contrary to popular belief, bipolar people tend to commit suicide more often during the manic stage

There's a sapolsky lecture on depression that goes into that really well. Think it was to do with psychomotive retardation (sp?) And coming out of that phase is the big danger point. Still depressed but now enough energy to do something about it, often not in a good way.

BBC has pictures of a suspect being treated by medical personnel.  He's a black guy with a goatee beard.

Some reports are naming the man as Abu Izzadeen (AKA Trevor Brooks), a spokesman for Al Ghurabaa, a British Muslim organisation banned under the Terrorism Act for glorification of terrorism.

Closely associated with the Anjem Choudary "Islam4UK" crowd, btw.

Allegedly jailed for 2 years in 2016 though.  Doesn't necessarily mean he wasn't released early, for good behaviour or whatever, but definitely requires verification now.

Any predictions for the next few days? Suspect may will revive various shitty bills she tried to push as home sec. If so they will pass without any argument or scrutiny.

Channel 4 says it has confirmed he was the arrested man.

Question for all you spags:

If you have an online friend and you are concerned that they might be bipolar, do you risk offending them and say something? Or let it be?

Online friend? Doubt if it'd make a difference one way or another. Unless they're asking you. Upswing or downswing?

I'm not qualified to answer that Nigel. If they need help then pointing that out is what friends do, on occasion it's the last act of the friendship.


Glad to hear Roger has worthy employment once more.

For my part been through several meetings and will be seeing a weekly councilor and am 2 days into a start up on a medicine called Rexulti.. I  really wish I knew who gets paid to name these things and how much. Have an appointment to get assistance applying for disability benefits next week. Otherwise just getting by finding cleaning the dojo I live above somewhat soothing and a welcome distraction. They have wifi, a fridge, cooking gear, and exercise equipment all available to me for my simple services in cleaning the facilities. I'm getting by.


In other news... I think this writer has a point.

I would need some of this "Golden Ticket" spoken of to be certain.

I'm thinking they would dual wield - bastard sword in one hand, attack falcon in the other

Dual wielding, yes but not that. More likely flails or anything similar that has as much chance as damaging you as the enemy.

Obviously, no armour.

WTF? Have you seen how they play rugby? Be fucking covered in the shit.

Who's got the best reporting at the moment on the suspect, BBC?

BBC as far as I can tell.

Eyewitness reports again proving to be worthless.
