When Is It Time To Say Enough is Enough.

I heard that question in a movie once. It went like this: If you love someone, truly love them, when is it time to say enough is enough? The correct answer is never and I hope that is the way you feel about my extended absences from posting.
Do ya truly love me?

I have been doing Alwyn Cosgrove's program from his New Rules of Lifting For Life and I am almost finished with a full 12 weeks, rare for me to complete a program, but since I have been making my bed every morning I feel like a new man.

Why Are Young People so Weird?

     I was talking to a young person on the phone today and I got the sense that he did not have any idea how to interact on the machine. It was as if he were on another planet. There seemed to be several things going on while he talked and he did not have any filters so all the events occurred at the same time and this confused him.

     I think it has something to do with the concept of multi-tasking. The idea that they are capable of doing several things at once and actually making any one of those things work has taken over. The simple truth is that no one is good at multi-tasking. There are those who can do several low level tasks at the same time but none of them will be done well.

     I am convinced that this is why they are strange. Their world requires that they be connected via the device at all times but then never tells them how to go about it and it drives them crazy and then they get weird.
     I am not 100% convinced that older people are that much better because, now, they are adopting the habits of younger people and, in my opinion, failing miserably.

     The point of this whole thing well, there isn't any point. Just me taking up your valuable time to rant about how strange I think young people are.
