>Socialists and capitalists are not opposites. Stop it, stop being stupid.

Maybe you buy that a state sector combined with a welfare state constitutes some kind of "socialism". Fine, the word has meant many things in its long history. But it's always been defined by its opposition to capitalism. Socialism is nothing if not the opposite of capitalism.

I don't see any evidence of that. They're merely trying to capitalize on a big (meaningless) event in the calender of their pre-Columbian ancestors. Slashdot and its linked article seem to be just assuming that Mexico's ad campaign is trying to attract doomsday nuts -- but if doomsday nuts are attracted by it, so what?

The *only* bit of evidence the article has is this:

The tourism board acknowledges its promotional doomsday motives and says “Whatever your beliefs may be, come and be part off a very historic experience.”

Well, since you asked...

1. bupropion (Wellbutrin)
2. gabapentin
3. methylphenidate (Ritalin)
4. lamotrigine (Lamictal)
5. trazodone

Gabapentin and lamotrigine are classed as mood stabilizers (gabapentin is also great for anxiety, especially social anxiety), bupropion and trazodone are classed as antidepressants but I take trazodone (every night before bed) because it's also a sedative, and methylphenidate is a stimulant.
