"There is a fundamental concern that the content of such magazines normalises the treatment of women as sexual objects. We are not killjoys or prudes who think that there should be no sexual information and media for young people. But are teenage boys and young men best prepared for fulfilling love and sex when they normalise views about women that are disturbingly close to those mirrored in the language of sexual offenders?" -Dr. Peter Hegarty

I know there are actors out there that present themselves as cool cats, but you better take your cool-cat suit off if you want to act. You can’t otherwise.

The Vegas

parislemon:

I can never decide if I absolutely love Las Vegas or if I absolutely hate it. I believe it’s a little bit of both. It’s undoubtedly one of the most divisive cities in the world, but it’s also the most divisive in my own head.

I first came to Vegas shortly after turning 21. I stayed for a week. Rookie mistake. Everyone who has ever been to Vegas knows that three days is the maximum you can stay in the city without going absolutely insane.

So this weekend I find myself in Las Vegas again. For three days.

How the Cavefish Lost Its Eyes
"Pictured above is a very peculiar fish that lives in a few North American caves. It looks very much like other fish, except in one respect: it has no eyes. The story of its adaptation to life in pitch blackness is one of the weirdest stories in evolutionary history."

Eysenck is especially well-known for his classification of personality-types. He divided people into four broad types: Extrovert-Stable, Extrovert-Unstable, Introvert-Stable and Introvert-Unstable. These types are fairly self-apparent in our daily lives, so no surprises there. However, he found that certain types are drawn to particular subjects of study, works of art and political affiliations in markedly predictable ways - and that is where things become really interesting.
Extrovert-Unstable  people are, according to Eysenck, more prone to insanity, extremism and authoritarianism than other personality types. Again, this is pretty much what we would expect. However, Eysenck soon found that his intellectual opponents in British universities were typically sociology students, many of whom resorted to threats of violence against him. Further research confirmed his hunch that students drawn to sociology were overwhelmingly Unstable-Extroverts, very seldom Stable-Introverts.

Traveling and meeting new people, and the stories and adventures that I encounter. I love to live and experience everything I can.
