    That's just the effect I was referring to. Medical science is starting to embrace it as a legitimate treatment option, particularly for conditions that are directly related to brain function. Think I read that it works even when you tell people that they are only getting sugar pills.

    Did you have to google my name? I just ran across the name for the first time recently, decided to try it on for size.

    its about being smart. and youre probably right.

    i just ate chili fries and a burger at some supposedly 5 star cheap place, but really its only 4 stars if that.

    I never know who to attribute those kinds of quotes to, the character or the author. I usually see attribution to the author.

    Here’s a quote:

    “Death rate is holding steady at 100%.”

    the character because authors and characters arent the same thing. tarantino's characters say the N word in their movies, but we shouldnt conflate characters with their creators.

    Except characters don't generally exist in reality, and the authors actually wrote the words. When I looked up that quote it was attributed to Chuck. Many Mark Twain quotes were written by him through his characters, but usually attributed to him.

    5 star and cheap don't go together. Well maybe in Canada it does.

    in the credits of fight club there is a dick spliced in. Kind of a nod to Tyler working in the theater.

    I figured it was a star since the Arabians named many of the stars.
    Certainly had no idea it was the Alpha Star in Leo and that it and the Beta Star rotate around one another.

    Another reason to attribute to writers is in case their character is a fictional representations of a real person. Take "Team America: World Police" for instance. You wouldn't attribute (fictional) Alec Baldwin's lines in the movie simply to "Alec Baldwin".

    According to this article, this cancer cure is fake because of some made up statistics? Not saying it is real, but the author's only point against it is "chances are". Not quite enough to make a definitive declaration.
