How to get pissed

This one is at last not about the Dead Weather, except in a way it is.

When Third Man announced that there'd be a Dead Weather show on the 3rd, and the competition was Right Now, a few people wrote in to the website to say how much that sucked, because they weren't on the computer right now and anyway they couldn't be in Nashville on Monday.

And I thought, dude, five minutes ago you weren't going to see the Dead Weather in Nashville and now, five minutes later, you aren't going to see the Dead Weather in Nashville.

Nothing in your life has changed, except now you're really pissed about it.

It's all about your attitude and not about phenomena.

I know it's easy to say because I won and they didn't, but I'm going to try to take this as an example for when something like that happens to me.

I thought this was going to be a tutorial on how to get properly inebriated. But I can comment on this subject as well. Envy is understandable and can be expected, but anger at another's good fortune baffles me. Being happy at the joy of another is nearly as good a high. Plus you get the benefits of living vicariously through the lucky bastard's experience.
