Resources for Help

quote [ https://www.healthyplace.com/other-info/resources/mental-health-hotline-numbers-and-referral-resources/

https://www.mentalhealth.gov/get-help/immediate-help ]

The shoutbox had a request for numbers to call. There are lots of people willing to give anyone a helping hand that needs it. And if you're feeling self destructive, even if a little, call someone before you act on it if you can. (And I know you can.)

Russians Indicted

quote [ The indictment says that the defendants allegedly, by early to mid 2016, were "supporting the presidential campaign of then-candidate Donald J. Trump." ]

Can't wait for more "No one has proof the Russians were involved... even though every intelligence agency has said they did and who cares, it doesn't matter any way."

Apple Health Data Is Being Used as Evidence in a Rape and Murder Investigation

quote [ German authorities cracked a man's iPhone and found out what he was up to. ]

Pretty insane use of iPhone Health tracker but I imagine that the investigator on the crime was -really- proud of himself for thinking it up.

Don't feed the Trolls really is good advice – here's the evidence

quote [ A new study suggests that the pleasure of getting an angry reaction is the biggest predictor of online trolling behavior – meaning that the best way to fight back is just to ignore them. ]

We've had more Trolling than usual over the last few months and wanted to just toss out a post to remind everyone Trolls aren't looking to engage or debate or have an intellectual arguments - they just want a response. Not giving it them (mod and ignore) is the best way to respond online.

The Booming Japanese Rent-a-Friend Business

quote [ You can pay an actor to impersonate your relative, spouse, coworker, or any kind of acquaintance. ]

Morin: Does she understand that you’re not her real father?

Yuichi: No, the mother hasn’t told her.

Morin: How do you think she would feel if she discovered the truth?

Yuichi: I think she would be shocked. If the client never reveals the truth, I must continue the role indefinitely. If the daughter gets married, I have to act as a father in that wedding, and then I have to be the grandfather. So, I always ask every client, “Are you prepared to sustain this lie?” It’s the most significant problem our company has.

This service should be someone's PhD in psychology or something. It's heartwarming, bonkers, sad, wtf, etc.
