    That linked "loneliness scale" was rather silly. It says "You may find that you could benefit by trying to reach out to others in your life -- right now. A close friend or family member whom you trust and talk to can go a long way in helping to relieve feelings of loneliness in many people." Do you think if I had "a close friend or family member," or that I knew how to "reach out to others," I would be lonely?

    What's next? Are you going to suggest that if I'm starving to death I should go out for dinner? or if I'm homeless I should buy a condo?
