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:

https://www.huffpost.com/entry/tony-tiger-frosted-flakes-horny-twitter-furries_n_5bc015e8e4b01a01d689054b

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.

"Was Tony The Tiger Driven Off Twitter By Unbelievably Horny Furries?" 😆 "Let’s keep things gr-r-reat – & family-friendly if you could. Cubs could be watching" said Tony. 🤣 Furries are weird though. As much as I'd like to expand my mind to encompass all differences between people - "You get off on dressing as a mascot? OK. What the fuck?"

Yes! Freddie in Scooby-Doo was gay. I think Daphne always thought she had a chance with him because she never seemed very bright. I always prefered Velma.

I think I've been banned on YouTube. My replies aren't showing up. I was only ever offensive to people who were offensive to other people. I was much better at being offensive than they were though. Maybe too much better.

Ooh! I'm back on Youtube. Someone called me a Yid. I said I'm not Jewish, I'm just more intelligent than you. George Soros and the lizard people! Wait! I'm the one with mental health problems? Really doesn't help with recovery when you realise that a lot of "normal" people are absolutely fucking insane. It's not about acting rationally, it's about conforming to the common form of insanity. Well adjusted to a profoundly sick society and all that. The world is not rational. You have to be a certain type of crazy in order to be normal. I'm maybe going too far with this. Mental illness is awful of course, and it doesn't let you see beyond the Matrix or any such shit. It's just that people are pretty damn weird, and they're all weird in the same way, so that's "normal". A lot of human behaviour is just insanity.

Chester Bennington and Chris Cornell were cowards for killing themselves. Fucking pisses me off to hear that shit. They were both singers if you're wondering who I'm talking about. Black hole sun and crawling in my skin. The complete lack of understanding calling them cowards displays. Not that and not the opposite either. Not heroic or brave, just tragic. The easy way out. I've felt suicidal and there's nothing fucking easy about it. I have a lot of patience for people who don't understand mental illness. It's difficult and I don't expect people to automatically understand. In this case people are offering their opinion about something they have fuck all experience of, and they should really just shut the fuck up. Cowards? I don't know why they killed themselves but that's nowhere near. I was making friends on YouTube by asking people to say what they thought about quantum mechanics. Oh, so you don't know anything about quantum mechanics and you don't have an opinion? May I suggest, dear sir or madam, that you don't know what it's like to feel suicidal either, and if you're wary of talking about quantum mechanics, lest you appear ignorant, you certainly don't know what such despair feels like, and maybe you should shut your stupid fucking mouth.

I went Out yesterday. My son really needed a haircut, and I had been putting it off for weeks, because I haven't been doing so well lately. Anyway, forced myself Out Of The House, into The World. I hadn't made an appointment, so I walked into a shop, and said they could do it in an hour. Not enough time to go home and back, so wandered the streets (with my three kids, 2 Aspies+, and one ADHD, ODD). Got distracted by some really soft swim shirts, and was pawing at them when the sales assistant came to see if we needed help. I apologised for wasting her time, as I had merely got distracted by the soft, shiny things, explained we all had ADHD-and she said THE WORDS. "Oh, I think we're all a bit on the spectrum/adhd etc, etc". I managed to not punch her in the face, but did say, no, it doesn't work like that. She replied that her family would disagree. In a supreme effort not to lose my shit, I said, so not diagnosed then, making her feel better about herself (why do we always have to make THEM feel better?), and quickly departed before I lost my composure. The outing ended up taking about 4 hours, I was coming off a 2 day migraine, and now I feel like utter shit. It's 1.20pm, and I have managed to clean my teeth and wash my face. Fuck this shit. Fuck people and fuck my stupid fucked up brain.

Sorry about the rant. You people are nice.

I'm currently listening on repeat (and have been for the last three days) to Red Masterpiece, by kroh. My brain has latched onto it like some sort of parasite, and won't let go. The problem is, the song is quite basic, and my brain is screaming for MORE of something, like I've had a small amount of crack, but NEED more ( I don't do crack). I feel like maybe it needs to be played on four different devices, all one nanosecond behind the other, to give it depth. It's driving me insane, but omg it's so beautiful I want to cry.

@KJ, the same thing happens to me with songs. I spent five hours today listening to the same album looping over and over again, and that is nowhere near a record. Plus, it’s only one day...

Lol, I think 3 weeks is my record for a song on loop ( I generally wear my headphones for about 8hrs a day). It's just THIS song. It's just not quite enough. But I can't change it. C'est la vie.

Gun control. It's weird to look at America and hear the bullshit arguments in favour of guns. I saw a clip today from someone's channel which has common sense in the title. From my experience when someone uses the phrase 'common sense' they tend to be talking shite. No need to rationalise that dumb opinion, it's common sense! Common sense has reached some pretty stupid conclusions in the past, and that's why we invented science. If she isn't a witch she'll drown, it's common sense. If we'd relied on common sense to create the iPhone it would just be a fucking potato with a smiley face drawn on it. Alexa! What's the name of a root vegetable that was originally native to the Americas? Oh she's good.

But anyhoo, gun control. There's the dumb argument that you can kill people with other things besides guns, so it's unfair to focus on guns. Guns don't kill people, people kill people, and it makes no difference if they used a gun or a cheese grater. No. Guns make it easier to kill people. We used to use rocks and pieces of wood to kill people, then we went on to things like bows and arrows and swords, and then we invented firearms, which turn out to be a better way to kill someone. Do you remember the scene from Indiana Jones where the guy swirls his sword around and Indy just shoots him? Gun beats sword, which is why the army goes with guns rather than swords. Sure you can kill someone with baseball bat but you'd be pissed off if you joined the army and that's all they gave you. Take this baseball bat and charge that machine-gun nest. Guns are better at killing people, it's why they were fucking invented.

But people use that dumb argument. Actually, the clip I was watching mention explosives. A suicide bomber can strap explosives to themselves and kill a lot of people so why focus on guns? Well ... you can't go to your local explosives shop and buy semtex, because that shit is dangerous and it's tightly controlled. Not a good parallel to draw there. You can't buy explosives from your local store because that wouldn't turn out well. But guns! How's that working out? I once used a shotgun and it was fun. Wouldn't want one around the house though. If someone in the UK owns a gun - why? what the fuck is wrong with you? Very strict controls over here though I've never felt oppressed.

It's a different culture I suppose. All those mass shootings but it's enshrined in the constitution. How's gun ownership working out over there? All feel safe? That was another argument mentioned in the clip. Something about how he couldn't feel safe not owning a gun because everyone else has guns. Sure, but that's also a pretty good argument to ban them. Your own freedom has to be balanced against the freedom of others. All those dickheads feeling oppressed for having to wear masks to stop the spread of covid. Fuck off. The number one right is the right to life, and other rights can be ignored if they endanger that right. But you don't like wearing a mask? Well I don't like dying of covid. What do you think is more important there you selfish prick? Same with guns really. In an ideal world everyone should be able to own a gun. We aren't living in an ideal world.

Erm - actually, that would make a significant difference in terms of duration, agony, and the need for a mop.

I live in a rural residential area in Kentucky. I can see the local high school from my house. Routinely, the peace of my day can be rudely shattered by the sound of gunfire from the yard of my next-door neighbor across the street, or from that of my neighbor directly adjacent to me on the north. There is nothing besides air, the glass of my windows, and the hope that they will point their muzzles in the right direction that keeps a bullet from entering my house. They are doing all this shooting of things in their yards not because they are under perpetual threat (nothing ever happens here) but because they find it fun to shoot things.

The vast majority of Americans frothing at the mouth over the Second Amendment are actually rising in defense of their belief in their sacred right of Not Being Told What To Do. The way the concept of personal liberty has become warped in America disturbs me greatly - it has become a rallying-cry for the selfish and the entitled who childishly insist upon their way at the expense of others, ignoring the fact that liberty is a shared state that must balance the rights of all who might enjoy it. For if only some do, then their liberty is meaningless.

No, I do not feel safe in Fortress America. No other nation may be mad enough to invade us because there’s a gun behind every bush, but we’re a far greater danger to ourselves. I do not own a firearm, and I never will. The only legitimate excuse for picking up a deadly weapon is to use it, and I will not. Guns aren’t for threatening people. Words are my weapons, and I am heavily armed.

      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.

      any ideas? i don't know if sticky tack will work.. but it seems unlikely.
