I was given something from the VIP bathroom.

I don't think it wasn't a key.

While the MacNN baño is no doubt immaculate, I've always found it ironic the top five funky bathrooms I've been in were ladies rooms.

Been here almost 17 years, always posted from the same user name, feel like I've been reasonably active, still only have just over 3,200 posts.

Long way to go.

Instead of Clinically Insane, it should say Argumentative.

I consider myself to be pretty damn argumentative, however I tend to lose interest quicker than some. Arguing around here generally has the same effect as screaming at a wall.

Donald Trump is clinically insane, as he has a severe case of Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Does that count?

You'll accept the diagnosis of a shrink who's never met the person in question? Take a step back and just think for a moment.

Where were you when people were posting the remote diagnoses of Hillary's lethal cough?

Don't forget the brain damage diagnoses based on reflections in her glasses.
The new Mac Pro has up to 30 MB of cache inside the processor itself. That's more than the HD in my first Mac. Somehow I'm still running out of space.

If this was the diagnosis by Dr. Drew, that was accurate. She whacked her head so hard her vision stopped working properly. That's brain damage.

Of course, one can have brain damage without suffering cognitive impairment, and Drew said it's clear the incident didn't cause any lasting effect in that regard.

His point wasn't "Hillary is unfit to be President because she's brain damaged", it was "this is a severe enough trauma I expect to see it addressed in a supposedly comprehensive medical vetting".

People weren't particularly interested in this nuance, so it got buried, but it's a much different situation than doing psychoanalysis.

As for her coughing, I'm sorry... that clip was ****ing insane. By the time I was going "o god, o god, o god, please make this stop" I had only made it halfway through.

It even made me scared Trump could somehow win. Imagine that.

Psychological diagnoses are typically made by listening to and observing the behaviour of the patient. Granted its not ideal, but there is plenty of data to study on Trump so I see no reason certain diagnoses couldn't be made.
I have plenty of more important things to do, if only I could bring myself to do them....

You don't diagnose people from afar, and that counts for Hillary Clinton as well as Donald Trump, especially when people connect it to supposed unfitness for office. We all know that Trump is a narcissist in the colloquial sense, and to want to up the ante by supposedly making a medical diagnosis of a mental illness (where personal interaction and cooperation from the person you are diagnosing is even more important) is not right and cannot be taken seriously.
I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it.

Or when she pulled a Weekend at Bernies' and was drug by members of the secret service, unconscious, across a parking lot with her feet dragging the ground. Oh wait...

That people may misuse information is a poor reason for it to be unavailable.

If someone wants to give me an example where those types of glasses are worn for reasons other than brain damage, I shall withdraw the claim. Until that point, the assertion stands.
