Although I am pretty open when it comes to the anonymous internet, I try to lead a fairly compartmentalized life.  Some peolpe know me as X.  Others know me as Y.  Not many people really know everything I have going on.  It tends to work out for the best that way. 

I agree with Evil Twin on leading a compartmentalized life. Not everybody needs to know what you're up to, and the less people who know it all, the better. If you have a few good friends and family you can confide in, you're doing pretty well. There is no need, IMO, to bring more scrutiny upon yourself than necessary.

Don't forget, in all of that good music that the Grateful Dead need to be included.  Robert Hunter was a excellent writer and "Terrapin Station" is a pretty cool album.   "Dire Wolf", "Standing on the Moon", "Uncle John's Band"....Jerry Garcia is under appreciated as a guitarist.  Sorry, I had to stop lurking to share....

I wouldn't want to be 14 again for the world..and it wasn't easy when my kids went through it too..although I swear I can't remember what the fights were about, just that they were doozies.

I can't understand why on earth a parent would not want a child to spend their own money on a computer at least, and since there are gun scholarships, one should be allowed..but parents aren't perfect, far from it. Now, I know I have prolly disillusioned you for life, but there it is; parents aren't perfect.

OH and if we are going to talk music, I can't believe it took someone so long to mention CCR. I have a  lot of simiiliar tastes to what has already been posted here, but also have a PASSION for the Alan Parsons Project.

It isn't IQ.  The large majority have taken "mama's Little Helper" or "The Six Pac" and are simply maintaining their lifestyle of meaningless distractions.  Just about everyone I know seems to be on one or another "chronic illness Medication", which makes me wonder if there is a second Soma ingredient in all of them.........

Long training on "follow the leader" and that is usually what the media presents to them, Mainly TV. Disincentives to being a true thinker are also there, I run into when I am working all the time too.  I have had customers complaining of their huge electric bills, but when I point them to websites with answers, they never look at the new stuff.  Thees are some of the "movers and shakers" too!  Kind of scary.

The USA is in a badly rutted road and does not realize it! I am afraid it will take a figurative "right sized" meteor strike to wake people up if it doesn't kill all of us outright.
