1. Yeah, me too.
2. Nah, if you're not responsible for someone else's life choices if you didn't help them make the choice.
Is this my final form?

Besides, beer isn't all that harmful to you in reasonable doses, so that isn't very dangerous.

Had a quite weird experience today that should fit this topic.

I just wanted to quickly google something, so I didn't even bother to sit down in front of my laptop but "crouch sat" on the floor. However, it took much longer than intended and the text I read really absorbed me so that I didn't notice how long I stayed in this position.
That's why I started to faint when I wanted to get up (slight sickness added to this), but I stayed kinda half-conscious.
Everything went black and I suddenly didn't feel like a person anymore. I felt like being a part of the text instead and my brain wildly rambled on its topics and how I was affected by them. There were some white sparkles and it was like if I looked directly into my brain.
I remember being amazed how disembodied I felt until I noticed that my head was tilted back. I (probably) stayed like this for a while, rapidly breathing and trying to allocate this stuff in my head, and then tilted myself forwards in order not to fall backwards. It took me some time to come back to reality. My upper body lay on my desk/ laptop and what had felt like an eternity actually just took 1 or 2 minutes.

It's not that those thoughts themselves were somehow relevant (at least not as far as I remember), but the whole thing was so otherwordly and deeply relaxing. If this is what meditating is like, I'll definitely get involved in it.
Because trying to "half-faint" everyday is a rather risky option, I guess.

Every other day perhaps. I've gotten similar, you know where you stand up suddenly and you feel like falling right back down again.

I was going to post this in awesome pictures thread but its not very awesome, and I'm a very amateur photographer. But anyway's I was walking home today and passing a graveyard, on my side of the street there was a headstone engraver, kind of curious I peaked around the back side and found this.

Piles of unengraved headstones, all destined to eventually have a title engraved and sit ontop a dead guy. i dont know why but something about it seems just unreal.

Its the idea, the concept that the name of the receiver is limitless.
In Fact, one of those very headstones might belong to me some day.

And when I say limitless....

I mean Limitless.
