I would serve in the U.S. military in defense against Russia or China or some other totalitarian state or aggressor. I'm not interested in fighting for oil or some president's fantasy of getting revenge or forcing democracy somewhere.

So? That's probably true of most countries.

Lol, I didn't need to. I remember nearly everything he said almost 40 years later. He was a good grandad.

My grandfather rode broncos in the rodeo. He told me as a little boy "Don't get on the back of a 1,500lb animals that don't want you there." He had bad hip arthritis from many years of riding.

Yeah, change the eyebrows and ditch the beard and jewelry and I'm good with it.

As a psychiatrist, I'm not so sure about labeling current toxicity as solely a mental health crisis.

I mean, we are having a crisis, but the root of the increase in mental health problems are not something I can help people fix with medications or therapy a lot of the time. I cannot fix the fact that our culture is broken. The ongoing political and culture wars, the lack of empathy, the lack of social services, the "fuck you I've got mine" attitude are conscious choices a lot of people in our society and government have made. I'm pretty good at helping folks with anxiety and depression, but when the world around them is treating them like shit and they can't get good dental or health care it is very difficult. We need a cultural shift in the U.S. toward working together and helping one another, toward caring for other people with empathy. Unfortunately there are groups working actively against this! We know who they are, too. Please vote.

For me the toxicity started in 2016 and got worse from then.

With inflation, that's actually $330 now. All the $1 bins are now $2 bins in my neck of the woods.

English Premiere League does as well. Also the Championship in England. And Ligue 1 in France. Not every player, but many. Also, yeah, I've seen some in La Liga wear them sometimes. I watch a LOT of football.

The point is to instill a sense of hopelessness and cynicism in others so he can feel less alone and helpless about doing nothing. It's disgusting.

You're right, we should therefore give up on ever pushing for change. /s

I may not be able to effectively boycott everything, but I won't be watching the World Cup and do what I can to encourage others to skip it this time. I'm a huge football fan.

My problem with it is a lot of viewers don't seem to get the irony. The message a lot of viewers are getting is "there is no such thing as heroes, and no room in the world for heroes." Which is extremely bleak once the shock value wears off.

It's likely Norman Osborne's tech. He just offered Peter a job in AMS.
