I understand the French language and can speak it, but my grammar sucks.

‘An Interpretation of This Title’: Nietzsche, Darwin and the Paradox of Content.
“In this 150th anniversary year (2009) celebrating the work of Charles Darwin, artist Joseph Kosuth creates a new commission in the library where Darwin was inspired to pursue his revolutionary, evolutionary theory.
Kosuth has consistently explored the production and role of language and meaning within art. This new work is a series of debates between Darwin and Joseph’s long time collaborators, Nietzsche and Wittgenstein.
These Kosuthian sentences and dialogues probe the paradox of content that occurs between philosophy, science and art. Presented as a set of neon diagrams and words we find Darwin’s own immediate, intuitive and creative doodles and drawings introducing the ideas that we later take as the blue prints for scientific truths. Joseph uses Nietzsche’s thoughts with a Wittgensteinian approach to interrogate the creative and philosophical slippages that occur in the convergent descriptions of philosophy in relation to art.”
Whoever is releasing all of these “Psychology Facts” needs to stop. Cuddling does not “kill depression”. Depression is a multi-faceted array of different situations, and as such there is no “one size fits all” cure. Some people respond well to medication based treatments, others to a therapeutic basis. Others respond to a mix of the two, and others yet don’t respond to any of these.
Releasing these overly simplified “facts” does a disservice to all people. Get the facts right, or don’t release anything at all.
A mini comic I did the art for, produced for Grayhaven Comics’ upcoming compilation, ‘You Are Not Alone.’ Written by :DevDestiny-Smasher:, this standalone comic also serves as a slice of backstory for Jane Fitzpatrick — one of the primary characters of the Avatar: tLA/LoK fanproject, ‘What I Learned at SRU.’ Jane’s character concept was directly based on ‘Smellerbee,’ and in the story Jane serves as a reimagining of the character.
You Are Not Alone will be: “A 200+ page anthology of hope with tales of overcoming bullying, homophobia, racism, depression and abuse.” You can find more information about it here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1429812861/you-are-not-alone-1
You can read more of Jane’s story in this short piece: http://destiny-smasher.deviantart.com/art/Side-Pocket-An-SRU-Short-211078228

The human body is fascinating
I keep telling people this shit in real life and they don’t believe me.
I’ve seen it from multiple sources, and this just adds another (albeit usually unreliable) source.
This is actually legit, guys. This is how your eyes move when you’re thinking about something. It’s actually a good way to tell if someone is lying or not, because they’ll look to their left (your right, durr) when they’re constructing false memories, and to their right when they’re actually remembering them.
HOLY CRAP. SAVING THIS FOR FUTURE REF.
Except I look straight up when thinking all the time, and I do not have a sense of smell.
And people have confirmed for me that I look to the upper left and upper right equally, regardless of if I’m lying or not.
So, if only from personal experience, this is bullshit.
Also, I cannot find any sources to verify any of it.
I concur. The sheer number of possible stimuli other than those mentioned here that could cause eye movement is staggering, and renders any attempt at creating a solid experiment showing thought/eyemovement correlation (not to even mention causation) would be highly flawed. I agree with the bullshit finding.
