one last thing, before I take eight of my dead husband's morphine tablets: Many people want to BE right (and will reject a tsunami of reality to achieve that), the very BEST PEOPLE want to know IF they're right.

love how privileged many are about diet: "the only decent healthful diet is one that Harvard Medicine and PCRM recognize; traditional diets for heritage are bunk; choose hydrogenated fats over fats your great grandparents ingested, and concentrated industrial sweeteners over turbinado and honey."
If they were me and saw all the nonsmokers drop dead before 60, they'd learn diet cannot beat faulty genes and would stop proselytizing.

For all his anarchosocialism evident in films 1921- onward, does it strike you as strange that IBM and Apple Computers both have used Charlie Chaplin's Tramp character to sell computers?
There needs to be Chaplin computers for Linux, dammit.

“We can accept that others may refuse to accept our change, but we are at peace because we have done our part. Having undone the ego, the guilt has gone and love alone remains, expressing itself in whatever ways are most helpful and caring to others."

from "the Proud Boys began as an organization protesting political correctness and perceived constraints on masculinity in the United States and Canada, and grew into a group that embraced street fighting."

I know many males who do not enjoy nor partake in street fighting. Is that lack of enjoyment a cramping constraint on masculinity in the United States and Canada?
I have also never seen men cold-cock each other in friendly greeting in mixed company. I have lived in both the USA and in Canada. Are they excessively politically correct?

true or false: covering a body part signals that you do NOT welcome a person's view at that part of your body

It's completely okay to answer my via or reply on
here they are for those not of the May 21 - June 20 or constellation persuasion:

1. What's on your bedside table?
2. Five items you "can't" live without.
3. What are some words or phrases specific to where you live?
4. What are your healthiest habits?
5. What are the rewarding aspects of your job? (if you have a job quashing your will to live, I provide a bonus sixth question for you)

Bonus: what would it take for you and for me to be either better acquainted or more in contact?

"Everything is Going to Be Alright" by Derek Mahon

How should I not be glad to contemplate

the clouds clearing beyond the dormer window

and a high tide reflected on the ceiling?

There will be dying, there will be dying,

but there is no need to go into that.

The poems flow from the hand unbidden

and the hidden source is the watchful heart.

The sun rises in spite of everything

and the far cities are beautiful and bright.

I lie here in a riot of sunlight

watching the day break and the clouds flying.

Everything is going to be all right.

Strange how common it is for many people to think when one is silent or quiet it means one is gullible or cognitively challenged and not so much one learns more than listening and one is evaluating what's being said but either choosing not to comment or waiting for the right moment to comment.

pitfalls of going through a major family loss:
- energy vampires
- weirdos one-upping: "yeah well my dog has a split toenail! you know NOTHING about suffering"s
- people deciding now is the time to ask you for your psychiatric and medical treatment history so they can assess/evaluate the "friendship"

It’s movie night boys & girls - don your sweat pants & grab your pop corn, ice cream 🍦 and M&Ms and get ready to hunker down for an hour of cinematic nostalgia with Bronzie & the damgüdcyberchatter crew.

Come for the soundtrack, stay for the cinema party atmosphere of @SDF com chat & IRC.
