    So, I assume our BF shirt or some Yonex polo shirt can do?

    Damn, are we really that predictable?! Anyway, it's your choice. We don't mind the extra sceneries.

    I think BF shirt is fine. To be on the safe side, do find another one that has greater white coverage .

    I think they should change the dress code. Behind time! Even traditional IBF has abolished that rule and we can enjoy the sight of attractive colours for IBF events!

    Can we make the distance shorter through email? Otherwise, by the time I reached Vancouver, I'll be so shagged that I'll die of the torture like what you guys will be meting out to LB & Co., notwithstanding LB's buddy, cappy75's intermittent rescue attempts.

    If LB, being so young, strong and resilient, is still feeling the adverse effects of "the punishment" (at least psychologically), I wonder what will become of me? SHATTERED beyond recognition!

    Please have mercy on LB!

    As per my conversation with LB earlier, this trip will include more than just baddie tortures. Who can get away the Grouse Grind ? Other sightseeings will be arranged . . .

    Default fine line between pain and pleasure

    an analysis of LB subject.


    Excerpt from a medical article

    The nucleus accumbens is the engine of the reward response. And, in their study, the UCSF researchers determined that the reward pathway activates pain relief through the release of both opioids, a morphine-like drug produced by the body, and dopamine, a chemical messenger whose effects can be mimicked by amphetamine and cocaine, in this structure. The finding overturns the long-held assumption that the release of dopamine in the nucleus accumbens is associated only with positive experiences.

    The evolutionary value of a rush of analgesia is clear, as it could allow, for example, a badly injured individual to escape an attacker. It probably could also explain why some individuals can be injured without persistent pain. But the phenomenon may also explain why heroin addicts, in withdrawal, can experience pain or increased sensitivity to painful stimuli. "It may be that one of the reasons people stay addicted is to avoid going through this unpleasant state of withdrawal," said Gear.

    Under other conditions, it's possible that a painful stimulus, by activating the nucleus accumbens, might itself be experienced as rewarding, as appears to occur in self-injurious behaviors. Interestingly, treatment for this class of disorders, characterized by pursuit of painful experiences often for apparent thrill-seeking value, includes administration of naloxone, a drug that blocks the effects of opioids in this reward circuit.

    Default texts from one blogger on pain and pleasure

    First off, have any of you seen The Matrix? I know its just a sci-fi movie, but the 'architect' (matrix 2) stated that he tried to introduce a world with no pain, no suffering. But the progam didn't take. millions of "crops" (humans) were lost. He believed that it is human nature to feel pain, and to suffer. To define their life, humans need to suffer.

    I also believe this. For there to be joy, there also has to be an element of sadness. For pleasure, pain. Without pain, pleasure doesn't exist. Pleasure then becomes normal, and who wants normal? People seek pleasure to escape normal, and what is there to long for once unlimited pleasure is available?

    I read another study similar to this one. Uses mice the same as this one, but instead of directing movement, the scientists wanted to see if the heartbeat of the mice is controllable by the individual mouse. So, they connect the mouse's brain up to the electronics to induce pleasure. Every time the mouse's heart rate goes down, the mouse gets the shock inducing euphoria. The mouse soon realizes what is making them feel so good, so gradually they reduce their own heartrate lower and lower eventually leading to their death. This is a very scary situation. A pleasure so enveloping that they forsake their own life for another jolt. In specific controlled applications, this can be a very useful feature, but given to the public for unlimited use would be catastrophic

    Well, I have to make sure she fights even harder. Otherwise, I have little chance to survive...
