IT'S TOO REAL, MAN.

"Say, for example, that your passion is painting. Well, what are you waiting for? Get out there and buy a canvas and some painting supplies! Go sign up for art classes! And when you get so overwhelmed with your job and your personal life that you barely have enough time to see your girlfriend or boyfriend or husband or wife, let alone do anything else, go ahead and skip classes for a few weeks. Then let those paint brushes sit in your room untouched for six months because a major work project came up and you had a bunch of weddings to go to and your kid got sick and money is tighter than you thought it would be and you have to work overtime. And then finally pick those brushes back up again only to realize you’re so rusty that you begin to question whether this was all a giant waste of time, whether you even want to paint anymore, and whether this was just some sort of immature little fantasy you had as a kid and that maybe it’s finally time to grow the fuck up, let painting go, and join the real world because, let’s face it, not everyone gets to live out their dreams."

"But as wonderful as the initial results are, the concern is that while such programmes initially work when a change acts as a reminder, once people become used to the new order they will stop paying attention to them and continue as before."

In the Behavioural Science language, there is a concern that the proliferation of nudge-based policies hinder its salient nature and cause diminishing returns to its effectiveness. That being said, a number of nudge-based policies have an impressive track record and more research should be done on its long-term effects.

It's sad how accurate a representation this is. But also very funny.

"I almost gave in and listened to that guy defend Islam with words I didn't want to hear," Gentries said. "But then I remembered how much easier it is to live in a world of black-and-white in which I can assign the label of 'other' to someone and use him as a vessel for all my fears and insecurities."
