Serious question.
I wonder the same thing (briefly) fairly often about a lot of stuff. I’ve been wondering why this young woman’s story has been grabbing my attention, and I confess I don’t know.

Asking the question opens the door to a humongous psycho/philosophical universe of the human condition that we occasionally glance at uncomprehendingly, then go immediately back to sleep.

Some “consciousness” gurus have said that if we humans were able wake up fully on the spot, the shock of it would kill us.

“I dunno, man… maybe I’ll ask the Golden Teacher?”

A news story gone viral. I've managed mostly to avoid the story, but can't avoid the headlines.

I guess for just a moment it takes us away from our own miserable existences. Gives us pause and leads to speculation about how it could have ever have come to this...

Have you met my ex...?

I know exactly how it came to this.

I suspect that "human remains consistent with" the boyfriend will be found. Dead by his own hand.

Of course, it went viral because we want it, and is top news because the news machine survives by feeding us what we want. Some say humans are just organic stimulus-response machines.

And I suspect you are going to be right about young Romeo.

There is an aritcle over at WhiteBart suggesting that "Liberal Media" is tricking Trump supporters into NOT taking the vaxx so they die off.

Since when did Fox News and NewsMaxx become "Liberal Media?" Hmm

You'll need to shower after you click the above link. smile ...just saying... coffee

It's the Democrats' fault that they're dying! Joe Biden killed their granma

Dr. Fauci lied to the liberal media and tricked the right-leaning media into reporting more cases of swollen testicles than actually existed.

Why am I not surprised...?

Me too.
Yesterday on my fb feed I watched most of the police body cam of when the police first stopped them. It was an hour and 17 minutes long. It was hard to hear and I kept forwarding it up but got the gist of it. I don't want to post it.
I'm not going to speculate but it's a very odd encounter. The outcome is likely to be pretty heartbreaking.

I think this is probably the consequences of being with somebody else 24/7/365: There are a lot of such "living together in a van" or "building a house together" video channels on YouTube right now. A natural thing because of the lockdowns. But building a house together actually often leads to divorce! People need a little alone time, which is pretty hard to come by when you have to poop in the van with your SO right there every second of the day and night.
