We always "walk the path" we're meant to walk. One could be on a bad (dangerous, etc.) path, but one can never be on the wrong path.

It's funny. One person will say the problem in NYC is the bicycles. Another will say the problem is the cars; and, another will say that it's the pedestrians. Tsk, tsk, tsk. They're all right. :)

Trump pardoned Scooter Libby. Amazing.

If he's on a pardoning bender and ready to sign for controversial classified material leakers, do you think if I could squeeze into something lowcut and tight, per Samantha Bee's suggestion to the feckless see word, do you think I could get him to pardon Edward Snowden?

TV dramas that run two plotlines in the same episode tell you they cheaped out on production. Scenes assaulting Yeoman Rand and rescuing Lieutenant Sulu from freezing to death can be shot over the needed length and trimmed to fit.
I define internal martial art as unusual muscle recruitment and leave it at that. If my definition is incomplete, at least it is correct so far as it goes.

A microappology is certainly adequate if the offense was microaggression.

that song is not for loose, relax or soft
it is for circulation
blood circulation, then qi circulation
when circulation strength is reached, the go to orbitation

....if you cannot "see" your own body as a system of blood vessels
you cannot really be song

The politics of taking offense, and making an accompanying accusation demanding some or other action from others (however frivolous the grounds) is inherently self-limiting.

Once you have accused everyone of something, we are all in this together. That is where the conflagration burns out.

The code of seppuku, the code duello and modern political correctness have points in common. If people are not yet dying over PC they are at least losing their livelihoods.

People doxxed and falsely accused of various ambiguous, indefensible "crimes" sometimes commit suicide.

Does getting offended over some random text messages count?

Sure, so does getting offended at others feeling offended.
It's also ironic now that people want to replace (an ambiguous) political correctness with civility.

For example, is being against pussy grabbing a request for "politically correctness" or being "civil."
If a married woman who complains that a married guy tries to bed her being uncivil?

Hey, my president has succeeded in making Russia and N. Korea equal to the U.S.! Great! Now, we just have to keep it that way.

What about people getting offended if someone says happy holidays?
