You may have already heard the legend but here it is again:  

On the 7th day, they did not rest.  They lifted up the corner of the earth and all the nuts rolled out to British Columbia.  

Post that 'creation' event, the rednecks, the bohemians and more recent urban refugees get along surprisingly well.  Dress varies.   Many do not pay too much attention to fashion.  Dress is usually pretty casual.  Many are outdoors practical.  Not too dissimilar to many in Cascadia.  

All the places I have been where geocentric forces are reported to influence have old craggy hippies.  It is part of the charm.  Aesthetic standards from outside/elsewhere need not apply.



Well, I'm glad to hear that the dress code is casual because if I were to wake up in that corner of the universe, I would be comfortable in my t-shirt, jeans and clogs. I don't own anything that has buttons or knots.

LOL!  Now you make me want to expand on that.  This did start out with public persona and media darling William Shatner.

How people live is often reflected in how they look.  Heavy tobacco use will radically age, especially women.  Alcohol affects physical appearance in many ways.  Men and women.

People who are slim but avoid physical exercise?  Easy to spot.   Endurance enthusiasts?  (Runners, bikers, swimmers, etc.) Easy to spot, too.    The Evil E word — exercise — matters for appearance.

I have trouble figuring out anti-anxiety medication (popular in the Lower Wasteland of Barbarian Columbia).    Can't read meth heads.  No clue around functional middle-class heroiin users. 

Once upon a time, I could read a street on the fly and figure out who was up to what and who might be carrying firearms, machetes, knives, etc.  Who was cool.  Who could potentially pose a security issue. Still in one piece here with no bullet wounds or knife or machete scars so consider myself successful in that regard. 

I am pretty good with figuring out domestic dogs, as well as bears and other animals in the bush.    


Few people have this interest or the background or skills.....   Most well adjusted people do not.   

I have also spent half a century listening to men graphically describe women (in gory detail) so every now and then, I get a little in-your-face offensive and graphically describe how some men look.   Bigger than life, public personas only.  Cathartic.  

Sorry to learn of your condition Manbird.

diastasis recti or rectus abdominis diastasis.    Not fun.....  Looked it up on wiki.  Have exercises to strengthen the abdominal muscles helped at all?

Does this condition make you look like an alcoholic?  Without make up, Shatner does.



The strength training and therapy exercises are almost impossible - I watched many videos - 
because I have degenerative disk disease and ankylosing spondylosis which makes most of those
movements pert near impossible.  
I guess I look like an alcoholic to people who think like that although it's not bad with my jacket on.
Ironically I quit drinking over 15 years ago. When I drank my stomach was never this huge. 
I don't need to wear makeup to not look like an alcoholic, thankfully: I take biotin and collagen
to keep my visage looking pretty and youthful.

I guess I have a thing against what we now call 'influencers'.  Old actors, B and C rated actors,
and absolute nobodies who use social media to get relatively wealthy. They sicken me, some of
the younger ones especially. Making a few hundred thousand to a mil or two even and they seem
to freaking entitled. Massive egos. Like Bill. His 'documentary' about his little space trip was awful.
But as long as I can hang on to my memories of him as Captain James Tiberius Kirk, I know I'll miss
him when he beams up to nowhere.  I hope he has that $9.95 insurance plan.

Star Trek: Discovery is the only show worth watching right now
With little fanfare, Star Trek: Discovery's second season is going about the tricky task of hooking itself into the franchise's unwieldy canon
