Psychologist Dr. David Weeks mentions people with a mental illness "suffer" from their behavior while eccentrics are quite happy.[6][7] He even states eccentrics are less prone to mental illness than everyone else.
According to studies, there are eighteen distinctive characteristics that differentiate a healthy eccentric person from a regular person or someone who has a mental illness (although some may not always apply). The first five are in most people regarded as eccentric:[6]
  • Nonconforming attitude
  • Idealistic
  • Intense curiosity
  • Happy obsession with a hobby or hobbies
  • Knew very early in his or her childhood they were different from others
  • Highly intelligent
  • Opinionated and outspoken
  • Unusual living or eating habits
  • Not interested in the opinions or company of others
  • Mischievous sense of humor

what a hernia feels like

When your ileocolic valve between
small and large intestines empties into a hernial
excursion of the latter, you get some very loud gurgling noises.

These feel like a cat on your lap (well, your right
lap) purring.  For a second every 10-30 seconds.

As long as Mr. Appendix is ok, we're cool.  Since it was last November 2011 (or 2010?), I'm good.

Entropy always wins.  Everyone dies of something.

(5 of plumbing for every cancer, but I've shown that you will eventually (in the mathematical sense) eventually get cancer.  At least as modern Western it probably won't be disease or violence, war, famine, or plague.

cat harvest

Cat finally got one of the Mockingbird pairs that was constantly cawing and flying around our house.  I'm impressed.

The mate is cawing and I feel sorry but that's evolution.

This is the most tiny, and only female cat I've symbioted. What a gal.  She's gotten a little larger, so perhaps she was not fully mature when adopted.

Rats bats lizards and several avian species.

Kid asked me not to save the corpses next to the key he needs to access daily.  So moved a few shelves down.

reuters as fascist tool

"Burials are quick in order to hide casualties and identities."

No, you clueless Reuters reporter, in deserts you bury fast.  Jews, Muslims, others.
Best not to rot or spread contagion.  The amerinds would burn dwellings too.

Your sheltering empire is crumbling, reuters, report on it.

Kittie don't surf, quadrocopter cat, wagner quadrofeline


My hope in humanity is restored.

Needs aviator goggles, rigidized airblown scarf (for look and to stay away from blades).

Snoopy and his doghouse have nothing on this.

Needs Ride of the Valkyeries broadcast, and two others that fly in formation.  Kittie don't surf.
