I know your questions in the 2nd paragraph are perhaps rhetorical, but I haven't posted a in a good palaver since ya sent me to "timeout"--I know you guys can only take me in small doses 😆
First, though, I meant to comment when you posted the Rules Update, but Mr. ADD...and 17 kittens took over:
𝙎𝙞𝙣𝙘𝙚 𝙬𝙝𝙚𝙣 𝙄 𝙛𝙞𝙧𝙨𝙩 𝙨𝙩𝙖𝙧𝙩𝙚𝙙 𝙘𝙤𝙢𝙥𝙪𝙩𝙚𝙧𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙞𝙣 1978 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙝𝙖𝙫𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙙 𝙢𝙖𝙣𝙮 ❞𝙬𝙖𝙧𝙚𝙯 𝙧𝙪𝙡𝙚𝙨,❞ 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙪𝙥𝙙𝙖𝙩𝙚𝙙 𝙎𝙖𝙣𝙚𝙩 𝙍𝙪𝙡𝙚𝙨 𝙖𝙧𝙚 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝘽𝙀𝙎𝙏...𝙑𝙀𝙍𝙔 𝘽𝙀𝙎𝙏 𝙧𝙪𝙡𝙚 𝙨𝙚𝙩 𝙄❜𝙫𝙚 𝙚𝙫𝙚𝙧 𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙙. No bullshit--VERY BEST. There was some serious time put into those!🤘
Let me comment on this by example--in the form of dumbassery:
𝘐 𝘫𝘶𝘴𝘵 𝘤𝘢𝘯'𝘵 𝘶𝘯𝘥𝘦𝘳𝘴𝘵𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘸𝘩𝘺 𝘴𝘰𝘮𝘦 𝘱𝘦𝘰𝘱𝘭𝘦 𝘧𝘪𝘳𝘴𝘵 𝘩𝘢𝘷𝘦 𝘵𝘰 𝘥𝘦𝘤𝘭𝘢𝘳𝘦 𝘦𝘷𝘦𝘳𝘺𝘰𝘯𝘦 𝘦𝘭𝘴𝘦 𝘢𝘯 𝘪𝘥𝘪𝘰𝘵...
Weeeellll, about that. I have the ULTIMATE example you can share ANYTIME someone wants to be the "cock-of-the-walk" and strut about calling people "idiots" because they think they are smarter and better.
My "smarts" background:
👉 High IQ? 148-160+. ☑️ (IQ really means "idiot quotient"--LOL!)
👉 Well-read and educated? 1000's of books! And college before colleges turned into "woke" thinkless-tanks!☑️
👉 Generally regarded as the "smartest mofo" in the room? Oh, yeah!! ☑️☑️☑️
I was changing #1 of the 4 cat shit-litter bins and chatting away with Da Boyz Upstairs (waaaaaay upstairs👆). I probably had some comeuppance, and They said, "𝙃𝙚𝙮, 𝙙𝙪𝙢𝙗𝙖𝙨𝙨, 𝙬𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙖𝙗𝙤𝙪𝙩 #1 𝙨𝙝𝙞𝙩-𝙡𝙞𝙩𝙩𝙚𝙧 𝙗𝙞𝙣❓ 𝙒𝙝𝙖𝙩❜𝙨 𝙨𝙥𝙚𝙘𝙞𝙖𝙡 𝙖𝙗𝙤𝙪𝙩 𝙞𝙩❓" Then They revealed it to me:
𝗙𝗼𝗿 𝟭𝟴 𝘆𝗲𝗮𝗿𝘀, 𝗺𝗲 (𝗠𝗿. 𝗦𝗺𝗮𝗿𝘁𝘆𝗽𝗮𝗻𝘁𝘀) 𝗵𝗮𝗱 𝗮 𝗰𝗮𝘁 𝘀𝗵𝗶𝘁-𝗹𝗶𝘁𝘁𝗲𝗿 𝗯𝗶𝗻 𝗳𝘂𝗹𝗹 𝗼𝗳 𝗰𝗹𝗮𝘆 𝘀𝗵𝗶𝘁-𝗹𝗶𝘁𝘁𝗲𝗿 𝗮𝗯𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝟯𝟬-𝟱𝟬𝗰𝗺 𝗳𝗿𝗼𝗺 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗮𝗶𝗿 𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗮𝗸𝗲 𝘃𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝗼𝗳 𝗺𝘆 𝗳𝘂𝗿𝗻𝗮𝗰𝗲. This is the air intake (technically "return air") where the furnace sucks in air, heats it, and send it a-hoppin' throughout the house.
Is it bad to do what I did? FUCK, YEAH! Only by the mercy of Da Boyz Upstairs that I'm even here typing this! I should have been looong dead years ago and dropped like a sack of rocks.
For the last 18 years, I had complained about the dust in the house, developed terrible allergies, and my cats developed "feline asthma." Do a Google Search for "cat litter dust hazards" or go to [Login to see the link]
TO MAKE MATTERS WORSE, I worked in architecture for 27 years and have been a licensed architect for over 13 years, and yeah--I designed heating, ventilation, and cooling layouts (HVAC)...but missed that cat shit-litter box for 18 years.
Why ramble on about this? The next time someone is calling others "idiots" or other shit, or you find yourself doing doing the same, post that example and tell them (or remember for yourself):
☑️𝗖𝗵𝗲𝗰𝗸 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝘀𝗵𝗶𝘁-𝗹𝗶𝘁𝘁𝗲𝗿 𝗯𝗼𝘅, 𝗺𝘂𝘁𝗵𝗮𝗳𝘂𝗰𝗸𝗲𝗿❗
😂 🤣😂 🤣
Okay....I'll go back to being quiet 😸
