My best trick to do this is to visualize a camera in the room with me, like some director is putting this scene into a movie. Try it out right now, visualize what you'd look like if this moment was a scene in a TV show. Maybe I get a precious glimpse of how I appear to others. I get a different perspective on my automatic reactions, because I'm not inside of them.

I've been studying body image disorders lately. What begins as healthy self awareness can lead to all kinds of problems when you cannot turn it off any more. Having to think all the time how you present yourself to the outside can be debilitating.

I get you are not advocating for that, but do realize the same problem can be approached from multiple directions.

If it's me against you, you got me outnumbered since for every me there's many of you.

Me stays pretty stable in comparison to you who changes identities on a whim like a schizophrenic actor locked in wardrobe.

That's quite special, I think I'd rather be you.

A gush of wind and a noisy thump betrayed the door letting in yet another poor soul. In the doorway stands a boy, maybe 11 to 12 of age, unkempt black hair and round glasses only barely holding together with some tape. He's wearing red and yellow striped scarf and a ridiculous looking black robe, both stained and scruffy. In his forehead there's a very visible scar shaped like runic "s".

Excuse me, I was looking for the platform 9 3/4 and got terribly lost. Do you mind if I use the bathroom?

Oh come on, you call that a gun?

Only one of his books I've gotten around to read was Lies Inc. I don't  know how it compares to other stuff, but it sure left me confused. The book was filled with what can only described as virtual plots. Story shows you some elements, and your head goes "oh I bet these would fit together logically like this in a regular story" and then the story just drops them since it already told that story in your head and zooms off into whole another unpredicted trajectory.

This new future frightens me.

Hopefully things turn to better soon!

Wouldn't the pragmatic approach be giving your soldiers beacons saying "don't kill me", and shooting everything else that moves.

until an enemy manages to emulate, hijack, or suppress the beacon.

Then you do a switcheroo and shoot everything with the beacon.

At least it couldn't be tricked with a dino suit.

If one of those health problems explodes, and I have no doubt it will, and the doctors say “oh, tranny freak” and decide I deserve to die, I’m gone forever.

If you ever find yourself in a time and place where doctors at a hospital say "oh, tranny freak" and decide you deserve to die, the world you live in has far bigger problems than electing Joe Biden can solve.

Fuck you.

Electing Joe Biden solves one massive problem.

In my striptease show I tastefully remove pieces of my clothing one at the time by realizing they are arbitrary concept holding little to no connection to an underlying reality.

Evil and good are like wheel and other car parts. They are part of the whole, but it's still important to know which way the whole is going.

Buddha was a self centered skinhead who starved to death under a tree. Her ideas weren't dangerous enough to be smothered in their wake.

How do you take in information? How do you process it? Bias is an integral part of your brain functioning. It took a jackhammer to remove mine and I've wanted it back ever since.

I heard the really really smart people get contradicting biases, not to cancel them out, but to see what holds water. Why wouldn't you want to hold water?

I've actually been thinking about the idea of different timelines recently, and how certain actions or "timeline deaths" can just launch you into another timeline.

There's a thought experiment based on Schrodinger's Cat called Quantum Suicide, in which a scientist places themself in the position of the cat. From the boxed scientist's point of view, the mechanism of death never goes off, because each time it does, a new timeline is created in which it didn't.

So that's the reason why every time I jump off a building I only get seriously injured.

It's spelled kilju and it's actually really good for retoxing your guts.
