“Happiness can exist only in acceptance.” – George Orwell

First Comes Marriage

I probably write on this topic a bit too much, but if you can’t handle repetition, you probably can’t handle marriage.

I recognize that when I write on the topic of marital bliss it’s rarely, well, blissful but that’s only because I feel like more people should be honest and open about the reality of living with someone for eternity.

Think about how hard it is to deal with your own relatives over periods lasting longer than a week. Not easy. And they’re blood. Hell, it’s hard enough putting up with our selves. Can we really expect someone else to love us unconditionally? Beautiful thought but probably not very realistic.

So, how do we learn to live harmoniously with the person we both love and hate? The person that we promised to love through sickness and in health yet can’t stand the way they brush their teeth?

Humor, of course! And here are 31 hysterical husbands that paint a pretty humbling reality.

This Is Your Brain On Life

What did you do today?

Probably 1,000 little things and maybe five big ones – six if you’re a show-off or on Adderall.

Now, factor in how many thoughts went through your head while in the middle of these activities or during your bathroom break.

The human brain is a phenomenal network of neurons with zapping synapses. We’re biologically programmed to multitask, but it can come at a cost.

If you’re like me and are one of the reported 40 million people in this world suffering from anxiety or some other mental defect that keeps your mind from shutting the f up, it can be an upward battle. And it certainly doesn’t help that the typical answer is just throwing a new pharmaceutical drug at you and hoping it works.

Editors note: If one happens to work, no judgment on this end.

But the reality is, a lot of mental problems go unnoticed or unsupervised, leaving us to our own devices. It probably doesn’t help that we call them “mental problems” instead of… I dunno… just being a human in a society where Amazon is a tweaker’s paradise.

So, if you have one of those minds that just won’t leave you the hell alone, perhaps one of these “brain hacks” from actual sufferers may help.

Or at least til Pfizer comes out with a new cure.

Mad Beats

Among Will Farrell’s many talents, drumming is one of best of them. Or, at least, being funny at pretending.
