How did people control their urges before Internet and easily accessible porn do you think?

Wonderful post. I live on the 24th floor and I find it nearly impossible to fight the urge to jump most of the time. I’m not afraid of heights, but every time I look over I just want to jump. I want to feel the falling sensation but mostly I just feel this invisible pull that’s urging me to go over the railing. Its the worst after smoking weed. When I’m high, I fantasize about falling and picture it all happening. Because of this, I can’t do shrooms at home because I’m afraid I won’t be able to fight the urge in my altered state.
Sometimes I convince myself that I can fly, and all I have to do is jump.

I’ve written it down and will watch it the next time I get a chance. Thanks for reading and thank you for the movie suggestion!

Hey man, just a couple things I wanted to share. First, I felt like the title was sort of a joke, how backwards I feel society is sometimes and how the sane things we do make me feel insane.
Secondly, mostly I made this the title because titles are overwhelming for me. I always make a title After I finish writing, then I’m faced with the dilemma of summing up a slew of thoughts with a few words. For this particular piece, I couldn’t sum it up with any sort of title. Whenever I write, I feel as though it relieves my mind and spirit, and makes me stay sane. The folder in which I save all my writings is called, “insanity management”, so that’s what I decided to call it.
Everything else you say is spot on. I know the feels of reading things and having it lose my interest for the same reasons you stated.

What a remarkable experience man. If ever there was a question to whether any of us makes an impact on the lives of strangers, this re-emphasizes the answer. Im happy you got to have this moment.

Thats up to you to decide, man. I personally feel that the reader and the writer should interpret each story in their own way. There should be no limitations on a story.
But if you really must know, I left hints throughout the story to what I was feeling during the time I was writing this.

Thanks for reading man. It really depends, man. And its always different, creativity kind of comes and goes in waves. There has been weeks where I cant for the life of me get my thoughts out, hell sometimes thoughts dont even come. When my mind is stimulated by other things, such as work, I feel its easier to let the creativity flow. For instance, last year I was studying 5-6 hours everyday for the GMAT, and I wrote something I was proud of almost every single night. Conversely, when I have a lazy day where I dont read a book/article/blog or stimulate my self, I cant even write one sentence.
As for this piece, it had been atleast a week since I wrote(I write everyday, but most of it is nonsensical, or just building on something ive already written). I sat down with a few brief ideas in my head and thought I would write free stream of consciousness. I then found out that a lot of what I was writing had a lot in common with the rest. The story then just came to me as I kept building and letting my words flow.
So I guess to answer your question, I feel that to be a writer, you must constantly be stimulating all your senses. If you spend a day working on something you have passion for, excercising, then reading for an hour(anything really), you are more like to have the ideas flowing through your head.
Hope that helps, man.

What are you confused about good sir?

Haha, yea I do love odd, eye-catching titles. My english teacher in early highschool was obsessed with titles, told us it was one of the most important parts of a story. He would give us un-titled short stories, and tell us to read the stories and make up titles for it along the way. He taught me never to name anything before the writing is complete, because the title should match the writing, not vice versa. His advice always stuck with me. I either try to pick a title that summarizes the entire passage, or I pick something that makes people wonder, “huh, I wonder what this fool is talking about?” haha. Hope you make it up to that spot one day man, it looks amazing. Do remember to take a few pics when you do!

Thank you man, I didn’t even think more then a couple people read my posts! That realy means a lot man. And by the way, your facebook picture is one of the coolest pics I’ve ever seen! Where is it taken? Were you scared and how long was that hike up?

I apologize for the distractions. I don’t spend nearly enough time editing, I am working in it. Thank you for reading!

Thank you for those kind word. I hope you do find your own ways to understanding why things are the way they are. It took me more then a year to even write this without getting too emotionally crippled. But when I did, it was such a beautiful peace I felt. Keep smiling my friend.

Reviewing and questioning the theories of others does NOT impede scientific progress, rather helps it. You can not move forward without realizing what is around you. Hence we must evaluate all theories, no matter how radical they may be. As the OP did with this article, he reviewed something and summarized it for us to read, while also adding his own input along the way.
What does impede scientific progress is people like you, who are quick to judge and call people’s writings “stupid”. The OP took the time and effort to generate this post, and without even reading it all(I know for a fact that you did not in fact read it all the way through) you quickly judged and tried to belittle him.
Are you sure you werent born out of your mothers butt instead of her vagina? Because you still have a bit of asshole all over you.
