    Discussing Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder [OCD]...

    Is it possible to display more obsessive rather than compulsive symptoms and have a sort of "milder" run of the disease?

    And, if not, is there a type of mental disorder where a person "absorbs" habits or ideas from books, movies, other people, passing conversation and begins to do the same thing or obsess over it?

    From experience with my little sister, yes it is possible to display more obsessive traits than compulsive.

    And there is a certain name for one if the disease in the Autism spectrum where some kids will develop a habit for copying things they hear, see, or even read about resulting in them acting differently and trying to be like what it was they hear/saw/read.

    I hope that helped. It might not make much sense. But living with a little sister who is autistic and many other things you notice these things.

    Could anybody just give me a list of random rockstars, that are still alive,
    that were heroin addicts at some point in their careers.

    Also was Neil Young a heroin addict?
    I remember reading that somewhere but I can't remember. =\

    Okay, there's a movie that I saw a glimpse of on TV one time when I was sick, and I just caught two lines of dialogue which I thought were so powerful that they stuck in my mind. But now, I can't figure out what the movie was, even googling the quote.
    So I was wondering if anyone had seen it...

    This man comes home from a war (WWI, maybe) and he's really depressed, and commits suicide. I think a lot of the movie is flashbacks?
    The quote is two men talking about his death:
    "What kind of man shootshimself in the stomach?"
    "The kind aiming for his heart - whose arms just don't work anymore."


    Umm. Ring any bells? :shifty

    I don't think a gay couple can divorce in a country that does not accept gay marriage.

    What part of the body bleeds the fastest?

    Like, if wounded there, the highest chance of dying?

    I think it's the neck. I know Muslims slaughter animals by cutting their jugular vein and Japanese women used to kill themselves by cutting that vein too.
    Also in that area there's the carotid artery.
    :shifty I'm not 100% sure though.

    yeah, hang someone upside down and slice their jugular and carotid arteries. pretty much all their blood will pour out of them in a few seconds.

    there are some pretty big veins on the insides of the legs too, and obviously, the wrists.

    Somebody's veins can collapse from heroin right?
    And like if they do what does it exactly do to the person when it happens?

    And I remember reading about these things called Nephilims in
    a RP but I don't know if it was made up for the RP or not.
    If anybody could get me any info on them that'd be awesome. =]

    but anything anywhere near the face bleeds more. Not particularly the fastest.

    Yeah, it's the jugular vein.
    That's why you're pretty much dead if you arrive at a hospital with a torn jugular. It's pretty much 100% fatal. I've only heard of one case where someone survived an accident involving it.
