'cause there's something in the air

For some reason, massive numbers of people I know seem to all be getting tired of the I-net at oncet. Me amongst them. I'm not sure if this is just coincidence, or if it happens regularly but this is the first time I've noticed because it's the first time I've been genuinely tired of the 'net in years, or if it's some kind of generational-aging-out thang. Or it could just be me phasing into menopause, or mentalpause, or Something. Whatever, suddenly all the ppl online who I don't already know are coming off like bloomin' eejits offering little of general interest. I mean, not that they didn't always...but more so.

Seems most people, when asked a question, don't want to appear Stupid or do want to Please the Questioner. So they talk too much.

This explains why I make such a swell fake witness for mock trials. I HATE answering questions from anyone I don't "Know" and "Trust". (Putting that in "quotes" b/c I sometimes make mistakes in deciding who goes in that Set, and those become the members of my Subset of People Most Deserving of Being Dismembered With a Blowtorch.) Generally, I like making people work for their lil' nuggets.

Even that meme going around about "ask me three questions" with which many ppl are having Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Phun strikes me (like that interview meme) as almost unbearably disgustingly intrusive. I wonder why I lack the Desire to Please the Questioner? Perhaps the years of distrustful confidants, coupled with Good Ol' Mom reminding me about 20 times per week for years, Don't Trust Anybody and Don't Be Telling the World Your Business, made the lesson finally sinque in? Or was I really born more of a clam than lots of other ppl? Nature v. Nurture. Seize and Suture.

Even talking about talking feels like talking too much.
