Does caffeine really darken blue eyes?
As near as I can tell from a googling, not exactly. It (apparently especially paired with salt, which most people have too much of in their diet) can exacerbate bags under the eyes, though, which due to biology nonsense can make your eyes look darker, even if there's no change to the structure of the stuff in your eyes that determine color.

So yes, but also no, or no, but also yes, depending on how you prefer to look at it. It doesn't appear to do anything to your eye color directly.

Can most adults touch their toes?
I've never been able to touch mine with out bending my knees a little, but if I bend my knees a lot I can touch my toes with my elbows.

Ah that’s what the guy could do, I remember now…

I used to work with someone who was flexible enough to put the backs of his hands flat on the floor without bending his knees.

Never heard the first, can't do the second.

There's an exercise you can do to stretch out your legs. Lie on your back, have someone kneel and place a leg on their shoulder. Have them shuffle up to you to the point you feel strain (But not pain) then push down onto their shoulder until your leg is tired. Have them shuffle up a bit more (The exhaustion should loosen up your leg muscles, which is usually the cause of not being able to stretch fully), and repeat. Keep doing this until you either can't get any further or your leg is as far as you want. Then do the other leg.

Keep doing it and it should eventually loosen up the leg muscles permanently.

Is general malaise while sick just the herd-protection response? Like am I supposed to just be easy prey right now?

Quite a while ago, I taught yoga - and let me tell you, getting paid to practice yoga makes you very flexible.

I think it's more akin to your body telling you to stay put in your cave and don't put yourself into more danger while your immune system fights off the pathogen.

Or maybe not even that, it might actually be your body using extra energy so you don't have as much to actually do things with.

There is no "herd-protection response". Evolution never sacrifices the individual unless the individual is (biologically or synthetically) sterile (and even then, only for the sake of nuclear family); genes that promote self-sacrifice go to zero over even a modest term.

Your feeling could be related to being cooped up inside. Try go outside getting fresh air, flexing tight muscles from staying too much in bed, some scenery change and distraction to relax could do you good. Also depending on what stage you are at, I might even suggest some light exercise, I find that all the above does wonders for my well being in the late stage of common diseases

If there's an altruistic gene in a population which is widespread but rarely phenotypically active (e.g. it depends on an uncommon combination of multiple genes to manifest at all) the penalty selecting against it is minimized while the social benefit broader than immediate relatives may be significant enough to give the population harboring it an advantage over those without (and even in the temporary complete absence of positive selective pressure it will likely persist for a very long time as all commonly dormant genes do).

So the 'add an extra word' thread spat out 'SATAN’S LINGERIE STORE IN PASADENA, CALIFORNIA' a while back. Which I just read.

This prompted a few minutes of street-viewing around Pasadena. Specifically, around Cal-Tech. It looks.... so characterless. I couldn't think of, or see, anything a tourist would want to visit.

My question - - - is this a general rule of thumb for the US, or is it just that Pasadena sucks?
