    Hi RileyJ

    I reckon the stuff described by the shrink - isn't limited to women. But she's plugging a book. And she's a friend of someone who posts on the dark side - so we better be nice.

    Personally - I want to read this book
    The audio for this one is very funny.

    and this is a bunch of bookworms talking about it.

    Hi 'Hyacinth',

    Thank you for your comment ! I really do not understand why you persist and continue with calling 'the other forum' – ‘the dark side’ - you are a member there – so what is the problem? It would be a lot better for this forum - if you didn't even acknowledge it ! Just put it down to 'something you read on another forum' ?

    Anyway, I love reading books – but for me – I like reading mystery/murder/mayhem/spy/alien/horror types!
    Stereotypy ones really don't do it for me! Just like the 'real life television shows' !

    I spent enough time in my previous life - having to put up with learning about psychology and all the rest of the 'guff' – without now having to be buying books about it!

    Each to their own !

    So will the following story in the link below make a difference ?

    Just couldn’t resist this link !

    Hi RileyJ

    I call that other forum "The dark side" for two reasons.

    1. Forum rule says we're not supposed to be plugging rival forums, and most forums don't like when other forums talk about them disparagingly - tho I use it for all refs to that.

    2. The dark side - has been known to rip newbies to shreds - especially if a newbie comes on and says something like "I just bought a cockapoo from a pet shop and now I've want to breed it, help me.

    Hopefully their mods will delete such a post before the rest of the members tell that person just exactly what they think of that post.

    3. The dark side do tend to go round being mean to posters who are a bit odd in their style of posting. And some of them are very anti anything scientific related - ie some of them are quite phobic about scientific study. Especially scientific study on animal welfare. These few (I hope) think they know more than the scientists do because of their history. Eg humans have been whipping horses for years in races, but it doesn't make it the right thing to do - or make the horse go faster. If someone conducts a scientific study - and measures what happens when a horse is whipped and when it isn't .... with new tech like slow mo video cameras - it's possible to see what the true effect is, not the emotional effect (humans get more excited).

    Alarming new research suggests 25 per cent of people aged between 16 and 34 spend more than 21 hours online every day, with 18 hours the average time spent online a day.
    WTF - don't these people sleep?
