Harry Kahne: Multiple Mentality

This is so freakin AWESOME that I hesitate to describe it to you. I met a guy at an old job who used to give demonstrations of this skill. It is astounding and it can be taught to anyone who will discipline themselves to undertake the excersizes. The whole secret is here for free. All that you have to do and all that you need to know. Check yourself then wreck yourself.

Logic gone wrong

A herd of buffalo can move only as fast as the slowest buffalo, and when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular culling of the weakest members.

In much the same way the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells.

Excessive intake of alcohol, we all know, kills off brain cells, but naturally it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first.

In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, constantly making the brain a faster and more efficient machine

Consider this old logic/reasoning chestnut:
They say God is Love, and it is also said that Love is Blind. Ray Charles is Blind, therefore Ray Charles is God.

Three Dimensions of Kick Ass make a geometric solid of FUCK YEAH!

Has anyone else ever noticed that there are more than one 'real you's' in your life.

There's the real you that unconsciously uses foul language in everyday conversation. The one that thinks the three stooges are funny and was responsible for several punk-rock years of your earlier life. Oh yeah, that was the real you. For real, dont be ashamed. That was a free and unbridled, animal you, going through your daily life.

There's another real you too. The one that sometimes remembers all the things you learned in school about math and science and literature. The one that, every once in a while, causes you to stop and just let the dial sit on the classical music station while you're driving in your car, appreciatingthe glory of human achievment. The one that's educated and expressive and concerned and sometimes wise. Dont be ashamed of that one either, even though it's not as macho as the other you.

I have a couple of real me's, as I like to call them. Yeah, I like the Circle Jerks, but I also like Dead can Dance. Those are the extreme examples. I seem to have many halfway me's in the mix too though that color my reactions to the world around me. The one that's sick of bitchy women. The one that loves all the women I know. The one that cares about other people and the one that is completely okay with it if some idiot gets run over for stepping out in front of me while I a trying to get somewhere in my car.

All these are equally real and they are in direct conflict or at least partial conflict with each other. It's a swirl of contradictions. Yet it is the truth.
