Stop Lying to Yourselves

Why you should believe us when we tell you that everything is made of shit & you're all dying.
It’s called “depressive realism.” Sharot writes, “If you ask mildly depressed individuals what they expect in the upcoming month, they will give you a pretty accurate account. If you ask them about their longevity or the likelihood of having a certain illness, they will give you correct estimations.”

To put it another way, I would rather be a pessimist who is, at least occasionally, pleasantly surprised than an optimist who is constantly disappointed.

Maniac Editor:
"mildly depressed"?
The official County of L.A. Mental Health Dep't. diagnosis is bi-polar, but anything resembling mania manifests as (entirely justified) rage & the urge to kill.

Pillz don't work. They're just part of the vast conspiracy to keep us & people like us from murder, which only fuels the rage.

Popularity. Like Junior High. This is mostly because I'm curious. You should all be ashamed.
