new laptop, but...

A new one, well yes, and to cut a long story short it's not new, it's used, but good.  used to belong to a businessman, even though it's high spec.  so it works great.

Good processor, graphics card, 8gb ram, the only drawback is the sound, one of those cinematic sound set ups, the result being it's not perfect sound, or not like my other laptop, and i'll get used to it, already added most programs I want.

After getting it, I realised it needed a password, the guy who owned it had no reset it, so he ended up emailing me, after i asked him, the password.  lucky for him I didn't raid his email, since windows 8.1 was set up with his email account.  thankfully i'm not a scambag, but suspect it would have been his work email anyway, or some old one.

Anyway, I got this gaming laptop,even though not high end gaming laptop, for a small amount compared to buying a new one, kind of obvious.

Seems like he left evidence of his porn collection, he deleted the files, but failed to delete the names of the folders that can still be found, such as ones with names that suggest they were porn.  LOL.

oh well, it's worked, and I hope this laptop with be good for future editing of videos for youtube.

Islamophobia or just a honest way of expressing doubts in regards to Islam?

Doubters, Critics, Sceptics, it's fine, as long as your not just an ignorant clown who expresses hatred then so what?!  sound criticism of any belief, any person alive or dead, any so-called holy figure or book, or anything is OK, but as reasoned people it should be a rational response, as with much of the work of Christopher Hitchens.  Yet, what we find with some people on the left of politics is this idea of labelling anyone who critiques Islam a bigot, closet racist, etc.  Surely these people need to learn the difference between the informed intellectuals and the irrational fear-mongers, or else face ridicles on a vast stale!  Whether your atheistic or not is not the issue, the concern is that as a critic you are lightly to fall into this camps, one that is able to learn, able to progress, and the other which is dogmatic, the dogmatists include religious fanatics and the fuellers of race hatred.  I don't know about you, but I believe that dogma is the great foe of progress, I consider Christopher Hitchens(1949-2011) to be one who was not the enemy of civilisation.  I don't think Islam is our wholesale foe, if anything we have many foes within the Muslim world, and most of them hate each others guts about as much as they take offence to liberal western culture.  Moderate Muslims do exist, but most are traditionalist, which means they are fundamentalists, of a kind, and yet, are not probable to raise a sword to fight for the extremists, so rather than judging all Muslims as the same, like some people do, we should be educated upon the matter, and clear, as we question the values of this religion.  Islam doesn't deserve privileged more than any other belief, ad if possible the separation of Church and State should be promoted, the fairness of governance by impartial, honourable people.  And, we should not prevent Muslims from expressing themselves within our society, as long as this expression fits within the laws and guidelines of our society.

I am sociopath? Traits of a sociopath?

I don't consider myself a sociopath, but then again, who would?!  I guess the real issue is are your personality traits fitting, by definition, to such traits, it's worth noting if these traits are true to you, they are not in lightly to be the extreme, and we all have traits we may think are somewhat like that of the stereotype sociopath.   

the basic list.
• Lack of empathy
• Cold, calculating nature
• Shallow emotions
• Narcissism
• Grandiose self image
• Charming
• High IQ
• Manipulative
• Secretive
• Sexually deviant
• Sensitive to criticism
• Paranoid
• Despotic/Authoritarian
• Lawfulness
• Low tolerance for boredom
• Impulsive behaviour
• Compulsive lying
• 'In childhood sociopaths will likely pulling the wings off of flies etc, bed wetting, and pyromania.

note that most of these are so common in small amounts that we could all be mildly exhibiting such traits.  don't become a pseudo-psychologist.

Psychic testing project is delayed due to new job.

simply put i have a new job, and money is tight right now, so getting psychics to read that old box which I will claim as haunted is delayed, but I will return to the topic very soon. 

I am nothing and no one?

A youtuber, Felinoid, came up with this, or at least the usage of it that I'm aware of, he may have hijacked or borrowed it, but it's the humble stance for a youtube vlogger. 

How best to say something to the effect of 'I am not trying to own you or fuel my ego with this opinion'?  Maybe, just maybe, we need a nice thing to say to put people at rest, then, when all that is done, we can start making clear points on a topic without baggage. 

Offence, well it will forever come up, those who wish to take offence will regardless of the meekness of the vlogger responding to a point they wish to discuss. 

To say 'I am nothing' is not to literal, it's a humble statement, to say 'and no one' continues the narrative, the point equals I am not here for myself, not for my goals, I am here to express a point from my own limited perspective.  Maybe we should all have such honourable states of mind to our interactions, cutting free baggage, and the true discussions can take place.
