Everything is dicks with Freud. Because unsatisfied rich white women.

My mistake I thought we had moved past Freud. You also have to put it in perspective like Platos (wait sorry Aristotle) theories on natural science were way off but look what he had to work with.


Fair enough. As a psych degree holder I just get my feathers ruffled by that pop psychology stuff referencing dead science...which does include Jung. He's LESS awful than Freud but still wackadoo. It's like autism vaccine flat earther wrong.

You should try reading a book about archaeology, it's all "phallic shaped this, Cocktower that, oh wait, this one's a boob the other thing".


Lol! Cylinders and domes exist in nature too. I'm pretty sure a tree doesn't think about it's cock n ball shape.

That's funny I also have a Bach in psych. The thing that bothers me is every time they show the field you always get that dirty prison building where people are getting electrocuted, lobotomized, etc. by a gross uncaring staff.

He was right in one thing if nothing else humans are very preoccupied with sex.

That was an incredibly recent thing. Like "in our lifetimes" for many people. Late as the 1970s. And ECT is used still today and extremely helpful to drug resistant therapy.

Yep I got a BS in BS.

Yeah but I don't think it's the WHY to everything. I think it's because we as a species are bored. We don't have to fight for survival all the time. Sex is fun.

And animals are that way in general. Animals masturbate constantly when cooped up in the zoo. Society is our zoo.


well the elcetro shock therapy is used for drug resistant patients yes and severing the left and right cortex is used to treat seizzures but that is not what I'm talking about. I'm talking about that american horror story type stuff.

Sadly even trepidation isn't that old but I would like to see a show have something recent but I suppose that doesn't gain as many ratings.


...but I get what you're saying. A few people f~~$ed up and now everyone thinks we're modern Frankensteins who will do horrible things in the name of science. It's messed up.


I still have heartburn from a mediocre steak I had last night. F##$ you Texas Roadhouse.

Not just for the heartburn. My medium steak looked EXACTLY like my girlfriend's medium rare. I should've ordered medium well.

Anyway I'm off to turn leftovers into steak and eggs. I'm not wasting food and I'd rather not sleep after eating that again. Breakfast in bed for my sick girl.


Trepidation is my go to to show how fast science can move. We went from hitting you in the head with a rock to little pills at break neck speed.

Just because we were on the subject and I can not express this enough. The truly evil psychologists are the industrial organizational psychologists. Those people are Satan.


Tell me if I'm wrong but does anyone that has studied psychology always seem like they have extreme personalities (myself included?) Please let me know.

I have my degree in psychology too, but without these people we would be nowhere.

With respect to Freud and sex, I would invite you to build a time machine, go back to his society and time period with your modern sensibilities, and try to sell anyone on modern sexuality, never mind psychology.

You would be in jail in about 5 minutes for gross indecency.

I agree! you really have to take into account the era there in just like any historical figure. People say Hemingway was great but imagine an author writing that stuff now.

Also in an era where tables had little dresses to keep you from seeing the legs because that was to sexual I appreciate Freud blowing that stuff out of the water.

Dear Cool Kids:

Do I

2. Drive in icky traffic to go pick up good comic books and get a really good Burger for dinner
3. Go home, swig some Bourbon, and fall into bed?

1 + 2? Drive in icky traffic to go pick up good comic books and get a really good Burger for dinner, then eat fancy M&Ms at home as desert?

It's nice going to a company meeting so they can yell at people for sick day abuse and have the manager say "Oh no, you don't have to stay, this doesn't concern you or your coworker".


Every meeting I have is like that (this isn't about me) But I have to sit through them anyways :P

Captain Yesterday's guide to getting laid in two easy steps.

1) When it's time to update emergency contact info list your relationship with your wife as "wife, soulmate"

2) Tell her you did that, preferably with a picture of the form you can send to her on her lunch break.

On the voice recording thing, I think I sound about an octave higher to others/on tape than I sound to myself, and I speak fairly quickly...which I think makes me sound to others like a hyperactive child.

...this may explain why my kids keep telling me I'm incredibly intimidating despite my height because the effect is basically Chiyo-chan from Azumanga Daioh making rapid-fire dry remarks.

I'm going to go ahead and at least steal step 1. Later however I'm still cruising off of proposing.

OKAY: Lisamarlene and Kjeldorn got closest.

I went home, ate the Unreal Candy Gems to raise my blood sugar, and went out for comics and tasty burger and am now home. Games for a half an hour, then bed.

I had a beer at the burger place so I probably don't need the bourbon, but we'll see.

What beers did they have?

I had a Unibroue witbier. Mild, citrusy, flavorful but lighter bodied so good with a heavy meal.

They also had... A Flying Dog IPA. A lager I don't remember the brewer. Something from Monument City. Another IPA because that's what all the hipsters drink these days. Weirdly nothing dark (like no porters or stouts).(Though I think they did in cans. This is my poor memory of what was on tap.)

On voices--Freehold, you sounded like a normal dude? Baritone pitch, IIRC.

I apparently always sound annoyed. I had a friend once tell me I was getting preachy and I was talking about ice cream or something. I was like dude, this is just my voice.

Why don't I own that series?


New manager is apparently giving me some sort of incentive which translates to $40 for her being late and me staying so I don't mind her running late today.

Yeah - for some reason (low sales?) finding anything darker than a bitter - Guinness aside - is often a problem, and IPAs are absolutely everywhere. Witbiers aren't really my thing, but I know what you mean - you don't want anything heavy with a meal like that.

In other news, I had forgotten how much I loathed cottage cheese until last night.


If shes not here by 9 however I'm gonna get real loopy. Last time I was here that late I couldn't remember my login. (my login is my name btw)

As (apparently) the failed-historian of the thread, I'll said that the bolded part is important for looking at an person, event or period even as closely related to our time as a single generation back.

It's been a particular bug-bear of mine, that people vehemently refuse to try to understand a particular (often touchy) historical subject without dragging present societal, cultural or legal constructs/values and ham-fisted applying them to such historical subject.

To give a quick examples:
The particularities around the German occupation of Denmark during WWII, and the Danish response in form of the cooperation policy was used, by our prime minister, as an argument in favour of joining the U.S invasion of Iraq 2003*.

*Very short version. Had a lot more twists and turns.

As for all the psychology stuff…
Eh not my field of expertise, so tend to look at it as a historian. Paradigms replacing each other with technological advances, new ideers forming and others fading.
Personally I'm often much more interested in hearing why and how people think and feel differently, then hearing about them having a imbalance in their brain chemistry

My ex-wife loooooves the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice...a little too much. She would put it on in the background ss she worked on art. (She's an artist, crafter, graphic designer, etc) Consequently I saw it a lot.

If it's at all historically accurate, Victorian Brits were weird as hell.

"I'm a man and I'm going swimming fully clothed with a long sleeve ruffled shirt and pantaloons"

"I'm a woman and I can't show an ankle but my teats are spilling the hell out of my dress, and we're about a sneeze away from nipple showing."

Weird.

TVE's Guide:

1) Get divorced.
2) Date a girl who's always DTF. I mean one who got hit by Dirty 30 as hard as a Mack Truck going pedal to the metal downhill in a rainstorm.
3) Insinuate you're even slightly horny.

Yours has fewer steps, admittedly, so I think you win, but damn if mine isn't easy.

I should've edited these into a single post but I'm tired. Girlfriend woke up all PTSD'd out from a nightmare. Her ex husband is a monster. If it weren't for alimony we kinda need...I told her to bleed him dry and file on the absolute last day for the statute of limitations. What happens to a prison guard who goes to prison is almost, but not quite, what he deserves. Almost. F~%@ing monster.

Random Nonsense:

(1) IPAs are a bane on humanity. Hipsters should be beaten within an inch of their lives and hung by their man buns. Oh, right! I need a reason. Er... for liking IPAs.

(2) Our choir director sent out the obligatory paperwork for the annual choir trip. Knowing full well that she never checks the "From" field, I responded with, "I don't feel comfortable sending my children on your trips. I have heard bad things about the chaperones."
She texted me that she had a moment of total panic before noticing the "From" field. I am proud. Mean, but proud.

(3) What sucks about being the only morning person in the family is their absolute reliance on you to remember ALL of their wake-up schedules, and to rely on you to remember them every morning. This morning Impus Minor wanted to be woken up at 5:45, Impus Major at 6:30, and GothBard at 6:30. Needless to say, I forgot GothBard because that wasn't her usual time.
What ever happened to setting alarm clocks, people?

(4) Microsoft (et al.) tirade of the day:

No, you are NOT that important to me:

I prefer a tidy desktop, with only my most-used programs or files on it. When I see desktops such as Impus Major's or my (now retired) co-workers, I wince. "How can you ever find anything?"
"Oh, I just spend a while searching."
Then you try to manage Windows 10. Not only does every program you ever install try to install a desktop shortcut (and considering how bad the Start menu is, I can hardly blame them), but whenever a program updates it does it, too. Or whenever you do something like create a new alias in Google Chrome.

So every fricking day I go from my very carefully-considered 8 desktop icons to 15-20 by day's end. Yes. Microsoft is adding at least SEVEN NEW DESKTOP ICONS A DAY!

FFS, Microsoft (and all programmers who write Windows programs), STOP THROWING S*** ON MY DESKTOP!!!

That is all.
