In psychology, compensation is a strategy whereby one covers up, consciously or unconsciously, weaknesses, frustrations, desires, or feelings of inadequacy or incompetence in one life area through the gratification or drive towards excellence in another area. Compensation can cover up either real or imagined deficiencies and personal or physical inferiority. Positive compensations may help one to overcome one's difficulties. On the other hand, negative compensations do not, which results in a reinforced feeling of inferiority. There are two kinds of negative compensation: Overcompensation, characterized by a superiority goal, leads to striving for power, dominance, and self-esteem. The other is undercompensation, which includes a demand for help, leads to a lack of courage and a fear for life.
So the folks over at 4chan put together this reenactment of the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman encounter, which to be fair, deserves it's inclusion as one of the most gruesome Mortal Kombat fatalities ever.
Okay, photo help: what type of ship is this? I'm torn between some small cruise ship, and an oceangoing research vessel.
I know what you're thinking -- there are no cheerleaders in Major League Baseball -- but you're wrong. Baseball teams have cheerleaders. They may not wear the skimpy outfits that the cheerleaders where in the NFL, NBA, or even the NHL; they may not always perform choreographed numbers; and they may not call them cheerleaders. But those girls who stand on the dugouts, blowing whistles and throwing shirt to fans? They're cheerleaders. So today we're going to take a look at the best cheerleading squads baseball has to offer.
I've had these NG tubes placed in me without drinking the water while playing the "unconscious patient" in training for demonstration purposes. Yaisiin Bey, better known as Mos Def in the music world (and some movies) demonstrates the "horrors" of getting an NG tube placed in him. Some say he was acting like a little girl with all his antics and crying. Not me, I would never say that. It would disrespect little girls everywhere. Bret

Your Friday afternoon movie: "Home, where I learned the truth about despair, as will you. There's a reason why this prison is the worst hell on earth... Hope. Every man who has ventured here over the centuries has looked up to the light and imagined climbing to freedom. So easy... So simple...

So, as I terrorize Gotham, I will feed its people hope to poison their souls. I will let them believe they can survive so that you can watch them clamoring over each other to "stay in the sun." You can watch me torture an entire city and when you have truly understood the depth of your failure, we will fulfill Ra's al Ghul's destiny... We will destroy Gotham and then, when it is done and Gotham is ashes, then you have my permission to die."
