    Well, it just has to happen. Arab terrorists decide to kill a lot of people in England and nobody decides to give a fuck. Theresa May, for all the praise I've given her, has proven to be a dissapointment, especially considering her belief of essentially creating a UK intranet. You guys voted for the wrong candidate to lead that party, but now that I think about it, who knows if there's a single person in politics in England at this point who can save their country.

    Godspeed to the victims of the London Bridge attacks.

    My guess as to the time of the next attack: https://www.timeanddate.com/...ack&font=serif&csz=1

    You damned whippersnappers have two disorders for every personality trait, don't you? Back in my day, this was called being an arsehole.

    I, and this is an opinion, seems I have to include these overly long warnings so you understand this, don't think these need to be diagnoseable. I mean, to me, this seems like bad parenting more than bad brain. Kids are naturally the worst things in the history of anything ever and unless they're rebellious little shits it's generally the job of the parent to raise them right. I understand that this isn't always possible and a lot of the time outside influences can have their toll, especially in the age of instant media without major regulation, but it's entirely preventable.I, and this is an opinion, seems I have to include these overly long warnings so you understand this, don't think these need to be diagnoseable.

    Really it's not the growing number of diagnoses that are the problem, it's the issue of side effects of medications for existing disorders overlapping and creating new problems that get diagnosed as different things.

    I suppose that can indeed affect people, drugs that modify the brain's functions on one way or another probably aren't the best for its development, but conduct disorder I've read can just disappear after age 18 and not grow into ASPD, when it's not drug induced. My main thing here was that some things now attributed to these two conditions are things that most of the population does. "Lying to get out of things you have obligations to do", and yes, that is a legitimate symptom says the New York Times, is something I'm fairly sure most of the population has done once or twice.I suppose that can indeed affect people, drugs that modify the brain's functions on one way or another probably aren't the best for its development, but conduct disorder I've read can just disappear a...See more

    Wow, Vidi Nation seems to be getting quite political. I'm not surprised by the article, Socialism is great as long as your not the one paying for it.

    You do realize Denmark imports nuclear energy right? What, did you of all people seriously think they were getting by on wind power alone?

    You're looking for a job at a nuclear power plant?

    It's not exactly the hardest job in the world (maybe tedious at times, but so is security officer), it pays well, and I'd be providing a service with a guarantee of perpetual demand. Like the food industry, power is a necessary consumable.

    Ahh, OK. I never used annotations myself, so I guess I wouldn't notice the editor being gone. This also explains why they keep showing up on some of the videos that I watch.

    "they just took an ICBM to the editor" that's quite the odd wording coming from someone who supports nuclear power and thinks the left hates it because of Hiroshima...

    ICBMs aren't exclusively nuclear. It's like saying cars are exclusively petrol-fueled. Even if it were, saying something got "nuked" is so common now that it's just common speech. It's not like it's incompatible anyway, imagine if a motorhead couldn't talk about car crashes or drive-by shootings because he likes cars.ICBMs aren't exclusively nuclear.

    You didn't say "nuked" and I highly doubt you view the people who you consider to be "most liberals" smart enough to care if ICBMs can possibly not be nuclear or otherwise non-green.

    No, but again, "that's quite the odd wording coming from someone who supports nuclear power", you were the one bringing it up. And I don't consider the left too stupid not to do research. I consider the /far left/ so, and then the rest of the left smart enough to do research, but not very receptive to alternate knowledge. But hey, that's a problem with everyone ever. I do it plenty, I'm sure you do it too subconsciously. The idea of confirmation bias is a lot older than we are.No, but again, "that's quite the odd wording coming from someone who supports nuclear power", you were the one bringing it up.

    What is odd, is that Jerkface can't decide if he wants to bring ZC back. I hope for people's sanity he doesn't, but ya never know when you're dealing with HIM.

    I can't be the only one detecting racial undertones, right? And this is from the same class pushing the liberal make friends with LGBTQIABCDEFP+ people becaise otherwise you're a bigot.

    It's not that I literally see racial undertones, just that it's possible.

    Okay, that's pretty funny. By the way, I'm not a Muslim, but I'd be lying if I said they didn't have a way with harmonies.
