This is an old ass thread, but I once got caught shoplifting a $9 hackey sack. I got handcuffed and sent to jail with a $300 bail.

My girlfriend was prescribed it for something they think might be fibromyalgia. Anyway, she said she isn't going to be taking it because it "wasn't doing anything," so she had like 350 300mg pills...

Yeah, I've taken an intro to research psych course. I have a degree in psychology. And I've worked in the mental health field for like 5 years. I'm well aware of self-fulfilling prophecies. I don't...

I was commenting on their behaviors, not on how I treated them. To the best of my ability, I treated every patient with dignity, respect, and professionalism. But it's a fact that a large percentage...

I worked at a psychiatric hospital for children and adolescents for a little over a year. It was an incredible learning experience, but it was also horrible in so many ways. You see these kids who...

God damn, I haven't smoked in like a year. I literally have no connections anymore. I've been doing some gabapentin lately, but it's not the same. I'm considering just going up to strangers and...

Well it's worth pointing out that, in reference to the link posted a few posts above, that the American Academy of Pediatrics claims that the benefits of circumcision outweigh the small risks...

Eh, children's autonomy is so severely limited in so many respects that I don't find that to be a particularly convincing principle to follow, even here. As for adolescents in the 14 - 17 age range,...

According the the Wikipedia page (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Circumcision), studies by the CDC and John Hopkins University conclude that male circumcision is cost-effective because it reduces the...

It is amazing. Kahneman should be required reading for any psychology or economics major--economics especially.

I haven't read that other one, though. It might be worth checking out.

Mostly this.

But it also sounds like your friend needs to learn that some things aren't a big deal, and this is one of them. Although telling her that probably won't help the situation.

Understandable. I also had similar sentiments to your own not long ago, but I would urge you to reconsider. It's almost 40 years old, but Animal Liberation...

Many people still think that morality is dictated by, or can only be followed properly in reference to, God. And because people generally don't care for people who they see as different than...

Link (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/religion/9816803/Religion-does-not-make-you-love-your-neighbour-study.html). I searched for the actual study, but I couldn't find it. I don't think it's been...

All of that is true. However, I would also add that most people never bother to seek out arguments that fundamentally question their dietary choices. Everyone else--whether they are presented with...
