What is fun?
The Shakespearean character of Falstaff is a tragic-comic embodiment of self-
indulgence in vices. Unfortunately, many people equate such self-indulgence
with fun. This is unfortunate, because most fun is imaginary, harmful, and
expensive. The fun of being tipsy from alcohol, high from marijuana, or sated
from sweets, is flimsy and ephemeral, compared to the lingering and painful
after-effects of addiction. The sad truth is that most fun is hell you enjoy.
