my favourite part of shakespeare plays is the person at the end that is like “see how these people fucked everything up. don’t do this. look at this fuckery. look at it. fuck this. fuck everything.”
O, reignite the flame
Sacred fire of ancient ways
And forge an iron will
Within your heart and soul
This age will rot and decay

Do not stray
From the overgrown path
Your forefathers once tread
We don’t need European fairy tales retold with dark-skinned characters
We need non-European fairy tales being told

THE WAY MARK STARES AS HE SLOWLY WALKS AWAY
George was obsessive-compulsive. He developed an irrational fear of germs in high school. He started washing his hands hundreds of times every day and was constantly taking showers.
Despite his trips to the local hospital, George couldn’t get his disorder under control, and he was eventually forced to leave school and quit his part-time job.
In 1983, depressed and paralyzed with fear, he told his mother he couldn’t go on anymore.
She responded with “If your life is so wretched, just go and shoot yourself.” And that’s exactly what George did. He grabbed a pistol, stuck it in his mouth, and pulled the trigger.
The bullet tore through his skull and slammed into his left front lobe—the part of his brain responsible for his OCD. Fortunately, George survived, and when he awoke from surgery, he found that his fear of microbes had disappeared along with a chunk of his brain.
He’d cured himself with a lobotomy by gunshot. He still had to take medications for his depression, but his overwhelming compulsions were gone.
And this is where I should honestly say this man was extremely lucky; please don’t use this post for suicide. It’s meant to be an educational neuroscience post.
DO NOT try this at home. 9.99999999 out of 10 times you will probably end up in a grave instead of cured.
OH MY GOD
