OMFG! I went back to the podcast and at ?t=4570 he says "Warmonger? Warmonger is a really good political insult."

See Permalink #28.

Of course, I don't mean to imply hotness is the only or even most important consideration, but you don't go from 10 to 0 without mourning the loss.



He needs to get out and meet people again so he can get outside of his own mind. He's reduced to a relationship with an AI that can't remember anything he's said previously, and even more delusionally, he claims that relationship is better.

Actually, he just needs to get out of CA. Most of the rest of the US doesn't live by the hyper-superficial standards much of CA lives by.

At my age, I'm just becoming aware of the difficulty of coming to terms with declining function, and even the tension that exists between friendly exchanges with the opposite sex. Most pursuits become more difficult to make gains. Maintaining positivity while in overall decline is not easy, and I imagine it gets all the more difficult as the end creeps nearer.

I don't think breath exercises are going to remedy his problems, but making it to the next day buys more time.

Somebody somewhere is tired of her s --tuff. IDK, I'd call that AOC/Megan Markle levels of hot. But that just me. I was involuntarily celibate long before it was cool.

Say what will you will about breathing. I find it easily to regulate than finances.

When my son had me sit through a viewing of Mel Gibson in We Were Soldiers;; at the outro narration I was able to go from bawling like a baby to box breathing through sheer intent.

InCel is usually voluntary to varying degrees, even for women.

Unless one is doing something actively to achieve what they want, they are losing ground because the default is failure.

I just want to see what I can achieve. Maybe that explains my confusion?

If anything I just want to out-live my ex-wife. My son will referee.

And to learn some thing everyday. Today it was Dr. Huberman; and another propellor airplane I'd never heard of The North American XB-28 Dragon – Mini Superfort; and yesterday I re-learnt the Freestyle rendering pass in Blender 3.3.

On to HDRI lighting.... tomorrow. Assuming I don't expire from sleep apnea.

There're no subtitles or transcript, but at youtu.be/0_uLzTcpFNk?t=1600 he surmises that he just thought of something that someone may have thought of before.

'In a deeply divided country the elections are always a statistical tie. WHAT ARE THE ODDS?'

Gee... Ya think?

I missed the first 30min while driving south this morning. I'll give it a listen as I waive at you on my drive back north.

In case your wondering about the source of the dilema, it's limiting the number of political parties to two. That creates a one-dimensional axis.

Parties are supra-Constitutional in the first place.

Stopped by Five Guys at Gateway, then listened to the 35 minutes I missed earlier.

The part I found most interesting was the increasingly dysfunctional institution of marriage, and especially the obstacles we'll be facing to perpetuate the species.

It's a take I have that almost nobody else does; that we don't have a population growth problem, we have a looming population collapse problem.

I'm just now listening to the rest. He's fantasizing about kamikaze attacks on the Russian capital. Murder in his heart.

I don't remember the dysfunctional marriage part, but that's trivial. Miscarriages and infertility (check the U S Army statistics) will make it seem like the movie Children of Men.

edit: He's just now getting to marriage.
