The gun control debate rises anew in the wake of another mass shooting, but mental health treatment should receive the same critical attention and maybe more.
We're past the point of reversing our nation's gun culture, but it's not too late to better handle the psychological problems often at the root of such senseless violence. We need to ask some serious questions about how we treat the mentally ill, how we pay for that care and how we change a dismissive attitude toward a problem that can be solved. We can start with our elected officials. Do something about it!
It really is a numbers game. Play the numbers, roll with the punches. It’s a roller coaster, ups and downs, baby. "When you’re up, it’s never as good as it seems and when you’re down it seems like you’ll never get up again." You will.
"Good things come to those that wait". Not this time. Good things come to those that act. The 3-second rule works on many levels.
In general, it is bad form to apologize. For anything. You can admit you were wrong, you can offer to make things right, but don’t apologize.
There is no such thing as overconfidence. There is such a thing as taking yourself too seriously, however.
Do not ask permission to do or say anything. Never ask a woman if you can kiss them, hug them, hold them, etc.
Agreeable is boring.
Jealousy is a "let’s just be friends" best friend.
. Never ask questions that are designed to find out what she thinks of you.
A fireplace is a worthwhile investment.
You must lead. Even if you don’t know where you’re going. Make it an adventure. Take her hand and lead.
Life isn’t fair and dating is a part of life. Dating, dealing with women, isn’t and isn’t supposed to be fair. Get over it.
A woman will test you and keep on testing you. Don’t get too comfortable. Stay on your toes.

Brooke Taylor, of St Louis, Missouri, spent three months as an in-patient at Castlewood Treatment Centre to treat an eating disorder in 2010. She claims she was brainwashed there. She said: 'I like to use the word "bully" when I refer to individuals that work there. They make you believe that they have all the answers.'A lot of demons were put in my head.'
Ms Taylor is the third woman to sue Castlewood.Lisa Nasseff and Leslie Thompson, both from Minnesota, took separate legal action against the centre and psychologist Mark Schwartz, claiming they had false memories planted during sessions to treat eating disorders.
Ms Taylor claims Castlewood staff hypnotised her and that she was over-medicated.
A previous lawsuit filed by another inpatient claimed Castlewood psychologist Mark Schwartz brainwashed her into believing she was a member of a satanic cult.
According to her lawsuit, staff caused her 'to become increasingly isolated from her family by leading her to believe that a family member had been and would continue to sexually abuse her and force her to engage in horrific acts of abuse'. A spokesman for Castlewood told STLToday.com that the lawsuit claims are 'spurious'.
A statement said: 'This lawsuit simply piggybacks on publicity generated by earlier false and outrageous allegations. We will defend this case vigorously, confident that the facts will underscore Castlewood's professionalism and excellence in patient care.'
Ms Nasseff's lawsuit, filed last year, claimed her psychologist Mark Schwartz brainwashed her into believing she was a member of a satanic cult.She sued Schwartz and Castlewood for $1million for implanting false memories in her mind under hypnosis.
Ms Nasseff allegedly believed she had multiple personalities and had participated in satanic acts, including the ritualistic eating of babies.
She spent 15 months at the centre, starting in 2007 where she received treatment for anorexia, according to the complaint.

"Most of my major disappointments have turned out to be blessings in disguise. So whenever anything bad does happen to me, I kind of sit back and feel, well, if I give this enough time, it'll turn out that it was good, so I shant worry about it too much."
Tom Hardy seemed like a strange choice to some of us when we heard he was to play the masked villain Bane. Sure, he had just completed work on Inception with Christopher Nolan so the two had become good friends based on that, but what else could it be? Prior toThe Dark Knight Rises and Inception, Hardy wasn't known very well outside of film fanatic circles. The one thing that he was really known for was a little film called Bronson.
In Bronson, Hardy played notorious British criminal Michael Gordon Peterson (nicknamed Charles Bronson by his promoter) who was well known as being “Britain's Most Violent Inmate.” During the course of pre-production for the film, Hardy put on 42 pounds of muscle for the role, and it shows when you see the cover. Aren't those the most terrifying arm muscles you've ever seen? Seriously, he looks like Donkey Kong. Within the film, we see just how bonkers and savage Hardy can be as the character, he's a total nutter.
When Hardy was cast as Bane he only assumed that it was because of his muscled up performance inBronson. He thought that Nolan had seen the film and was so impressed with both his acting skills and physical demeanor that he had to have him as Bane in the new Batman film. When he asked Chris this, he was shocked to find out that Nolan had never seen Bronson and originally cast him as Bane because of his work in Guy Richie's film RocknRolla. Keep reading this article
