I just had an idea: Icelandic Moss mead!
Since I shouldn't start another hobby, is there anyone practicing #meadmaking willing to try this?

The US system for the marginal taxation of individual income relies on seven income brackets. The top bracket covers all income over $578,126 for single filers and all over $693,751 for those married filing jointly.
CBO publishes a long list of "Budget Options," including various proposals to raise tax rates. However, **none of the options considered would increase the number of brackets. Why not?**
Why shouldn't we add 7 more brackets for income above $1,000,000?…

About life and feelings, gloomy and private
The feelings we get from the activities we do could be classified as neutral, positive and negative.
Let's take developing #Gentoo as an example. It's something that makes me happy — but you can't (or at least I can't) just get the happiness and reject everything else. Most of the Gentoo work is basically neutral, even bland — a duty that takes a lot of time and effort, and probably a little of your health. It's statistically probable that you're going to get some positive feelings out of it — the joy of success, satisfaction, appreciation, awareness that you've done something good. But you also get negative feelings — from failures, frustration, negative interactions.
My hiking trips are like that too. My family believes that "I do it for pleasure" — but it's a harmful oversimplification and it only tells me that they even aren't trying to understand me. In fact, it's mostly a necessity, a way of solving specific problems that works for me — halting diabetes-related problems, coping with emotions. Of course there's a positive side to it — good mood, energy to survive another day, something the joy of visiting a new place, seeing something beautiful, finding a solution to a vexatious problem, positive interactions with people. But there are also negative feelings — anger and sadness from failure, stress from problems, negative contacts with people. Sometimes you end up slowly charging your social battery for a whole week, just to have one person destroy it all.
If you think about it, life's something like that. It's mostly a bland effort to survive every following day, sometimes interspersed with positive or negative moments.

As a result of this, I was booted from this Facebook group. The only reason I realized this months later was when I looked to follow up with my well earned “I told you so” that following winter. Someone had of course been unable to stop going down this hill and clean took out the stop sign. I’m just reminded of this story today, as I witnessed 1 car sliding straight into the middle of the intersection as I went the other direction. 2/3

if you set two dozen people on solving the environmental problems we face,
and they each focused on different things,
would their different solutions be harmonious? like a "yes, and"?
e.g. are all straightforward, cost effective, solutions we can do now... non-conflicting?
like swapping to alternatives for milk / not shipping water around,
or meat, or air travel,
swapping to EVs for rural america and improving trains to replace highways/flying, a cleaner grid but also the battery recycling,
swapping to nuclear, wind, and solar, dealing with recycling all of them in stride
supply chain plastics, single use plastics,
not using massive AI datacenters to do that stuff
changes in lobbying, taxes, subsidies, regulations,
if you had 24 people - would their ideas be synergistic? #ClimateChange #GreenEnergy
