Hereís a highly annoying ďI got soberĒ speech and you should too

Not sure what it was. I think the Kavanaugh thing

I was kind of like, WTF is the point of all of this?

Itís like people have gone collectively nuts

I found it entertaining for a while- way too long really

Then all of a sudden, it wasnít

I liked how ridiculous trump was and how much he pissed people off

Then I was like, why does it matter that heís pissing people off? Shouldnít people ideally be not pissed off?

So I stopped reading about it. Stopped listening to NPR. I already didnít watch TV

I also already didnít talk to anyone about it outside of here

But oddly, when I started to stop caring, people started to want to have conversations with me about it

Like maybe I was putting out this aura of nonchalance

And I would just truthfully say, I have no idea

And everyone who Iíd say this too would smile as if Iíd said the exact right thing

But theyíd still give me their opinion and Iíd just say, thatís cool

And it is

Itís all fine

Itís sort of amazing how much people perceive this stuff to matter

Itís 99% noise

If youíre into it, thatís fine

But why are you into it?

Is it serving a purpose for you?

If itís just entertainment, is the amount of energy you spend being entertained worth the payoff?

Do you find yourself preemptively categorizing people into people who would agree with you vs those who would not?

Is that a fair exchange for some entertainment?

Now I just stare out of windows

Iím thinking about acquiring a few turtleneck sweaters

I may take a mixed race mistress

I already have a twin fin, so I think this all fits

This is pretty much the only place I delve into politics. Its pure entertainment when I'm bored. Tweaking tweakers.

For me it's entertainment.

All time spent here is wasted time and it's pathetic.

I wish I could block this part of the site.

I also donít care about sports

One drawback of not paying attention to sports and politics is that relating to people on a superficial level can be challenging

Right

But when youíre interacting with people you donít really know and you donít have the ability to talk about whatever game was on tv the night before, you have to be prepared to be perceived as a little weird

Luckily being gay is totally normal now, so I assume people just think Iím a closet homo

I just tell them I like sports but I don't have the attention span to watch.

It makes sense that you would avoid the news. You were sensible to stop posting in the Politics forum.
