Hadn't heard of that, thanks.

Oh, the "Affluenza" family is back in the news:

Welcome to the forums, new spags.  :lulz:

Some points I don't believe were mentioned yet. The officer who shot the lad was not aware of the robbery or the suspect's description. After the State Highway Patrol Captain was assigned as the authority in the area, and then the looting resumed at night, local citizens stood in front of shop windows to prevent more damage. Nothing about this situation is homogeneous.

Very much. Also ties into the Zen koan, "What face did you wear before your parents were born?"

I feel like that's possibly discussed in more detail in the Kerry Thornley introduction in the Illuminet press edition (Purple).

I believe so, but Kerry misquotes it as Chaos instead of Disorder. That whole distinction was more of Greg's thing I guess.

Fucking hell, that's a great example of the split justice systems.

In other news, the DEA bribed AMTRAK (specifically one secretary) for your (yes, anyone's) travel data. Even better? If they had gone through official channels, it would have cost $0.

What's going to happen when some games go the way of cell phone games, and you can only beat some levels through either endless grinding, or spending real money on special super-awesome equipment that will make that level super-easy.

Oh, did you not hear of the absolute disaster that the mobile re-make of Dungeon Keeper evolved into?

Pee Dee. One of my best friends told me about the good book and it changed my life. Call me Old Dirty Pizzle, Owen, or whatever you like. I enjoy hip hop, but I'm interested in diversifying my playlist. I'm a writer in my free time, so expect me in literate chaotic. Questions?

Welcome aboard! Favorite Weird Al Yankovich song?

Never mind.
Unfortunately, admins had him pegged from the moment he signed up his alt account, and he was banned and went back to furiously masturbating into a sock, in his parents basement.

Quote
Stanford anthropologist Tanya Luhrmann found that voice-hearing experiences of people with serious psychotic disorders are shaped by local culture in the United States, the voices are harsh and threatening; in Africa and India, they are more benign and playful. This may have clinical implications for how to treat people with schizophrenia, she suggests.

"Our hunch is that the way people think about thinking changes the way they pay attention to the unusual experiences associated with sleep and awareness, and that as a result, people will have different spiritual experiences, as well as different patterns of psychiatric experience," she said, noting a plan to conduct a larger, systematic comparison of spiritual, psychiatric and thought process experiences in five countries.
