Not as fascinating as Nishin's post, but it is not [entirely] my fault what I have learnt before or after... I think

that if someone who's on zoloft doesn't take it the same time they took it 24 hours before, they will start to feel weird as fuck. for about three hours, i felt my consciousness literally get fucked up. it was as if my brain was nodding off where i was all startled but i myself was fully alive and awake. i can feel like my whole entire insides jumping. i haven't felt that way since my sophomore year of high school. it was like an everyday occurrence back then. i was getting a bit scared that i might collapse or pass out or something. i don't know what the fuck that was about. about to google it to find out that this isn't a neurological problem or something.
just googled it and they said that it's brain zaps. this happens to me now and then but it was fucking happening to me repeatedly today.

one thing about the closet/you don't have to hurry/it will be bad tomorrow/so brother, don't you worry
I am so ignorant.
Are these things floating around in our blood?
An author, Carlos Ruiz Zafón, who I've never heard of before was on the radio today.
He said Barcelona is a city which has never been destroyed by conquerors. He says Madrid is masculine whereas Barcelona is feminine.
He said his Barcelona school was a factory which didn’t welcome any child who was in any way different.
The future of healthcare in the US looks increasingly religiously owned, no, pwned.
The Catholic Church has financial muscle in buying up financially struggling facilities, and when they become the owners, they are making their employees sign contracts that acknowledges that the healthcare the medical employee delivers must conform to the doctrines of the Catholic church. This is quite insidious, as the patient now must be party to healthcare delivered through religious tenants that the healthcare employee or patient believes in.
What's new you may say - you're free to visit establishments which don't fuddle their employee contracts with religious nonsense. What's new is that if it continues the majority of healthcare providers in the US will be under the ownership and run by religious organisations.
But I am not telling you anything that you couldn't infer yourself from what you quoted and for his reason to be on the radio in the bubble-cheek ass of the world at all.
BTW, all schools and self-styled "educational" institutions are chain factories: I love it when some authoritative shooting intello announces his partial discovery of the wheel, according to his own authoritative experience.
yes, you're right. I have almost blotted out all memory of my hapless assembling factory.
We're far too quick to pronounce anathema, against anything we don't like, anything which is not in accordance to what we think, etc. Signs of intolerance far trump signs of tolerance in the media these days, it's sad.
I have learnt that people from Spain are just as tedious as people from everywhere else.
Yeah, so join the rest of us or fuck off. It's your choice.
2.- Your claim to my belonging to a group is based on your personal perception, so you may well be wrong
3.- Since you likewise claim being gay, I remind you that you can go fuck off yourself... by choice

Coming to JUB is like gay marriage; there's conflict and compromising, good times and bad times, misunderstandings and misperceptions, etc, etc, ad nauseum.
We make a choice to enter here and we bear the consequences of our decisions
I only knew him for his Anthologie... , and he did not seem a particularly discerning, gifted critic...
... for example, when he mocks at Oppian of Anazarbus for the EXACT SAME reasons that you can mock Virgil, and with the EXACT SAME redeeming reasons to appreciate the former's Halieutica in Greek as you can do with the Georgics in Latin... or when he speaks of the sporty "brutes" in Pindar's odes, while omitting any reference to the bloodthirsty brutes in the Iliad when extolling and licking up the verses of Homer.

^ author's homosexuality, noting, inter alia, that he had slept with the enemy and approved of Germany's "penetration" of France.
he may have had issues, but de Gaulle was a monster, no?
De Gaulle a monster ? By what definition and acts ?
That so-called master teachers need to learn their own lesson plans.
"There’s death on the horizon,
and I’ll run to behold your sacrifice..."
military man soldier, after all which almost made of him a "critic", and "intellectual" like Brasillach himself
If I held the term "intellectual" as a positive term, I would deem outrageous to call an intellectual mess like Brasillach an intéllo, but since an intellectual is, by definition, a mental mess, I have no problem with that.
That with which I have a problem is the intellectual mess chaining up with the Brasillach sort, that is, to mistake the danger of people being "moderate" haters, for example for the Jews, or very thoroughly hating towards others, like the left, all of whihc is very dangerous indeed, but finding no better solution to that than having them eliminated: and I am not talking, of course, of the common "humane", moral reasons, but the purely pragmatical and rational ones which, when truly so, end up being the truly humane: if your only way to stop hate and fanatism and intellectual mess is to kill, you are doing it wrong, and all the more as a statesman.

He who has never envied the vegetable has missed the human drama. --Emil Cioran
My college teachers told me he was tyrant to the freedom fighters of May '68—
—and that he was continually re-elected into power by oldies who were sentimental about the war years, unenthused by the alternatives and Mieux le diable vous savez au lieu de le diable vous ne savez pas.
(I guess now I realise my college teachers were undisclosed Marxists instilling their propaganda into my unquestioning, innocent teenage mind. I don't know)
Supposedly it represents two bronze mules being transformed by their noble Imperial service into a bronze horse and bronze dog.

And I followed the links to learn of Cecelia Gimenez. NO connection to Texas author Mark Gimenez, who wrote The Color of Law, a terrific book about a Dallas lawyer.
You're a superhero if you can chug one.. I tell you.History 
It is claimed to have originated in the Mataram Kingdom some 1300 years ago. Though heavily influenced by Ayurveda from India, Indonesia is a vast archipelago with numerous indigenous plants not found in India, and include plants similar to Australia beyond the Wallace Line. Jamu may vary from region to region, and often not written down, especially in remote areas of the country.
Jamu was (and is) practiced by indigenous physicians (dukuns). However, it is generally prepared and prescribed by women, who sell it on the streets. Generally, the different jamu prescriptions are not written down but handed down between the generations. Some early handbooks, however, have survived. A jamu handbook that was used in households throughout the Indies was published in 1911 by Mrs. Kloppenburg-Versteegh.
One of the first European physicians to study jamu was Jacobus Bontius (Jacob de Bondt), who was a physician in Batavia (today's Jakarta) in the early seventeenth century. His writings contain information about indigenous medicine. A comprehensive book on indigenous herbal medicine in the Indies was published by Rumphius, who worked on Ambon during the early eighteenth century. He published a book called Herbaria Amboinesis (The Ambonese Spice Book). During the nineteenth century, European physicians had a keen interest in jamu, as they often did not know how to treat the diseases they encountered in their patients in the Indies. The German physician Carl Waitz published on jamu in 1829. In the 1880s and 1890s, A.G. Vorderman published extensive accounts on jamu as well. Pharmacological research on herbal medicine was undertaken by M. Greshoff and W.G. Boorsma at the pharmacological laboratory at the Bogor Botanical Garden
There are a few non-health related uses for jamu, which give it a bad reputation, among others, those which are used to enhance sexual pleasure rather than specifically cure illness. There are kinds of Jamu to increase sexual stamina for men, tighten the vagina for women (with names like Sari Rapat (“Essence of Tightness”), Rapat Wangi (“Tight and Fragrant”), and even Empot Ayam (“Tight as a Chicken’s Anus”). Of course in a Muslim country these products are considered by some to be sinful, though many women consume it for such reasons to ward off promiscuity.
At any case, if you really are that "special", you are supposed to let it come through after all... once you have received due standarizing instruction in the assembling institution.
Unfortunately the taxpayers in my country are forced to keep misbehaving donkeys in "schools" from age 5 to age 18.
Half the shoolkids and half the teachers hate each other. It is a demeaning thankless job to be a teacher nowdays so only females and substandard males are taking on the job— which all makes the situation worse.
