I know from second-hand that Tumblr is just a bunch of fart huffing about "triggers" and new useless retarded nomenclature, but this seems to go beyond that and its a bit atrocious.

The word "trigger" is very unfortunate in it that it is so cumbersome and backfires. While phrases like graphic, vulgar, upsetting, horrific, traumatic content clearly convey the meaning, posts about triggering tumblrs multitude of mentally scarred ptsd sufferers comes off as ridiculous and is only going to be fuel on the fire. 4chan will be lapping that up.

"Trigger warning" has to be the prime example of well meaning internet phrase development implemented in the most self defeating fashion.

I SUPPOSE there's legitimate uses of the word, but its overuse has converted it into "i disagree with this, so im going to blow it out of proportion to guilt-shame the poster of this thing i disagree with and make him/her look like a monster".

Also, a "trigger" is also a very subjective matter and it has an aspiration to make it an objective interpretation... i.e. "OMFG that picture of a puppy triggered me because X and you are such an insensitive asshole for posting it"... its extending the responsability of oneselves feelings/reactions on the hands of another person.


Texts are totalities that can never be fully grasped... but taking synthetical notes and having an ulterior purpose of why you are reading a given book will help.

Mind you, im the type of person that can never tell you where i read something and cant remember the titles of whats been read before and sometimes not even the author, but thats because ive read A LOT in quantitative terms and also been forced to do so thru small fragments of different authors.

So what the fuck did you learn, Johnny? For fact i dont know anything in its pure citational form, because im not an elephant or a computer... what i HAVE is a weird internal database of analytically organized "learns" arranged in the manner of say "learns of the human mind", "learns of mental health" etc etc which are overall general principles with their evidence/justification.

I hope you can understand what i mean.

I don't even know what to think about this, because it seems to have its origins around this:

Well, clinical psychologists don't necessarily have a hard science background at all.  I mean, one of the therapeutic branches of clinical psychology is the postmodern one:

Quote from: Wikipedia
Postmodern psychology says that the experience of reality is a subjective construction built upon language, social context, and history, with no essential truths.[65] Since "mental illness" and "mental health" are not recognized as objective, definable realities, the postmodern psychologist instead sees the goal of therapy strictly as something constructed by the client and therapist

She said she was a working scientist, Cain! This was not an appeal to authority, because she said she's just throwing information out there for free thinkers to consider. That's why it was important for her to point out that she's a working scientist...and a clinician...because you shouldn't just uncritically take her word for it...her working.scientist.word....clinician.

It saddens me to see colleagues that dont understand that subjectivity ends... WHERE THE BARSTOOL BEGINS!



In university, there were collegues that subjected themselves to pharma experiments for 90 dollars a month... im not sure thats legal in the USA.

Yeah, the corruption wouldn't be in the ruling, it would be in the consequences.

Which would likely be a slap on the wrist.

Same result, different means, yeah.

...I suspect it'd hold up in court -we know nobody reads those things, but they're still legal agreements. If somebody asks you to sign an informed-consent document, and you don't read it but sign it anyway, you've still given informed consent.

Yes, it will hold up in court because its the NSA, CIA and FBI's playground...

And Cram, I constantly work with informed consent paperwork... for every single thing you want to take video or audio or whatever, you have to specifically craft the IC format for it to explicitly say what it is for... you want to make a documentary? ICF... you want to release a paper? another ICF... you also want to release sound bits? yet another ICF.

So no, its just being uninformed to say that a TOS is informed consent.


LOL oversight


If motherfucking Myspace had a chat application instead of just inbox or wall, this would had never happened.

A plague on both your houses.

It goes with the tendency of allowing to discriminate customerd due to religious beliefs... where was that?

Free contraception to me just sounded something from fantasy land, and here we are.  :|


I'm convinced there's a truly appalling evil dead pun here and I can't for the life of me put my finger on it. Help me out pls?
[the "t" is silent]

Kiss my lips, sugarboy!

Everyday i pass a billboard in the highway for fedoras... i froth at the mouth and must contain myself from not veering straight into the gas station and ending it all.
