“Then why don't you get up a few minutes early and scramble a couple eggs and drop them between a couple slices of bread? you certainly don't need to be a genius to do that.”

“Lets see...Get home at 12am from bar job, up at 3:30 am.  10 min for coffee and emails then time to get ready for school.  Until you've walked in my shoes, run in my schedule, you have no right to tell me what I should do.”

“Is it just me, but is all this pontificating about a 1.2% variation in sales a bit overblown? There are any number of reasons why you can see a quarterly variation that small. Certainly all the people crowing about McD's imminent demise are overdoing it! An every McD's I see lines wrapped around the store at peak hours.”

In fact they're aren't allowed (legally) to call them that because there isn't a drop of milk in them.”

“Working at fast food only qualifies you for another fast food job. They don't teach a single transferable skill.
The fact is , despite the oft debunked 'skills gap' rhetoric our economy is mostly producing low skill low wage 'fast food' jobs. Increasingly there is nothing better to move up to,particularly if like most people , you don't have a college degree.”

Psychopaths' Brains Aren't Wired To Show Empathy, Study Finds

“Here's a moral question. If this condition is the result of an innate quality of the brain then theoretically it would be possible to screen for it in children. Perhaps even very young ones.
If we can , just what should we do about it? I mean if it's possible to detect incipient psychopathy in, say a 6 year old, what do we do about them? What do we do with them? Or is a child's brain in too plastic a state for that to be reliable?
What do we do if a reliable screening for psychopathy in adults shows someone is in fact a psychopath? What do we do with them? They really are a neurological other in a sense they will always be at war with the rest of us. What do we do with that knowledge?”

“Child experts agree that at the age of 5 years, a person's personality is permanently established, any changes in his/her character is 'taught'. It might be a good idea to have such examinations available for troubled kids to see if these traits are evident. What to do with them? Not a clue..”

“Not being able to form close relationships will cause problems for them. ..but with help they do not present a problem to society. Its easier for them to hurt or kill others ..but there are other ways to teach morality without using empathy. If others around them understand their deficit it will make it easier to deal with the interpersonal problems.”

“What every society that abandons its humanity would do with them: lock them in a cage forever or start the roundups and executions.

This is the salacious key to paradise for government: thought crime punishable by execution. The total subjugation of a population. This would be more pleasurable than sex for the average bureaucrat. They want it like dogs want gravy.”

Craig 212 on Apr 26, 2013 at 02:23:05

“Just keep an eye on them, I guess. That's all we can do. Most people might hear the word "psychopath" and assume murderer, but a clinical psychopathy diagnosis doesn't necessary mean you'll ever do anything illegal.”

“Well I'm going to give everyone a heart attack by agreeing with a Republican, particularly on gun control.
Only a very tiny percentage of muders are committed using any type of longarm.(About 3%-4%) which includes 'normal rifles and shotguns.
Overwhelmingly murders are committed by handguns (about 57%) and the Justice departments own survey shows criminals overwhelmingly prefer large caliber handguns to commit crimes due the their avalilability, effective lethality at the ranges that typical violent crimes are committed , and concealabilty. Put simply, nobody is walking around pulling stickups with AR-15s.

So yes I have to come down on his side of the argument on this regard.
Good laws can only be based on correct information.”

the eyeroller on Apr 10, 2013 at 13:47:54

“that's true, of course, but the new law is kind of aimed at preventing mass shootings, not really home invasions or carjackings.

so really, these stats are sort of apples and bowling balls.

the great fallacy fo the right is the failure to see the importance of context and bringing up handgun stats in the argument over assault weapons and how to prevent newtown-style mass shootings is an attempt to distract the discussion because they know they can;t win on actual facts.

again, the stats are true, but don't really address the issue being debated...”

“i hear ya... and it all makes sense.

but like someone said earlier, you might want to talk to the LAPD about the weapons they are up against every day.”

gerald4 on Apr 8, 2013 at 13:16:58

“Fort Hood has very strict gun control.

An Army psychiatrist conducted mass murders at the Ft. Hood Army Military Base, in one of their designated "Gun Free Area" at the base.

The Psychiatrist doing the mass murdering knew this, so this might have been one of his reasons for committing mass murder in that designated "Gun Free Area" on that military base.”

“Uh dude, can you do math? According to the numbers 86.5% of graduates are not in this predicament. And the simple fact is that the wage difference between college grads and non-grads is the largest it's been since the end of WW2.
The simple truth is that in this society NOT getting a degree is about the worst mistake you can make. The fact is that the SMALL minority of graduates working low level jobs will have a chance to move ahead in the future. Without a degree in this economy you are pretty much relegated to the fry station for life.”
