Seen today on the internet:

"When the Nazis won the second world war and began to position themselves for the next part of the plan. They set up the CIA and Mossad. Now in control of NASA where the NAZI Von Braun went. . . .

Black and White are masonic colours. It does not require much research to discover that on their door entrances and elsewhere. I believe this refers to their controllers the Jesuits and the Jesuit general the Black Pope and the White Pope. Since the current Jesuit became white pope then this is a message of course they are public about that now. The Jesuit Black Pope General being in control of the Vatican also. An agreement to place between the Rothschild masons and the Jesuits which became the Bavarian Illuminati and the Jesuits took control."

It occurs to me that you can kind of tell who your real friends are when you've done something really, really heinous.

Who are the (many) who turn their backs on you and cast you out?
And who are the (few) who give you strong advice and "tough love", and stick by you through it all?

What you might be missing is that one man's "heinous" is another man's "meh." But I'm sure they're your friends, regardless. :-)

These lines from the well known song by Queen come very close to capturing how I'm feeling these day.  But I'd want to make a couple of tweaks:
they say I've gone crazy
And I'd turn the last line around, so it's more like:
There's nobody left who believes in me

It's a very isolating kind of feeling.

Not bad for a first attempt, I guess...

That vs Which: The Style Guiders Are Wrong
The which/that issue is one on which I strongly disagree with the style guide writers. The Guardian's style guide , espousing the majority view, says: This is quite easy, really: "that" defines, "which" gives extra information (often in a clause enclosed by...

It is so uncontroversial that there isn't any point in using it in a sentence. ;-)

Oh my!  One of my favorite lyricists.  I find her songs so brave.  Her music bares all.  This video took me by complete surprise - funny!  Enjoy!

Worth reading!
 
I just wrote a deeply personal post on how "MOOC's" offered by #UCSANDIEGO via #COURSERA changed my life. If you are suffering from thoughts of #suicide or are looking to accomplish #weightloss or achieve some other type of goal setting, you might want to read this article. I also recommend reading this for anyone who has had to deal with friends or family suffering from #mentalillness , #HIV, or #Homelessness Please feel free to share. http://bit.ly/1H0sIZ1

#depression #mentalhealth
I find this news very heartening, actually
 
This is a well referenced article up on +BuzzFeed that I think we should all spend the time reading and discussing seriously. One of the main questions discussed is the vague generalization Depression may provide and a proposal to subdivide it into three separate categories to, among other uses, make treatment much more effective.

I think this might be a good start. In looking at how the *+Mayo Clinic categorizes depression, it seems like the simplified term depression hurts us as a society by placing a barrier to understanding. They list eight forms of depression, each of which could easily be their own disease, investigated and treated separately. Imagine now if we included mania as well, breaking that down. I would think our ability to identify and treat people's mental illnesses would improve tenfold.
