Apparently it was written as a vent/analogy to world politics at the time (I don't remember the details anymore). This book is one of the reasons why when I see people get very paranoid in a group I start to .

    I just laughed hard enough at something completely pointless that I couldn't even breath... like laughing for 10 fucking minutes straight without being able to stop

    I love moments like that! They can be oddly concerning, but they feel damn good .

    Though I don't quite follow what you're referring to with me (I think I do though?).

    and seriously... I couldn't even breath because I COULDN'T STOP LAUGHING... I think that everyone does that once or twice a year, like their brain breaks and something rather mundane becomes the funniest thing in the history of all funny things and they laugh and laugh and laugh

    Ah! Yeah I'd say so. The thing that got to me the most is that I just wanted to go in there and make all the crazy people stop being crazy, and make the liars stop lying. It was this vicious feedback loop that none one could just strong arm into stopping and it pissed me off SO bad. Not to mention the social constraints of such a religious society pisses me off A LOT. It's essentially no different than me getting pissed at something over the fact that I can't do something to solve it.

    I totally agree. I remember one time I completely lost my shit over the mental image of my friend using a ride-on floor buffer, fell asleep while riding it, and crashed into a wall (it was from a story he told me). Essentially things that will make me lose my shit are the types of things you'd see on america's funniest home videos . It's a pleasent brain fart!

    oh my god I wish my contact lens would stop feeling like it's stabbing me every time I blink! My reaction needs to finish so I can go home and take it out! AHHHH.

    I'm mad at Bob Marley. I wish he had been nicer to his first wife. She seems really sweet and beautiful.

    Sometimes I do actually wish I could be content with just sitting still for a moment, but that inner restlessness always seems to pop its head in just when things are starting to settle down and says, "it's time to go!" And off I am on a new life adventure.

    I guess I wasn't meant to lead a normal life.

    (this isn't meant to be a rant but eh, more just like a passing thought, I like the way things are )
