It's also a sign of mental exertion or engagement on a task, among other things. Social psychs have used it for decades to find all sorts of things.

Pretty fucking dilated.

Seriously, guys, stop engaging him. Roughly 300 posts have been directed his way and he's still saying the same childish, inane things he said from the start. The thread was ready to die a natural death and then he came in and turned it into an embarrassing trainwreck of stupidity. I'm usually quite patient with posters like this, but not this time. It's ALL been outlined for him, and he's just got his fingers in his ears going NYA NYA NYA NYA NYALALALALALALLALALALALA.
NEXT:
Anyway, on the last page others mentioned again the "coons/punks" issue. Again, we don't have to prove wither he said A OR B. we just have to prove he DIDN'T say the racial slur. Totally different situation. It doesn't matter if he said punks, cunts, or philatelist... we just have to prove he didn't say coons. And, that's pretty easy.
Next, the thing to realize is that it is a mistake to keep attributing any type of conscious or intentional action to Sharpton OR anybody else. Psychology, human decisions, and the brain don't work that way. Sharpton can be both the asshole we all think he is AND yet believe himself concerned about black people. He's not literally sitting in his house excited that black kids get shot so he can get publicity. That being said doesn't mean that he actually isn't an attention whore out to get publicity. He can be both!
The point is that consciously or intentionally nobody is the evil calculating genius we often think/want them to be. People and their decisions are complex, and made up of many factors (some of which I've outlined on this thread) A single decision is made up of various hybrid components, some of which are intentional, others unintentional, conscious, unconscious... and many of which cannot be measured/assessed explicitly (like through an interview or survey.) There are other implicit tests from measuring reaction times to watching pupil dilation.
Also, in general the nature of a complex system (like human decisions) is such that the emerging behavior/decision canNOT be traced back to its real "motivations" or roots. You can't really know the true motivation... you can only measure/study the outcome or decision itself. So, all this trying to find what Al truly thinks/is is specious.

The Rach stamp of approval (that is a joke, but I doubt it is good enough for anyone to get).

Based on pupil dilation, I'd say he's also in about a 40% state of arousal. uhoh.gif

I don't mean to keep bumping my own posts but is my point made?

What, that Al Sharpton's life isn't worth 5 bucks in your 'hood? I believe it already.
post #1420 of 6250
If you're asking me if I would give a Lincoln to save Sharpton's life, then no
.if you're asking me if I would give a half-sawbuck to ignore his pleas for help and let Sharpton drown, well...

The LAPD killed a Hispanic Marine after he survived two tours in Iraq last year too. Why do the police hate Marines so much?

Do you notice how the summary you linked to is an incredibly slanted version of the facts as reported by the NYT--is this where you get your news?
post #1425 of 6250
Nope, saw that link on FB so I shared. I have never been to "boingboing.net" before.

There's a 41 minute audio clip, but I haven't listened to it, and probably won't.
