Once again, a vision of the future related after the fact

That didn't take long.

I wish I could of stopped it. I saw the vision but why did I ignore it.....I feel bad..
What is it about some people that they have to feel as if they were an actual participant in distant tragedies, lives of vacuous celebrities and fictional comic book crossovers? That kind of mentality and behavior seems to me as being just one headache away from claiming being probed by Bigfoot on a flying saucer or stalking Steven Spielberg with a roll of duct tape.

Presumably sincere statements like the one found on the linked MySpace blog just make me want to break my "No Swears" rule and vent, filling a post with ranting, uncontrolled expletives about how ridiculously frustrating and stupid people are. Why do people have such empty lives and lack of ego that they need to be part of events that occur in the national arena? If these delusional losers want to be involved in something bigger than them then they should work a soup-kitchen, pick up trash or enlist in the military. You want to be a part of a tragedy? Go to a war zone, then.

I am nearly at the point where I don't think it would be too extreme to just scream "What is your malfunction?" in the posters' face over and over and over and over until I get a good answer. If I did that, though, I'd be considered unbalanced, right? Every day I come to appreciate the angry comedy styling of Lewis Black just a little bit more.

  1. The commonest reason for such feelings is not a cheap feint at self-importance. Although that does happen often enough, those who harbor genuine guilt about things they believe they control or could cotrol is...brace yourself: control issues. That is, many people are not comfortable with the idea of living in an indifferent universe in which even everyday events are so complex as to be unfathomable to the human brain designed for much simpler activities.

    Everyone has control issues, of course. It is usually only the ways in which we resolve those issues that differs. For certain people guilt is familiar, and more comfortable than nihilism. Much more socially acceptable is a veneer of bravado based on strict materialism and a casual disregard for questions that can't be answered.

    Either way, if it works, it works.
