slightly disturbing news

perhaps you've noticed the advertisements at the top of the page? well, the way it works is that google 'reads' the blog and then constructs an advertisement that would be most relavent to the viewers of the blog.

have a look at the ad that i saw this afternoon on fratocrates:

yes, that is right, not only does google think that this blog is a raging alcoholic, but it also thinks that we suffer from BORDERLINE PERSONALITY DISORDER:

Linehan theorizes that borderlines are born with an innate biological tendency to react more intensely to lower levels of stress than others and to take longer to recover. They peak "higher" emotionally on less provocation and take longer coming down. In addition, they were raised in environments in which their beliefs about themselves and their environment were continually devalued and invalidated. These factors combine to create adults who are uncertain of the truth of their own feelings and who are confronted by three basic dialectics they have failed to master (and thus rush frantically from pole to pole of):

  • vulnerability vs invalidation
  • active passivity (tendency to be passive when confronted with a problem and actively seek a rescuer) vs apparent competence (appearing to be capable when in reality internally things are falling apart)
  • unremitting crises vs inhibited grief.

well, there you have it: we're fucking idiots.

Wow. That's absolutely perfect. At the moment, I'm probably a bit of both!
