215 "The Silver Scream"
October 30, 2020

My brain is not, and never has been, wired in such a way that I associate terror--even in a controlled environment--with amusement. I understand why some folks are into it, but those are emotions that I feel most comfortable keep in entirely separate camps. I worry that if there's too much cross-over happening there, I might find myself in a situation where there's a bear screaming in my face and I will accidentally respond with a squeal of joy instead of running away, and then suddenly I'm being mauled by a bear. No thanks.
