My Big "gun" And what to do with it?
    #2113712 - 11/17/03 01:08 AM (13 years, 20 days ago)

Well then. Everyday I get to watch some Chimp with more money than his intelligence warrants driving a H2 (to drive to the grocery store) or some Jackass discussing how he just bought a Desert Eagle (even though within 20 feet a $1 knife is more deadly) or some fool woman purchases a Greyhound purebred when she only has a one bedroom apartment.

Such examples of compensation of personal tangible possession when one lacks an internal satisfaction have become the standard in our commercialized psyche.

I am placing bets currently with some of my associates as we sit here, trackside sipping mimosas on how far this shit will go...

How far will we humans take this overcompensation to make ourselves "happy" or at least distracted, past defacing ourselves with surgery, and possession?

What next when the fix is no good?

Predictions my friends?

I think we'll get into the terraforming business and start molding the rest of the solar system to suit our needs. Of course, we'll have to introduce some sort of religion to the indigenous bacteria or whatever. I mean, how else are we gonna get them to obey us?

Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.---senior doobie

kaiowas is right, its hard to predict what crazy shit us humans will come up with. check out this thread about nanotechnology.

i definitely think small computers will be interfaced chemically with the human organism in the next few years.

There are two options: option A and option B

Option A: Human beings will consume until they have reached the point ot extinction. If they continue to consume at the current rate, the United States in particular, extinction will occur within the next 75 years.

Option B: Human beings will come to understand that happiness is not solely a product of material obects, external to one's self, which can be conveniently aquired. Rather happiness is a product of the interns of one's self. It is a product of the human brain.

Ah yes, the human brain. Easily taken for granted, the brain is the human's most valuable possetion. In the search for true happiness, the human being blindly looks outwards. He or she, should at the very least, start their search by looking inwards. If this is realized by the human within the next 75 years, chances are that the outer world will be come to be explored in great deapth.

Our western materialist, capitalist culture inspires us to seek satisfaction through the aquisition of such useless, "token" goods, though they're not apparent as such to most people.  Thank god that my experiences thusfar in my relatively short life have already led me away from such fruitless pursuits.  A good education, surfing, drugs, literature (esp. terence  :grin: ) film (american beauty, etc), music, and other forms of art have truly saved me.  Did I mention you good people here at the shroomery? Yea, you guys to.  I owe you my life :heartpump:

I think 75 years is a bit of a wild estimate.

There is a third option... we'll figure out a way to consume and renew. Harvest from foreign planets.

As for all humans realizing that greed and wealth are not the best route to happiness... I think that may be a bit of a pipe dream. Maybe it's possible, but people have been preaching that for thousands of years, and most people aren't listening.

Whuddup my brother? G-r-e-a-t to see you in FL.

...or some Jackass discussing how he just bought a Desert Eagle (even though within 20 feet a $1 knife is more deadly)

When I was robbed at gunpoint two Thanksgivings ago, I wished he had a $1 knife instead of that Desert Colt Eagle. Methinks his holiday would have turned out a little differently.  :wink:
