Paper discussing the history of email development and early online communities. I am finding it quite interesting.

Warning: long.

At the The Next Magazine’s request, Ms Liu personally escorted the reporter to a location where a fetus was being prepared. The reporter observed a woman chopping up a male fetus and making soup from the placenta. During the process, the woman even tried to comfort everyone by saying, “Don’t be afraid, this is just the flesh of a higher animal.”

The boy’s remains were cremated in the mountains in accordance with the customs of the region.

In fact, in China, reports about meals made from infant flesh have surfaced from time to time. A video is on the Internet for people to view. In the introduction, the Chinese claim that eating a human fetus is an art form.

This has been circulating since 2001 and, like most of the "too shocking to believe" stories out of China, STILL isn't true.

I disagree with the idea that it's "too shocking to believe"; The myth's appeal comes from the fact that by the standards of traditional chinese medicine (and the article implies that it is eaten for some dubious medicinal value) it isn't really too far out there, given that the core of tcm seems to be the idea that the more disgusting or obscene something is the greater medicinal value it has when eaten.

 :argh!: THAT A VERY MEAN THING TO SAY ABOUT CHINA THEN  :argh!:

I mean there are plenty of real horror-shows happening around the globe, why we gotta go and make stuff up. I agree with Prelate Diogenes Shandor though, it was not too shocking for me to believe, but then again I'll believe almost any terrible or bat shit thing about people these days. :(

Not sure if.... rhetorical... Fending off.. Requia moment...
If someone does the “Fine, you’re right, I’m clearly a terrible person, I’m Satan, I’m the worst person alive, I should just die” thing in response to criticism of their harmful behavior, they are trying to manipulate people and flip the situation around so that they look like a victim.

As a neuroscientist I have to disagree with the perception that anyone is doing mathematical modeling of cognitive intelligence, yet; intelligence as an economist defines it, yes, but economists are worlds away from actual cognition.


Although it is outside the purview of this organization to offer personal advice, we can say -- without assuming any liability -- that previous experience indicates (and recent market studies corroborate) that given the present condition of the marketplace, continuing with your present course of action is likely to result in substantial in

Quote from: the about page
Spurious Correlations was a project I put together as a fun way to look at correlations and to think about data. Empirical research is interesting, and I love to wonder about how variables work together. The charts on this site aren't meant to imply causation nor are they meant to create a distrust for research or even correlative data. Rather, I hope this project fosters interest in statistics and numerical research.

I am so glad I don't have to date anymore because this sums it up perfectly: http://www.theonion.com/article/woman-feels-shes-finally-ready-start-receiving-uns-52143

Quote
SAN DIEGO—Explaining that she had needed a few months to herself to “get back to the right emotional place,” local woman Laura Berman told reporters Monday she finally felt ready to start receiving completely unsolicited and extremely vulgar messages again. “It was really important to have some time to regroup, but now I think I’m ready to put myself out there again,” said Berman, who stated that, after careful consideration, she has decided to open herself back up to a relentless barrage of sexually explicit and unwelcome emails and texts from strangers. “Call me old-fashioned, but I’m glad I waited until I was mentally prepared to start [opening crude and offensive messages from men who I’ve only spoken to briefly, if at all, that make me feel incredibly uncomfortable, and then after I’ve politely asked them to stop, being bombarded with obscene insults and sometimes violent threats that make me terrified to even look at my phone]. I think it’s time.” At press time, Berman reportedly expressed surprise at how easy it was to get back in the swing of things after opening three consecutive messages containing photos of various unknown men’s genitals.
“I’m guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk,” Charles Wick said. “It was very complicated.”
