These hauntingly beautiful photographs are taken by Nicolas Bruno.

Nicolas turns his nightmares into art. Nicolas has been suffering from sleep paralysis since he was 15, a condition that causes him to wake up in the middle of the night unable to move. He has turned his suffering into art and actually uses his photographs as a way of dealing with the sleep paralysis. 

You can see more of his AWESOME work here. [x]

Anonymous asked: should vaccination be mandatory? i am honestly interested in hearing your logic behind why/why not, and not attempting to troll.

Certainly, thanks for the question.

Nothing should be mandatory. If we start with the premise that you own your own body, or at least that you are the best one to take care of your own body, then how can anyone else make the decision of what kind of medical procedures you should go through?

Another argument might be starting with the premise of the legal maxim “We are all equal before the law.” If we start there, then that means you can’t do anything to me that I can’t lawfully do to you. If I punch you, I will be punished. If you punch me, I will be punished. If I force you to get a vaccination against your will, won’t I also be punished? So if a bureaucrat forces me to get a vaccination against my will, what should happen to them, if the law is just?

Aside from that, it’s rather impractical, for several reasons to allow politicians power like this. Politicians aren’t normally scientists, doctors, or statisticians. So even if they do look at unbiased data in detail before voting on a bill, there is no guarantee nor any likelihood that they will interpret it correctly, nor is there any guarantee of genuine interest of their constituents. The person with the most incentive to research and make the correct decision is, and can only ever be, you.

"Although comparing women and men who are in fact comparable is not easy to do, when you look at women and men who are similar on multiple factors, the sex differential in pay shrinks drastically and gets close to the vanishing point. In some categories, women earn more than men with the same range of characteristics.

If the 77 percent statistic was for real, employers would be paying 30 percent more than they had to, every time they hired a man to do a job that a woman could do just as well. Would employers be such fools with their own money? If you think employers don’t care about paying 30 percent more than they have to, just go ask your boss for a 30 percent raise!"

How a polite, sensible person makes a request:
Use “do you mind” to make a question. “Do you mind not smoking here?”

How a sociopath makes a request:
Present your preferences as a declarative authoritative statement. “Smoking is prohibited.”
Follow it up with a threat. “Fines apply.”
