This was my favorite:

over half the population of the earth live in cities, though mostly not cities in the european sense

I don't understand this. What does it mean? What is a "city in the European sense"?

well spotted, the single most dangling end of a string in there

you see the piece was recycled from my blog, sans the rather long analysis of the hungarian situation in particular

and when i translated it, even though i saw it wasn't particularly connected to anything, i decided to leave it in, because i think this factette is somehow strangely relevant to the present-day human predicament

it just so happens, as of a few years ago, city-dwellers now outnumber country-folk

only, when musing about the implications, it is important to keep in mind that say the average of those cities is certainly closer to Xiamen, Mexico City or Kairo than New York, London or Berlin - no sanitation, no organised, clean public transport, no stifling regulations

networks, though, digital networks!

where that gets us, i'm not quite sure

Hey Johnny, what's it like to live in a city with no sanitation, no organized, clean public transport, and no regulations? Oh I'm sorry, I mean "city", since it isn't a real city... you know, in a "European" sense. If you know what I mean.

Well ill tell you how my day was so you can infer for yourself...

After riding a donkey to the monte, i bartered nopales for a guajolote riding thru shit ridden streets full of leprose children... after a mere 10 hour round trip, i crushed the guajolotes head in my tortillero and fed said head to my girlfriend (such delicassy, ill have unprotected sex with her later so we have our 10th child) so the rest of the guajolote i threw into the furnace so i could get the steam engine rolling so i could charge the car battery so i could power up the phone with wifi (which costed me a months salary) but since i took so long to write this post the guajolote is cooked black so for the next three days im going to starve. Luckily, i eyeballed earlier some European Jehovas Witness which i can head hunt in the night and eat them raw (except the heart cause the soul is there, ill make an amulet out of their fingernails and wear their shrunken heads as a necklace)... and idk what u mean by country, we call this rancho.

I speak better english than most Americans, which if it was Finlandish it would be something to be proud of... rather it just shows how ignorant the majority of your population is.... what is a great language if none knows how to use it? (which btw, isnt a great language, you savages dont even have accents)

I was struck by this line:

Quote
The official line is that the new rules—which ban the use of wordplay in the press, broadcasts, and advertisements—are intended to uphold the sanctity of the Chinese language

Because even if we believe that that really is the reasoning behind it, that's still a pretty bad motivation given that China probably has the most backward-ass language of any noteworthy world power.

It does, does it? By what standard?

Just the one?

Becose commie slashes lines, primitive like wall paintings, duh.

I think rather she should admit her tumblr influences... cause leaking an album is both terrorism and rape... while at the same time it has become an early xmas gift to fans... THEREFORE Madoona is Satan because shes trying to destroy christs birthday thru gifting all terrorristic rape  :aaa:

I've just realised now I'm moving back to London, I can far more effectively troll OKCupid and Craigslist, because I'll always have the potential to meet people in real time and do the same.

I am prepared for epic and terrible dating adventures.

Ohhhh my god.

I can't even imagine dating in London. It... just no.

Whats special about dating in London? Like, ive noticed in bigger cities its a heartless and cutthroat style, but idk if you mean that.

Also, fuck you guys' revisionist history.

RWHN was never that cool. I met him back when he hadn't been on the board that long and he was a weirdly breathy and pallid little shitburger even back then.

I thought he was OK, despite the fact that I loathe puns, especially bad puns. Unfortunately, he couldn't cope with my hatred of stupid puns and decided he was my enemy. Whatevs, bro.

But once he spiraled into his weird anti-pot "I AM A POLICYMAKER" power trip, he was just lost. Typical case of a person who feels powerless seeking control over their own lives by imposing control on others.

The puns were a clear sign that something wasnt right. Never trust the intellectual integrity of a punner.  :fnord:

How would you know someone is if they don't act anti-socially?

There's a funny story about that...

Quote
“I got to the bottom of the stack, and saw this scan that was obviously pathological,” he says, noting that it showed low activity in certain areas of the frontal and temporal lobes linked to empathy, morality and self-control. Knowing that it belonged to a member of his family, Fallon checked his lab’s PET machine for an error (it was working perfectly fine) and then decided he simply had to break the blinding that prevented him from knowing whose brain was pictured. When he looked up the code, he was greeted by an unsettling revelation: the psychopathic brain pictured in the scan was his own.

How ive understood it previously, is that psychopaths do criminal activity for the pleasure, the profit or the narcissistic component in a very cold and planned manner... serial killers, bankers; while sociopaths do criminal activity out of necessity but still having empathy and probably feel guilty about things theyve done, but they still do it because they have more empathy for those close to them than those they dont know (for example, all the Guadalupan Cholos, that, even with a life of crime they believe in the Virgin Mary and repentance).

Great part of it is the "us" vs. "them" mentality up to a certain point.

"We" do the best we can, with all the excuses and rationalizations for doing poorly.

But "them" they deliberately are doing a shitty job, and all their shortcomings are bullshit.

http://www.diffen.com/difference/Psychopath_vs_Sociopath   :?

That entry does a pretty poor job of expressing the difference, IMO. From the reading I've done, mostly the books by Hare and Kiehl, psychopathy is a heritable condition that is primarily biologically-based, while sociopathy is an environmentally-induced condition.

The lines there really blur, because having the genetic predisposition for psychopathy is not a guarantee that it will develop. However, I think they make the distinction because sociopathy is a condition that was unlikely to be the default condition of the sufferer without significant social factors, and can often be treated, while psychopathy is more likely  to emerge without significant social factors, and is less tractable.

May i ask why it bothers you so much that people interchangeably use the terms when the terms themselves are so blurry?
