while considering life, the universe and everything today, i started to wonder if we don't solve our problems because of the emotional and psychological pain that we associate with them. its true that oftentimes life issues are much more comfortable when ignored and denied.
nothing box theory holds that man is capable of being completely absent of thought. many of my friends hold to this comedic worldview, but this doesn't seem to describe my experience. i don't think i'm naturally able to just consciously ignore everything.
in other news, i now have limitless excuses for not using capitalization and not inserting a space between the words "alot."
this post, featured on the blog "hyperbole and a half" has changed my life.
