Mike Pelletier: Lucy Skull
“In 2011 I was invited to create a piece for an exhibition called “Ctrl-Z” curated by 3d artistEric Van Straaten. This was a group exhibition of artworks created by various 3d printing processes.
The model of the skull was generated from a friend’s dental tomography scan. The form of the object was created by creating an array of copies of the skull, where each successive copy of the skull is scaled, rotated, and moved. The skull starts at life size at the front and ends up rotated 180 degrees and two times larger than life at the back.”

Psychopathic Behavior and Juvenile Delinquency:
Born Bad; Early Warning Signs of the Child Psychopath
In Robert Hare’s book Without Conscience: The Disturbing World of the Psychopath Among Us, he cites the real-life example of twin girls, Ariel and Alice. Both came from the same environment and had the same opportunities. But the parents noticed “something different” early on with one of the twins, Alice. While Ariel got a went on to law school and got her degree and a good job, Alice was in and out of trouble with the law, got involved in drugs, and repeatedly asked her parents for help and bail money.
Are Psychopaths Born or is Bad Behavior the Result of Environment?
There are differing opinions on whether children are born with psychopathic tendencies or whether the syndrome is brought about by social influences and early experience. Psychologists who believe social and early experiences are the cause often use the term sociopath to describe such youths. Other experts, such as Robert D. Hare, who feel psychological, biological and genetic causes are the underlying factors are more likely to use the term psychopath.
Opinions also differ on treatment of the psychopath, whether treatment should fall to the mental health profession or the correctional system.
The Juvenile Psychopath: Cruelty Toward Other Children and Siblings
Many psychopaths show signs of disturbing behavior early in life. This can be exhibited as cruelty toward siblings and other children or extreme cruelty toward animals. Because psychopaths feel no empathy toward others, they may inflict abuse on their siblings. In extreme cases, like the little girl in The Bad Seed, they may seek ways to coldly erase any competition for affection by smothering an infant in its crib or other acts of violence.
Juvenile Psychopathy and Cruelty Toward Animals
Cruelty toward animals is one of the most obvious signs of emotional unbalance in children and young adults. The psychopath either treats the cruelty as an ordinary event or derives some pleasure from animal torture.
Jeffery Dahmer showed such cruelty at a young age by impaling the head of a dog and staking cats to trees.
Early Warning Signs of Psychopathic Behavior
There are a number of symptoms that can suggest mental illness. However it should be understood isolated traits, such as lying or petty theft, can be caused by many other factors. A cluster of related symptoms must be present before a diagnosis can be made of any psychopathic mental disorder, and a diagnosis must be provided by a qualified expert.
Below is a list of signs that may indicate serious behavioral problems in a child or young adult:
- repetitive, casual lying
- apparent indifference to the feelings, expectations or pain of others
- defiance of parents, teachers and rules
- continually in trouble and unresponsive to threats of punishment
- petty theft
- persistent aggression, bullying and fighting
- hurting or killing animals
- early experimentation with sex
- vandalism and setting fire

Dr. Robert Hare (via criminalprofiler) —
My roommate just opened the door, stuck his head into the room, waited until we made eye contact, and said, very seriously, “I just want someone to honestly say to me, ‘By Grabthar’s hammer, by the suns of Warvan, you shall be avenged!’ “
He then ducked out with a straight face.
The packing is going.
I would just like to point out that the beginning and end of Spirited Away creep me out in the most delicious way possible. I’ve always been a fan of fairy tales, and not just the Grimm and Anderson stuff, almost all my life. Like the honestly faerie court stories.
Themes you see in those reflect strongly in this movie, and comparing them side by side just makes it that much more stark.
Often times you hear that if you get sucked into the fairy realm, you shouldn’t eat their food. It gives them power over you. More often than not, heroes finally escape the fairy realm after what they perceive to be a very short time (a night or a week)…
…only to find that seasons or years have passed.
‘Hey, it’s all dusty in here. Is this someone’s idea of a joke?’
CRAPPING SHIT I WHY HAVE I NEVER NOTICED THIS
This always freaked me out a little as a kid. Like the OP, I couldn’t help but wonder how long REALLY passed. I always pretended it was something like a week but… Judging by that moss, I can’t say for sure.
A week? Try much MUCH /MUCH/ longer. The plants are a good indicator but a better one is the statue. We’re seeing it from the same angle in each shot. Look in the first one before she enters, it’s not NEW but you can tell what it is.
Now look at the second frame. It’s so eroded it’s just a dull, flat stone.
That thing is solid stone, that must have taken up to, if not more than, a DECADE to wear down that much.
Not to mention that there are new trees next to the car. Just remember how long it actually takes for trees to grow real quick.
Evidence is suggesting they were in there for maybe around 20-30 years.
1. Visionary Killer: This killer feels compelled to kill because of ‘voices’ in their heads or visions that tell them to do so. For example, Herbert Williams Mullin claimed to hear voices that told him a disastrous earthquake was imminent, but he could save California through murder. Mullin killed thirteen people in an effort to ‘save California’. It was later determined that Mullin suffered from paranoid schizophrenia.
2. Mission Oriented Killer: These individuals feel that it is their duty or mission to kill certain kinds of people. For example, Ted Kaczynski, commonly refered to as the Unabomber, started a bombing campaign in an effort to save the environment, which he felt was being destroyed around him. He targeted places that were creating ‘high technology’ such as universities and airlines. Kaczynski’s bombs killed three people and injured twenty-three.
3. Power-Control Killers: These killers seek complete control over their victims. Seuxal activity is almost always involved in these cases. John Wayne Gacy,“The Clown Killer”, would fall into this category. Gacy murdered and raped 33 teenage boys, burying 26 of them in the crawl space of his home.
4. Hedonistic Serial Killers: This is the most common type of serial killer. These individuals kill for the thrill and enjoyment they get from the act of killing. There are three subtypes of hedonistic killers:
- Hedonistic comfort killers: Killing victims provides the killer with some sort of comfort; usually money. Dorthea Puente ran a boarding house in California where she killed her elderly tenants and buried them in the backyard so she could claim their social insurance checks.
- Hedonistic lust killers: The serial sexual predator; fantasy plays a large role and their satisfaction depends on the amount of torture and mutilation they inflict on their victims. Jeffrey Dahmer is one of the best-known hedonistic lust killers. He searched for a beautiful, submissive, and eternal lover. Dahmer killed 17 men and boys in this search for his perfect lover; his murders involved rape, torture, dismemberment, necrophilia, and cannibalism (so that a part of his victims would stay with him forever).
- Hedonistic thrill killers: Their primary thrill is to create fear and death. The act is usually not sexual and is not drawn out over period of time, they are solely interested in the kill. Hedonistic thrill killers often work in teams. The notorious “Zodiac Killer” claimed to be responsible for 37 murders but investigators have only been able to pinpoint 7 victims, two of which survived. The Zodiac killer sent taunting letters to the police, and was never caught or identified.
