All these people posting links about the conspiracy that the MH-17 flight was actually the MH-30 flight in some CIA conspiracy is really starting to make me feel a bit sick.  So you’re gonna tell me that all the people, all the families that are grieving for lost ones on the MH-17 are all faking it and the dutch funerals were set up by CIA as well? I bet you wouldnt be so interested in conspiracy theories if your loved ones had been on that plane. Stop watching crappy crime dramas or smoking weed and have a bit of respect #RantOver

so in LOTR’s appendices it says that legolas eventually builds a boat and takes gimli across the seas and into the west, the gray havens. you know, the place arwen isn’t allowed to go because she’s in love with a human dude bUT LEGOLAS (AKA ‘YOU LITTLE SHIT’) JUST SAYS “FUCK IT” AND SNEAKS GIMLI INTO THE GODDAMN UNDYING LANDS LIKE CONTRABAND TWIZZLERS INTO A MOVIE THEATER

best literary analysis ever

Did I miss something or wasn’t it because of her choice to stay with Aragorn in Middle Earth that she wasn’t allowed to pass? Thought her choice was the key bit.

Gimli could have just decided he was gonna live forever and go to grey havens

never forget that australias first ever winter olympics gold was won because the guy was coming dead last and everyone in front of him fell over


its happening

even better
the only reason he was in the final was bc the same thing happened in the semis
and the only reason he was in the semis was bc one of the guys that came ahead of him in the quarters was disqualified

i’m not sure if he’s the luckiest skater alive or a skater that has the power to curse other competitors.

i’ve been laughing non stop for the past like 10 minutes

The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that psychiatrists cannot reliably tell the difference between people who are mentally stable and those who are mentally unstable.

8 mentally stable people were granted admission into 12 different hospitals. They all told the same story of how they would hear a voice inside their head, it was unclear but often said “empty”, “hollow” and “thud”. 

Right after they were admitted, the patients stopped showing any signs of abnormality. They took part in activities and talked to faculty and other patients as they would normally. 

None of the psychiatrists ever stopped to say “I think they are getting better” or “they seem absolutely fine now” In fact, nurses and psychiatrists took normal activity such as walking or writing and attempted to represent it as a form of pathological behavior. 

For example, staff would point to patients waiting outside the lunchroom as a form of oral-acquisitive syndrome, when really they were just bored and were anticipating their meal. 

It’s interesting to note that even though staff didn’t recognize that these people were completely fine, patients recognized that they didn’t seem to have any problems.

This study highlights how powerful labels can be.

SOURCE & MORE INFORMATION

EVIL EXPERIMENT

Wow…this also potentially bespeaks how the people who are charged with making these patients better are only trying to create terminology and atmosphere that keep them institutionalized.
That’s pretty disturbing.

To anyone saying “well they said they heard voices obviously the doctors are going to look at them with a weary eye”

You missed the point.

They were supposed to detect the patients getting better and instead of being able to tell that, they took any action that the patients performed and totally distorted it and blew it to epic proportions to make them seem completely and utterly abnormal to a point where the patients were institutionalized for months. 

Also, sixpenceee, you missed the second part to this experiment - equally chilling, in my opinion. One hospital’s administration was angered by Rosenhan’s experiment, and challenged him to send impostor patients - mentally stable people masquerading as mentally unstable people - to their facilities. Their staff would then turn those pseudopatients away. Long story short, Rosenhan OK’d this part of the experiment. 193 people went to that hospital in that experiment period looking for help. They flagged 41 people as impostors and had doubts about another 42.

Rosenhan sent no one.

The staff of this hospital flagged impostor patients where none had existed.

That’s really worrying…

This is terrifying 

This is also, thank god, a very old experiment from which A LOT was learnt. And Rosenhan’s point wasn’t test whether they could get better or not actually.

He criticised the validity of the use of the DSM and other diagnostic manuals available at the time.  The participants all simply said that they heard the word “Thud” in their head and nothing more. According to all tolls at the time, this should not have lead to institutionalisation.  

I believe (though less confident about numbers) that 9 people went in including Rosenhan himself. 8 were diagnosed as Schizophrenic and 1 was diagnosed as bipolar.  Once in, Rosenhan had promised that by explaining the experiment they would be granted access out. But obviously that took a little longer than expected.

The follow up study is also one of my favourite parts of this.  Thank god he did this as it probably helped a lot of people and systems
