Dude, you should move to my neighborhood. At our 4th of July neighborhood party, the subjects of discussion were GMO's, the trampling of the
amendments with examples, the death of small business and growth of conglomerates (heavy focus on Walmart), unemployment and lowered wages/salaries,
and even a story shared by one neighbor about her experience as a teenager during the McCarthy era where her teacher was roughed up and her paper for
his class taken by the NSA because it featured information gained from interviewing Communists.
And for the record, I tend to listen and comment
instead of initiating conversations. It's just my nature so those are the subjects that were coming from my neighbors on the 4th.
If that isn't funny enough, best local conversation for sheer eye popping value had to be with a man that worked for the local utility company a
couple years ago. Company sent him to test something out with me due to my complaint of a problem with one of their devices. After he and the
utility company verified that my complaint was actual, the guy not only guessed my blood type with 100% accuracy but also asked me about other very
specific "symptoms" that previously only my family and doctors knew about and had been the subject of medical testing to comprehend the source of
Now, if that wasn't freaky enough, the guy said that he knew these things because he'd run into "others" just like me in the
area. Said that there were just 13 of us in my area, all of us with the same complaint, blood type and problems, lmao. Better yet was the part where
he was giving me dietary advice to improve my "symptoms", told me that he would keep my secret to "protect" me, (
) because I was going to
be "needed in the coming storm". LMAO. It was about that time that a second worker for the same company showed up and quietly told me, "he gets a
little out there when he encounters this stuff" so he was out there for "damage control". Needless to say, my brain was popped that day and thank
god I don't have a Messiah complex. I swear on the heads of my children that that entire encounter is accurately depicted. As hard as it is to
believe, that conversation actually happened. lmao. I spent the rest of the day absolutely befuddled.
So really, if you're looking for some curious and good conversations, my neighborhood apparently rocks for it. I don't know if it's always a good
