    No Guinness tonight as it is Thursday; however, Friday will be a different story. I have a splitting headache that starts at the front of my left eye, circles behind my ear, and goes down the side of my left neck. My wife cooked something with Sulfites on accident and this is what happens to me when I consume too many sulfites. Thus, I have moved to a quiet room, cued up some of Bill's music, and started the meditation process to let it go away. Distraction also helps.

    Anybody seen Rebel? Does he know?

    I once played a computer game called Might or Magic. It placed the quintessential forces of muscle vs. magic against each other and let the player choose which to conquer the undead. That was a long time ago.

    I've been spinning some new theories around in my head. I've had the benefit of a vacation to refresh my batteries and the subsequent banning (behind me now Bill, don't worry) to test some of my new thoughts. This theory involves social media and my limited experiences with it. Is it better to have a social network that runs from bottom to top with the members controlling the content or is it better to have a social media from top to bottom where there is a supreme being that others must answer to?

    Let me quickly add that this has nothing to do with TNET or its moderators. As all social medias must have moderator, rules, and regulations whether they are top down or bottom to tops. I am simply referring to the content of the media and whether it is produced from the bottom up or the up down.

    The difference may seem slight at first; but upon further inspection can have profoundly various results. Some of you may have noticed that I am making a not so subtle analogy to government. Dictatorship vs. democracy. Ha! Who missed it? Be honest.

    However, this is not about politics, it is just a simple analogy to social media. Just as Orson Wells merely wrote a book about pigs running a farm. I digress, back to subject. In an ideal social media network the content would be created by the members and then regulated from the top. This is the conclusion that I have reached in the last couple of days. In a non-ideal social media network the top would control what people talked about and when. The participants in the latter example would be nothing more than pawns to allow their voices to further the goals of the ones asking the questions.

    I am proud to be a part of this network that allows me to ask my own questions and allows you, my friends, to give your own answers freely. Yes, it is a privately funded site. Yes, we are limited to what we discuss. However, for the most part we are allowed to discuss within reason, without fear of reprimand, without fear of being banned without an explanation.

    Freedom, we all desire it. In a functioning society nobody is every 100% free. We must have rules and regulations. All desire the minimum restrictions on themselves; and, all desire the maximum regulations on others effecting their freedoms. Truly, a conundrum, without an answer across 5000-6000years of history.

    I ramble. I apologize. My Headache still persists, so I will seek out other threads to exercise the rights afforded to me by TNET. Allow me to finish this humble post with a few simple statements. 1. Thank you TNET for your understanding. 2. Thank you to all my friends for allowing me to learn through you. 3. Thank you to TH for his wisdom. 4. HCB..."they are coming for you, there is no way out, they are coming." - Gandalf, The Fellowship of the Ring.

    "THE UNDEAD"! Hmmm, don't you know that WE are SPIRITS having HUMAN EXPERIENCES, good, bad, and ugly...? There is NO "DEATH"... just TRANSFORMATION. Myth or Magic; maybe BOTH!

    I thought it was safe to come back home to Tnet.
    That's why I lurked.
    Certain people stopped posting on Tnet and I assumed that it was safe to come back.
    I've a fragile mind..

    Like another post said, you can't predict them or prevent them...we can sure try!
    Nerdy 2+2 people like myself figure their mind out and then let the proper authorities deal with it.

    Your subconscious tells you something is amiss ?
    Ever notice when you are on yutube you get recommended videos that are supposedly trending with 10 views.. that's a under the radar algorithm targeting you specifically
    It wants your comments and likes to the comments ( farce ) that is already there!

    A tip from a nerd.
