    No; I am not laughing about getting the shot.  I am laughing about having to erase the typo that read "shart."

    The house is now free of my Housemate's elderly mother. I put this in the happy thread because it's been a godsend. She's in a home with care, and, perhaps most importantly, no stairs to hurl herself down during her next dementia fit where she has decided to 'drive off' to visit her dead parents.  Her daughter seems so much better: but in truth we're all better over all now that we're getting more than 4 hours of sleep a night

    If Donald Trump has incontinence issues, I neither mock nor condemn him for that. I only mock and condemn him for his moral attributes. We cannot always control our bodies. We can always control our morals. No matter what culture we are born into or how twisted our upbringing, we can choose whether to be kind or cruel, generous or greedy, loyal or treacherous, modest or proud. I have seen this in my own friends. People suffering utter deprivation or hemmed in by horror have behaved well. Donald Trump, blessed with every social and material advantage, has not.
     
    (Though if Trump is addicted to adderall, that probably falls under morals. I doubt that there's a medical need or that anyone held a gun to his head to make him take the drug.)

    Facebook Plans to End Hands-Off Approach to Politicians' Posts
     
    it will no longer keep posts by politicians up on its site by default if their speech breaks its rules...
    The change...is a retreat from a policy introduced less than two years ago, when the company said speech from politicians was newsworthy and should not be policed...
    politicians’ posts will no longer be presumed newsworthy, said the people with knowledge of the plans, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. Politicians will be subject to Facebook’s content guidelines that prohibit harassment, discrimination or other harmful speech

    Rice-wind, devout follower of Timra'Keth ran for his damn life as the horde of barbarian savages chased after him out for his blood. They were stronger than him, bloodthirsty, and ruthless. Worse, they were faster! Even his own martial arts training in the ways of Kung Pow Chicken Style would not save him. No, he realized as he raced towards the edge of the cliff, the mist laden chasm a half mile drop awaiting him, only fear could save him now If he could just find the zone, the the epitome of terror! If the legends were true!
     
    A spear whizzed right past his ear, a bit of blood dripped from the lobe. Another inch and the ear would no longer be a part of him!
     
    Well, that helped with the zone finding. He began to chant in a high pitched whine, "I must fear. Fear is the body saver! Fear is the the sweet rush that keeps blood in the frame. I will embrace my fear. I will permit it to fill my mind and, if need be, empty my bowels.  And when I escape what I fear, I shall make sure it is long beyond my rear view. Where the threat is gone, only Mother Fear will remain keeping me safe."
     
    And suddenly, Rice-Wind, member of the sacred order of  Fleeing Chicken monastery, found his speed becoming faster than a greysnout dird! the savages fell behind, muttering in shock! But that was nothing compared to the moment his foot touched mist, and instead of falling, he raced along it as if it were solid! As long he could stay terrified at this level, as long as he didn't look down , he would make it! 
     
    For Fear had power!
     
    Interference:  Fear induced personal miracles! Those who hit a certain level of fear , out their mind soil your pants level panic may find themselves surpassing the limits of their species or attributes! Examples include (But are not limited to): Able to leap far buildings, fling a cow across a pasture at a predator that scared you, or scream so loud that walls break! 
     

     
    (It should be noted, not everyone knows or believes this happens. Perhaps if we get holy books one can find better instructions in the scriptures of Timra'Keth, likely in a small, thin, flexible holybook encased in a worn fuzzy tribble hide  with the word " Panic!" inscribed on it "... in large friendly letters.)
