  • Existence is ruthless.
    If living wasn’t difficult enough, we are forced to live with death too:
    Thoughts of death, fear of death, sadness of death. Our death. Death of our loved ones.
    Hearing about the British king’s cancer today hit me with a special-death anxiety. See, I have normal death anxiety whenever I think or hear of death. Special death anxiety is simply normal death anxiety with the additional ‘if even this guy couldn’t make it, what chances do I/my loved ones have?’ anxiety.
  • For some, distraction is the best method of dealing with death anxiety: Forget about death. Think and feel something else. If death comes, it comes. Don’t waste your life in fear.
    For some, 24/7 contemplation of death is the way to go:
    Always think about death. It can come anytime and anywhere. Live your life as if it is your last day. Overcome the fear of death and live with this idea.
    In me, it works something like this:
    I forget about death while I distract myself with the most mundane stuff like my professional ambition, unsaved five dollars, hatred toward celebrities, WWE, smokes, drinks. Until…I hear of death and start to get anxious and forget all the mundane. And then I think and worry about death until I find something to distract myself again.
  • But I have found a way to deal with death. I have decided to believe and live for the idea of Longevity and Life extension. It’s about postponing death through the use of advanced technology. (As if I can afford all that!) (As if I am an American billionaire…or King Charles for that matter!)
  • You know what watching tons of videos about how WWE works and how professional wrestling is scripted (faked) has taught me?
    It’s that all entertainment businesses and their awards like the Grammys are scripted and faked too.
    By fake I mean all superstars and winners in music and TV and movies are decided based on their ability to draw people and not on their talent. Yes, they have talent. But it’s not about who is the most talented or the best in an art form. It’s about who is the best for the industry at any given time. A five-time Grammy winner or a seven Academy award winner does not necessarily have to be the best…he or…
