My head hurts.
What do you think about in your free time?
While many of us probably focus on the mundane things like what our plans are tonight, what we’re eating at our next meal, if our family needs anything, or how much longer till we’re done with work or school for the day, all of us occasionally drift into a deeper series of thoughts as we ponder our lives and worlds.
What are some of the deepest things you think about?
What keeps you awake at night?
Maybe you try not to trouble yourself with such profound and often depressing thoughts, or maybe they cross your mind at unexpected times about unexpected topics. From food and history, to brand names, human anatomy, and life itself, these are some of the topics that feel more messed up the longer you think about them…
For me it’s that a human was created inside my body. And this person has known me his ENTIRE life and there hasn’t been a day that has gone by where I haven’t seen him or fed him using my boobs. I use my boobs to feed someone. My boobs.
Edit: Yes, I realize that’s what they are there for. For me it has nothing to do with the fact that society sexualizes them. It’s just crazy to think that this is what keeps him alive and healthy and my body just knows how to make it this magic juice.
And now that keep dwelling on it I keep thinking how quite a number of us drink things and eat things that come from other animal boobs. Cow boobs, goat boobs, buffalo boobs, etc. (mrcocoapie)
that’s the point of them isn’t it? (oddish56)
The point of them is the nipple, without which they’d be pointless. (biznatch11)
Capitalism at Its Finest
They named the store “Banana Republic.” (embur)
There’s a sporting goods store in my town called ‘Sweatshop’.
Edit- it’s actually a UK national chain apparently (owlymctavish)
Say Thank You
How many things have to go right daily to keep me alive. I read an article a long while ago about this concept: that each person relies on hundreds, if not thousands, of strangers to do the responsible thing every day. Did the construction workers for that mall you’re visiting use proper materials and follow safety standards or did they take any shortcuts? What about your elevator manufacturers and installers? Plumbers? Electricians? Doctors? Are the pilots in the sky sober? Any itchy fingers on the nuke buttons? Is that guy next to you at the gas station going to try and light up while pumping? How close are we to the next Ebola outbreak? (Hot Zone was a great book, btw.) I guess that’s why we over-engineer / build in crazy safety factors. (poweredbyborsch)
