Hey, tortuous (I really had to ask)
What your shell is made of, for it to be so hard?
The answer whispered out was:
“Accumulated fear-the strongest on this earth!”

Oh…wow…

I’m getting that creepy “sitting next to the crazy person on the subway” feeling now.

Formosa’s law

Formosa’s law is an unofficial rule of Usenet groups, coined by David Formosa, that states, “The truly insane have enough on their plates without us adding to it.” That is, flaming someone with an obvious mental problem can’t make it any better. Mr Formosa first came up with this rule for the net abuse newsgroups, which had many trolls and spammers, but also many people who got into trouble for not understanding or being able to deal with others effectively.

It is common, both on the Internet and in real life, to seek amusement by ridiculing people who spout bogus nonsense or engage in silly behavior, on the basis that they have effectively invited this ridicule by their own overt behavior, usually some combination of stupidity, hypocrisy, and pomposity, but in any case behavior that they presumably have control over. However, in some cases, the behavior is the result of actual mental illness or dysfunction, rather than mere boneheadedness or intentional misconduct. Formosa’s law states that if someone’s weird behavior is caused by an actual pathology, it is inappropriate for others to increase their suffering by adding ridicule. Instead, ridicule should be reserved for people who know better than to engage in their improper conduct.

This law is most often used as an explanation for not engaging a legitimately mentally-disturbed individual in a flamewar or hostile discussion, or encouraging such actions. It is often cited on alt.usenet.kooks as a reason not to issue a “Kook-of-the-Month Award”, and is also often cited as a companion to Godwin’s Law.

How interesting and very appropriate in the case of the unhappy Yorkshireman.

Thanks for the info.

To whom ever one might try to imply the above post, one can see that the author is in contradiction to himself. But maybe not?

One of the cancer patients had passed today in our hospice. 4 Harmony chips were found under his bed sheets.

Back to Harmony chip.

More interesting stuff from Karma’s emails linking to it:

“HARMONY CHIP. Probably the World’s first true
healing device.
It is not alone for this reason that I have finally put all this knowledge together in one place. The tremendous suffering and death toll created by inappropriate techniques is a thing which it behoves everyone to end. This is my contribution to this goal.”
(Then the list of books in different languages is offered for purchase). Then continues as:

[color=green]“I cannot see how it could ever cost more than $4000.00 /

Whatever you’re taking, the dosage needs to be increased.

Well, maybe you are right… considering your (in frequency increased) posts in which you resort to ad hominems.
I also begin to think that maybe you need to decrease whatever you are taking, love. wink

So, instead of your prescription,  I’ll be better off just ignoring thy posts, unless you stick to the main theme of this thread.
If you wish to talk about me -start another topic. If you wish to talk to me personally-there is private message option. I do not promise responding back to those though.
No time to waste. Sorry.
