    Five Topics of Personal Interest

    Any Doctors, Med School Students or Directors of Nursing in The House? If so, I'd appreciate any accurate information (in non-technical terms to the greatest extent possible) you may have on the following five topics: 1) Post-Paralysis Recovery; 2) RLS; 3) Skin Abnormalities (dryness, itching, frequent bruising, blotching and bleeding); 4) Genetic Predisposition; and 5) Transfer of Genes During Copulation. Thank you. (gb)

    LOL. What a bizarre list of things you want to know! especially the one about gene transfer during "Copulation"! Why on earth do you want to know about that!?
    Is this just out of pure curiosity or are you trying to help very unfortunate person with a bizarre set of medical problems?

    (sorry, I'm not an expert in any of those fields. But I guess if I was an expert in all those fields, I would know literally everything including full details of the mating habits of dung beetles)

    Important to note that you cannot "catch" a genetic predisposition by copulation, although you can pass said genetic predisposition onto any offspring that result from copulation.

    Mine's a mild version (less overactive nerves and muscle spasms
    than one that causes my the skin on the soles of my feet to itch and burn)
    caused by paraylysis from hip to knee [without impact injury, stroke or seizure]
    in 2010 which I'm now 90-95% recovered. Sorry to hear about yours.

    "5) Transfer of Genes During Copulation."

    Much improved and much more nearly accurate wording:

    'Transfer of Genes from Parents (and ancestral lineage)'.

    Unfortunate wording; please forgive.

    The transfer of genes during copulation is simply ejaculation. The actual transfer of genes to the egg happens a little later. Is this what you wanted to know about?

    Depends on what you mean by "work". Flowers are just reproductive organs but some have the added function of attracting the means to distribute pollen.
