    Why Isn't This Working!?

    This is awful. My usual sources of entertainment just aren't working anymore. It's all so empty. There's nothing interesting on Youtube (crazy to believe, but it's true), none of the shows I follow are airing at the moment, I don't feel like reading anything, I can't play games...

    It Happens At Nighttime

    So there's this idea

    that we only use ten percent of our brains. If you believe that i think you should be picked off by natural selection for your inability to realize that when you actually see a picture of brain waves there is activity everywhere. And not only that we use perpetually all of our...

    My Solution

    My solution to boredom is to eat. I makes me feel great to have a very full belly and them I have these wonderful rolls of fat to play with. That keeps me entertained almost endlessly. Of course, the fat cells demand more and more food, so it's a cycle of eating and fattening...
