According to her blog, Scatty lives in northern Germany, and homeschools. She has been following the plight of Melissa Amina Busekros, and she parodied the psychiatric report on Melissa by making her own diagnosis of the German educational outlook.
Green fields and open horizons, Northern Germany, 17 February 2007, My diagnosis of the German education authorities
1. Clinical psychiatric syndromes
2. Outlined developmental disturbances of human-rights related talents
3. Results of intelligence
4. Physical symptoms
5. Current abnormal psychosocial circumstances
6. Global judment of psychosocial adjustment
Concerning the antique torture devices used to punish unacceptable behavior Scatty mentions under “Current abnormal psychosocial circumstances,” the masks she mentions can still be seen at the Criminal Museum in Rothenburg ob der Tauber, although they aren’t shown online. That style of thinking was also evidenced in early America by the use of ducking stools, and stocks, and riding people out of town on a rail.
