Right - probably would have made better sense to say half blueish green, half reddish pink. Sorry!

Can Narcissists Feel Empathy? by Nechama in Psychonaut

True but with narcissists they only want to understand the world in so far as they learn how to make it give them what they want.

I'm not sure they can learn empathy. If empathy can be taught (I don't know what I think about this), they would have to care enough about others and having relationships with others based on something other than their desires to want to learn it. The ones I've met at least don't even seem to understand such a thing as empathy or real feelings for other based on something other than manipulating them to serve their own wants and needs exists.

When social media gets to the point they can decide which government agencies and departments for different countries can be heard from you know we're in trouble.

At least it's starting out with the right mentality which will make people more likely to prevent nonsense from ending up here also.

Such a great system! Focusing from day one on positivity and making sure everyone knows this is a non-bullying, no attacks allowed website. I was on another website (which shall remain nameless) where someone disagreed with something I said but having no justifiable response instead attacked me, my background, my culture and even attacked and insulted my mother! When I requested that the moderator delete that comment they called me a baby, said I needed to fight my own battles and to fight fire with fire. That was when I decided to look for another platform. Thanks for setting up one that will tolerate no abuse. The hierarchy you post for everyone is great!

Signed up yesterday. So glad there's an alternative to Reddit. I was getting tired of all the negativity. I love that there are no downvotes here. It's so much better to have upvotes as you can tell popular posts and if you don't like something you can just not vote for it instead of bashing it with a down vote. I think downvotes also lead to manipulation of posts by being able to increase the discrepancy between posts making it easier to force a post higher by forcing others lower. I also really like the opt out vs. opt in system. After a year I still have no idea what all the subreddits were and kept being surprised when I found a new one that I was interested in. This way you can see right away what's available and then create a list of all those you want by slowly excluding those you don't. This means you won't miss any you want to follow. Thanks for creating this! I can't wait to learn more about it and read what others have posted here.

In an episode of "Parts Unknown" based in Massachusetts, Anthony Bourdain brought attention to how big pharma and their pharmaceutical opiates are the precursor to heroin addiction. by magnora7 in AnthonyBourdain

It takes a lot of courage to discuss your own past with drugs on national television. He had so much to offer in terms of being a role model and was so down to earth and up front in the way he presented information. It's such a shame he felt the need to do what he did.
