                lol I cross my arms more when I'm on my own, cos if I'm talking to people I gesture and if I"m stressed I get in their face. Arm crossing for me is mostly to keep warm I reckon. it's comfy when you're leaning back in a chair.

                                                      As an Empath, I would love to have an assessment, because I wonder whether I'm perhaps more perceptive to body language &/or if that's all there is to it or am I accessing information some other way. I have no doubt that what I do & am is real, but I want to know what is happening scientifically.

They are cut off and bouncing around with their head up is stressing them more than with the head down. Once they sit in the vase they are still and the stress is less. But you can see that the head is heavy as it bends down first when they get older. I started doing that when I got told it so I must be eastern European?
                                                                          Has he ever counted his blinking rate? It's 8 times within 10 seconds!

If half of what he says is accurate why are so many of it’s black citizenry experiencing so much violation of their civil rights? Even MLK was on the FBI most watched list of anti American nationalist.

                                                                                What about the recent congressional hearings that forced the FBI representatives to admit that the created label of extremists black nationalist had no actual reality or application to any black civil rights movement in the US? I think all of the participants in the video are actors following a script.

He seems really nervous look at his hands squeezing, wiggling fingers in the first frames also .40 secs. Why is he also twitching his feet? Totally out to lunch - I studied Kung Fu after being sucker punched in a bar at a young age so I would never Telecast my Feelings unless I thought it would help the situation. I am far more aware of my surroundings now because of that incident so it's just a normal part of my life. Most Serial Killers were friendly like John Wayne Gacy - Said the Spider and the fly....
