"'Chaos has killed me, son,' you said, 'But the victory of unpredictability is hollow. Men imagine, in their pride, that they can predict life's each event, and govern nature and govern each other with rules of unyielding iron. Not so. There will always be men like you, my son, who will do the things no one else predicts or can control. I tried to tame the sun and failed; no one knows what is at its fiery heart; but you will tame a thousand suns, and spread mankind so wide in space that no one single chance, no flux of chaos, no unexpected misfortune, will ever have power enough to harm us all. For men to be civilized, they must be unlike each other, so that when chaos comes to claim them, no two will use what strategy the other does, and thus, even in the middle of blind chaos, some men, by sheer blind chance, if nothing else, will conquer.

"'The way to conquer the chaos which underlies all the illusionary stable things in life, is to be so free, and tolerant, and so much in love with liberty, that chaos itself becomes our ally; we shall become what no one can foresee; and courage and inventiveness will be the names we call our fearless unpredictability....'"

-Helion Prime (The Golden Transcendence; from The Golden Age trilogy by John C. Wright)

I thought the fly problem was just in my back yard. But then I moved and they followed me. I guess this is widespread.
Some pest control companies say business is way up this year as people deal with more ants, fleas and rodents. The vermin boom is blamed on the drought and warmer than usual winter.

Beer not working. Switching to guided meditation. This one seemed pretty good. Any suggestions for my next try? Anxiety seems to have me by the throat and I'm willing to try anything.

On the plus side, I'm now wearing some stylish face masks. I told my daughter to call me Sub-Zero from now on. She didn't get it.

Allergies and suicide. I started finding articles on this topic while researching mental health. These articles are using science to unravel the mystery of seasonal suicides. Here, let me help: Allergies are HELL. Absolute, pure, unadulterated HELL. This is not hyperbole. This kind of suffering can lead an otherwise happy person to eating a bullet. So please, stop trying to figure it out. You're insulting the people who are struggling not to lose their minds.
The rates of depression, anxiety, and sleep disturbance (suicide risk factors) are greater in patients with allergic rhinitis than in the general population. The rate of allergy is also greater in patients with depression. Preliminary data suggest that ...

This is true. On top of it, I'm pretty sure medications like Claritin can cause or exacerbate panic attacks.

I've been scouring the Internet for help with anxiety attacks. Even purchased a self-help video series. So far, it all boils down to this.

"We will take a corner too fast, and organic rutabagas will come jetting out of our messenger bags like missiles. They will fly through your driver’s side window, shatter the brand new laminated safety glass, hit you in the temple, damage your brain, and make you a vegan. The rutabagas will explode into shards of starchy shrapnel, and they will pierce the arms and legs of your family, and they will become vegan also."

Too many people in a hurry to be the first one at the red light
I get dirty looks constantly when the MORONS ate behind me and I'm not going as fast as they want but they catch a single traffic light I travel the same roads weekly as most of us that work do but no one can figure out to pace themselves
I ride my harley and at times have made others catch lights or even better lock them up in traffic on the freeway sometimes you have to teach people how to function yeah it ticks the idiots off but no one ever pulls over when I offer or ill slow down and damned if they won't slow down to keep from getting by me but I get a laugh out of it all big and bad until you call them out

I've known people dealing with anxiety. But I never really understood. Googling "anxiety" returns pictures of people who look really worried, but now I'm experiencing it myself, I'm Googling "buried alive" and finding pictures that match the feeling. If you know somebody who tells you they're having an anxiety attack, be kind. You may easily be the last thread they're hanging on by. #psa

It''ll pass, homes. I don't mean to be glib. I mean, for me, it has always helped to realize that. Everything.... everything ...is temporary.

5 stars for this location, -1 star for the company. The service center was friendly, clean, modern, fast; overall my visit to cancel service was pleasant and smooth. I could not have asked for anything more. As for the $80/month just for mediocre and unreliable Internet service with awful customer service, I'm afraid the expletives will get my review taken down.

I've been here three times now for my 2003 Baja. Service is honest, friendly, and quick. I dropped in unannounced last week as my car was shaking and making horrible noises on the freeway. They fixed it while I waited and got me back on the road for no charge. I won't take my Baja anywhere else. When I get my next Subie, I'll bring it here for all service needs.

I made and paid for a hitch installation appointment two weeks ago. I arrived 10 minutes early and stood in an empty store waiting for any employee to come in to help me. Finally someone came in, and told me the hitch installer is on his lunch break and I'll have to come back in 45 minutes. They offered nothing in the way of a rebate to compensate me. Do not waste your time here. Update: As I stand here waiting for the installer to come back, I'm listening to the employees trying to figure out how to make a truck reservation estimate. Their suggestion to the customer is to go buy a car.

Excellent food but be prepared to wait all night even when there are only a few tables seated. They don't seem to understand service.

I arrived after they closed, but the owner was super cool and helped me out. I went in to spend $100 and he knew it, but after hearing my problem, he fixed me up for $7.50. I'll be back for more. Thanks Tim!

I've been to the Stanford Inn several times, including my wedding night. It's heaven on a hillside. The atmosphere is warm and inviting from the rooms to the dining area. I love the food and look forward to the sea palm strudel weeks ahead of my arrival. For those who think the dining is too expensive and the service too slow, please consider IHOP instead, leaving the soul-replenishing dishes and relaxed atmosphere of the Stanford Inn to those who can appreciate it. After breakfast, there is nothing quite like a lovely stroll past the organic gardens to visit with the llamas. On stormy nights, there is no substitute for a tropical dip in the pool inside the solarium. The only thing I would like to see improved at the Stanford Inn is the wi-fi signal to the guest rooms, so that I could make phone calls over wi-fi on my Republic Wireless phone. There is almost no cellular coverage there, but a strong wi-fi signal would go a long way toward solving the problem for tech-savvy guests.
