WTF

That is not hot...maybe 20 years ago, and if her accent didn't make me expect some sort of horrific medical interrogation.

Really.. is there ANYTHING a Farker won't call "smokin' hot"? Anything?
Subby needs to get out more

TL;DR. Even speaking as someone who is intimately familiar with neuroscience, loves hot chicks and addictions, and has a weird admiration for the Russians. The first page, and I didn't learn anything new. Bad subby. You got my hopes all in a tizzy. Maybe I'm just impatient, maybe I just have "POOR IMPULSE CONTROL" tattooed on my forehead from my benders in the Aleutian Islands a while back...maybe I just wanna nuke this place.

"[Trotsky's] more democratic ideas"

Yeah, ol' snowflake was just full of those. Like that time when he was pushing for democracy in Crimea where the instructions he gave were to "turn Black Sea red" (a true progressive, he was very concerned about wasting resources so folk were simply drowned en masse in the sea to save on ammo).

In short: fark that Volkow coont in the head with a pickaxe. And the journo too.

Stalin's and Hitler's relatives at least had the decency to keep the fark quiet

Well, her and one of her sisters have those wicked-looking angled eyebrows which are definitely sexy, but other than that I'm not sure how we're getting 'smoking hot'. Even a few decades younger I don't think she would have qualified for that.

As for the actual research, I'd be curious to know: Do dopamine receptors disappear over time only with drug addiction, or can the 'high' of another kind of addiction - porn, gambling, food, etc. - also have that same effect over time?

Hooked: Why bad habits are hard to break
April 29, 2012
In the battle against addiction, "just
say no" is magical thinking, says Dr.
Nora Volkow. She's the head of the
National Institute on Drug .............
`
....... Nora Volkow: Dopamine so happens to
be one of the main chemicals
regulating pleasure centers in the
brain. And as such, it's therefore the
mechanism by which nature motivates
our behavior.

I see everybody has already mentioned the subby's epic fail in determining what constitutes "smoking hot"....

...but more importantly, wtf is it with 60 Minutes putting ancient reporters on air? Morley Safer sounds as bad as Dick Clark did in the past couple of New Years' Ball drops. I understand the guy was iconic for decades, but at some point, retire these guys so we can REMEMBER THEM that way, rather than see them dragging on until they croak.

Maybe subby was trying to make a comment about how farkers have the bad habit of clicking on any link with the phrase 'smoking hot' in the headline.

Morley Safer is still alive? He's got to be 110 years old by now.

There are actually five dopamine receptor subtypes. There are changes in expression *ratios* in various parts of the brain associated with drug/alcohol addiction as well as addiction-like behaviors including gambling and obesity. the classic example of Volkow's research: Dopamine D2 receptor density is decreased in addicts. Other research has found the D3 receptors can increase with meth use. D1 receptors may or may not change, but lower levels of expression are associated with poorer decision-making. Various behavioral phenotypes (e.g., novelty- and sensation-seeking are correlated with certain levels of D2/D3 receptor expression...it's all very complicated still.

I accidentally tuned in 60 Minutes last night and caught this. it was very interesting and what she had to say about addiction was good too. And Morley Safer sounds fine.

As an ex-drunk, I assure you that I'd take that drug in a heartbeat. Well not now, because I don't need it. But when I was trying to quit drinking......put it this way, I voluntarily took a drug where I had to sign a paper saying that if I drank while on it and died, the doctors were not at fault.

/Yes, I drank on it.

No...my handle doesn't really mean anything to me.
I was gonna be Elvis_Autopsy_Jumpsuit but then I'm not a huge Elvis fan, so I wouldn't get the jokes that people would probably ask me.

The cross-dresser was a pretty cool dude when I first met him, farmer/ hippie type that just enjoyed wearing womens clothes. He started to turn weird though, asked people to start calling him Natalie. I think he started out doing it to get attention and to tag the occasional hot coed who thought he was exotic. When cross dressing became the dominant part of his personality I bailed as a friend. NTTAWWT, it's just not very interesting, it's like being friends with someone who's constantly trolling you.
