    The generic "chick" is different from "hippie chick". The phrase has very different connotations than the word by itself.

    Study Shows That LSD Treatments Can Actually 'Harmonise' The Brain (ARTICLE LINK)

    Excerpt
    In recent years, scientists have been uncovering potential therapeutic benefits of psychedelic substances like psilocybin and lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) - it looks like they can 'reset' the brain in people with mental health conditions.

    Now a new study has revealed exactly what's going on inside our brains when we take LSD, uncovering a connection that might explain why it relieves the symptoms of disorders such as PTSD and chronic depression.

    Research led by the Center for Brain and Cognition at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona has discovered a process of 'harmonising' across areas of the brain that don't usually work together.

    Referred to by the team as 'repertoire expansion', it suggests psychedelic substances like LSD could be encouraging the brain to develop certain patterns of activity.

    The team thinks these patterns could help compensate the disordered connections that can cause mental suffering.

    The backpedaling and retrenching here is hilarious. You've been smoked out of your holes, yet again.

    I saw a 'blooper' video clip the other night where a baseball player stood backwards at the plate and spun 360 degrees to attempt to hit the pitch. Reminded me of Ol' Blooie tryin' to hit one out of the park here.

    Keep on swingin', Blooie...

    Most can be forgiven for their sexism and bias, simply because they don't know any better and haven't been forced to examine it, arising as it likely does from male gender privilege. Things are changing, however.

    Kinda like Trump - keep on swingin', answer nothing - project onto others her own shortcomings.
    There's a lot of things they didn't tell me when I signed on with this outfit....

    Idealize Hippie chick. Many of us thought about her back in the day. Some still hold on to the dream.

    Be wary of your critics, at peace with your decisions, and work hard to be a better man.

    We can probe into this deeper in the coming days, if you like. I mean, this is the easy stuff. It's topical. If you're going to retrench on it because you've been caught out, well, there'll be plenty more to work with. The sexisms and biases are quite obviously unexamined and so will necessarily continue, one supposes. It isn't something you can "win."

    I'd think most would like to leave it lie, but undoubtedly there are a few that will keep digging, unwilling to acknowledge what the thread shows is true.

    Oh, Jeeze... Ol' Blooie has a bone in his teeth and isn't going to stop worrying it for a while. Strap in guys; this could be a fun ride!

    Edit to add: I googled images of 'hippie chick' and found this one entitled "A woman hitchhiking back to New York after a festival in 1969 Woodstock ". None of the naughty bits are showing, so hopefully I won't run afoul of Scot for this:



    Such an innocent time & place, eh?

    Look, it isn't like anything more would be expected, quite frankly. We're a collection of mostly elderly white men. Who actually expects any of us to be up-to-the-minute on any of this stuff? Relax. Learn.

    It is certainly a valid reason to cast a vote for trump. There is no other, really.

    I'm pretty sure that just is a display of affection, his hearing is fine.
