You're welcome. That is a cool avatar. Scary. When I was choosing an image "wrinkles the clown" Google Advanced Search, I narrowed it down to two. This one was too creepy.


THAT looks to be the furthest thing from inviting that I've ever seen.

What if the clown were replaced with Donald Trump and the word 'hugs' replaced with 'lapdances'?

Re: Unusual News of the Day

This most certainly fits into the bracket of unusual and disturbing, without being political.

But that article fails to include the response he gave when asked to explain that comment - 'I mean what woman wouldn't want breasts like mine?'.

Re: Unusual News of the Day

not out today but relatively recent
Psychosis and the Control of Lucid Dreaming. - PubMed - NCBI

quote "Dreaming and psychosis share important features, such as intrinsic sense perceptions independent of external stimulation, and a general lack of criticism that is associated with reduced frontal cerebral activity. Awareness of dreaming while a dream is happening defines lucid dreaming (LD), a state in which the prefrontal cortex is more active than during regular dreaming. For this reason, LD has been proposed to be potentially therapeutic for psychotic patients."

but unfortunately for the initial hypothesis "Psychotic lucid dreamers reported control of their dreams more frequently (67% of S and 73% of B) than non-psychotic lucid dreamers (only 23% of C; S > C with p = 0.0283, B > C with p = 0.0150)."

"these preliminary results support the notion that LD is associated with psychosis, but falsify the hypotheses that we set out to test"

"A possible explanation is that psychosis enhances the experience of internal reality in detriment of external reality, and therefore lucid dreamers with psychotic symptoms would be more able to control their internal reality than non-psychotic lucid dreamers. "

I would take it with a grain of salt, but thought some may be interested
