I watched that video where Trump was talking about how Obama "berated and insulted" a pro-Trump protestor at a rally, side-by-side with the actual footage of him telling the crowd not to boo him and being super respectful. It's crazy.... say whatever lies you want and it becomes true in the minds of your supporters.

Here's a preview of the portrait I mentioned in the other thread. I'm posting this here as I'm dying to upload it but I don't want Meri to see it before she gets it.
But anyway, I decided to try out an idea I'd had of seeing if people within the Hannibal fandom would like to have a portrait drawn with a character. Might be a way of making some money and I can use this as a demo
I think democracy is an illusion to make people think they have a right to pick a leader. Money rules everything and what it wants it gets. Leaders are just a puppet and a person to blame. Just my thoughts =\
Unfortunately what those leaders represent can have a very real impact in terms of the cultural psyche and what kind of prejudices electing them can legitimise. This has been evident in the UK since the Brexit vote.
Hahaha James, you always know just how to say what im thinking
Ohh man! Haha and Sarah, of course you'd say that! no, honestly, I agree with you. Buy for arguments sake, its fun causing a riot...well, u know what I mean.
So, oh em gee Paul! Lol ok ok, get where you're coming from now, and shit man! If you...oh man I almost posted some of this f ed up thinking of this serial killer in Intensity. Ohh it would be perfect for this conversation. So weird, like he was suffering something himself, relishing in the pain so he could enjoy his victims suffering more. And and...
"Anyone can smell a rose and enjoy the scent. But he has long been training himself to feel the destruction of its beauty when he crushes the flower in his fist."
Oh there's a whole poetic thing here..
Oh there was more but I guess I ws too afraid to tke pic of that? ?? Idk but it's "intense" they wnt to feel the itensity! Idk I forget it now. Yeah, so mybe there is some nAture, or maybe thesefolks just experienced trauma. (thats not typically the case tho, right?)
ohhh, ok so now this is invalid...but goes with hannibal stuff. Aye! My brain!
Didnt you say it yourself, you mmight be capable of empthiing with a killer?? Sorry sorry if I misquoted. Well that ws obviously my take. Eek! Idk if I would wnt to be able to do that...omg now I am relly curious wht the hell u r wtching in that show. Seriously tho.
lol I wasn't following any particular train of thought, this wasn't to do with the TV show. It came from me mentioning that I get my empathy from my mother when wishing her a happy birthday this morning, which made me wonder if empathy really is something you "grow" or if some people just have it and others don't have the capacity and then I started thinking about a book I read called "The Psychopath Test" which said that they don't.

Oh and here's that podcast if anyone has a spare two hours.
Honestly, I think the second hour is a bit crap because I was exhausted from walking around and talking (I'd already walked 50 minutes to the meeting point) but I'm surprised at how coherent I was in the first half, as I always feel like I'm chasing after a runaway train and grasping for the controls when I'm talking.

lol I didn't say you were wrong, James, I said you were using it differently. ;p there a few types of empathy though (cognitive empathy, emotional empathy, and somatic empathy) so we're probably throwing our darts at different points on the board. But the reason I asked in the first place was because one trait of a psychopath is that they lack the capacity for empathy so I was wondering if that was something that they lose or if it's how they're born. I'd imagine danzia has some interesting insights

I think you guys are using "empathy" differently to how it is in my mind.
I'm sorry for them, Morri. I've mentioned that my first girlfriend at school, when I was 8-9, died of a brain tumour and I often think of her and her parents. I guess all you can say is that people do manage to rebuild their lives and often turn such things into a benefit for others by raising awareness or funds. I think I could accept my death more easily if I knew it would mean that others would be helped as a result.

Random question for you guys.... do you think that empathy comes from nature or nurture? If it's the former, do we all have it and it's suppressed in some?

littl3birdy: Hey nessdeyali , bumps and loops are part of the process. Combing out the dreads and restarting will just lead to the same result. Check out some of the timelines here and you will see lots of bumps.

sketchymagpie: Hey V. It does occasionally, but the problem is that a lot of people use Tapatalk to access the site on their phones and you can't see this chat box on that, so of the small number of active users here currently, even less of them know this exists ha.
