Free your mind

I was never really a fan of self-improvement, I always figured that I knew it all already, how can you improve on perfection? 

Once I'd grown up a bit and been caught with the occasional metaphorical and emotional "mainour" (make of that what you will), I discovered a little navel-gazing can be a good thing.  It turns out that I need a lot of improving. Like, a lot

So where do you start on the path to enlightenment?  Well, the first thing you need to do is take stock of where you are before you can decide where to go or how to get there.

To this end, the Marc and Angel Hack Life website has produced an excellent set of 50 questions that supposedly will free your mind, presumably so you can jump from one tall building to another, Matrix style.  That would be cool.

Most of the questions there are pretty good at getting you to think about who you are right now and who you'd like to be.  Some however make me want to back away from the website slowly and carefully.

For instance, "Have you ever seen insanity where you later saw creativity?".  What?  Where?  On this website?  Sure!  Okaaaayyyyyy...

I also enjoyed the question "What’s something you know you do differently than most people?"  Honestly, I'd rather not say to a strange website I've only just met.

"Why are you, you?"  Because... well.... ermm.... I'd have to say "Because Internet" to be honest. It has twisted me into who I am with it's wily charms.  And Fark.  Damn you, Fark.

So in conclusion, I'm broken.  Thanks, Marc (with a 'c') and Angel.  Now the healing can begin.


In 1542, Catherine Howard, the fifth wife of Henry VIII of England, was executed for adultery.  Perhaps if Jerry Springer had been born earlier than 1944, he could have 'elped old 'Enery the Eighth and his missus with their problems, and Cathy could have kept her head.  Or he could have got Steve Wilkos to swing the axe.
