    Here's one that's been coming up. People telling me I shouldn't headbang because of my head injury. Well they better get real worried cause Behemoth, Cannibal Corpse, and Aeon are in town tomorrow! \m/

I know that I don't always succeed, however.
    It really is the worst though.
    There's a guy in my social circle that comes around sometimes and the more alcohol you put in him the worse it gets. He will start speaking in German and just string a bunch of fancy words together. He trys to generally talk "smart".

    It's ridiculous.

You may laugh, but it is science; it's science of the soul -- the only kind you need.

    Good luck, and keep that Yin and Yang in check, you hear?

    Sssssshhh, let it out. Channel your chi energy -- let it flow forth. Open your inner dam.

    There's always bumps in the road. For example:

    Out today for some more medical tests, and the roads are unplowed with another blizzard in progress, second one in a week. Up till now we hadn't had but a few inches of snow all winter.

    The tests go smoothly, at least as much as one would expect, but afterwards they make me stand for 15 minutes, which is how long it took for the legs to give out. The sadists said it was part of the tests.

    So the wife gets me back home through the blinding snow and helps me inside to my wheelchair, which was nice. But now I've got a welt on the side of my face from the wife slapping me. Seems as I started for my bedroom, I ran over her foot.

    So now I'm sitting here posting this with my fingers crossed

    As the "resident" pagan I have something to say about the whole wishy-washy chi/energy/chakra/etc stuff.

    I'm not saying there's anything wrong with believing in whatever you want to believe but most of it revolves around platitudes. "Spells" work because they're psychological. They ritualize a desire which imprints it as being important psychologically. That's how they work. There, the mysticism and "magic" is taken away.

    That said, there's nothing wrong with meditation, prayer, and energy beliefs. There's nothing wrong with burning incense and doing what you can to give yourself that feeling of control and power. If it helps you deal with the scary shit in this world then do it.
