    Have you read his posts? He is obviously educated and experienced, he just spells like shit. Explain it with dyslexia or something similar if you want. PM him if you want clarifying.

    It is off-topic in my opinion.

    Anyway

    I think it's good to keep in mind that for most people, terms like insane and crazy are very relative to the speaker. So arguing between an African's POV and an Australian medic's can easily cause problems.

    The last I heard, insane was relative to the ability to cope in a specific society. On the other hand it could mean too tight of an integration or too loose a differentiation between axons. Sometimes I think insane means anyone put into a special ward.

    Meursalt, what were your experiences like? I meet a lot of guys from Somalia, Sudan, etc. and war-torn Europe all the way to Georgia. They come to China and HK for a better life. A lot of them are pretty off. This is in my mind no doubt due to violence and other environmental factors. Violence at a young age can really potentiate a lot of mental diseases and especially over a few generations.

    a lot of US researchers travel to Israel to study these sort of cases for example.

    All people who murder are. Let's keep this to the topic, shall we?

    To counter my position you have to demonstrate that it's possible to murder someone while being rational, and then being able to justify those actions to people, and for those justifications to be generally acceptable. You know you can't do this though which is why you haven't tried.


    Degrees of insanity, that's all. Giving them other names does not change this fact.


    Do you mean their ? Conscience, or consciousness, btw? Some people can murder because they are sociopaths and lack empathy, that would be a lack of conscience, some get enraged, and lose control, and lash out, that would be a temporary lack of conscious action. Which angle are you playing?

    You tell me, then, what someone has when they can't get their mind to stay in focus on something even when they love that subject, even when they and their family are at their wits' end with their lack of attention, even when they've been through the mill at school, even when they really want to make something of their life and not fail at every single subject and end up working in fast food or sleeping on cold concrete.

    You tell me what that is.

    You tell me what you think a 8 year old kid with Asperger's really has, when he struggles so hard to fit in he chooses to let a group of kids smash his head on the floor for fun just so they'll show him some approval. Yes, this was an actual kid who I met, not some hypothetical example I pulled out of my ass.

    You tell me what the fuck those things are down to.

    Come on, Meursalt, get your fucking cold blood over here and counter my point.

    Some other time. Only dropped in tonight to say hi to someone and laugh myself silly over Tnerb's thread that I, in my inebriated state, either completely missed or misunderstood the other night.

    See, now that's entertainment. This is just... boring.

    I'll take Tnerb's insanity over 90% of everything else I read here. Because, in there, occasionally, I'll find something to chew on. For the most part, you lot are just bloody tape recorders on continual playback.

    Here? Very much so. A symptom of the uninspired, unfortunately.

    You just want to categorise your abject failure to become the rock star you're continually told you could be as a mental illness. It's common in your generation.
    Half you take a mordant pride in being diagnosed with something. It gives you a badge of distinction, does it not?

    If things keep going at this rate, the kids who have a grip on reality will be the ones who are ostracized as being abnormal.

    Or is that already happening?
