In response to the following(s):

is so damn quiet without Atlas Sad

Yes we need someone else to make 10 new topics a day with the latest fox news/NPR talking points.  

What is a common symptom of schizophrenia?

  • Occasional episodes of narcolepsy (only during the day)
  • A difficulty understanding and using information (see the FLT thread)
  • A rash on the back of the hands (mostly on the right palm).
  • Gastrointestinal distress (Holy Shit!)

Adding the fact that I think people are reading my posts, I think l'm Canadian.

Your list of symptoms threw me off.  I found it odd.  But, then again, maybe it was intended to be humorous.

Schizophrenia is about an excess of dopamine and responding to "internal stimuli."  Symptoms of schizophrenia are divided into two subtypes:  positive and negative symptoms (not "good" and "bad," but rather symptoms that either cause an excess or absence of typical functioning).  

For example, a positive symptom of schizophrenia may be laughing without an appropriate external cue to make the person laugh.  A negative symptom might be catatonia.  Positive symptoms are the things we typically think about when we think of schizophrenia such as auditory and visual hallucinations (e.g. if you hear funny voices, that may cause you to laugh).

Antipsychotic medications are designed to treat the positive symptoms and often do so successfully (or they at least cause a significant reduction of positive symptoms).  Conversely, negative symptoms are basically untreated by antipsychotic medications and are typically seen as more debilitating.  

Antipsychotics are split into two subtypes:  typical and atypical antipsychotics.  Typical antipsychotics were the first generation of antipsychotics (e.g. Haldol) while atypical antipsychotics (e.g. clozapine) are the 2nd generation of antipsychotics.  While both subtypes primarily treat positive symptoms only, and while there is (generally) no difference in general efficacy of either generation of antipsychotics, the atypical antipsychotics are generally purported to be safer and have decreased levels of side effects such as tardive diskenesia (though they usually do not eliminate the side effects completely).

I thought it was SomethingAwful which was supposed to be obsessed with Atlas.

And while people may have suggested that Atlas has some serious mental health issues, even the armchair psychologists have never suggested schizophrenia as a likely diagnosis.  His behaviour is much more suggestive of a major mood disorder.

All I can say is that this is Bitcoin. I don't believe it until I see six confirmations.

So, what you're saying is that not only do I bring value to this BBS, but so do those that are following my every move. Interesting! (I'm sure Harv would have had a better retort than that, but that's the best I can do--while others watch me)

Unremorsefully, I snatched it from another site, hence its exclusion.

My favorite item in the salad is America, but I am pretty sure it's spelled Ammmuuurica.

How do you know it's not really there?

Maybe schizophrenics have an incredible ability and we make the mistake of pushing them to the distant corners of society.  Maybe you're a savaant...at seeing shadows  Grin

What is the shadow telling you?  Make friends with it.

This is so weird! I did exactly what you said, but prior to reading your post. I asked my new shadow person his name, and he answered with "Savaant". Now that I've made contact, a whole host of "Shadow People" have been following me.

Here's a picture of Savaant:
