Thinking about starting another business
I've got an idea, I know that there is a huge market for it and I know that I can make profit. But its the effort involved

Sunyata. Existence is empty. This sounds nihilistic and perhaps it is in a way. There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so. I've been quite the nihilist in the past. Everything is worthless! But that's just justifying your despair with the thought that you alone see the truth of existence. Bullshit. Existence is empty. It's not good or bad and thinking that it's good or bad is just as right and wrong. Every good nihilst should doubt their own nihilism. Our reason is often the hostage of our feelings - more than we'd like to think. We think this way because we feel this way. Of course it can go in the opposite direction but who knows where it really started. Thinking this way makes me feel this way which makes me think this way etc. Vulcans are a stupid idea which couldn't work in reality.

These confused ramblings are just me trying to make sense of myself. I hope I'm a nice person but there's also the other side of my brain telling me that it's all pointless and that I'm pointless too. Thanks brain! Existence is empty. When you're cut off from what most people accept as reality you realise what a fragile construction it all is. Sanity is statistical after all. Reality isn't real. Of course that wall is real and it won't disappear when you run into it, but much of our reality is really just in our heads. Nothing is good or bad but thinking makes it so. Everything is shit and you might as well slit your wrists. But that's not true either. God is dead and the universe doesn't give a shit. So what?

I heard shooting laser noises and stuff like that when I was in the field, and I dunno if there was a broken toy or something in the grass somewhere or if there were a bunch of aliens in the distance having a laser duel but I heard those noises!

Oh, how I like that English language has only "You". "You" for older people, "You" for strangers. "You" for anyone, You You You.

Why Russian should have 2 "Yous"? sometimes, when choosing it wrong while speaking with a person, you might upset them

About the young girl no older than 20 walking through town earlier with 2 older guys. They all looked like they were drugged up and the girl was shivering.
Its just sad the amount of addicts about and not much help around these days.

Lots of languages have that; French, Spanish, German, etc. the polite you and the informal you. It's complicated when to use one or the other.

I heard that Russian has a whole language worth of expletives, such that you can speak entirely in obscenities and still make conversation of sorts...

Let's look into this problem.
Two "Yous", both pronounced a bit different from each other. Let's split them to "You 1" and ""You 2".

"You 1" is more like informal, you speak with your family using "You 1", your friends and with those, whose age is approximate to yours.

"You 2", you use it when someone is quite older than you or someone in authority. For example, during your school years, by speaking to the teacher you can only use "You 2". I can only imagine, what would happen if you used "You 1" on teacher, as it never happened in my school years, I haven't heard anyone say that. I think, any teacher of any personality would then go something like: "why the hell you are saying "You 1" to me???" And if you continued then it would probably be reporting to Principal and all other bad stuff.

But all thise shit can be tricky. For example, one a person, who is 15 years older than me and I will be saying "You 2" to them, they might get upset, feeling old. And the second person, who is 15 years older than me and I will use "You 1" with them, they will get mad and say, that I don't respect them.
Depends on a person.

Easiest way to get out of this problem - ask how to call a person. However, even this can be tricky, but I won't be explaining anymore, it's toooooo long

No, I don't think I had upset someone, because I asked them if it's really ok call them "You 1".
Nevertheless, when I was 22 and was in a car with a school pupils age 16-17, they called me "You 2", I was very upset, thinking, how old did I looked like to them...

Oh yeah and how I could forget Lithuanian, the second language I speak! They use 2 Yous. Well, anyway, what I wanted to say is that I was really happy when I noticed how it's nice to use only 1 You in UK
