Testamonial: And i have actually gone to a bar and had a bouncer try to start a fight with me on the way in. I broke his teeth out of his fucking mouth and put his face through a passenger side window of a car.
Guess thats what the Internet was build for, pussy motherfuckers taking shit in safety...

This was my favorite:Quoteover 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.
I was struck by this line:QuoteThe 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?
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.
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.
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.

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.
