fragment of a “Smiggles” post that may be significant

Edit: Thank you to Dingo and Ashley in the comments. The full post is:

What is “chemical imbalance” even supposed to mean? Why don’t hunter-gatherers need antidepressants? I swear, a psychiatrist could take a perfectly fine chimpanzee away from its jungle, confine it in captivity, and when the chimp gets depressed, and when the chimp gets depressed, they would say, “This chimpanzee has a chemical imbalance. What? A correlation between enculturation and depression? But culture brings us meaning and beauty. Get out of my way, caveman-wannabe. I need to prescribe this chimp some Xanax”.

Original post:

It seems like most of the relevant “Smiggles” posts have been uncovered by now. However, there is one that I found a record of, but it is frustratingly incomplete. In it, the Sandy Hook shooter (riffing once again on the theme of apes and primitive societies) says:

…unfortunately, google’s record of that post ends there, and it wasn’t one of the pages that was cached in full. You can see the above quotation in the google description of the page by running this search.

The post was originally at URL:

http://www.shockedbeyondbelief.com/discuss/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=6503&start=400

…which should be the 8th page of the long “You know what I hate!?!?” thread (the thread title itself is a reference to a journal entry by one of the Columbine killers). Clicking the link will only take you to a login page for the forum, though.

From what I gather from several former members of the forum, even they are not able to access old threads if they are from the “miscellaneous” section of the forum, which this one is. And anyway, Lanza probably erased it before he went on his rampage.

So unfortunately, that’s all we got. I post it only because it sounded like he was about to elaborate on the same argument he made when he called AnarchyRadio, while including a rejection of psychiatry (Lanza underwent several psychiatric evaluations during his life, and rejected medication after apparently taking it only once).

If anyone can recover the whole post, definitely share.
