Did you ever notice that people in today's society have lost the ability to shut the fuck up?

I just gotta say, living to the age of eighty with really kick ass memory is the most amazing trip. My earliest memory is being in a bomb shelter, then I remember swimming with dolphins in Cape Town, and driving a four wheel Toyota jeep over the Andes, not to mention ranching cattle in the Bolivian Lowlands. And here I am in Portugal, damn, "Bob" has vouchsafed all I ever desired!

You even get to decide who 'you and yours' are! Maybe everybody, maybe just you, likely something in between.

The means to be less miserable are in your hands.

Go ahead!

There was a technical glitch in the bell ringing mechanism of Turku Cathedral, causing it to chime through the night.

I live quite near to the church, and ofc my first association was: "That's it! Now the plague has started _for real_!"

If you're happy
And you know it
Still we die

If you're happy

Still we die

Most politicians are terrible at maths.
This world is ruled by the Innumerati!

If this life is a dream then it's a dream without a dreamer.
If we are inside a simulation then it is one without an outside.

"tradition" is one of those great marker words.
When someone uses it in a positive way they are most likely full of shit.

Yes. I am aware of the inherent irony in that statement.

I want to become a productivity guru.
