Future Past Paradox

I was thinking along these lines this morning, and had a couple of thoughts that you may find useful. 

  1. Right now you are as young as you’ll ever be. In the timeline of your life, you are literally as far away from your death as you will ever be. That doesn’t matter if you die tomorrow, right now is still the furthest you’ll ever be from it.
  2. Everyone is as young as they will ever be. It’s not just you.  Even your grandmother. Her distance [on her life timeline] is as far away from her death at this moment as it will ever be in the rest of her life.
  3. Also, right now we are all as old as we have ever been. More time is in our past than has ever been in our past before. And as we get older, we will continue to be our very oldest at every single moment.

Therefore, you have more experiences now than you’ve ever had, and you’re as young now as you’ll ever be. So make today count. You’re not getting any younger. 

How to age like white people

If you don’t like sarcasm, go read anything else I’ve written.

Let’s be honest with ourselves here. We’re really on to something. For those on the outside looking in, here’s what you need to do to catch up.

Starve Yourself. Just eat less. Or don’t eat at all. Who care’s if you were born to be 250 pounds? Humans have survived worse. Just as long as you can stand on the scale and feel good about yourself.

Drink Coffee. This is super helpful when you’re trying to starve yourself. It really kills the appetite and gives you that burst of energy that you used to have all the time when you were whole.

Get glasses. In the stress of starving yourself, you’re going to start to feel different. Your vision may start to blur. Glasses can help alleviate this annoyance and get you back to what’s important: getting as thin as humanly possible.

Workout when you don’t feel like it. Earn your gold stars. Outwork your friends. That’s what it’s all about. Looking good naked. Win the race to the grave.

Ignore your body. Don’t worry about how sore you are, or how much your stomach is growling after that big salad you just ate. Just keep plugging away. Maybe your headache will go away. You can always just go get coffee in a couple hours.

Get depressed. As you starve yourself with the aid of glasses and exercise, this should be easy. Just go with it. You’ll hate every minute of every day.

Take Meds. Since you can’t figure out what went wrong, and you can’t go five minutes without flipping someone off, go talk to someone. Get them to give you pills. That’s what you need: one more variable to sort out.

That should be enough to get you started. If you don’t start seeing results in 30 days, you’re doing something wrong.
