  1. "After listening for almost twenty-five years to the stories my patients tell me about sociopaths who have invaded and injured their lives, when I am asked, “How can I tell whom not to trust?” the answer I give usually surprises people. The natural expectation is that I will describe some sinister-sounding detail of behavior or snippet of body language or threatening use of language that is the subtle giveaway. Instead, I take people aback by assuring them that the tip-off is none of these things, for none of these things is reliably present. Rather, the best clue is, of all things, the pity play. The most reliable sign, the most universal behavior of unscrupulous people is not directed, as one might imagine, at our fearfulness. It is, perversely, an appeal to our sympathy."

  2. The way I've always heard it is, when someone is both the hero and victim in their story.

  3. Keep your head up, look past the person, walk like you're busy. They'll step aside.

  4. This is my strategy for walking through a crowd at a football game. Look at your destination, not the people. It's amazing how people just move.

  5. Someone gonna be like that's a terrible tattoo, then see the cat and be like that's a great tattoo

  6. I could be wrong on this, and my understanding on this is US based. But I've heard it that we capitalize Black because it is like capitalizing a country descriptor, like Canadian, or French, or American. That's where you get Black American, French American, Mexican American. But why Black and not a country in Africa? Because most of their ancestors came over as slaves. It isn't like records were kept from where. Sure, there are DNA tests you can take to get a general idea of where, but there isn't usually some strong connection to that region you can point back to and say, yeah my great grandfather talked about the old country. Black, at least in the US, is a kind of catch-all sub-nationality that Black people experience. And there is a difference between America and Black America. If there was a huge group of white people who came over here at some point and could only trace their ancestry by these new DNA tests, then I think you'd have a case for White being capitalized, but instead of White, we can use French, or German, or any other country or culture as that descriptor. The argument can be made that there is a White America to go along with Black America. However, the issue there is that White America is redundant. White America is just America, as it is the majority culture.

  7. No, and I wish we had something other than the Brotherhood in there as well.

  8. No kidding. Radio hosts for every team will have a coach or manager on their show, lob a bunch of softballs, then next segment talk about all the shit they did wrong the last game. It's standard.

  9. I get it man. They want to add more responsibility to your job they gotta pay you more for it. He ain't paid to talk to the media.

  10. In fairness I'm going bankrupt to own nothing so I guess it's a step up?

  11. I mean, if we were to execute everyone in the world I guess it would solve a lot of problems

  12. Not about the cities, but I remember a post a LONG time ago. The poster worked at a business in a downtown area where this one guy, like a full on middle aged man, would run around the area in a cape and this homemade superhero costume, just jumping off of benches and stuff, throwing punches and making sound effects, things like that. Guy said he was always around doing it. Then one day he sees the guy just walking by his business in a business suit, calm as can be, holding a dry cleaning bag over his shoulder with his cape inside. Like, man, that's a town character right there.

  13. English is impenetrable. I read a saying a long time ago that English grabs other languages, pulls them into a back alley, and mugs them for their spare grammar and syntax. Sounds about right.
