After their bomber crashed in Japan in 1945, eight American Airmen were taken to Kyushu University Medical School and dissected alive. (article)

The so-called experiments performed on the living prisoners at the Kyushu University medical school included the removal of a whole lung, a stomach, and a liver, as well as pieces of brain.

After taking out one prisoner’s liver, a surgeon was heard to say, “This is a removal of the liver and we are going to see how long the man would live without his liver.”

Will El Chapo be able to escape from an American prison?

No way; he’s done for life now. Basically he was done the moment he got extradited to the US, really. The system here has its corruption, certainly; but nowhere near the level of Mexico’s.

That was always one of the main fears for foreign drug lords in fact, going all the way back to the time of Pablo Escobar; being extradited and ending up facing the full brunt of the US justice and penal system.

If he indeed is sent to the Florence, Colorado, ADMAX facility he will spend the remainder of his life (at least 22 hrs a day/365 days a year) in cells just like the one(s) photographed in this article: What it’s like inside the ‘Alcatraz of the Rockies,’ America’s toughest prison

What goes on in the mind of a potential school shooter?

I suffer from Autism, social anxiety, PTSD, and severe anger issues. At school I’m usually mocked by other peers for being the “weird white kid” and called a school shooter a lot because i had a crazy big obsession with the Columbine shooting.

I was and still an 16 yo and live in a small country with strict firearm laws but have access to them. I was going through a really bad time in my life, I was struggling with my old best friend who helped me through my mental health but started to ghost me and use me for my money, my ex girlfriend at the time has just broken up with me and my social anxiety had turned me into a suicidal and angry mess. I was dumped the night before because my ex liked another guy and I was really really upset and angry because it was like the straw that broke the camels back.

Who is Elizabeth Holmes and what was she all about?

Elizabeth Holmes was, by all outward appearances, a wunderkind Silicon Valley genius. She was going to revolutionize medical testing by developing a credit card-sized device that could analyze just a few drops of blood from a finger-prick, using a machine small enough it that could fit on your nightstand. You’d prick your finger into the card-size analyzer, you’d slot the analyzer into the machine, and the machine would beam the data off to a larger processing center at Theranos’ headquarters. It would be quick, cheap, automatic, and idiot-proof.

This would be leaps and bounds above the only prevailing alternative, which is the normal-size syringe blood draw in a doctor’s office, several days of analysis, at considerable cost. It would change the world. Everyone would have one of these devices in their homes and the enormous expense of routine medical diagnostics would be totally replaced by a small, quiet, efficient, and cheap in-home alternative. They’d be as common as any other appliance in your house. She demonstrated these devices numerous times, and on the strength of these demonstrations and on the promise of such a revolutionary and potentially ubiquitous device, she raised what was then the record for a Silicon Valley biotech startup. Her funders included Henry Kissinger, Silicon Valley billionaires, and even one of her own professors from the college that she dropped out of to start Theranos. She led Safeway on with the promise of building an on-site Theranos analysis lab in every Safeway in America – and this deal strung along for years.

What is the difference between love and infatuation?

I’ve found myself falling into the infatuation trap before. It’s really easy to confuse it with genuine love. But for me anyway, infatuation is a lot more like a drug.

It’s a feeling that consumes you with temporary euphoric highs, and deep, dark lows. It’s almost like a panicked state of obsession. It fills your brain so all you can think about is that person. You start to care less about what really matters in your own life…your goals, your friends, your work. All that matters when you’re infatuated, is them. And you feel a strong, leeching desire to mold yourself into the person you think they’d want you to be.

When you’re infatuated with someone, when that person gets closer to you in any way, you feel a rush. Like you’re on cloud 9. Like you just popped a bunch of really good ecstasy. And it feels amazing in the moment. But then when you sense them distancing from you in any way…an ignored text. A rescheduled date. Flirting with another person. Going out on the town without you. Whatever. It feels like the world is crumbling…like you’re going through a withdrawal. You panic and fear you’re going to lose them. There’s a constant push/pull. In those moments of panic all you care about is pulling them back to you. Those up and downs can be maddening over time.
