    Obsessive compulsive Disorder and Coronavirus

    ďMost people have occasional obsessive thoughts or compulsive behaviors. In an obsessive-compulsive disorder, however, these symptoms generally last more than an hour each day and interfere with daily life.Ē

    Until earlier this year, repeatedly washing oneís ...
  2. Alcohol and Equal Rights for All

    by , 03-20-2019 at 09:41 AM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    Humans have been consuming alcohol for at least as long as there have been humans, and there are good reasons to believe that the desire for more alcohol was the driving force behind the development of agriculture. Humans probably got their first tastes of alcohol from fallen fruit that naturally fermented. There's no way to tell for sure, but there are signs of ale, sort of, having been made from seeds about twenty-five thousand years ago, and it is generally accepted that agriculture developed ...
  3. Regarding Stupidity and Homelessness

    A few days ago I started a thoughtful and detailed blog on the problem of homelessness in the U.S.A., its causes, and suggestions for correcting the problem.

It is sad that the custom of consuming alcoholic beverages with meals is dying out, but thatís what the people who think that they ...

  5. Curing Obesity

    by , 11-10-2013 at 03:39 PM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    Note: I had written a blog on how to solve the Middle East Crisis, but that was too controversial, so the following is being posted instead.

    I have gotten the impression that there is a great deal of concern with the number of people who are obese; although the people who are concerned with the level of obesity tend not to be obese, and indeed there are obese people who are completely unconcerned with the situation, but the causes and cure for obesity are relativity simple ...
