    Erotic asphyxiation or breath control play is the intentional restriction of oxygen to the brain for the purposes of sexual arousal. This sexual practice is variously called asphyxiophilia, autoerotic asphyxia, hypoxyphilia. The term autoerotic asphyxiation is used when the act is done by a person to themselves. Colloquially, a person engaging in the activity is sometimes called a gasper.[1]

    so maybe its not possible to have adult fun. maybe fun is predicated on a naughty schoolboy mindsett

    Default Fun is the absence of responsibility

    [from my book of aphorisms to be published in 1647 under a nom de plume]

    It doesn't matter what the activity, meditation, drinking, etc. What matters is that you're not worrying about anything.

    One of my dad's hobbies is doing maths, so instead of kicking a ball around he'd be working out nth-order trinomials, or whatever. So that is his idea of fun.

    I remember watchng Haneke films with my mate, which I considered some of the most brutal, horrible shit I'd ever seen. I told him that nothing is good in this film. He said well look, that lock (on a door that had just closed in the film) is good. So maybe he was closer to Woebot's way of thinking than me.

    Fun is easier if there's something in your head or your life (or both) you want to escape. it becomes more difficult to have fun when you're generally content in life.

    satisfaction is all well and good, but i think maybe i prefer(red?) fun

    I'm going to go out drinking now. We've reached our comedy answer quota now. Meaningful and considered engagement only now ta.

    getting drunk and forgetting your worries is the easiest route to fun.
    its the responsibility/reality (whether mental or material)-forgetting tool that allows for whatever follows. maybe fun is just being able to act against your self (and the external factors that prevent you from being able to summon that self without drink).

    there are obviously other ways to have fun though. without drinking. but i think most of those things (whether playing a game or maybe just watching comedies or whatever) are also to do with helping you to forget yourself. to bypass cognition maybe?
    (though i think you can have fun playing a competitive game, though maybe thats more about 'satisfaction' than actual fun, unless youre just 'playing' and not competing, in which case its a laugh, and therefore fun)

    Competition is never fun. I don't like losing but I also hate winning.

    I've found this to be an obnoxiously overused phrase. People say it when you're going to the corner shop for milk, or to the toilet.
