The point of giving prompts for open threads is to provide a jumping off point from which a conversation can start, and then range wherever it damn well pleases from there.
And I do confess that my brain has atrophied and I am out of ideas for jumping off points in spite of there being seemingly infinite possibilities.
So, without a prompt, talk.
Talk, damn you, TALK!
(I think said with the cadence of, “Live, damn you, LIVE!” but I can’t remember if that was The Abyss or Young Frankenstein or some other movie. It gets said often enough regardless.)
