    Mental Health Checks

    I, for one, agree with you Kyrshamarks. But first, I believe we should put our focus on inhibiting adolescents from having hormonal secretions, like my parents did with me! [ATTACH=CONFIG]28122[/ATTACH]

    How to choose a car?

    How to choose a car?

    Agreed. Heard lots of good stuff about the Camry. Fact is.. Rooty Payne Psych Tech bought a used Camry some years ago for $2500 which had well over 100,000 miles on it. He drives it to work every shift and it runs like a top.

    Thinking about death/dying?

    And I'm glad you brought this old thread back to life, so to speak, Hatoun_alth! As I said in my old post, low serotonin levels coupled with a stimulating subject can be a cause for rumination and insomnia. How do we get out of that cycle? We are free to choose the thoughts on which we dwell. I equate thoughts like books on a shelf- I'm free to choose what book I wish to read. But if we are focused on a thought, anything that breaks the cycle of rumination will do the trick- From praying, meditation, or just thinking happy thoughts about pleasant experiences. Here's a technique which works unfailingly for me: First, I close my eyes and focus on my breathing, inhaling to a count of a count of 8 to 12 and exhaling to the same. Once the rhythm of my breathing is established, I focus on the flashes of light I see when I close my eyes. Those flashes of light are called phosphenes caused by random firings of the optic nerve. Like seeing animals in cloud shapes, I attempt to "see" things in the phosphenes. Phosphenes are so cool- they're like a moving swirling picture collage. If I focus on my breathing and phosphenes, I invariably fall to sleep. However, thinking about death doesn't freak me out. What freaks me out is the dread of the pain of living! The best to you, Hatoun_alth!

    I also enjoy illustrating conceived scenarios. Like, what if Captain Hook flipped off Jack Sparrow? [ATTACH=CONFIG]27410[/ATTACH]

    Thanks, Ted! You being a Music Man might appreciate this one- I hear a line from a song in my head, something like an ear worm, and I am driven to illustrate the line in an alternative perspective rather than its intended meaning. This one's from James Taylor's "How Sweet It Is": [ATTACH=CONFIG]27409[/ATTACH]

    The bastardization of the concept of "an otherwise unpleasant situation can be pleasant when a pleasant aspect is deliberately introduced" coupled with an iconic image: Or something like that. [ATTACH=CONFIG]27396[/ATTACH]

    The legendary explorers, Lewis & Clark are quite big in this area, making their first camp just south of where I live, and "The Gateway to the West" being just across the river. There are signs for historical markers and all sorts of businesses use the dynamic duo's name. Just about every sign or logo pertaining to Lewis & Clark use a silhouette image with the two standing and gazing while one of them points. I thought, "Well, they weren't always standing around and pointing! They had to take a bathroom break now and again!" In using the Lewis & Clark silhouette, I came up with an idea for some signs: [ATTACH=CONFIG]27395[/ATTACH]

    I was just playing with some different concepts with this cartoon. You know- what type of funeral would Colonel Sanders, if he was also a Christian Minister, give for a dead chicken? [ATTACH=CONFIG]27394[/ATTACH]

    One of my favorite lines from the movie "The Wonder Boys" could be interpreted concretely: [ATTACH=CONFIG]27393[/ATTACH]

    Inspiration comes in all forms. Sometimes just considering old adages like "The squeaky wheel gets the grease". The squeaky wheel could also be a mouse who would find it a blessing to get greased by Fr. Grease Gun. [ATTACH=CONFIG]27392[/ATTACH]

    When I was about 15 years old, the band American had a hit with a song titled "Horse With No Name". The song had great lyrics with lyrics that could stimulate a lot of visual imagery, like "The first thing I met was a fly with a buzz"... [ATTACH=CONFIG]27391[/ATTACH]

    I live on the side of a valley where the bottoms will flood from time to time and there are caution road signs that warn of the possibility of water covering the road. What if the signs were not of the caution variety, but of the entertainment for spectators variety? [ATTACH=CONFIG]27388[/ATTACH]
