  14. 14. 5<br />The term was originally a 19th century expression describing unfinished business—something left over from a meeting—or ‘survival.’ In 1904, the meaning that we now associate first surfaced. Dehydration, fatigue, headache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, flatulence, weakness, elevated body temperature, hypersalivation, difficulty concentrating, sweating, anxiety, irritability, sensitivity to light and noise, erratic motor functions, trouble sleeping, severe hunger, and lack of depth perception are the visible symptoms. There are no "proven-remedies" though many have their insightful opinions on it. What is being discussed?<br />

It also might be used to represent perfection that is sought by man in the form of love, happiness, or Utopian ideals . What is it?<br />

  34. 34. 14<br />X joined the Royal Navy during which time he opted for two tattoos that are described on his official website as:<br />“Unlike many tattoos, his were not frivolous - his tattoos reflect two of his lifelong commitments: his family and Scotland. After six decades, his tattoos still reflect those two ideas: One tattoo is a tribute to his parents and reads "Mum and Dad," and the other is self explanatory, "Scotland Forever.“<br />
