Sleep in separate towns. My girl lives in North Van. I in Whistler.

The druid is an industry guy bike. I worked at Fanaytk Co. with Owen before he went to work at Norco. I worked with Wayne at John Henry's before he headed out to Kamloops. I'm sure they have worked together somewhere as well. Bike industry is small. Bike industry local manufacturing is tiny. I'd have a druid if I could stand the rear end of my bike moving all over the place underneath me.

I have started snoring over the past few years, which is clearly a sign I need to ride more and lose some weight.

HOWEVER today I turn half a century so beer wine whiskey and weed it is!

(plus its cold and rainy so no riding Frown )

I just watched a movie on movies for your Monday. Running a marathon in under 2 hours. National Geographic documentary.

It seemed like a 10 minute video. It was 55 minutes. Absolutely riveting.

It leaves me certain that race is a thing. Though we may all be equal, we are not all the same.

And it would be a whole different world if we all worked together all the time.

Because each race has it's own strength.

And if you try to crush people down, it only makes them stronger.

What is the difference between psychology, psychiatry and philosophy? Especially the first two?

A psychologist typically works through psycological issues through talk therapy and cognitive behavioural therapy.

A psychiatrist is a medical specialist who deals with mental disorders through pharmaceuticals. And maybe mental disorders is not the correct terminology.

In TV and movies they always show a psychiatrist doing talk therapy but in reality that is the realm of the psychologist.

Philosophy is a wholely different subject.

Psychology and psychiatry are both head stuff, but the latter is a qualified medical practitioner; to some extent the former is more of an academic discipline (although not entirely).

Philosophy is much broader - spanning the mind, logic, knowledge, existence, reason, meaning etc., so encompasses aspects of linguistics, maths, science, psychology, biology, theology/religion, politics... in fact some of pretty much everything and most of the big deep questions about interesting stuff in general.
The etymology of the word pretty much covers it - from the Greek for love (philo) of wisdom (sophia).
