I don't remember all the science behind it because I have no memory and I'm not that smart but with some perseverance (the studies on brain chemicals and stuff are surprisingly scattered) you can find some very interesting theories.
Thanks, that is interesting. I actually almost used the word "addicting" in my original post, because that's how it feels sometimes. I'll have to look for some of these theories, I'm curious as to how the cognitive aspects interact with the biological ones, and (in a more philosophical sense) why.

I wonder how many people abandoned the forum because of the recent security breach.

was there REALLY a security breach?

I haven't noticed anything different/had any problems.


I suppose the webmaster and perhaps the moderators would know for sure.

Yeah, the term "breach" implies that some individual hacked the SPW with ill intent. There's no evidence to indicate that. The software is just out of date and the site has been especially glitchy lately. Hopefully the webmaster will do something soon.

Yeah the word Addiction doesn't sound like an overstatement when you listen the same song in loop from the moment you wake up until you go to sleep, for days and days....

When i'm acutely depressed, sometimes i've replayed the same (dreary) song over and over in my head, for days on end. I couldn't stop it!

Or.... When life gives you lemons, forcefully throw them back at life, really hard.



It is quite amazing how totally brainwashed many humans can allow themselves to become.
Watching the results can make you drift between shocked, sad, frustrated, angry, homicidal, sympathetic and defeated.

I don't think i can "so******e" comfortably with people, even with alcohol. It's always hard work - too much hard work. That could be a reason i never so******e, so that i don't constantly get drained during and after people. I struggle to get the conversation upbeat, as really, i'm sad & negative in general.

'One more drink and you're sailing away' from the hardship/stress of so******ing. Now that would be useful for me.

For some reason i don't stressed when it's online (but probably would get stressed with video chat; less stressed with instant chat).

Anyone watched 'The Handmaidens Tale'? Strange but quite good.

Billy Corgan wrote this song (Spaceboy) with his little brother Jesse as his inspiration. Jesse was born with mild cerebral palsy, Tourette’s syndrome, heart problems, and a chromosomal disorder.

“Spaceboy” deals with the frustration of feeling as though you don’t fit in. Corgan can identify with his brother although he was born with no handicap. In a 1994 interview, the Pumpkins frontman describes what he feels are similarities between him and his brother:

I feel our lives are similar…Freaks of nature, freaks of society, I always keep going back to something by Henry Miller. No matter how much he smiled, told jokes, shook hands, patted people on the back. People still looked at him funny, they still sensed something wasn’t right. I’ve always felt that way, that no matter how normal I appear, I was treated differently.

On a lighter note (see my prior posts this morning), Taco Bell's Grand Scrambler is very good.

Having been raised by and with a bunch of neurotic, paranoid, difficult wimmin, I'd answer say that wus true, but ah'd be making an unfair generalisation. So...
