We need to group watch this comedy channel and try and assess == this would be Gilbert Gott? watch this show.

NO REALITY TESTING IN THIS GEN

THIS MAY BE RAV GEN WHAT WERE THEY ON?

Glowsticking

 

A basic figure-eight move with both strong lights and slow lights.

Some ravers participate in one of two light-oriented dances, called glowsticking and glowstringing, also known as “lightshows”. Other types of lightshows include LED lights, flashlights and blinking strobe lights. LEDs come in various colors with different settings. The “low intensity” setting causes a strobe effect, leaving trails of dots, while “high intensity” leaves a solid line. The most common LED lights at parties are Inova micro lights or lights by LRI such as the Photon Freedom or Rav’n lights. There are many techniques used to make the lights “flow” with the music in order to “trip” the person who is receiving. The most basic lightshow move is the figure-eight followed by the circle. There are also combination methods where the lightshower holds a glowstick in each hand as well as LED lights.

Regardless, glowsticks and LEDs can be used at raves for interesting dance effects, because most raves (except some open air raves, e.g. technoparades) are held in dark or nearly dark rooms. Because rave parties are popular with people who wish to show off their dancing, glowsticks can be an ancillary material for creative freestyle dance. LED’s and glowsticks now not only show up at most every rave event, but also are becoming more prominent at many techno and electro clubs.

[edit] Drug use

In the U.S., the mainstream media and law enforcement agencies have branded the subculture as a purely drug-centric culture similar to the hippies of the 1960s. As a result, ravers have been effectively run out of business in many areas.[21] Although they continue everywhere, most notably the Winter Music Conference in Florida, most other areas have been relegated to word-of-mouth-only underground parties and nightclub events. In some parts of Europe, raves are common and mainstream, particularly Germany, where the rave scene is most popular in the world.

Groups that have addressed drug use at raves include the Electronic Music Defense and Education Fund (EMDEF), The Toronto Raver Info Project, and DanceSafe, all of which advocate harm reduction approaches. Paradoxically, drug safety literature (such as those distributed by DanceSafe) is used as evidence of condoned drug use. Other groups, such as Drug Free America Foundation, Inc., characterize raves as being rife with gang activity, rape, robbery, and drug-related deaths. [22]

In 2003, the RAVE Act essentially ended raves in the US by associating them to MDMA, and to child abduction (AMBER Alert).

In 2005, Antonio Maria Costa, Executive Director of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, advocated drug testing on highways as a countermeasure against drug use at raves.[23]

Reality testing is the process of objectively distinguishing betweeen the internal world of thoughts and feelings and the external world.

In mental disorders, where this process is limited, a person is said to lack insight and the further breakdown of the distinction between external and internal world is a characteristic of psychosis. For example hallucinations and delusions are taken as signs of a failure of reality testing

The term was first introduced by Freud in Formulations on the Two Principles of Mental Functioning.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Drugs shaped like Snoopy, Transformers and President Barack Obama’s head have recently shown up on the streets, adding to a trend that worries police and health experts.

Colorful Ecstasy pills started showing up last year shaped as Homer and Bart Simpson, Ninja Turtles and other characters. As more of the pills that look like vitamins or candy go out locally and nationwide, they put children at great risk, police and experts said.

MDMA (3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine, also known as ecstasy) is a semisynthetic member of the amphetamine class of psychoactive drugs. It is considered unusual for its tendency to produce a sense of intimacy with others and diminished feelings of fear and anxiety. These effects have led some to suggest it might have therapeutic benefits to some individuals. Before it was made a controlled substance, MDMA, marketed as Empathy, was used to aid psychotherapy, often couples therapy, and to help treat clinical depression, the results of which are poorly documented. Studies have also recently been initiated to examine the therapeutic potential of MDMA for post-traumatic stress disorder and anxiety associated with cancer.

MDMA is criminalized in most countries in the world under a UN agreement,[3] and its possession, manufacture, or sale may result in criminal prosecution, although some limited exceptions exist for scientific and medical research. MDMA is one of the most widely used illicit drugs in the world[4] and is taken in a variety of contexts far removed from its roots in psychotherapeutic settings. It is commonly associated with the rave culture and its related genres of music.

There have been debates within science, health care, and drug policy circles about the risks of MDMA, specifically the possibility of neurotoxic damage to the central nervous system. Regulatory authorities in several locations around the world have approved studies administering MDMA to humans to examine either its therapeutic potential or, more commonly, its basic effects.[5]

Effects of chronic use

Some further studies have also shown that this damage causes increased rates of depression and anxiety, even after quitting the drug.[33][34] In addition to this, some studies have indicated that MDMA may cause long-term memory[35] and cognition impairment.[36] Many factors, including total lifetime MDMA consumption, the duration of abstinence between uses, the environment of use, poly-drug use/abuse, quality of mental health, various lifestyle choices, and predispositions to develop clinical depression and other disorders may contribute to various possible health consequences. MDMA use has been occasionally associated with liver damage,[37] excessive wear of teeth,[38] and (very rarely) Hallucinogen persisting perception disorder.[39]
