I know this one. I know we don't have it. We are just a temporary collection of memes and genes and they are doing a few other things so whag we call free will is just their competing priorities.

One thing which worries me from time to time is the prospect of sustaining a head injury or developing a tumor which drastically changes your behaviour or personality.

That Sapolsky bloke Stan likes mentions a case like that in one of his lectures, some guy murdering someone or having an affair or something and turning out to have had a tumor putting pressure on his brain and causing behavioural changes.

I've a relative with some sort of dementia who gets much angrier and nastier than they used to, uncharacteristically so.

Why would you ever worry about something like that?

I wouldn't normally wear 9ne, but I had been on holiday in southern Spain and it became a normal thing, so I carried on in England. Then this chap had a go at me cos he thought I was tak8ng the piss out of our religion, which I wasn't, but he had a go at me. It wouldn't be something I would normally do in England, I tend to wear my hair down

But it's a bit more complicated, cis I told him I was not a believer, and he still carried on. Then my wife got involved and gave him a good talking to, explained a couple things, and 20 mins later, when he got off the train, he apologised

It's mad having been away from the uk for 8/9 years at this point, I sometimes forget how much random aggro you can encounter over there

Have heard Frankfurt can be rougher. But I've only ever lived in Berlin and Leipzig. Both are very tame. Especially Berlin considering the size and all the partying and what goes along with that

Yeah it was definitely one of those. But on the other hand, Europe's got its problems. There's a funny casual racism thing definitely. Going on a 4 week car trip to sicily and back in Aug, I'm looking forward to a few eye poppers.

Oh yeah, don't get me wrong, just because they keep their aggro under control doesn't mean it isn't there and doesn't get expressed in a multitude of other ways

It's more passive and psychological stuff over here
