#3. On imageshack, copy the link while tracing a five points star in your screen, while chanting "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn". You may use blood from a virgin, but it's not necessary.

#4. Go into your profile.

In the box for the option highlighted, paste the link for your image.

#5. Submit! Remember, gingers have no soul so you must sacrifice one if your avatar depicts one.


Enjoy!

Laughing that's how it works. It's not like there's no collateral damage to the self whenever someone uses reason in an argument.

Violence is irrational.

By beating up his heart or w/e, he is already "irrational".

I was recently listening to The Panic Virus again and today's strip reminded me of a case study mentioned in that book, of a man who sustained a brain injury just so, such that his intellect/IQ was unaffected but he seemingly lost the ability to feel.

Turns out, humans can't make decisions at all without feelings/emotions. Even trivial decisions like what color pen to use to write with, etc. became crippling for this guy. Goes against 'common sense' about how decision making would be improved if feelings could be totally removed from the picture.

I'm happy to see a feminist issue tackled on the other side of the sexes.

(I said the f word, run for cover)

Okay, now, IMHO, this is the kind of strip that's getting old really fast...

And just like that, I'm done with the topic. Wink

I'm... confused as to what this strip is trying to convey.
Super-rationalism and denial of all emotions is bad? O-kay. Um. ... Does anyone REALLY think that 'no emotion' is a good thing? Is it ever really portrayed in a *positive* light? Even, say, Sherlock in the new, well, Sherlock (BBC!) series clearly has emotions.

I mean, that's sort of... that's sort of a theme that's been around since, at the very least, *Star Trek* was on TV. I don't think Vulcans were supposed to be thought of as something humanity should emulate. Emotions are important.

I'm just... this comic seems to be ridiculing a supposedly-by-society desired stereotype, but... I've *RARELY* seen that stereotype depicted in a positive light anyways.


I'm just very confused.

My boyfriend has a hard time showing emotions. He says that showing them would make him look weak. He can't let the idea go, despite knowing it's silly. It's not an obvious and plentiful stereotype but it's still around.
