Animal and pet bodies are generally disposed of via a process that essentially liquifies the flesh in lye. I know that there was some amount of push several years ago to expand the service to human remains.

There's a company in Europe that was trying to push the idea of "planting" a person's body by using minimal preservation chemistry and no coffin, and putting a sapling above the body.

I'm not Tibetan, but even I can appreciate the symbology of their Sky Burials, wherein a body is sliced and left exposed to the elements, and is swiftly reclaimed by vultures.

However, there is one outstanding option for OP: Donating his body to science! Organ donors are lauded, as they well should be, but there's a pressing need for bodies for research purposes, particularly bodies of younger folk or children. The research gained through body donation can save hundreds, if not thousands, of lives, for decades after it's donated. Bodies have been used to research car crash impact effects--dummies are fine, but there really is no substitute for strapping a body into a car and launching it into a wall to see how it breaks (or doesn't!)

I'd strongly encourage anyone interested in alternative body disposal methods to read Stiff, by Mary Roach. It is far and away my favorite non-fiction book--hilarious, respectful, inquisitive, and educational!

Recommendation here for Stephanie Calmenson's excellent book May I Pet Your Dog?:The How-to Guide for Kids Meeting Dogs (and Dogs Meeting Kids). It's a great little picture-book style book by an established author that really lays out the protocol in a way kids and dog-naive parents can understand.

I believe it can be useful in the context of measuring arousal for studies for researchers looking into human sexuality. See also: the vaginal photoplethysmograph. But the researchers take the results with a grain of salt because they know that physical arousal and how aroused/interested a person actually feels are not always correlated.

For a highly entertaining and yet very informative look at the world of sex research I recommend Bonk by Mary Roach.

Restraints in nearly all cases are inhumane and unnecessary with proper precautions. A sealed room without a balcony for an unrestrained patient is perfectly safe for everyone involved. If you’re curious about this issue, there’s been an entire book written about the issue of restraints and forced treatment.

> I learned that the original "patient zero" (the origin of the term!) was exonerated of the label when we found out that HIV had been active in the US since at least the 1960's, and it's estimated that the disease jumped from chimps to humans as early as the 1910's.

You should read The Origins of AIDS, by Dr. Jacques Pepin. It is generally believed that there may have been instances of HIV/AIDS in the US in the mid 1960's, but the vast majority of (and only traceable) infections are likely the result of one individual who got HIV in Haiti and brought it to the US around 1969. There is a case from Norway from 1966, and some well documented cases in the Congo as early as 1959. Genetic studies seem to indicate that the "ancestor" of HIV could date as far back as 1910 though, as you said.

Nah I could see you just needing to set up like five to ten of those bear spray ones, then have those tiny little black hose ones that spray a super fine mist about to water your garden. You could then have it set to go off by a trigger, motion censor (I think this one could prove problematic for local wildlife), or maybe even have an app for it.

When I read the bit about the pepper spray rigged to the sprinklers, it really got me thinking on how you would do it effectively. Where you would position them and if you could set them off in relay.

That's why I think the multiple big can of bear spray like this or this but they only seem to have a 5 second blast. So having a bank of about 20 or 30, with 3 on each sprinkler system, meaning you can send more 5 second bursts through it.

As I'm in Australia and pepper spray and most definitely bear spray is illegal (without a licence I think) I'd have to find some of that fart spray instead. I could get some Raspeberry Pi's, servo motors and with my 3D printer could cobble something together.

Realistically if he had access to a 3D printer (even without you could managed with duct-tape), and could learn how to do some basic programming, you could knock something up in a month or two of weekends and some after work time.

EDIT: Just found this awesomely perfect for the purpose sprinkler.

And this one for those neighborhood kids who you don't like. Or this, or maybe if you have some Bronies this.

Nope, because HIV can take six months to show up on a test.

As for why no monogamy exception: In the early years of the AIDS epidemic, plenty of men that were monogamous had unfaithful partners and thus they ended up with AIDS despite no risky sexual behavior themselves.

In that case, get Martin Ehrengraf, the only defense lawyer that works on commission.

(He's the original "dirty lawyer" fiction that I'm aware of. He proves his clients' innocence by framing someone else for the crimes.)

If you really need your fix, might I suggest Understanding Tree Law: A Handbook for Practioners. Its basically the Kama Sutra of Tree Law.

I confessed: "I killed" and the judge threw the book at me.

u/Jules_Noctambule · 6 pointsr/bestoflegaladvice

i can buy that the right people knew and others went along with it out of ignorance or fear of reprisal. The Getty has a long history of fraud, theft, and other deceptive activities - this book is a good read about some of it, if you're into that sort of thing!

Women who are choked by their domestic partners run a high risk of being murdered by those partners:

  • Strangulation is a significant predictor for future lethal violence
  • If your partner has strangled you in the past, your risk of being killed by them is 10 times higher
  • Strangulation is one of the most lethal forms of domestic violence: unconsciousness may occur within seconds and death within minutes.

    Even if you don't die you can suffer brain damage, that may not be apparent for days or weeks.

    An excellent book about domestic abuse is Why Does He Do That? by Lundy Bancroft https://www.amazon.com/Why-Does-He-That-Controlling/dp/0425191656. My only knock on the book is that he feels that only males abuse (or women in lesbian relationships). I have known battered men. It happens. You can find online copies too if you know someone who needs one.

    We see shit like this over and over in /r/relationships. Women who are so brainwashed and gaslighted by the abuser into thinking that they did something to deserve the abuse. The only thing they've done wrong is stay in the relationship. But the abuser has systematically isolated them from friends, family, finances and any social support networks. The more dependent the abuser can make the victim the more they abuse them.
