It’s been a long ass week, and I don’t have much. So sue me.

If you haven’t already, you should read Bright Sided: How Positive Thinking is Undermining America. If you’re a pessimist yourself, you’ve probably noticed how people put on their Poop Face if you don’t subscribe to positive thinking. The author shows how positive thinking has taken over, especially in the corporate culture and religious context.
