Or aren’t worth it. Or both. Nova October 6, 2021 at 12:20 am 2 years ago Oh, and the ability to judge family objectively, on the same spectrum as anyone else… Efogoto October 6, 2021 at 1:47 am 2 years ago “We won’t *give* her our love, but we will let her purchase it … for a time.” Coyoty October 6, 2021 at 2:46 am 2 years ago Have they considered going into politics?

Best to look at them as damaged goods and set them on some planet or another ship. They are not worth spending another microsecond on. And they are boring so very boring and single minded too.
