Tamron Hall, CNN, just reported on a nurse in NJ who was administering flu shots and reused syringes possibly putting some 60 plus people at risk for HIV/AIDS. WTF?

Kim Davis has absolutely nothing to lose. Believe it or not, most legitimate, mainstream church and parachurch organizations want nothing to do with that kind of publicity. It mostly just opens them up and makes them a target for more trouble.

"I don't think the school would do this for the publicity since it, (the school) would have far more to lose than anything they could hope to gain."

Just like Kim Davis...

The thing that blows my mind about people who reject their own limbs (usually paralyzed ones, from an accident) is that they are with it in all other respects, and blind to the obviously visible fact that this limb is clearly attached to their body. Yet patients will try to throw the guest leg out of the bed only to find themselves on the floor.

A frustrated psychologist, faced with a man who denied his arm was his, grabbed the patient's arm and held up his hand.

"How many hands do you see?"

"Three."

"Whose hands are they?"

"Yours."

"Ever see a man with three hands?"

"Well, the hand is an extension of the arm. Since you have three arms, it thus follows that you should have 3 hands."

That blind identity integrity sounds so crazy but I must admit that I can possibly see another point of view.

I remember reading Oliver Sacks book "The man who mistook his wife for a hat." In it was a crazy story about a man that wanted to amputate his arm. I was horrified. I felt that it was right to go to any means necessary to keep this man from cutting off his arm.

And then the strangest thing happened. One day I lost my arm. I was pressing enter on my keyboard but the keyboard was broken. I looked down at it to see what was wrong but then I realized that my arm wasn't there pressing the button.

I started looking for it and couldn't find it. I saw some old man's disembodied hand on the desk. The next thing I knew, I was on the floor and could neither talk nor hear. I realized the arm was mine because it was attached to my body but I kept forgetting and it kept scaring me. Ut was heavy and I had to keep track of it. I was scared that it would get caught in a door and trap me or get cut and make me bleed to death but most of all it was just repulsive to me in a way that I had never been repulsed by anything. I didn't realize that I loved the my body until my feelings were in such stark contrast.

Well the symptoms resolved themselves and I was once again able to talk, hear, and use my arm. However I will never forget how I felt. I really wanted to get rid of my arm. The mind is a crazy, powerful thing. How are we to know what is a psychological problem that can be fixed and a hardware problem in the brain that is irreparable. In my case it was a stroke that I was young enough and healthy enough to overcome, but what if the damage was so extensive that I wasn't able to overcome it? What would it be like gasping and jumping every 5 minutes when my own limb frightened me?

No this might not be the same thing, but wouldn't you think I was insane if I said I didn't feel like my arm belonged to me and I wanted to get rid of it?

I'm thinking about showing my commitment by becoming a lifetime member. Then, maybe lifetime members will talk to me.

VA, I have to say, I think it's wicked cool that Rush Limbaugh read your post on SLS and chose to discuss it on his show. Kudos!

The latest dumb shit from the SLS blog....

People resort to divorce due to lack of satisfaction in their marriages. It is very easily to get rid of divorce after you decide to introduce a third party in your marriage. The person you introduce in your threesome will make you feel satisfied in the sexual intercourse. You will not feel offended even if you have low sex drive because before you introduce the third party you will have agreed between the two of you. This is unlike infidelity that can lead you to divorce.

[besides being in dire need of grammar lessons, the above is just ridiculous]

@VA: Rush Limbaugh is discussing your post from yesterday at this very moment. Blind Identity Integrity they call it -- I think. Rush just went to commercial after this dumb shit.

It's possible the school had one woman as the sole legal guardian of the child, and only later found out the actual situation.

I never understood why people try to get into private organizations which are at-odds with their personal values.
