I didn't realize that stimulants would make a taser ineffective against someone, I guess because its enhancing the inhibitory parts of the brain and their ability to override the pain?

Maybe its something else like pain integrating into consciousness differently (e,g, in a non-debilitating way) while in psychosis?

Average IQ of mankind is dropping and nobody knows why

People are getting dumber. That's not a judgment; it's a global fact. In a host of leading nations, IQ scores have started to decline.

Though there are legitimate questions about the relationship between IQ and intelligence, and broad recognition that success depends as much on other virtues like grit, IQ tests in use throughout the world today really do seem to capture something meaningful and durable. Decades of research have shown that individual IQ scores predict things such as educational achievement and longevity. More broadly, the average IQ score of a country is linked to economic growth and scientific innovation.

Fetishes?

No.10621134 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
What is believed to be the cause of fetishes? I mean, some, like an attraction to pregnant women, seem to fit in fairly well to the biological drive to reproduce. But what about fetishes like bondage, which doesn’t fit in with that, and some seem completely opposed, like an attraction to robot girls. How does it even work? What causes fetishes to develop?
