The human brain is so fascinating! The Brain and Behavior was my favorite course when I was getting my Bachelor's in Psychology.
I recently heard a talk by a therapist on what we can do to improve our four "Happiness Hormones." Serotonin is one of them, and it fits perfectly with what your family member is doing.
I'll thread my notes, because it was helpful to me and may be helpful for others.
I’ve been incommunicado here for a couple days. Wednesday was spent packing and flying to Texas, where I was met by my sister and her oldest son, and we spent the night at his house outside of Ft.

I’ll make a thread of my visit as time permits, sharing some stories and pictures in the process.
Dick Van Dyke is still alive. He's 97, and California hasn't revoked his driver's license.
Greater Los Angeles got a tornado yesterday. First one since 1983. From the video in the article, you can tell that Californians don't have ANY instincts about how to behave during a tornado.

Stanford should call this training...DEPROGRAMMING.😎
Fucking hell 😂
The government sure knows how to inspire loyalty.
Moderna – which received about $10 billion in taxpayer money to produce its COVID-19 vaccine and has since earned billions more in profits selling it – was sued in early 2022 by Genevant Sciences and Arbutus Biopharma Corp., which accused Moderna of using technology they have patented in its vaccine. The two companies have asked a federal court in Delaware to award them damages for the infringement.

@MarinaMedvin: "Trump’s Case in DC: Yesterday the appeals court set a MIDNIGHT deadline for the defense to protect attorney client privilege and then 6AM response deadline for the government… just wanted to make sure you guys realized that the court gave the lawyers a few hours to work and in the middle of the night, at that. And no, I’ve never seen that before. Ever."
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
