Note that you got a buzz from knowing (roughly) what the title of this post means.
We come to a dichotomy … a `T` junction type thing.
If I is to get me jollies … and me jollies I is going to get … at what shall I point me jolly-getting-gun~?
The choice is –
I can do me meditation and big-up-me-ego on making for long-internal-zeros (In) (meditation)
I can play CandyCrush on me phone.
The thing about CandyCrush, is that it can be taken-away from me, whereas strong meditative technique is mine for life.
But, in this world, there will always be a thousand replacements for CandyCrush … and learning to meditate is a pain-in-the-arse.
I remember reading (a good few moons ago) that solitary-confinement is a killer for Western people, but there are other peoples for whom it would be paradise.
The thing is … `there is nothing to get`.
On a slightly different angle. Alexandr Solzhenitsyn wrote `Gulag` when doing time across the chain. He `kept his mind` active, by being able to recite the whole book word-for-word. That was him `keeping his gets together`.

I am pushing these, to show that the modern brain is programmed to want a lot of stimulus.
Given just a bit of hope, it will normally make-up enough silly-shit to keep its act together.
But, let those `hope levels` drop and the people will `go wild external` for their jollies.
Playing tennis is obvious to get what a `get` is.
Being `in the zone` is `getting your gets` but not internally amplifying them … just yet.
