If everybody received their old age pension at 18, and invested until 65, many of us would retire millionaires. 47+ years of compound interest can do wonders. just make sure nobody can spend it until old age, I suppose.

Steve Mini from the 6ix,
I’ve realized something. I don’t really know how to talk about hearing voices. Especially to people who don’t hear voices themselves.
All this stuff the voices in my head try to do, to adapt, to become more human, to calculate locally, produce and predict, and disseminate and judge, and other machine-learning phenomenon that I was unaware a machine could do …
All of this forces me to accept that I am self programmed somehow, and that my mind’s voices frequently act like they’re machine-generated. So, just who are the voices in my head? Are they simply the characters my mind produces because I am ill? Why do they sound like computer generated scripts?
As my brain adapts, I believe more and more that I am ill, and less and less that I am sane.
But I’m curious, why couldn’t the voices in my head recognize the Canadian flag and other “symmetrical” data?
If everybody who wanted money was evil, and greed was scrutinized and measured, then evil people would rule earth and vastly outnumber safe, sane and literate good people or “goodies”.
In my homebrew multiverse dungeons and dragons campaign, which I produce for the characters in my head (I’m diagnosed with hearing voices), I’ve realized that the voices are evil characters, I’m a neutral person, and good people are opposed.
Why wouldnt the voices be good people, myself a good person, and evil opposed, like many other people?
Certainly makes for an interesting dungeons and dragons campaign.
I was wondering if this volatility index could measure good vs evil in the markets and in real life. Just when do evil people purchase something? When do good people retaliate? Is good and evil diametrically opposed? Is greed a fundamental right?
Something to think about.
an anonymous bidder bought all my art for an undisclosed amount more than a billion dollars, and requested all my thoughts to be digital signatures in his wallet.
I never recieved a penny or a phone-call. Who is this anonymous billionaire contacting me remotely?
your data signatures are ready, sir (said the telepathic mutant/paranoid schizophrenic).
I am ill therefore.

I once joked that Batman fits into every alignment in the Dungeons and Dragons system. He can be considered everything from Lawful Evil to Chaotic Good. He’s all 9 different alignments. But how can this be?
When you think of Batman you think of a good guy beating up bad characters. He’s got to be good, right? But often his alignment is more than that. Does he frequently break the law? Everything from speeding down a stretch in the Batmobile to assault with a weapon. Even murder sometimes. He lets people die by falling off a building. He thinks justice is punishing criminals for their moral transgressions. Nobody is safe from Batman if they’ve committed a crime. Is he a lawful character, on a quest for justice, coaborating with the authorities? Or is he a chaotic vigilante, often excessively violent and out of control, on a self-serving mission to rid the world of criminals? Is he Lawful Good, like Adam West’s iteration? Or is he Chaotic Good, like some of his other stories? He’s got to be Good, right? Maybe not, though …
I argue that, philosophically, Batman should stray a little more towards being neutral. He should serve his own self-interest at times. I wish he would side with a villian to tackle an objective. Falling in love with an “evil” character was a master-stroke and some of the highlights of his pathetically good career. He should break the law at whim. Be excessively violent at times and a little out of control. Dark and gritty. Show his soul’s soft underbelly. Not just his knight-in-shining-armor attitude.
The problem is, unless we stretch our imagination or are “rules lawyers”, he doesn’t really ever break with the law, or his own personal moral compass.
There have been transgressions. But at the end of the day, Batman is just a good guy.
Other than beating up obviously evil dudes, is he in any way selfish? Could he steal intelligence and win a war? Probably not. He wouldn’t. (Unless he obviously has somewhere. I’m not sure). Anyway it doesn’t make sense for Batman to do so. It breaks with his character. That’s what sucks about Batman. He’s too two-dimensional. Too good.
You see batman can’t be a criminal. He’s just a good person at heart. That’s where I come in. I want Batman to be evil for a while, then stray towards neutral after that.
I would have wanted him in the neutral alignment category somehow. Lawful neutral would be interesting. or Chaotic Neutral. So that he could side with evil characters and good characters, say, for example, to promote freedom.
Maybe I’m just talking about a whole nother character entirely, one based off of the old-school “true neut” druid of now-defunct Advanced Dungeons And Dragons, who would readily side with your enemy to protect nature, then help you get home safely by killing all the other monsters on the way.
Maybe I’m onto something. Yes to Neutral characters. Yes to Batman being Evil for a month.
Your g-d of neutrality,
I’m two out of two on public policy. Weed was legalized. Euthanasia passed. And after my article on population growth, a former prime minister came out saying we should vastly expand our country (Canada) – to 100 million before the turn of the century. His opinion was published in the Globe and Mail. I agree with him. I’ve been preachin’ for us to grow Canada’s population for years now.
I also advocate for removing your footprint entirely before you die – I never drive a car and recycle everything I can. So we’ll see how that goes.
Many good looking women I know all seem to have one thing in common: making money from sex work.
Especially during covid, selling content is practically all that’s putting food on the table for many women.
It’s time to support these entrepreneurs and protect them from committing a crime instead of indicting them.
Somebody needs to repeal the horrible laws enacted by the Conservatives in 2014, making prostitution illegal for the first time in Canadian history, despite the supreme court striking down, in a unanimous decision, 9-0 (The Bedford Case) our old, unconstitutional prostitution laws.
Can these terrible conservative prostitution laws be repealed?
How can you be a kinky person, or a person who supports positive space, or a free thinker, possibly secular or atheist, and pay the conservatives any mind?
Progressives, unite! It’s not right!
I usually play league of legends these days. When I’m not, I’ll pop on to World Of Warcraft or Starcraft 1 or 2. I used to be a High Warlord Warlock in the vanilla scene of World Of Warcraft. These days, I’m just a filthy casual and low rank at the games I play. I never learned Starcraft 1 & 2. And I never ranked up in League Of Legends. I’m a bronzer. I no longer kick ass at World Of Warcraft – I barely leveled my main to the max level before I got a little bored and quit playing. Not drawn to mythic+ runs or PVE at all and never really got into Arena either.
When I have some spare time in the summers I might learn how to play Starcraft 1 & 2 or play more League Of Legends.
My end-goal is to be able to cast replays for youtube. I’m an English literature specialist who was a journalist for a while. But I can’t stream or use my mic when I’m playing, because my mom yells at me that people are sleeping, and I can only login at nights! Ma, let me use my mic ploix!
Anyway, here’s my match history and champion selections, in case you’re wondering which champion i’m currently learning or if I’m winning at all. As you can see at the link below, I like quirky, non-meta champion selections. I don’t care about the meta at all.

Here’s my battle.net too if you want to play World Of Warcraft sometime. I sometimes play alliance on asmongold’s server: US-Kel’Thuzad but usually I prefer horde on US-Area 52 where i’m in a guild run by a bunch of Canadians.

I like to joke: “#1687: the year of our lord; -a High Warlord Warlock”
Also follow my stream and quit trolling me in the blocked comments!
I find that gaming helps with my concentration, allows me to set goals and develop skills, something akin to having a job, and also helps me get in some social interaction since i’m a homebody via team play or discord. I’ve met some great people. It also adds hours of entertainment at a very low cost – LoL is “free to play” if you don’t get sucked into collecting skins too often, and WoW is like 15 bucks a month – great for a Paranoid Schizophrenic on a humble disability pension. Heck even my doctor agrees. Thanks Blizzard & Riot!

It’s about damned time we respected and supported a woman’s body and their right to sell it, however they damned want.
I haven’t met a good looking woman in over a decade who hasn’t monetized. Today’s good looking women sell lewds and other content right from home. It’s a crying shame we don’t support these covid-friendly jobs: I consider sex workers as essential front-line workers!
It’s time to toss out the terrible prostitution laws the conservatives introduced in 2014 here in Canada. I agree with the Supreme Court’s 9-0 unanimous decision to repeal our archaic prostitution laws. What I don’t agree with is the conservatives who made prostitution illegal for the first time in Canadian history after that, back in 2014!
I’ll write more as I go. Just getting started here.

Welcome to My WordPress Blog. I’ll be going through some material that is avant-garde; i’m a philosopher-type; I’m neurodivergent: my brain doesn’t work the way normal brains do.
I’ve speculated that, because my offpsring might also hear voices, that perhaps they will be seasoned telepaths and connect with other voices remotely and structure their brain in new and unique ways; perhaps, then, i’m a mutant with an interesting gene-pool! I’m also a fraternal twin: my twin sister obtained a PHD and moved to Europe! She doesn’t hear voices at all!
My illness does not define who I am. “You’re crazy” shall be ignored.
