    how does an exploration of the human psyche delve into politics?

    I mean anything can but that is on the posters that tries to tie it in.

    I've watch this a couple of times. I like it.

    Twitter is a sickness, IMHO. I don't mean 'sickness' like the young people use the word.

    Yep. I dropped my facebook account. But hey, it's just my opinion. The Twitter flash mobs have the potential to get out of control.

    The answer would be a long and very interesting discussion. You might consider BF Skinner/John Dewey, the ideology/ies that they embraced and the Reece Committee Investigations as they relate to public schooling for one example and then go from there.... Political Correctness, and the driving ideology behind it vs. Factual Correctness and the foundation behind it.... You could go back further and research Claude Henri de Rouvroy, Hegel, Rousseau, Feuerbach/Freud which then gets into Marx/Engles and proliferates into the peoples and groups, like the Fabians Society, that embrace and propagate a conglomerate of philosophies, like Political Correctness, and schema, like Multiculturalism, that are basically predicated upon the aforementioned....

    Now the answer, as I digress, will get the thread closed and/or worse.... my apologies...

    The redoubtable Ms Perry reminds me somewhat of the 1973 model cars-You remember, the 1st ones to have the "5-MPHcrashable front bumpers"{.?!?"...There was a movie, "The Seven-Ups
    , & a car that featured prominently in the flick, a '73 Pontiac Gran Ville. It was the "Get-Away" car, they drove it all over Gotham City.. & basically tore it to pieces. But the mighty. mighty 5-MPH bumpers saved the poor Grand Am's Front End... "That movie's chase scene, IMHO ranked right up there w/"Bullitt",,& "Gone in 60 Seconds"....

    I work in research, in the Neuroscience field. Twitter, unfortunately, is quite pervasive there. The big "names," whether what they have to tweet is really all that important, is rabidly followed and recycled by the masses. IMHO, twitter is not much better in academia. It is, like eljr said, just a tool for communication, albeit a stunted one.

    Heck Yeah.

    We have a thread titled "Favorite Movie Scenes" in the general off-topic forum. We covered most of the great chase scenes.

    If The Seven-Ups ain't in there, I'll add it.
