  1. Episode 7 was really very bad. Kali's character was one-dimensional (+ wouldn't she have an American accent by now?) and her companions were just a collection of bad costumes/ hairstyles. Also, why bother putting on masks to commit crimes if you're going to have distinctive hair allowing you to be identified from a mile away? Everything the episode was trying to do was put into the dialogue very on-the-nose. It just didn't succeed. Better to skip 207 rather than try to imbue it with purpose/quality.

    Congratulations on the moving plans Robin! Have you looked at Galway? It's a bit bigger than your range (80K population), but the folks there seemed liberal enough to me when I spent time there, and it's a beautiful area.

    What an apropos symbol for the situation! Congrats, Dr. P!

    History Thread!

    History is tricky stuff. As in what was the mass of human experience like in a particular time and place, when most records and artifacts come from elites? What story is a modern historian trying to tell, what story is a primary source from the time trying to tell, and how does that distort what facts are selected and what meanings are derived? How do we read that while being conscious of what our own bias will do to shape what we learn? How does what we learn change us and our biases? And yet, history exists. The human race and all its works didn't just pop into existence in the present moment. So yes we should all be reading history. Just be careful what books you read. Maybe we should just look at statues instead...

    If You Could Change History

    I see that you're right, I've fucked up my forks. We're the Orthodox splitting from the Catholics (chimps) who later split with Protestants (bonobos).

    I found a pitfall where I started detecting some subtle skepticism from my therapist on gender identity issues and it made me put a wall up to prevent meaningful sharing about anything else. In other words, maybe "fine with it" isn't enough- I need them to "get it".

    I would go back to cull chimp-related hominids and give advantages to bonobo-related hominids. Then our modern societies would all be matriarchal sex-communes.

    @Robin Of House Hill- Thank you. Of course you're right. The mind/body interface just ratchets up some days and doesn't make it feel like a choice, more like an inevitability. But not looking forward to a train-wreck at home or at work... Thank you honey. I know when I start losing my sense of humor about things I'm not in a good place. You and other great people on the board have been a lifeline. xoxo

    It's definitely me that's holding me back. I mean if/when I transition it will mean a divorce, I don't really care what the rest of my family thinks now that my mom has passed. I am the obstacle.

    Look for a soy milk that is B-12 fortified if you can't get around to buying/taking B-12 supplements. And pumpkin seeds have a decent amount of iron...

    I was trying to side-step suggesting that religion was a better cure than psychiatry. Enchantment to me can include a sense of excitement or a feeling that even if one is deluding oneself in creating a positive aura around something, it's ok. Still reading Moore's Jerusalem right now- seems pretty clear that he believes in predestination. Overall I'd take Jodorowsky as my oracle over Moore, as the latter is a bit more pessimistic.
