quickly, but painfully

ok so i just watched this chinese movie ( it was so artsy and weird; but the women wore louboutins so it’s ok i guess) called “ALL ABOUT WOMEN” and it was about women finding love; and this one woman who is a doctor / scientist made pheormone patches so that this guy would fall in love with her.

naturally; from what i read (on wikipedia) pheromones don’t really work in humans like how they work in animals; so i think her invention won’t really work in real life.

but the moral of the story is basically; if a woman is willing; she’d sacrifice EVERYTHING and make the man she loves fall in love with her; if that means patching herself continuously for the rest of her life so the pheromone won’t wear off.

i remembered this other quote in this other movie (with that guy from american pie) and someone poignantly pointed out that “love is nothing but a bunch of biochemical reactions”.

Naturally; I wikipedia’d that shit!

yeah it is isn’t it? ( click for diagram! )

We learned in physiology labs that if I inject oxytocin and acetylcholine in a rat smooth muscle; the neurotransmitters would induce contractions while if i inject doses of epinephrine; contractions would decline and eventually halt.

i think it doesn’t work like that with “feelings”.

i dont know how but i always manage to send the “wrong message” to people.

my feelings of friendship and care are always interpreted as “love” which is HELLA ANNOYING!!!!

someone told me that if i want to receive care from friends i need to show it first; so that’s what i do and they end up running away from me thinking that i’ve fallen for them.

um no; asshole =_=

p.s. i’ve become a loner; it’s official!!

p.p.s. looking for other loners to hang out with and be loner-ish together by rejecting facebook and MSN but not twitter because only awesome internet people are on twitter and not people that make you feel bad in real life. yay!
