My sleep apnea has been triggering my brains end of life "orderly shut down procedure". 3 times that I can remember so far. Nearly the same each time. First clouds, then a break in the clouds. Then beautiful scenery, mountains, forests etc. Then end up at a town where all the buildings are grand and all sorts of architecture but all are in ruins and unoccupied. The town is full of newly dead people streaming through. Some conversations happening but mostly quiet. Then people line up at various doors at a large building. I always wake up coughing before reaching a door. Almost made it once. I guess sustained lack of oxygen triggers this.

 Someone told me that I had a hole in my right front tire and that it had to be fixed before I hit the road.

  And what road is that, Bokey thought while scratching his head and getting up to pee?

Ah, right. Well anyway, I was digging around for the etymology of it and someone found a phrase like "red-headed stepchild" in print in 1820 but they didn't think it was original then... but the prevailing thought is that *possibly* it's an Irish slur but probably is a way of saying someone's lineage might be in question. I thought it was sort of interesting that it seems to have been a sort of offhand insult for hundreds of years; that no one actually now or ever put any stock in it. Like it was always used metaphorically. 

 
The Irish thing makes some sense if this was really a slur, but it's not like there aren't a lot of redhead poms (intentional slur used ironically). Since it says 'stepchild', it wouldn't be about questionable lineage. I would guess that redhead were considered trash and step children commonly were treated like shit so it indicates someone who is really bottom of the barrel.

Interesting side note, here in the gold fields of Victoria, there were apparently a fair number of Chinese-Irish marriages during the gold rush because, socially, they were considered to be in the same low-class.

Yeah, but I reserve the word "hate" for something more than phenomenal assholery witch hunt/lynch mobs. /semantics

And that's a ridiculous extreme but I know what you're saying. The power to get someone removed for being inconsiderate is too great for the general public to have.

I'm not, really. Except in the sense that calling someone a bastard is a slur. Everyone knows the red-hair gene runs a little unpredictably sometimes, even centuries ago, but a red-headed kid in a family that's otherwise all non-redhead might always cause mom, dad, and every neighbor everywhere to raise an eyebrow. So that might always make for some uncomfortable hesitation. But to say "you redhead, you!" won't get them all riled up. They'll be like, yeah?

Delving a bit further into serious-land, this arrived today:

Social media has become a toxic place where the loudest and vilest rule. That’s not what the Internet was supposed to be.

Of course anyone these days who places a whit of truth in blonde jokes isn't playing with a full deck.  They need to get with the times! We ridicule the shit out of a person's politics now, because mocking religions wasn't satisfying enough!
