Fortunately, I'm adhering to a pretty strict, uh, drug, uh, regimen to keep my mind, you know, uh, limber.

I used to be kind of a Caren, but then I went the opposite way and I just get mellower and mellower as I age. Let it be, live and let live, all that hippie stuff.

Or maybe because of my childhood my parents were loving and caring individuals and I'm just reverting to their early teachings. Along with everything I was forced to learn at church until I finally broke free of that nonsense as a preteen.

It's as if once we stop learning, our brains begin to die.

Weird.  For professional reasons, I spent my 50s becoming fairly fluent in Spanish, and learning to develop and code games. It wasn't easy, but the analogies to previous learning were helpful.
Also, you're treading on a freshly seeded area.

Yep. When I was 20 I cared about Stanley Tookie Williams III.
Today, I say treat gang members like terrorists and send them to black sites and gitmo. Round them all up. They make jail harder for all other inmates.

Caelistis: The older I get, the more I become "Leave me the fark alone and, while you're at it, leave other people the fark alone, too."

Case in point:

When I was younger, I was very anti-trans. Now? If it makes you happy and more comfortable with yourself, you go dude*.

In fact, the world would be a much better and place if a percentage of the population would stop telling the rest of the population what to do with themselves, how to think, how to act, and how to be.

Just leave people the fark alone to pursue life, liberty, and happiness so long as the pursuit of such does not infringe upon the rights of others to do the same.

/*"Dude" is gender neutral.
//We are all "dude".
///Except Station. Station is always Station.


99% of people are decent and if I know they want to be referred to in a slightly different way its perfectly fine. People like Ezra Miller though? I will go out of my way to refer to him as him until he gets the serious mental help he needs and stops being a massive piece of shiat

Have noticed my cognition starting to slide.

Tonight I grabbed hot sauce to put on some rice. Checked the scale on the side of the bottle, which I interpreted as mild (second mildest, in fact). I was just looking for some flavour.

Instead I added 15 LARGE drops of my second-hottest sauce, at 1 million Scoville. But of course I didn't really notice it too much until I was 1/4 way through, but I'm stubborn and stupid. It was only after I'd eaten the entire plate that I bothered to double check the bottle.

Tomorrow should be fun.
