Oh MY God (No pun intended) We're Ignorant! [26 May 2007|03:52pm]
From an AFP article:

"Polls consistently show that nearly half of Americans believe God created humans in their present form less than 10,000 years ago. Only about 13 percent believe God played no part in the origin of human life."



HOLY SHIT!

Physical Anthropology needs to be a requirement to graduate high school obviously

People suck, the news sucks, etc...

why should the family of the gunman from viriginia tech appollogize? they don't control his actions? And why is being made out to be an evil person and not a sick person? Can someone enlighten me?

And I also don't see why everybody is freaking out that NBC or ABC (whoever ti was) aired the tapes that the gunman sent them. It seems anything that would help explain why this happened would be good for the public to see (no matter how graphic or disturbing) so that we know the warning signs for the future.

People confuse me

2C-B



Description
2C-B is a synthetic psychedelic that first gained popularity as a legal Ecstasy replacement in the mid 1980s. It is generally considered to be somewhat 'gentler' than LSD or mushrooms, being less prone to catalyzing dissociated freak-outs or overwhelming panic attacks at normal recreational doses. 2C-B is also known for the strong body component of its effects which are alternately described as pleasurable energy or a 'sense of being in the body', and by others as an unpleasant 'buzzing' or body-load.

2C-B is still sometimes sold as "ecstasy", although this is rare because it is actively sought by many users for its unique effects. 2C-B is sometimes chosen for use in psychedelic psychotherapy because its short duration and less 'pushy' character.

Dose
A standard oral dose of 2C-B is between 10 and 40 mg. It is most frequently found in either powder or (small) pill form. Pills have commonly contained 5 mg, though this varies. 2C-B is also sometimes snorted for a shorter experience with quicker onset. Snorted doses are about 1/3 that of an oral dose and are legendarily painful. Underground market 2C-B has historically been of high quality because it has generally been sold to a relatively exclusive market of knowledgeable buyers.

Price
2C-B is often sold at ecstasy prices at clubs & parties, from 10-30$ per 'dose' (usually 15-25mg). Purchased in large quantities it sells for 200-500$ per gram at retail levels or 100-300$ per gram at wholesale prices. (August 2000)

Law
2C-B is illegal to possess and sell in the United States (schedule I) and in most other countries. 2C-B was scheduled in the U.S. in 1993 and in most other countries between 1994 and 1998.

Chemistry
4-Bromo-2,5-dimethoxyphenethylamine (2C-B) is a synthetic chemical in the phenethylamine class. It is related structurally to mescaline, DOB, and distantly to MDMA.

History
2C-B was first synthesized by Alexander Shulgin in 1974 while exploring homologues of DOB. Its psychoactivity was first discovered on June 25, 1975 by Dr. Shulgin who described it as "beautifully active". 2C-B was marketed in the late 1980s as an MDMA replacement after Ecstasy was scheduled in 1985. It was added to schedule I in the U.S. in 1994 and by 1999, it was illegal in most of the world.

Slang
The Substance: 2C-B, Nexus, Bees
The Experience: Tripping, To See Bees

Onset
Depending on how much and how recently one has eaten, oral 2C-B generally takes 45-75 minutes to take effect. On a full stomach, onset can be considerably slower.

Duration
The primary effects of 2C-B last approximately 4-6 hours when taken orally. For many people there is an additional period of time (2-4 hrs) where it is difficult to go sleep but where mood and mind-set are mostly back to baseline. The day-after effects of 2C-B are relatively mild, with most users reporting little to no lingering negative effects.

The Experience
In the beginning stages of onset, 2C-B is likely to cause a sort of indefinable feeling similar to anticipation or anxiety. There may be a feeling of energy in the body, and the sense that things are different than usual. As the effects intensify, a wide variety of perceptual changes may occur; pupil dilation, visual patterning and movement, mental stimulation, new perspectives, feelings of insight, emotional shifts (mood lift or introspection), anxiety and confusion. Many people find that the effects of 2C-B are more subtle or manageable than those of other psychedelics, allowing the user to more easily approach baseline thinking during the experience. Unlike some other psychoactives, many people find themselves able to eat shortly after peak effects subside. Closed-eye visuals are quite common with 2C-B. Open-eye visual patterning, color-shifts, and wavering or moving vision are common for many people and are more likely at higher doses.

Scientists discovered that even though Sea Urchins are blind and can't smell, they have the same genes that allow humans to see and smell. They also have many similarities to humans when it comes to their immune system.

I wonder how creationists would explain why god would give a creature un-usable genes?

So, now that the Democrats control the house (and possibly the Senate)... do you think there will be any substantial changes? If so, what specifically do you think will change?

And with Rumsfeld resigning.... same question.

I'm feeling pessimistic about the whole situation (I think history gives me good reason to be). There seems to be quite a bit of continuity between the republican and democratic parties...

George Bush has just vetoed a bill, approved by both Houses of Congress, which would have allowed federal funding for embryonic stem cell research. Apparently the President’s ethical philosophy places a higher value on American embryos than on Iraqi or Lebanese men, women and children. Don’t misunderstand ‘embryos’, by the way. We are not talking miniature babies here. The ‘embryos’ used for stem cell research are no bigger than a pinhead, and completely lacking in sentience of any kind.The illogical and hypocritical inconsistency between Bush’s stance on embryonic stem cell research on the one hand, and on slaughtered and maimed Iraqis and Lebanese on the other, is the subject of this article. It is an inconsistency that you could find only in a mind massively infected with the disease of religion.

If you ask me whether I care more about the destruction of a blastocyst, which theoretically has the potential to develop into a conscious human being, or the painful killing of an adult cow in an abattoir which has already reached its full potential, my answer is not in doubt. If I see a terrified cow about to have its throat cut by a Jewish or Muslim slaughterman who insists, purely for religious reasons, that it must be fully conscious when the knife hits, I want to intervene on its behalf. If I see a human blastocyst the size of a pinhead about to be flushed down the drain, do I want to intervene on its behalf? Oh come on, get real.

Can you support the troops and not the war? If you're supporting the troops, then aren't you supporting the mission they are on? If you're helping them to be more effective by supporting them, you are making the mission more succesful; and, whether you like it or not, you are supporting the mission (war).

Am I wrong?

from dictionary.com:

sup‧port [suh-pawrt, -pohrt]

[...]

4. to sustain (a person, the mind, spirits, courage, etc.) under trial or affliction: They supported him throughout his ordeal.
5. to maintain (a person, family, establishment, institution, etc.) by supplying with things necessary to existence; provide for: to support a family.
6. to uphold (a person, cause, policy, etc.) by aid, countenance, one's vote, etc.; back; second.

"Were [sic] sure you've all heard about how potent Panaeolus Cyanescens, Panaeolus Cambodgeniensis and Panaeolus Tropicalus are. well, straight up, they are very potent and deliver an extremely beautiful vibe beyond description. So peacefull and colorfull, very potent yet about the "smoothest" mushroom experience out there in many Amsterdam growers opinions. Its hard to put it into words, you just have to experience them, and you will know. Pure bliss!"

You should be on look-out for these.....

word on the street is they will be coming to a city near you....

They are 3 times as potent as the shrooms you're used to.

We found our cat! It lived (somehow) after being locked in a neighbors camper for 3 weeks without food or water!! He is deathly skinny but is getting back to normal. I can't believe he lived!

In other news... there's soon to be a fungus amungus.
