Actually, I find I do a number of the things on that list and I don't really feel miserable. A good part of me enjoys being the gruff, smart ass I am.

Is this part of your little 10-step plan for making yourself happier like the “30 second rule” you mentioned in the rant thread?

Nah it came up in stumble upon and i thought it would make an interesting thread. And my 30 second rule is pretty awesome so far :] maybe i'll write an article on it someday; ‘Kittens; the untapped secret to optimism and success. uncovering lifes secret potential has never been so adorable.’

I wonder how many other contradictory instances that thing contains :)

1. Wearing clothes make you sick
2. Being naked is EVIL

First of all, there are people who do believe both at differing times and one is a compensation for the other. Perfect example of etc. etc. I hang around too many CSW, MSWs and psychologists as well as too many people suffering from this pathology.

Recognizing the symptoms is the first step towards becoming coping without being miserable. If you cope without being miserable, congratulations you're healthy!

For some of us it's a long journey up hill. And we really hate it when people dismiss our illness, so just keep looking over your shoulder whenever it's dark. We could be behind you with all sorts of wonderful weapons. We rule the night!

(Insert manical laughter here)

I'm not suffering from mental illness, I'm enjoying it. ;)

Maybe I'm happy being a miserable perfectionist who never sleeps or eats properly.

46. Overwork.

???

What do I do?

24. Absorbing all the bad news daily in the papers.

One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors.
-Plato-


You can't just not care. :(


12. Constantly think about the past.
13. Constantly think about the future.

I'll just live in the present and spend it all on drugs. :)

8. Suspicious of everything.

Trust the government. The government loves you.

5. Work in a job you hate.

Its better than being a bum on the street. I hate my job but like the people I work with.

lol!

Kyupol, if you have such a big problem with how the government is now, why don't you do something about it? And I don't mean posting silly things about “big brother” on a webcomics forum. If this is something that means so much to you, why don't you try to get into politics or something? It might not work out but what you're doing now certainly isn't changing anything to the way you want it.

Kyupol lives in Canada though, right? At least it would be more interesting than the bloody conservatives.

if i understand the teachings of Kyupol ,the goverment is unfixably corrupt and politics doesn't work .
the best way is to spread the word through the internet and open peoples eyes

Last I checked it was the US. But if you want him, you're more than welcome to him. We've got scores of people just like kyupol. There's plenty of crazy to go around.

Also, I think the kitten picture there is probably the only thing so far that's likely to work even 75% of the time. These lists make me wince. Trying to quantify or order methods in which it's possible to make oneself happy seems like an incredibly futile and pointless exercise. It generally seems like a no brainer that if you want to be happier you can do damn near anything that you even remotely think you'll like.

Well there you go making fun of the mentally ill again!
Now remember the quote that comes before that? (The only thing a man should take seriously is the fact that nothing is to be taken seriously)

Then you wouldn't wince, but then I wouldn't expect such subtlies from you. Indeed you despise the menatlly ill, insult us, degrade us, indeed we're not worthy to shine your shoes! We should be selling pencils on the street and dancing in our chains for your enjoyment as you tour the asylum! That's it, you perverse little git faced worm, you want all of us coping with our problems to be locked up as opposed to dealing with your own inner demons! Hah! Insult me and my demented friends! Next you're going to be asking to borrow money! lol!

Wow. Someone is erm…excitable. You usually have very intelligent, well thought out posts, but I do have to say that your last one there was confusing, which might be what Skullbie was referring to. I don't think she was deliberately making fun of the mentally ill. (She might have been, tho. I don't really know)

No, you missed his point Hippy. He was making a joke because Skulbie dissed him. ;)

His post isn't meant to be taken seriously.
But he prolly was a bit miffed even so, because Skull was a bit rude.

I'd have been miffed. :)
