Side-Effects and Symptoms

To me, death is not a fearful thing. It's living that's cursed.
 - Jim Jones

Life is hard, especially when you're a self-aware, semi-intelligent being capable of meta-cognition. It's not easy, having a choice whether or not to use the brain most of us have been blessed with. On the other hand, rolling over and going back to sleep requires little effort.

Strangely enough, sleeping too much leads to symptoms of sleepiness. It's little wonder that closing your eyes and ears and mind to the truth leads one to suffer symptoms of suspicion and paranoia about the world Outside.

And by Outside, I naturally mean outside your head.

Life is hard. There's no if or buts about it. When you've got the ability to make the wrong choices, making the right ones is an any-time life crisis waiting to happen. It's stressful. The weight of your world literally rests on your shoulders.

So why not set the world aside for a bit. Rest your poor little heads. Take a sip of a popular, flavored, powdered drink.
