    I don't go on that much with how bad the situation has become over the last 2 years. It's even worse than I described.

    Most of the time I keep my focus on my little household. I can help there.

    It took me half of my life to realize that I just don't experience judgement, shame, or guilt anywhere near as much as most people. I don't think that is going to be a significant factor in my choices.

    Of course that raises the "narcissist" thread concept. That thread did not resonate much with me though. Or, maybe it wouldn't if someone were narcissistic<scratches head>.

    I think I'm pretty simple. If it doesn't serve a purpose and make me better able to be a father and husband I weed it out of my garden. At 12 I realized that giving a shit about what all but a select few think is an enormous waste of energy.

    If I were to get labeled as a "bad son" I don't think I'd bother explaining any of the situation. I've found that people quick to label desperately and deeply *need* to perceive others as bad. I wouldn't take that away from someone's psyche who probably needs it.

    Besides, I could probably rock a villain mustache.

    Like the gambler said, in life you have to know when to hold them, and know when to fold them. Life doesn't wait for us to make up our fickle minds.

    I'd never heard of him. Looks great, thanks!

    After a super-stressful work day (deadline), I just poured a wee glass of malbec, and will listen to a few episodes. (It's probably too late in the day for 95% dark chocolate if I hope to sleep tonight.)

    By the way, as a technical writer, who usually has to repurpose the most obscure engineeringese into something crisp and consise (cuz no one wants to read the steenkin' documentation, including me!), I am a huge fan of simple, plain concepts.

    I cannonballed a huge bunch of water from Doc Kruse's Farm pool onto him.

    Now he's producing great videos.

    If the ONLY thing people ever got out of drezy was to view and share Doc Stillman's videos then I've done my job here.

    Completely correlated events!

    You've been to The Farm? </jealous>

    LOL!

    Doc Stillman is great at lacing in the work of Van Wijk.

    I don't think that it was a drezy cannonball splash that helped Doc Stillman get his running start.

    Still, if I'm going to be objective, it might have been!

    Ooh! I spent a small fortune on his book but haven't read it yet.

    No wait. People have pets, but cats have support staff.

    For science, you should find out if the experiment is repeatable.

    It's such a pleasure to read.

    It's one of those books where you're not even reading it as much as you're immersing yourself in it.

    That's good to hear. Of all the books I purchased recently, I had the feeling that would be the hairiest read. I'll take it out in the sun tomorrow.

    OH! There were some members that were pissed off at me when I created my drezy cannonball spash. It was informative.

    Well, I'd like to watch them, but can't get either link to work right now. Someone remind me! :rofl:
