[quote:ArmchairObserver:MV85NjMyNjNfMzQ5MTY0NTdfNzA2QzA3MjY=] [quote:Bea Nameless:MV85NjMyNjNfMzQ5MTYyMjhfQUIxRkYwQzI=] No, Scooby Doo is slang for solving a mystery. If I'm guilty of anything, it's hanging out with people much younger than me and taking up their quirks of language. Cold, meaning on the wrong track. Like you're getting warmer, warmer. We're better than ingrained programming. And while I haven't tried directly, I'll admit it was sheer cowardice that prevented it. I've attempted it indirectly too many times to count. I just don't talk about my self-destructive times out loud, but there have been many, many, too many. Not lately, but I've been there. But no, I don't want to talk about it. I'm not ashamed, but I'm not proud. [/quote] Most of the people that I talk to on a regular basis are young people, too, and they have not used "scooby doo" as a slang. Maybe it's a regional thing. It's still really not cool to use even cartoon based slang on this particular subject. Most of the time you either state that nothing was done to you or that they didn't get to you or something along those lines. I'm someone that HAS had things happen to them and you know damn well that I have some pretty creepy evidence of it. Most days, I'm sitting here reflecting on the reality that either people will a. think I'm nuts or b. run the hell away from me if I explain even a fraction of what I have found in my own personal life in this "sccoby do mystery". Then to have it relegated to a cheesy cartoon by someone who I had considered a friend and that I thought I could talk about these things with. Nice, Bea. You should probably get that bit of young slang. And in so far as you're dictating whether somebody is close to anything in regards to ingrained programming, I don't think you're necessarily a good judge of that. Like I said above, most of the time, you think that they did nothing to you or didn't affect you. If your experience/outcome was so different, perhaps it's not because of anything particular to you but a difference in program? In either case, you're about as good of a judge as to whether someone has shed ingrained programming as I or anybody else on this thread is. Honestly, the only person that I've seen that actually knew something about the program was the Ludens nut. And that's kind of sad. lol [/quote]
Were you ever removed, many times, from your regular class for "testing"?
Were you shown a series of high speed images on a television, not once, but many times?
Was the school psychologist selectively interested in you?
