19th Century Journalist Locked Herself In An Asylum And Revealed The Ways Women Were Tortured | Bored Panda
Shortly after her release, she published her book that detailed all the torture she endured at the asylum.
The book quickly became a hit and resulted in an investigation by the grand jury. The jury increased the budget for the Department of Public Charities and Corrections by $850.000 and also ensured that in the future only seriously ill patients would be committed.
In her book, Nellie writes, “I have at least the satisfaction of knowing that the poor unfortunates will be the better cared for because of my work.”

Oxford’s Library Once Branded Its Sauciest Books With a Greek Letter - Atlas Obscura
FOR MORE THAN A HUNDRED years, deep in a dusty enclave of the University of Oxford’s Bodleian Libraries, there sat a restricted collection—2,100 books deemed too subversive, too toxic, too scandalous for eager minds. These books, principally concerned with sex, made up the “Phi” collection, bearing the Greek “Φ” on their spines like a mark of sin. But things are different now, and these books are proudly on display at the Bodleian, in the Story of Phi: Restricted Books exhibit that opened on November 15, 2018.

Built in 1602 and home to more than 13 million items, the Bodleian is the second-largest among British libraries behind only, well, the British Library. It’s a point of pride for the university, but keeping it all running smoothly can be “a bit of a ‘mare,” says Lloyd (Meadhbh) Houston, an Oxford graduate student who published a 2015 history of the Phi collection in the Bodleian Library Record. In 1882, head librarian E.W.B. Nicholson set out to make things more orderly, by schematizing some 7,000 different classifications. One stood out among the traditional numbers and letters used in the classification system: a lone Greek symbol chosen, most likely, as a pun on “Fie!” (As in, “Fie on you for such prurient proclivities!”).

Nick Cave Song Meanings Page | UnmaskUs
“It’s a retelling of a true relationship that I had with somebody through the story of somebody else, even if it doesn’t begin with ‘Once upon a time’. Deanna was a girl I knew when I was about eight. She lived in a trailer on the outskirts of the town with her old man who was basically this drunken, wretch of a character. Our relationship was kept a secret from him because he frequently beat her. I was just one day older than her. It was a very equal relationship we had. Anyway, we used to play truant from school and go to this little hideaway that she had fashioned under this bridge over a dry river creek. It was impossible to get to because of the briar that surrounded it. But she made this tunnel through the briar. Inside this place she had a collection like a magpie’s nest. We used to go on these day raids on the different houses around the town. We knew the people wouldn’t be in the houses and we used to eat their food, lie on their beds, and steal all sorts of stuff like letters, cutlery, clothes and money. The story is important because I’ve tried to write a lot of songs about it. One day we robbed a house and found a handgun which we took back to our little grotto. We, I should add, robbed by ourselves, separately also. One day she was caught by this guy who was in this religious instruction teacher’s house. The wife of this teacher thrashed her and the guy did something to her, but I really don’t know what it was. The next day I was woken up by my mother and had to answer all these questions from the police. Deanna had gone back to the home and shot the strange man and woman in the religious teacher’s house. How the stranger fitted into their lives was a bit of a scandal. That’s the basis for the song. I’ve tried to write about it many times but I’ve never felt able to do it justice because it sounds like some sort of fantasy or some Disneyland type of thing. Nonetheless, after that happened she was taken off to some sort of child psychiatric place. And I was taken out of (the local) high school and sent to the big smoke to a strict all boys boarding school to have a bit of sense knocked into me. I dunno.”

Finasteride vs. Minoxidil | The Best Product For Male Pattern Baldness
FINASTERIDE DOSAGE
The recommended dosage of Finasteride is 1mg per day.

You can purchase generic brand Proscar very cheaply in 5mg doses and cut the tablets into fifths. It’s not necessary to be precise; generally, one fifth of the tablet per day is fine. Otherwise, go for the 1mg branded Propecia tablets. It can be taken with or without meals.

TOP TIP
If you decide on using Proscar, be sure to purchase it from a reliable, legitimate source. Be vigilant when purchasing from online retailers. See your GP who can prescribe it to you, or their are private GP services who can provide a private prescription to your door; normally at a very affordable cost (c. less £200 for a 14 month supply).

12 Million Americans Believe Lizard People Run Our Country - The Atlantic
For example, only three conspiracies were more commonly believed by Obama supporters: that Bush intentionally misled America about Iraq's WMDs (a massive 69 percent of his supporters believe that one), that the CIA launched the crack epidemic, and that the moon landing was faked. There are two theories with equal support among Obama and Romney supporters: that aliens exist and the one about fluoridation. Everything else, from lizard people to vaccines and autism to global warming being a hoax? Believed by more Romney supporters.

No conspiracy was less commonly believed than one suggesting that the government is populated by lizard people. But that's mostly because only 2 percent of Obama supporters believe the theory while 5 percent of Romney supporters do.
