What is free will? Some would argue that it's following your own voice, doing what you want. But that's a shallow interpretation, because you have no control over what you want. In order to be truly free, you have to do what you want to want. But figuring out what you want to want presents its own problems. In fact, it's pretty much impossible to know! So here's the compromise: in order to be truly free, you have to do what you don't want to do. That's where I'm at. Today, I cut up the inside of my mouth with a razor and went down on a transgendered woman with poor hygiene and full blown AIDS. Laugh all you want, from your psychic cages! Yours is the lewd, bitter cackle of the death row inmate, echoing after me as I stride purposefully down the corridor, free, free, FREE!

10/19/2007 Mr. Pony (4): Maybe I've also known this to be true all along.
11/12/2007 Dylan Danko: Philosophical
11/12/2007 Dylan Danko: While i enjoy the last paragraph, I think the short would have been better without it.
11/12/2007 qualcomm: huh. i think the second to last paragraph is the lacking one, myself.
11/13/2007 scoop: Yes, the AIDS graf stinks of sweaty transgression.
11/13/2007 qualcomm: i wasn't trying to transgress--i was just trying to think of something that i really wouldn't want to do, and that was the first thing that popped into my head.
12/1/2007 Ewan Snow: Extra star for ripping off my free will point. Minus a point for the unimaginative idea for what you supposedly "don't" want to do. But I don't know what the base number of stars is, so I can't vote...
