What makes people crowd into a restaurant breaking the isolation rules with their kids with no face masks?


Why did it take me so long to embrace listbuilding and continued to swim upstream like a salmon for years?


Why did I keep trying to fix my self haircut until I was damn near bald when the initial plug would have grown back much faster.

    Not sure what you are referring to - but my guess is they are tired of 'sheltering in place'- their area is opening up - and they believe they are as important as the other people in the 'crowd'.

    My question: Why would you expect people in a RESTAURANT to be wearing masks? So many people i've seen with masks don't seem to 'get' the point of the face covering as they are continually touching/adjusting the outside of the mask with their hands.


    You resisted list building (my guess) because it is 'connected' - you are out in front of people with your list and some of us don't like that part.


    As for your hair - no idea. I've just let mine grow for now. Odd as I had just had about 10 inches of hair cut off just before this pandemic mess.
    Bright side - if you are still staying hoime, no one sees your hair.

    Due to the current pandemic I will no longer be shaking hands or giving hugs. You may wave, bow to me or give me the finger...your choice.

    Well, if the restaurant is open, the isolation rules must have been lifted.

    there are risks to being alive ..yes it might be safe to sit in your house but there is no points for the person with "they got here safely " on their grave stone .

    it not compulsive behaviour .. it is normal healthy human behavior ..

    there are risks to living ..a lot of people understand that and are willing to push for crowd immunity ..

    what people do for work to earn their living ..is how they define themselves to others .. if you have been deemed non essential..and have to now break the law to earn money..there are a lot more risks you will take ..to have a life ..when you see nothing wrong with what you are doing ..but the authorities want to stop you ..

    I have gone through it ..we will probably see a type of anarchy or soft anarchy like the error where alcholol was banned and buying it was breaking the law ..

    Sorry - but judging from news day after day - 'optimism' is the only thingie we are not allowed to have.


    We can have 'false hope' - and 'second thoughts' - and 'worries about...a cure, a treatment, a vaccine, the economy, blah de blah blah'...


    BUT - if you listen carefully, you will notice 'optimism' didn't make the top ten.

      that lack of optimism and fear mongering .. is why many people don't care and would rather just go back to living life and treat catching corona like any other of the many risks that come with day to day life ..

      not all that optimistic for social justice warriors though ..

      do you believe we can just wait and turn the economy back on when the experts deem it safe

      now I am optimistic .. on trying to figure out how to get my hands on some of the 10 Plus trillion dollars the fed is pumping into the economy ..

        Do you believe we can cash a check if we are dead?


        If there was a scale of intelligence I am pretty sure "Herd" is on the South End of it.

        They have little barking dogs that can point the herd of sheep in any direction at any time.


        I am now in Philippines visiting or stranded depending on how you look at it and they were told they could go into a reduced Quarantine Status where I am but the Mayor said we will extend the quarantine as is until after Mass Testing then use the Data we gather to proceed...imagine that.

          so in a country with 109 million people .. where it was a month into the shut down before any testing was done .. and they are up to what tens of thousands .. of tests ..

          the real bar is when people starving start rioting in the street and it looks bad when durete has them shot

              are you willing to walk up to these people and from six feet away .. call them stupid deplorable mindless zombies .. because they want to go back to work to make money and pay their bills .. or is that just something you only have he courage to say online ..

              be a little respectfull of the people who want to go to work and earn money to pay their bills and feed their kids .. or entrepreneurs who want to open their businesses back up before they are banrupted .. because they have been deem unessential .

              maybe the governments should dtop you from making money the way you currently are .. when you are not acctually breaking laws ..

              from personal experience.. it really really sucks ...

                Going to a crowd zombies or not defeats the purpose. But I would rather use a armed drone on people that carry assault weapons to protest saving their lives.

                Trust me have rallies non stop... pack the Wresting stadiums do whatever you do...go go go baby... I am damn sure not stopping anyone. I will have a toast to it actually.

      200 people attending banned religous practices .. that are actually protected by the constitution .

  • One of my all time favorite D.J.s is The Greaseman.

    A shock Jock for sure. He did so many entertaining skits for the Morning Rush Hour. I would be rolling on the floor.

    He would do him and his pappy as rednecks. Clint Eastwood tough guy character as a gay. Sgt Greasmanelli in the middle of combat.

    He had words for sex and pleasing women like Hobble Doo Ga Ga. and Gobble Doo Gee.

    One day I actually met him in a restaurant in Virginia.... D.C, Maryland and Virginia you can go to all 3 in 20 mins!

    But anyway I went up to him and asked him hey Grease have you been hobblin and gobblin?

    He smiled and said "Even as we speak my face is Glistening like a Glazed Doughnut!

    Made my day.

    He has some youtube videos of a few skits still up.

    Then one day I was in utter shock to find he threw his entire Million Dollar career down the toilet with an offensive racial comment that he could not recover from.

    Why would someone put it on the line for a joke and an incredibly offensive one to boot?

      now the manipulation is just called marketing or behavioral economics ..but the more skilled the marketer the less actual manipulaion they need to do ..as the data each person creates is what manipulates the marketing and advertising they will see ,

      on the other hand face book you tube and google and others can manipulate the algorythyms so that they can keep their communities safe from way to edgy ideas ..on the other hand doing that might just draw more attention to those being censored ..

      in the post corona virus world ..that is not going to have the go to school get good grade ..got to college get a good degree to have a good carreer and buy a house ..then eventually retire .. expected life path ..

      it will be the paying customer who manipulates the entire chain or web of supplies ..

      and to delve into real compulsive behaviour .. the video game industry had 120 billion in revenue in 2019 .. much og that revenue coming from micro purchases and free to play games if you play any games at all .. it is basically the spend 2$ no or 5 dollars now .. get diamonds ..

      tha kind of thing .. where 20 years ago .. it was release another 60 dollar game every few years and sell as many as you can .. or 15 years ago with world of warcraft the monthly subscription model ..

        Maybe you trying to be clever....some people getting assassinated for sleeping and jogging.


        I shared a link of "protestors" with a sign that said "Hang Fauci" the lead scientist trying to save their lives.
        Not Down with Fauci, not Get Rid of Fauci, Not Fire Fauci.


        That effectively makes them a Lynch Mob....someone referred to them as Entrepreneurs.

  • A Wave Of Radicalized Influencers Is Mainstreaming COVID-19 Conspiracy Theories

    We should pay attention how we are marketed to. I do all the time.

    I am just a truth seeker. I shared a link in another forum that was having a COVID discussion but it is rather hard to have a discussion on COVID while walking on eggshells and labled as a basher if you mention the guy in charge of the Pandemic!

    The forum owner considered any utterance of the leader of the Pandemic as "Bashing" and bias. Facts..out the window.


    Matter of fact that link I just shared above would be banned on his forum with a discussion on the exact subject.

    But hey his forum his rules. I can dig it. I really rather focus on Entrepreneurship.

    What he really did is show his own Bias and he went down several pegs in my book.

    A shame because I really held him in high regard before that.

      Huh? There's a leader of the pandemic?

        Read the whole thread a few times it qualifies as a case study .

        So what do you classify useing armed drowns against protestors carrying long guns but being peacfull not shooting anyone .

        To protest extreme lock down measures ..if you view one guy holding a sign hang fauchi ..as a lunch mob.

        Then you wanting to use an armed drone on protestor makes you a terrorist and everything put online goes into a thousand different databases for intelligence agencies

          I have a habit of sharing Success stories of Entrepreneurs to inspire others. I can weave internet marketing into any conversation with a person of any age or culture.

          I sometimes want to help others more than myself..and I have to work on that one.

          There are others who will wake up and go to an Internet Marketing forum for YEARS with ZERO intentions of ever marketing a damn thing. Maybe they want to be a Gardener. More power to them. Free Country.

          But one can at least make a one page website and put a link in their sig and send people to a great book they read and get paid for it rather than the compulsive nature of trying to find a cloud on a sunny day.


          Every damn day.

        That is funny because you are right. The person mentioning off topic was seldom on it. But a great example OF IT.

        So it is a win all around in my humble.

        I knew this was obvious bait below but I took it anyway....and the result was the thread topic.

        "are you willing to walk up to these people and from six feet away .. call them stupid deplorable mindless zombies .. because they want to go back to work to make money and pay their bills .. or is that just something you only have he courage to say online .."

        The people angry now were angry before COVID.
        The people who think they have reason to display assault weapons will continue when COVID is gone for the next trivial reason. These people display Nooses. It is obvious what they are even if they seem clueless to it themselves.

        If you put all the angry people on an island together with all the freedoms they desire it would be Lord of The Flies in 30 mins.

      If I was back over in the Philippines and my girlfriend or wife suddenly wanted chocolate ice cream it would take a small amount of manipulation for her to get me to go get it

      I am afraid to go back she has gotten better at manipulating me over the years we have been chatting. But I have been working on the parts of my personality that blow things up before I go back.

      Even if I had the money..it could be a year or more.it could be two to four months to renew my passport which expiered in March.

      But before I go back I want to get back to Arizona and buy a big chunk of land build a life where I live in the states during the warm/hot months then go over to the Philippines and live near the ocean December to March.

        You made me smile because the first thing I would want to do is get a dip of the other persons ice cream to add to mine. Whoops just broke COVID protocol!

        And when you mention Philippines I am salivating about being back in USA right now.
        Grass always greener on other side as they say.


        But I get the feeling, after I spend an entire day in an American bakery, order from 100 restaurants I guess delivered, take in the scenery, do some things I don't even know because I do not know they exist because I have been gone for such a while, visit old friends and tell the same old jokes, hug family I would be ready to spread my wings again!

          well if you came back know you could enjoy the view of the empty shelves in grocery stores ..maybe ge a view of the miles or several miles long lines at food pantries ..2/3 of he restaurants are closed for good .other restaurants may move in over time .no movie theaters sporting events . who knows when..

          in any case i despise medications and i started getting problems with arthiritis 10 years ago ..i just do not want to live where itt is cold for any length of time ..and i think i'm more frustrated that it is still cold to me here in massachusetts ..and it will be june in a few weeks .

          i lived in Arizona for a year and a half ..the 6 month i spent in florida just made me realize why i dragged my feet going to florida .

          as for going to philippines i't great for a few months ..at a time ..but in my case i just spent a lot of time inside the aircon in my apartments ..so i can do that in the US too haha..make money in the US 9 months a year ..live on the beach or some place like boracia for 3 months ..

  • Over here they have Sim Cards you can load as you need, both for Cells and Laptops WiFi and I can use them in each.

    The Cell Sim comes with a Free Gig each day for Video. Which eats up so much bandwidth but everything and everybody going Video these days!

    So I try not to waste it but it is causing its own Compulsive Behavior in Video Watching. Always starts with Marketing and ends up with Music which is Nutrients for the Soul.

    But I get back to work once my allotment is used up so its under control.

      i tend to only watch video now..and article or written information seems to either be behind a pay wall..or on a screen loading up 100 different adds so the text im trying to read is moving up and down the screen..

      but youtube is starting to be intolerable with the comercials every three minutes that double up if you don't skip them ..

      and as for compulsive behaviors ..the people who believe gold backed money i the only proper money ..and have been saying the collapse of the fait money was close at hand sence we went on fiat money ..are sure this time it the end of the US dollar and the return of gold backed money..or even the rise of crypto ..

  • This has been a interesting week. I actually have been very attentive to my own behaviors much closely now. Some good some bad.

    Doing a different work other than what you planned can still be procrastination for one ha.

    Even when I was trapped in Cubicle Life 9 to 5 I was known for always washing my hands.

    The office gossip was that I was going in there to do some Tootin. (sniffing the nose candy)

    They knew I was a gym freak but I guess chronic hand washing was just too boring to fathom.

    Who knew how popular it would become!

    The people angry now were angry before COVID.

    What is your basis for thinking that? What I notice is the people demonstrating are not the 'same old groups' who seem ready and willing to 'protest' every other week. It's a totally different demographic this time around.

    The people who think they have reason to display assault weapons will continue when COVID is gone for the next trivial reason.

    It's not a 'reason to display' - it's a 'right to own' that they are 'thinking of'.


    I think the guns are simply a visible sign of 'rights' being threatened and that's why they are carrying them. I don't agree with it but I understand why it's happening.


    These people display Nooses. It is obvious what they are even if they seem clueless to it themselves.

    i searched out many of the videos - saw federal and state flags - and a few 'don't tread on me' flags (American revolution) - what I did not see were confederate flags, nooses, etc. I saw some 'anti-china' posters but that's not surprising. There might have been a sign or flag I didn't notice - but I was looking for them...so...not very visible.

    Where are the photos/clips that make it 'obvious what they are'? Or was it a media report of comments by a governor angry over protests?

    well if you came back know you could enjoy the view of the empty shelves in grocery stores ..maybe ge a view of the miles or several miles long lines at food pantries ..2/3 of he restaurants are closed for good .other restaurants may move in over time .no movie theaters sporting events . who knows when..
    You are definitely in the wrong part of the country - our groceries here have been well stocked and no empty shelves for many weeks now. MOST of our restaurants are re-opening....2/3 of the eateries here are NOT closed for good. Not surprising theaters and concerts would be off the table for now. Cities here are making an effort to help businesses re-open by allow 'social distancing' to expand into some closed-off streets or sidewalks outside. The 50% occupancy is difficult - those states with 25% occupancy limits are killing their own businesses.

    What I've noticed this week is that many people are reluctant to LEAVE the pandemic mentality. We can't allow the panic mode to become the norm.

      I know i'm in the wrong part of the country ..at least my brother is back on his feet and it might be a year before he can get surgery on his other ankle ..now i just need the rmv's to open up so i can get a brand new id.

      I was ready to start walking accroos the country a few days ago..but it just colder outside here than i want to be and if there has been a noticable change in my tone the last few months..it is due to the cold and the cabin fever ..

      i would honestly be happier sitting outside under a tree in 110 degree heat ..when i do move in a few month i should have some money in he bank..

      two months being back here i think i can just chalk the misseable attitude i had most of my life to not realizing how much i hated being cold ..not even really cold in temperatures below 60 ..

  • Hi Kay, Always Pragmatic!

    Some people see things from a different perspective that others would have no reason to ever notice because they are not targets of what someone else experiences.

    When I go to a movie I can not just enjoy it, I notice slights, I notice stereotypes it just happens naturally.

    When I see people want to boycott Nike for taking a stand for a peaceful Knee and I see privileged marching with their swimming pool tiki torches I want to vomit.

    If you are not getting shot up in your own house or cops called on kids mowing lawns I guess you not worried about it.

    I remember the story of the White girl walking around in public with her White dress on and a AK47 Assault rifle as a fashion accessory that is not cool that is not a protest for any rights to me If she was black or any other non white she may have been shot dead.

    Trust me I am more optimistic than 99% but I am also a realist and the fact that people have one set of rules for themselves and one for others can get to you.

    And let's make no mistake...calling the cops in this era is really an attempt to get someone harmed. But you may not agree when you are not the target or victim of it.

    In reality, cops coming on the scene have shot other cops! That just happen not to be white or in uniforms

    I remember the story of the White girl walking around in public with her White dress on and a AK47 Assault rifle as a fashion accessory. That is not cool that is not a protest for any rights to me If she was black or any other non white she may have been shot dead.

    • "Money is neither good nor bad. Ultimately, it doesn't offer freedom or manifest evil.
      Money amplifies your character."

      What is up with Mr. CigaWeed extraordinaire Elon Musk? Selling off his properties.

      I highlighted a Fitness Entrepreneur Blog in an eBook once.

      The guy started with a $10 eBook and turned it into a Million Dollars eventually.

      His blog was sorta controversial with him calling his readers "dipshits" for not taking his manly advice and settling for mediocrity and so on.

      But once he brilliantly asked his readers what direction he should take with his blog and I could tell the articles improved and he added additional income streams like supplements etc.

      But then I noticed recently he was writing about visits to Casinos.

      One blog post recently was like a living off the grid type posts and he was blogging about visiting Flagstaff Arizona?
      I am thinking like what? You do not stay there and critique the place you get your gas and get the hell out of there and keep truckin!

      So that was weird.

      Next I see a post he will now stop using his pen name and he is now religiously saved!

      Couple weeks later...Blog Closed. ( I say he should have Flipped it while it was Hot)

          That is true alot of people set up camp there for tax purposes.

          I have driven cross country a few times and always glad to see the Flagstaff sign! Tells me I am close to Civilization again! Then I hit the gas!.

          I would not mind giving Vegas a 2 to 3 month exploratory.

            But I think their Mayor is taking some re opening heat..


            well she is also the mayor who pushed through anti homeless laws last year .. that if your found sleeping on the street when there is room in he shelted ..the cops can write the homeless person like a 1500 $ ticket ..or even jail time ..

            i don't think the casinos can even make a profit if they need to follow social distancing rule.. a lot of their moeny has come from shows the last 5 year trade shows and confrences ..with not much of the going on .

      Seriously, the likes of Alex Jones (Info Wars) and David Icke (coronavirus pandemic caused by 5G mobile phone networks) are also making a killing by tapping into the surprisingly large fringes of the irrational.

        alex jones ..i don't believe there is a them or an organization controlling everything that happens but i do believe there are a lot of secrets to be kept..but the only way to do that is to release the secret information along with hundreds of other bogus stories ..

        but the people in the organizationg doing it looked at rush limbaugh in the 90's and said we need someone louder than that telling everone about conspiracy theories ..and boom alex jones comes along ..he get fed information..purposly through several insider sources ..

        but he is real entertaining for a few minutes ..

    • I created this thread sort of sporadically but it really is fascinating topic.

      Exploiting the Neuroscience of Internet Addiction

      Great read but a little bit dated, new technologies create new addictions and new exploits.

        M&M's work too, with the MIND GURU mindset.

        The M&M Weight Loss Diet

        Nutrition experts at candy company M&M Mars have released the newest weight loss method to hit the market: the M&M's diet.

        It is the results of many years study and research into a new, productive weight loss system. We believe it will revolutionize the industry and aid dieters everywhere.

        With your diet stipulated breakfast, you also eat one brown and one orange M&M. This will replace, at least in your mind, your coffee, your bacon or sausage, your toast, and your orange juice.

        These are all items that are brown or orange. The caloric intake from two M&M's is so small that it is insignificant in comparison to the mental and emotional benefits of having your traditional brown and orange foods in the morning.

      Confession here. I made a cool fortune during the Mayan Calendar craze which "prophesied" a December 2012 apocalypse. At first I was debunking it, selling libraries of scientific and astronomical books from Amazon which indicated the Mayan calendar represents the start of a new era and not the end of days.

      But people would also buy books to "prove" their view point. So, I started promoting both sides of the controversy using a different pen name and website. This was an interesting phenomena to see first hand. People so commonly buy into their own preconceived beliefs despite overwhelming proof to the contrary. Works both pro or con.

    • I personally realized that some Compulsive habits stem from PROCRASTINATION directly or indirectly.

      Switching to an activity to avoid another. Guilty as charged.

      But I found a hack for it and works for me.

      "How to Stop Procrastinating in 3 Minutes With One Simple Question"
      What needs to be done now in these three minutes?

      "Now knowing I only have a three-minute commitment I just do the thing I was procrastinating about!

      I just make that a policy! Just do that one thing-- you know what it is-- it's the thing you're thinking about right now.
      Don't think in terms of patterns. None of this: "I always" or "I never " because those globalizing thoughts will never serve you."


      Of course you will go at for longer than that but you got started.


      On another sub topic....Why am I growing a new perfectly trimmed mustache now when I am the only one that will see it unmasked?

    • Having a Compulsive Behavior Challenge!


      Where I am they have had an Alcohol Ban this entire time and it did not faze me one bit.
      Except for the COVID B-Day

      You would think I would be seeing people walking around with the Shakes.

      Nope. From what I can tell everything normal. Maybe they have some stash or home made Coconut Wine never know.

      But it made me think of what else I can Dominate...

      Emotions.
      Procrastination.
      Balanced Diet.
      Min 8 Hours Sleep.
      Treating each day as the Gift it truly is.
      Squash Eternal Planning Mode Focus Implementation Mode
      Networking Creates Leverage even with people of differing opinions.
      Focusing more on the activities that will reward me in results.

      There is probably one or two individuals who would literally implode if their fav Social Platform were to cease operations...like um Twitter?

      Sure I will add to the list.

    The thing about selling anything on the internet is there are always more than one group of people to buy our wares.. Those that are on one side of the coin and those that are on the other side of the coin. Typically, two different belief systems such as those that believe and live by facts and those that question the facts, yet both are interested in the same category (if you will), so why not..

    Create wares that we can sell to both.

      There was a marketer who made a big fortune selling to the astrology crowd. And a small fortune selling to the ANTI astrology (mostly religious) crowd.

      In the early days of the Internet, some well known marketers would circulate through the many forums, and using different "handles" start a thread and come back under a different user name and get into a fight...with himself.

      Created two very distinct markets, which he had something for both.

      You say night, I say day, you the moon, me the sun and then they find out you and me is I. Eh?

            Come to think of it, it makes a lot of sense. Apparently, a lot Youtube seems to be about "feuds" between different youtubers. Basically National Enquirer for the digital age. Completely devoid of content and social value but it works.

        tbh Google is half frickin' blind far as I concerned.

        Hey, but I mortal, I can't write evrythin' out, even if'n I wanna.

        An' time is eternal enough to invite all kindsa stuff we ain't seen yet.


        But, hey -- too many freebootin' pessimists gowin' on.

        An' I don't want nowan missin' out on glories of the cosmos pumped sweet & direct to ass.

        *METAPHOR ALERT, SWEETIES*

        Meantimes, here's my thinkin' rn -- such as it exists between various meanderings between my lockdown refrigerator an' my unleashed fantasies of a Benedict Cumberbatch nature ...

        Gotta figure always what is compulsive an' what ain't bcs evrythin' we all do gotta be compulsed from sumplace or why bother?

        Stoopid stuff ... like should I mash my millennial avocado atop my toast as a symbol for a world packin' glories forevah incinerated at source ... or should I lay back on a couch an' swallow it quarter by quarter ... or half by half ... or WHOLE ... bcs I know what I wanna imbibe -- an' HOW.

        Problem we always had since the beginnin' of whenevah is how to balance universal certainties with personal persuasions.

        A priori vs Feelz.

        An' we got divisions all ovah cozza this eternal dilemma.

        An' prolly nuthin' ain't gonna be settled anytime soon.

        All I ask is for my compulsions an' foibles an' passions nevah to serve no kinda junk.

        For sure I slaver for fyootyurestuffs gonna reward Today Moi for her diligence, smarts & dreams.

        Which is why I ain't about to haul my ass up nowan else's mountain.

        Carry your own pack, you frickin' klutz!

        Tellya, I a chained animyool rn.

        Can't go noplace.

        Can't do nuthin'.

        Can't muster full glory of flesh 'pon flesh.

        So I thinkin' ...

        Visceral. Possible. Eternal.

        Dunno, jus' wrote that out but mebbe compulsion always gotta play by them rules.

        An' from here, more directed offers kinda define 'emselves.

        ARE YOU SUGGESTING YOU'D BE PREPARED TO CAMP OUT IN A FOREST FULL OF KILLER BEARS IN ORDER TO PROVE YOUR (FRANKLY) SPURIOUS POINT, O PRINCESS?
