frogs

Actually, I have nothing to say about frogs. But I couldn't think of a better title.

I just listened to a TED talk about mental illness, such as psychopathy. It's not your average TED talk. There's nothing anything specific that the speaker is trying to say. But it's mighty thought-provoking all around. Give 'er the ol' listen. http://www.ted.com/talks/jon_ronson_strange_answers_to_the_psychopath_test?language=en#

The same chap who gave that talk wrote a long article recently in the New York Times, about what happens when a bunch of people gang up on another person, on Twitter, say. Or in other ways. What happens to the psyche of that person. Well worth the read: http://www.nytimes.com/2015/02/15/magazine/how-one-stupid-tweet-ruined-justine-saccos-life.html?smid=nytcore-ipad-share&smprod=nytcore-ipad&_r=0

Life here in Sitka is rainy, which I mean literally and not metaphorically. It's very nice for introverts, because without sun you don't really feel any sort of moral obligation to go outside. So that is nice!

And that is all I have to say today.
