    I'm into brunettes, but then again I'm blonde.

    Your feeling about Angelina seems to have been correct though.

    Nah, I've never been into Angelina, although I used to have some friends who were. There has always been something about her that turned me off. I've always had this feeling about her that she's like a spider — they tend to want to devour their male partner after (or even during) the act of mating. She's the kind of woman you had better stay away from.

    No, she didn't have borderline personality disorder. She had bipolar disorder, which has some similarities with BPD, but it's an entirely different condition.

    I remember her from the cop series "Police Woman", with Earl Holliman as her sidekick, and I later on saw her in a couple of movies as well.

    I thought she was suspected to have BPD like Marilyn Monroe.

    I played a game this weekend with my family where the players are dealt character cards. You could be a human, a snake, or a mongoose. I literally got dealt a snake every time. The only time I played a human is when they had to re-deal, but the first card had been a snake. Hmmmmmm......

    I made a joke that I'd better be rectilinear. No-one got it.

    Maybe it's because you were born in the Chinese Year of the Snake.

    Indeed. I think you're on to something there, Aragorn.

    So now here we are. I'm in (just past) my mid fifties. I've had four decades now of adult life. And some very consistent experiences. To summarize in one arena, when I'd express concerns about the direction of the Republican party - my entire family was and still mostly is Republican - I would hear one or both of the following,

    "Liberal fear mongering!"

    "That's the right-wing. That's the fringe. They're not going to take over."

    And now here we are at the point where literally all of my concerns have come to pass. (and worse)

    Why have folks who call themselves Republican been so clueless and in such denial? Why can't they learn even now?

    I believe they've conditioned their own selves with their constant repetition of talking points. They came to believe them.

    Sad.

    I was going to start a thread regarding mass murder last week but didn't.

    Uvalde Texas May 24, 2022: 14 elementary school kids were shot dead by another mass murderer. It's funny, I was thinking exactly like the Democratic congressperson from that area: "I hope it was a Suicide-Mass murder"... because the alternative is too fucked up to consider.

    Mass murder is the newest American addition to the world of sport.

    In truth, I wouldn't even venture a guess. I would speculate that if it was another one of 'those', meaning racially motivated events very bad things will happen. Thankfully, the current state looks like a Suicide motivation. The shooter was local and is dead. It is difficult to watch. Savior Governor Abbott (Mr. Right to Life) has jumped into action though. He's an older generation, Madison Cawthorn.

    Was just chatting with the wife about that. It's time a story also reported something along the lines of "and the gunman was shot dead by a shopper as he drew a bead on his next victim".
