Smells...of the candles i have they are usually light and earthy smelling. My all time favourite is grass, i love the way it smells like a fresh cut lawn. Another i have is Ocean breeze, its very light and smells almost like a lightly perfumed water (mmmhmm). I hate musky smells and strong perfumed candles that smell like colognes etc.

For wearing colognes....There are 2 that i like and theyre both fairly light and fresh scented. I cant deal with anything that is too heavy or musky blahhhh

I'm still wondering if type B could be genetically linked with a heightened/refined olfactory sense. Maybe the Doctor knows.

I like smells that are very light- I don´t like anything that smells very heavy musky or chemical- I have a VERY good nose and normally I am the one who always have to taste things the last minute before serving even at friends places.Or have to smell if some foodstuff has turned bad/old.
Once I was asked to do a blind taste test - The guy was SO surprised that I had picked the most expensive vanilla icecream out( I was a poor single mum in UNI)- I was the only one of the 25 people he had that day
- well it was the only one that only contained; sugar, eggs, cream and real vanilla....... all the other stuff contained no cream or vanilla.
I love the smell of sweet peas- but I would never use it as a perfume - my favorite smell is rain in april- when it smells warm and of fresh grass..uhm- or the salty smell of the sea.

U2Dan,   at your comment earlier in this thread – too many around you who won’t eat the cake if the frosting was put on it from a spoon instead of a knife – totally crazy example (which obviously you chose for that reason), but it struck home for me.  Yes, my gosh, there are some incredibly fussy people out there.  Life would be so much easier if we just mosi’ed (is that a word?) along a bit more – and definitely more fun.

Having said that, now feeling a little guilty, as I know other people find me fussy about various things too, but I see it as having an eye for detail, paying attention, thinking carefully (positive things like that!).   Ah, the words we choose are so important aren’t they.

Jumping into the smells conversation...  and your comment Exj_j about B’s possibly being genetically linked with a heightened / refined olfactory sense.  I certainly notice smells / perfumes (yuk) a lot more than people around me seem to, but one of those people who doesn’t notice smells is my husband, and he’s also a B.    One for your case, and one against, Exj_j.

Smells are incredibly powerful in terms of reviving memories, I find (maybe this is the ‘B thing?).   I lived in Montreal in the 80’s (ie  away from all the native plants here in Australia)  and at one point, I visited an indoor arboretum (somewhere near the Olympic Stadium, in case there’s any Montrealers reading this).  When I walked inside, the effect was immediate and overpowering;  memories of home just flooded in, generated by those smells I had grown up with, but not given a single thought to since I’d left home.

Oh haha i actually have mega lame friends that would say something as crazy as a spoon instead of knife to frost a cake, and then tey have the nerve to get offended if i happen to be trying to do somehting good for my own health. love it! lol

Quoted from exj_j
Yay, I found the NEW THREAD button.
B's:  Get back to me on the subject of being a total anachronism, belatedly computer-illiterate, etc.  I'd like some company.


Going back to the original topic, it's an interesting theory, but I doubt that it's true. My brother is a software engineer and I'm a computer systems analyst/programmer, which are much the same thing. Anyway, we're both B.

The human genome is composed of thousands of genes so I assume that the B gene is not the only contributing factor.

Hello B friends. This thread has fallen off "recent", and I miss y'all, genetic kin.
May our camels link in a sinuous dawn caravan as of old.

I'm a city dweller and eat out alot. I go in spurts of cooking for months, and then I get very busy around town and am too exhausted to do so, and go on a jag of eating out....

As I cross the wilderness I behold wisps of friendly smoke from yonder goat's-hair tent and approach.  Brethren hold forth a cup of fragrant muddy coffee and bid me recline upon the family carpet.

So I go in and order dinner. Who wouldn't?

The only reason I'm reviving this thread, again, is: I just found myself writing about B stuff that wasn't necessarily "Weight loss/gain" related on the "B and weight" thread, and, as I said there, I feel the need for some B fellowship out here on the steppe of life.

Anybody home? Let's see your saffron B banner waving in the Great Open Sky.
Only a small percentage of us are B's, and every now and again I crave the clan powwow.

Shall we indulge in an imaginary meal? Or should I tell you I discovered a little Indian restaurant where the Lamb Korma is ambrosial?  The quality of the meat is prime and oh-so-tender.  The yogurty sauce is perfectly perfumed.  The wine list, on the other hand, needs serious attention.  The manager was very grateful for the list I made on the spot of appropriate libation-offerings, as he knew the wines were not selling well enough, and no one had gone to the trouble of explaining to him that Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc may be ok with other cuisines, but...etc. But I must say, he was absolutely gracious, in that inimitable subcontinental way...

I miss y'all.  Say hello.

The way I see it is that I was either born two-hundred years too soon, or two-thousand years too late.

I spend everyday striving to get the elevators working, now I have to fight the computer that thinks it can think. We had elevators running automatically for thirty years before the univac...

I've also seen how the computer wrecked every career I've ever tried to pursue. Save time, phooey. now everybody has to continually upgrade their software and their minds. There is no way these modern engineers could ever design some of the things built by craftsmen even forty years ago.

The mind is a muscle, so use it.

Finding out that I'm a B-type nonsecreto actually helped resolve more of my family tree!

Schluggell: I salute you and when I read your entry. I am SO with you, I don't know where to start.  I know you're a relative newcomer, so I hope you'll read or have read the whole thread.  The welcome mat is always out for you here in B-land.

I think about being B a lot.  Not only, u2dan, is the yellow banner rare on the site, the "personality", and I'm convinced it exists, is rare in the world.  We wander around, shepherding and braving the elements, no matter how modern the setting.

I've long been a student of nomadism, and have read quite a bit of literature about the final century of their whole way of life, as their scouts were equipped with cellphones, and, of course, their camels replaced by pickup trucks, and later, their tents by walk-up apartments. They are me, I them.  I hang on, however; it's all I know how to do.

Ellie: "Bs rule !!!!"

))


hehehe,

I wonder how much of us food groups get this group power sense,
but yea Id like to hang out with some Bs,
even thoughs one of my most loved friends is O,
and another is A,
so,
ABO rule!!!

also books are fine,
is my dad then AB?

strange if he was,
I thought he was O,
he used to be angry and so on,
aggressive,

but maybe he had this B gene stress reaction from ALL THE WORK,
oh man did he work and work and work,

but now hes doing less work,
and sees so much more humane,

I bet his damn cortisol levels have gone down,

but damn the B senility,
my alzheimer grandmother,
she likes lots of sour milk so shes doing fine,

but she likes chicken as well,
damn,

too bad I cannot get away from the monologue feeling here,

There is a fair share of blood-type info out there that conflicts with Dr.D's anthro-archaeology (I mean no disrepect, I have only the highest compliments for his diligent work to present this to the English-speaking world).

Particularly when it comes to B's(probably because thats what I've researched most).

If you actually compare the chemical structure of the different blood-types the assumption of type-O being the oldest does not pan out. In fact, when cells become mutated they tend to evolve into type-O, therefore one can see how he based his assumption on the populations of the old peoples of the earth.

Also, how many other mammals really have type-O? From what I've found they are not O, many B's though and some other types.

Yep, nomadism. Olde Turkish proverb:
Don't tell me what you know, BUT tell me where you have been.

Ferdiarda:  I love your monologues, because they're not really monologues insofar as we your B family so enjoy them...and you. So keep talking, and we'll keep feeling that warm 'n fuzzy way in response.

(Writing on line is, indeed, weird.)

The B's ancestral Nomadism doesn't imply separateness/solitariness; on the contrary, the nomadic tribes of the earth cohere(d) in a sort of Family-ness without any privacy. For those of us B's who feel to have inherited the insistent freedom-need of those tribes, there can be a twisted sense of aloneness, unless we are surrounded by B's.  Yes, we must wander where the grazing is good and arrive at certain points to trade with others by certain dates/moons, but where we B's are isolated, we must of necessity become, shall we say, hyperindividually poetic.

Keep writing, Ferdiarda the Poet, because you are not alone.

The Japanese apply blood-type to astrology as well.

A-type Scorpio and Taurus is BAD
B-type Gemini for a mate
O-type Gemini and Leo BEST
O-type Aries and Sagitarrius GOOD
AB-type Libras GOOD

Combine that with Chinese astrology to get the year: '64, '68, '72, '76, '84

What about the years 64. 68. etc ?
I am a Leo- born in 72-  sec - what does it say about me

Loved the tyrkish proverb by the way...
My grandmother seemed to me  in many ways to be a real B- mind you- she lived in a village- she didn´t wander around:
I always had a fondness for my (B) grandmother: she was a very good cook, loved her garden, children, grandchildren etc- She always knew everything about the whole village, but she herself was a bit of a mystery , some called her posh, but I really think it was her B"ness: being part of a community and still being her own personality. BTW she was surounded by a A husbond, 3 AB sons + 1 A son and she died peacefully at a age of almost 93 years old without any serious diseases, she was worn out sure - but pretty healhty- She had had her share of pork and chicken, but I always remember her to eat a lot of cabbage, carrots, and fruit from the garden. Oh I wish to be like her.
I share alot of  things with my B sis- she is a leo as well - my poor mum but she doesn´t follow the BTD so sometimes I want to shout out :
WHERE IS MY TRIBE ? - I never thought that the internet would be a place to look for fellow b´s.

I don´t particularly want to keep moving places - but I like that I am able to do it- and I like to come home and sit in my garden and stare at the sky, the bees and the floweres not doing anything at all- just thinking.
BTW I daydream a lot- not that my life is bad- but I just love to imagin things- stories.- Oh my O mum says come on girl grow up !

What does that say about you? It says you are exactly 11 years younger than me  

I also like to sit... and watch... and think... and Be

OOOH I miss the wonderful little country of Denmark!!
And a brief sojourn to Christiania...  

Back in the days of my backpacking trip around Europe, Denmark was the best!
If I could only get good Japanese food, and play a good round of Bandy there I'd rest in peace.

If I could translate all that Biogasanlæg info, maybe I could find my niche.
