CaptCliff on the New Year

As you know I love to give my pompous overeducated opinion on numerous topics, mostly to show just how nimble my mind is compared to my rapidly aging and deteriorating body. The verb “to shrivel” does not do justice to the physical changes that have ensued over the past few years.  Besides having no hair on my head and copious amounts of thick grey fur-hair on my back, shoulders and chest, my sons love to call attention to how the top half of my body is like a “wine barrel” and that my limbs seem like skinny “chicken parts” in comparison. They apparently marvel at the asymmetry.

I can only hope that the barrel they refer to carries a quality vintage and one known to mellow and deepen”with age. I’m not sure if I really have. I seem more to be just an old bald guy with ADHD….and a consistent tendency to embarrass myself and my grown children publicly and especially on social media.

In keeping with the past, I will attempt to answer another complex question drawn from  recent news reports and contemporary society. The Question: What is it with all these goddamn lunatics randomly shooting people with high powered automatic weapons? Why is this happening and more importantly, what does it all mean?? Lastly, are there powerful psychiatric medications that would help these people?
Answer:  I have no fricking clue. It’s really fucked up. Some effective gun control for lunatics would probably help some. As far as medications are concerned, possibly but the really severely deranged  lunatics have a tendency to isolate, under-medicate, go off medications suddenly, and/or fail to maintain regular psychiatric follow-up appointments.  Frankly, however, I’m currently concerned about my own blood chemistry and hormone levels as I think I may no longer be producing serotonin, melatonin, dopamine or sperm in any appreciable quantity.  I may in fact  have less free testosterone/male hormone circulating through my body than my son’s old, blind neutered mongrel, Cesar.  Luckily Cesar doesn’t have to deal with the psychological ramifications of knowing he is growing asymmetrical tufts of hair out of his ears, nose, back, chest and ass. He just sheds constantly and bumps into walls. Like I said before, it’s all fucked up.  Happy New Year.
