From what I've heard there are some minor health benefits, which are weighed against some minor health risks.

In my case, there was evidently some concern about something pulling on something that oughtn't be pulled upon. I wasn't really consulted as to my opinion on the matter at the time. Grownups knew best, apparently. Something along the lines of "This is for your own good."

That is one of the original justifications I've heard for it though - it prevents masturbation.

This is in fact absolutely true - until the stitches come out. After that the effect wears off completely. I have never observed corn flakes to have any effect whatsoever, aside from the fact the corn flakes are themselves not particularly titillating even when sugar-frosted.

Have you seen The Road to Wellville? You need to watch it. 

I've actually been meaning to watch that. I saw a clip from it at this talk on the history of mental health treatment I went to a while back. Quote from the movie off IMDB "My own stools, Sir, are gigantic and have no more odor than a hot biscuit." Seems to be a lot of quotes on poop. "One should never, ever, interrupt one's desire to defecate. I have inquired at the Bronx and London Zoos as to the daily bowel evacuations of primates. It is not once, twice, or three times, sir, but four. At the end of an average day, their cages are filled with a veritable mountain of natural health." Sounds like my kind of movie.

Weird fact: John Harvey Kellogg believed that eating his corn flakes and being circumcised would prevent masturbation, which he saw as dangerous and damaging.

This just in re: corn flakes:


It would appear corn flakes can dangerously stimulating in quite a different way.

Which makes you think twice about Tony the Tiger® with his red bib on and his thumb up declaring, "They're gr-r-r-reat!"

Note, however, that Tony is himself scarce online these days, having been disappeared from his Twitter account by Kellogg, likely on account of the ceaseless barrage of unwanted propositions by sex-crazed furries:


He also appears to have picked up a certain following in gay circles, perhaps because of the neckerchief, which, in fairness, bears striking similarity to that worn by Freddie on Scooby-Doo, and, well - he never put any moves on Daphne, did he, and I think we can all agree that Velma was... uninterested. I mean, if she wanted to keep males beyond the walls, the way she wore that turtleneck sweater served as an effective barrier; she might as well have been wearing the Tower of London.

Sorry, I'm tangenting. As you were.

      Lately I've been finding myself believing that there are kangaroos and camels in the backyard but later recognize them as deer. It makes no sense because neither kangaroo nor camel are native to my country. 

      Additionally, I've been having issues with thinking I'm speaking with people and then when I ask them what we were just talking about, they either say we haven't talked about anything for a while or that we were talking about something completely unrelated to what I thought the conversation was. 

      Any ideas of what the Hell might be going on here? I've never had something like this happen persistently up until a few months ago but now it's really becoming a concern. I start seeing a new psychiatrist on the 15th of March, and will bring all of this up, but I kind of wonder if anyone can give me a glimmer of insight of what might be happening here.

      Heyyy... I was diagnosed with schizo-affective disorder. I hear voices, have obsessive/negative thoughts (possibly intrusive), have thought broadcasting, and mood swings. As of now I am on abilify-15mg, rexulti-4mg, and lexapro-20mg. I'm seeing a pdoc as well as a therapist. Though, it's really hard to keep my appointments with my therapist due to my social phobia. I keep thinking people can hear my thoughts and think of me as 'disgusting.' I even sometimes think my family & friends hear me. It's getting so hard to deal with... I think about suicide a lot... but I know deep down that it's not the only option and it is very final. There is help for me!!! 
      Anyone else going through this crappy stuff??? What medications are you on? How do you deal? What has helped you - past and present? How long have you dealt with this? 
      Feel free to add any additional information about what you are going through... I am also here to help anyone going through this because I know how hard it can get... believe me. Sometimes I am better at offering advice rather than taking my own. However, please seek help from a professional if you feel you are at your wits end.

      Hello everyone. I find lately I've been getting random moments of panic attacks, suddenly feeling overwhelmed. Seemingly caused by the most innocuous things. Just today it was windy and rainy off and on at the dog park where I take my dog scraps. it was seemingly going fine till one of the tent poles started creeking and popping which scared scrapsy to death so we decided to hang back in the parking lot over viewing the lake and I could feel it coming on so I rushed home and end up curling into a ball on the chair trying the relaxation response while repeating words to lift me up, I don't know whether it helped or not I'm kinda still dealing with the fallout. I was just wondering if anyone gets random episodes like that,sorry if it's a dumb post I just don't know much about any of my conditions.

      i don't want to puncture pictures a billion times with thumbtacks plus my nephew sometimes pulls things down from my board and i don't want thumbtacks flying everywhere.
      any ideas? i don't know if sticky tack will work.. but it seems unlikely.
