Maybe it is demons

The latest explanation for schizophrenia published in a real journal: Hallucinations are a cardinal positive symptom of schizophrenia which deserves careful study in the hope it will give information about the pathophysiology of the disorder. We thought that many so-called hallucinations in schizophrenia are really illusions related to a real environmental stimulus. One approach to …

You know who else is bearded & drinks alcohol? ME. Also, Jesus.

paul-roof-m

Charleston Southern University has fired Professor Paul Roof for allowing his face to appear on a beer bottle. "They said that this was not an image for the Christian environment and that it may seem to students that I am endorsing the use of alcohol," says Roof, who taught at the university for seven years …

Go home, Wisconsin, you’re drunk

bar-grocerymap

This is a map plotting the ratio of bars to grocery stores across America. What is up with Wisconsin? Do you people need a lot of beer to wash down all that cheese? I notice the brown bleeds over into Minnesota and the Dakotas as well. Maybe it’s an upper midwest thing. Or all the …

The devil’s new scheme to DESTROY CIVILIZATION!

devilsbathroom

The supreme wickedness: gender-neutral bathrooms. Last year, they made the bathrooms in the science building where I work unisex. I should have spotted it as a satanic plot right away. (One thing I’ve already noticed: the formerly women’s restroom smells much nicer.)

Bigfoot_2012_DVD

This story about the the market for Bigfoot erotica was only plausible up to a point. Obviously, I have no problem believing that an attractive woman might have sex with a hideous hairy grunting beast, and even enjoy it, but the little details tripped me up. 1. The Sasquatch’s name is…Leonard. 2. The author is …

That’s awesome!

DrSkySkull thinks it is anticlimactic, but I’m kind of impressed. To find out what it would look like if a person fell into lava, some investigators made up a bag of 30kg of organic camp trash and threw it into a lava flow (they apparently couldn’t get any real human volunteers). Spectacular! After I die, …

Nothing good can come of this.

Not racist at all

Learn from a Nobelist in economics: all you have to do to not be a racist is prefix all your racist comments with the claim that you have no racial prejudices, like Friedrich Hayek. Robert Chitester: Going back to the question I asked you about people you dislike or can’t deal with, can you make …

Harken back to the satanic panics of yesteryear

Ah, the 1980s. When every preschool was a hotbed of satan worshipping child abusers, police departments had ‘experts’ on ritual murder, daytime talk TV would run very special episodes on cultic cannibal orgies, and Jack Chick published Dark Dungeons. You’ve read it, right? The story about Dungeons & Dragons giving you actual magical powers that …

The sexbots are everywhere!

atm

After that short post yesterday pointing out the abuse of photoshop to distort women’s bodies, I was briefly harangued by a loon who announced that I obviously did not understand the concept of sexual selection. women’s bodies today are changing due to sexual selection whether you like it or not. Humans use tools to sculpt …
