    The test claims I'm easy to get along with. I have my doubts about that. Maybe in social situations, but I'll bet I'd be tough to live with. Too used to being alone.

    November, 2015: An activist chanting Black Lives Matter at one of Trump’s rallies was beaten by his supporters, prompting Trump to remark, “Maybe he should have been roughed up, because it was absolutely disgusting what he was doing.” February, 2016: Regarding hecklers at his rallies while on the campaign trail, Trump suggested that his fans, “knock the crap out of them, would you? Seriously," he said. "OK, just knock the hell. I promise you I will pay for the legal fees.” February, 2016: When a protester was taken out of a Trump rally, Trump remarked, “He's walking out with big high-fives, smiling, laughing. I'd like to punch him in the face, I'll tell you.” August, 2016: Trump suggested that “second amendment people” could stop his rival for the Presidency, Hillary Clinton, from appointing judges. Given that the second amendment states citizens have the right to bear arms, this was commonly understood to be a suggestion that his supporters assassinate her. July, 2017: Trump remarked to policemen that they should not worry about injuring suspects and “please don’t be too nice.” (Borrowed from Harper's Bazaar, too busy to look further.) Forgive me if I hold the president to a higher standard than the rank and file.

    I'm pretty sure most people think I'm a pain. Most aspects of most people are impossible to measure accurately with tests, in my opinion. I don't think tests are to be taken very seriously, especially not this sort. It's just for fun, if you find this kind of thing fun. Me, I just like to see what they're gonna say. If nothing else it's some insight into the way other people (namely the test maker) think.

    Kind of interesting, yeah. But as usual with such quizzes, I found myself wanting to qualify many of my answers. Also, I could name several people who clearly consider me a pain in the posterior. In some cases it's apparently because I failed to fulfill their unstated expectations, in some others it's because they take me literally when I'm just joking, and in yet other cases it's because I really can be a pain in the posterior. And finally -- how many truly difficult people actually think of themselves that way? And if they don't, then how could the quiz determine that they're difficult? OK, I know a few people who'd probably give answers that I'd consider pretty accurate. But many others, not so much.

    I think this sums it up nicely. You don't have to advocate violence, you just have to light a match in a room full of bombs.

    I must be tough to live with, having ticked off several roommates. The secret to Alex and me getting along is apparently that we're well aware of our differences, so we try to make allowances for them (and sometimes succeed). For example, we do NOT work well together, so if we're doing a joint project, the best system is that he does one part over there and I do another part over here and then we put them together with as little interaction as possible.

    It's not just the one speech, Carol. Trump has been fomenting this kind of behavior since the day he started running for office, if not before. He could have stopped talking the way he does at any point, but instead he chose to continue an us vs. them approach. I've seen unedited videos of his speeches; the media is not putting words in his mouth. He DOES use inflammatory language, and he DOES incite hatred towards elected officials (as well as many other people). A more balanced person may take his rantings with a grain of salt, but not everyone is as open minded as you are. Some were bound to be riled up to the point of violence, and he did nothing --- NOTHING --- to counteract that. I'm on the fence about impeachment. On the one hand, I think Trump is evil and should be punished for being who he is. On the other hand, I don't see what good it will do, he's opened Pandora's box, the ills he's unleashed will only feed on his "martyrdom." And on the third hand, I'd rather see Congress get on with the business of fixing this country rather than continuing to split it apart. But even if that means letting Trump get away without even a slap on the hand? I don't know. Some betrayals are too big to overlook, maybe this is one of them.

    Belated Happy New Year, everyone. It's sure gotten off to a rocky start. There IS good news, though ... several of my acquaintances have already gotten the vaccine, or are about to. Hopefully we are finally turning the corner on this thing.

    We've been watching Star Trek: The Animated Series from the early 70's, and heaven help me, the theme music keeps popping into my head. The overall intro starts out copying the original-series intro, with (a poor imitation of) the four familiar notes, followed by Kirk's standard voice-over. Note that just as he's saying "where no man has gone before," the Enterprise flies by -- sideways. And immediately after that, the music starts up (making no pretense whatsoever of resembling the Original Series music, because it's a Saturday-morning cartoon):
