    Anyone read this book? started reading it today and it's pretty nuts. All about human psychology, how certain things influence are subconscious which in turn influences are conscious self in ways you don't even realise.

    I've never bothered reading it, as I know exactly what it's going to say.

    go on then, enlighten me? Unless you've studied psychology in which case you probably do know what it's going to say.

    Have you ever notice people use universal truths to manipulate the masses? They just seem to lack in the details. Hmmm.........

    Papa,
    I think kermit is so old he needs a colonoscopy. His subconscience is screaming out survive. Kermit dose not want to die from cancer when Mitt Romney is going to cut off all public money that supports Sesame Street and other Jim Henson productions. Kermit has people who depend on him. "No! I won't let them down." He would say. Huzza Kermit for doing the responsible thing by seeing a well trained physician.

    http://youarenotsosmart.com/all-posts/ I think this website pretty much has all the chapters of the book on there anyway plus more. It's quite interesting, you'll notice how quite a lot of it does actually happen to you (some not all) and there's fuck all you can really do about it and there's some interesting case studies by psychologists which prove that the self delusion does affect most people.

    I do, I do, or do I not? Human perception seems flawed, under those conditions none the less even the more. Weird stuff happens when the pouring in your drink becomes above humane standards.

    my fault, clearly my fault. the shifting sands, unpredictable. it moves in ways we may not know yet. my biggest dream was a mountain of ragu, i climbed down it using scotch tape to save the princess. didnt work, there was no damn princess. i wouldve thought that was obvious. also i was shit wasted when that partuclar thing happened, and so, it goes, sometimes you get in, and everything is a-ok, but then there are those other times when it doesnt and some dickfag idiot jerk wont play ball and reject man from the door. of the club, as you well know buddy haha

    Well known indeed, no blame was given though upon intending princess saviour that is. Good vibes came our way and reprogrammed the evening to a whole new thing, a good thing from what I recall.
