at-home flu test
Flu season is over, but that doesn’t mean we can stop asking ourselves questions about what’s going on in our lives. You may be wondering, “Is it me?” or “Will I have the flu?” or “Should I drink something?” These questions give the voice of caution the ability to set us in motion.
I’ve been in the game room at PAX East for the last two days asking myself the same questions. I’m also thinking about what I should do in my life. I’m not going to answer these questions until I have a better idea of my life and what I want to do. But I know as soon as I do answer them, I feel like I’m going to be better at them, and that makes me feel better.
It’s really easy to get into the mindset that you should never do something, or never talk about something, or that you should “never” do anything at all. There’s a lot of people who just go through life and never question themselves. This is a lot like that, except instead of asking yourself what to do, you’re asking yourself what not to do. It’s easy to feel like there’s no point to even trying to do anything because there’s no “you” involved.
That’s exactly what we’re doing at our studio. We’re learning the best ways to not let ourselves get stuck in autopilot mode and ask ourselves what not to do. We’re creating a list of the things we want to do and saying, “Let’s test these out on people today.” We’re not saying, “These are the things I should do.
You can test yourself without the aid of a doctor. You can also test yourself on a friend’s list, even if they know what youre doing. The problem is if youre not aware of the things you need to do. If you are, you’re going to feel like you’re not doing them.
Yes, I know this is more than just the flu, but I think it shows just how different the two conditions are. We all know that we can get stuck in autopilot mode and that it can be disorienting. But I bet many of us also know that we can also get stuck in autopilot mode and that it can be disorienting too. We all know that we can get stuck in autopilot mode and that it can be disorienting too.
This is why I think autotune should be banned. I mean, I can see why it’s a problem, and I can see why people might think it’s better to listen to the radio or watch TV instead of doing things that require us to be fully engaged in the moment. But I think it’s way too easy to turn it into this super-autotune button.
Autotune works by putting a ton of processing power into a tiny volume that can only be heard a little bit. This process is completely involuntary and can be disorienting. So I would say the solution is to ban autotune.
I disagree. While I find the idea of banning the radio-and-TV sound for everyone to turn all the time just a little bit creepy, I also think the idea of banning music as well is probably a little bit overkill. Maybe if you have a whole room full of people who want to listen to music and have no problem with the amount of noise it creates, then banning all music is a really effective way to solve the problem.
I think the answer is both. I’m not a fan of radio and TV or the idea of having people turn the volume up all the time or turn it all the way up, but I also think that there are better ways to solve the problem of people who have no idea what they are doing when they turn on their radio or TV or play music.
