Do you lack drive/motivation in sex games?

I've never really thought much about hypnosis, but here's an interesting lecture from Prof. Thalia Wheatley on the subject:

Tell you what, I was really relaxed after listening to it.

Hells no, pimp.

I did meet someone back in a day for my first try at this. Either he was really bad at it, or I am too strong-willed (which sucks in this context), or it's a bit from both columns. I likened it to a drinking game. I mean, do I need a game in order to imbibe: no, but it could be more fun depending on the challenge. Same with power exchange. Next, to try it while playing Zoom Schwartz Profigliano.

I'm becoming obsessed with military strategy. I have always been fascinated with how The Art of War grew into a kind of metaphysics of action, forming principles to be applied in every area of life. But that appealed to me philosophically, rather than specifically as tactics of warfare. My interest in the latter has grown exponentially, perhaps as a result of right now intensely studying Machiavelli for school, as well as finding out how much von Clausewitz meant to Lenin. I'm drooling to get into the meat of this subject.

With the start of the new school year has come the nitty-gritty details of my chosen major of social work. This means a heavy dose of systems theory. I find it positively fascinating and fairly intuitive. It plays to my strengths as a former miller, I think.

global news. havent made any attempt to keep track since 2010 when I got burnt out on negative hype and sensationalism, ready to crall into a hole and tune out.
Guess Im getting tired of not knowing wtf people are talking about. Going to try and start watching tv again when I get a tv. Cant enjoy a bad soap without understanding the language. And a bad soap is preferrable to the void.

so, turn on the news

There's a box of trophies for sale in my local Salvation Army.

Homebrewing? Seems like a natural transition from baking, actually.

I'm trying. Boy am I trying. But the scope is so enormous and the subject matter so heart-sinking, that it's just overwhelming. It feels like to get at least a tiny understanding of the Syrian situation I would have to dedicate a full month of researching only that. And that is only one of a dozen major things going on. And then you have to stay updated, make sure you get your info from different sources and so on. It's confusing and tiring. I meet people who go "Yeah I read three to four newspapers everyday" and I'm like: Are you some kind of machine?

Though we don't have a choice do we?

i can't stop going to the home depot. it started with redesign something for fixing stuff, but then those depot dogs are some of the best hot dogs in chicago, make sure no sense but it's too delicious for me to care. but everytime they keep making more stuff, there's popcorn and toys in the front like an arcade now, and they added diy mr fix it classes for folks to build stuff. also i can't afford a car rental but whenever i have to drive someplace i rent one of those $19 for 90 min vans and just use it like a zip car haha. maybe I shouldn'tve spilled the beans on that last one haha, soon they'll start charging more or folks will pick up on it or...

Related somewhat to NDEs and OBEs: saw this in the middle of the night...

...on mainstream news!

Also, if you can tolerate some guy slapping his name onto it for no good reason and invoking Matrix-style imagery, this is a very good presentation about some of the things that were discussed earlier in this thread (ignore the misleading title, and as always don't read the comments):

I wanna start getting more carpentry knowledge. I've been around wood shops since college and picked up some rudimentary things by osmosis and just being around sculptors, crate makers, etc.
I really shit the bed by not taking more advantage of the woodworking end of the UW Madison art dept. while I was there. There were a lot of specialists there and great facilities. Stupid me.

Computers. Well I was heavily into computers as a kid, but they were like magic. I wanted to know how they worked, but it was too overwhelming.

Greater patience brought from maturity? Better English? The existence of Youtube-tutorials? Who knows. But things just fell into place. I'm now all up in opcodes and system calls and virtual memory, and it's delicious.

Well, not really that weird, but photoshop. After considering it "mastered", I've started a series of daily comics that are going to happen throughout the year, so I have been completely obssesed about how to propperly color/illustrate/whatever comics using photoshop, cheats to save some time, etc...

Also, my interest on sects is back! Yay! I'm reading a book about The People's Temple and now I'm on full-sect mode again. Destroyed families! Assholes! People turning against eachothers! Signs of risk as big as skycrapers that no one seems to notice! Weird beliefs! Soul destroying human drama! Yay!

Also, for some reason I'm reading and studying poetry. I plan to write some songs, but you don't have to be a poetry major to do that, but I'm getting obssesed with it because I used to be bullied when I was little and I fear rejection and punches if I don't do things well enough, I guess.

Also, when that asshole posted that video of a suicide victim on youtube, I, for some time, got obssesed with the whole youtuber scene. It's such a gut-wrenchingly awful thing, just the lowest instincts of late capitalism. And every fucking youtube star looks the same, sounds the same, and it's equally horrible. And children love them. FUCK.
