Snark Can Kill


"Snark/sarcasm/contempt is always an indicator that something else is going on in a given situation. When it's appropriate, it tells people that you're not going to let others push you around. When it's inappropriate it shows that you feel the need to make yourself "bigger" than others. That need to put one's self above others can be a symptom of depression or some personality disorders (of course, there would have to be other symptoms present to justify a diagnosis). That being said, perpetually putting others down can be indicative of insecurity, narcissism, negative thought patterns, or jealousy. If those things are present, then you definitely want to address it because it's likely to affect your relationships negatively."

The Old Neighborhood Is Getting Worse.

Just had a lurk at the old political board. Some of the posters over there are threatening to "out" opposing poster's personal information. That pretty much cools any nostalgia for said board. The mods have not acted. I, however, remain the banned Anti-Christ.

Thank you, God, for keeping me out of there.

Odds And Ends

Labrooke's has Obama at 4/11 (73%, 11 chances to win out of 15), Romney at 2/1 (33%, one chance to win out of three) odds. These are winner take all for the final win.

Here in MO they have McCaskill at 4/7, Akin at 5/4

Intrade: Obama 56.8%/Romney 43.2%, McCaskill 63.3%/Akin 36.7%

Iowa Electronic Markets (winner-take-all, raw popular votes): Obama 64.4%, Romney 35.6%

Literally putting your money where your mouth is. Personally, I think outstate MO *is* crazy enough to put Akin into the Senate.
