You know what they say, "if it was easy, everybody would do it." There is enough death and destruction to last the entirety of humanity countless times over and yet we persist, arrogantly heedless of the glaring lessons bought and paid for in full by the blood of the martyred, plus interest that is the pain and suffering of those left behind. Insanity much?
Do we really know no better than to sow the seeds of hatred and annihilate the future by burdening it with the task of reaping a legacy of vengeful retribution, each generation damning the next?
How about trying something different a change? Let's put down the weapons, cease the hatred and vitriol and come to the understanding that while differences will always exist, peace and prosperity can only prevail if we all come together and learn to coexist for the sake of the common good. It's about goddamn time!
How do you budget for the holidays, when it's all too easy to get carried away in the "spirit of giving" and instead of getting a fresh start, end up with extra servings of debt before the New Year has even begun?!
Not to get all "sciencey" on you but studies have shown that watching the cash get physically taken from you at the register lights up the areas of the brain that process pain in exactly the same way they would if you were to receive an actual physical injury. However, using alternative forms of payment (credit, debit, digital etc.) have no such effect. In essence, you don't FEEL the loss. Perhaps you might want to keep this in mind the next time you are planning to purchase something you sorta kinda want but don't really need.
If ever you need to brave the harsh winter cold, try eating really spicy food, the kind that fills your belly with Dragonfire and then see if the cold can stop you. Let me know what you think in the comments below.
