Star Trek Restoration, Sociopathy, and your social media personality…

So, it’s a little off the purist science track, but I was struggling to come up with a theme, for today’s Science Saturday blog…

Restoration of Enterprise Model:

Myths/Investigation/articles about Psychopathy. I’ve been reading this blog lately, ( http://datingasociopath.com/ ), and have gotten curious, because there are so many labels tossed about re: mental health, and what makes a healthy mind. Who defines what is “typical” and “atypical” in the human brain?). I also just finished reading a (dated/older) book called Women and Madness (horrifying read, btw), so maybe that’s why I’ve been thinking about this lately.:

  1. I clicked on the psychopathy blog link, but it told me the connection was untrusted. Do you get that when you go?

    One of the scientists I collaborate with was working aboard the original Enterprise, a navy ship. He even got to meet Gene Roddenberry! So cool 🙂

    1. I get that from time to time when I click on a link on other people’s blogs, so I just decline and then run a virus/spyware scan because I’m just cautious like that. Okay,so I’m about to nerd out twice, once over Gene Roddenberry and once over the Navy ship. Fascinated by maritime history. How did they meet Roddenberry–were they serving together? Has your scientist made a record (written transcript or audio recording) of their experiences? Though you’re the one that should be excited, because if it was the original Enterprise, your scientist co-worker is probably immortal. 🙂 I’m guessing the nuclear one, because it was the first nuclear-powered one– possibly the WWII one, but… George Takei was a distinguished visitor on the nuclear one, apparently. 🙂

      1. Unfortunately, I don’t have all the details. It was a quick conversation we had before lunch one day that was interrupted by my supervisor. He said he was aboard the Enterprise as a Navy scientist studying shark vision and that he had met Gene Roddenberry. I went all nerd over the sharks first and never got a chance to go back to Roddenberry. I will ask him next time I see him!

      2. Sharks are cool, too! Sounds like he’s got some great “oral history” stories! 🙂 On the other topic, I wonder why that caution message pops up when you click on certain links on another’s blog entry. It’s happened to me on different sites…weird, and a little nerve-wracking… <-nursing along a old computer…*laugh*
