    Is there any science behind this or is it just some guy pulling stuff out of his ass that he feels people can relate to?

      Just like astrology signs, tarot cards, and all the other shotgun blast bullshit. No one really fits these categories but everyone can relate to some of the items listed and will fit themselves in.

      So yeah this is ass logic, not science.

        Thank you for the phrase “ass logic”. It just became a permanent part of my vocabulary.

        Anytime you see content, words, signs, articles or statements without any evidence, research, attributions or citations … it’s Ass Logic

        Anyone can come up with a feel good piece of information or information that validates their thoughts or emotions or beliefs … just because it makes you feel good or feel ‘right’ or intelligent … it doesn’t mean that it’s good, valuable or useful information.

        And if you surround and fill yourself with only the information you want that is non-critical to how to feel, think or believe … then you will force yourself into a reality that will be completely disconnected to the rest of the world. Sure you can find people who think and believe like you, but you can also all be caught in the same disconnected reality together … we usually refer to that as a religion, or a cult.

        Yah, it seems to be trying to not be that, to be more plain speech, but is failing at being accurate.

      Yay!

      Gotta catch 'em all. Ain’t self-fulfilling prophecies grand? We get saddled with what are essentially debuffs for life, and as an added bonus we attract people who make all of them worse or even exploit them. And because we’re aware of this, it’s totally our own fault and responsibility to fix ourselves. If people keep taking advantage of us, well, that’s on ourselves for letting them!

      Why the fuck are we even born in the first place? As NPC’s for “real” people to have their way with?
