Hi again ATS!
Is there logic in the fact that I am about to rant about the fact that I don't feel like ranting at all
? You're damned skippy there is! In
fact I intend to state a formidable case, momentarily, the apathy and feeling bland are possibly the most worthy of things to rant about.
You see folks, tonight I feel meh
and this bothers me deeply. Well, not really deeply because the freaking meh is disengaging my
righteous anger before it has any chance at all of taking hold. But if I were
currently capable of any strong emotion... you can bet I'd be
As a person who believes in an amalgam of both evolution and intelligent design, I am left baffled at the though that either process could result in
us, as beings, having the power to simply feel this blah. Heck, I'm having trouble just trying to find appropriate terms to describe the feeling!
THAT is how much we ignore the problem!
I get the darned French have about eighty words for it. Those French and their words that nobody else has. One day I'll work out of this mehness and
rant about that too. I mean I don't have language envy - but why French? Why a language that is so darned difficult to phonetically spell in? Sure,
we all know deja vu... but what about that term for "a certain something" that is phonetically spelled "jen-no-say-kwa"? HUH?
Oh how irked I'd be over that if I were able. But even now... The meh is overpowering.
Could meh be the dark matter or dark energy that they say makes us most of the universe? Is THAT why is tends to be so pervasive and profound? It
fits, doesn't it? Man can detect 10% of the matter in the Universe. The rest is meh
. It works for me. If I didn't feel so blah I might
even write an email to Stephen Hawking about the possibility of a meh based Universe. Who knows... I could be on to something.
Is there a known cure for meh? If there is, I certainly can't find it tonight. I could lick a light socket and, once I woke up, I'd just go "Should
have seen that result coming" - and I'd be right back here adding a "Yup, extreme electrical shock didn't work. Now my tongue is both meh AND
Of all the evils, trials, and tribulations that life has to offer, I conclude that meh is the most graphically and brutally vicious of them all. At
least most other emotions have some sort of passion attached to them - they feel alive and vital - even the bad ones. But Mr Meh... well he just makes
you feel like you're sitting at the DMV with a stub that says "719", staring at an electronic board that says "Now Serving Number 8"....
While I am at it, they say that money is the root of all evil - but I offer that meh is actually the culprit. I mean greed can lead you into doing
some shady things. But they aren't usually stupid things. Whereas meh has me thinking "I could go outside and try to find a rabid possum to
corner... that'd be fun at least.". No, good denizens of ATS. Money is not our problem at all. In fact, as I think about it, you know how money was
created in the first place? Some dude was feeling meh way back in the day and inventing money was the end result. Two World Wars... My theory? Germans
have a genetic predisposition towards feeling meh. Nuclear weapons. It's common knowledge that Oppenheimer was prone to meh as well.
Mr Meh, I am onto you. And if I wasn't so meh right now... I'd do something about it.
