I hurt my shin this morning. I should've iced it when I got back but I was too tired and took a nap instead.
It was still quite sore at noon but the pain has now dissipated.

Today I confronted someone about a screwup. It wasn't monumental or anything, but I noticed they'd been going at it for a while. And if somebody didn't say anything, they'd never stop.
I don't understand why some people are too proud to admit they messed up. If you don't own up to your wrongdoings, then there's no way to move forward.
I know he's in a foul mood and will try to stir a fight with me the first chance that he gets.
That would be another mistake.

My brother and I talked about the current economic crisis. We're both in agreement that things are not going to get better. I think too many people are focused on political disagreements and fail to notice that they're all sitting in the same boat. And that boat is sinking. It doesn't matter if you're liberal or conservative, black or white, democrat or republican, pro-abortion or anti-abortion, feminist or misogynist - none of these subject matters will be relevant because the biggest issue they'll be facing is financial disparity.
The rich keep getting richer, and the middle class keep getting poorer.
I don't know if people have noticed, but most of the news outlets are all conglomerated into one or two giant companies. The entire news media is owned and controlled by a handful of people. And it is in the best interests of these people to keep feeding the general masses controversial issues to keep them bickering and fighting amongst themselves while the rich people plunder away all their assets.

They want to take away your voices and your guns and anything you could possibly use against them because they know, when the economy crashes, the poor people will do whatever they can to survive.

People who say violence doesn't solve problems have no idea what the future has in store for them. You will be forced into violence because there will be no other option.

Intelligent people might want to study the economic crisis in Sri Lanka.
No country's too developed to hit that kind of rock bottom. It only takes a bunch of corrupt politicians to drive a country back into an era of the great depression.
Look at Lebanon.
I bet when Lebanon hit rock bottom, nobody in Sri Lanka thought, "That's going to be us a few months from now!"
And it doesn't matter how much money you have in the banks because the banks will refuse to give it to you. Sounds like a joke, but it isn't.

Nobody in Russia thought the war was going to last this long. Just like most people around the globe didn't think the war in Ukraine would drive their own gas and food prices up!
Yet here we are.
And it's only going to get worse.

When it comes down to it, the strong will survive, and the weak will be eliminated. Whoever thinks money makes man mighty hasn't been confronted by a hooded stranger in the middle of a dark alley.
Gaddafi was mighty powerful, wasn't he? Yet he was grabbed in broad daylight and shot like a street dog.
