    Default Brain fade

    Has anyone else experienced a strange brain fade when:

    Listening to the weather forecast when it gets to your own area

    Receiving good advice

    Reading forum contributions by LiberalLeft.

    I just can't understand it. It's like a deadly fog or lassitude that just leaps out of nowhere, then goes away just as quickly when conditions lift.

    Is it like going fishing and expecting a snapper but hooking a flounder?

    Well put. You suspect there's some nugget that's just passed you by, but realise you'll just have to make do with what you've got.

    Perry, I'm rather hoping it's a SUBJECT problem, not a BRAIN turning to mush type problem.

    I'm uneasy at the thought of brain decay, I've got to admit.

    I prefer to think that my brain, developing in old age, makes brilliant and intuitive pre-emptive strikes to keep boredom away. For instance, knowing the weather in advance is boring. Getting good advice is boring. Ditto reading LiberalLeft items.

    Is this just wishful thinking?

    You know what they say.... there's only one thing worse than being talked about.

    I think part of the reason is that you read the words "liberal" and "left" and being so conditioned as right-leaning in the spectrum that you automatically decide it must be tosh. My advice would be to read again and not let your blinkers cloud your judgement. Book, cover, etc.

    There's another saying also:
    Better to be thought a fool, than to open ones mouth and confirm it.

    I'm rather pleased that he rates my posts along with good advice.

    You're welcome, beanman.

    Being a liberal doesn't necessarily place you left of centre. It is entirely possible to be liberal and have right-leaning views.

    The word "liberal" has had much bad-press of late and is seen as a dirty word by many, whereas in it's purest form it's described as believing in "freedom of the individual".

    Is anyone now willing to stand up and say they don't believe in that?
