    Yes a tactical Nuke would be much better just drop it on Mr Kim and his ruling party away from populated areas. But to destroy all of North Korea ?

    I am very intuitive, for a guy, and empathetic by nature, but I am also cold on the surface... The thing is, I felt helpless with depression myself, and I know, nothing anyone could have said would have made a damn bit of difference at that moment... my body was in a total chemical imbalance caused by nervous breakdown and depression

    ... the meds helped...

    But I also saw a psychologist... and he was a genius... At least, he helped me take a good look at myself, and helped me adjust my self esteem and he gave me tools to self analyze my own twisted thoughts....

    So My assistance to depressed people is to tell em to go to the doctor..., see a good psychologist, and will offer to take them to the zoo... but I wont try to talk, or listen... I just buy em popcorn, and point at monkeys...

    That can be hard to be like that and often enough either avoid reading such stuff, or what some people do, is learn to not take it personally through either therapy or through their own mind talk...

    There are so many rotten things (as well as many great things happerning) and if you were to take on the burden of all the ills of the World and take it all personally, you'd have no space or room left within yourself to enjoy your life for what it is and simply be you...

    Yeah. I really should watch the news less than I do, I mean, I may become uninformed because I stop watching the news. But damn, The peace and tranquility would be a nice trade-off for that though :/

    I refused to take my Meds and battled along without them. The Dr was not impressed but the side effects from taking them were pretty drastic. Psychologists are good but Psychiatrists here are murder , $600 for 15 minutes.

    "On August 25, 2022, Garrison Brothers Distillery will introduce a limited release 4-year-old, 100 proof bourbon whiskey called Hurricane Tough. This will be the bourbon whiskey that filled those nine new oak barrels on August 25, 2017. The barrels have already been set aside in a revered spot in one of our aging barns. When we empty those barrels in 2021, after Angel’s Share losses, we anticipate we’ll yield a little more than one thousand 375 ml bottles"

    I had already donated to Hurricam Relief...all the royalties from my book... and more...

    But then I heard about this, and well, I became a proud contributor... and a bonus of that is, I actually own a partial barrel (Well, One bottle, anyway. ) aging now....

    It is kind of cool to think about that barrel... waiting... working... aging...

    Its a double pleasure, helping, and having something for myself to look forward to...

    They say that what you give comes back to you... and here is proof of that. A hundred proof that is...
