Superlative stupidity

I have to get a new hobby. Apparently I think too much. Something to shut down my brain, make everything seem fine... Religion?

there is no such thing as thinking too much. whoever told you you did shall be cast into the ocean and forcibly drowned. it is only thought that makes the world at all, and "too much is never enough" when it comes to ideas.

Interesting...
I think that it may have been an inaccurate accusation. I think that my accuser meant to say that I feel too much. Which is different, and uncommon. Compassion is important to me. It may well be my downfall.

Re: Interesting...
compassion is simply the complementary instict of ressentiment (nor resentment, ressentiment). it is the psychological doppelganger of slave morality, and much like its philosophic twin, demands that the strong, for no reason other than an arbitrary "just cuz", demands that the strong sacrifice their interests to the weak, that the unique sacrifice his interests to the masses, that the self sacrifice his interest to the "others". It is Emmanuel Levinas's senseless imperatives demanding service of the other. Compassion then, is the third head of the great monster that will devour the human race.

typo
the comment in the parentheses should read: "not resentment, ressentiment"

I've decided that I'm not going to take it to heart anymore when people tell me I'm too emotional, I feel too much, I'm too senstive. What they're saying is they can't handle it. Well, too bad. That's how I am and they are just going to have to grow up and cope.

Of course, I'm in the early phases of actually implementing this. No doubt it will need work.

I think tea should do the trick. A very special tea, of course!

hot or iced?

mild or spiced?

but definitely it should be a bright blissful florescent pink! with a little extra sugar!

Television. Prime time television, at that. It'll do the trick.
