  • Well, if you're one of those people, that can also turn into a great benefit — because now you have an effective medicine for especially hard times. A medicine that works better for you than for most others. Yes there's the risk of alcoholism involved, but if you can manage that you got a pretty sweet deal — a nice pick-me-up ready at any time.

  • You should post videos on the neurophysiology of meaning. You outlined it all very well in your last TVO Mpa os Meaning Lecture, the 13 part series. You also have a great lecture on Authenticity, from 2014 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zooE5GE81TU&list=PL22J3VaeABQCfQy9Yg2y8fi5cI8HYUUct&index=9 I think you can chop this up into parts.

  • I know how it sounds but i tried alcohol in the past ,i thought it would help me to ease my problems but i didn't like it so much for easing the problems at least so i stopped and now i only drink occasionally or socially even better.
    I said :" damned i failed on that too becoming an alcoholic "!

  • Well, buckos, looks like we got some research to this weekend.

    Don't forget that repeat results are more trustworthy.

  • I am sober since 6 years and when I met Jordan he told me buy the lobster yoga pants! Israel has good identity politics

  • That guy is a total sell out. Double standards for Jews and selling everything. Why does he need soooo much money??

  • Dr Peterson is very intelligent but a pair of big tits would raise my heat rate more than 8 bpm in 10 minutes. 8 bpm isn’t much.

  • I love the log lectures but these 2 min clips are great.
    JBP is a fantastic prof of psychology, first of all. The rest of his discourse is great too, but it is all anchored in the science of pyschology.
    Thanks !
