But these proclivities share the same etiology: a certain part of your brain has an epiphany: “YOLO,” which — contrary to (((MTV’s propaganda))) — does not translate to “Let’s have hedonistic fun,” but to “Life is pointless, so let’s make it meaningful by taking risks – or give up and die already.” So, even though I’m not suicidal myself, I kinda understand what you’re feeling.
