Makes me miss sparring. It was nice to hit someone without consequences.

Why talk to a therapist when you could talk to your imaginary friend, live in a dilapidated house, and start a terrorist-like cult?

I just saw the words “fight club” come up in a video by Texas Paul about a Russian spy in a white supremacist group suspected of shooting out the substations in Washington state.

Maybe you should check with the author... oh... ha... nevermind. I'm waiting for myself in the alley. Carry on.

I just saw the words “fight club” come up in a video by Texas Paul, about a Russian spy in a white supremacist group suspected of shooting out electric substations in Washington state.  It was on the Meidas Touch YouTube channel.

Well I can't speak for anyone else, but it has helped my mental wellness. I guess I am a statistical anomaly.

So you're telling me it isn't about blowing up credit card buildings? Shame 😢 cause I swear that's what hooked me at first. I was young, very young, and thirsty for the world to burn for no reason. The masculine urge to blow shit up is real but, learning to chill... is better.

Now, currently rereading it, I think it's about not going to war with yourself. And be whatever you body tells you to be. So, yes I agree, it is about mental wellness.

R.D. Laing would have very much agreed with you.

I've had some weird conversations about Fight Club. The conversation ending with me saying some version of: "Actually, I think the author meant the exact opposite. The ending is pretty specific about that."
