Literate Chaotic / Re: What do people use pet animals for

Hey bro, just FYI this is a bad place to bloviate on scientific or political topics you don't know anything about.

This is EXACTLY why I am a dog person.  They've had our backs for 30,000+ years. 

Cats would sell us out to Nazi aliens tomorrow.

I tried this, but then I woke up in an arroyo with a male prostitute stuck to my fingernails.


I remember that.  We wrote a song about it.

 :lol:

"Please Come to Tucson", with no apologies to David Loggins.

I'm in the Singapore airport, and my feet hurt.

I will be here until 8:50 am. I think it's currently somewhere around three.

Nigel lands in Singapore, Lee Kuan Yew dies shortly after.

91 is awfully old to be Nigel'd.

A girl takes what she can get, after a long flight.

The horror.  You make it to 91, you're thinking, "she's WAY the fuck over there, I MADE IT", then BAM.

Hold on. 

You have IV bags at home?

Is that not normal?

It seems to me that this should be a standard household item.

Anyway, spent the day in the hospital.  Feeling somewhat better now, pending whatever horrible opportunistic microbes I may have picked up making their move.

DUDE

I LEAVE THE COUNTRY FOR A FEW DAYS AND YOU ALMOST DIE AGAIN? WHAT HAVE I TOLD YOU ABOUT ALMOST DYING???

I didn't almost die, really.  But when I crapped, I saw a tunnel with a bright light at the end.

And then God shat on me.   :sad:

I'm home now. It's been the longest day of my life, lasting from approximately 9pm Saturday night to 6 pm Monday morning, Portland time, with intermittent light napping.

I got in at 8:40 this morning and went promptly to my classes. Woot. Cell bio is gonna be hard.  may have bitten off more than I can chew with microbial metagenomics. We'll see.

1.  Welcome home.

2.  Microbial whatsenomics?

It's really cool! So, you're familiar with genomics, I'm sure... the study of an organism's genome? Well, a metagenome is the collective genome of a community of organisms, binned by function. It's seriously some of the coolest science I've come across so far, and has massive, massive ramifications not only for ecological and biomedical research, but also potentially for industrial biosynthesis.

I can grasp the concept, I think.

Bump for later use.

I'm having trouble getting more than 5 uninterrupted minutes to myself, so this may not be a thing until tomorrow or Wednesday.

I'm not interested in filling my head with whatever is in the link, but from what I've seen ITT...

She's saying that humanity is entirely dependant on rape for procreation. This is just absurd. Rape is an act of violence and dominion, not of sex per se. This basic misunderstanding seems to be her whole view on the subject. The vehemence and single mindedness in her words seems almost inhuman. As though the manipulation of a vulnerable reader by way of fictitious and graphic imagery was the whole point of the writing..

She's possibly psychotic, I think. If not then this is likely an intended effect, but why?

There's lots of reasons people end up fucked up about sex, women especially. I haven't read any of the other articles on the site, but her descriptions of sex and pregnancy make it pretty clear that she's terrified of childbearing.

No doubt. More than that she seems against even the idea that it could be ok, much less greatly desired by other women, without corecion. LOTS of women find the idea of pregnancy daunting. Rightly, it can kill you, and even if successful your life as you knew it is over.

She seems to be farther out than that to me. She sees only evil in humanity on some deep level. Aggression and an oddly thoughtful, systematic brutality in males and a condescending perception of weakness in females that makes them indefensibly vulnerable to thought control.

She is in effect more deluded than even some conspiracy theorists. If this was not brought about by some trauma I would be shocked to hear of it.

I disagree. I'm gonna say severe paranoid schizophrenia. Possibly in combination with either borderline, paranoid-malignant, or paranoid-fanatic personality disorder

I'm not a psychologist, so I'm just gonna say that she's bugshit.

Hello friends! Many of you are tormented by difficult memories and bad luck in your private life.

No, I have "Bob".  The Luck Plane is mine to control.

And "I then realised PD was not impressed with my translated reposts from my Livejournal, and I would need to try harder to obtain my guru status".

My only concern is whether or not he's a hipster trying to be Grant Morrison, or someone with actual mental problems.

And?

you don't like the Dark Tower? Or you just don't want to be derivative?

I love the Dark Tower.  I'm just trying to tell my own story.

really enjoying this, especially the hints of Dark Tower i'm picking up. Delicious!

I was deliberately trying to avoid that.  I'm gonna have to change a phrase or two, because I can see what you're talking about.
