Welcome to the Drunken Mumbler…

A blog for Men, with facts, fiction, and mental health tips strewn in with rambling thoughts and a dose of bullshit. Everything here will not be completely coherent or without contradiction – that’s kinda’ the point. This is the examination toward an authentic life. Cheers.

So, if you stayed with me through the three part posting on absurdity, I think we need a break. To that end, here’s a hands-on post with some actual practicality.   I suppose I should preface this post with the obligatory disclaimer that I’m not a medical doctor...

Absurdity pt.3 (Process v Outcome)

Human Tri-Dimensionality (While Staying At Home)

I doubt I can offer anything new in the endless supply of how-to-dos and what-to-dos on every topic imaginable, while quarantining. I admit I’ve gotten caught-up in mindlessly scrolling for the best home workout routine, and Brian Green’s Equation of the Day has found...
