Some people seem to be annoyed all the time. It’s almost as if they must be, they need to be. They were probably given a healthy dose of that annoyance gene in utero. Now, since the government loves spending our money so much, they should stop spending it on climate change. The climate gets cold and then it gets hot. It’s not really scary unless you’re smoking something, but the arguments about it are very annoying. Instead they should find that darn annoyance gene. Oh yes, that discovery would be a true service to humanity. Of course we would probably put a lot of therapists, psychologists and psychiatrists out of business. But there are lot’s of other vocations they could choose from. So many others have been forced into new vocations due to outsourcing/offshoring why not therapists too? If a therapist got a job flipping burgers just think the benefit they would bring to their fellow employees that were formerly IT specialists or some other professional, but now they’re not. It would go a long way to quelling any suicidal thoughts. They could explain to them, “See, when life closes a door in your face, it really hurts.” That information could help a lot.
In any case, getting rid of annoyance at the genetic level would be a big step towards not getting annoyed. It’s just not rock science.
