So now you're kind of rooting for it, right? But remember, the system wants to pacify you, too. The system needs impoverished customer service workers, and it needs those impoverished customer service workers to be OK with that situation. And the way you pacify a person is by reducing their life goals to a list that's one item long: feeding their addiction. An addict can become OK with anything -- their status in life, their dead-end job, the system overall -- as long as they're getting their fix.

After all, there's a reason society is coming around on weed legalization -- it may not have the chemical addiction of meth, but it sure as hell makes you OK with sitting motionless on your sofa. That's why I find it hilarious that weed is such a symbol of hippies and the counterculture. If you're working all day to make money to buy weed, then spending your free time stoned on the sofa, you're the perfect drone. Now tell me you don't know at least one person who's fine with living paycheck to paycheck, as long as they can dominate at League of Legends every night.

That feels like a tragedy to me. Remember, those pleasure centers in the brain we're letting someone else hijack were put there for a reason. We evolved to feel a high from a successful hunt, or winning a battle, or securing food, or making a friend, or finding a lover. Improving your life, in other words. Once they can decode how to induce those feelings of bliss with various combinations of chemicals or stimulus, the game is over. The chemicals will always be more attainable than the actual pleasures they're replacing.


Americans are the most fattest people in the world. It's not good or healthy. Sitting around all day is dangerous to the system. Fast food and porn are the greatest addictions that keep people complacent and fat. Don't be fat like a garden gnome or if your name is Ghost.
Life is beautiful.

Pinoys/pinays have a fat explosion, especially around 30 or so. I saw it myself. It's crazy. Some of those 30-40 year pinays can look like frumpy American housewives (albeit more pleasant) unfortunately.


Ghost's unhealthy obsession with anorexic Chinese boys is disturbing. White American women don't age well past 30 it goes downhill.

Ghost, you're fat. You're not Chinese. You're a chubby American on a keyboard with a Big Mac in your mouth typing about the beloved Chinese motherland when its aggressive expansionist policies based on some garbage BS historical Chinese map threatens its neighbors. China is greedy and needs to learn how to share and be kind to its fellow Asians. Japan paid the price for its war crimes in WWII and compensated the Chinese accordingly. The Japanese have moved on. Why can't Ghost? Oh yeah, because he can't run for a lick on a treadmill. #GhostBusters

Why waste your time on such petty and unintelligent insults? And don't be some dumbass E Irrizarry clone either. It's ghetto and stupid. Go come up with something clever and maybe I'll be impressed.

Hey, don't worry, I'm sure the Flips can overcome the Chinese by economic warfare. Let's see...let's import a few million Flips into China, and within a month all the money the responsible Chinese people have saved will disappear.


China can start and win the war against the Filipinos. China can bully the Phils. because it has a stronger military. You're wrong about importing Filipino slaves. The Hong Kongers want the Filipinos to get out. Philippines is soo fuckked in a war with a China.

China 1- Philippines - 0 in terms of war. But in terms of getting laid, Philippines - 3000000+ bonus points and China - 1 anorexic Chinese boy for Ghost.
