Sometimes I fall over from standing still because my thoughts were too fast.
I swear I'm plenty smart.
Seek freedom and become captive of your desires, seek discipline and find your liberty.
"If you go looking for something in particular, your chances of finding it are very bad, because of all the things in the world, you're only looking for one of them. If you go looking for anything at all, your chances of finding it are very good, because of all the things in the world, you're sure to find some of them."
Some moments of Sensotard ness... done by sensors.
Whilst reversing out of a parking space..
"Watch the pillar, I did park close to it... no stop... no STOP, you're going the wrong way"
"Stop shouting at me I know what I'm doing"
"It's your fault. It's stupid parking that close to a pillar"
Whilst trying out new rollerblades..
"These things are stupid. The clips on the boots keep catching."
"When I'm going along I keep getting my feet tangled as the clips rub together."
"Let me have a look... you've got them on the wrong feet doofus."
Even when living in the moment it is entirely possible to miss the pit beneath your feet.
do you really expect a sensotard to notice these things?
I recently posted a response to a lengthy thread in the NF forum in response to a provocative and rather ignorant opening post, and after reading through all the posts thoroughly. Only when I went back to check on it did I notice that the thread had been started back in 2007, last posted in more than a year ago, and had been resurrected earlier that day. Moreover, further investigation found that the person who started the thread had only posted 7 times and not been on the site for over a year. Since the purpose of the thread was to help the person who had made the OP with certain personal issues, any response at this time would appear entirely redundant. I was in good company, though, as several other people took the time to read through and post a carefully thought out response to the OP; none of us, including the person who actually ressurected the thread, had remotely noticed that anything was amiss. It fascinates me that it's possible to process such a mass of information effectively using the N function and yet miss the fundamental details in this way
I love this thread! I thought I was alone!
Just a few examples from the last few days
TV remote control on top of the loo

think I'm getting worse and note that it is much worse when I'm stressed due to trying to think about too many things
I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
