That Rand Paul assault was a little more serious than it sounded at first. Must be one of those Trump tweet radicalized right wingers I hear so much about. oh wait...

I've seen some of these appear in my daughter's feed on YTK. There was one that looked like some kind of game play recording of a virtual "Operation" game where you were operating on Elsa and Anna (frozen). And one with Twilight Sparkle (my little pony) being poisoned to death and then resurrected only to begin attempting to eat the brains of other characters. Fortunately if you as a parent are good about blocking the videos when they show up, eventually the algo learns to show your kids other things.

I just came across this article about my wife's friend who killed her two kids before committing suicide a while back. Man. I hadn't thought about it in a while. The loneliness...fuck, it's palpable. How do you fix the hopelessness of long term loneliness? How can there be any comfort when you have no one? It makes me hurt just to think about it. God. I feel so bad for her. I can only imagine the pain she was in.

I have a certain amount of empathy for anyone who decides to take their life but no comfort and constant loneliness? What a load of horse shit coming from a mother of two. And then to kill the kids too?

Kids are not the same thing as an adult companion. Come on.

I would have hoped her connection to her children meant more to her than randoms on match.com

If it helps, she was very thin

This is one of the biggest drivers of gun deaths in the US...

But how do you deal with that emotional state? It's hard to make new "good" friends as you get older. It really is. thinking about it, most of my friends for a decade plus. If they were gone, I wouldn't even know where to start rebuilding.

At 43, I'm kind of in that boat now. Most of the people I consider close friends don't live anywhere near me, but if I moved back to where they were, I'm afraid things wouldn't be the same.

God, this is too true. I'm literally a country away from my friends I knew growing up and as such we all fell apart. I talk to one of them anymore and that's only at various times on twitter.

Locally I only have my immediate family (wife and kid) plus my in-laws. It doesn't help that I'm an introvert who really hates talking to people to get to know them. Oddly, I'm great when it comes to talking to people I won't interact with much, it's just bridging that gap that's tough.

I'm green according to the team building bullshit that we had to do a couple months ago:

Have any of you guys considered killing your wife and kids to help solve this issue?

I have both. Sometimes I envy people like you.

I wouldn't tell you if I had and that's part of the loneliness, feeling like there's no one who can help you.

But after a few hours, I get lonely and need someone to yell my name a few times or start the laundry when I'm jamming.

See. There is more than one way to never be happy again.

I hope we always have each other to compare sadness with.
