We're Not Into Math, We're Into Feelings

"It only takes two and a half minutes to piss away your good will." Conan talks about actors who become assholes when they're forced into an unprotected setting. Fascinating. Never thought about that. I guess if you pretend to be other people all day, it's probably hard to be yourself.

"We’re not into math, we’re into feelings." How can we think about logic in a time like this? How can we think at all in a time like this? That's the problem. Too much emotionality, not enough rationality. Thanks, Ace Man.

"Grounds for a healthy dose of skepticism." Cynicism is the easy way out, and it doesn't look good on anyone. Skepticism, on the other hand, is a healthy way to navigate the world. Especially when congressional stupidity is at an all time high.

"Falling into a deep hole of day drinking alone in my apartment." I was eavesdropping on a conversation between two unemployed people yesterday. The girl was discussing the importance of a daily routine, as it prevented her from depression. Couldn't agree more.

"Lock eye contact and experience the reality of each other." Conversations force us to challenge our beliefs. Emoticons don't. Sadly, we have an entire generation who doesn't know how to talk to people with their mouths. We must rescue them from their thumbs.

"The majority has done my thinking for me." The only answer to the question, "What do you think about Anne Hathaway?" is, "Who cares?" Seriously. I'm sure she's a lovely person, but there has to be a better use of our calories.

"Vigilantly on the lookout for something to be offended by." The realization that nobody can truly offend you is incredibly liberating.
