To Really Move, First you need to really Stand Still

Losing a post is the worst kind of thing. Especially if you're like me, all off the cuff. Backup, what is that?

Anyway, go here (http://ping.fm/WFfbM)

And check this out, right

I would have to say that boredom is the central disease of modern man. I see boredom as a disease of the knowing function of the mind, that function which psychiatry has almost entirely neglected -- as evidenced by its failure to consider the role of ideas in the psychological development of normal human beings.


Then we've got Blaise Pascal with a zinger:
All the unhappiness of men arises from one single fact, that they cannot stay quietly in their own chamber.


Then my mind goes immediately to Joe Versus the Volcano (JVTV for short):
My father says that almost the whole world is asleep. Everybody you know. Everybody you see. Everybody you talk to. He says that only a few people are awake and they live in a state of constant total amazement.


Huzzah!
