FTMOS #14
The other day, Maggie May comes up to me and with a completely straight face says:
"Did you know that if you get too hot, your heart will melt, and then you'll die?"

On the potentially slim chance that i am...
So, in the rare case you are in a bar with me, AND i have been drinking, AND there's Karaoke going on, AND you have successfully convinced me to sing, then these are Marky Mark approved songs which i have vetted and would be willing to sing.
For the record.


Tiffany - I think were alone now
Bon Jovi - livin' on a prayer
Bonnie Tyler - Total eclipse of the heart
Top gun - You've lost that lovin' feeling
Tom Jones - Delila
Depeche mode - pour some sugar on me
Men without hats - Safety dance
Journey - don't stop believing



Now go and cover your ears.

Hermosa Rewind
I've started taking SmackFest volleyball classes again.

This crazy time warp throws me right back 10 years into the past.
Feeling the soft sand in-between my toes...
Playing some amazing volleyball whilst getting awesome exercise...
Hanging out with totally chill people with great vibes...

And of course. The sunsets.



It's good to be back. Never-Never land still hasn't lost its touch.

The Rabbit Hole
The internet is an amazing and wonderful place. It is also ENDLESS. Enter onto the scene YouTube, a vast treasure trove of videos spanning the entire possible spectrum of humanity, conveniently linked to content that a magical algorithm has determined you will find interesting. Unfortunately, it's a little bit TOO accurate.

I call this the RABBIT HOLE.

I start my adventure thinking, oh, perhaps a video or two is all, at around 9:30 last night.

Tucker. Finding idiots and blowing their minds. Very addicting.
Naturally, next up would be
Followed by a little one-on-one
With a rebuttal by Steven Crowder
Ben Shapiro & Joe Rogan tie that in with more current events
Which leads into the MMA fights they're referring to
Which naturally could only lead to
And then degrades quickly into
Which has a motorcyclist as the protagonist, and of course leads to
And then just devolves into people being fed up with bad drivers
And naturally, the police get involved
Followed by bullies getting their just reward
Followed by people celebrating too early and failing
Which everyone knows translates directly into chess??
...now getting a bit more into the strategy
And somehow a totally random story about an amazing physics teacher??
Which then leads out of the darkness and into the light of humanity
Which, naturally, is then a reminder that there are also bad people out there

A this point, i'm rubbing my eyes. It is 3:24 am. I have been swindled again, and somehow just lost 6 hours of my life. All i have to show for it is a single chess move to avoid.

Heed my warning, fellow sailors: The YouTube Sirens are not your friends!

Stay away. For the love of GOD. STAY AWAY!!
