    I hear potassium deficiency can cause some twitching.

    So shove those bananas down your through like you're a closeted sailor on shore leave.

    potassium deficiency OR sodium overload can both cause twitching, if i recall how nerves work

    Yup, I've had a lot of salt the past two days so I'm sure that's what it is coupled with stress I imagine my body is freaking out. Guess I should probably go relax sometime today.

    Dear Fartacus,

    Did you intend on having everyone refer to you as Fart? Does it bring levity to your day or displeasure to your disposition?

    With Great Concern and Well Wishes,

    I did not think that far, actually, no!

    The only reason it bothers me though is because it makes ego-searching that term impossible

    don't go over-estimating people's rationality

    also I think it's important to distinguish between mobs which are aggressive, and an individual being attacked requesting help from a group.

    Basically if a group is going after an individual, they've already established a sort of common cause

    Cops, for instance, are a lot more reckless and dangerous when working in groups than when working alone

    oh I include myself in that, don't get me wrong

    I don't think I attached a personal judgment to it either, if I recall

    but stating a fact about implicit bias prevalence in American whites is very different from me telling you how I would act in a given situation

    I'd like to think I'd be enlightened sure, but I have to admit (to my own shame and embarassment) I absolutely get nervous when I'm in an all-black neighborhood by myself. So no I probably wouldn't give an accurate answer. Even if I were trying to be honest, it's really hard to separate what you'd want to do, or what you know is right, from what you actually think you'll do.

    It's a pretty uncontested thing in research on the subject

    if you live in America

    you've been socialized to a lot of stereotypes about black people that influence your cognition whether you subscribe to them consciously or not

    I'm not saying it makes you a bad person

    my girlfriend went on the nuvaring recently

    she's put on a few pounds, as many women do on birth control, probably encouraged by her recent trip to France (butter and cream and bread, plz)
