    Back when I was a teenager in the late '80s, my parents divorced and my dad started dating this really ditzy, flaky, almost schizoid sci-fi fanatic named Julie, who AMAZINGLY never did any drug in her entire life. One time when I was alone with her (Dad was out working on her car), she told me her theory: Spock is actually a real-life person and in real-life Spock is this interstellar Jesus Christ who travels from one solar system to another to spread his Zen message of peace and love. And any time now, the real-life Spock was going to land on Earth and share his enlightenment with us.....that was 30 years ago and I'm still waiting for the Spock/Jesus/Buddha visit to this planet.

    Also, she had a toddler daughter from a previous relationship and Julie told me that she knew her daughter came from another dimension in which people can pass through matter......because the other day her toddler walked directly into a wall. At that point I silently thought to myself, "Maybe your daughter is just fucking STUPID and that's why she walked into a wall."

    This Julie ditzy Trek fan also told me that the stars in the night sky are REALLY thousands of UFO's watching us.....silly me, I thought those points of light in the sky were alien solar systems! And again, (unlike a former drug abuser like me) this woman had never done any drug in her entire life, not even smoking weed. I'll bet if you gave her a dose of pure LSD-25 it would have the reverse effect and make her as logical/rational as her Spock/Jesus/Buddha figure is.

    Please don't get me wrong, Julie was a very harmless, kind, gentle-natured sweetheart of a lady (she called herself the "sweetie-beast"), but in some ways she was psychologically a bit "out to lunch" and touring the outer gas giant plants when it came to her sci-fi fanaticism. Eventually she and Dad had their differences, gradually broke up and drifted apart. But I still can't forget Julie's larger-than-life sci-fi conspiracies...while sober as a librarian.

    She sounds like she might have suffered from mental illness.

    I thought you meant like “the biggest, over-the-top” fan or something like that.

    I’m not sure “nutty” or “whacked out” are the best terms to use.

    I’m going to see what @The Old Mixer thinks, but I’m not sure this is a great topic to continue.

    My thumb is wavering in a roughly horizontal position.

I don't care to deal with fussy, butthurt shit for another post.

    Okay, well that’s certainly a rational, reasonable response.

    Of course you could just not come here anymore, but that wouldn’t be as dramatic, now would it?

    I’ll close this and pass on your request to TPTB.

    Well that’s certainly a case of seeing the thumb as half-empty...or something.
