Unusual Things I am Anxious About


  • What if I had never met my husband? If the theory of multiple universes is true, there must be millions of versions of myself out there that never met him. That would be awful! IT IS SO SAD

  • That one day someone might frame me for a crime, and then I'll get sent to prison, and the prison people won't believe that I really have food allergies and so I can't eat the food there, and I gradually starve to death

  • That I might get a religious vision that reveals Islam to be the one true faith, and then I can't eat bacon anymore

  • That my children might grow up and like anime

There are also universes where you know your husband in infinite pairings on a spectrum from intimate partner to ambivalent acquaintance and mortal enemy. Let your faith take you where it may. In this universe, there are many bacons.

Bacon is really good though! I mean not just in the hyperbolic internet sense! It's the best! It's pretty much the only meat I could stand when I was with child.

Maybe science can create a dumber pig

I have the second fear.

So it's not just me!

If you are framed I will send you food that doesn't have files baked into it

Actually this started because I read so many memoirs of political prisoners, so my fear actually is that I'm put in a position where I'm morally required to go to prison like a brave dissident, except because I have so many health issues I would probably die. From food allergies or something else.

It got worse when I read about Weev being in prison and them not accommodating his Celiac disease.

ME TOO

I was going to mention weev actually but I decided not to.

You are my phobia twin. Although I don't think about this all the time, it's just part of the general bundle of fears I have around illness.

I also get nervous in the city in places with high population density and tall buildings. My father also has this, and I never met anyone else who has this. Do you?

I don't know, the anime one seems legit. ;)

Bacon
It's not that special. Smoked Turkey, Turkey bacon, beef fry and olives have the same basic taste.

Re: Bacon
Turkey bacon is okay. I guess.

Have you ever stopped to consider the fact that in an infinite number of universes you in fact married Donald Trump? And in an equal number of universes you married Bernie Sanders?

And in some, they're married to each other!
