leap

*squee*

I found another one to add to my list of Tools I Should Own! Check out The Frustrator! Ostensibly it's to stop freshly-weaned calves from sucking each other's ears and willies. The lugs go into the nostrils and the screw bit gets tightened to hold it in place - then the spikes do the job of making the suckee run for the hills! Also, it makes them all look like little bovine punks.

My list of tools for the Box O Scary is coming along. It will now contain a butt gauge, a bastard file, an emasculator, a small tool, and a frustrator. Please feel free to add to the list.

Individual positivism - the Weetbix packet version: Crime is a result of some sort of personal deficiency, which should be treated instead of punished. These deficiencies include things like IQ, monobrows, mesomorphic body type or being in love with one's mother. The Italians in particular got very excited about this. Then they realised that it's really hard to 'treat' a mesomorphic body type, and that the people they'd been measuring were all folks that a) got caught and b) had been labelled as criminals using laws created by those with a vested interest in not criminalising themselves. At which point they went a bit quiet. However, it was because of them that the rehabilitation of criminals is attempted to this day.

I have a test next week. You may be subjected to more lay criminology in the next few days. University isn't very kinaesthetic and I am, so I need to spout this stuff to get it straight in my head. Bear with me.

I am.. amazed at the things I am capable of feeling. Wow.
