    #42 @Mark Anthony - I am saying something similar -- although not in regard to "writing", but rather in regard to intellectual exchange and conversation, which are not the same thing. Not to nit pick or put to fine a point on it, a lot of people on social media write and publish, but what I have learned is that a miniscule percentage of those are actually interested in conversation. Thanks again for reading and commenting.

    This reminds me of something! I have facilitated numerous therapeutic groups. A common ground rule is "Challenge the behaviour , not the person" You see, in order to change , develop and grow certain, unhelpful and counterproductive, behaviours need to be challenged and, ideally, changed. This is not a personal attack on the person and is meant to help. It sounds like you are saying something similar @Phil Friedman albeit in relation to writing

    #40 Believe me, Dale Masters, I will never call you "sir". Don't feel bad about the hair though, it sounds like your describing my personal balding pattern. But let me tell you a story. I knew I was getting old(er) when my duck-and-dodge line stopped working hen the Girl Scouts came door to door soliciting for their fund raising campaigns. The line I used, until it stopped working was "No, sorry girls, but my Mommy's not here right now.

    @Phil Friedman First, I must tell you that those who know me know I don't flatter. To me, flattery is both insincere and a waste of time. That being said, I believe that the term used for someone like you is "Renaissance Man". Also, if you ever find something that works for restoring hair, please let me know. For health reasons, I must keep my hair very short, and the lack of it both at the crown and the forehead is entirely too noticeable (my mother had this problem, but it started in her 70's. I am 57...and sick to death of being called "sir").

    Disagreement and different opinions/ perspectives make for healthy engagement. It is definitely quite boring when everyone agrees... because they are looking for only nice things to say, There are quite a few folks who when they write and publish expect only positive engagement. Having been the recipient of an attack on my integrity as I asked a question on integrity, I discovered a lack of authenticity from a writer. Though I was shocked by the attack, I moved on, avoiding any comments or reading his posts. We were in the same groups. I still hesitate to comment on some posts being guilty of "using kid gloves with fragile egos", but do enjoy a healthy debate as can be expected from some 'ballsy guys'! @Phil Friedman you do make my day when I read the comments and you engagement on many posts - one day I do hope to be as 'ballsy' as you! :-) By the way... excellent post, even better than the first time I read it!

    #62 Yes, Mohammad Azarn Khan, I truly believe that, left to its own devices, the vast majority of humanity would live in peace. I have met only a very few individuals whom I would describe as bad-hearted, and even in those few cases, I believe it was social institutions and related influences that conditioned them to be so. My best to you.

    @Phil Friedman, I bookmarked this post a while ago knowing it would need more than a brief skim. I was right. It was a defining point in history for those of us who were alive then, and hopefully it was not a moment wasted, rather used to help us make decisions to address the issues that would lead to such an act.

    Unfortunately, nations don't seem to learn from history and we have an increased legacy of defining points in history that were driven by hate. You brought out the other facet of behaviour in your story - those that chose to do the right thing (which was protecting you) at the time when all their peers were being motivated by anger. The world (and your life) is better because of their choices that day. May we ourselves emulate them and do the right thing when events give us every justification to act out in anger.

    #14 When a honey bee stings a person, it cannot pull the barbed stinger back out. It leaves behind not only the stinger, but also part of its abdomen and digestive tract, plus muscles and nerves. This massive abdominal rupture kills the honey bee. Honey bees are the only species of bees to die after stinging.

    5 times down. 3 cars, 2 motorcycles. Twice for distracted driving, searching for casettes on the floor including once on the passenger side. One tree, and once into a truck reversing onto the road from nowhere but I was looking elsewhere. Lucky, very lucky. None other hurt either. Too lucky. Since then has been quite a while. Taught the children too. Thank-you for your efforts Dr. Margaret Aranda. Sharing.

    @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD, thank you for sending an extremely important message with your post. I cringe when I see someone driving while talking on their phone. I find it rude as there is no way they can be totally focused on driving. They are jeopardizing the lives of others and I believe most don't see it this way. It's very unfortunate.

    @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD I feel you on this. I have a friend who seems to insist she must make a phone call or text when driving, and it scares me. She also insists on driving fast, which sets my flashbacks in motion. I have spoken to her on many occasions and her response is the same, she drives carefully and nothing will happen. After much lectures she has stopped, and will allow me to drive when we are together, even though I drive quite slowly now (smile) but within the speed limit. I think there should be a universal ban on doing anything while driving. "Hoping someone creates an app which is mandatory for all vehicles, so the car will slow down or shut down if multi tasking is sensed and a report sent to the police station." This is a real pet peeve of mine. I was knocked down while I was standing by a driver who did not look in her rear view mirror while reversing. Maybe we need a hive for safety for life!

    As a long time motorcyclist; I trust none of you in cars. Not a single one. My Grandpa told me the key to riding in traffic was to ride like nobody sees you, and those that do - are aiming for you. Best advice you will ever get, to the two ton + idiot boxes rolling down the road. 40 years of riding and my one accident was from a deer.....that I am still convinced was suicidal. PS my own head trauma accident was because the car infront of me locked their brakes on a wet bridge deck and the Suburban behind me had nowhere to go but into me. RIP 68 CUSTOM BEETLE.

And all the better it got funny at least also. On an all clear signal from my swim in the air to the underwater I cleared. I thought of further explaining, considered it might not be taken accordingly and so let it be on a good note and moved on thinking if we are to meet we will and no need to hurry and voila. Am glad.

    The Russians have one that is a bit vulgar that literally translates as 'Your bucket - not enough rope' Meaning you don't have the smarts to fetch a pail of water properly. The mark didn't know I spoke Russian - and my translator was DLI fresh (they don't teach idioms or pejoratives ) - her eyes were wide with attention when I flipped the table over and told her something along the lines of "a blind fish monger mistaking her for the daily delivery." She was inexplicably more cooperative after that. - Never worked with that translator again.

    Don't take this personally, @Kevin Pashuk, but if you really must throw a chicken at yourself then you're either "daft as a brush" or else "you've got a couple of roos loose in the top paddock, mate". I could go on like this all night, because idioms are coming "faster than a lizard drinking". Better stop there or you'll think I'm "mad as a cut snake". ☺️

    I've learned a lot of them while living in Spain, and I love finding the differences. When we say "speak of the devil" in English, the Spanish version is "speaking of the Roman king." Another favorite is "A buenas horas, mangas verdes" (in good time, green sleeves), which can mean either "too little, too late" or a more sarcastic "better late than never!"

    Gotta love FIGMO! My favourite since, well, dogs were tied with sausages, is a French phrase "pédaler dans le yaourt" - pedalling in yoghurt. Supposedly it means "getting nowhere fast", but I've always felt it really meant spinning my feet on a stationary bike that's immersed in a barrel of thick, frozen Balkan-style yoghurt and bolted to its bottom.

    Here are some of my favorites that I use often. Some picked up working around the military. Go to the mattresses - From the movie The Godfather: Fight

    Broker than a convict - Very broke!

    BFE (Bum F*** Egypt) - Very far away, usually used to describe when parking is scarce and you’ve had to park at the back of the parking lot.

    FIGMO (F*** it, I got my orders) - Military acronym for: Don’t ask me to do anything because I’m transferring out of here! Or; It’s not my problem anymore

    Living the Life of Reilly - Living the highlife, usually associated with gossiping about someone living above their means

    Lives in the Boonies - Lives out in the middle of nowhere, out in the country, far from town

    Horse Feathers - Replaces curse words when you’re around your very religious grandfather! :-)

    Hi Andrea, Thanks for the response, and I see what you mean about its similarity to hypnosis. I actually developed this technique for myself a few years back, which is why I am trying to describe it now. What I did was not hypnosis, though, as I needed to be fully aware of the symbols I was re-associating. Maybe it could be said that I figured out how to come out of a type of hypnosis, though. That seems more accurate.

    Sounds like the basis of cognitive hypnosis to me.

    My husband, who is a mindset coach and hypnotherapist, uses the technique of re-framing perception with relevant, viable positive reinforcement and suggestion to remove negative triggers and associations that lead to phobic, behavioral and emotional reactions.

    There's plenty of scope for this but I'm not a hypnotherapist. You might find something useful at www.mynd.works
