Actually, you really only have the checklist from the test.
From there you could score a particular number on each
one of the 20 descriptors. That's not defined in the book.

Just as I was questioning exactly where I'd land on that checklist,
there was a helpful reminder that if you think you might be
a psychopath, you're prolly not.

But I'd bet, for example, I'd score higher than Sixer. And Liver would score higher than me.

As Jon Ronson undertakes one of the journalistic escapades that make up “The Psychopath Test,” he describes renting a car and savoring its smell. This aroma “never fails to bring back happy memories of past sleuthing adventures.” The particular episode that springs to his mind is “trailing the conspiracy theorist David Icke around as he hypothesized his theory that the secret rulers of the world were giant, blood-drinking, child-sacrificing pedophile lizards that had adopted human form.”

If you thought you're the centre of the universe you'd be wrong, of course. *I* am the centre of the universe¹.

Just finished Area 51 by Annie Jacobsen.
It's a history of what little I imagine has been declassified.
Mostly, it's like a military aviation history, so that was nice, given I knew next to nothing about that subject.
But she kinda lost me in the last chapter.
Anyone else read this one?
I'm curious to see what some of you think about it.

I mean, can we indeed say that critical path meets issue off-line? If benefits of a quality-oriented challenge can be foreseen, then revolutionary goals will be assured by an enabling gating factor.

Moore is Les.

Which produced more civilizations,
yellow grass or green?


Who made poverty legal?
Who made poverty at all?


Eating a cold pork sandwich
out of greaseproof paper
as I cross to Circular Quay
looking down the last Harbour miles


the world-ships furrowed, bringing poverty,
dates this day to my midlife.


Out of the approaching then city
rise towers of two main kinds:
glass ones keyed high to catch money
and brown steeples to forgive the poor


who made poverty illegal,

and the first Jumbo jets descend
like Mates whose names you won’t recall,
going down behind the city.


This midlife white timber ferry
scatters curly Bohemian glass
one molecule thick, afloat on a
green dark of laws before poverty


and I hold aloft my greaseproof rose
for hand-to-mouth, great hoister of sails.


-- Les Murray

Then Iris came as messenger to white-armed Helen,
taking on the image of her sister-in-law,
wife of Antenor's
son, fine Helicaon.
Her name was Laodice, of all Pri
am's daughters
the most beautiful. She found Helen in her room,
weaving a large cloth, a double purple cloak,
creating pictures of the many battle scenes
between horse-taming Trojans and bronze-clad Achaeans,
wars they suffered for her sake at the hands of Ares.
Standing near by, swift-footed Iris said:

"Come here, dear girl.
Look at the amazing things going on.
Horse-taming Trojans and bronze-clad Achaeans,
men who earlier were fighting one another
in wretched war out there on the plain,
both keen for war's destruction, are sitting still.
Alexander and war-loving Menelaus
are going to fight for you with their long spears.
The man who triumphs will call you his dear wife."

With these words the goddess set in Helen's heart
sweet longing for her former husband, city, parents. Covering herself with a white shawl, she left the house, shedding tears.

Remember, now, there were hard feelings between us. Just then it made my stomach turn to think I'd ever admired him, lapped up all that brag. I said, "Well, Dick. Any qualms?" He didn't answer me. I said, "Leave them alive, and this won't be any small rap. Ten years the very least." He still didn't say anything. He was holding the knife. I asked him for it, and he gave it to me, and I said, "All right, Dick. Here goes." But I didn't mean it. I meant to call his bluff, make him argue me out of it, make him admit he was a phony and a coward. See, it was something between me and Dick. I knelt down beside Mr. Clutter, and the pain of kneeling -- I thought of that goddam dollar. Silver dollar. The shame. Disgust. And they'd told me never to come back to Kansas. But I didn't realize what I'd done till I heard the sound. Like somebody drowning. Screaming under water. I handed the knife to Dick. I said, "Finish him. You'll feel better." Dick tried -- or pretended to. But the man had the strength of ten men -- he was half out of his ropes, his hands were free. Dick panicked. Dick wanted to get the hell out of there. But I wouldn't let him go. The man would have died anyway, I know that, but I couldn't leave him like he was. I told Dick to hold the flashlight, focus it. Then I aimed the gun. The room just exploded. Went blue. Just blazed up. Jesus, I'll never understand why they didn't hear the noise twenty miles around."
Dewey's ears ring with it -- a ringing that almost deafens him to the whispery rush of Smith's soft voice. But the voice plunges on, ejecting a fusillade of sounds and images: Hickock hunting the discharged shell; hurrying, hurrying, and Kenyon's head in a cirlce of light, the murmur of muffled pleadings, then Hickock again scrambling after a used cartridge; Nancy's room, Nancy listening to boots on hardwood stairs, the creak of the steps as they climb toward her, Nancy's eyes, Nancy watching the flashlight's shine seek the target ("She said, "Oh no! Oh, please. No! No! No! No! Don't! Oh, please don't! Please!" I gave the gun to Dick. I told him I'd done all I could do. He took aim, and she turned her face to the wall"); the dark hall, the assassins hastening toward the final door. Perhaps, having heard all she had, Bonnie welcomed their swift approach.

I went out into the hall and leaned over the banister, just enough to see without being seen. She was still on the stair, now she reached the landing, and the ragbag colours of her boy’s hair, tawny streaks, strands of albino-blond and yellow, caught the hall light. It was a warm evening, nearly summer, and she wore a slim cool black dress, black sandals, a pearl choker. For all her chic thinness, she had an almost breakfast-cereal air of health, a soap and lemon cleanness, a rough pink darkening in the cheeks. Her mouth was large, her nose upturned. A pair of dark glasses blotted out her eyes. It was a face beyond childhood, yet this side of belonging to a woman. I thought her anywhere between sixteen and thirty; as it turned out, she was shy two months of her nineteenth birthday.

A dinner party, coffee, tea,
Sandwich, or supper, all may be
In their way pleasant. But to me
Not one of these deserves the praise
That welcomer of new-born days,
A breakfast, merits; ever giving
Cheerful notice we are living
Another day refreshed by sleep,
When its festival we keep.
Now although I would not slight
Those kindly words we use ‘Good night’,
Yet parting words are words of sorrow,
And may not vie with sweet ‘Good Morrow’,
With which again our friends we greet,
When in the breakfast-room we meet,
At the social table round,
Listening to the lively sound
Of those notes which never tire,
Of urn, or kettle on the fire.
Sleepy Robert never hears
Or urn, or kettle; he appears
When all have finished, one by one
Dropping off, and breakfast done.
Yet has he too his own pleasure,
His breakfast hour’s his hour of leisure;
And, left alone, he reads or muses,
Or else in idle mood he uses
To sit and watch the venturous fly,
Where the sugar’s piled high,
Clambering o’er the lumps so white,
Rocky cliffs of sweet delight.
Pretty animal doesn't trust you,
unless you prepare a great hot chocolate.

Out of the earth to rest or range
Perpetual in perpetual change,
The unknown passing through the strange.

Water and saltness held together
To tread the dust and stand the weather,
And plough the field and stretch the tether,

To pass the wine-cup and be witty,
Water the sands and build the city,
Slaughter like devils and have pity,

Be red with rage and pale with lust,
Make beauty come, make peace, make trust,
Water and saltness mixed with dust;

Drive over earth, swim under sea,
Fly in the eagle’s secrecy,
Guess where the hidden comets be;

Know all the deathy seeds that still
Queen Helen’s beauty, Caesar’s will,
And slay them even as they kill;

Fashion an altar for a rood,
Defile a continent with blood,
And watch a brother starve for food:

Love like a madman, shaking, blind,
Till self is burnt into a kind
Possession of another mind;

Brood upon beauty, till the grace
Of beauty with the holy face
Brings peace into the bitter place;

Prove in the lifeless granites, scan
The stars for hope, for guide, for plan;
Live as a woman or a man;

Fasten to lover or to friend,
Until the heart break at the end:
The break of death that cannot mend;

Then to lie useless, helpless, still,
Down in the earth, in dark, to fill
The roots of grass or daffodil.

Down in the earth, in dark, alone,
A mockery of the ghost in bone,
The strangeness, passing the unknown.

Time will go by, that outlasts clocks,
Dawn in the thorps will rouse the cocks,
Sunset be glory on the rocks:

But it, the thing, will never heed
Even the rootling from the seed
Thrusting to suck it for its need.

Since moons decay and suns decline,
How else should end this life of mine?
Water and saltness are not wine.

But in the darkest hour of night,
When even the foxes peer for sight,
The byre-cock crows; he feels the light.

So, in this water mixed with dust,
The byre-cock spirit crows from trust
That death will change because it must;

For all things change, the darkness changes,
The wandering spirits change their ranges,
The corn is gathered to the granges.

The corn is sown again, it grows;
The stars burn out, the darkness goes;
The rhythms change, they do not close.

They change, and we, who pass like foam,
Like dust blown through the streets of Rome,
Change ever, too; we have no home,

Only a beauty, only a power,
Sad in the fruit, bright in the flower,
Endlessly erring for its hour,

But gathering, as we stray, a sense
Of Life, so lovely and intense,
It lingers when we wander hence,

That those who follow feel behind
Their backs, when all before is blind,
Our joy, a rampart to the mind.

I who was full of health and gladness,
Am troubled now with great sickness,
And feebled by infirmity—
Fear of death unsettles me.

Our pleasure here is all vain glory,
This false world is transitory,
The flesh is porous, and Fate is sly—
Fear of death unsettles me.

The state of man does change and vary,
Now sound, now sick, now blithe, now sorry,
Now dancing and merry, now like to die—
Fear of death unsettles me.

No earthly state here stands less fickle,
As with the wind that waves the wicker,
So waves this world's vanity—
Fear of death unsettles me.

Unto the Death go god's estates,
Princes, lawyers, Heads of state,
Both rich and poor in all degrees—
Fear of death unsettles me.

It takes the savvy business man,
Protected by his business plan,
With only an eye for victory—
Fear of death unsettles me.

Death, that strong unmerciful tyrant,
Takes from every mother's pliant
Grasp the babe's benignity—
Fear of death unsettles me.

It takes the stockboy in the store,
It takes the captain from his tour,
And women in the flower of beauty—
Fear of death unsettles me.

It spares no lord his eloquence,
No clerk for his intelligence,
Its awful streak no man may flee—
Fear of death unsettles me.

Magicians and astronomers,
logicians and philosophers,
Discover no variety—
Fear of death unsettles me.

In medicine the most practicians,
Nurses, surgeons and physicians,
Cannot themselves give guarantee—
Fear of death unsettles me.

But best are the designer lot,
who carve their things from what is not,
Then foist them up for all to see—
Fear of death unsettles me.

From picks that better clean our teeth,
To buildings shaped like lotus leaves,
Altruists can all agree—
Fear of death unsettles me.

And since they devote all their years,
To making things that disappear,
They have no use for this frail plea—
Fear of death unsettles me.

For Death comes to them every day,
They hear their paying clients say:
But where's the profitability?
Fear of death unsettles me.

This death did petuously devour,
Gropius and his Bauhaus,
Breuer, Mies, and Loos, all three—
Fear of death unsettles me.

The scorpion spur has done upset,
Rietveld and Riemerschmid,
Singers of love and tragedy—
Fear of death unsettles me.

Relieving us of Charles and Ray,
J. J. P. and Eileen Gray,
Alas! there can be no reprieve—
Fear of death unsettles me.

Taken Wright from Taliesin,
Saarinen and Jacobsen,
Aalto, too, from Helsinki—
Fear of death unsettles me.

The Constructivists could not prevail,
Slain with a shower of mortal hail,
Even the Futurists could not flee—
Fear of death unsettles me.

It claimed the Werkstätte Viennese,
And brought De Stijl to its knees,
Truer forms will never be—
Fear of death unsettles me.

Anni Albers, reft above,
That did so lively weave in love,
So short, so quick, of shuttle she—
Fear of death unsettles me.

Corbusier and Jean Prouvé,
On ne les a pas retrouvés,
Two better fellows did no man see—
Fear of death unsettles me.

Taken Ponti of Milan,
Antoni GaudÓ the Catalan,
And Frankfurt's Schütte-Lihotzky—
Fear of death unsettles me.

And Death has slain, last of all,
Good gentle Verner, Charlotte and Paul,
Of whom we have no right to pity—
Fear of death unsettles me.

Though it has all my colleagues slain,
It will not let me settle in,
By force I must its next prey be—
Fear of death unsettles me.

Since there's no remedy for Death,
Best is we draw our every breath,
In fond ephemerality—
Fear of death unsettles me.

So follow me into the lave,
And take your time from god to grave,
Sparing not your faculties—
Fear of death unsettles me.

Unto the end we'll scrutinize,
The blooming of forsythias,
In admirable absurdity—
Fear of death unsettles me.

And since we'll devote all our years,
To making things that disappear,
We'll have no use for this frail plea:
Fear of death unsettles me.
Fear of death unsettles me.
Fear of death unsettles me.

There is grey in your hair.
Young men no longer suddenly catch their breath
When you are passing;
But perhaps some old gaffer mutters a blessing
Because it was your prayer
Recovered him upon the bed of death.
For your sole sake — that all heart's ache have known,
And given to others all heart's ache,
From meagre girlhood's putting on
Burdensome beauty — for your sole sake
Heaven has put away the stroke of her doom,
So great her portion in that peace you make
By merely walking in a room.

Your beauty can leave among us
Vague memories, nothing but memories.
A young man when the old men are done talking
Will say to an old man, "Tell me of that lady
The poet stubborn with his passion sang us
When age might well have chilled his blood."

Vague memories, nothing but memories,
But in the grave all, all, shall be renewed.
The certainty that I shall see that lady
Leaning or standing or walking
In the first loveliness of womanhood,
And with the fervour of my youthful eyes,
Has set me muttering like a fool.

You are more beautiful than any one,
And yet your body had a flaw:
Your small hands were not beautiful,
And I am afraid that you will run
And paddle to the wrist
In that mysterious, always brimming lake
Where those that have obeyed the holy law
Paddle and are perfect; leave unchanged
The hands that I have kissed
For old sake's sake.

The last stroke of midnight dies.
All day in the one chair
From dream to dream and rhyme to rhyme I have ranged
In rambling talk with an image of air:
Vague memories, nothing but memories.

Referring then to a more explicit narrative, to explain by what progressions our acquaintance, certainly innocent at first, insensibly changed nature, and ran into unplatonic lengths, as might well be expected from one of my condition of life, and above all, from that principle of electricity that scarce ever fails of producing fire when the sexes meet. I shall only her acquaint you, that as age had not subdued his tenderness for our sex, neither had it robbed him of the power of pleasing, since whatever he wanted in the bewitching charms of youth, he aton'd for, or supplemented with the advantages of experience, the sweetness of his manners, and above all, his flattering address in touching the heart, by an application to the understanding. From him it was I first learn'd, to any purpose, and not without infinite pleasure, that I had such a portion of me worth bestowing some regard on; from him I received my first essential encouragement, and instructions how to put it in that train of cultivation, which I have since pushed to the little degree of improvement you see it at; he it was, who first taught me to be sensible that the pleasures of the mind were superior to those of the body; at the same time, that they were so far from obnoxious to, or incompatible with each other, that, besides the sweetness in the variety and transition, the one serv'd to exalt and perfect the taste of the other to a degree that the senses alone can never arrive at.
Himself a rational pleasurist, as being much too wise to be asham'd of the pleasures of humanity, loved me indeed, but loved me with dignity; in a mean equally remov'd from the sourness, of forwardness, by which age is unpleasingly characteriz'd, and from that childish silly dotage that so often disgraces it, and which he himself used to turn into ridicule, and compare to an old goat affecting the frisk of a young kid.

Qui que tu sois, Vivant, passe vite parmi
L'herbe du tertre où gît ma cendre inconsolée ;
Ne foule point les fleurs de l'humble mausolée
D'où j'écoute ramper le lierre et la fourmi.

Tu t'arrêtes? Un chant de colombe a gémi.
Non ! qu'elle ne soit pas sur ma tombe immolée !
Si tu veux m'être cher, donne-lui la volée.
La vie est si douce, ah ! laisse-la vivre, ami.

Le sais-tu? Sous le myrte enguirlandant la porte,
Épouse et vierge, au seuil nuptial, je suis morte,
Si proche et déjà loin de celui que j'aimais.

Mes yeux se sont fermés à la lumière heureuse,
Et maintenant j'habite, hélas ! et pour jamais,
L'inexorable Érèbe et la Nuit Ténébreuse.

Saw part of The Hobbit on TV recently.   There's a whole lot of shit in there that Tolkien never envisioned.  Some wizards are sitting around a table, discussing another wizard.  Speak not of him, he's a foolish fellow, says one (more or less).  Then he explains that the guy has eaten too many mushrooms.  Or maybe that's in the book, but I don't remember that part.  Anyway, Terence McKenna ate too many mushrooms.  When he started describing the UFOs that are connected with mushrooms, I knew he had definitely left the shire, and not there and back again, but for good.

Fantasy, a slippery slope,a writer throws in fangs, or flying, he no longer needs to write a believable story,

with special effects we will be lucky to see a good story again, even one  already written.  Some say Tolkien pulled it off, but they ruined it.

Women had supporting roles at best, except for maybe the elf queen, who seemed to have a lot of power she barely and reluctantly brought into play.  The basic power they all carry between their legs is almost never even implied by Tolkien - that's a fantasy world for you.  I have a friend whom I rarely see; he's always somewhere else.  He's not exactly unintelligent, but he's better at breaking his knuckles on other mens' heads than waxing philosophic.  Around Christmas I saw him and mentioned that if women only knew the power that they have, men would be in trouble, but he blew it off and said, no they don't, I can always use my hand (for something other than busting heads).

On the table next to my bed are a recent biography of Aleister Crowley, which I almost finished, Citizens, supposedly the best book on the French revolution, and a book on Cajun French, neither of which I've started.  I've been playing the latest version of Assassin's Creed, Black Flag, in which you get to be a pirate.  Last night I took a break from sinking his majesty's ships to watch True Detective, and recognized some places I can drive to in a few minutes from where I'm sitting.  It's a new series on HBO with the bartender from Cheers and the stoner with the Chevelle from Dazed and Confused.  I liked it.  I think it's extremely well done.

If the person in front of me knows that I have a gun, he will hesitate to touch me, he will know that since she has a gun, she can use it too.

Makes sense to me.

The six-shot gun is easy to handle and it can hit its target accurately up to 15m [50ft]

What the gun can do and what the shooter can do is two different monkeys.  Accuracy at 50 feet with such a short-barreled pistol is no mean feat.  But most gunfights take place at seven feet or less, I've been told by someone who ought to know.

"Our research shows that a person is 12 times more likely to be shot dead if they are carrying a gun when attacked," she says.

Depends upon the person, I guess.

I got my daughter a double action revolver with no safety, it's ultralight, ultra simple, has pink hand grips and she can already hit a target at 50' with no problem, it's got a very heavy pull to the trigger.

I'm reading "The Art Of the Goldsmith and Jeweller, for the use of students and practical men" 1898, London.

It's light treatment of a broad range of various processes involved is made up for by reason of it being written by a seasoned journeyman.

I got my daughter a snubnose double-action revolver, hammerless (actually it has enough hammer to cock it, but it can't be cocked by a purse or the edge of a pocket).  It takes .38 or .357.  With the .357, the noise alone would get the best of some assailants.  Kicks like a mule with that cartridge, too.
