Hey pit

I just stumbledupon this blog article:

http://inoveryourhead.net/the-complete-guide-to-not-giving-a-****/

I wont ask you to read it (I only scanned it) and you shouldnt have to to engage in the discussion, but it prompted me to ask myself two questions:

a)Do I give a f**k? (for simplicity's sake "Do I care?") and b) should I?

I concluded that, yes I do care, and that I am sometimes a victim of some of the pitfalls of caring, like caring about what people who dont really matter think of me, or being fairly cowardly in some aspects of my life. But I also think that caring allows me to find motivation and purpose in life, whereas truly not giving a **** might strip that away.

So I ask you, Pit:
Do you give a ****?

And should you? Is giving a **** a prison? Or does it enable you to see beauty? Is not giving a **** freedom? Or is it self-indulgent bullshit?


TL;DR: last 4 lines.

Some things are worthy of having fucks given. For me it's just a very small list of things. Or maybe I just don't have a lot of fucks to give.

It's how I've been living my life lately. Works pretty well.

After having read that, it seems that I have never given a fuck to begin with.

Depends entirely upon who is asking for a fucking. Sometimes I give sometimes I don't.

I dont really think it does. It seems to me that people who selectively give a **** about stuff tend to only give a **** about stuff that directly effects them. Which doesnt really count. So in my opinion, you either give a ****, or you dont.

I'd be interested to hear an argument against that though...

If you have to post a thread on the internet about how you don't give a ****...you most certainly give a ****.

I believe you are confusing giving a set of four asterisks to being able to change an outcome of a situation. There are many things I give a set of four asterisks about yet have no power to change. That is not quite the same as saying set of four asterisks it.

Just read the whole thing. The guy seems like he's onto something that has some truth to it, but most of the comments section seems to be populated by total dicks who aren't thinking it through.

The general message seems to be: don't give a fuck what anyone else thinks and be happy. That's basically flawed because other people are people too. The blog mentions wearing some stupid shoes and bowtie and not caring what people think, and sure, anyone who gives a fuck about something trivial like that isn't worth your time.

However, imagine you're in a pub and you bump into a stranger and knock his drink over. If you adopt the philosophy "don't give a fuck, be happy" you might come out of that situation fine, but you're being a twat and the other guy knows it. Why not apologise and offer to buy him another drink? If he's not a dick about it you'll both come out better off.
Hahahahahahahahahah hahahaha har har har

I think it would be healthier for me to give less of a fuck. Not no fucks at all, but less.

Giving a couple of fucks provides motivation.

I wouldn't mind that. I'll be glad to no longer be the only one who shits upside down.

I believe I was born with a mixed blessing, and it's not being able to see negative things in a lot of people. This has made me a lot of friends but it's also put me in the crossfire of a lot of dumbass drama over the years, such as if 2 friends are dating and break up, sometimes both of them will come to me... and it's kind of frustrating. As a result I either give too many ****s, or no ****s.

I just read the opening of the article and saw just how long it is after that and just have to say how hilarious it is, just in writing all this he is giving so much of a **** it's pitiful.
