I think I figured this out, by accident. In Pachy's case, I think the error message was copied into the text box, to make it long enough.

I was able to post just the group hug in a thread! It seems because the actual word/text or code for it is "grouphug" (with a colon before and after), and that's enough minimum characters, which is 8. The smile is : ) which is just 2 characters, the : and the ). No space after the colon in the smiley, I just did that to show the characters.

So I think that's the answer. Each emoji has a text description or generic one like punctuation marks.

This makes logical sense to explain it

Lookie what I found https://www.sciencedaily.com/release...0829130001.htm

Quote:
"If aging women find themselves losing weight when they are not trying to lose weight, this could be a warning sign of ill health and a predictor of decreased longevity."

The findings suggest that general recommendations for weight loss in older women may not help them live longer. Nevertheless, the authors caution that women should heed medical advice if moderate weight loss is recommended to improve their health or quality of life.

The data expands on the growing research linking the relationship between weight change and mortality. Notably, this is the first large study to examine weight change later in life and its relation to exceptional longevity.

Yes, they hit anorexic state quicker & that can kill them before the cancer does. I losevweight quickly when I get sick so it is good to have some extra weight for a buffer

Yes, I copied the error message and added it to my message to make it long enough.

Yeah, me too. Or I misplace it. I know I wrote it down but where did I put that? It's not where it should/would be so where did I put it? Right now I can't find the info I collected on this shoe repair place. I'm sure I didn't throw it out.

Speaking of forgetting,......

Brain Foods That May Help Prevent Dementia

I've heard that grape joice (what kind, though?) is as good as wine..... I love cheese, so I hate the limitation.

I too love cheese and have tried to cut back because of how fatty it is. It’s so hard to eat healthy as healthy stuff doesn’t taste great and honestly I don’t enjoy food as much, constantly being told what to eat. And I can’t lose the weight I gained, part of it from Covid lockdowns and part of it age. I also love chocolate.

I hate celery and carrots which is what I’m supposed to snack on! I made carrots slightly more tolerable by cooking them and sprinkling them with cinnamon. But still gross. Ugh… Exercise is a chore now.

I have very bad side effects to most meds (even benedryl) so I mostly stay away from everything to avoid side effects. Md's hate me because there is nothing they prescribe that I can take. Have gone toward naturalist treatments at this point in my life

Found that out when my Calif pdoc told me to take Omega-3 EPA for depression.....it works BUT you have to buy fresh, good quality for it to work. DHA works great for brain function & heart but same, fresh, good quality & that ALWAYS costs more but would rather spend more money on that then waste money on big pharma drugs that cause me horrible side effects.
