The (stream of conscious?) venting thread for INTPs

I thought that we could use a thread like this. I know there is a "confessions" thread, but that's not quite the same, and we haven't had a proper "INTP Madness" thread (which is my reading of "stream of consciousness") since the crush thread and it's ill-begotten clones were banished to the Land of Winds and Ghosts (also known as Spam World).

So (copying from the original):

Take issue with something going on in society?

Having a bad day?

Have something on your mind that wont go away?

Experience something so fabulous you just have to express it?

Accidentally sold your mother to a pimp in a back alley game of poker?

Have an idea, or discover something so amazing you must tell everyone?

Post your vent (or experience, idea, etc.) here!

This thread is not for venting about other members, the moderators, or the forum.
Don't over-spam the thread (I can't expect INTPs not to spam a least a little) lest it be sent screaming into the spam-abyss.

It's hard trying to contemplate the world as a whole because for one extreme, there's always another extreme in the opposite direction to balance it out, and when you try to take in all the information available in the world trying to run simulations in your head with all the data that you gathered via empathy and intuition, your mind itself ends up being split in two.

Luckily for me, I managed to combine my fractured psyche somewhere in the middle, and now I feel...neutral.

"Howdy" is actually a short abbreviation of "How do you do?"

Strange I haven't noticed it yet.

If people know how to catch a thrown ball, does that mean that they inherently know the quadratic equation?

I found a band of hair on the kitchen floor at my workplace, and I declared to everyone that I would purchase some agarose gel and conduct electrophoresis to separate the genetic strands and see who's hair it belonged to.

The hostess said that I was weird.

I'm going to discover how to manipulate hallucinations and delusions in a way that allows for easier management and monitoring of mental and physical processes in the body that may not be perceived by the senses, such as the recognition of the origins of certain unconscious thoughts, or the ability to manipulate hallucinations to one's advantage, like an imaginative blackboard capable of retaining hard to remember notes for long periods of time, or the capability to take advantage of the body's functions like the application of adrenaline in situations that aren't life threatening.

I'll call it psycho-conditioning.
