My Actifit Report Card and Update: November 11 2022
Actifit time again. Yesterday, I went to the city with the family. We shopped at the 5-level Primark (big shop selling mostly clothes). It was very busy. We might be in a "Cost of Living" crisis but people are still shopping. After that we went to the cinema to watch Wakanda Forever. We watched it in what they called a 4DX theatre. It is in 3D with moving seats and a few other effects like squirting water. It definitely changes the experience. The movie was fun but not one of my favourite marvel movies. They had a nice tribute to Chadwick Boseman (former Black Panther) who sadly died 2 years ago.
The US midterms were held on Tuesday and they are still counting votes. This is ridiculous, the majority of vote counting is normally complete in under a day. It appears news websites are not even updating the results as numbers have remained unchanged for days. Republicans have been sitting on 211 for a long time. Altogether, there are more than 2 dozen seats that are undecided. The Senate results are almost complete, the final seat in Georgia will be decided in a run-off in December as neither main candidate reached 50%. It looks like Republicans will win the House and are slight favourites to win the Senate in the run-off. It is quite likely that election fraud is taking place again. Next few weeks will be interesting.
I just posted the final Buying and Selling Game Contest as part of the monthly contests. It is time for some different contests. These contests have been going for several years but I believe it is time for a wider variety of contests. I will make an announcement next month. The final contest is off to a good start with 8 entries so far. It would be great to get over 12. Results will be announced in 5 or 6 days.
In my other post, I discussed why people do not sufficiently question the information they are told. People are too occupied and too stressed to do so. People fill their free time with entertainment and social media. Businesses have done a great job of capturing people's attention. There is limited time to do much else. People's lives have also become more stressful (e.g Covid-19 and inflation). This causes people to direct their focus on what is causing the stress. Stress also affects people's mental and physical health. This affects people's ability and desire to challenge the information they receive.
That wraps up this week's Actifit Report and Update. I hope everyone has a great weekend.
