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.

(German Federal Archives)

Who was the most brutal SS officer?

Oskar Dirlewanger, no questions. He was hated by the friends and foes alike. He was so cruel – and so hated – that there was an unofficial reward in Wehrmacht for killing him.

Oskar Dirlewanger was a convicted paedophile and criminal. Dirlewanger is invariably described as an extremely cruel person by historians and researchers, including as “a psychopathic killer and child molester” by Steven Zaloga, “violently sadistic” by Richard Rhodes, “an expert in extermination and a devotee of sadism and necrophilia” by J. Bowyer Bell, and “a sadist and necrophiliac” by Bryan Mark Rigg. According to Timothy Snyder, “in all the theatres of the Second World War, few could compete in cruelty with Dirlewanger”.

What is feederism?

People develop various tastes in their sexual development and it’s beyond their control. You could just as easily ask the question: “Why do some people like people of the same gender?” The short answer is that ‘it’s just how they’re wired.’

I am inclined to feederism myself and I don’t know where it came from or exactly when it first occurred to me but seeing females that have gained weight or are gaining weight is sexually arousing to me. Personally, (to share more than you want) I have this inclination towards fulfilling gender roles where the ideal feminine form is soft, gentle and pampered, being brought nourishment by a strong, lean, provider of a male. When the female is able to become plump it signifies that these roles (rolls? – pun) are being filled. It’s such a strong impulse that I don’t particularly find myself compelled to seek intercourse in a relationship (although I do engage and enjoy in it – sorry if tmi).

What is it like to be a lifelong smoker?

I have smoked for 23 years. I am currently 39 years old. Apart from internal damage that I just don’t know about yet, here is how smoking has affected my life:

  1. Running for any considerable distance is impossible. I lose my breath quickly.
  2. Swimming for any considerable distance is impossible. I lose my breath quickly.
  3. I clear my throat about 100 times per day.
  4. I cough about 100 times per day.
  5. I wake up with a sore throat regularly.
  6. I, along with my home and vehicle, smell like cigarette butts.
  7. The reward centers of my brain are broken—I’m constantly looking forward to the next cigarette even though they are not pleasurable in any real way.
  8. I spend more than $100 per month on cigarettes.
  9. No matter where I am or what I’m doing, I have a nagging compulsion to stop and smoke. Whether I’m working, relaxing, playing video games, having a conversation with friends or anything else, I am always anticipating the next “smoke break”. To a smoker, life is what happens between cigarettes…which is pathetic and sad.
  10. Running out of cigarettes is not an option. If I had no cigarettes, I would have an anxiety attack. Smokers like to call them “nicotine fits” but let’s call them what they really are—ANXIETY ATTACKS. They’re a symptom of mental illness and severe addiction.

How do fat acceptance activist rationalize the detriments of being obese?

This is a difficult subject to approach with the majority of society because it’s often met with disbelief due to the lifetime of inaccurate information we’ve been fed. Everything you think you know? Rethink it.

It’s important to note that the creation of our health and fat concern was initially called the “Obesity Parasite.” This started in the late 1800’s and was concocted by the upper class in order to differentiate themselves and reclaim their social power over the lower classes. This wasn’t endorsed by physicians (in fact, they fought it) until the concept became so popular that they caved from the peer pressure. It was created by the people; not the doctors. Did ya hear that? People. Not doctors. Wanna know more about the history behind why we hate ourselves? Well, GOOD NEWS! I’ve compiled it and resources here.

What we believe about health and fat bodies is often inaccurate. Here. Let me blow your mind: Skinny bodies can be unhealthy. Fat bodies can be unhealthy. Skinny bodies can be healthy. And fat bodies can be healthy.What does this mean? It means we must remove weight from the health equation. Period. That leaves us to look at the other signifiers of health. So, check out this list of symptoms compiled in a 2007 UCLA study: “Increased all-cause mortality and to increased mortality from cardiovascular disease. Increased risk for myocardial infarction, stroke, and diabetes, increased high density lipoprotein cholesterol, increased systolic and diastolic blood pressure, and even suppressed immune function.”

What is it like to train on steroids?

This answer is based on testosterone. Other steroids can vary… although broadly similar.

Once they start to kick in, you’ll notice:

  1. Improved strength – nothing crazy, but you will consistently increase your current max weights every week of your cycle. In every exercise. If you have hit a plateau anywhere you’ll smash through it. You need to be careful you don’t damage joints and tendons (although with testosterone the added water helps with this).
  2. Improved endurance. You’ll be able to do more reps and more sets before you run out of power. There’s just more gas in the tank.
  3. Improved focus. It’s much easier to make the mind-muscle connection. Rather then dragging your tired ass through a difficult workout – you’ll be fully focused on every movement and what muscle you are hitting. You’ll be able to channel the added focus/aggression to your goals.
  4. Improved recovery. You’ll be able to hit it hard in the gym every time – because you won’t be sore from the previous punishing you gave yourself. You can train every day of the week without significant soreness. Sometimes you feel like you can train twice a day. I always give the example of my leg day. On cycle I can do an insane squatting session, then wake up the next day like nothing happened. Normally that would be me effectively disabled for a couple of days. I get bad DOMS in the legs… but not on cycle.
  5. Improved libido. Be careful which hot gym girls you look at and what you let wander into your thoughts, because you’ll have yourself a giant unwanted erection. It’s happened to me on a treadmill before to the point where I had to stop!
  6. Overall feeling of well being and that “everything is gonna be ok”.

When a load of beautiful women hang around rich guys, are they paid directly? Just in drinks? Where do they go at the end of the day? Do they hang around rich guys as a job?

Source: I used to work in Las Vegas nightclubs, my friends are hosts at Las Vegas nightclubs and we see/talk about this topic often. We also know many of these girls personally.

There are 3 different types of girls that we’re talking about here.

Atmosphere models, Companions(unpaid atmosphere models), Escorts

Atmosphere Models are attractive girls who are hired by a venue (club/bar etc) to hang out with guests and participate in the day’s activities. They are to dress like normal girls and are not supposed to tell people that they are hired workers, BUT what they do is completely legal. They are hired simply to make the venue look better because ‘hot’ girls hang out there. They are not hired on the basis of being a hooker or an escort. If they happen to have sex with someone after attending the event, that is individual to them and sometimes that happens. I know girls who are atmosphere models who are just normal chicks, they get paid $200 to hang out at the party, and then they go home as soon as they aren’t paid anymore. I also know atmosphere models who fuck rich dudes and go on their boats and all of the above, but they don’t consider themselves escorts, they just hang with the rich dudes and go on vacations with them because it seems like a fun opportunity and also…these girls sometimes want to get wifed up and get married to a rich guy. What better way to meet a rich guy than to be an atmosphere model and get paid to hang around rich dudes. Honestly this is a pretty good business venture for these girls.

What could Conor McGregor have done differently against Khabib to secure a win?

Here is the bottom line on the reality of Conor McGregor versus the mythology that seems to have grown up around the promotional aspects of his fights.

Conor McGregor is a fantastic fighter, but he’s not now, nor really has he ever been a dominant force at lightweight. Conor “made his bones” in MMA essentially cutting massive amounts of weight and fighting as an oversized 145 pounder. In that weight class – yea he was mauling people. 
Conor has only really had 3 opponents at lightweight, and that’s Eddie Alvarez, Nate Diaz and Khabib.

The Alvarez fight was a stellar performance by McGregor, but in it’s proper context it should be viewed as an ideal matchup for him. Alvarez is a beast, but he’s got some of the worst boxing in the sport – for someone with Conor’s timing and range, exposing Alvarez was a walk in the park. Then along came Nate – and suddenly Conor’s left hand didn’t seem as devastating as it appeared at 145 pounds. And Nate can box. The result was an exhausted Conor getting choked out.

How do inmates make wine in prison?

Personally, I never met anyone who could make a smooth ass kicking batch of mash better than I! My recipe and procedure of manufacturing I never shared with anyone till today. I spent almost 2 years experimenting with different ingredients and different techniques. I just didn’t like the taste of other peoples mash. I wanted to find the perfect ingredients and best taste. As is with many things in life, sometimes simple is better! Alcohol is actually very easy to produce. Even an apple falling off a tree ferments on the ground with the sugar turning to alcohol. I’ll list the ingredients and how to make it all. Most guys use Yeast in their brew, not me. Yeast only makes it cook faster, gives a yeast taste, produces a lot of gas and odor. Plus it just doesn’t seem to produce as much alcohol doing it that way. I prefer slow cooking mine. It’s all so simple to do.
