Comment Re:The Decline of Big Media has been Noticed (Score 1) 184

The problem is that people equate being able and allowed to tell the truth with some sort of obligation to do so, and that's dangerous. You have the same effect as you do with people being dissatisfied with the medical system or with science. I do not want to believe in established science/pharmacy/news, and there is someone else who sells "non-establishment" science/pharmacy/news, so he must be right because "the establishment" is something I don't trust.

And that's dangerous.

Just because A is false doesn't automatically mean that B is true just because B contradicts A.

This is actually a sad case, but even though there are those cases and they are not as rare as one would think, they are not the main route for heroin. People addicted to painkillers are usually reaching for solutions that are closer to legal prescription drugs.

Heroin, at least to my knowledge, is an exit drug, used by people who have pretty much reached the end.

Doing so wouldn't really have told them anything considering I don't have a Facebook account (at least not one that is by any means tied to my name), don't use Twitter or other social media and generally don't really have a very visible online profile.

Hey, maybe that made me suspicious. Time to create a meaningless, happy-go-lucky Facebook page. Which gets me back to the idea I had a while ago, creating a service where you can pimp your Facebook profile so recruiters, law enforcement and in-laws think you're the perfect guy. Kinda like SEO for social media...

A girl licking a boot sure isn't getting me hard either but allegedly that's considered porn by some people. Hell, there's people getting off to the weirdest shit you could imagine. I remember a story about a guy who gets off by sticking his dick into hamburger meat, does that mean every time I have a burger I'm essentially participating in hard vore?
