That is rather amazing Andy. I like it.

I understand what you're saying and where you're coming from Evan. I think my ultimate point was that batshit insane people that want to discredit legitimate forms of protest and dissent will find ways to discredit them, no matter how you behave. But you are right that even in the face of that, it is important to carry yourself better than what those people seem to expect of you.

Well played, robot. Well played

That's exactly what I meant. You can't afford hand legitimacy to the arguments of those kinds of people.

Trevor Noah pretty accurately described my inexplicable interest in the insane mouth vomit she projects

Yeah, oh how I wish I could still be entertained by people like that, now they just irritate and annoy me because they're taken so seriously. Maybe someday.

I simply treat the two as mutually exclusive objective facts.

I'm entertained by her because I cannot take her seriously.

I'm terrified by her because so many other people do.

Both parts of that are equally true, and I just separate and compartmentalize them

It's amazing how your body can build up a tolerance to these things with enough practice. I'd bet if he took that many pills right off the bat it would have killed him.
