Your current signature is interesting. I've found that if I need to see something from another person's perspective it helps to imitate them in some manner. Apparently others feel the same way. Also its just plain fun!
And I don't just think the nature/nuture opinion of ours is limted to crime.
I'd say it functioned in general too, such as with intelligence, fer xamples.
I see the mind as a sponge, it can only give out what is absorbed into it, BUT, there are always those with larger or smaller pores, that absorb more or less,or absorb only certain things in relation to past absorption or original shape.
So an 'intelligent sponge' if you like.
My first day was only bad because of my own fault.
I missed the first 'intro' day because I was at the dentists and my mother took the call without letting me know I'd missed it.
I missed the second day because my mother took another call, and noted down the wrong time .XD So I had to 'manually' enrol myself. Sorting each individual stage myself instead of getting help like the ones who where on time.i.e-register form,registering online,acquiring a timetable and student pass as well as a learners pack.Then on to the office to confirm I was me.Each thing required a journey across the massive bloody place with nothing but the last sections advice and a room number.
IT WAS A LITTLE *STRESSY*.
It's not often I connect with someone so well, and I just thought if you had msn, we could talk more often.
-I don't get on a computer much,( I'm actually using my dsi right now) or onto the forum everyday,but my phone has a quite pathetic msn application, meaning we could have spoken and made discussion that way.
I guess I was just trying to make things more convenient for myself.
Just being selfish.:(
I respect your decision,but I blame you for being so intriguing.:P
First day was dreadful, I feel much better now thats it's over. Yeah, or Criminology and criminal law to be exact! Good to find a kindred soul of deviance obssession,-sends mild happy vibes-Thats the best I've got I'm afraid.I'm in the middle...Nature is highly important in certain cases,mental illness, but overall nuture is the true killer variable, and I believe the most perfect nuture can overcome the worst of nature.oh, if you have msn add me:} firstname.lastname@example.org
A criminal is led to a crime because of how he has developed into his current personality, and that is largely through the envrioment and how he responded to it.
i.e. A frequent thief may have been forced to steal occassionally as a child, or could have experienced and enviroment which encouraged stealing. i.e father figure, or any example of a person who was a good survivor.
And if anyone can be born into the 'wrong' enviroment and/or circumstance, whats to stop ANYONE being a cirminal?
(First of all, I'm really sorry about the long wait, I've been busy. You know, fighting to get into uni, having my internetz stolen and suffering prolonged depression bouts kind of busy.-snuggles-
Feel better yet?
-Stabs mid snuggle-
Yes....As Oscar wilde told me:
'Only the shallow know themselves"
I've always assumed he also meant 'And the deep should constantly delve" between the lines.
I shall be honest.
Criminals are merely victims of chance.
Be that chance which twisted their inner workings before birth, and gave them a mind that does not fit the social jigsaw, or chance that forced their normally docile and conventional hand to foul deed.
I suppose there is something fascinating about the inner tickings of the mind,and the cogs that go bad.
For me, it was various things.
The insights the classes granted me, my novel I've been working on, which explores various unique forms of madness and it'd criminal application in some cases...
It has been said of me, in various tenses and with a great deal of variety in the subtlety employed, that I have a deviant/criminal/insane mind.
And I'm inclined to agree.
Though,I seem to be entirely recessive in it.
I have violent thoughts,(doesn't everyone) make frequent and disturbing references to death, and pay great detail to unimportant and sometimes sickening things.
So perhaps I seek to undrstand what I could have been?
Also, I watched batman begins, and fell in love with the scare-crow and his criminal psycholgy.:)
But I'm guessing grade 11 is equivalent to my form 5...
(we have seven years primary, five years (forms)secondary, then an optional extra two.... I'm assuming you took whatever was equivalent to that extra two years, which would make you ether eighteen or ninteen, depending on your age at the start of you school life.
