Happy Single and Bad Relationship Self-Awareness Day!

I was thinking just now about how amazing Tylenol is. That may sound kind of dumb but think about it: not only will Tylenol basically resolve any aches and pains you might have as long as you take it every four to six hours until the ache goes away naturally, but it knows where the ache or pain is and what's causing it. I mean we don't have separate painkillers like Tylenol Headache, Tylenol Backache, Tylenol Pulled Muscle, or Tylenol Fever. We just have one Tylenol, and whichever one of those you are suffering from, Tylenol will identify the problem and fix it. Tylenol knows everything!

Not only does Tylenol know everything, but it also shows how we know pretty much everything about physical pain too, at least compared to how little we know about emotional pain. I mean just think about how great it would be if we had even separate emotional painkillers. Or if we even had a painkiller for just one kind of emotional pain, and all you had to do was take it every four to six hours until the pain went away naturally!

But we don't. There's no Tylenol Disappointment, or Tylenol Grief-Stricken, or Tylenol Heartbreak. There's no Tylenol Life.

  4. Under 5% of the ingested Tylenol will actually be metabolized in the liver into a toxic metabolite, N-acetyl-p-benzoquinone (NAPQI)... FYI :P

  9. I think they're called anti-depressants?

  10. Oh, come now. Surely one doesn't need anti-depressants for the ordinary travails of life any more than one needs chemotherapy for a headache.
