Day 3!! Quick-solve case Day!!!Can you solve these cases before the rest of the group?Day 3!! Quick-solve case Day!!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
When you comment with the answer, you put the name of a team down (Sherlock, John, Moriarty, or Lestrade) the first person from a team to have the correct answer will get the points for their team...
There will be a few as we go throughout the day.
So, here we go:
1. 'Mr. Lal was having an early walk. He had just crossed a bridge when he saw a crowd of people. Rushing to them, he found that they were crowding around a dead woman. Lal was a famous detective. He took the case and started his investigation. The woman seemed to have come for an early walk, too. Seeing her handbag lying nearby, Lal ruffled through it and found what he wanted - her identity card. Her name was Lakshmi, and her house was about a ten minute drive away. Her number was also written on her card. Lal phoned the given number.
"Is this Lakshmi's residence?"
"Yes. And I am her husband. What do you want?"
"Sir, your wife is dead."
"What! No way!"
"Sir, come here q
Methods of rationality reviewI used to think that fan-fictions are mostly silly, but to take a well known book like Harry Potter and to completely re-invent it, all while teaching people about rationality, science and reasoning?Methods of rationality review2 years ago in Personal More Like This
That takes some serious writing skills.
I recommend you read Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality here as well:
Beware that it's not even concluded and that the unfinished story will probably leave you hanging at the last chapter.
Nevertheless it's a gread read.
I much prefer Eliezer Yudkowsky's Harry Potter to the original.
It's almost as if Harry Potter is replaced by someone like Ender from Ender's game, no longer someone who constantly suffers and complains, but someone who takes control/advantage of every possible situation.
One hundred and seven thumbs up.

You can sign this petition as well: https://wwws.whitehouse.gov/petitions#!/petition/end-acta-and-protect-our-right-privacy-internet/MwfSVNBK
However, the most important thing to do is to vote all politicians who support these ridiculous laws out of office,
or while elections aren't happening send them lots of letters and make phone calls.
We proved that this works by defeating SOPA. ACTA is next.

it takes 'balls' to make art.this is something I just wanna share with my watchers and followers, it's about the morale of artists - any artist, whether they draw, write, act - anything. creative people in general.it takes 'balls' to make art.1 month ago in Personal More Like This
it seems a lot of people out there don't think it takes some kind of courage to post your work online for the world to see, but I reckon it does - because I see a lot of artists, especially young or beginner artists just starting out becoming demoralized quickly by the kind of comments they get about their art or their stories. for some, it *seems* all they get is a constant stream of criticism, well-meaning or not - "your anatomy needs work" or "_____ part bothers me but the rest is ok" kinda thing~ things that read like negative throwaway comments much of the time. I've been an artist nearly ten years so I've developed a thick skin, but it's easy to ruin the confidence of a learner with a stream of nitpicks. so if any of us are commenting on others' works, it's best to say something positive about the

'Thank heavens you’re here!” exclaimed 17 year old Rob, the clerk at the little corner convenience store. Detective Brown had come in to avoid the rain and get a coffee.
The little store was warm and cozy despite the driving rain outside, and I was pleased to note that Robbie was obviously doing a good job of keeping the place neat and tidy. The floor was spotless, and all the shelves were neatly arranged.
“What’s wrong, Rob?” Brown asked.
“You just missed them!” the young boy told him. “Two men just burst into here, held a gun on me and demanded all the money in the register. Mr. Loan says if that happens, we should just give it over, so I did, but as soon as they were gone, I ran outside to see if I could get their license number, or at least see the car they were driving.&

Coming OutIt's true, I am Chinese and I was born this way.Coming Out2 years ago in Personal More Like This
At a young age I began to notice this difference. I was attracted to neither boys nor girls. In middle school, I liked math, and in college, I did my homework all night long.
Being Chinese is not a choice, it is genetic. There are risks to being Chinese because society cannot accept the union between a human and a textbook. I have Chinese friends who didn't need sex because they could foreplay instruments and get screwed by O Chem instead. Now, they don't have a social life and are shunned by others.
But fear not, life will get better. I grew up as a Chinese and I am proud of it (just look at my tumblr user name Maid-en-China ). There is the LGBTC (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Chinese) community to help you be comfortable with your Chinese orientation.

Nuances of an Annual Ritual
Which brings us to each year’s communal celebration of the passing of our lifetimes:
New Year’s Eve
So what did you “actually get done” in the past year? How closer are you to a grand goal in life? An assessment is made and then the inevitable Step 2 of the yearly process is engaged, which is often a word for word repeat of last year’s Step 2:
The New Year’s Resolution
There seem to be two main strategies that emerge at this point of facing the New Year, a “brand new morning.” The lone wolf quietly acknowledges goals not yet reached, and is even more secretive in the “new plan.” “I’ll show them,” becomes the new privat
