Re: senility vs narcissism

Re: adults pass it down to the children

Prick? Dick?

I really don't have a clue, I don't live in the UK nor the U$A and not a native speaker of English.

Here in The Netherlands we have some detective-series (books/TV) with the main character yielding the name Dick de Cock. Met C-O-C-K. De Kok is a regular Dutch name, lol.

The writer must have had some degree of knowledge of the english language. BIG lol.

Re: We hear these stories all the time

As a person with psoriasis I've met some (anti)social situations. But I cannot hide the fact that I was repulsed by a young boy, in Tanzania, who had to suffer the same fate. I am prejudiced against people who have the same 'abnormality' as myself. BAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!

He was in a way worse position, me having access to the best health care and medication to improve my looks.

I have really strong opinions, but I came to the conclusion that one is entitled to ones opinion/feeling/emotion, one just has to have realise that one doesn't have to act as an asshole towards others just because of ones own biases.

Just walk away.

My parents are severe narcissists, no cause to be a jackass to them, but I chose to not see them anymore in my lifetime. It is hurtfull to them, but I shield myself to the hurt they cause ME by avoiding their presence.

Being a human/homo sapiens, is just that, we are conscious of our own shit.

Re: Radio mic use

We, here in the land of nether, we had a frequency allocation change. Some years ago. I worked at a sound/PA company. Owner joyfully continued to use the old mics/frequencies.

I do not have any contact over 6 GHz, or elsewise with the phenomenon.
