Just do as I would do. Hope you're lucky enough to not be the first causality, then shoot back.

Dude we got fucking fallout shelters and SCIFs. Only thing an active shooter would find is a dozen highly trained military police with automatic weapons. I ain't afeared.

Dude who authored an amendment which virtually eliminated federal funding for gun violence research in 1996 is feeling guilty now. At least he owns up to it.

I talk about it at work the same way I talk about my diabetes. I think the stigmatization is a result of fear, "Fuck if that can happen to him what makes me think it can't happen to me."

The medications we have are very advanced, the real problem is the witch doctors have no diagnostic tests like my primary care does to detect my diabetes. We currently can't measure neurotransmitters past the blood-brain barrier. And neurotransmitters are produced throughout the body (95% of serotonin is in the gut) so blood or urine tests are useless. They go with a shot in the dark and trial and error. In my case I apparently got way too much serotonin and their first line treatment SSRIs actually caused serotonin syndrome and poisoned my butt. I remember having a dialog with Chas where I pointed out that we are close to having the technology to actually determine the levels of neurotransmitters in our brain. That would be the greatest revolution in psychiatry ever. Now they can be real doctors instead of shamans. I'll see if I can dig that up.

EDIT: I have zero fucking clue what the context of this image is, but the poor little guy looks so terrifyingly befuddled and the girl looks so determined, that I desperately want to know what lead up to her seemingly about to toss a seal at something. Blink
