IS RUDE DUDE
Hopefully you have no problem identifying the following odours; strawberry, smoke, soap, menthol, clove, pineapple, natural gas, lilac, lemon, and leather, because researchers have discovered that those of us who cannot may go on to develop Alzheimers, the most infamous form of Dementia. It is estimated that three per cent of people over 65, and up to twenty per cent of those over 85, suffer from this horrible disease. The thought of losing my thoughts terrifies me.
Like most of you I treasure learning, experiences, knowledge, and self discovery above accumulating and hoarding material possesions..damn right I'm bitter...the prospect of fading to black is a terrifying proposition. There are other lesser known but equally sinister forms of Dementia many of which have regretably been discovered by men with weird names...how would you like to be told that you may have Binswangers?LIFE is a predominantly isolated journey that is primarily experienced in your mind..except when you say stupid things out loud.
There is little doubt that after hundreds of thousands of years of evolutionary tweaking, most Homo Escapeons arrive more-or-less pre-programmed to do two things; 1. wallow in delight at the suffering of another and 2. if they absolutely have to, co-operate with others, but only if it benefits them somehow.
Any of you remember Maslow's hierarchy of needs from your Intro to Psychology? This thingamabob..
Far too many of us are currently under the impression that there is a direct correlation betwixt a person's disposable income, and gaining access up in the la-di-f*cking-da Blue area. That may be true to a degree but what I noticed over the past 50 years, is that so many of the 1% of the population (f*cking cheaters!) that get there, lose a lot of Yellow..well obviously not the SEX part you ninny, but the intimacy. That's the best part of SEX right?
Oh sure "those people" have Orange & Red up the Wazoo, but if you don't have friends or especially intimacy, who cares if you're self*ckingactualized?
How many of you thought to yourself, "Hmmm well if I was financially independent and at the top of my field, I suppose that I could make a go of it for a while?".. c'mon.. wouldn't you like to see what that feels like? How long do you think that you could stand it?
The problem with LIFE is that very few of us ever get to be self*ckingactualized never mind rich. That is why schadenfreude was invented folks. We can sit back and judge the uber rich jetsetting beautiful megalomaniacal twats and take joy in their miserable lonely empty pathetic erratic personal lives which are paraded under our noses to the Nth degree by the Media.
Maybe that dumbass chart is all upside down and being self*ckingactualized is actually the starting point for knowing who you are and how to balance all of those other things at the same time..managing all of those areas of your life simultaneously to reach a balance...what I call the Oasis of Homeostasis...aka dare I say it, Happy.Therefore in lieu of pursuing Fame and Riches, I've always wanted to really know me and find out why the hell I'm not Famous and Rich. I love stuff like this
YOU JUST GET ME? Why? Because I don't think that we can ever learn enough about why we have failed so spectacularly, and so that we can become better consumers of Schadenfreude.
