In the future, not turning in homework and failing an exam might mean YOUR DEATH.

I like Nigels edit, its more concise.

The general message conveyed is: im not an unidimensional person, have some basic inaight and self perception, is probably looking for someone long term monogamously, are nurturing, into gardening and some herbolatry.

You tink you are doing satire and exaggeration but theres an animated series sponsored by Axe, you see...

I need to find it though, didnt bother to bookmark.


I don't know what to think, on one hand it's a bad taste sign... on the other, it's getting worked up over a small symbolic thing when there are so many more relevant things to be outraged over, and it's the same tendency of this 5 years of so, getting outraged over symbolic things, while doing nothing and ignoring the major problems.

The only thing that barely made me think about it twice is that its phrased as to seem that every single restaurant in the chain has the same sign, rather than it being an isolated instance, which makes it an institutional decision rather than an individual's bad taste.

The concept of mental health is murky at best, and it needs a reference point... is it happiness? economical functionality? integration to society?...

ADHD is usually only considered a problem by either parents or teachers, but not by the child or its peers (for what its worth) and the medication is just usually a way to numb them up and shut them up. Are better grades at that age worth being drugged to oblivion? Probably not.... but what about highschool and beyond? perhaps if they themselves feel they cannot focus like they would WANT to be qble to, it can be called a disorder because it impairs their lives, but if they like being that way then its more a case of not being neurotypical.

In other words, there are two broad categories, neurotypical vs deviant, and both groups can respectively be within the spectrum of illness or disorder, depending on which stick is used to measure.

I, on the other hand, narrowly avoided killing a busker with an accordion this morning while getting a coffee.

Was it An disccordian accordion???

From all of the rationalizations one can create to avoid treatment for mental illness, one of them is people don't recognize they have a problem in the first place - they rather are special snowflakes that none understand -; another rationalization is sweeping generalizations to discredit entire fields of research and professions.

By your own logic ALL doctors and nurses make people sick, mechanics ruin cars, engineers break their systems.

Trust NO ONE, so do surgery on yourself, fix your own car and self medicate.

Just had a thought regarding this subvocalization malarkey. If you take understanding spoken language as a baseline, how far up or down is the fidelity required to grab music I play in my head?

I quite often invent whole bloody symphonies in my mind's ear but lack the dedication to figure out how to write it down in music language and then turn it into out loud shit. Only I get to listen to it. Would be the crown king of epic if I could just record the shit as it happened. Use it as backing tracks for kayaking vids.

Musicians and composers, spitting bullets about how it's just not cricket in 3... 2... 1... 

Perhaps if Pentagram would learn to read and fill a musical pentagram  :? :fnord:

It's tumblr, right?

It's real.

I just had to have a talk with my own kid about why there is nothing "oppressive" about not diagnosing people under 18 (IMO 23-25 would be more appropriate, in fact) with personality disorders. Because different parts of the brain undergo major developmental surges at different times, effectively making everyone whose brain isn't done growing "disordered" if you held them to adult standards.

Fucking Tumblr.

To some people a diagnosis is a badge of specialness and a justificant for all their actions... and on one hand it is good for eventual treatment to have a diagnosis, but considering the pharma mafia lobby pushes to raise their stock value, how many diagnoses are even correct.

Also, diagnosis carries stigma.

Sorry if im not on point, i lost track on how far back the quote nest goes.
