I'm reading the original Megatrends. It's a book from the early 80's. One of the things it mentions will be very useful in the future is speaking more than one language because the world is getting smaller and communication is going ot be happening with people all around the world and you don't want to be limited to just your own native tongue.

Meanwhile, in America, in 2017, we're still bitching that other people don't know English or that their English is "broken" or that they need to speak better while holding up protest signs that look like they came from a professional joke factory.

Sigh. Oh well, I'd like to think I should have read this book in 82 when it came out but I don't think 11 year old Joe would have found it quite as interesting.

Well, we're raising our kid with three languages. I'll let you know how that pans out.

I thought of you when I read this quote from "Letters from a Stoic: Epistulae Morales AD Lucilium" by Lucius Annaeus Seneca -

"What hinders us most of all is that we are too readily satisfied with ourselves; if we meet with someone who calls us good men, or sensible men, or holy men, we see ourselves in his description, not content with praise in moderation, we accept everything that shameless flattery heaps upon us, as if it were our due. We agree with those who declare us to be the best and wisest of men, although we know that they are given to much lying. And we are so self-complacent that we desire praise for certain actions when we are especially addicted to the very opposite. Yonder person hears himself called "most gentle" when he is inflicting tortures, or "most generous" when he is engaged in looting, or "most temperate" when he is in the midst of drunkenness and lust. Thus it follows that we are unwilling to be reformed, just because we believe ourselves to be the best of men."

Story
Tagline
Long time role player of various games that started with the old FASERIP from Marvel Super Heroes to more modern games like the dreaded 4the dition Dungeons and Dragons.
Introduction

I've lived in Chicago most of my life. I've been a man whose slowly but surely coming to realize that going out to eat is killing me with the massive amount of sodium fast food places put in everything. I'm relatively normal in that I work, enjoy the old social media and have a few nerd hobbies like reading about historical warfare and painting miniatures and playing role playing games. I'm old enough to remember when a phone was something attached to the wall and grew up with a very real fear of getting nuked by Russia.

This apartment complex suffers a bit from having tenents who stay up all night. For example, at Midnight on a Sunday, they are out being loud on the back porch. Trying to get any resolution from ASAP and you may find yourself doing as others have and moving out.
