Doing nothing only feels good when there is stuff to do.

Reading into this from a slightly different direction I would suggest that if you have a predisposition for being Lazy which as has (never put those two words together by the way) been pointed out is passed down to you through your genes, surly this means that in a previous version of yourself you were a King or a high priest or a low priest (any kind of priest that did feck all anyway).

Now okay things may have slipped a little now in your current life but that doesn't mean that you shouldn't still be waited on hand and foot and brought grapes and virgins (come to think of it not virgins, Chocolate you don't have to talk to chocolate). Just because you now do a 9/5 job stacking something or carrying something from over there to over someplace else, doesn't mean that you shouldn't technically still be called 'your highness, Godness or goodness knows what. So don't stand for it, make a decision for the first time in your pathetic existence that tomorrow morning or this evening if you are on night shift you will go up to the person who dares to call him or herself your BOSS and say at the top of your voice "Hey BOSS NO! I won't go and clean that mess up over there I am a fecking King a God no less show some respect, you go and do it and lets address the balance here somewhat grrrr!

Now there are risks doing this, if you rely on your wage to pay your rent for instance, but you will be free, free man, free to be lazy under the stars every night. Not so great in the winter admittedly but come the winter you could always get another job. >:) :squirrel: I wasn't going to comment on this video it's camomile's fault :squirrel:

#6 The more time you use writing at Snotr the less time you get writing in 'The Great Book of Feckers'. Anyway, considering your comments your imagination and your creativity are not lazy at all.

This morning a voice in my head told me that I was sick, then a voice that belongs to a famous Norwegian doctor and nourishment expert knocked that voice down. That I admire her has 'nothing' to do with my motivation. Went to the gym and now my body aches like :x >:)

"Robert Sapolsky introduces a two-part series exploring the controversial scientific practice of inferring behavior to genetics. He covers classical techniques in behavior genetics and flaws, the significance of environmental factors, non genetic inheritance of traits, and multigenerational effects and relationship to epigenetic differences." (Part 1) (Part 2)

But why be lazy? Give yourself the gift of knowledge and start at the beginning:

Such words of wisdom up there today :) , all of them (exc. #5, no offense)..I don't think anyone here on snotr has that gene, myself included, otherwise we would not be on <3snotr<3 every day, toiling to make witty, wise and inspiring comments to our fellow snotrarians <3 >:) :squirrel: :*

I always thought you can't change your DNA, that it was set, but I discovered that it's only set by the previous behavior of 4 generations B4U. 8-) :(|) :x :x :S Learned you can actually change it, but only while you are in your body. Interesting subject to ponder... (i) :squirrel: By the way, well said #10! ;) Level:Witty...

#10 Saying "Well said" to yourself is not only narcissistic but also gets you a whole page to yourself in The Great Book of Feckers 1st Testicle, brother. Putting you in...Now!.. yep you're in. >:) JJ SSASP
