The most important consequence is this, this means changes.. Changes our insecurity won’t let us face.
If we’re to deal with the changes this development will bring us we need to learn how to be more confident, more secure. But as long as there are people so insecure they need us to be insecure that’s not going to happen. We need agility training for people much as we do for dogs. Which is really more confidence training for dogs, because it give them the confidence they need to handle what they find themselves in.
We need confidence training for people so make them able to handle the unexpected, so that they know that they can handle the unxpected. And if it means that the controlling lose their control over others, then maybe they will learn that they don’t need that control..
The beginning of this week saw the hashtag #metoo trend to increase awareness about how many women have been harassed in their lives. On my Facebook feed alone, I’d estimate that around 85% of the women I know posted something. The actual number of women who have been harassed is higher than that, based on the stories I know about and was told about in private chats, but not everyone felt comfortable talking about their experiences on Facebook or Twitter and a person’s experiences are theirs alone to share. Talking about that sort of thing can be hard, and it’s uncomfortable all around. Talk
In the post linked to above I had a look at the exchange between Mentzer and Price and I have to note, that doesn’t sound like Mentzer. He aint that stupid, or that young Whoever sent it has no idea who Frank Mentzer is. The whole affair just stinks.
This is what Frank Mentzer had to say on the subject of broken stairs To sum* it up, he hates them. And he none too fond of people who refuse to deal with them.
I remember when a young teenaged boy and his friend were charged with kiling the first boy’s younger sister. The detective on the case said they did it under the influence of D&D.
California’s attorney general got involved, the boys were cleared of the charge, and the girl’s actual killer was Identified, tried, and convicted. Thank to false accusatons pair of young mean very nearly got imprison and their lives ruined thanks to a coward who just wouldn’t admit he could be wrong.
Ms. Price gives me no confidece in her honesty or that she can be trusted. In fact she leaves me with the impression that she wants other women to be abused and left with no recourse but to cower in fear while their abusers parade around around like peacock popinjays.
*There, the spelling has been corrected. And I’m blaming it on my dysphasia.
Today I learned that I have apnea. Not obstructive apnea perse, but what is known as central apnea. A medical assistant noted that my breathing is shallow and slow, which likely explains my lack of energy. Means I will be getting an xPAP, and maybe even supplemental oxygen. Though in the latter case it’ll most likely be a respirator of some kind.
Me with energy, that’ll be a change.
So the lesson for the day is, if somebody says your breathing is shallow, get it checked out, and get it done yesterday
