This month made me want to post this early for some reason.
Americans literally detest thinking.
They’d rather be electrocuted, actually.
Wilson et al. (2014) investigate whether it is easier for people to steer their thoughts in pleasant directions when the external world is not competing for their attention or whether it is more difficult to think in enjoyable ways even in the absence of competing external demands.The results of 11 studies suggest that participants typically do not enjoy spending 6 to 15 minutes in a room by themselves with nothing to do but think, that they enjoy doing mundane external activities much more, and that many prefer to administer electric shocks to themselves instead of being left alone with their thoughts.
Ah! The fruits of multi-generational dysgenic breeding.
Law of attraction might be making America dumber.
Howzat Republic workin’ out for ya.
