The party went horribly. Goddamn it, Christina was so upset 'cause the Wormwood Party Store didn't even bother calling to let her know that they wouldn't get the boa there in time.

Actually it was better in that regard than I expected it to be: it was WAY over-the-top. I expected the same from Shoot Em Up but was somewhat disappointed. Although I admit Shoot Em Up had many ridiculous concepts, I left Ninja Assassin feeling more satisfied.

I saw this movie some days ago, and had the same expectations as above. In fact,

when one of the Ninja's got hit by a bullet, I joked to my mate "That is officially the worst Ninja in the history of mankind."

But yeah, if you take that movie too literally and/or seriously, it IS a goddamn flop.

As it turns out my dad has been trying to quit smoking but each time he's failed.
He's going to try hypnotherapy this time. I'm not sure how to feel about this. The skeptic inside me doesn't want him to waste money but the son inside me wants him to try it.

I don't know, I'm not sure hypnotherapy is as disreputable as some other alternative treatments (such as what's-it-called, with the diluting and silly "water memory"). It's more a psychological technique, from what I understand, which is very little.

My mother and father tried hypnotherapy (among many other things) to quit smoking back in 1995. It didn't help with their smoking; however, for some reason, my mother stopped being a chocoholic, much to her chagrin.

Homeopathy. Some people staged a homeopathy overdose outside Boots once to protest them stocking it. They all chugged about twelve bottles of the pills each and then stood aruond being fine for an hour or so. Was rather excellent.

I've seen hypnosis stage shows. The participants were always a dozen-ish people I knew quite well, selected from the audience, who did some quite ridiculous things and then claimed no memory at all of the events. For them to be faking it, a large proportion of my class would have to be far better liars than I thought or than they appear. So even as a skeptic, I'm willing to trust that hypnosis as a state of mind that can be manipulated exists. I realize this doesn't testify as to its therapeutical effectiveness, but I would be willing to give hypnotherapy for purely mental problems a chance. (Of course, there's a chemical element to addiction as well, so no guarantees?)

My mum did Acupuncture to quit smoking, it worked for exactly 4 weeks, when she'd saved the cost of the treatment.

I'm trying to remember that cartoon where there's like, this walrus, right? And there's a carpenter, too. The walrus has an umbrella and there is a cigar on the floor, and he uses the tip of the umbrella to stab the cigar, and then he puffs on it, whilst it's still speared by the umbrella

I'm imagining that scene now but with a cigarette and an acupuncture needle.

Is it true acupuncture needles can be confused with knitting needles? Or sharpened broom-handles?

FT: Although it could be true, I find it odd how you have to believe certain alternative medicines/therapy to work for them to work at all. Besides placebo effect, surely it doesn't matter what belief you have of it; shouldn't it just... work?

Well possibly, but that could be a statistical anomaly. Or it could simply be due to a large number of the test subjects knowing homeopathy is a load of bollocks, so they didn't get the placebo effect from it.

I've seen hypnotist live shows too. They're pretty legitimate, it's just some people confuse what a hypnotist does. You can't be hypnotized if you don't want to be, you have to be pretty open to it to begin with for it to work. The first part of his act was a ton of people on stage trying various exercises that would show whether or not they could be hypnotized. He explained it as something that they could stop at any time, but because they felt fine they just didn't want to.

I don't see how it could help quit smoking though. Although there is a lot of habit involved in quitting, just as much as the nicotine. My mom's been trying to quit for awhile, and now she's been smoke free for a little over a month. Even though she doesn't really have cravings anymore, the habit of smoking is still hard to break after doing it for a few decades.

I went to one of those shows once and went on stage. I came really close to getting hypnotized. I tried my best to keep from thinking about it and to keep my mind open. He took us through a few exercises. One exercise was to hold our arms straight out in front of us and he told us our arms were permanently straight. Then to try and bend them. It was a really odd sensation that I was trying my hardest to bend my arm, but it just wouldn't happen. After a couple exercises like that, though, my mind was wandering too much and I just came out of it. So the group of us that he couldn't sustain got back off the stage. It was an interesting experience, though.

FT: The Internet is some pretty fast stuff. The shortest theoretical ping time to your geographical antipode is due to speed of light constraints something like 10ms. Yet I can find servers that give me a ping of 200 ms on the other side of the world (actually, my geographical antipode is in the middle of the pacific, but say 70% of the distance away). That's pretty damn fast!
