    You clicked on it didn't you? I guess you also run with scissors also?

    You've heard the saying 'What you don't know can't hurt you'  - ever wonder why? The following information has caused greater minds that yours to snap, crackle and *POP* to the point where many committed suicide or were locked up in an insane asylum for the rest of their lives.

    Or maybe it's not the information itself but just deep thinkers who ponder about the universe who are generally abnormal. Which would make sense, super brainy types are abnormal in the sense that they sit and think way too much because any rational person would rather choose wine, women and song instead. Studies have shown that the more retrospective you are, the more likely to be depressed.

    You are still reading? OK, here it is, it doesn't  sound very philosophical but apparently you have a death wish:
    It's the Second Law of Thermodynamics and the heat death of the universe. It's the same law cited by creationists who mistakenly believe that because of ever increasing entropy, evolution doesn't exist.

    Your only hope now is to quit thinking and start drinking. Or go outside for a bike ride, take a walk with your honey.

    Not thinking too much - may save your life!

    If the entire universe, with all it's multiple dimensions -  goes into a heat death and souls are part of the multi-universes, does that mean souls will also 'die' eventually?

    (no - Arizona will not expand to the size of the universe - but if it did - it would cool it down a lot)

    The physicist Boltzmann hanged himself. "The idea that the second law of thermodynamics or "entropy law" is a law of disorder ... is due to Boltzmann's view of the second law" - wiki

    There's a bunch of other people. Wanna know who they are?

    From http://www.nonzero.org/chap17.htm - "Schrodinger saw life against the backdrop of the second law of thermodynamics. The second law ... is the one that sounds so depressing: entropy, disorder grows inexorably, structure decays. The logical culmination of this trend is a day when all molecules are randomly distributed. No planets, no nothing but sameness."

    Well - wouldn't that be God? The alpha & omega, never ending circle/sphere, hypersphere? Doesn't perfection means that no other changes can be made? What a boring existence! Is that why God made imperfect beings, to entertain a bored deity? Are we playthings to be laughed at while we are in pain and suffering?

    I'm currently listening to the audiobook called 'Decoding Reality' by Vlatko Vedral and he mentions about the suicide/insanity factor in folks who study the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics. I wonder if it's the same when learning about neuroscience like the Batman Shooter in Aurora.

      Son, I think you meant to say "introspective". Retrospective is looking back in time. There are no studies that indicate retrospection will make you depessed. When I look back, I am reminded of the peace and beauty of the bluegrass meadows of my childhood, and meeting Layton Woodruff down by the creek for a picnic basket lunch and after a dram of sweet Kentucky Burbon . . . a roll in the hay.

      If you want to be a psuedo-intellectual, work on your vocabulary. It really took the the rue out of the gumbo.

      If I'd wanted to read something of this length, I'd have gone and read a hub.

      What's an 'insane asylum', btw? That's as far as I got.

      ptosisposted 9 years ago

      I shoulda made a hub about it but I already did a hub today on neuroscience.
      Insane asylum is the place like in the movie Bram Stoker's Dracula, where the guards have caged boxes protecting their head and the doctor is hooked of morphine. Or where Freddy Kreugar was conceived.

        That won't make you any money here on HubPages (I should know, I used to have 213 Hubs on the subject). Write something on baked beans -- it does much better.

          Yeah I get a little jealous when I see somebody with over a thousand followers in a whole lot shorter time than I've been around, I look at the hubs and it's nothing what I like to write. Then I come across a hubber with only 4 followers and great fantastic hubs such as this guy here:

            Followers mean nothing. They won't pay your rent. It's organic traffic that counts!

              Hey, how come you deleted 213 hubs as you said? Why?

              "weekend is now following you"

              Thanks you for your heartfelt but useless gesture! ( I'm being facetious because you said followers don't pay the rent)

                weekendposted 9 years agoin reply to this

                Because neuroscience and the like won't make money, and baked beans, big hair and guacamole will.

                Following is always a nice gesture, but that's all. smile

      What an awesome law! It's yet more proof that humans can do anything, even overcome scientific rules.

          We can make water flow uphilll and heat flow back to the source. We're amazing.

          Oh I'm sorry, it's the human races job never to boast or appear proud. What a load of shyt... we should be proud of our achievements not feel guilty for them.

          Okay I get it, an example of  'clearly insane'.

          Forgive me my nonsense, as I also forgive the nonsense of those that think they talk sense.\

          Gabba gabba hey

            Actually my thoughts seem rather more sane than yours.

            Mine are more Ayn Randesque while yours are... confusing and circular to say the least.

      Thank you retired English teacher - I am humbly ashamed. I did use the wrong word just as you said.

      And I'm getting this advice who wrote "l witled the courage of the beavest enemy." on his profile page.

      At least the wrong word was spelled correctly which is probably why I missed the error. Unlike yours which are underlined is a squiggly red line that points out that the is spelled wrong, (or is that spelt?)

      Enlighten me.


      talking about lightening : recorded this lightening storm about an hour ago:

      shoulda put Judas Priest 'Between The Hammer And The Anvil ' for the soundtrack. Use your imagination.

      Storm warning
      But there's no fear
      Lies forming
      The sacrament lays bare
      The sinner
      Will testify
      They'll suffer
      When sacrificed on high
      The burning sermons purge their evil words
      Between the Hammer and the Anvil

            It's 11pm, I'm feeding a baby, and I haven't figured out an easy way to make passive money from my phone.

              Phone Actress — otherwise known as Phone Sex Operators (or a PSO).
              Stay-at-Home Moms Turn Phone Sex Operators
              Jun 1, 2010 – A recent CNN report says the bad economy is forcing a lot of stay-at-home moms to help supplement the family's income

              I was thinking of doing it myself, but my voice sounds like gravel at the bottom of a well.

                Fortunately for me I live in a country where the national debt isn't enough to run a small country for a millenium. And where if I actually go to work, it will end up costing more than I earn in government fees due to the amount my husband earns. Therefore, I set out to earn just enough to class it as a hobby, not a taxable venture.

                And phone sex is not passive income; FSOG is passive income.

      Can I sue? I thought I would be driven totally insane, so far nothing can do that job! lol
      Perhaps you would like to try again?

        ptosisposted 9 years agoin reply to this

        I didn't say it was going to be instantaneous, like in the movie 'Live Free or Die Hard' where the computer blows up in your face. Perhaps in time, the growing frustration of not being able to sue me will slowly drive you insane and therefore negate the need to sue in the first place.

        Did you hear about that new Jewish restaurant in downtown Chinatown? It's called So Sue Mi.
