“Why, when I walk down the street, am I not being constantly bombarded by people remembering Looney Tunes?” –Patrick, Mind Reader
I find that much of my day is spent thinking about shit that doesn’t matter. Idle worries, unimportant concerns, egocentric fantasizing that stays in my mind because it would be interesting to no one but me.
I feel like my time would be better spent thinking about enjoyable things, like remembering Loony Tunes.
If a mind reader walked past you today, what would they hear? Would it be interesting, or would it be the same petty drivel they’ve heard a thousand times on that very street?
It matters more than you think. Your thoughts reveal who you really are, and the only one reading your mind is you.
P.S. The webcomic I linked, Strong Female Protagonist, is very good. I just found it today, and I’ve been thinking about it ever since.
