Everything outside "the norm" is a disease/disorder now…

Blargh. Yet another rant. I swear, the "rant" tag in my tag cloud is gonna get so big as to totally obscure the other ones eventually…

Anyways:

I know I probably spend way too much time on and/or put way too much stock into Wikipedia, but I just got done reading the article on "Medicalization", and I must say, that seems to be the way things are going (at least here in the US): basically a pill for everything that "cures what ails...

How do these men stand to get up in the mornings?

I don't understand how one can essentially devote their life to proving that effectively, no one has any real "control" over their lives. It's sickening, to say the least.

(Yes, I know that's a horrible exaggeration, but try to understand where...

Why must I put up with this sh*t?

Yes, this is filed under "Existential Rants", but it's more of a general rant.

UFOs, aliens, "disclosure", gubmint conspiracies, etc...I can't stand it anymore!

My mother is utterly convinced that she's an "integral part" of some "spiritual mission" to "help the planet ascend"...yes...geniunely...no sh*t. On an almost daily basis I have to put up with her talking to friends over the phone about it all. It drives me...

...if it prevents you from going completely bat-sh*t insane?

I willfully avoid topics such as psychology and neuroscience. Why? Because if I actually studied them, they'd shred what last few bits of my worldview I desperately hold on to into tiny pieces. No, scratch that..they'd decimate them into proverbial subatomic particles.

Am I to be considered an "ignorant fool" because of this? Simply because I refuse to swallow the idea that nothing I do...

I just got through reading a bunch of quotes from the fortune collection. Specifically, the results of fortune off/atheism.

...all I have to say is that it's too much. So many differing perspectives with only one thing in common: a lack of belief in a higher power (a "God", if you will). This isn't to say that I believe in a "God", as it were, but I'd like to think that there's some kind of meaning to life other than some hypothetical equation that explains...
