    The trick to stopping any addiction is to associate it with something undesirable. For example, if you want to quit smoking, try putting some cigarette butts in a can and inhale from this can whenever the urge to smoke arises. While you are doing this, also picture a guy with a hole in his throat dying on a hospital bed from lung cancer. Do this a couple of times and the urge to smoke will be gone.

    Self Pavlovian conditioning huh? Neat. I would guess that it would work especially well for Si-Fi/Fi-Si types.

    Listening to these australian celebrities talking about transforming marriage into a contract it sounds like liberalism has developed into an institutional religion proper.

    Mediocre indeed.

    P.S. How was my day you ask? Medicore, for which I'm grateful

    Aww, thanks for this Spanks!

    You know what, after listening...I think I have subconsciously subscribed to this way of thinking for a while. When we talked, it was just the 'labelling' that threw me off.

    ie. My love's often mock me for saying that my goal is not to be happy, but content.

    I think happiness is elusive and organic. Reminds me of butterflies that fly away when you approach but will alight on your arm if you sit still. I am a highly content individual and much of that has to do with appreciating the small and every-day wonders of life. I REALLY like the quote btw.

    So 15 mins ago I was rocking out with my headphones on in my room (1 floor up). And I mean like headbanging. And I look up, and there is a random guys head outside my window. It was the window cleaner. The window was open. And I just stare at him like freaked, and he asks me a question, and I say no, and then he closes the window and then cleans it...while I flee the room.

    I always want to post here but I don't have any random thoughts They're always related to something so they are not random any more. Not gonna say they always make sense. They seldomly do.
    Well. Now you have a non-random thought. Take it, do with it what you want.
