I went to the public library's website to reserve some books, and there was a thumbnail that caught my eye: Martha Reads Banned Books and one of the books featured in the thumbnail was Harry fucking Potter and the god damn Sorcerer's Stone.  So I looked to see what was on the least and lo! thirty books were on the list, with a comment about each.

Apparently, the first book of the Hunger Games trilogy is "occult/satanic," and Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee just says “If there’s a possibility that something might be controversial, then why not eliminate it.”

I facepalmed so hard, you guys.

Is that One Punch Man, trix?  A guy I watch on youtube makes references to that show, constantly.

I laughed out loud for a full minute over that. :lol:

Hibiscus is super-tasty.

Good luck, Cain!



A professional cosplayer has apparently made the ballot for AZ state rep for region 26.  I hope to god I'm in region 26 so I can vote for her, because holy shit, a cosplayer would drive the conservatives UP THE WALL.  Also, her stances on a number of issues are completely reasonable and I'm on board with her platforms.  https://azpowergirl4u.com/

Anyway, hi there PD. I'm here because I'm miserable, cranky, and tired, and according to the newsfeed I'm in the perfect mood for PD.com.

Since getting my thyroid disease treated in August, my range of emotions has expended past "vague sense of dying" that defined the previous six months. I have added feeling sad, stupid, and lonely to the mix.

This too shall pass and all that, but fuck it. I feel like whuppin' on some motherfucker.


D:  Very glad you aren't dying, Cainad!  I hope the rest of it passes soon.

I'm really glad you stepped in. I can still be wooed by this kind of writing, I suppose.

This right here.

Updating.

Interesting article about Bayes and neuroscience.  I like how he presents the findings, but still comes away with questions.  The hypothesis makes sense, but that doesn't mean it's right.

I didn't read it all the way through, but I can tell you that neuroscience-wise this guy reads like a stoner rambling about quantum mechanics with a very shaky baseline comprehension of what that means.

Thanks for this, I read it and it sounded legit because I know jack all about how brains work.

My sister-in-law passed yesterday. She was born with cerebral palsy and made it to 42. I defy you to find anyone who fought harder or squeezed more out of a body, but in the end hers had nothing left at all. The Easter Seals of North Texas was (were?) a huge part of the successes in her life. Should you find yourself in a charitable mood they are good people.

Sorry to hear it, QG.  :sad:

I'm back. All my plans to go west are no more. Perhaps next year, IDK. My dad has encouraged me to write after seeing some of my stuff, so I'm going to get a simple job and do that for myself while I figure out my life. Figure I'll finish the Genesis of Eris first, but after that it's going to be "The Assault on Christmas". I may send some things to folks in PM about "the plot" and have questions before I get to that.


But it would seem someone said something about ORANGES?

.... urge to mark all as read intensifies.

ORANGES?!  Where?

NOT GONNA HAPPEN.

 :lol: 

Also, TWJ never answered, so where he heard that oranges were a thing that was happening I don't know.

It makes sense, in a way.  Sort of like the trope of how sheltered people lose their security and easy lives have meltdowns because they can't take the pressure, and people who constantly live with stress sort of shut down eventually.

My folks made me mix them a drink using two different brands of fum, for a blind taste test.  I took two shots as payment. 

I remember now.  I hate rum soooo much. I hate the taste, I hate the burn going down, the burn as it sits there, the burn in mah face.  Hate.

But the test was uccesfel and now they know that pricer rum is smoother.  WHO COULD HAVE GUESSED.  (slowly raise hand)

eta Alos hate the grumpy I get from rumj.

That was a great read, Nigel.  I was particularly fascinated that the stress hormone inhibitor offspring were possibly too sensitive to stress (at least, that's how I understood it, correct me if I'm wrong). 

Also, for no particular reason, "normal goat serum" made me laugh.
