AH.
so.

Sorry Von C

in addition to everything else Mrs Marvel has been unable to see a dentist for a year
and thus her teeth have gone to HELL. has numerous cavities, an abcess that required an extraction,
and now will need 3 months healing, an implant post drill into the bone, 3 more months healing, and a
new artificial tooth on that post. None of this  covered under the fake dental plan I was able to get.

gonna be several thousands of dollars out of pocket.

she is on antibiotics and in pain RIGHT NOW; she AND I are are agonizing over the possibilities
of insane health care limits due to the politicized PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS and the pitiful health care
that we could get that DOES NOT INCLUDE DENTAL OR VISION ( thanks to our politicians playing games
with us citizens - and this will probably get flagged as a POLITICAL STATEMENT)


So I came here , brass goggles, my interweb community
 looking for... something positive...

I posted a particularly carefully crafted and thoughtfully worded short missive that is posted in the
        DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY thread.
with great care to try to make no actual insults or political whateverthe fuck.


and instead of reading the actual message ( *I* am less DEPRESSED) with no hidden meaning
(I am almost ALWAYS distressed with SOMETHING about the "current administration" whoever it is!)

Deimos takes it as a personal affrontary against her "free speech right" to proselytize
and uses it to "open the door" ( sorry, that only works in legal courtroom cross-examinations)
to respond with a more inflamatory statement.

of course.

and that is why "no politics or religion"

Sorry you feel dissed and stressed Deimos.
Seriously.
I don't do "irony". Especially on forums. written words are too easily misunderstood
and there is the tendency to read "ulterior meaning" and go off the deep end.
which i think is what happened.
or not.

But you know what, I just don;t fucking care anymore.

The divisiveness and misunderstandings just keep continuing.

I suppose it is MY OWN FAULT for expecting a little sympathy and a little support,
perhaps just a "it will get better" or "this too shall pass" .

Instead I get "YOUR STEPPING ON MY RIGHTS! SIT DOWN AND SHUT UP"

Thanks very much Deimos.
whether it was your intent , or not,

NOW I AM MORE DEPRESSED.and feeling really fucking sorry for myself.


I am *literally* sick to my stomach over all this shit.
Eating a bottle of tums a week.
And trying to be upbeat and happy for everyone else, while I see
literal death and destruction, pandemic plagues, riots, and "bad juju"
(don't dare even hint at a possible poliical or religious message) rising all over the world.
and the emporers new clothes.
I don't do "the emprorers new clothes".

best to
just.
fucking.
leave.


To Prof. Darwin Prætorius von Corax :  Sorry. seriously.
        best intentions gang oft aglay
   Good luck with taking on Brass Goggles.
   Don't let it get to you, like it has me.

To Siliconous Skumins: I pray to God that your cat Dibnah is safe & well and that you find him soon.
   If not and worst case, then I grieve with you, and as I type this I am shedding tears over your
   possible loss. Rainbow Bridge and all.
   (comment probably not allowed under "no religion")

To J Wilhelm: Good luck on your various projects.
   Continue to Believe in Facts and Science.
        Continue to PROMOTE Facts and Science over bullshit and whatever.
   Keep on Keeping on!
   and I pray to God for your safety and health,
        stay safe,
   In spite of the latest Danish Study, (which BTW stated " no conclusion")
   I wish to God people would actually read a study all the way through,
   and quit inserting their fucking agenda into it. but if it's not on a youtube or
   their prefered spoonfed media, they won't.

   As I know that you know, if you wear a proper, well fitting mask, wash hands, don't touch your eyes & face, treat surfaces
   as contaminated, Follow contamination protocols ( washing & disinfecting, etc) you should be well.
   ( see Shadow of the Tower as a positive example)
        Those who claim "but I wore a mask but got it" are shining examples of
           "you did not follow protocols ALL THE TIME "

   Via Con Dios!
   (comment probably not allowed under "no religion")

to  Shadow of the Tower: Welcome back!
        seriously.
        You are a good man, and a shining example to others.

to Diemos:  Sorry I offended you. Seriously
         Try WITH ALL YOUR HEART to see the other side. Walk a mile in their mocassins and all.

to all my other friends here:
-    TAKE GOOD CARE of your animals!
-    TAKE CARE OF your friends .
-    Do not lie , cheat, or steal; Do not tolerate those who do
-    STAY POSITIVE
-   ALWAYS DO THE RIGHT THING (in your heart you already know what that is)
-   IF POSSIBLE ADOPT AN ANIMAL

-   wear a proper fitting mask, wash your hands, stay away from sick people, don't lick handrails,
-   eat your vegetables, stay hydrated. Don't get drunk . Italians and Japanese have proven Drunks Get COvid.
                  (probably get tagged as something bad)

-   There *IS* EVIL loose in the world. Don't let it win.
                (probably get tagged as something bad)

-   If you feel attacked and/or disrespected, walk away. it's either anger lashing out or a misunderstanding
-   It's Not Worth killing someone or getting killed over.

-   Kevlar is your friend

If somebody doesn;t like this fucking post,
then do what you gotta do.

but remember the "nuremburg defense"
Always Do The right Thing


love you all

everybody breathe deep and realize that we all can and do make ourselves feel like people are attacking us or trying to offend us. It's human nature to ascribe intent to result we experience.

but it's also impossible to fully anticipate all ways in which somebody might feel insulted or hurt, it's unreasonable to expect anyone to skirt everything that may potentially hurt another. There are people in ths world who would be offended if I made dreadlocks from my own hair or made pho. It's a fools errand to try to avoid all issues, and we must depend on each other to be able to step back and recognize our fellow community members as friends and not oppositions. If things are making that hard then there is no evil in stepping away for a while.

More often than not, people do not go from 0 to 100 in an instant, we've just simply be unaware that they have been running at 99 for a while. And nobody should claim the responsability of all parts of the 100. But decent folk in a friendly community do and should check in with each other and offer help in whatever way the person need to feel less like there are no controls. Sometimes that's giving space, sometimes it's just letting somebody know you care and sometimes it's apologies for accidental contributions we may make to the strain in each  others lives.

being people, is hard. Feeling hurt and unintentionally hurting others is common. Enough so that I secretly refer to aging as the gradual accumulation of injuries, both physical an emotional, until such time as you die from them piling up on you.
