Thought du Jour, from the Retrospective Perceptual Position of a Former Teenager


What’s the difference between an adult and a crazy person?

It’s the degree to which they are aware that they have become the thing that they used to hate.

(less awareness = more craziness)

This is especially useful to remember in the heat of the moment, when awareness tends to slip and automation kicks in.
