    Patchouli replied to Have you ever met anyone without a sense of humor and/or never laughs?:
    I'm sort of like that. It's not that I don't have a sense of humor, I just can't help that I turn into a robot around most people. I laugh a lot around close friends and family members, maybe it's just social anxiety..

    No.  I think that word has a negative connotation.  I always think of someone who's cunning as a person who tries to take advantage of another and I don't do that.

    There may be denial and skepticism in places like DC at the moment, but when the world’s food production tails off, all that will change. Hopefully it won’t take that long.
