Do you think I could just leave this part blank and it'd be okay? We're just going to replace the whole thing with a header image anyway, right?

Is there such a thing as TOO Much fun?

It seems like if you have too much fun, you will get bored of it. Which results in a loss of fun. It would appear that fun is self regulating, preventing you from hitting some unknown upper bound. But is this really the case?


Can you have TOO much fun, or will you always hit some upper bound on fun and stop having fun?

I guess the upper bound is having a heart attack, and I'm sure someone has probably died of a fun induced heart attack, so I guess yes, you can have too much fun

Re: Is there such a thing as TOO Much fun?

no it's impossible to have too much, because im always bored and never can have fun, i tired new things but i feel nothing and not satified, and plus if there were you wouldn't want to do anything anymore you would feel like relaxing and sleeping. thats what i feel like when i feel good.

but at the same time, if someone is particularly hedonistic (I mean who isn't if they're having this much fun?) then they're probably looking for the greatest of highs...

so if the greatest of highs you can get ends with death, does that bother them? I mean I guess it depends on if they want a ton of mediocre "fun" throughout their years or the mother of all fun in one short burst?

ultimately, even so much fun ending in death doesn't necessarily make it a bad thing... hmm

if we equate the natural experience of fun to that of the unnatural influence of drug abuse, we could say that losing sensitivity to the influx of neurotransmitters is negative as the individual is more prone to overdosing...

Nah. Doing something super fun may raise the bar for the next X amount of time, but once you're bored your expectations will drop again and anything mildly entertaining will seem fun.

If you associate fun with laughter, maybe.

Re: Is there such a thing as TOO Much fun?

Yes. The society I live in wants too much fun and gets exactly that. Often, people in it cannot appreciate the moments that are not fun.

How so? I think good people can find just as much fun as they always have been able to be in this modern wworld. Unless you mean something else by fun than what I mean.

Re: Is there such a thing as TOO Much fun?

There are times and places to have fun, else you risk worsening your life in the long run. For example, if you decide to "have fun" at your workplace by pantsing people, you'd be likely to get fired. This would get you to an unemployed state where you either have to work to improve your situation, and/or stay unemployed and not be financially secure, stressing you out and reducing your overall levels of dopamine.
So, in the sense that you could be hurting yourself by having fun, there is most definitely such a thing as too much fun.
