A friend of mine just posted a link to an interesting article:

Rapid Thinking Makes People Happy

This totally matches my observations, yet I'd never consciously realized that was what was going on, let alone articulated it so clearly. This probably also explains why high-tempo music with lyrics cheers me up, because my language center is being stimulated at plus-normal speed, and why driving fast in heavy traffic cheers me up like nothing else. This is going to be an incredibly useful tool in my anti-depression arsenal.*

* Which, frankly, I desperately need right now.

Yet more proof that I'm far from neurotypical.

Ha! So my watching anime on 1.5x speed is therapeutic, not an example of a creepy old guy wanting to cram in half-again as much fan service as would normally be possible.

Oh, I intend to. The last series I finished was Gonzo's _Witchblade_, which was extremely, um, therapeutic (http://www.majorspoilers.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/10/WB_Anime_v1_colored.jpg). :)

PS Sent you email last week, did you get it? Sounds like things have been hectic for you, so I don't want to come off as nagging or anything like that. Just checking.
