I cannot tell you how nice it is not to have to hear about the bloviating blowhard's GD incessant tweets all the time.I really dislike twitter, and fb, and all the rest. It is just so much more pleasant now.Woo hoo!!!!V
I really dislike twitter, and fb, and all the rest.I recently got off Facebook. I gave it up last year for Lent, but still sneaked peaks, and during lockdown I was on it way too much. I realized recently, though, that the negativity was bringing me down, as well as the sheer inanity of some of the stuff--I mean, I like dog videos as much as the next person, but it was a huge time-suck that I didn't even enjoy. So far, so good--I haven't missed it, just the habit of it. Also, if you haven't watched the Netflix movie "The Social Dilemma," I highly recommend. It really made me think carefully about the stuff I put in my brain. I mean, I like computers and movies and stuff as much as the next person--maybe more--but when we get into things like the effect on brain chemistry, it's a little frightening.

And reading it or seeing it all the time really can screw up your brain. Best just to shut it off. Go to wikipedia and search on the date and read all of the interesting stuff that has happened that day. That's fun. Reddit has a few good subreddits that are interesting and fun, and some godawful ones to stay away from. They don't seem to overlap much.Get too much negativity and after awhile you will start thinking there's a secret cabal of canabalistic alien overlord socialist billionaire vampire zombie pedophiles running the world out a pizzeria in the Bronx, and rump is our only hope . . . .
