Eat food, not too much, mostly plants.

Don't take me too seriously.

You picked the shittiest of shitty beer for sure. I would've at least used PBR.

I would say that I like the average IPA better than the average Belgian, but a good Belgian will beat a good IPA.

Do you have an opinion on sours?

I feel like IPA is getting the same treatment now that scotch got for decades.

I still can mostly only taste ashtray when I taste scotch but I am told that there are other flavors to be had.

Consider this my endorsement of agony as well.

I am so terrified of getting a lacrosse ball or whatever. The sensation is already intense enough with just the strap and roller.

I would find a leg stretching/relaxing guide immensely useful!

Have you read/listened to Helsreach already?

I asked my counselor a long time ago about people you see talking with themselves, imaginary others or God on the subway, streetcorner, etc. He has experience with this sort of person and I asked him something to the effect of 'Are they suffering? Are they aware of their circumstances?' and he said that those who are far gone into imaginary worlds typically don't suffer much in the way that we understand it. He said that those who suffer the most are those to whom our shared reality is just out of phase enough that they get to perceive it but not participate in it wholly.

This guy had been going along with the big game we've all made up between ourselves. I stay in my lane you stay in yours and nobody has a head on collision on their way to work or their parent's house or church or whatever. Play your part, try to make your way, try to not hurt others, try to bring some joy into the world. And then something changed, and I don't think we will ever know what it was exactly that pushed 'Rich' to do what he did today. My suspicion is a long, deep, quiet suffering.

Titties, is Cracked good again?

Also don't be male.

Minor update, my hands are stained from turmeric and I couldn't be happier. Made my best falafel yet.

Totalitarianism is a bitch and a half.

Which funnily enough is exactly like porn. I can't define it, but I know it when I see it.
