You are not alone if you cannot love your mother

Mom has been screwing you your whole life.
You can judge her for it, but how does that punish her?
She can't change, but you don't have to keep putting your $50 in the slot..
I think
that
making other people aware that
their moms
can stink
can make people like me feel less alone
and on their own.

I felt alone until I discovered that
there are other moms
that
are uncaring and self absorbed
and that
I absorbed
from another
podcast that
tackled Borderline moms.

While I may never
ever
be able to forgive
my mom
I can give
other people that
maybe
in a similar situation to me
a voice since I am quite outspoken here
and I don't fear
expressing
our collective 'Dark side'
we suppress inside
and try to hide.

Moving inside a Shapeshifting Alien Blob's ship

Post by secretnude » Sat Apr 19, 2014 1:56 pm

Rob
as a floating
Shapeshifting
Blob
was quite
a sight
in Zero G
since you see
they look like giant human white
blood cells
and the Blobs
do move well
using body protrusions
and the formation
of odd
looking giant pseudopods.

Rob
squeezed into a tiny hole
to travel entirely whole
through tubes in this Zoo ship
and Rob was pneumatically shipped
into areas that Rob
told me is strictly
restricted
for Shapeshifting
Blobs.

I moved
around the ship
with the force fields removed
after the exhibit
but I felt a bit
trapped as this ship
is made for Shapeshifters.

No universal translator in an Alien Zoo for specimens

Post by secretnude » Sat Apr 19, 2014 2:24 pm

I met
with what I bet
is another
nonshapeshifter.

I was unable
to communicate
with the alien entity
which I hate
since I seem to be able
to talk only with the shifty
Shapeshifters
that run this Ship.

The nonshapeshifter
was a biped cat
that
seems also quite depressed
since we specimens
in the exhibit
do exhibit
depression
a lot.

We alien
specimens
hate our lot
in life.

My life
was abruptly
disrupted
due
to
a random draw.

I assume that the shifty
Shapeshifters
also used a random draw
to sample other aliens for new
specimens in this Alien Zoo.

You feel lucky? Biped Alien Skunk say yes....

Post by secretnude » Sun Apr 20, 2014 2:02 am

One of the stranger Aliens beings
in the Alien Sentient Being
Exhibit
seemed to exhibit
a fair bit more happiness at being
picked
for this Alien Zoo that is sick.

With time we learned each others'
language and beliefs
and I was shocked by the other
Alien's belief
that he
was special because he
was 'chosen'
to be part
of this Zoo that is state of the art.

Like me,
you see,
he was 'chosen'
via random means
that means
our inherent qualities weren't part
of the consideration in the Alien
Specimen Sampling
Protocol by Aliens
shaped like Terran dumplings.

Hey Zookeeper! Can I have some writing implements?

Post by secretnude » Sun Apr 20, 2014 2:18 am

We do get
medical care and adequate food and rest
even if the accommodations on this Shifty
Shapeshifter's
Zoo Ship aren't the best.

The Shapeshifting Blob
named Bob
was in charge of my well being
as well as the being
named Rob
that is also a Blob.

Bob
and Rob
are good friends
and I can depend
on any of them for my sexual needs
aside from getting
my nutritional needs
met
and I feel like a pet.

Being
a sole male Human Being
during a long trip
could trip
your mind
to depression
so I needed some self expression.

This transmission is monitored by Shifty Shapeshifters

Post by secretnude » Sun Apr 20, 2014 2:33 am

I wrote a series of weird
one hundred word poems on a weird
website
whose name I wouldn't cite
via a strange subspace link,
I think.

I would otherwise be deranged
without this strange
form of self expression
that helps battle my depression.

The Shifty
Shapeshifters
named Rob
and Bob
now see me sob
less
after their replicator
did it's best
to replicate
a Terran computing device
that is quite nice.

Rob
and Bob
strangely
refuses my request for clothing
and hence I am wearing
nothing
while writing
strange
poems on a strange
website for strange readers
and strange writers.

Life as a series of random events that is devoid of meaning

Post by secretnude » Sun Apr 20, 2014 9:38 am

Our Brains are
good at pattern
matching and we seek patterns
where there are no patterns
to be found.

Our Brains
have been constrained
by natural selection
to be sensitive to patterns
since you
only live once
and once
you
are eaten by a predator your
genes
are out of the gene
pool.

We could be fooled
by our brains
to find faces in bread
that I read
is a phenomenon
called Pareidolia.

Electronic voice phenomenon
maybe Auditory Pareidolia
as is finding
patterns in music by backmasking.

Much of the paranormal might be Apophenia
or finding meaning
in meaningless
randomness.

Humanity version 2.0 as adopted by early adopters

These WonderKids

Our wonderful

We were
early adopters

Our home

Some things can be 'too perfect' for this generation

Post by secretnude » Sun Apr 20, 2014 1:17 pm

Unfortunately,
we still felt inadequate
as parents
to our WonderChild
since it seemed like our WonderChild
needed no parenting.

Our parental
input was never
ever
a major
contributing
factor
to many of the WonderChild's
wonderful
accomplishments.

I had make a note as a WonderLabs
employee that the WonderChild
experiment
maybe too successful.

We felt that the WonderChild's
perfection must be reduced
to reintroduce
parental
pride at being able to parent
well
as long as the parents
never get to experience the hell
that previous generations
had
sadly
gone through
to be a good parent
to a generation
that is new.

I guess, I need a nonenhanced pet that still needs a vet

Post by secretnude » Sun Apr 20, 2014 2:02 pm

Our boss
tossed
our suggestion
to dial down the perfection
of the wonderful
WonderLabs
product
called WonderKids
since WonderLabs
has competitors in this product
space
and stiff competition
for perfection,
WonderLabs
will face.

I guess parenting
will be like running
on autopilot as the growing
WonderKids
do wonderful
things
that we parents
had nothing
to do with except perhaps to feed
and clothe the WonderKids
that are a wonder
indeed.

I guess, I will have to get
a nonenhanced pet
dog to experience some pride in making
something
grow up
with effort
as these WonderKids
are growing up
wonderfully
effortlessly.

Data Driven Parenting or Parenting 2.0

Post by secretnude » Sun Apr 20, 2014 3:02 pm

Many kids
do well despite of bad parenting
and parenting
maybe secondary to the inherent
genetic
characteristics
of the kids
and the kid's
environment.

While nobody is going to perform
randomized controlled studies to inform
us as to the contribution of genetic
and environmental factors
versus parental factors
to inform us which factor
is dominant, maybe big data
can help in teasing
out the data.

Imagine data mining
our hyperconnected progenies lives
and improving
the future generation's lives
by tweaking
the critical factors.

Many people are giving
up privacy
for freebies
so I guess quantified parenthood
is apparently
a possibility.

Families that are unhappy like a snow flake

Post by secretnude » Sun Apr 20, 2014 4:27 pm

Leo Tolstoy
in Anna Karenina did say
'Happy families
are all alike; every unhappy family
is unhappy in its own way.

I believe that Tolstoy
is correct since so many things
has to go right to bring
a happy family
into existence.

The nonexistence
or the
deficiency
in a single factor can make a family
unhappy
like a family
that is rich but unloving
or a poor family
that does love
the kids but is unhappy
due to poverty.

We might say
families may
be doomed to be
unhappy
in most cases unless the perfect set
of conditions are met.

Survival of the fit means the elimination of the unfit

Post by secretnude » Mon Apr 21, 2014 10:54 am

I am a geek
who is weak.

I have been sick
a lot since I was young.

Nature is unsentimental.

Animals
like cats
do abandon their unviable
young
so that
the cat
can make viable
offspring.

I saw this in action
with the inaction
of a mother cat
that
didn't feed
her kittens
that
indeed
sadly died.

I tried
to save a kitten
by feeding
the surviving kitten
with milk only to see the kitten
die the next day.

The weak, like me, some say
must be eliminated so that
our human race can be strong like that
of cats.

Excluding yourself from the gene pool is a choice

Post by secretnude » Mon Apr 21, 2014 11:14 am

In ancient Sparta
as a Spartan
baby who wasn't 'Spartan'
I might have been spared
a life
of bodily
misery
as the Spartans
might have cared
to end my life
really
early
for the sake of maintaining a strong society
that is free
of the weak
and sickly.

We are more enlightened than
the Spartans
and hence I survive as a sickly and weak
geek
that speak
of matters existential and depressing
like what I am now expressing.

I
do refrain from passing down
my bodily aliments that upon which, I
frown
and I
elect
to remain childless in effect.

Failing a parenting test that is needed to adopt the best

Manufacturing a WonderBaby from genetic raw materials

Post by secretnude » Mon Apr 21, 2014 3:24 pm

A WonderLabs
WonderBaby
is made from the parents' gametes
with so many genetic modifications to meet
the WonderLabs
Quality Control.

The WonderBaby
is incubated in an Artificial
Intelligence controlled
Artificial
Uterus that is state of the art.

This does spare
the WonderBaby's
mom from needing to bear
a pregnancy
that is also risky
for the WonderBaby.

I was told that my husband gametes
don't meet
the minimum requirements
before WonderLabs
can allow a lifetime engagement
with us since WonderLabs
said that
my husband's gametes
had too many defects
that
needed to be
fixed for the process to be
cost effective.

The rumored Genetically Enhanced WonderSoldier

Post by secretnude » Tue Apr 22, 2014 1:07 am

There are rumors that WonderLabs
made genetically enhanced WonderSoldiers
that America deployed in several wars
since reports
of causalities
are too low so far.

Low casualties
indeed supports
the rumor as DARPA did support
the WonderLabs
project for WonderHumans.

The Artificial Uterus could be
scaled to adult size, you see
and coupled with a neurochip
that's hip,
the WonderSoldier
needs minimal training
compared to a normal soldier
that would be draining
the quickly depleting
US Department of Defence
Budget that is hard to defend.

WonderHumans are intellectually
and athletically
superior
to Homo Sapiens
as Homo Superior
and I feel inferior.

The Final Solution to America's Health Care Problems

Post by secretnude » Tue Apr 22, 2014 1:58 am

US Government maybe
silently
inserting
WonderHumans
into the general population
with the notion
of improving
the 'Average American'
because of spiralling
health care costs
as other countries like China that can
bear the cost
to compete in the race
for a better 'Race'
also tinker with mass population
genetics.

Genetics
in the long run maybe destiny
as genetically
superior beings
make superior countries.

The immigrant or refugee
from a far off country
that now lives next door
that maybe on the garage floor
inventing
something
new
could be one of the new
Homo Superior
with intellect superior
to Homo Sapiens.

Be Greater Than

Post by secretnude » Tue Apr 22, 2014 4:01 am

Humanity
maybe
just a pebble
in a river that would be able
to carry
our progeny
to the next evolutionary
destination
as nations
and the free market compete
to be greater
than each other.

The cost of Health Care
that makes the poor not dare
to avail
of medicine at the rates that prevail
could be
a selective pressure
that maybe
difficult to endure
by individuals but maybe
good for humanity
as a whole.

The notion that selective pressures
on humanity
has been eliminated maybe
premature
since in Third World nations,
high quality medications
are difficult to secure
for sure.
