I'll make a point of alerting everyone in the psychonaut community to never give out their addresses.

Lol. I doubt the peoploids I talk to could ever "get here from there" anyway. That would be like downgrading.

I guess I was right when I thought that the voyager golden record was a really FUCKING stupid idea.

Im on an APAP (same thing as a cpap, with wider range). difference is huge. now I can actually stay awake during the day. losing weight helps, if they are overweight.

sleep apnea sucks. I love my machine. it's a resmed apap, with humidifier and a resmed swift mask. My range is set to 12 - 20 or something like that. I recommend talking to others who have sleep apnea.

Im not even touching it, cause I smell a rickroll from a mile away.

Who says I escaped? I'm a double agent.

bullshit. Im a fourple agent and I havent seen you at any of the meetings.

We already have adequate laws to protect children and adults from this kind of abuse.


Not only that, due to the fact that there are many unscrupulous individuals out there who have the gall to split hairs over what's really abusive and what is not, the malplractice laws can absolutely pick up the slack. Those things together are more than sufficient, and it's already proven its efficacy in court.

Oh ffs... Anyone have any suggestions for managing Kinderagartners in an ESL setting? I wouldn't say I'm at "My Wits end" or anything, but I am a bit concerned with one of my class's behavior. I'm more tolerant than the Chinese teachers are with them and I'm willing to take the long view that all good things will come with time and patience from these little rascals, but the Chinese teachers are thinking along the lines of sowing terror into their ranks.

I've had to tell them to chill out a few times already.

So yeah, anyone have any clues for suggestions for a hyperactive kindergarten class in an ESL setting?

smear the queer! smear the queer!

A must-teach game!

wow... talk about latching on to the one thing that can be interpreted as PROGRAM THINKING.  Oh N0Z!

There are a lot worse things that can happen to a kid than rehab and 12 step. I've been on both sides of the sobriety train. Trust me. It's not the end of the fucking world. In fact, it doesn't come CLOSE to a program. If I had the chance to go to a rehab instead, I would have packed my OWN fucking bags. Life ain't perfect, and sometimes, you aren't always left with a simple solution.. or ANY solution. Once the world is a flowery utopia full of rainbows, perfect parents and gumdrop lounge chairs, I will personally shit a golden invitation out of my ass with your name on it and have it delivered to you by unicorn.

I forgot that most of the things on fornits is absolute and either/or. Statements that have even the least potential for butthurt are completely divorced from whatever its context, and reality in general. Perspective means nothing, and if someone disagrees, they are obviously an idiot.

lol. k. have fun with your bad self. Be sure to keep an eye on that hemorrhoid problem.

It's great to see that it's finally Elan's turn to flood the boards with tiresome, vapid, chest-beating. You guys were relegated to your own little hovel of a sub-forum for so long, it must feel nice to finally get some daylight and strut your stuff. After all, everyone is entitled to a big fat bite of the invisible sandwich that is internet attention.

Great Job!

I don't believe (irregardless) is a word.

lol. It is. It means the exact same thing as "regardless". It's a combination of the words "regardless" and "irrespective". Kind of the same way that "empathetic" is a combination of "empathic" and"sympathetic."

Both of these are recent words, both informal, and both, IMO, are totally retarded. (I refuse to acknowledge the existence of either.) However, I *do* recognize the term "whimsicle fuckery", as started by April Winchell as recently as Several Months Ago.

Alternately, the order of "flammable" vs. "inflammable" is reversed, as "inflammable" was the original term (latin), then some 19th century fuck coined "flammable" (french) and Fucked Everything Up.

Aspergers, like autism, is real.

The problem with aspergers is not only who is diagnosed, but when. As far as the psychiatric community as a whole is concerned, (at least from what  I've read) an adult diagnosis of aspergers is impossible. By that time, it's impossible to distinguish if they are suffering from a biological condition, or they were simply "raised by wolves." I agree with this opinion.

In addition, there are those adults who feel that an aspergers diagnosis gives them carte blanche to act like an asshole. It also contributes to this understanding of "specialness", which really helps no-one, independent of any sort of medical evaluation.

My brother-in-law has aspergers. He was diagnosed at around 17 which is still kind of late, IMO. I'm no expert, but there is definitely something different about him that social upbringing can't account for. (Especially since I know his parents) I also know of some of the stuff he did as a kid, and it certainly seems to be consistent with aspergers. There's that arrogant part of me which wants to say "Trust me, the dude has aspergers.", cause seriously, he does.

I certainly noticed some similarities between my bro-in-law and my nephew, who is autistic. Different, but same. I know they call it a spectrum disorder, as in: there are degrees of severity, but I felt there was something intrinsically different. i.e. If I pushed aspergers to its extreme, it would not end up as autism. So I honestly dont know what the story is currently about how the two relate to each other. I think at one point it was viewed similar to a spectrum relationship/degrees of severity, but I think there are some schools of thought who now say that it's not. It's part of the same "family", but they don't populate the same axis.

I can't speak to that, however, but I tend to agree with the family instead of axis theory.

I don't think it is something that necessarily needs to be treated, either.

There is no treatment for aspergers syndrome, nor is there with autism. It's like saying there is a treatment for dwarfism. It's a condition, not a disease. There is special education which can assist with cognitive as well as social skills, as well therapy, both emotional and physical. (Then there are also those nightmare places like the Rotenberg center) But there's no *treatment* to help them *not* have aspergers, and there is actually a pretty vocal part of the autistic community who have a serious problem with the attitude that the condition is something to "cure".

chuck's all grown up now. no pic for wolf. Didn't even get a "watch this space" placeholder like the Henney's did. Also seems to be a few cops.

it doesnt upset me.

this shit happens all the time. they all have careers in this field, so of course those are the kinds of jobs they are going to get. I know that it's easy to see it as the "spread of evil", but it's also easy to give yourself a bleeding ulcer over total pointless bullshittery.

May I recommend becoming jaded?   :cheers:

I will re-post what I said in the deleted thread.

Obvious troll is obvious.

While we're at it, let's compare programs to sleepaway camps, too, since the only common denominator among any of these is that the kid is away from home.

I present, my personal favorite episode...

Michael Ellis

I believe that's the whole thing, in its entirety, as opposed to not.

(I haven't watched this particular upload yet.)

Doesn't matter. Watch the bastard anyway.

Feel free to share your favorite episodes in this thread, or outside, in some other location.
