    Dude, I can empathize with this. Teenage kids walk through the neighborhood and piss just about wherever they feel like it, and a few years back, a van stopped in the road, and a woman climbed out to shit in the street. Passengers in the van and all.

    Oh we had something like that. Years back (when Kings Cross had a big prostitution thing...about 8 years ago) on the way to work (about 8am) one of the engineers here saw a lady of the night shitting in the middle of the street...a main road, with busy traffic and all, and she offered her "services" to him as she did it. I think that scared him for life lol

    A man and a woman in their 20s with a toddler walk into frame, the couple yelling at each other. Not angrily, this is just how they talk.
    The man walks over to the front of my building, directly in front of the camera, oblivious, and starts pissing on my door. His son is watching, and his adult companion is yelling "COME ON". He looks up directly into the camera, and starts walking into his own stream of piss towards a little plot of grass that's not, you know, directly in front of the camera.

    As soon as he's done, like, immediately, he turns around, whips out his camera and his girlfriend starts posing. The kid walks from behind him, over the stream of piss that's emptied into the street, and tries to get in the picture, but the woman yells at him.

    The man yells something about how he's a man he can do what he wants (in relation to pissing), in response to a question no one asked. He then takes a dick pic with the same camera.

    She yells to their friends coming up the street that he just pissed all over the sidewalk.

    Friends, it's so trashy I'm embarrassed to share that anywhere else on the internet but here at home, my ETS.

    It rained about 15 minutes later, thank baby jesus.
    Aw piss, I just spent two days in Philly. Totally forgot you live there.

    Anyway, did you send this to CPS or anything? Seems like pretty unfit parents if they're drunk to the point of pissing on houses and walking their toddler around in the middle of the night.

    People and charities and private companies haven’t forgotten about or given up on Flint. The problem is that the Federal and State governments have done NOTHING to FIX the problem that THEY created, and donations isn’t making them fix it. People in Flint STILL can’t take a fucking shower, and millions in donations is going toward BOTTLED drinking water because the state of Michigan stopped providing that last year.

    https://www.bridgemi.com/michigan-en...ds-not-so-much

    So caring about 800 years of history isn’t mutually exclusive from caring about a bunch of ASSHOLES in government who let people die and blamed others; in Flint or Puerto Rico or Yemen. We can do all of it at the same time.

    If you’re selling something online and you just put “Nine Inch Nails” (for example) in the listing and it has nothing to do with your item in any way, fuck you.

    Check out this charming antivax billboard in Amarillo. https://www.reddit.com/r/antivax/com...en_i_saw_this/

    I actually first became aware of this insanity when I saw this OTHER shit: check it out. It's fairly disturbing, and says AMYGDALA DRUGS CAUSE MASS SHOOTINGS, with pictures of mass shooters.


    I noticed a name on the billboards: DrFitt. I did a little research, and this guy is a bit of a local lunatic. He lost his medical license for "treating" a cancer patient by injecting her blood into a cow's udder, and having the woman drink the milk. He also tried to get on a plane in Amarillo, with a glock, and was convicted of threatening, on Facebook, to kill a professor

    https://www.amarillo.com/news/2017-0...oristic-threat

    Also, what in the fuck are "amygdala drugs?"

    Anyway, this dude's website still appears to be up, and I think he must still be hustling "holistic supplements" or some shit around here.

    that "mass shooting" billboard shocked the shit out of me.

    Nonsense. Essentially, it could boil down to any drug you've had a positive experience with. Sugar, for example. The one study that I keep finding mentions a trial with cocaine and rats. This DrFittt guys seems to be correlating side effects from anti-depressants to "cravings" or drug addiction, which is regulated by the amygdala and a weakening or bypassing of the prefrontal cortex.

    https://neurosciencenews.com/addicti...striatum-3739/

    A decade ago, both Belin and Everitt, independently, were the first to show that addiction manifests itself differently in different individuals and that, for some, compulsive cocaine-seeking behaviour would continue despite adverse circumstances. In a rat model, around 20% of animals addicted to cocaine still sought the drug despite the risk of receiving mild electric shocks on doing so.

    “This was the first time in the field of addiction that the idea of inter-individual differences in vulnerability to compulsive drug seeking was raised,” explains Belin, who is funded by the Wellcome Trust. “With regard to psychiatric disorders, we are not equally vulnerable.”

    Drug addiction had largely been regarded as the end point of a progressive loss of control over drug seeking resulting from a failure of part of the brain – the prefrontal cortex – that deals with decision making.

    “Certainly, chronic exposure to drugs alters the prefrontal cortex, which governs motivation, inhibitory control and choice. But it also alters an area of the brain called the basolateral amygdala, which is associated with the link between a stimulus and an emotion,” explains Belin.

    To explain further he gives the example of choosing to eat a cake or an apple. “The basolateral amygdala stores the pleasurable memories associated with eating the cake, but the prefrontal cortex manipulates this information, helping you to weigh up whether or not you should eat another slice or choose the apple instead. If you eat the slice, regions of the ventral striatum, the structure that processes reward and links emotions to actions, are activated.”

    However, Belin and Everitt’s latest research has shown that this is not the only neuronal circuit that underlies cocaine-seeking behaviour.

    Using their rat model, they identified a completely new highway that links impulses with habits. This brain circuit links the basolateral amygdala indirectly with the dorsolateral striatum, which is the neural locus of habits.

    “Because it doesn’t recruit the prefrontal cortex it doesn’t involve choice,” explains Belin. “It’s a short cut or back door directly to habit. It means that addicts can have internal urges they are not aware of that drive drug seeking. It’s a newly recognised function of this brain circuitry.

    “It would explain situations in which individuals who have been abstinent for five years suddenly relapse, telling their counsellor ‘I was walking in the street and I found myself with a glass of wine – and I promise you I didn’t want it.’ This has often been dismissed as ‘weakness of the will’ and then denial. This may also happen, but what our results in rats suggest is that there are occasions in which the stimuli go via motivation straight to the habit part of the brain without an individual even being aware of it.”

    That is a common tactic to say that many of the mass shooters were taking or had previously been on psychotropic medications as a way to re-frame the discussion about gun control to one of mental health and/or mental health medications.

    But it looks like this guy is just on some "drink this tea to cure your depression" type of shit and does not believe in medicine.

    That bloody commercial:

    I have nothing against the dish soap in question, in fact it's the one I buy. Specifically, my problem are my ears. Instead of properly hearing the name of the soap brand, I keep hearing "Donald Trump".

    "Save money with Donald Trump"

    If I were a conspiracy theorist, I'd say it's a freaking subliminal message.

    that anti-vaccine billboard pisses me off, but freedom of speech I guess.... and on that note, the biggest villain here is the company that agreed to put that fucking billboard up. Their greedy choice.

    So... FUCK Burkett billboards in Amarillo.

    My fucking shark of a landlord who I know has google rating of 1.8 for both her businesses below me for being a money grubbing rude old lady, who btw says she's a proper Christian leaves a note about the upcoming inspection yesterday. In said note she mentions that because it's still been cold I'll have to pay for heat again this month. Now when I moved in it was explained to me that during the MN deep freeze rent goes up 100$ (700 total for a small one bedroom) for heat as it was said to be included. I was okay with this understanding. Coming into fucking June and she still wants me to pay it is madness. Not once in my life have I ever ghosted on a place before but I'm over this bitch fleecing me for money.

    First it was my last job honeydicking me now this. I own my choices but fuck. I'm looking into a job even deeper into the backwoods with a possible free room at the same wage. If that doesn't pan out I'm gonna dip out of this town and big city rent/expenses and welfare wages. This bitch has 34 reviews all bad. I knew she was a hustler I had no idea she was a money succubus. People got me consistently fucked up anymore.

    What part of MN are you in? I'm in Minneapolis and it's in the low 70s today. No way should you be getting charged winter heating rates. Who the fuck is running their heat right now? That's just blatant extortion.

    Brainerd. This place is wack. I haven't had my heat on all month. Her building is old as shit and leaks heat from the rooftop. Had a giant icicle this winter. She basically wants me to pay for her shops heat. She's a total savage. One guy up there was trying to move out and ahe told the new guy he owed her money. Which he doesn't. Of all of us there he has his shit together the most. She just doesn't want him to move out.

    Doesn't necessarily piss me ff, but something that I just find so weird is this country's immediate assumption that everyone who goes to the military does so because they are a PATRIOT, and not because they dangle free college in front of poor kids.

    Sleep deprivation finally beat out jet lag and allowed me to sleep for 12 damn hours last night...except I spent what I'm pretty sure was the ENTIRE thing dreaming that we were at war with Russia. And not the type of war we're currently at with them; I mean an active bombing campaign between our two countries.

    Then I wake up and see this bullshit about Mitch McConnell saying exactly what anyone with a shred of intelligence would have expected him to say, and it actually makes me feel worse than the dream did.

    Or - particularly in my case - a way out of a place with zero prospects. I see the people who didn't leave on Facebook and it's pretty much 95% of them are still there, just eeking out an existence. I mean I'm not ballin' out here but I'm also not stuck in a place that is rapidly being decimated by meth and oxy overuse.

    I may have mentioned this last year, but I'm still pissed off, and, disturbed, that the cops killed a black kid in my little town last year, and pretty much managed to TOTALLY cover it up. No one would say SHIT. Kid was from out of town, and the car was stolen, but we still have no idea why they shot him. The passenger survived, and I remember seeing him on local news talking about how he didn't understand why they had to SHOOT his brother.
    I knew EXACTLY which cop did the killing, too, when I heard about it. I'm friendly with most of the cops here, but there's this ONE asshole cop who seems like he's just itching to shoot somebody. Like, when all that shit went down with my cousin, and they came here to take the report, dude had his hand on his gun the whole time, INSIDE our house.

    I know from people around town that he did the killing, but, that's just about ALL we know. They REALLY covered this shit up well.

    I found this story from last year. https://www.newschannel10.com/story/...lved-shooting/

    This one has a little video. https://www.fox13memphis.com/top-sto...exas/707719164


    What pisses me off is that, even after a Texas Ranger investigation, they STILL never said WHY they shot the kid. I mean, if there was a good reason to shoot him, why have they not released it? I HEARD that the kid, after being pulled over, possibly tried to take off driving again. I'm not 100% sure that's true, but, if it is, does that really necessitate KILLING him?

    And, yeah, there was hardly any coverage of this event.

    I really don't understand why these cops need to shoot to kill. Why can't they just shoot the person in the leg or something?

    You're trained to shoot to kill. It''s much easier to hit someone in the torso as opposed to a moving appendage.

    Yeah, they are way to quick to jump to lethal measures because they know they can just say I WAS SCARED FOR MY LIFE, and then they are absolved of any wrongdoing instead of investing any effort in attempting to deescalate situations.
