And Another Thing

AND ANOTHER THING by the Maw of the Void Humans are all masochists. This can be proven: We seek out bad signal (fiction), poison (alcohol, some drugs), and do physical, permanent damage to ourselves (piercings, scarification, tattoos) for fun. We actively take joy in each other’s suffering, and are wired to believe that whatever discomfort we are experiencing this moment is the worst pain that has ever happened. When you look at monkeys, the only real conclusion is that Darwin was wrong and the most successful species is the one who makes time to beat their nuts with a wrench. This is why birds will be our successors.
