  1. Truffles and psychs aside, meditation and mindfulness are good for stabilizing yourself. NLP is great to learn for trauma work.
  2. Anesthesia is interesting. I still remember the effects 20 years ago. While under for dental work, I dreamed I was spitting out my teeth and walking around in a street mall. It was so confusing because it was so real. Consciousness is amazing.
  3. @ivankiss I've listened to many genres of music, including heavy metal, and this group I do like how they handled the flow of the instruments and the vocals, very unusual rhythm. It takes a strong, musically matured ear to listen to that, so I'm not surprised if most people here will struggle through it lol!
  4. @Scholar Holy shit. I hope the copper is ok.
  5. @Parththakkar12 1. I agree with the lockdowns, because it does slow down the spread of the virus, but with martial law, I say it depends. If a country's populace is still conducting wide-spread social gatherings despite government issuing lockdown, I think that before martial law, the government should enforce more police enforcement firstly because involving the military too early does more psychic stress to the populace. Martial law should be considered if on top of not reducing social gatherings, that there are escalating protests, especially rioting and looting. I think context-sensitive to enforcement. 2. Masks are great to have if you yourself have the virus and wouldn't want to spread it and does offer some protection for yourself. Depending on the resources of a country, there should be more consideration on more than just wearing masks but on supplying more equipment on red zones and zones likely to be hit harder. Context-sensitive enforcement. 3. I agree with this point. Personally, I already have a habit of washing my hands which helps prevent not just COVID but other diseases from spreading. I think this is important as a habit for most people. Keep yourself clean! The government should figure out a program for indoctrinating this in. 4. I'm divided on this point. I say I agree because I know that I can tolerate the loneliness and any other mental stresses that come with isolation because I have hobbies and activities like yoga, chi-gong, meditation, concentration, contemplation, self-inquiry, reading, advanced visualization techniques, and so on. I believe you are responsible for your mental health, and I understand that a majority would be scarce and diverse in how they handle loneliness and mental stresses so I think isolation is worth the risk, but this is relative. 5. If you have expertise in financing, economics, and investing then you could negotiate potential risks. 6. Personally, I think it should be mandatory. The majority will take the vaccines though. 7. I think if they stuck with the facts, and less fear-mongering, the better. 8. I agree that for the time being, censorship is best right now because these conspiracy theories are just stockpiling more fear. I'm not an expert on these issues so my explanation might be shallow.
  6. @Onemanwolfpac I agree. I forgot the name of a fallacy in philosophy, but the fallacy works exactly like that, where you set up a weak target and draw the attack into a strong target.
  7. @Leo Gura This adds to the other video as well. From what I saw, the officer during the struggle warned the suspect that he'll use a taser, and the suspect still resists. If they only had some form of ground combat training, they really could've immobilized him. I can't remember the exact video, but it showed two London/ European officers being man-handled by a resisting guy either high on drugs or something else, but those officers could've easily joint-locked the guy into submission.
  8. @Consept No, and while I try to understand another's perspective, frankly the majority of people don't care about anyone else's perspectives, as perfectly demonstrated in this thread, with this back and forth you're all having with Leo. It all depends on if your life experiences are tied to being with police and authority figures, or being antagonized by police and authority figures? This greatly shapes your main perspective on this issue, because that perspective is your way of life, way of survival of YOU.
  9. @Parththakkar12 Good point. A Russian Systema teacher I once had said a very similar thing to what you said, without undergoing training that simulates exactly what you would deal with, don't expect to react perfectly, expect to still react uncleanly. I've had many instances while learning martial arts that I was still clumsy in my reaction times and executions of my techniques and defended myself against a person using a knife on me. It wasn't a clean situation but I was able to subdue the person. In your thought experiment, I think it depends on the person with the gun if he had any training or no training. I personally would draw and give warning to the mugger. No sign of acknowledging my warning, verbally or non-verbally, and still closing the distance, I would issue the warning again. Still no response, and 7-5 meters away from my gun, I'd adjust my aim for the person's legs. If he draws any weapon from his pocket, then I'm gonna shot. Just because, in this case, he draws a taser, and it's non-lethal, he can still stun me, disable my defenses, and not only frisk me and get my wallet, but my gun, and what's to stop him from blowing my head off? I've seen his face...
  10. @Consept That's the power of stereotype and projection, don't expect most people wouldn't do the same to you. Depends on the type of dog. If it's a chihuahua or similar sized dog, I would let it go. But a bulldog, or a similar/bigger sized dog, bred and trained typically to guard places and attack people, then I would shot to disable, or if the situation was much dire, shoot to kill. If I see someone running away from me, with my stolen weapon, turning around to fire it, I would shot. And I expect you to do the same/similar to me if you find me in such a state of consciousness that I would harm you or others. I can definitely agree with you that further refinement of training would be needed for the police force. For example, that officer failed to secure a rear-choke holed onto the drunk guy. I've done martial arts training and can tell you that proper application can de-escalate the situation.
  11. 'seemed' is the keyword here. We can only know so much in a video, or in a person's direct experience, that we cannot assume anymore, otherwise, we are projecting way too much. That's fine reading stuff on him, but that's looking back to the past. Try to bring yourself into that police's position, as the situation is unfolding. As a hypothetical, you're the cop that the guy has stolen the taser from, and now you're giving chase, but you lose him. A day later, that same guy used your weapon to do evil to another person. How would you feel then, as the cop that lost his weapon?
  12. Or, he's a sociopath and lied convincingly to police. Notice how quickly he escalated the situation. We don't know much from one video, but that's the limited window of that reality.
  13. The naivety of people defending the drunk guy that stole a taser from a cop is mind-boggling. Some suggest that the cops should have let him go to apprehend him later - without thinking of the consequences of that, i.e now he has a taser, and not knowing much of him (serial killer, rapist, psychopath, sociopath...) now he has a new tool to hurt other people that happen to be in his path. Imagine him using that taser to stun and rape a woman later on that day, or break into somebody's home, assuming the cops give chase, and now a hostage situation unfolds. See how the situation has spiralled more out of control? And check your conflation here between the recent events of the George Floyd case and this situation. Too much generalizing and distortion going on here, too much black and white thinking about this situation. The reality is what it is on video, nothing more, nothing less!
  14. @Onemanwolfpac Yeah, crazy times we're living. Blame games, police brutality, race-baiting, political power struggles, cold warfares, and cover-ups of power grabs. We definitely need to meditate our thoughts on these issues away. Otherwise, we'd go insane, one way of the other.
