Living the Life of the Dude / Re: Eh...fuck it

I feel you dude.

Surrender but don't give yourself away
Stay golden pony boy.
Some other similar shit.

If it were me I'd go the other direction in terms of reading material.
Total escapist crap is your friend at times like these.
Too much deep thought is the enemy.
Action adventure flicks.
Go to a tittie bar.
Stuff like that.

Sorry about the late reply. Yeah, I'm still in the middle of my degree, but I get the feeling that I'm going to be on that path anyways. I'm on the fence about dropping out and just becoming a drifter. I feel like I'm wasting my time.

Oh, I'm actually reading a piece called "The Philosopher's Handbook", just sorta dipping my toe into new philosophical areas I never really dove into before. My interests tend to lie within Political philosophy and in existentialism. Would you recommend that author?
Hey dudes... been a while.

I just read a book that I found pretty intellectually stimulating and it had some decent conclusions in there about tying the whole global ethos together.  It draws from pretty much every ancient religion and also tempers that with modern scientific research and discovery, philosophy both ancient and modern, and psychology as well.  It also outlines what's all just a game man but the evolutionary reasons behind those games that fundamentalists and fascists love to play, but in a way that frankly helped me kinda let go of a lot of animosity about that stuff to better help me say "fuck it" instead of just "fuck you".

It's called "The Happiness Hypothesis: Finding Modern Truth in Ancient Wisdom" by Johnathan Haidt if anyone's interested.  If anyone has read it I'd be curious to know what impressions you had.  I myself thought it was pretty damn well balanced and did a god job of pointing out the strengths and weaknesses of most worldviews and how with adjustments pretty much all of them could lead to a good level of happiness for the right individuals... happiness meaning not just some empty pursuit but a resilient state of contentment not unlike the abiding principle we all roll with.  Looking outside dudeism again for inspiration and to keep a limber mind has helped me personally find a better balance with the dude's specific form of abiding (general laziness, white russians, jays, credence tapes, and bumbling detective work) with something more fitting to my personality as a creative, collector of information, and a dreamer and admittedly a little bit of a perfectionist at both.

Anyone else read it have any thoughts man?

Yep. We consume copious quantities of recently developed research chemicals to deal with stresses caused by the incongruity between the modern world and how we've evolved. Because, you know, our leaders deemed it prudent to ban natural substances which have been used for hundreds, sometimes thousands, of years with little to no significant, long-term side effects. If I didn't know better, I'd say we hate ourselves.

It looks to me like common thread is the use of anti depressant medication.
Apparently he had taken Ambien and told his wife on the phone that he may have taken too many.
These medications list suicide as a side effect.
I mean put your head around that.
The medications prescribed to treat depression may cause suicidal thoughts.
Now I'm no physician but doesn't this border on the absurd?

Welcome to the ranks of those with a college degree who are unemployed. It sucks but all you can do is to abide and just take it easy. But like you said it does give us more time for hobbies like reading a good book, watching a Coen brothers movie or maybe playing some video games. Just don't treat objects like women, man.  8)

By the way: that book you are reading wouldn't be from Umberto Eco now would it?

I had an insane semester at school and I'm sure I didn't pass one of my classes (which is why I've been absent these last couple of months), and now I'm currently unemployed, but I feel fine.

Taking it a day at a time. Just abiding, I've been fortunate enough to get some odd jobs working for my cousin, and I'm making enough to survive. It's a bit unfortunate, I was promised a job by my boss at my company, but he's away in Germany right now and is incommunicado because he's dealing with some family issue. Middle management at the company, because of bullshit office politics, has essentially told me to fuck off, and that they have no job for me.

Trying to abide, enjoying some lemonade and book on the philosophy of aesthetics, taking advantage of not having shit to do by doing some things I never have time for. Feels great.

I don't know what to make of the fact that so many of the people I admire in this world have chosen to leave it voluntarily.

What a voice to have silenced.

Damn, I allowed my inner Walter to come out due to someone on the forum I perceived as being undude. Only to immediately afterwards stumble on some words from a wiser fella than myself, the late cckeiser, and realize that I was acting in the very way I was arguing against. Thank you cckeiser for put
