Would You Rather:

Anything that doesn't take years of your life and drive you to suicide hardly seems worth doing.
― Cormac McCarthy
Would your rather do something important that takes years off your life and drives you to madness or just be normal? The problem with normal is that it drives you to madness too. You're basically a cog in an enormous machine and the machine doesn't care about the cogs. The machine cares about itself. Cogs are expendable. They have a certain shelf life and when that's reached the cog is replaced.

So what would you rather do?


  1. I think no matter what you do, you are still a cog in the machine. Which cog hasn't been replaced?

  2. Cormac McCarthy was just a cog in the entertainment industry? Taking enormous personal risk and living in poverty for the sake of his work so that some Hollywood producer could buy a second home in Malibu? Maybe you're right.
