You don't think that child medical problems are political? It gets political real quick... Did you see all of the debates over parents rights lately?

Please stop the "everything is political" schtick for a while. The media of all types and morass of social media simpletons will have you believe everything is a wedge subject to enrage and control thought.

Either talk about the subject or don't talk about it at all, let the mods be that guide; otherwise it's a misguided attempt to shut down conversation you're not prepared for before it even starts.

I won't go as far as saying "everything is political," but lots of things are ideological. And some of those things do become political.

Does anyone else get the feeling that MMM is reading this forum as a guest, basking in all the attention he's "posthumously" receiving?

Yes.

Everyone is still feeding the troll.
^This.

And this is why we're doomed to have another one.

I still think a more recent hawker of YouTube videos on here was less prevalent when people didn't give him the time of day.

Let’s forget about MMM. He’s gone. No need to hypothesize on his behavior.  The world is full of strange folks.

The world is full of strange folks, but not every person in the world is strange.  That's not how language works.  For example...

Chicago is full of museums.  This does not mean there are no apartment buildings or restaurants there.

How language works is irrelevant here, though: I just disagree that not every person is strange (at least as an objective statement).

Strange is all relative. Or maybe just a few relatives. Sometimes you don't know how weird (or normal-ish) things are in your own family until you meet a few more of them. Then we reshuffle our deck of People We Know and arrange them in an order, putting some in different margins because that's how we roll.

If faces come out of the rain, then you're strange. If streets are uneven when you're down, you're a roadgeek.

Strange is also subjective. Just depends on your societal norms.

Pretty much everything is relative.  Once someone knows something and it becomes their norm, they become desensitized to it, then are often surprised when others don't know it. 

For roads, work in a toll booth (one of the few that exist anymore).  You'll get questions that make you realize what a scary world it is alongside others at 70 mph.

There was a guy a few years ago in some of the road-related Facebook groups who was downloading pictures from the groups and offering prints of them for sale on his website. He's been permabanned from any of the groups that I run. He recently tried to join a couple of them, but I declined his requests.
