Maybe I was being a little dramatic in my previous and perhaps anachronistic concerns re: ultras.  Therefore, I would suggest stocking up on some flares.  Red ones should be easy to find, just get a couple at any auto-zone- not more than two as they might get suspicious.  The yellow flares...  I don't know where to get those...  Still - have fun! :lulz:

So, I'm seeing Liverpool v AS Roma tonight.


Anything special I need to know about either of these teams?

Very cool.  I'd take a seat toward the middle of the stadium, avoiding the extremities (behind the goals).  AS Roma has several Ultras factions (CUCS) as I am sure Liverpool does also.  That can be fun but is not always my cup of tea.  FORZA ROMA!

Even just 20 mins. light sleep/rest helps me defrag after cram / before heading to exam.  Upon rising I just skim material for revision - just to retrace the structure of the data chunks already crammed into memory wetware.  Without sleep, I would skip revision and just get as far as I can.

Hope this isn't too random - just saw The Signal [slip], with Morpheus from the matrix.  Nice entertaining bender.

You wrote that review didn't you? Admit it.

Investigating the criminal mind has been a life long commitment both within the western family unit and the various political cultural aspects these find themselves. Coming to understand that the battle not only is in the inner world of one's faulty thinking, but what lead a person to an aloof mindset associated with the schools of thought in regards to freewill, and civil liberty.
I guess many bored folks whom are bored derive some tweisted power in the mental derailure of others but this book would hopefully open up some options. I think therapy is good for all concerned.

You're not fooling anyone with a couple of typos you know. Stop shilling for these people. It encourages more of them.

BUT I WAS USING TOR :argh!:

Has anyone looked at those links? This is some seriously terribly shoddy shit.

Now look at the website/author it seems to promote:

The lengthy biography page continues with random sections bolded with significantly less impressive non-bolded parts. For all her rave reviews and "5 books" she appears to have no significant internet For such an acclaimed author those 5 reviews are terrible. One of the 5 stars reads like it was written by a freind (who also has similar crap to sell you), 3 others are fairly short with no content and the 3 star reads like it was written by LuciferX. This does not say "legit" to me. At all.
"

Someone, sell me this pen" :lulz:

Junk wins!

After re-reading your invidious comparison, involving me, it would be disparaging of me to mention that I also find you always occupy a place of keen interest, in my thoughts. Kisses.

And there I was thinking a common ground could be something other than sarcasm. :horrormirth:

Condolences to The Suu and Cainaid, my heart goes out to both of you.

After empirical observation I conclude I am cursed

OR

I joined the Wrong Religion.

I hope it's the latter, then all you bastards are in the same boat.

That's what community is all about.
Or, both conclusions are false and Eris forgot how she already had visited her wrath on the histories of ancestors still to come.  Her neglect is otherwise also lamented and she prides herself on instilling such contradictory thoughts in the hearts of great men.  Awoman.

Oh no, nothing like that.  Though they probably do approve...the outfit straddles the line between neoliberal and neocon, but that's the only game in town these days.  I don't alter my writing for them, but my positions may be far more nuanced and come with more caveats than they realise.

Anyway, this is to do with defence procurement and overall strategy for the next decade.  I've yet to look over the details themselves in full depth, because it's a couple of hundred pages long, but it looks like the team are going to write an assessment of it and present it to some subcommittee or another.

So yea, I'd hypothetically indulge the need to confirm their security concerns because proximity then enhances the persuasive power of subtlety.  Kudos.

Penny: it's true, though they may be correlated

Zackly:  I enjoyed the series, however, I can't say it left me with a sense of levity.  I think I wanted and/or was expecting it to be more uplifting in the long run.

Our experience of freedom has been masked and concealed to only reveal what our "masters" allow us to consider.  Then we take it personally when we do not perform according to our now internalized limitations.   Has me banging my head against the wall sometimes.  It's like a paradox in which I resign myself to getting out of my own way in order to actually approach myself.

An interesting documentary about that was made by a guy named Adam Curtis called "The Trap". It has three parts, with each one around an hour a piece but I would say it's worth a watch. Basically, it suggests in the first two parts that people have had limited conceptions of each other as simply "rational" beings, (which I would go so far as to say is hilariously misguided) that was caused in part due to game theory as an academic/economic discipline. I'm probably botching the synopsis, but the third part goes on to say that there is a split between "positive" and "negative" liberty. Positive liberty is the right to do things and "live up to your full potential" garbage while negative liberty is the freedom to NOT be restrained or constrained by the government. It goes on to suggest that positive liberty HAS to be suppressed because it inevitably leads to a revolution. I don't like his conclusion, because he says that it DOESN'T have to lead to revolution. I don't see why it shouldn't lead to a revolution, because "f**k the system!" and all dat jazz.

What I said in my other post, however, may very well negate any kind of depression "epidemic". Depression is just as subjective a phenomena as is self esteem, based on how a person says he or she feels most or all of the time. It's easy to see everyone on Facebook having a bias towards posting positive things that they don't hear about how sh*tty the rest of the other users' lives are.

Yea, I totally enjoyed that doc. even though it still suffered from the kind of thinking it was trying to overcome.

W.r.t. "epidemic" - I agree, self-esteem is not a good metric for a whole shit-ton of reasons.  At the root of it, the problem is not a measure of esteem.  The problem is how easily we are distracted from the understanding of ourselves existing prior to a definition of freedom that is either positive or negative (re. above).  A question of esteem is also only the result of having lost self-respect.  All signals of a systemic problem.

My think tank is submitting a report to Parliament, to do with our fancy defence strategy overhaul.

Hopefully, this means my name will be on something that gets given to MPs, which will help me find employment where I'm not stacking shelves and working tills, or writing for peanuts.

Please tell me the report was not entirely congratulatory of their new wardrobe.
