I honestly saw this as a way of George telling D&D to fuck themselves
I don’t mind clingy. In fact, I appreciate it more. When you constantly tell me you miss me, or get worried when I don’t respond quickly. Because it shows that you actually care about me, and if I truly like you, nothing you do will ever annoy me.
"and if I truly like you, nothing you do will ever annoy me."
As an annoying/annoyed person: hahahahahahaha!
Brain studies find that concern for justice and equality is linked to logic, not emotion.
By Lisa Wade, PhD
A new study finds that people with high “justice sensitivity” are using logic, not emotions. Subjects were put in a fMRI machine, one that measures ongoing brain activity and shown videos of people acting kindly or cruelly toward a homeless person.
Some respondents reacted more strongly than others — hence the high versus low justice sensitivity — and an analysis of the high sensitivity individuals’ brain activity showed that they were processing the images in the parts of the brain where logic and rationality live. “Individuals who are sensitive to justice and fairness do not seem to be emotionally driven,” explained one of the scientists, “Rather, they are cognitively driven.”
Activists aren’t angry, they reasonably object to unjust circumstances that they understand all too well.
Image borrowed from Jamie Keiles at Teenagerie, who is a high sensitivity individual.
I always considered myself logical, but lately I’ve been more and more frustrated with the lot in others’ lives (“social justice” aka sympathy). Silly, but it left me a bit conflicted about my personality. This slice of research offers a bit of peace of mind.
WHEN DO WE GET TO THE PLANET?? THE PLANET OF THE APES?!? I’M SO TIRED.
Cody’s been listening to a lot of “let’s play” streams lately, and it honestly makes me want to punch a dick. They say the dumbest shit. And why are all of their voices so grating?
