    Can't find a suitable thread to post this

    so I'm making one. Be advised there is adult language in the following link. It's about the art of not giving a F**k.

    http://markmanson.net/not-giving-a-****

    The text is long, but well worth the read. What do you think? Are you caring too much about things you should not?

    Yeah - I've read that. Less than eloquently worded, but also true in a lot of ways. I'm certainly bad for it - caring too much about things that shouldn't, really, be cared about. I think a lot of people are. I also suspect that this is somewhat related to the fact that, as a society, we seem to have fewer serious concerns to occupy our minds, so we let the trivial bits take on disproportionate weight.

    Interesting! Thanks for sharing. .you only have to look around the world to realise that 'giving a ****' is relative and very often a waste of time.

    He's right. A bag of burritos does sound awesome!

    His overall premise sort of reminds me of the Honey Badger...

    Even a broken watch shows correct time once or twice a day. I ought to know, I have a few!

    I got a fair way into the article but, feeling fairly sure that I had got the gist, I found that I didn't etc etc

    I got about a third of the way through before the guy's massive ego really started to grate. You know what's giving a ****? Writing a blog about how you don't.
