So, Knoxville is in the news because some college guy went to the hospital after being given an alcohol enema. Seems that if you’re in a hurry (I guess), you can speed up getting drunk without all that annoying drinking by using tubing to put it in your pooper, bypassing your liver and giving you […]

So, Knoxville is in the news because some college guy went to the hospital after being given an alcohol enema. Seems that if you’re in a hurry (I guess), you can speed up getting drunk without all that annoying drinking by using tubing to put it in your pooper, bypassing your liver and giving you a buzz quicker. Why on Earth anyone would do that or how it comes up in conversation is beyond me. But, there you go.

Libertarian personality
Someone studied it and concluded that libertarians are cold and calculating: The study collated the results of 16 personality surveys and experiments completed by nearly 12,000 self-identified libertarians who visited YourMorals.org. The researchers compared the libertarians to tens of thousands of self-identified liberals and conservatives. It was hardly surprising that the team found that libertarians […]

Someone studied it and concluded that libertarians are cold and calculating:

The study collated the results of 16 personality surveys and experiments completed by nearly 12,000 self-identified libertarians who visited YourMorals.org. The researchers compared the libertarians to tens of thousands of self-identified liberals and conservatives. It was hardly surprising that the team found that libertarians strongly value liberty, especially the “negative liberty” of freedom from interference by others. Given the philosophy of their heroes, from John Locke and John Stuart Mill to Ayn Rand and Ron Paul, it also comes as no surprise that libertarians are also individualistic, stressing the right and the need for people to stand on their own two feet, rather than the duty of others, or government, to care for people.

Perhaps more intriguingly, when libertarians reacted to moral dilemmas and in other tests, they displayed less emotion, less empathy and less disgust than either conservatives or liberals. They appeared to use “cold” calculation to reach utilitarian conclusions about whether (for instance) to save lives by sacrificing fewer lives. They reached correct, rather than intuitive, answers to math and logic problems, and they enjoyed “effortful and thoughtful cognitive tasks” more than others do.

The researchers found that libertarians had the most “masculine” psychological profile, while liberals had the most feminine, and these results held up even when they examined each gender separately, which “may explain why libertarianism appeals to men more than women.”

My god! They think and do math!

HOLY CRAP SOMEONE POSTED A GUN PIC ON THE FACEBOOK
That someone is a candidate with an R after his name so The Tennessean tries to make it into a big deal. And anyone reading that thinking it was a threat is probably a lunatic.

Safety: There’s no app for that

An app called StreetSafe does, well, some stuff:

StreetSafe, a relatively new app for smartphones, claims that for a minimum of $12.50 a month, it will coach you with safety advice in frightening areas on your way to any location. One first feature is called “Walk With Me,” where the user can connect with a Safety Advisor while walking down a street. If the user feels unsafe, the Safety Advisor will stay on the line with you until you have reached your destination. In the event that something does happen to you while on the phone with a Safety Advisor, they will be able to call 911.

Or, you know, if your smartphone had a phone you could call 911 yourself. The single best safety tool at anyone’s disposal is situational awareness. A gun is nice but won’t help if you’re distracted and not paying attention. Seems to me time spent staring at your phone’s safety app is time better spent paying attention to what you’re doing and what’s happening around you.
