  1. Ad about how to detect common cancer symptoms and signals in children and teenagers. The ad has this happy music playing in the background.
  2. "You should be an organ donor now!"
  3. My boomer parents became political zealots since 2020. They never cared much politics but now they are so into it that they keep watching youtube influencers most of the day. They even talk alone when watching propaganda. The psyoped generation of all.

Can I guess that the Boomers turned into Upholders of Our Democracy? Or is it something else?

I used to shop at Nordstrom Rack a lot. They liquidate the stock of lots of fashion brands when they change seasons and need to dump their inventory. You can buy nice quality clothing (I like Rodd & Gunn and Billy Reid brands) discounted for a good price, like $100 shirts for $25-$30.

Last time I went in, the area for shirts my size was about 2 feet wide. Prior to covid it was two long racks, probably 20 feet each.
I looked at the other man shopping in there and said "Wow, the inventory isn't what it used to be." He replied sometimes it takes him months before he can find something to buy in his size. (By the way every one of those items in the 2 foot area was a screenprinted T shirt!)

They've also shut down the Macy's in the mall I used to go to. I guess I'll just buy everything online like all the antisocial masses, and waste everyone's time and money shipping back things that don't fit. I did always like feeling the materials and checking the labels though.

When I walk into a clothing store now, I can always tell if the third world shops there by the condition of the display tables. If the shop has a diverse customer base, it will always look like someone took laundry out of the dryer, dumped it on them and not folded it yet.

Sounds like the last time I walked into a Ross department store.

On that note...

Not only clothes shopping changed, also supermarkets. Noticed again today how weird it was to use a self scan, without any personal contact buying something. Just some vibrant employees chatting and gossiping and diverse guards protecting the store.

Everything is worse:
- the light
- clothing
- personal experience
- the design

They're just looking for a record contract to be a rapper.
They don't read. And they interact far less socially. And are far more disconnected from nature and God.

They are in a hard situation been drugged with porn and Tiktok since 10 years old, not be protected by parents or church. Spending 10000s of hours on a screen before you're 18, that forms the soul and the brain.

The destruction machine has been upped the last 2 to 3 years. Now in hindsight, the 00s weren't that bad. Social media has changed the entire game of what people value and how they interact. Especially women are trapped in the social media thing. Many will value their instagram over a husband. Men are trapped in increasingly demonic pornography. It's hard to see it all happen. But as st Seraphim of Sarov said obtain the Holy Spirit and you'll take thousands with you to paradise. We can't change the world and the direction it's going in, only change ourselves and inspire and influence others that way.

Ive noticed younger people have a diminished capacity for verbal communication. They mumble, ramble and are often incapable of grasping any concepts of any depth. Its like zoomer brains are wired for tik tok or snaphchat.

Or Im just getting old

Zoomers will get old too...

Imagine that!

* I've noticed too and it also seems like they have no energy. I remember seeing dozens of kids skateboarding, flying kytes etc but now it looks like the whole town is dead. And it's a beautiful spring day here.

I walk into a whatever kind of place: thrift shop, general retail, bank, whatever, and if the place is run by women then all the employees say hello to every single person who walks in, no matter what the worker is currently doing, which is confusing at first because you think they're ready to help you, but nope.

It's pretty weird, bordering on insane to have like seven chicks, who are busy doing other things, stopping and saying hello, like you're walking into the cuckoo's nest dayroom during a therapy session or something and the patients are trying out their new Time to Socialize Like I'm Really Alive schtick.

Kroger's even weirder. You walk in, you get greeted by at least one or two people near the front door. Make your way through the store and it keeps happening, especially in produce, then again as you go through the self check-out in order to leave. By the time you've left, somewhere from three to seven people have greeted you, "Hi, how are you?" or "Hi, welcome to Kroger. How are you?"

It's globohomo Truman Show.

This is a theft prevention tactic, at least as much as it is an attempt at customer service. The stores use secret shoppers, and employees can get written up or fired I'd caught failing to greet someone.

US society is all about appearances and perception while diminishing what is real. It's a grand illusion like the Wizard of Oz.

The effect on normies is this:

Wow I walked into this store and everyone was so friendly, they said hi!

For the rest of us we realize that no real information was exchanged nor was the person assisted at all in finding anything in the store.
