While I would love to keep working until the day before I turn 100, that isn't feasible. Everything tells me that I'll have to retire by the time I'm 70 because of the government's socialistic support for my competitors giving them an enormous competitive advantage over my company. They never could ...

One of my occasionally recurring dreams involves civilizations millions of years in the future. Usually, mankind has died out and then individual humans were brought from the past to populate a new civilization in the future. I had such a dream the other day that was to some degree reminiscent of th...

Warmer air is more able to carry more water vapor. A warmer climate will result, overall, in more rain, not less. In specific cases, shifts in weather patterns might reduce rain in some areas, but in other areas, it can increase rain. During the Holocene Climatic Optimum with temperatures somewhat h...

I never thought it was all until I learned about Prosopagnosia and how it is often found among the Autistic. Then one day, the son of someone I knew came by the office and while talking, he asked me if I'm Autistic. I normally wouldn't have even considered the question, but his job was working with ...

I don't know if this is related to aphantasia, but I don't have much of a recollection of what was discussed in a meeting. At one company where I worked, the president of the company would go on a business trip and when he returned, he could describe every meeting and what was discussed in the meeti...

I had a really pleasant dream yesterday. In the dream, I had retired to Molokai in Hawaii and had a sailboat that I used to go to other islands. I had sailed to Honolulu for the day and was coming back that night. Since I'm colorblind, I cannot distinguish the colors of the lights on the buoys marki...

I had a very strange dream yesterday. The dream was about video games which is odd since I don't play them. In the dream, there was a very popular set of computer games about some creatures from other planets around other stars. The creatures were not humanoid, but did possess the abilities to work ...

i hope today's treatments for polio are more than the iron lung. Polio is nearly always very minor. Only a tiny portion of cases would require an iron lung. Before the vaccine, polio was so common that just about everyone would have it by the time they were 6 or 7 years old. In the vast majority of...

Not really a weird dream, but I just woke up from a dream (someone called on the phone) in which I hosted an annual trap shoot on the farm. It was known as "Old Trophy Day Trap Shoot". It had an adult division, an under 18 division, and a black powder shotgun division. There were five trop...

I do, however, like to listen to the radio, too, which I assume would be considered being entertained by others. Unless it's a two-way radio I think it's still entertaining yourself. Just as reading is entertaining yourself even though there was an author involved. I'm kind of in the middle on this...

I don't feel Trump would win in 2024, if he ran. I feel he might get 50 million votes, which would result in a Democratic landslide. Right now Biden's popularity is well down in the 30s. This portends a Red Wave in this years midterms and state elections. What does the 2020 mid-terms and state elec...

The party of Qanon The party of the anti-lgbt crowd The party of insanely loose gun laws, which lets face it, is a reason for the shooting problem in the US, especially compared to other countries The party of the types of people who think 10 year olds should have to give birth to their rape babies...

I would assume that most people here are very happy to entertain themselves, but that isn't completely obvious. Even if you are happy to entertain yourself, you may also be happy to be entertained by others. When you entertain yourself, what do you prefer? How about when entertained by others? For m...

My Greatest Party Ever. I dreamed that I lived in a suburb of a big city and threw a party. Instructions for getting there involved arriving by parachute. Only a few people came to the party. A few others tried, but landed miles off course. Some neighbors tried to come, but it was obvious that they ...

If you want a source of audio books that is not exactly kosher, look at Usenet. There are a number of groups with audio books on it that you can download and listen to.
