If You're Going To Do Something Wrong, Do It Right. Go to any bookstore and you will find entire sections devoted to self-help books. After reading these books, you will have the tools to make your life better. No matter what problem you might have you can bet someone has written a book about how to therapeutically resolve the matter and live a healthier, happier life. But let's face it; most of us don't really believe a book is going to help us. Most of us don't want someone trying to tell us how to face our inner demons and nurture our inner child. And those who do need to grow up and try living once in a while. What is needed is t a voice to tell you how to live a healthy, happy life, but how to live an interesting life. When you go to the movies or watch your favorite TV show, do the characters have perfect well-adjusted lives? Of course t. Perfect lives are t interesting lives. You want to kw why people who have 'everything going for them' kill themselves? Because they are bored. They have achieved what they've been told to achieve. They have the good grades, good job, nice car, 2.5 kids, and the house in the suburbs. And they are bored off their ass. They've been to the mountaintop and found that it's just really cold and lonely. I for one do t want to live a healthy, happy life. I want things to be fairly screwed up. I want to have problems. I want to get myself in huge messes and then marvel at how I get out of them or how I live with them. I like making mistakes and doing things the wrong way if only to find out what will happen. One of my best friends in the world never agrees with my decisions and hates everything I do. But she also wants to hear about the latest thing that's happened to me if only to live vicariously through my exploits. My name is Jack Cameron. I'm a guy who got married at the age of twenty, divorced at twenty-one, and went on a bender that left my aunt's house half-destroyed, a car on fire, and a high school girls swim team drunk and incoherent. I've been in twenty-six car accidents. I've been shot at on three separate occasions. I've woken up in an alley wrapped in a beer banner inSeattleon New Year's Day. I've willingly walked through a two mile train tunnel kwing full well that a train was coming. I've woken up on an airplane over thePacific Oceanwith idea how I got there. I have dined with millionaires with only two dollars in my pocket and made a thousand dollar decision with the flip of a coin. In other words, I am damn good at ruining my life and if you listen carefully to what I tell you, you can ruin yours too and have the best time you've ever had doing it. This is t self-help. This is self-destruct. In time, you'll thank me.
