Anger Management......
.......................................................................................

When you are chatting to someone online you undergo a various range of emotions. However, since you get used to knowing that the person at the other end is not going to be able to see you actually blushing, jumping up and down or pulling your hair, you learn to curb the physical manifestation of those emotions. You learn to equivocate these emotions through cyber mannerisms and emoticons. For example, you will use the blushing emoticon, when you want to express yourself to be blushing without physically blushing at all. Similarly, when you want to scream and shout from anger, you just turn the caps lock on and type in ALL CAPS.


This behavior leads to my new anger management tool to train people with anger management problems. The idea is to subject them to chatting sessions and while they are at it to trigger their anger. This will train their neural network to express their anger through turning on the caps lock key without any whatsoever physical signs of anger like chair thrashing and objects throwing. At the end of the session they will be provided a wrist band with a depressable caps lock key, pressing of which will turn on a green light on the band simulating the real keyboard situation. Thus they will learn to control themselves when they are angry by just pressing this caps lock key on their wristband. Thus when they are angry they can just talk and behave like they would normally do, but then again, it would be taken care of because the caps lock key would be on. Its being planned to get the wristbands out in blue, black, military green for men and soft pink, lavender, silky white for women.

I guess that doesnt necessarily hold true. Because when I send out an emoticon which says that I am blushing, it actually does mean that I am blushing, literally. And if I am angry just CAPSLOCKING all that I am writing will not vent out all my anger (well that depends on how angry I am).

Anyways, EHP, where do you get all the inspiration for your posts? :))
