Episode #48 - Use Your Delusion
This week Amitai and Katie-Ellen huddle up for a sweet episode brought to you by the laidback vibe of Vancouver Island. This week, we talk delusion.
An idiosyncratic belief or impression that is firmly maintained despite being contradicted by what is generally accepted as reality or rational argument, typically a symptom of mental disorder.
Okay. But in terms of "symptom of mental disorder"...it can be pretty sweet, no?
Katie-Ellen makes the argument FOR delusion. Now, if your delusion is that you can stop a moving train and you wanna act on it, that's not really in anyone's best interest. But if you have a benign delusion that helps you get through the day, what else are we really doing here?
Do you have a precious delusion that helps you out?
Katie shared on the pod that if there was a blog this week we would try to feature a video of someone who tried to eat a live octopus getting absolutely rocked by said octopus. Truthfully, Katie can't stomach the search/isn't prepared to wade into "eating live octopus videos," so we can all use our imaginations to picture that sweet and necessary vengeance. In place of that promised video, here is a beautiful picture of an octopus to admire.
This week Amitai is horny for "gross" food. Get into it.
Katie-Ellen is horny for the nostalgic beauty of a root beer popsicle.
