Snippits from around the web:

Psychologists fear US manual will widen mental illness diagnosis: Hundreds of thousands of people will be labelled mentally ill because of behaviour most people would consider normal, if a new edition of what has been termed the psychiatrists’ diagnostic bible goes ahead, experts are warning.

Next thing you know they will be sending the mentally ill to re-education camps.

Study: Distrust of Government a Mental Disorder: A study in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry has concluded that distrust of the government is a treatable mental disorder. Known as “AGP” or “anti-government phobia,” the study claims: “…that unfounded fear of government is a recognizable mental illness, closely related to paranoid schizophrenia. Anti-Government Phobia (AGP) differs from most mental illnesses, however, in that it is highly infectious and has an acute onset. Symptoms include extreme suspiciousness, conspiracy-mongering, delusional thought patterns, staunch ‘us against them’ mentality, withdrawal from reality, and often religious fanaticism”

New Jersey—based Gun For Hire, which provides tactical training for law enforcement and civilians, teaches that the best way to stop a home invasion is one step at a time. It could help keep you out of a cemetery or jail, prticularly if you have a gun.

ABC accuracy: Some entertaining exaggeration and misrepresentation from photoshoppers who’ve been having fun with Julia Gillard’s Australia Day rescue.

The Himalayas and nearby peaks have lost no ice in past 10 years, study show: The discovery has stunned scientists, who had believed that around 50bn tonnes of meltwater were being shed each year and not being replaced by new snowfall. The study is the first to survey all the world’s icecaps and glaciers and was made possible by the use of satellite data.
