    At the rock climbing gym today there was this ten year old there who was finishing V6s and giving advice to any adult he saw fail a climb.

    Bouldering is awesome.

    Too bad... he *could* have had a V8.

    (Sorry, since I have no idea what this even means, dumb jokes are all I've got.)

    It’s how the climbs are rated for challenge. VB is the beginner rating where there’s basically a ladder. Then V0 is next one up and it goes up from there. I can do most V3s and a few V4s, V6 is where you start getting into the advanced ones.

    Gyms tend to max out at V9 or V10 but I think in the outdoors it goes up to V16.

    If a man talks in a forest and there isn't a woman to hear him, is he still wrong?

    Is it me, or does Meryl Streep in her Hook cameo actually look like Richard Dreyfuss?!

    Dear Supervisee:

    It is not my fault you suck. It is merely my job to point out the frequency and severity of your suckitude.

    It's actually pretty dumb. They wouldn't have given you an IV unless you needed it for medical reasons. My favorites are people just waking up from prolonged comas up, & somehow rolling out some time that day. Unless you got magic muscles like those flying Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon people, that ain't happening. Sorry Uma, but The Bride wakes up after 4 years, from a gunshot to the brain, & drinks through a straw for many months, & probably never regains the agility of a samurai... ever.

    Man is wrong no matter what the situation or what is said.

    Even now, I’m wrong for agreeing that I am wrong, because I am wrong.

    People in a prolonged coma demand a lot of attention and many complications arise from the fact that they are not moving, their tissues tend to necrotize and so they must be continually checked to see if their arent developing ulcers which are then very hard to heal. It's amazing that people can still be alive after a coma of more than a year, let alone valid.

    It's a strange feeling to know that this is the first Christmas/New Year without any nightmare neighbours to contend with. (Because there were always outbursts around Christmas and within the first two weeks of January.) Also, no narcissistic environmental health officers to keep exploiting a bad situation.

    I know that I shouldn't keep dwelling on the past. As I keep educating myself with self help videos on narcissistic abuse, A LOT of things from that three year period are starting to make sense. The red flags were blatantly obvious but I was getting proverbially kicked when I was already down. It was a lose/lose situation no matter what was said or done. I'm grateful to have fought my way out of that crazy making loop because, unless you don't, there's no end to it.

    If anything, I've gained a lot of positive insight and I'm really going to appreciate Christmas this year.

    A narcissist is someone who never thinks of me.

    Are you a president of a certain country, or merely aspirational?

    How is it possible that with all our modern technology, nobody has invented a chap stick tube where the head doesn’t randomly fall on the floor when you’re getting toward the end?

    The more philosophical question, is if it's at its end, is it still the head?

    But to your point, they did. It's lip balm that comes in a squeeze tube

    Someone could be stopping time and then un-stopping it and we wouldn't know.

    ^that happens all the time! Time at work stretches like an old chewing gum on a shoe sole while time at home zings past at warp 10.

    And change history. We may have lost people we were supposed to love, and entirely different lives without us knowing it
