If someone does the Fine, youre right, Im clearly a terrible person, Im Satan, Im the worst person alive, I should just die thing in response to criticism of their harmful behavior, they are trying to manipulate people and flip the situation around so that they look like a victim.

As a neuroscientist I have to disagree with the perception that anyone is doing mathematical modeling of cognitive intelligence, yet; intelligence as an economist defines it, yes, but economists are worlds away from actual cognition.


Although it is outside the purview of this organization to offer personal advice, we can say -- without assuming any liability -- that previous experience indicates (and recent market studies corroborate) that given the present condition of the marketplace, continuing with your present course of action is likely to result in substantial in

There seems to be a thriving trade in human body parts from NATO troops in Afghanistan:

Weird, I wonder what's going on with this sort of thing...

THough, I do recall a case of grave desecration in Fitchburg, MA a couple of years ago where some guy stole a skull from a cemetary and made it into an ashtray. Not a new thing but always wtf to hear about.

Ive heard of some guy breaking into a mortuary, ripping the head of somebody (some-body, get it? HAHA), later doing a head shriking sort of thing on it, and finally put it in an aquarium.

This seems to be a trophy thing, among the troops.  As far as I've read at least.  I know it's not exactly the same kind of trophy taking as, say, serial killers do, but it's close enough to make me think about what all these death squads are gonna do once their service is up.

Because deep down in our monkey brains -we know for a fact-  owning the skull of your enemy is owning his soul.

I like the idea, but I already have a skull (other than the occupied one).  It's a bottle formerly full of good vodka that perches on one of my ominously cluttered shelves. 

I don't personally see anything wrong with keeping old body parts around.  This body part double standard drives me nuts too!  It's jsut fine to have my own medically extracted skeleton parts hanging around, but the moment I'm dead it becomes a crime? 
Anyone ever think about how Richter inhabits the same reality as you and just scream and scream and scream, but in a good way?   :lulz:

Oh, this seriously worries me.
Im guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk, Charles Wick said. It was very complicated.
