Sam's in this?

Doc@Oh I have no doubt there's going to be a sacrifice or two of some kind along the way, but RPing is just like doing business. It's best if you can get something to satisfy both parties but if not...You've gotta be prepared for unpleasantness and be ready to pass it off onto someone else as quickly as possible..

No, I just lurk.

And I'm currently curious to discover the secrets behind this "lobotomy" everyone keeps mentioning. And why it is so popular all of a sudden.

Basically you cut out part of someone's brain, the general use is to make them slow and docile I believe.

Of course, if you know what you're doing, there can be other uses.

Uses that a certain doctor may wish to use on a certain character.

Hmm, now I wonder why some Runners in the Slender Man community seem keen to use this method...

Like, how is that supposed to cure people of mental diseases? :/

True very true.

Lobotomy has always been popular ;D

Ever read/watched 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest'? It's damn depressing but damn is it good.
sam4books wrote:Like, how is that supposed to cure people of mental diseases? :/
It's not. They used it in insane asylums as a way of 'curing' people,but really it was just a method of control so that it was easy to take care of them. Often given to people who were considered a 'lost cause'. Actually on second thoughts, it depends.

O___O WHAT.

I saw that it was mentioned in something I read while looking up the procedure.

I may look it up when I get the chance. It may give me ideas.

Oh don't worry, that won't happen so long as he Just. Be. Haves. Got it? if he becomes difficult then he's either going to have to be drugged, or maybe a more permanent solution would be enacted.

Sam@I'm not sure on all of it, but basically it robs you of life, turning someone wild and ecstatic into something of a husk.

For some people, say insane killers or people who are so mad that they risk even harming themselves, this could be a better option but...well, it cuts you awareness, your responsiveness and makes you seem kinda zombish, or so I gather, you may want to check this out yourself.

It's a pretty nasty procedure at best and results in serious brain damage or death at worse.

It was quite popular actually a few decades back.

Huh. Doesn't seem pleasant to me.

Particularly when you live with someone who is reduced to a husk :/

...I'm not sure how to respond to that...but I agree that it doesn't sound pleasant. It's fallen out of popular use though now that psychology's taken a leap or two forward.

Yes DO watch it. One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest is brilliant. I watched the movie when we were looking at mental institutes in Sociology class. I feel like watching it again now.
What really gets to you is that the way they treat the patients actually used to happen.

But I can't say for certain that Chame will behave. He kinda would like to escape, y'know?

It's a horrific way of 'curing' people. Really terrible.

I suppose, it stopped my mom from going crazy at least.

But now she can hardly remember anything at all, like nothing.

Also, watching the movie now, remarkably it's on Youtube.

Let's see how this goes.

Well, at least whatever way she was cured, isn't entirely permanent. If a new way of solving...whatever it is shows up, then she can take it.

Lobotomies are forever.

That's true.

According to my dad she was kind of out of it in the head when he first met her.

TV seems to work for her so it seems. Unfortunately the babies tend to be brats and try to steal the TV from her and boss her around, damn kids don't listen to me either.

So it may take a few years though...maybe.

Either way, she might have to relearn everything all over again.
