    It seems if you have bad thoughts you want to purge from consciousness, write the thought down ' I want to rape that 12 YO next door' for example. Then throw away the paper and the thought goes with the paper!

    Regardless of that works or not...

    You really need to burn that paper before you throw it away.

    Well, lets modify the procedure a bit: Eat the dam paper.

    Then you are in danger of internalizing your bad thoughts.

    "In a new study, researchers found that when people wrote down their thoughts on a piece of paper and then threw the paper away, they mentally discarded the thoughts as well.
    On the other hand, people were more likely to use their thoughts when making judgments if they first wrote them down on a piece of paper and tucked the paper in a pocket to protect it."

    A ritual burning of the paper would do the job nicely, I think, provided you completed the task by flushing the ashes down the toilet.

    Lmao. The first six posts on this thread would make great dialogue in a movie.

    Yep, but I first heard it from Pete. I was his opening act at Will Geer's ranch a long time ago. I really pissed him off, you could see steam coming out his ears when I said something about him not playing his great 12 string guitar (he had only taken his banjo). That was a bit of a surprise.
