#4253482 England leaves the european union

Posted zenga on 05 November 2014 - 05:04 AM

Anyone thinking this is the beginning of the end for the EU is completely uninformed of what the EU has actually achieved. Yes there are plenty of things that don't work cq. could be improved. But the + far outweighs the -. The populism of the 'eurosceptics' (who btw still refuse to explain the consequences of the alternatives to their voters) pushed Cameron into promising a referendum on one hand, and on the other hand he knows the economical importance of the EU for the UK.

A EU that is close to being perfect is probably utopia, but if anything it's a long term process. Short term populism won't change that.

I'm a bit curious. Could you give some examples of positive things achieved by EU ?
a few out of the top of my head:

- fairly solid peace, don't forget if you walk around your average town there are still a good amount of people who experienced WW2 first hand
- open markets, while meanwhile increasing consumer rights/protection, increased worker rights/protection
- way easier to travel, which leads to (using a big word) cultural exchanges between people
- less pollution (enough hard data around the internet to back this one up)
- has increased the living standard in many countries (spain, portugal, former communistic countries)
- less discrimination (in many forms)
- EU has more influence as a whole in the world than France, Germany, the UK< etc would have on their own
- ....

In rare cases it can be misdiagnosed due to the fact that there are some other actually common disorders that slightly resemble schiz. Im nto a psychologist or anything,but i did have a friend who had a dozen professionals tell him he was schiz and then found a big cir DOC who actually confirmed his case as a very common thing called "Harm OCD" which is quite different. Schiz people quite LITERALLY hear and see things that are NOT there.. They have trouble deciphering reality and the false events their brain is causing them to experience. For example, you could appear to him as a demon trying to kill him and he would hear you telling him that you are going to kill him, but obviously none of it would be happening. Also the example above is also correct, they hear voices that arent actually there such as Jesus telling them to kill 5,000 people in the civic centre because theyre sinners. The medicine for this DOES cause people to basically be zombified.. As my friend was on it before being properly diagnosed.. He literally had no emotion at all toward anything.. He was indifferent.

As far as any advice.. My advice would be to make sure you support your friend.. Talk about the issue.. Dont be afraid to talk with him about it and/or other friends.. Openly talking about it will actually help him.. Hes probably WANTING to talk because people with the illness often try to seek reassurance that theyre not going to do what the voices tell them and such... Make sure he knows hes a good person, just sick. His / her friends are the closest to them. However, also remember youre not a professional. Dont offer advice too much, just reassurance.. And as always, if/when the convo comes up, as always, DO MORE LISTENING THAN YOU DO TALKING. He will need support and reassurance that youre still going to be his friends and not abandon him due to the illness.. Sorry you guys are going through this. Its tough. Best of luck buddy.

If you refer to him as a "guy/dealer" you probably shouldn't have had him at your house.

Whatever happened to meeting somewhere?

I feel like life decision making skills are probably not Reliuna's strong point. Impression that I get, anyway.

No offense meant toward Reliuna, I obviously don't have those skills either.

Brady I know you're a watch guy, can you recommend a durable, water resistant one? Purely for swimming/outdoors activities, doesn't need to be particularly stylish. I do like some of Seiko's dive watches but I'm not sure I can justify the additional cost over something like a g-shock.

I could've sworn there was a watch thread
I would never wear a g-shock so I can't give impartial advice. I'd definitely go with a Seiko though...well built watches and cheap.
