“Genius is no more than childhood recaptured at will, childhood equipped now with man’s physical means to express itself, and with the analytical mind that enables it to bring order into the sum of experience, involuntarily amassed.”When was the last time you skipped or hopped? When was the last time you giggled like a 2 year old? Jumped up and down until you felt dizzy?
This site has lots of ways to unleash your inner child. Here are some examples:
Say “aah-eeee-ahh-eee” with a deep voice, but relax your face and shake your head back and forth hard and fast so that your cheeks flap. Sounds like Elmer Fudd when he’s trying to shake off the dizzyness that comes from being hit on the head. Try this next time you get flattened by a falling anvil, see if it helps.
Dry your tongue!
Get a clean cloth or paper towel. Stick out your tongue, then dry it thoroughly with the cloth. Keep sticking it out so it will air-dry a bit more. Now challenge your friends to feel your dry tongue surface. Weird and creepy. Grab the hands of an unsuspecting passersby, and force them up against your warm dry tongue.
Zen Fluid Dynamics
Sit in a sunbeam in a dimly-lit room. Light a stick of incense, hold it vertically, then move it upwards and stop suddenly, with a jerk. A perfect smoke-ring will be launched from the burning tip. Move the incense upwards, then suddenly jerk downwards, then repeat. You can launch fast smoke-rings through the center of slow ones, create side-by side rows, etc. In a draft-free room they persist for ages, and soon the air will be full of huge grey thin circles. Contemplate the silent Chaos.
This is totally for fun. Positive thinking is the next best thing to chocolate. From the book Are ya Bovvered?, 500 reasons not to give a shit.
Positive people are annoying as hell. When something really shitty has happened and you just want to wallow in your own worthlessness, they always trot out platitudes like “there’s plenty more fish in the sea” or “it just wasn’t meant to be” or “maybe it’s for the best”. Arrrgghhh.
It’s pseudo mind-fooling crap which helps sad losers tolerate their miserable pointless lives.
If you think the worst, you can never be disappointed.
Why should someone starving in Africa think positively – exactly – proving that it’s a decadent upyour- arse Western way of dealing with the world when life gets too comfortable.
Thinking the best of people gets you screwed over every time.
Shit happens, regardless of whether you are thinking happy thoughts; life really sucks most of the time – deal with it.
X-Factor auditions: Ten thousand wannabe twats who are living proof that thinking positively about your worse than meagre abilities
makes you look a twat
wastes everybody else’s time
turns you into fodder for exploitation TV culture.
Maybe if Americans weren’t so goddam smiley smug positive all the time they would look around them and realize that they’ve destabilized the Middle East, they are stopping the rest of the world from saving the planet, their president is a complete retard and everybody hates them.
Behind every cloud the sun is shining – yeah, but you can’t see it because there a friggin’ great cloud in the way.
You know those ads next to your gmail emails. They sometimes come up with the funniest things. So here you are folks 4 cheap apartments (I am not sure why anyone would go out and buy 4) in Cairo for less than 1 million. Just in case you don’t have a million dirhams (around 1.5 million Egyptian Pounds) you can always buy cheap shoes and bags and call your friends cheap to brag about it.
