3D printing will change society as we know it…

hiphopfightsback:

I hope everyone realizes that with the advent of the affordable personal 3D printer people won’t be buying things from the store anymore like we do today, since we’ll all be solely buying the raw materials and blue prints online for whatever we need or want at that moment…and drones will be dropping off the raw materials at everyone’s personal (or public) drone landing pad defined by specific gps coordinates that will inevitably act as our new shipping addresses.

The thought of this is slightly fucking frightening ~

When in Paris, do you ever just think about how there's catacombs with god knows how many corpses below the streets and how bloody and brutal it was during the French Revolution. I feel like nobody thinks about it's history and just assumes it is and always has been just this heaven on earth type place. Just a thought I had :P

Well… It’s complicated to answer that because History surrounds us obviously, so we’re kinda used to think about it?
I mean, there are marble signs EVERYWHERE reminding us events that took place at this or that particular place, signs saying “Sergent XXX died here, shot by the nazis”, “XXXX children from this school have been deported during WW2, we’ll never forget”, “Baudelaire lived here from xxxx to xxxx”, “Picasso worked here from xxxx to xxxx”, “Water reached that height during the great rise of the Seine in 1910”, etc etc.
There are also scars from past violences in the monuments’ walls, like shrapnels, gunshots from WW2, or missing statues of religious or monarchist important people. There are way less “proofs” of the violence of Revolution since Haussmann rebuilt Paris around 1850/1870 and destroyed tons of buildings (almost all Paris!) to replace them with the typical 4 to 7 floors buildings you know. The most striking proof about Revolution is actually that there are no reference to monarchy, anywhere. You won’t find a “Marie-Antoinette street” or a “Louis XVI boulevard.” All references to any king or queen have been simply erased from Paris by the revolutionaries, with the only exception of a park and a monument erected where Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette have supposedly been momentarily buried right after their death, and this place has been built something like 20 years after their death. 
So what I want to say is just that it’s impossible to pass by and simply forget about it because it’s literally everywhere and we live with it. Catacombs are a very loved “attraction”, just like visiting le Père Lachaise (nannies even go there with strollers or joggers go there to run). It’s difficult not to be conscious about it. But in the meantime, it’s where we live so we have to get used to it, we can’t act surprised or super conscious about it every day, you’d spend your whole friggin day on it xD And side note, Paris is not a earth type of place, it’s just a lovely city, that’s all. The spell only last a few days, not enough for the tourists to get rid of it, but the newly settled Parisians get used to it within a few weeks ;)

From a purely factual & scientific perspective
Psychpathy is a personality disorder. It doesn’t appear as a formal diagnosis in the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) but it is closely associated with antisocial personality disorder or dissocial personality disorder. Here are some of the characteristics. 
superficial charm
grandiose sense of self-worth
pathological lying
cunning/manipulative
lack of remorse
emotional shallowness, 
lack of empathy
SOURCE
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SOCIOPATH AND PSYCHOPATH
Sociopaths and psychopaths have many characteristics in common but one key difference is that sociopaths may form emotional bonds between people, while psychopaths are unable to. It’s is believed that psychopathy is the result of genetics and faulty wiring in the brain while for sociopaths it is a result of a traumatic childhood and their environment. 
FAULTY BRAIN WIRING
Research from Georgetown University hints that the brain of a psychopath has a smaller and thinner amygdala, the part of the brain that recognizes fear. This may explain why they aren’t afraid and can’t exhibit fear. 
Research from Vanderbilt University has shown psychopaths tend to generate a lot more dopamine. In addition Dr. Kent Kiehl  of the University of New Mexico believes in may be a disorder in the paralimbic system of the brain, a system known to be involved in emotion, inhibition and emotional control.
There isn’t much research funding behind this. 
SOURCE & SOURCE
THE POPULAR STIGMA
While yes, many psychopaths have killed, murdered and raped, it’s definitly possible for someone with this disorder to lead a completely normal life and even be successful.
Take neuroscientist James Fallon, for example who discovered he had a similar brains scan to that of a psychopath and after going through a series of genetic tests, it was confirmed.
James never hurt anyone, he does admit he can be a little bit of a jerk sometimes such as not letting his grandchildren win at games, but he is far from dangerous. 
He believes it’s because of his environment, he has a loving home. His parents loved, protected and gave him a lot of attention.
