Fighting Seasonal Affective Disorder with Afro-futurism

offer void where prohibited by law

My fellow citizens, I write to you now with the purest intentions.  At heart I am an altruist.  I work constantly to comfort the afflicted (and consequently  afflict the comfortable). That said.   I've noticed several of my friends moping around the internet conveying a general malaise about the state of their affairs (Exempli gratia: oh curse my seasonal affective disorder... oh darkness, I want thusly to turn a pistol to my temple and be done with it!)

What is it REALLY?

Seasonal affective disorder (SAD), also known as winter depression or winter blues, is a mood disorder in which people who have normal mental health throughout most of the year experience depressive symptoms in the winter. repeatedly, year after year. The US National Library of Medicine notes that "some people experience a serious mood change when the seasons change. They may sleep too much, have little energy, and crave sweets and starchy foods. They may also feel depressed. (source wikipedia)

A Cure with "Science"?

There are many different treatments for classic (winter-based) seasonal affective disorder, including light therapies with bright lights, anti-depression medication,ionized-air administration and cognitive-behavioral therapy.

Poppycock.  I say this is an elaborate HOAX perpetrated by liberalmedia and the all powerful LIGHT BULB LOBBYISTS! 

Now I don't have time to post any proof or backup my statements here in this blogpost but you can google "Seasonal Affective Disorder Hoax" and get several return hits on those particular search terms. 

Hey RR Anderson, you're a man of woeful countenance, What keeps you from committing suicide like a teenage/myspace girl? 

Two words.  

Afrofuturism, or afro-futurism.


Afro-futurism is an African diaspora cultural and literary movement whose thinkers and artists see science, technology and science fiction as means of exploring the black experience.  READ MORE ABOUT THE WONDERS OF AFROFUTURISM

Verily, they say prevention is 200% better than a cure. Please watch this video and watch your problems dissolve away like a sand castle if it were constructed on top of the world trade center as it fell on 9-11� engulfed in flames.

RR Anderson is one of the most curious characters in the UFO lore and the history of underground cartooning. He fought bizarre underground beings in the caves of Alaska, was wounded by a laser before it was invented, and had a background with the clandestine branch of the Tacoma Cartoonists Society.
