I just found out another friend is dying. Two to five years, barring a miracle.
So many going, so many already gone. Family, friends. I know I've reached 'that age' where you talk about your medical conditions because that's what we have in common, but I do not willingly accept losing those close to me simply because we are getting old.
I am filled with despair and anger tonight. Not to mention a sense of my own mortality waiting at the door.
Rusted Neuron is an invitation-only 'Intentional Community'. It is not intended to represent a specific focus, although the people you find here are generally intelligent, creative, and witty. Content and conduct rules are set by the community, not by fiat. The one thing we will not tolerate here is intolerance; you can agree to disagree, but you must treat others with respect.Currently the membership limit is 100 people and there are plenty of slots available. The goal is to try to replicate real-world community interaction and norms enforcement online. Keeping it small is intended to create a village atmosphere by staying well under Dunbar's Number.
