-Spoilers for the latest GOT episode-

The only people mourning Joffrey are the WRP, cause he can't find them no more.

Also someone took the dead face close up and out I hit the blunt to hard.

Does it still count as a spoiler if I don't understand what you're talking about?

It's a joke about Sadam funding the Worker's Revolutionary Party.

I was wondering too, and I've read the books and know who did it. But I think there might be a clue in

Yeah, read it last week. It is completely bizarre and why it has been their front page for so long without a moment of clarity that would see it being removed. I was going to ask here as there are a few members of icc and ict, but didnt want to add fuel to the worlds smallest fire.

"We're dealing with fiery darts aaaaaaalllllllllllllllllllllllllll day long...and the devil is trying to find an opening where he can get a fiery dart through."

There's some serious sexual repression coming through in that vid, Ent.

Karl Teschitz (Karl Motesiczky), a Reichian analyst did some field research among protestant fundamentalist in Scandinavia during the 30ies, he stated basically that their bodily states when "speaking in tongues", etc. was quite similar to his experiences when having an orgasm

The God Experiments

Quote:
Intriguingly, Newberg has found some overlap between the neural activity of self-transcendence and of sexual pleasure. This result makes sense, Newberg says. Just as orgasms are triggered by a rhythmic activity, so religious experiences can be induced by dancing, chanting, or repeating a mantra. And both orgasms and religious experiences produce sensations of bliss, self-transcendence, and unity; that may be why mystics such as Saint Teresa so often employed romantic and even sexual language to describe their raptures.

The overlap between rapture and orgasm isn't total. The hypothalamus, which regulates both arousal and quiescence, seems to play a larger role in orgasms, while the brain's frontal lobes, the seat of higher cognitive functions, are apparently more active during spiritual practices. Nevertheless, Newberg concludes, an "evolutionary perspective suggests that the neurobiology of mystical experience arose, at least in part, from the mechanism of the sexual response."

Newberg's research can be questioned on several counts, however. One might ask what his brain scans are really measuring, since his subjects must remain self-aware enough to pull a string when they reach what is allegedly their deepest state of spirituality. Also, the SPECT method provides only a snapshot of the brain at a single moment. Studies of meditation carried out with other techniques, such as magnetic resonance imaging and electroencephalography, have revealed different patterns of neural activity—not surprisingly, since meditation is a complex behavior that evokes many different psychological states.

(while interesting, in fairness Choccy's excellent article on "Neuromania" seems very relevant here.)
