Okay, I know, I've been on a rant. I'm starting to like ranting, but, for a lighter side, I'll show some cute and cuddly kitties.

I have a couple of questions for the Minds admin team, but I also want it to see the light of day, and I hope they answer publicly. My first question is why can we only pin 3 posts? Can't it be at least a couple more? It becomes difficult when you have a lot of your own posts and others you have reminded; it becomes very tedious. I must say that I love the button that allows me to see all my posts as tiles on my screen, where I can find what I'm looking for very quickly. My second question is why have we not gotten a "TOP" key? On my email, when there are a lot of messages, and you're far down in the queue, there is a an interactive button, something like what I posted above. Click it, and you're instantly at the top of the emails. It can't be that hard, can it? I think I know the real reason why we don't see anything like this on social media. It's to keep us scrolling, so we spend more time on the platform. Then when we see the likes and comments, the reminds, we get a little hit of dopamine. A lot of people on all the social media platforms have become dopamine addicts, pure and simple. A former Apple employee admitted as much and was pretty ashamed of what he had helped create. I eagerly await your answers. I think both these additions would produce a much more enjoyable time, and a lot less dopamine drug addicts. Thank you for your time, if you so deign to bother to answer a peon publicly. @john @ottman @jack

I've been planning to put up a couple of videos of Christopher Langan, one of the smartest men in the United States and even the world. His IQ has been measured at 195 - 200. For reference, mine is 135. My brain is puny compared to his. Mr. Langan believes in God and puts it out there in simple terms, even with his brilliant mind. He wasn't too successful in school because he couldn't stand the limitations and the academic hatred for anything spiritual, at least when it comes to The God Of Everything That Is. It really bothers me that believers in God, in Jesus, are spurned, called childish, stupid and uninformed. Muslims aren't attacked as much, neither are atheists, naturists, paganists, and many others. This country is being judged for our wicked deeds. We turned our collective backs on God when prayer was taken out of school, and we've also got the blood of innocent unborn children, the weakest and most defenseless of us all. God sees this unjust sacrifice to Molech and will not tolerate it forever. I pray for those of us who do believe and are now caught up in a situation we didn't create, but we're trying to gain victory within it, anyway. Judgment can be swift, or it can be slow and excruciatingly painful. The signs are in the stars, too. They are everywhere if you just look. I'm so glad that I've found quite a few who do believe here, and we encourage each other to keep up the good fight of faith. I've been attacked for my faith a lot more lately, because I'm not staying silent. The squeaky wheel gets the grease, after all. However, if you come to my channel and start writing expletives in the comment section of any of my posts, you will be instantly BLOCKED, no hesitation, no regret. I don't have time for that now. As Bob Dylan so succinctly said in his song All Along the Watchtower, "There are many here among us Who feel that life is but a joke But, uh, but you and I, we've been through that And this is not our fate So let us stop talkin' falsely now The hour's getting late." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NDyHVv7cPB4

As usual, I've been listening to a long playlist I made from videos and mp3's of my favorite music. It is on autoplay and I just heard this song. I don't try to fix anyone, but I do try to be there for my friends, here and in the real world, who need a hug, a smile, or just to be listened to, without trying to get in my own points. Nevertheless, it's a beautiful song, and a cover of the Coldplay mega-hit. And check out the channel name: Fearless Soul. Right on, right on!!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SsBNDryJYSs&list=PLGT6bC90NlnZYgjRMLp-kSzOC2LDsEjKI&index=51
