Mildly unbelievable… mildly… but a good movie to distract from emotional turmoil. In case I haven’t complained to you yet, am going through a breakup… a dumb dumb breakup, where, if I am not mistaken, we both really like each other, but we can’t see each other because… ah, who cares why. Let’s just say it’s my fault and it’s all rational and we are both really hurt and I want to write bad poetry and complain to everyone who would listen about how much I miss her. In other words, a completely banal, yet personally difficult setup. The worst part is that I can’t talk to her for at least another several months. She asked and I agreed not to initiate contact and she, I am pretty sure, is doing the "out-of-sight, out-of-mind” thing. Mildly frustrating. Mildly.
But, I am now understanding why Russian humor is so unique given how miserable the last century was. Somehow misery can and does get evened out with humor if one is to retain balance… it’s uncanny. In particular, I’d like to thank GMail… or rather Google Ads on GMail. These are the ads displayed next to our email communication last. I kid you not:
Behold. Screenshot one:
And, if that wasn’t enough:
Anger therapy? Seriously? I mean, I looked over that email and I was most certainly upset. But “Anger Therapy”? Hilarious, even if interesting implications.
So, can Google diagnose people by looking over our emails? “Dear Sir, it looks like you are depressed. Go have carrot juice. It will make you feel better.”
Anyway, about Salt. Good movie to use for distraction. Non-stop action, and it’s just mildly unbelievable… mildly…
