    Yes; especially excellent in self-destruction through diversity alien population given the green light into a socialist paradise that their demographic didn't create nor pay for. This suicidal altruism would never be thought of by them nor implemented. This White supremacy is validated / rubber stamped by the practice of leaving their third world culture for any legal or illegal opportunity to invade a Western Cultured country and remain. White men are anti-cultural cleansing / genocide except for their own people. Then it is " Celebrated " as superior " diversity " / die-versity !

    It's likely that homosexuality is primarily determined by the corpus callosum, the part of the brain linking the two hemispheres. Heterosexual men and lesbians tend to have a thinner corpus callosum than heterosexual women and gay men. Severing this part of the brain would probably cure homosexuality, but could lead to symptoms of autism, as well as making it harder to recover from a head injury.

    Anyway, gayness probably has much to do with the sexually dimorphic nucleus. Gay men have one more similar to women(and this is seen in "gay" nonhuman animals as well, IIRC).

    OT This is a long good reply from an anon at 4chan flying British colors, summing up both the “Russian chemical attack” situation and his reaction. Emphasis and minor editing added. Shutting down Russian media is very likely, they have wanted to do this since the election of Trump.

    No. Its clearly not the Russians because of how f***ing sloppy it was[,] and the sites and cause [motive] keep changing. Worth noting Britain[']s main chemical warfare centre is a few miles up the road from Salisbury and they finished Exercise: Toxic Dagger the week before it [the attack] happened.

    But my opinion can’t change anything, the front page news is condemning Russia and the social media has done the rest.

    Already talk of the response including:
    1. Closing the Russian embassy and expelling all diplomats
    2. Sanctions
    3. Boycotting world cup
    4. “Retaliatory measures”
    5. If state sanctioned, low level military response abroad i.e Syria.
    6. Freezing all assets of Russians in the UK linked to the Kremlin i.e men like Abramovich the owner of Chelsea FC who is close friends with Putin since he was the man that recommended Putin to take over from Yeltsin at the fall of the USSR.
    7. Shutting down RT in the UK
    8. Arresting members of the SVR(Russian Foreign Intelligence) in Britain.

    The PM has stated this is “An attack of military levels on British soil. it is illegal,brazen and a direct breach of our sovereignty”. More than 300 people have been affected by this nerve agent with 21 of them serious[,] and 2 in a coma with organ failure [(]who are the spy and his daughter[)]. The town is being decontaminated as we type.

    She is now calling all NATO leaders with Macron of France already saying they will commit to whatever action is necessary[,] and the NATO secretary general has said the situation is now at dangerous levels not seen for at least 40 years and is in close contact with the UK government and military over the situation.

    >Tom Tugendhat, the chair of the House of Commons Foreign Affairs Committee, says: “This, if not an act of war, was certainly a war-like act by the Russian Federation.”

    >mfw the only one preaching calm and time to investigate is Comrade Jeremy Corbyn[,] alleged to be a former USSR informant in the 1970′s-1980′s.

    Anomalous lateralization seems to me like it might be connected to in vitro malnutrition, or some sort of subtle environmental poisoning.

    It's also possible that when you have a person whose ancestors come from groups who are VERY unrelated to each other, the genes contain a higher percentage of detrimental genes that are not being canceled out when they blend in one person. Although people like to talk about hybrid vigor, people who come from populations with not too closely related inbreeding can also weed out virulent genes over time.

    Re the OP: it's not exactly shocking that temporarily disabling parts of the brain leads to changes in behavior. What's important about this sort of study is that it lends support to the idea that religion is primarily about in-groups vs. out-groups. The doctrines are ways to identify who's part of your tribe, since they're so complex and arbitrary that spoofing them is difficult.

    I was buying toys for relatives recently and I was appalled by some of the new board games (which is something I normally do not follow). I recognized variations on "Settlers of Catan," which was the first really successful "European style game" (strategy without violence), and which I'll be picking up when the relatives are old enough. But right across the aisle was something called "Poopyhead," and a different game involving recorded flatulence noises. I had a similar experience when looking for children's books: when new children's books are not obscene they are often alarmingly low in quality.
    I get that kids joke about this stuff -- in fact, my understanding is that they do so without any encouragement -- so what good parent is bringing home something like "Poopyhead"?
    https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/184922/poopyhead
    There was also a fair amount of sexual stuff, boardgames for adults along the lines of "truth or dare." That's not as bad but again it was right there in the toy section.

  25. Interesting. So it can affect personality and moral reasoning.

    The article mentioned affecting the part that deals with threats, so probably the neuroticism aspect of personality. The unknown always carries some potential for danger/pain, so immigrants exemplify this form of threat.

    I wonder how neuroticism correlates with the moral dimension of group loyalty, which also factors into immigration issues.

    Finally, given that SJWs n liberals (but I repeat myself) often espouse these arguments but never truly live it out, ensconced in their gated communities, is there a metric for hypocrisy or a personality profile for the same?

    I remember when I was studying Nuclear Magnetic Resonance back in the ‘60’s that it had already been established that very powerful multi-Gauss magnetic fields inhibit neural transmission. Tests at that time were much simpler and consisted of demonstrating that reflex times were measurably slowed. So what is possible is that the changes in beliefs are an effect of reducing peoples’ mental performance, thereby making them more susceptible to being in favor of immigration etc. In effect the magnetic fields effectively function like a gentle version of Jack D’s sledgehammer temporarily turning the subjects into Leftists.

    Mass Immigration Is Destroying Australia

    Reserve Bank of Australia chief Philip Lowe last year said population growth was flattering economic data. Indeed, digging beneath the past quarter century’s unbroken gross domestic product record reveals a somewhat bleaker picture: on a GDP per person basis, the growth in economic output was zero at the end of last year and the weakest since the third quarter of 2016.

     


    An accelerating population makes it less likely the nation will slip into a recession -- technically defined as two straight quarters of economic contraction -- said Gareth Aird, chief economist at Commonwealth Bank of Australia.

     


    “So if you’ve got strong population growth -- whether or not it’s driven by immigration -- then it’s harder to go backwards in an output sense. But if you look at the economy on a per capita basis, we’ve had a couple of recessions over that period.”

     

    Australia is a resource cartel. Some profit from the stuff dug out of the ground for Asian manufacturers. Young Australian Anglo-Celts and other European Christian Australians are being crushed by high housing costs which benefit some baby boomer Australians and others.

    The evil Australian ruling class is sacrificing young people's ability to enjoy AFFORDABLE FAMILY FORMATION. Retaliation squads will soon be busy legally making sure the evil ruling classes of Australia, England and the United States get the punishment they deserve for their evil deeds.

    Mass immigration increases housing costs, lowers wages, swamps schools, overwhelms hospitals, harms the environment, destroys cultural cohesion and increases income inequality.

    Mass immigration brings Islamic terrorism and multicultural mayhem.

    I tend to believe that gene expression, minor differences that cause some genes to express more and render different results, is an easily obtainable consequence of short(er) term evolutionary pressures. There can be the most minute differences in DNA, and the group that evolved to thrive in a primitive environment will carry the hereditary traits appropriate to that environment.

    I think a tendency to sociopathic behavior, as measured against western civilization, is one of those traits.

    It's likely that homosexuality is primarily determined by the corpus callosum, the part of the brain linking the two hemispheres. Heterosexual men and lesbians tend to have a thinner corpus callosum than heterosexual women and gay men. Severing this part of the brain would probably cure homosexuality, but could lead to symptoms of autism, as well as making it harder to recover from a head injury.

    Interesting. So it can affect personality and moral reasoning.

    The article mentioned affecting the part that deals with threats, so probably the neuroticism aspect of personality. The unknown always carries some potential for danger/pain, so immigrants exemplify this form of threat.

    I wonder how neuroticism correlates with the moral dimension of group loyalty, which also factors into immigration issues.

    Finally, given that SJWs n liberals (but I repeat myself) often espouse these arguments but never truly live it out, ensconced in their gated communities, is there a metric for hypocrisy or a personality profile for the same?

    I can't believe they allowed that show on a children's network.

    I was buying toys for relatives recently and I was appalled by some of the new board games (which is something I normally do not follow). I recognized variations on “Settlers of Catan,” which was the first really successful “European style game” (strategy without violence), and which I’ll be picking up when the relatives are old enough. But right across the aisle was something called “Poopyhead,” and a different game involving recorded flatulence noises. I had a similar experience when looking for children’s books: when new children’s books are not obscene they are often alarmingly low in quality.
    I get that kids joke about this stuff — in fact, my understanding is that they do so without any encouragement — so what good parent is bringing home something like “Poopyhead”?

    I'd be interested in how exactly the magnetic field effects the neurons. Does it inhibit their ability to fire? Electroshock therapy actually passed electrons through the brain globally -- or did it? -- which had more permanent effects. What's going on?

    I remember when I was studying Nuclear Magnetic Resonance back in the ‘60’s that it had already been established that very powerful multi-Gauss magnetic fields inhibit neural transmission. Tests at that time were much simpler and consisted of demonstrating that reflex times were measurably slowed. So what is possible is that the changes in beliefs are an effect of reducing peoples’ mental performance, thereby making them more susceptible to being in favor of immigration etc. In effect the magnetic fields effectively function like a gentle version of Jack D’s sledgehammer temporarily turning the subjects into Leftists.

    Is it ok? That's thought-provoking. Define "Ok". There are lots of ways to go on what's "Ok". I used to wonder about all the guys that got tattoos on the North-African coast back in the 70s when the ship port-called Alexandria, Egypt, Senegal, Tunisia and Israel several times over the course of Carter's gunboat diplomacy. HIV of course was already rampant in that part of the world, all that left was the spread and the advance to full-blown AIDS. How many guys with those stupid tatts took HIV and Hep home with them to share ? Were they unwitting agents of the spread of the epidemic? Or maybe intelligence services just wanted to see how the spread might progress? They certainly could keep track of us, we were rather captive on those tin cans.

    What's "ok"? Define it. Skin-deep, or sick minds? The disfigurements are products of minds that aren't, can't be, "Ok". Chicks with tatts, even the dopey angels and roses in places you don't see indicate an idiotic copier-chick, common, but annoying. With them, every trend must be sampled, even if defacing to the body. After the show LA Ink, women are pulling 80% of the tattoos. Piercing is another disgusting copy-cat adornment. In one breath they call out clitoridectomy, in the next, they run a spike through their own doings, even through their nipples. Multi-colored hair not of nature is yet ANOTHER annoying and disgusting practice, it's fucking gross, we all see it and know it. We know women that do that are damaged, sick, a little retarded. The deliberate fattening of Western women is another disgusting disfigurement. None of it is 'ok', it's just what they do. They're welcome to it, but no one is fooled. After women that are thin, women that don't pierce, tatt and blaze their hair are the more desirable by a damned sight. Why so many deface themselves is beyond me. They are self-dented, damaged cans. And the fat women are beyond redemption and are most assuredly, not 'ok', heh..

    If scientists were studying ways to make say modern American white women MORE religious and MORE willing to bear children would that be all sciencey and OK or would that be totally unethical? I would bet the latter. Do these folks have any sense of objectivity or is it all who- whom with them?

    But there is no hypocrisy here at all. They have their religion which tells them the truth. It tells them which things are right and wrong, which things are diseased and healthy, which things are broken and fixed. There is no symmetry between truth and error. There is no symmetry between a treatment intended to help someone and a treatment intended to hurt someone.

    Australian elites are clearly brain dead:

    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-03-12/the-secret-to-avoiding-recession-in-australia-mass-immigration

    Mass immigration has swelled the population by 50 percent in a mere three decades!

    Mass Immigration Is Destroying Australia

    Reserve Bank of Australia chief Philip Lowe last year said population growth was flattering economic data. Indeed, digging beneath the past quarter century’s unbroken gross domestic product record reveals a somewhat bleaker picture: on a GDP per person basis, the growth in economic output was zero at the end of last year and the weakest since the third quarter of 2016.

    An accelerating population makes it less likely the nation will slip into a recession — technically defined as two straight quarters of economic contraction — said Gareth Aird, chief economist at Commonwealth Bank of Australia.

    “So if you’ve got strong population growth — whether or not it’s driven by immigration — then it’s harder to go backwards in an output sense. But if you look at the economy on a per capita basis, we’ve had a couple of recessions over that period.”

    Australia is a resource cartel. Some profit from the stuff dug out of the ground for Asian manufacturers. Young Australian Anglo-Celts and other European Christian Australians are being crushed by high housing costs which benefit some baby boomer Australians and others.

    The evil Australian ruling class is sacrificing young people’s ability to enjoy AFFORDABLE FAMILY FORMATION. Retaliation squads will soon be busy legally making sure the evil ruling classes of Australia, England and the United States get the punishment they deserve for their evil deeds.

    Mass immigration increases housing costs, lowers wages, swamps schools, overwhelms hospitals, harms the environment, destroys cultural cohesion and increases income inequality.

    Mass immigration brings Islamic terrorism and multicultural mayhem.

    And none of them fit progressives. These were they guys who took away your liquor and, in extreme cases, your genitals.

    ...so what good parent is bringing home something like “Poopyhead”?
     
    There is a new book series called "The Power of Poop":

    I feel the same way about tattoos. They don’t cause damage, they are damage.

    When I see all those people who are covered in tattoos, I can't help wondering about long-term health risks. Is it really okay to put all that foreign matter under your skin?

    “When I see all those people who are covered in tattoos, I can’t help wondering about long-term health risks. Is it really okay to put all that foreign matter under your skin?”

    Is it ok? That’s thought-provoking. Define “Ok”. There are lots of ways to go on what’s “Ok”. I used to wonder about all the guys that got tattoos on the North-African coast back in the 70s when the ship port-called Alexandria, Egypt, Senegal, Tunisia and Israel several times over the course of Carter’s gunboat diplomacy. HIV of course was already rampant in that part of the world, all that left was the spread and the advance to full-blown AIDS. How many guys with those stupid tatts took HIV and Hep home with them to share ? Were they unwitting agents of the spread of the epidemic? Or maybe intelligence services just wanted to see how the spread might progress? They certainly could keep track of us, we were rather captive on those tin cans.

    What’s “ok”? Define it. Skin-deep, or sick minds? The disfigurements are products of minds that aren’t, can’t be, “Ok”. Chicks with tatts, even the dopey angels and roses in places you don’t see indicate an idiotic copier-chick, common, but annoying. With them, every trend must be sampled, even if defacing to the body. After the show LA Ink, women are pulling 80% of the tattoos. Piercing is another disgusting copy-cat adornment. In one breath they call out clitoridectomy, in the next, they run a spike through their own doings, even through their nipples. Multi-colored hair not of nature is yet ANOTHER annoying and disgusting practice, it’s fucking gross, we all see it and know it. We know women that do that are damaged, sick, a little retarded. The deliberate fattening of Western women is another disgusting disfigurement. None of it is ‘ok’, it’s just what they do. They’re welcome to it, but no one is fooled. After women that are thin, women that don’t pierce, tatt and blaze their hair are the more desirable by a damned sight. Why so many deface themselves is beyond me. They are self-dented, damaged cans. And the fat women are beyond redemption and are most assuredly, not ‘ok’, heh..

    Ok?

    My bad. I'm using the modern definition, not the historical one.

    You can try salvaging the word, but I've given up. At most, I'd say I'm a classic liberal. Which most know-nothings will assume to be one of them.
