Techniques to Being Oblivious[edit]

The following techniques will help you in your quest for ignorance. obey them with all your heart.

Constantly use your cell phone[edit]

Become addicted to it. It is your new best friend, an even bigger friend than most of the friends you spend all your waking hours talking to them about it. If you don't have a cell phone, get one. NOW.

On no occasion are you to actually hang up your cell phone. You are to keep talking until they hang up on You. If you hang up on them, you may not muster up enough energy to start talking aimlessly to someone else.

Don't get a Bluetooth headset to talk to anyone. You must actually be using your hands to block your view, thus enhancing your experience on being oblivious.


If you determine that getting a cell phone is too costly, you may determine that you need to find another way to become ignorant of your surroundings. One way is to meditate on something that has nothing to do with the task at hand. To do this you must be completely focused on being oblivious.

Sit in one spot and do not move. Think about something else. Sing a little song. Loudly. This is especially effective for tuning someone out and sending a clear message that you want people to shut up or you just like being annoying.

Join A Club[edit]

They will sell your soul just so they can the few extra bucks of fundraising money, and you will never even notice. Perfect if you're absolutely desperate not to notice anything.

If you get into the higher ranks of any club, you will start manipulating other people yourself instead of just being manipulated. DO NOT LET THIS HAPPEN. If you become a manipulator, it requires you to actually pay attention to other people' reactions. STOP IT!

Ignorance Is Bliss[edit]

Always remember one thing: Ignorance is bliss. Never ask questions. Just be glad you don't know. Don't talk. Don't look. Don't listen. You don't know anything about it. At all. Ever. Just stop thinking about it. NOW. SERIOUSLY!
