When Can You Talk About Fight Club

Everytime I share with someone I’ve written a book about Fight Club, I’m reminded by that person that the first two rules of Fight Club are you can’t talk about it. Okay… Bullshit.

First, Fight Club is a fictional club. Debate over.

Second, we were never part of this fictional club. Debate over.

Third, if you consider yourself part of this fictional club and willing to lay down the law for a character that never existed… well, fuck you.

The Cause of Mental Illness

All of the following is my own opinion on the cause of mental illness. No facts. No published sources. Just me.

The True Cause of Mental Illness

It’s what I call the change cycle. Person A wants to change your behavior, so you are either submissive (flight), or you try to to change Person A’s behavior (fight).

“It’s not exactly a death sentence.” Julie stated.

The Russian

“It was in 2014. Putting prisoners to death is against the law there.”

Embracing the Shell

Embracing the shell was Jason’s next big Mindefusement move. He just had to convince the absolutely one person to convince: Mindefusement’s lead counsel, Julie Biggs.

“Go ahead,” Roth agreed.

“So it’s a gas station. There is no body there. Clouds are stormy lookin’. There looks like there’s going to be a fucking tornado, right?”
