In mental derangement

As we find ourselves comparing our thoughts to colours of dissolved instant coffee, inner concerns about our own importance may rise. You see, you might spend 1,800 hours a year working at some project and still achieve no real progress in your life. Is it worth those 780 cups of coffee? Or do I have to ask the other way around?
If I sleep another 1,800 hours, when does the rest of approximately 5,100 hours go up in smoke? I mentioned coffee. The drug of hard workers, students and Alcoholics Anonymous. Various studies suggest an healthy intake of two to five cups a day. Not the cups labelled ‘pint’! These are for the other stuff. Well, I think one tremble replaces the other. Hey, everybody knows that lots of people get drunk every night. But that’s me talking jealous after 355 days without any ethanol consumption. There is something I got to do in roughly a week. It has to do with C and OH and evil chemistry.

Paracelsus said something like “die Dosis macht das Gift” which may be understood as a kind of definition. It’s poison when you can’t handle the dose. But as humans tend to see everything as good or evil, let’s say poison starts where Good switches concentrate and thinning agent. Poison is an extreme. Too much of pretty everything is evil. So God, seen as a hundred percent excellence, would be evil. How’s that saying about evil and genius again?
If you’re walking on a thin line, pass on the spirituous liquids!

    Thank you for your comment kiki. I’m glad you found some sense in my snippets.

    I will definately write about religions, belief and other snacks for your mind.
