In perhaps their most callous episode of Hot Topics yet, Keith and Elaine deal with all of the bad news of the world, from tornadoes to typhoons to shootings to kids with cancer to Rob Ford, by resorting to humor. We swear though that we are good people, and this is simply how we’re coping with the “new normal,” which is pretty terrible. At least we have Jean-Claude van Damme’s superhuman level of flexibility to distract us!

Also, find out what Keith and Elaine are “no-thankful” for in our special segment “Happy NO-Thanks-giving!”

Human beings are not objectivity-driven machines. We all intrinsically perceive and process the world through subjective prisms. What is the value in pretending otherwise?
Glenn Greenwald
This is the way we are,” says Cowan. “We encourage young women to live their lives a certain way—and it has nothing to do with what feels right. We tell them they’re not pretty enough: that’s what we bombard them with. Get on the treadmill, bust your ass at work. I think we’re living in a culture that’s so demanding: You never feel like you’re good enough. It wears people down.

Alcohol as Escape From Perfectionism

I agree with this quote, but I also agree with this comment: “Ironically, I think this self-flagellation for having two to three drinks around dinner is just another aspect of that perfectionism.”

So what are we going to do?…Perhaps opt out of perfectionism? Easier said than done, I know. But it’s a start. I’m not sure how much good overworked, white collar, meritocratic, yuppiedom does anyone.
