09 - Why Are You...You?
Why are you...you? Do you even know who you are? By now, we should understand the biological functions of how we got here. When a daddy and a mommy love each other very much, they hug real close, and then 9 months later, you come out of mommy's tummy...at least that is what I’m told. But is that the only way we are created? The idea of how humans evolve and learn is debatable. Is it through nature that we have a set idea of life, and our genetics help us sail through the waves of that life, learning to navigate every day? Or are we a product of how we were nurtured? Where and how we grew up? Does the environment we walkthrough always change who we are? Music by The Odd Spirit Society on Spotify, Apple Music, and other streaming platforms.

08 - Is That an Alien in Your Pocket?
At night, when you go outside and look up, what do you see? Do you see a massive black void? Maybe unattainable sparkling lights? Or do you see a possibility? Possible hope for life beyond our planet? There are more questions than stars in the sky and far fewer answers. Far, far fewer! Fractions of fractions. We know little of what is beyond our planet in the grand scheme of things. Our solar system is 7 billion, 440 million miles. If you wanted to drive that distance, you’d hop in your car and travel at an average speed of 60mph; it would take you 124,000,000 million hours or 14,155.25 years. Also, there are not any rest stops, so no Big Gulps. Now our solar planetary system is only one of the 3,221 known planet systems in the Milky Way galaxy. This leaves a lot of room for the possibility of intelligent life. Have we already been visited? Are we in constant contact with aliens and do not realize it? What might the powers that be know that they will not tell us? Is this all horse crap? Let’s find out. Places to visit: GEEK MOUNTAIN <---What I do when not podcasting.

07 - Super Freaky or Super Human, also, a Dog Poo Sandwich.
Why is it that to this day when we see a sheet or towel something in us wants to tie it around our neck and stand victoriously in the bathroom mirror? --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/happysocialexperiment/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/happysocialexperiment/support

06 - At the End of the Day with Mental Health
We have a mental health problem. For the most part, we do not know a lot about mental illness. We have an idea. A hunch but what works for one person might not work for the other. The brain locks up a lot of mysteries and has yet to tell us where the key happens to be to unlock it. So, we sling stuff at the wall and see what sticks. There is one thing that is very important. Talking about it. Getting it out in the open. Breaking down the stigma of what people with mental illness look or act like.Please follow these links if you or someone you know needs help and support for mental illness.

05 - What Are Your Pet Peeves?
It’s that one thing you hear or witness that destroys your calm disposition. Your ears amplify that one noise that makes your skin crawl. Your eyes start to tear up or burn due to what you are witnessing. You feel your blood pressure rise. You try to calm and hold your tongue. The verbal barrage is lock and loaded. Do you fire away or do you swallow it down and let it fester? Are these annoyances petty things or can they become debilitating?Just how much can you take?

04 - Do You Lie?
Face it. You’re a liar. You can sit there and say, “No, I don’t lie.” Well, you’re lying to yourself. Bigly. So, just admit that you lie. You might not mean to but you do.But why do we lie? Are we constantly lying to ourselves convincing others or yourself that you don’t lie? How much does our society, surroundings, or pop culture make us think it’s okay?

03 - Could You Murder?
Today’s episode asks, “If you could murder, would you?” I’d like to think we wouldn’t but are we wired to kill when pushed. Would you have a plan? Completely premeditated or murder of passion?How dark can you go?

02 - Body Snatchers
Imagine a dark and rainy night. Lanterns glow appear above the puddles, showcasing fresh graves. The gallows were busy that day. You start to hear the shovel digging into the mud. “Pull, boys, we have to get them out and to the lab.” Beginning to a vampire horror movie or a common occurrence during the 17th century age of enlightenment. Stealing bodies were a crime but a crime that needed to happen. We had to know how we, humans, worked. In 1955, Jack Finney wrote The Body Snatchers. Many readers developed a new fear of plants. Two of the most common plant phobias are botanophobia, the often irrational fear of plants, and anthophobia, the fear of flowers.Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have another body? Even just for 24 hours? What if someone borrowed your body? What would you tell them?INSTAGRAM. TWITTER. YOUTUBE. GEEKMTN.COM

01 - Are Ghosts Real?
For centuries, humans have wondered what happens to our essence, memories, energy…our soul when we die. Do we head to that perfect utopia and live an eternal life in happiness? Or do we head to the eternal damnation for how we horribly lived our life? Are some souls hanging onto the living world, comforting family and friends, warning others, or reliving tragic events?Today's episode, I ask the question, "Are Ghosts Real?" I have talked to friends and family about their experiences and opinions. I even went ghost hunting in Bardstown, KY. I stayed at one of the most haunted Bed & Breakfast in the country, The Talbott Inn & Tavern. Let's get into it, let's start October off right with a little spookiness!
