams of eight overnight (the first time NYPL has ever had an overnight event). Players - using smart phones - will receive missions to find objects from our collection, which will be strategically placed around the building. Once an item is found, players look at it, study it, feel its power and then complete a writing “quest.” For example, chicas cam players might be asked to look at an old menu from our menu collection. After studying it and getting inspired, they use a laptop (either their own or one we provide) to answer the quest, “Design your ideal menu.” Each team will complete three or four of the quests. At the end, the most innovative answers will be made into a book that will wind up in our collections forever. I know, only sexcam sounds cool, right? So how do you participate in opening night? Complete a quest online - the most creative responders (18 and older only) will get a coveted slot. You can apply starting today. Registration ends at the end of April. If you don’t get a slot, don’t fret - anyone can play the game either online or at the Library’s 42nd Street building (with a smart phone) starting May 21. No Stacks, though - that’s only for opening night. So go!!! Register!!! And in the meantime, watch the amazing trailer McGonigal’s team put together above.
When you see love between two persons, something is flowing, moving, changing. When there is love between two persons they live in an aura, there is a constant sharing. Their vibrations are reaching to each other; they are broadcasting their being to each other. There is no wall between them, they are two and yet not two — they are one also.
This is neat! Something I want to clarify though: only the FRATERNAL TWIN rate has been climbing due to IVF. Fraternal twins happen because two different eggs were released by a woman during ovulation, and two different sperm fertilized them. Fraternal twins are basically regular siblings that happened to share a womb. Identical twins happen when one egg is fertilized by one sperm and that cell splits, growing into two people who have the same exact DNA. Identical twins are totally random and have nothing to do with fertility treatments, since we don’t have the technology to encourage an embryo to split post-fertilization.
Fun fact: When people say, “twins run in my family” they mean fraternal twins. Specifically, they mean that the women in their family are genetically more likely to release more than one egg when they ovulate.
Second fun fact: Since identical twins were initially one embryo that split up into two, one identical twin must be the clone of the other. If you are friends with a set of identical twins, rejoice in the knowledge that one of your friends is a real live clone (try to guess which one!)
