I notice that most people won't stop for anyone stranded on the road.

I would but I'm too busy. I usually have something to do.

I once saw a pretty girl changing her tire on the highway and no one would stop.

Girl to Cops: I fileted his liver because he insulted me by implying I didn't know how to do the job myself.
Cops to Girl: So why is he all sweaty and grimy?
Girl: Well, I might as well let him do the work and then kill him!

I've stopped a few times. Usually it's to help push somebody who got stuck in the snow. I stopped and helped a guy a couple months ago and he seemed kind of weirded out by it.

I love stopping to help people, but usually can't because I have to be somewhere.

Just be careful at night. In isolated areas, it can be a trap. Mugging. Or worse.

https://medium.com/lifeomic/why-your-gut-microbes-love-intermittent-fasting-5716948281a3

Interesting science driven article on fasting, sleep aging and your gut.

We have like 100 trillion microbes in or gut. Wrap your head around that!

Anyway, even very short girlie fasts do a lot of good.

They say it's best not to eat at night which is a bummer. I really love picking something up on the way home and eating it in bed with a little TV right before sleep. I guess that's fairly bad.

I've only stopped in very busy areas during the day. Major roads, shopping districts, etc.

Eating a snack right before bed is fine. I've been doing it for decades.

I would definitely try spending hours in the gym.

Who was it that said "The goal of life is to help people." or something similar? I failed pretty big a month ago. About 1am, driving from a casino, flush with cash, in the arctic countryside of WI, about 1 degree and windy out, someone was flagging me down and not wearing winter gear. Speeding, immediate full power goosebumps, I cruised on by out of fear. Why couldn't I think to call a cop immediately? Guess I'm just too used to thinking that they're the bad guys or something. I know better. Turned out there was a village a couple minutes drive from there at least. But that person may have died because I didn't stop. My reaction (or lack of a reaction) still bugs me.

It could have been a trap. Probably had a jacket on the side of the road.
