  1. Yes. https://t.co/2XKyExz2gB

  2. This thread seems extraordinarily relevant.
  3. Considering the potentially valuable inside information we could gain on the Houston Texans, D. Manning could be interesting. ... Who am I kidding?
  4. If I hadn't (mostly) agreed (Gisele?), I'd have never written "Tom Brady" in the first place ;)
  5. Just for the sake of satisfying my pathological intellectual curiousity in hypothetical matters, I'd like to see what would happen if we put Superman in charge of the Colts for a month or two. For some reason, I get the feeling that it's not the most insane thought I've ever shared on this board.
  6. Let's take nicotine as an example, as it's one of the most potent and used drugs there are: By absorbing nicotine you create a release of dopamine. This triggers a sense of happiness in the brain. Basically, everytime you smoke, you induce happiness. This is the same feeling as one would have (or so I imagine) when watching their kid ride the bike for the first time. Or hearing their kid say their first word. Of course, it's to a varying degree, and different drugs gives you different reactions. But largely, I think addiction can be summed up in this regard. The same way you let your hunt for
  7. Emotions are quite hard to decipher, especially for me. Being emotionally handicapped (a degree of autism) makes me think about the world in ways that differ from what most people do, especially with regards to emotion. When I think about emotions, and the use thereof, I think about the absence of logic. I think of a chemically induced force that makes you act in a certain manner, based on drugs in your system. Basically "love" to me is a matter of chemicals (especially oxytocin). I think in some way rationality or rational behavior can be looked upon as the composition of emotions relative to
  8. Perhaps you're right. However: Aren't we all drug addicts in the sense that dopamine, serotonin, adrenaline, oxytocin and so on make us crave for certain stimuli? If you look at it this way, the behavior of an addict is basically the same thing as doing the things you do, based on how the things you do make you feel. To me, there's no real difference, except for the choice of stimuli. Personally, I think the mantra "it takes one to know one" is foolish in a lot of ways. Say you want to know what it's like to live in France. You then ask your friend - who has lived there for 20 years, but curre
  9. My first thought: Make a joke orchestrated around drugs/addiction/Jim Irsay in relation to the OP. My second thought: "Too soon".
  10. I'm not a lawyer in the US, but I've studied US law in context of my danish law degree. I could probably write hundreds of pages why the legal system I'm eductated to understand is a bunch of semantics designed to manipulate and distort the truth to make it fit individual goals. If that is true in Denmark (whose legal system and democratic process is often heralded among international scholars as an ideal), I think it's fair to assume it probably would be true in the US as well. Don't ever trust a lawyer and the legal system he manipulates for the greed of his own or that of his clients. The l
  11. I failed at explaining my views on the environmental factors in a broader sense: It's basically the sum of every experience you've ever had in any shape or form. All those stimuli are in some way kept in your unconscious - you do not choose which are stored and which aren't. In fact, we don't really know how this works on a larger scale. However, some of these stimuli are in some shape or form stored, which leads you to have thoughts that lead you to perform actions. Those actions lead you to receive new stimuli and the circle continues. What I'm saying is: What you do today, what we're doing
