Question of the Day #16: Your Best Thinking

Do you ever find that there are certain abstract activities that help you think more clearly? For example, I usually do my best thinking when I've got a pad of paper in front of me or when I'm scupting something out of my kneeded rubber eraser. What helps you think?

moving. I think best when I'm walking or working in the yard. there's something about having my hands in the soil that gets my brain revved up. walking or hiking does wonders too-probably a combination of endorphins and more oxygen in my blood.

Drawing, painting and sculpting.

Probably all abstract activities give you the possibility to think clearly because your attention isn't taken away and you can focus completely; the thing you're doing is something you don't have to think about: walking around, staring into empty space, showering, lying down.

Usually when I'm driving. Which sucks because I can't write anything down immediately.

1. Lying down waiting for sleep.
2. When I'm taking a walk.
3. More rarely, in the shower.

In all cases, I either talk to myself or the mind wanders, reflects on the day's topics, and so connections are made, new ideas arise, etc.

Playing guitar or drums. There's a focus, but it's a rhythmic thing which frees up the thought processes.

A tall cool glass of Ovaltine usually relaxes me for clear thinking as well.

Marijuana, and driving my car.

I think y'all do your best thinking when you're not typing. The world would be much better off if you atheists smoked a lot of pot and went driving, like our productive friend Aaron. You might all shut the fuck up for a change and let us enjoy our salvation in peace.

All those in favour of kicking Maureen out, say aye.

Sounds like Maureen could use some marijuana herself. Might loosen her up and calm her down a bit AND MAKE HER THINK for once.

I love nothing more than sitting back with a fat doobie and reading and thinking to myself.

Over the past year I've noticed I've been distracted more often in deep thought even while doing things that aren't mundane. I've loved every minute of it.

As you get older, Marijuana can kind of make you.... Damn! I forgot what I was going to say! Like anything else, if it don't feel good, don't do it.

Maureen: I recommend high-risk activities, like free climbing and wreck diving. That way you can kill yourself and get out of this world that doesn't suit you without it being a suicide. Another thing, you've obviously had enough vinegar, why don't you switch to piss for a change?

*LOL*: Now that sounds like a happy woman, doesn't it. Not bitter and angry at all.

Maureen is another dopeless hope fiend!

God fucking damn it, Maureen! Maybe you aught to pull your head out of your ass and give yourself a little oxygen. Then you might be able to do some good thinking. Maybe enough to leave that cult religion of yours.
