There’s a Moth that looks like a spider
It’s always the weekends you expect to be a little quieter that turn out to be the weirder ones.
Got a booze with an actor on friday, had a good friend scream at me for nothing for an hour the same night. Then last night it was off to supermax for a boogie and some disco fun. That ended up with every middle aged woman on the premises trying to fire in to me, still not sure why.
I’m not sure if this was a good weekend or a bad one.
Makes me sick seeing people make Facebook profiles for their children.
But the 8-hour workday is too profitable for big business, not because of the amount of work people get done in eight hours (the average office worker gets less than three hours of actual work done in 8 hours) but because it makes for such a purchase-happy public. Keeping free time scarce means people pay a lot more for convenience, gratification, and any other relief they can buy. It keeps them watching television, and its commercials. It keeps them unambitious outside of work.
We’ve been led into a culture that has been engineered to leave us tired, hungry for indulgence, willing to pay a lot for convenience and entertainment, and most importantly, vaguely dissatisfied with our lives so that we continue wanting things we don’t have. We buy so much because it always seems like something is still missing.— Your Lifestyle Has Already Been Designed (via spellingmistakescostlives)
