- “Learned helplessness” is totally a thing, but perhaps some people are more prone to it than others.
- If I were critically injured, I would be totally OK with having my blood replaced with freezing salt water to “pause” my metabolism long enough for the ED docs to fix me up.
- In the past two weeks I’ve started watching 3 new shows: Longmire, Orange is the New Black (thoroughly enjoying it so far), and Halt and Catch Fire (atmospheric, but they muff a lot of technical details and the MacMillan character seems a straight ripoff of Don Draper). However, that’s all about to go by the wayside for two reasons: my “pre-order” list at Amazon is about to blow up with new books, and the World Cup is starting today.
- Hopefully the airplane will be fixed in time for our scheduled trip to Perrysburg. If not, second prize is the Fathers’ Day Weekend Inferno at Anaheim Chili.
