Being in a bad mood isn’t an excuse to be an asshole. Being stressed out isn’t an excuse to be an asshole. If you’re only an asshole when you’re upset, you’re still an asshole. Learn to handle your shit like a grown up.
I’ve seen this going around on Facebook as well and I swear I am going to break my computer if people don’t start THINKING for ONE FUCKING SECOND about how ODD it is that Oscar Wilde would be talking about God damn FANCY CARS when he DIED IN 1900.
Also, Wilde was a genius at bon mots and this one FUCKING SUCKS.
Severe arachnophobia being impossible to beat is bullshit too. I cried and slept on an elevated bed for weeks because of spiders, now I have two tarantulas who I handle regularly. You can throw shoes at them, or you can get up and ask yourself “Can I unlearn my phobia of spiders and not kill them any more?” It’s completely possible.
Sure I’d still freak out finding spiders in my bed, but I’m not going to throw books at them until they die.
I hear this type of thing all the time, and we now know that arachnophobia can be literally cured in a couple hours with almost 100% success.
The therapy doesn’t do anything you can’t try at home, either.
“Before treatment, some of the participants wouldn’t walk on grass for fear of spiders or would stay out of their home or dorm room for days if they thought a spider was present,” said lead study author Katherina Hauner, postdoctoral fellow in neurology at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine.
During the exposure therapy, participants were taught about spiders, and gradually learnt to approach the creature. The researchers found that the participants who underwent just one session of therapy (three hours) experienced changes in the brain that resulted in them being able to hold a tarantula in their bare hands.
Goku, we have to cook.
