It's not that I hadn't expected it to be...

Especially when the pandemic got rolling. I knew it would take those two and others, they were vulnerable by age alone.

There was something I did conclude on my own early into the pandemic, tough, that I will briefly describe here as we are now in the end of the first stage of the process.

Cultural anthropology is where I am coming from here though genetic anthropology is the place the original theory was determined;

Remember Stephen Jay Gould? Remember his theory of Punctuated Equilibrium? (I realize that Dr. Gould was a genetic anthropologist and his theory is meant to describe an attribute of genetic evolution, I have managed to extrapolate the basic theory to a more mundane level of culture, and philosophical ecosystems.)

Briefly, the theory claims that evolution did not occur in a metered set of steps, rather, they took place during , perhaps, catastrophic events in leaps and bounds which is where some genetic selection took place due to necessity of survival. (How's that for brief? )

So I have concluded that this pandemic will prove itself to be one of those punctuated equilibrium events where all of our species is affected by the same thing which will cause all of our species to come to a reckoning on the philosophical, spiritual and cultural levels all within a rather short time frame, thus the word punctuated.

Now, two years in, I am seeing some areas of significant change, Hard to articulate at this point put things are definitely shifting on many levels, hang in there 'cause we're only two years in on a three to five year process. Changes will include a reduction in global population though we won't know how significant that will be until three or four years from now. People on the planet now are all in some kind of internal review, some will learn from it, others not.

I just hope the changes bring us to a better place as a species, if not, the planet will evict us.

What ever happened to...

this --> ?

Where has the question mark gone? Why does it rarely appear at the end of questions that I see here in thread titles and in comments?

Honestly. It detracts from the purpose of the words present to have to reread questions several times because writers either use a period at the end of a sentence that is a question or they leave nothing at all


I realize it might be asking too much but I would welcome the return of "?" at the end of sentences or phrases that are actually questions, asking for a response.

Asking for a friend.



This still makes me laugh...

Remember when the world was normal?














That Does It. I'm gonna say this and

I hope it becomes the chant every time a reprobate R shows up in public:

BABY KILLERS!! REPUBLICANS ARE BABY KILLERS!!

That should be yelled at them whenever they dare show their faces in public, everywhere, every fucking day until they leave office!

This is from November last year but now that things have been moving right along we need to keep this in mind too.
