45. armchair psychology/medicine

(DoNotRefill thinks I'm "unintentionally hilarious" ... and is probably just being clever enough to get the arid intentional humour, but not experienced enough to realize what it is.)

You ask about my blood pressure, as if what goes on here was of the slightest concern to me. Honestly. Such delusions of importance as some people evidently suffer.

I know that typing out 1000 words of organized thought must seem a Herculean task to some folks. Since the speed at which I do it is limited only by this idiot new keyboard, which makes it hard for my pinkies to keep up with my brain, please allow me to assure you all, yet once again, that you have no cause for concern. I get loads of work done in between entertaining myself hunting up facts and figures and synthesizing and analyzing them for my own enjoyment. I feel distain and even contempt for those who prefer to engage in ad personam argument or otherwise dishonest and unpleasant discourse; I feel pity for those who are actually too stupid to understand what I or anyone else writes, but they earn the same distain or contempt if their response is to engage in the same dishonesty and unpleasantness, which is a choice, not a disability.

I just can't get over the hubris, or projection, or flat-out invention, that must be present in order to make statements like those.

Lighten up, man! I don't give a crap about your health, no need to pretend you do about mine. I don't hang out here to give you hypertension, or soothe your troubled brow, or for any other purpose having to do with you or anybody else. Ye all are not the centre of my universe, or even major celestial bodies in it. Take all that energy wasted on pretending to even think about my or anyone else's well-being, and devote it to saying something worth reading. That's my advice, since we seem to be tossing advice around.
