BronyMedic: Oh well. I'm sure this will result in a reasonable and calm debate, and not devolve into senseless name calling and pointing at potatoes.
Ennuipoet: I actually feel sorry for these people, it must be terrible to live your life in a constant of irrational fear. The problem is, this fear is not ameliorated by a security blanket or a teddy bear, but with god and guns, which make my life and the life of other rational human beings harder to live. I feels as though I need to tell my parents, who are deep into the Conservative Fear mindset, the same thing they told me. There is no monster under your bed, or in the the White House, you are imagining it, now shut up and go to sleep.
Mrtraveler01: Did Fark surrender the Obvious tag to the UN Black Helicopters like Obama wants to do with our nation's sovereignty?
Jim_Callahan: Ah, I see. So the article's assertion is based on a slightly modernized version of phrenology.
Alphax: (reads article) Yeah, nothing we didn't already know.
PonceAlyosha: Jim_Callahan: Ah, I see. So the article's assertion is based on a slightly modernized version of phrenology.It's not as if there is fifty years of easily verified experimental, lesion and clinical case data that suggests that GASP, parts of the brain are specialized for different faculties and functions.
Jim_Callahan: I'm laughing because I am familiar with the body of scientific knowledge regarding regional brain function, dude, not because I'm not. Nodes and regions are important in function, but barring extreme deviations the relative size of various regions means pretty much nothing in psychological terms. Activity, yes (sometimes). Size, no.
Mrbogey: Somewhere someone has a gun and until we ban it, no one is safe.They pulled an old article for the trolling lulz
stoli n coke: Is this new finding found in the medical journal of "SHIAT ANYONE COULD HAVE TOLD YOU?"
Zombalupagus: FTA: Hezbollah and Hamas "are using Mexico as a way to penetrate into the southern part of the United States," possibly with the aid of "terror babies" carried in pregnant women's wombs.Wow.That conspiracy was new to me so I followed the link. The video of Gohmert arguing with Anderson Cooper is, indeed, priceless. It's basically "Sir, what is your evidence ---" "WHY ARE YOU ATTACKING ME?!?!?!"
BronyMedic: This is how you troll, folks. Simple, concise, off-topic.
Jim_Callahan: Looking at MRIs of a large sample of young adults last year, researchers at University College London discovered that "greater conservatism was associated with increased volume of the right amygdala"Ah, I see. So the article's assertion is based on a slightly modernized version of phrenology.No, no, that's totally legit. I'm not laughing, it's just a spasm I picked up from an imbalanced chakra. Once I get my sublaxations cleared at my registered Chiropracter and take a few glasses of this really powerful homeopathic stuff my shaman prescribed, it'll clear right up.
Jim_Callahan: And in neurology you don't have the easy answer of claiming you found out a random historical figure was gay.
Mrbogey: Somewhere someone has a gun gay sex and until we ban it, no one is safe.
Mrbogey: Farah says: "Who says fear is the only function of the amygdala?"
