Today I've learned about choices, or lack thereof. In my attempt to share, we will cover 2 not/choices each with a specific example.

1) Hobson's choice - The choice of taking either that which is offered or nothing; the absence of a real alternative. For example: the Hobbesian choice which is "Your money or your life".

2) Morton's Fork - Otherwise known as a Catch-22. For example, Sophie's Choice - This is really a book and movie, but if you've familiar, then you know how it goes. All the choices will have you damned.

ok ok. Today i had a small setback in my quest to be gainfully unemployed. Last night I ruined dinner and had to order pizza. Today I ate 2 bars of german chocolate and didn't wash dishes. my world is so very very small.
