Get Out!
« on: May 02, 2009, 06:54:41 pm »
Don't you know what you're getting in to?

You're coming dangerously close to becoming one of the fringe loonies. You laugh at their weird jokes, ponder their quirky sayings, and maybe you've even read some of their bizarre essays and publications. Maybe you've even thought, once or twice, that there just might be something worthwhile amidst all their crackpot buffoonery.

For crying out loud, get out while you still can.

They might have some novelty value, but ultimately they're nothing but a modern mental circus act. A freak show of ideas. A little playing around with one's imagination is all well and good, but that's all it is: playing around. At the end of the day, we all need to come back down to the kind of thinking that keeps our society running smoothly. How are you supposed to get any real work done if you're off in La-La Land, questioning your motives and the motives of others?

We do what we do in our everyday lives because that's what we need. It's what you need, and it's what society needs. The fringe loonies like to make up fairy tales and science fiction stories about what's "really" going on inside our heads. There's nothing substantial about what they say. You know as well as we do that you're a completely rational person, and there's always a good reason for what you do, even if you can't remember exactly what it is at any given moment.

So quit listening to their ridiculous ranting sermons, quit reading their obnoxious psychobabble, and go back to reputable sources of ideas. Television, mainstream news; stuff like that keeps society happily humming along like it is.

I mean, you don't want things to start changing, do you?

RAH!

I did one like this, a few years back.

I like your ending way better, though.

Thanks guys. The first half of this was sitting on my desktop for like a month, and last night I finally got the inspiration to finish it.

Thanks for sharing this,

the internet is the perfect ghetto, anyone can step in and out anytime they wish peruse the freak show then go back to their nightly news (pronounced NOOSE).

But the freakshow is gaining ground, the internet is more infectious than most people realize and it infects the freaks and those who consider themselve's normal.

Bravo Cainad!  I like the above phrasing especially, "a modern mental circus act. A freak show of ideas."  Very nicely put!  Answering the question with a question at the end there is sympatico!  :mittens:

Heck, we should get more people to record their rants (or get others to record for them). That would fill up a good chunk of time.
