1. Old enough to be alarmed by some trends I am seeing

For example when I moved to Minnesota the average temperatures in the winter were 7 degrees colder. A candidate like Donald Trump would have been booed off stage 20 years ago. A decade ago maybe a few years more than that, even RepubliCONs had some compassion for people with disabilities and now there are Democrats that think disabled people cost too much. There's a lot more, but I am really really tired right now. I have o'd on watching #PopeGate.

5. No, there goes the meme that all 23 year old Sanders supporters have time to waste on DU...

Luckily, those Sanders supporters I have met who have never heard of DU are pretty reasonable people. (And most are under 30)

Remember, no poll on DU is even remotely scientific. Heck, even the supposed scientific political polls these days haven't been that accurate.

You've been here like 2 months and have already figured out how to be a wet blanket at a rainy beach party in Antarctica.

Damn, dude. You make dreary look like a good spring color palette.

If I told you to lighten up, you'd probably set yourself on fire. So don't do that.

14. A realist sees the glass as neither half full

nor half empty. It just has a quantity of half of the container.

A pessimist sees the glass as half full of muriatic acid in anticipation of the toast they need to drink to when the love of their life marries their best friend.

Don't be a pessimist.

For those who can't see past the pope, I'll translate the aforementioned: POPE. Pope. Pope.

Unfortunately, I make too much to get any of it.

Oh well, another naive BS supporter.
