    Ever read into “Confirmation Bias?”

      Yes, Sir.
      It’s in the ‘List of cognitive biases’ and also ‘Whatever you FOCUS on you will be more sensitive to’
      I am well aware of being in an ‘Echo Chamber’ and try to take that into consideration in general.
      Just like your point in ‘Road Rules’, we have to aim for something better!

        I’m sure you do, you seem pretty balanced.

        I’m honestly thinking about that in relation to the Kung Flu and some preppers I know.

        I got some guys, always think the world is ending. Corona Chan and the Karate-Americans are just the next calamity we’re going to survive, is what I tell them. That’s all.

      I didn’t mean to “sound” defensive. It is an interesting and important topic.

      Prepping can easily become an escape valve or even escape from Clown World, the first can give hope and meaning, the last can make people LARP and waste time. I will not pretent, that I know the answer to Corona Chan or much else, execpt for kicking out the invaders.
      But I agree with you, untill something drastic might happen.

      Viking Life Blog is (amongst other things) a “Knowledge Bank” and I tent to forget to follow up or introduce readers to important topics like personal development. I often just link to a post with 100 links, which nobody ever read.

      I think, that ‘echo chamber’ could be a good way to re-introduce some of these topics.

      As with ‘Road Rules’, it is important to contribute with something constructive and also with something positive.

        Absolutely. We finally had our first hit of Covid-19. Up in the County of all places. We’ll see what comes. How fares Denmark?

      I am not sure, Clown Denmark being Clown Denmark.

      Wow, I just checked 615, 1 recovered and 0 death.

        At least nobody died. I hear the Italians are having a rough go of it.
