      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Love versus Fear driven politics. No, that doesn't sound familiar. No, not at all.

Fear really is the mind killer.

 

BTW, there was no statistical difference in the actual decision making - just in which parts of the brain lit up during the process.

Perhaps if people used the anterior cingulate cortex, we would be much better off. I suppose the status-quo of either using baseless emotion or anger/fear is here to stay; as is evidenced by the lengthy circle jerks I see on my now quarterly forays into this website. :wave:
