It's OK to talk to yourself.

 

It's even OK to argue with yourself.

 

If you argue with yourself and lose, then you might have a problem ...

Are you claiming that if I have more than one personality, that I have a problem ?

 

Perhaps I am simply a person who is never alone even when locked in a room with rubber walls...

 

Regarding the fires in Australia and misinformation, how about the fire maps that were disseminated and which show fires in areas that had no fires.

 

All in all, I am sad about the hundreds of thousands of animal lives that were lost due to this.

Re: Misinformation and the Australian fires

There is truth to your post, rslade, and significant debate has raged about some of these inaccurate figures circulated about arson being the cause of bushfires. 

 

A good article which helps to clarify the truth can be located here by the national public broadcaster in Australia, the ABC: https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-01-11/australias-fires-reveal-arson-not-a-major-cause/11855022

False positives. Contributing to waste of resources, and possibly directing
resources away from areas that need them.

Apparently they also have false negatives, showing no fires in some areas that
were burnt out. A number of people have been denied emergency and recovery
funds due to this.

I prefer the theory that those with dementia make new friends, every day ...
