human habit.

July 4, 2008

i read once that human beings are the only creatures on earth that will repeatedly continue to do something that always results in an unpleasant outcome.

i think that the odds of this statement being true are fairly high.

i should really just learn my lesson and keep to myself.

    It depends on the time period under consideration. It is often wise to do something that is briefly unpleasant but serves a greater purpose. Similarly, it can be unwise to do something that only passingly results in pleasure.

    but what about the repetition aspect?

  3. This reminds me of when when I would procrastinate, not study and fail mu tests heh
