Somehow a completely dysfunctional misfit sets himself up as an expert on NGOs, group therapy, charitable organizations AND the deeper ethical issues of our time (just as a sideline). And goes on and on and on and on about it even though the forum he's polluting gets its panties in a knot when someone questions an issue as worthless as 'dirty electricity'. Only in Hooferville. They're despicable.
The idea that seeing Pete and Roger uncomfortably sitting on a vintage motor scooter would be anything more than a novelty is ludicrous

And the expert has this to say about hypnosis:
Don't know anything about what's going with hypnosis. From what others have said about something to do with the power of suggestion I'm guessing there's some kind of authority figure issues when that authority tells another person to do something they wouldn't have thought up on their own. If someone doesn't want to do something and suddenly just changes their mind to do it on their own without anyone telling them, is that hypnosis?
This implied "authority figure" presence is what pisses me off when someone sees me across the street and points to me and says "Come here" and I do! Is it my curiosity of what that person wants that lets my guard down and my self respect of being an "authority figure" and telling others to come to me? Police like to do this and I fall for it every time. If I've broke a law I'm not aware, it's his job to walk across the street to address me about it.
Newspapers (in physical form or online) are better than any TV news.
Not my town's newspaper.
However there's a new publication I now receive that is business focused mailed to me for free called Impact but all it talks about is new startup businesses, city council decisions and other government activities that affect business and economy in our town. But unfortunately both newspaper's ink and paper dust makes me sneeze and irritates my sinuses. I don't want to pay for an online subscription because there isn't that much news my local newspaper covers.
I'm just irritated by the fact the most sophisticated technology we have at delivering information far quicker than looking it up online or at the library is our TV news networks. I don't need to know everything going on in the world but for gripes sake do they have to rebroadcast repeatedly the same stories across 3 days?
You can subscribe to online versions of just about any paper, and a yearly subscription should be under 20 bucks. Try the NY Times or Washington Post, you'll get a more liberal slant with the Times, and a more conservative one with the Post. News services like Reuters are also excellent. As far as Texas goes, how about the Houston Chronicle?
Well to give you the shortest answer on why I don't want to do that I'll quote Chauncey Gardener from the movie Being There..."I like to watch TV".
So do I. But TV news is no way to get the news, and with all the options available it makes no sense to not subscribe to at least one on line publication. Besides, looking at a computer screen is almost like watching TV. Isn't it?
TV news is headlines. You know about as much as you did before you watched.
But I have to read a lot of words and my allotted attention span for reading words is used up at SHF which is much more fun than reading words of things spoon fed to me by people who think they know better on what words I'm suppose to read.
Good grief I felt I suddenly became mentally challenged just writing that response. Stupid words! You make me feel stupid. I need moving pictures. daaaaah, duh, make the moving pictures come back! :drool:
Yes, and I just love Inside Edition. Just watched an episode before posting here. Haven't watched it since the early '90's after coming home from work when I had a job. That news magazine has been around for decades it seems and it still gives me a kick in my step and a "make you wanna' watch" feeling especially their opening theme. Puts me in a good mood for some reason.

The shit (no pun intended) that people share in Hoofyville:
I've had the same concerns about prepping and the colonoscopy itself when it comes to affecting my heart rate. With me when I'm on the stool while passing stuff through that area and out the sphincter my heart just pounds away. Does the same when I drink cold water. Sometimes when I get up too fast it does this. It's not irregular beating, but just pounding. Scares the crap out of me. It's been that way since I was a child.
