Вопрос дня: Наркотики - это модно?

Существует ли мода на наркотики?

Это не модно - это почти норма.
Курит по моему уже каждый второй.

Сходите в клуб или на опен, половина будет под порохом ...

Можно это отрицать, но это факт.

Смешно ...


Writer's Block: Dear Abby

There's a few adages that I've come across over the years that have made a difference to me that I'll share:

From the Army:
"The hard way is always easier."
"Read the fucking manual."
"If you have to think about it, you're doing the wrong thing."

From my Grandfather:
"Don't follow everyone else. Do what you want. You could have a high rise on the moon if you want it!"
About women - "Easy on the eyes, hard on the heart, Robert."

From my Father:
"There's your story, and there's mine, somewhere in the middle is the truth."
"No matter how good you think you have it, run your hands over it. Nothing beats the sense of touch."

From Brandon:
"Never miss a good opportunity to keep your mouth shut."
"Hearing the same thing over and over makes it real hard to sympathize, man."


Since this kind of ties into what I've been thinking about lately, I'll get right to the point. I've been trying to drown my sadness in music and pot. The music helps. The pot does some of the time. Mostly it makes me numb, which is how I want to feel, but I'm not so sure that I actually require a lack of emotional grounding. I still feel like I"m hiding. I hate being depressed. This thing with Keri has gotten so overwhelming and out of my control... I want to destroy something beautiful. Not really, but it is making me have spurts of sudden, unexpected anger when I'm driving around. Not necessarily thinking about it, but I'm out of sorts, and I'm certainly more tense than usual.

Well, that was true until the last two or three days. Without knowing that I'm seeing Keri or concerning myself with how she's doing, or what she's doing, or what new asinine situation she needs me to rescue her from, I feel a fucking shit-ton better. I mean, I still don't feel like the aftershocks are over. I'm getting this feeling of impending dread that I can't describe... and no, it's not my Asian neighbor. That's just common paranoia. I'm convinced she's doing something horrible. No one this nuts just exists. There is something that made them an outcast. Like the creepy dude downstairs that I refer to as Pharaoh. I need a new locale.

So lately, I've felt a bit like:

"If you could only see the beast you've made of me / I held it in but now it seems you've set it running free."

Thanks Florence.

I've felt for a long time like there's this sick, hateful, spiteful anger in me. Sometimes I get so annoyed about things I can just fix, that it becomes physical. I don't think it's that I'm some kinda rage freak, it's more that my will to enact actual changes in the world around me is constrained. I'm held back by what I know that I can and cannot do. It's the real world, not a fiction book. And then by what I could theoretically alter in my favor in any case. I think of my sphere of influence as more than many, but still very modest. I won't be helping anyone win anything.

I guess the point of what I'm reaching towards is that I need to find a way to let all this out. In the Army, duh, it was pretty simple to deal with unceasing negativity. That's the default setting. In the world, that is another story altogether.

And on top of all of this BS, I feel that I'm digressing from the focus. I'm really confused right now. I think (and hope like you can't imagine) that it's over. I know that I've said it. I know that I've thought it. I've professed it's end. I think I've even poisoned it at some point. I just want to be free, not free to roam, rather unencumbered. I feel like I'm welded into a cage that's cemented to a truck, which is chained to submerged container ship, filled with scrap steel. Maybe that's why I've been buying such airy clothing.

Note: inFamous 2 is the fucking noise bringer. There are some irritating things, like switching from hand to hand in order to aim around tight corners is now bassackwards from the previous game. I don't understand how that happened, but fuck it. It's minor. I like upgrade system from abilities. If you're like me and play a game thoroughly, you'll earn more than enough XP to get all the goodies you need. I'm probably only 30% through (at most), so I'll see how I feel at the end. I'm a pretty mean bastard with a lightning bolt though, so I run shit in New Marais.

I wanna be a Conduit, damn it.

Do you think that criminals should be able to profit from selling their memoirs, after serving jail time?

Why shouldn't they be? I wasn't aware that being convicted of a crime automatically means you're stripped of all your other freedoms for the rest of your life. Criminals' memoirs can be quite fascinating, by the way.

Do you think that criminals should be able to profit from selling their memoirs, after serving jail time?

Short answer: yes.

One reason for this is that I have read a memoir or two written by ex-convicts and I found them amazingly insightful into human nature. People are people, whether criminals or not, and everybody has the potential to be anything from a monster to a saint. A lot of the time these memoirs help me to understand more of how certain people get stuck on certain paths in life which take them in bad directions, and the process of trying to get off those paths. Also it shows that not everything is as simple as "just do better!" People are psychologically complex, and I like to learn about how certain mindsets and their corresponding societal actions are created.

Another reason is that these books often give an insider's view on the prison and justice systems, which I believe to be very flawed, at least in the US (I don't know enough about the systems in other countries to say).

But a third reason is that, ideally, prisons are meant for rehabilitation of criminals. The goal is, in most cases, to teach the offender a lesson so that they can be let back out into society without causing further harm. People don't often think about how difficult a transition it can be to go back to normal life after being in jail for a while, especially if the sentence was very long. Sometimes people end up back in jail because they can't figure out how to get back on their feet economically and socially. If a criminal who got out of jail can try to make sense of their emotional state by writing a book, and thus become healthier, and in the process gain some economic advantage so that they won't end up turning to desperate measures in order to survive, it may help them transition into society again and become a more healthy member of it.

I think it's unfortunate that they often profit, but forbidding it has free speech implications. I'd rather we could count on publishers to use good judgment, or on people not to pay money for such books. But I know that's idealistic and unrealistic.

Writer's Block: Dear Abby

What’s the best advice you’ve ever gotten (and want to share with other LJ users)?

It wasn't so much advice as just a new and radical way of thinking.

I was talking to my (former) roommate one night.

And I for some reason was making sweeping statements about how much of a "social person" I was and how I would go crazy if I didn't have the company of others.

And he looked at me and said something simple like "actually I quite enjoy my own company".

And it really struck me. The honesty of it. Cause my kneejerk reaction was to think What a loser. He would rather be alone than with other people. But the more I thought about it, the more I realised that I was the same. I like my own company. I like doing whatever pleases me, and am quite content to be left to my own devices. The only difference is that society tells me that lonerism is not something to be content with. That it is something "bad" and "antisocial". That we should always crave attention, approval, company of others.

Thanks to my roommate, I no longer worry about such things very much anymore. I don't worry about my social standing if I dont have invitations to go out every weekend. Because I know I am capable of having just as much fun by myself.

Of course I still do like the company of others and socialising. And I don't think that extended amounts of "alone time" is necessarily healthy.

Like most things in life, balance is needed.

Do you think that criminals should be able to profit from selling their memoirs, after serving jail time?

It's their story, their lives. Besides that, if people didn't want to hear it and didn't want them to profit off it, they speak with their money and not buy it. It's the consumers that decide who makes money and who doesn't. You cannot take away someone's right to free speech just because you don't like their life decisions or what they have to say. Do that and it's a slippery slope, you'll find YOURSELF being censored soon after.

Do you think that criminals should be able to profit from selling their memoirs, after serving jail time?

This is a world obsessed with information.  Sometimes, that information is horrible information and we hapily hand money over to bad bad people to obtain said information.  Somtimes there's a lot more to the story than  we knew, and our curiosity just can't be contained.

SO no, I don't really think it's wrong for them to make a profit from selling their memoirs.   Everyone has to make their livings, and if it's interseting to sell a book about, chacnes are their job prospects post cage life aren't that great.  I probably won't be the person buying their books though.  I don't find people who do terrible things then gloat about it particiularly intersting.  BUT if it was a 'set the record straight' kind of thing, I can't say i wouldn't.

Long story short (too late I know), I say let them do what they want (writing after all isn't illegal), and let everyone who may or may not buy the book determine if they are happy to hand over cash for the story.

Sure, the pros are obvious—but what are the cons of having a friend with benefits?


There are no pros to me...I mean is sex so important that you don't care if it's meaningless or who it comes from(for those w/more than 1 option)? Nowadays young women/girls flaunt their sexual acts at school, w/their friends and don't care if it's w/a random guy or someone who's not their bf and has no intention of filling that role cuz hey why should they? I guess I'm just old fashioned and hate that today's generation have less respect,self worth or pride for themelves as generations past did. In the world where this is the new normal standard now is just sad that we have fallen so low...

Do you think that criminals should be able to profit from selling their memoirs, after serving jail time?

Yes I do. Because some of them won't be able to get decent jobs or any job at all, and then they won't have enough money. Therefore, they might go back to their old crime-filled ways- e.g. steal money- so they can afford something simple like food. If they profited from their memoirs, then they probably will make enough money to support their lives and, if they wrote ho

Do you think that criminals should be able to profit from selling their memoirs, after serving jail time?

As someone who works with girls in juvenile detention... my answer is a solid "maybe". There are girls that I am looking at right now, who will have jail change them, who will come out for the better, who will become functioning members of society. They will leave behind whatever caused them to come here, and they will never come back. Their books will benefit society, they will tell stories of perseverance and they will be able to tell their sons and daughters that they changed for the best.

There are also girls who "did nothing wrong", the cops just brought them here, they didn't do shit. Some of the girls I believe, especially when after court, they leave. I know we have some faulty judges, (e.g: the judge who let the deaf boy off of the charges of assaulting the fuck out of a teacher, because he's deaf and he couldn't hear her say "stop". This incident was not "playful fighting gone wrong". He full on charged the teacher, beat the snot out of her, and the judge let him go. But that's another rant.) but most of them are honest and fair. And these girls look at me and say "Why don't we get nice things? Why don't we get nice things? I'd like nice things."

WE'RE IN JAIL. You are in JAIL. You are a convicted felon. You did something so wrong, you got sentenced to a year in a usually lax jail. And they don't get that. And that severely annoys me. So those girls shouldn't be allowed, because it will encourage future delinquents that all cops are "pigs" and blah blah blah.

I wish I didn't get paid so much to work here.

Так это каждый автор может сделать. Тут не надо делать различий.
Если произведение оскорбляет или разжигает ненависть - автор несет ответственность.
А преступник он или кто - не важно.

Или вопрос в том, что ориентируясь на его биографию, по его стопам могут другие пойти?

Do you think that criminals should be able to profit from selling their memoirs, after serving jail time?


Absolutely. In fact, criminals should be able to profit from selling their memoirs regardless of their given state of incarceration.

What, as soon as you've been caught breaking the law, you are banned from ever expressing that experience again or making some honest money sharing your life in print? Some of history's most prominent figures have served jailtime, and often for standing up for rights the greater community prosecuting them came, years or decades later, to also believe in. Is anyone fundamentally against the idea of Nelson Mandela profiting from his memoir Long Walk to Freedom?

What if Jesus, theoretically, had profited from the New Testament?

I understand the flip side of remorselessness in a truly heinous act such as abuse, but really, if the person has served their time and their memoir is a good read, why shouldn't they profit?

What’s the best advice you’ve ever gotten (and want to share with other LJ users)?

It's hard to say the best advice, as I really think with the best advice, it's more important that we need to go ahead and really do it, or we won't be able to realize how good it is.

Talking about this topic, it's closely related with the best things ever happened in my life: meeting with my teacher, and with his continuous help for years, at no charge or anything, I have gradually walked into a different road: a road to improve myself from inner side, and get rid of these negative emotions such as the explosion of accumulated anger, the complaints for the unhappy things in life, the inner desire to find someone to rely on, etc.

You may think this is psychology. Actually it's not. It's to change from deep inside, and get freedom out of these inner emotions, and finally be myself, and learn the face the facts.

For example, I love zentai suits, and for a long while, I have heavy problem of stepping forward and get a suit for myself, as there are some talks from others, which disagree this skin tight zentai clothes. Most of all, I have worries that if families and friends have found this, how would they think of me? So for that time, I secretly browse the photos by others, and check these zentai costumes from online store, while on the other hand, I suffer the heavy burden inside.

It's with the teaching from my teacher, and repeat practice, I could gradually let these things go, as they really just prison me from doing the things I want to do, and face my role and responsibility I have to burden.

Right now I am still on the way to improve myself. Just like my teacher and many others, if you have anything want to tell, share, and get the calm, I am willing to help too.  There's no any other things involved.

LJ. You are an idiot. Why SHOULDN'T a person be able to profit from selling a memoir of any kind no matter who you are? Everyone has a right to sell their own property, including intellectual, and having gone to jail doesn't change that. I mean honestly.

Do you think that criminals should be able to profit from selling their memoirs, after serving jail time?

NO. Absolutely not. Not for any crime.

Books, movie deals, whatever.

Any money coming from their crimes should go to the victims or a victim's non-profit organization.

No criminal should be allowed to profit from his crime. EVER.

Wow, another really stupid question. Yes, anyone should be allowed to write anything if they want to. I don't even care if they say they're writing a memoir but it ends up being entirely fictitious. It's their book -- let them write whatever they want. Other people can then decide whether they want to read the book or not. *shakes head*

LJ must really be out of ideas for questions.

This questions has complicated answers. The cruelest of killers should be allowed to write, even if on death row, but not make a profit unless its to support themselves in prison. Meaning, taxpayers should not pay for that criminal, let his book support him.  If you're on death row, you best write a book to make the money to pay for a shower, uniforms, and the food you eat. If you cannot write a book, then sit and starve to death in your own filth.

If you are, however, a recovering addict or mob boss who is changing their ways, the profit from their book should either go to a drug rehab center of their choosing, or a charity of their chose.

Overall though, every criminal should write a book. I think it would be interesting to compare and contrast one criminal with another of a like crime, and start to prefect the whole field of criminal profiling. Plus it would be amazing to study in psychology.  Then, of course, it could be a form of torture. How many people want to sit and write a book? (Besides authors, but not what I'm getting at here.)

Writer's Block: Just a perfect day

Describe the best day you’ve ever had. What made it so good?

Hanging out with friends and playing video games and eating. Or watching horror movies or funny videos. Or just anything like that. I love hanging out with my best friends and doing stuff like that, it's the most perfect kind of day I could have. I can't think of a day in specific that I've had, though.

I think the memoirs have to be written WHILE serving time. 50% goes back into the criminal system to pay the court fees and all that crap before all the money comes out for publishing and lawyers and copy right.
After copyright, lawyers, rights, publishing, advertising, blah blah comes out of the 50%, the rest goes to the writer.
Provided the sum they are sometimes fined has been paid off.

And if anything in the memoirs is found to be false, they get hit with purgery.

I dont think that they have the right to profit on anything that they do, After they serve their time. If they try to while they are imprisioned, then the proceeds, go either into a fund for after serving their time..or used make restitution.

I've already answered, but am wondering why all these 'no' people have no concern for freedom of speech or censorship? Would you give up your rights that easily? Anyone can write anything, anyone can choose to purchase or NOT purchase any literature. Are you incapable of speaking with your dollar, or forming organized protest? YOu would rather have the government SILENCE someone else? And you don't think that's the first step to silencing YOU?

I don't see why not. I'm sure some people would rather they never profit again but is there any fairness in that if they've already served their time? Might as well make a living writing about their experience, its not like the world isn't going to be biased against them and make it harder for them to find a job

Do you think that criminals should be able to profit from selling their memoirs, after serving jail time?

I'd say definately no if they write just about their crimes, but if it's about their entire lives than that might be acceptable. Also, I think it somewhat depends on what crime they committed (ie murders shouldn't be able to profit from writing about their crimes).

Uh. Who the hell is anyone to tell another person what they can and cannot do with their life story and memories!? LOL. The person served their time. Fuck you.

Chances are they would have a hard time finding employment afterward anyway, so more power to them.

And this question doesn't go into circumstance. The world isn't black and white.

Even if it was a heinous crime there are people out there that like to understand how the criminal mind works, why they do the things they do, and what led up to their actions. Especially if they're really crazy. That documentation could be used for medicine, psychology and so on.

So in other words, yeah. why the fuck not if they served their time and it was a tasteful work?

It's my opinion that if you've got an interesting story to tell, you should tell it.  If people like it, they may reward you with monetary compensation.  Is it unfortunate that it came from something immoral in real life?  Yes.  Do I think that these people are right in doing so?  No.  I'm sure they paid their debt to society and all after they got out of jail, and you're supposed to forgive them.  They have a certain stigma on them for the rest of their lives anyway.  But they have a voice, let them speak.

I don’t like the idea of criminals profiting any better than you do, but in the grand scheme of things…

Even if a criminal sells his story and amasses great fortune, but in the end forfeits his own soul - it profits him nothing.

Do you think that criminals should be able to profit from selling their memoirs, after serving jail time?

yeah. they serve their time in jail and once they're out, they cant get support themselves because no one wants to hire a convict. People make biographies about serial killers and their lives and make huge profits why cant those books come from the source? the actual felon who was actually there. If this person is smart enough to find a way to support themselves after leaving prison then way to go.

oh i think it would be pretty funny if a... oh i dont know, let's say a serial killer of some sorts that had not been caught yet. If this serial killer were to.... oh i dont know.... write a FICTIONAL book on the murders that he commited, released this book to gloat, to terrified the public, and taunt police. Of course this book might be called something like, "If I were Him" I think that would be pretty awesome of him.

Do you think that criminals should be able to profit from selling their memoirs, after serving jail time?

After they have served their debt to society, according to the law, then yes.  If they choose to sell their memoirs and there are people willing to pay for them and if they owe any kind of settlement as a result of their crime and the proceeds are first used to pay that, then why not?  They served their time.  Their debt was paid.

It seems to be a matter of freedom, and here in the USA people have a hard time agreeing on what privileges someone should lose and for how long, if they commit a crime. We have some nonsense laws and policies. For example, if you get busted with drugs, you can't ever get federal financial aid in order to go to college and better yourself. If you commit a felony you lose your right to vote - depending on what state you live in. And while I am all for state's rights, voting is a constitutional right, so it doesn't seem appropriate to regulate that by state. Or to take it away, for that matter.

I know, I know - when people commit crimes they violate the rights of others. But the definition of rights is "god granted" (or not granted by fellow person), irrevocable and necessary. Privileges you can lose. Rights you cannot.

What does all the above have to do with the question? Freedom of speech / press is also a right. I think everyone should be able to tell their story no matter what they have done. It is up to the people whether to grant them an audience and pay. To balance this out, I might favor a law and at least favor civil action requiring those found guilty to fork over the profits of their story to their victims. I dislike the discouragement effect - I think it is a better world where everyone expresses themselves and the information is available. However, it is a very valid viewpoint that no one should profit off of any crime with victims. So, if there were victims, any profits should go to restitution or some positive cause.
