Not around.

I am away from my computer and can't do one of these right now. Was a big enough pain to write this much from my phone's touch screen.

Serious Questions: Catholics

Does the pope get a paycheck? If so, how much? Also, what does he spend it on exactly,  seems like most of his needs would be taken care of by his minions. Assuming the pay is good, has anyone risen to the rank of pope just to pay off a bookie or something? Not saying something like that has happened every time, just asking if one or two pulled something like that.

How much actual freedom does he have to do as he would like? Betting getting some cocaine and hookers is out of the question. However, could he announce he is in the mood for some burgers and head down to get some? Or like he if he was a foodie, could he go down to the farmer's market to pick his own produce? I know he has minions for this kind of thing, but if he were inclined how much could he take care of himself?

How much corruption is the average pope involved in? It undoubtedly goes up and down as popes come and go. Is it more or less than the average cop? Is it any better than the average politician?

How much can a pope push his own agenda? How much of what he does is just toeing the company line? The current one has made a few comments, and "his people" then claim "he didn't mean that". Doesn't seem to happen as much now, maybe he got a stern talking too. Not sure from who, I thought he was at the top.

Writing Frustration

Trying to write fiction. It is harder than I remember. Perhaps I need to collect my ideas more, outline things a bit.

I used to write a lot of fiction, but then other things got in the way. Did everything free writing back then. Usually worked out pretty well. This isn't working for me now. Could  be that I have gotten a bit rusty, need to shake off the rust.

Frustration is definitely setting in. However, I can't allow this to defeat me.

The "I don't care guy".

Ever meet the guy that is constantly shouting, how they don't care, and don't value what people have to say? It seems like for someone that "doesn't care", they spend a lot of time trying to convince others of that fact. It's almost like they care. Mostly because they do, and their insecurities are forcing them too.

You encounter this more with young people. Tend to be people that are adults, but only in a legal sense. They tend to come from bad situations, and their fake apathy is something they cling on to cope. With time they grow out it, or they end it all. Ending it all, is of course the ultimate expression of caring way too much.

You might ask why I am thinking about this. A fair question, I don't really know. It might be that I have not encountered one lately, almost like I am too old to have people young enough for this behavior around me. Feels good.
