Hilarious song about having 'no more f***s to give' is a battle cry we can all relate to

Whenever life becomes too tedious or stressful, it seems that the human psyche has a release valve that turns on and we just go, "F it."

I give up. I no longer care. I got nothing left.

It's a wonderful moment when we go from being at our wits end to being on the other side of the madness. Because, after all, as Mark Manson, author of "The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck" says:

You and everyone you know are going to be dead soon. And in the short amount of time between here and there, you have a limited amount of fucks to give. Very few, in fact.

Thomas Benjamin Wild Esq. perfectly encapsulates this feeling in a song he released last year on his debut album "Awkward Encounters While Walking My Dog" called "I've No More F***s To Give."

Played on a banjolele — a combination of a banjo and ukulele popular in the England Dance Hall days of the 1900s — it's a song about trying to accomplish something in life, coming up and empty, and reaching the point where you're blissfully over it.

Wild is an English singer who's been performing around the UK for the past three years. According to his website, his debut album reached number 3 in the Billboard Comedy Albums Chart, and features a collection of original satirical songs about the modern world delivered with good old fashioned style, wit, and wisdom.

You can hear more of his music on Spotify.

"I've No More F***s To Give"

I've tried, tried, tried, and i've tried even more

I've cried, cried, cried, and I can't recall what for

I've pressed, I've pushed, I've yelled, I've begged

In hopes of some success

But the inevitable fact is that it never will impress!

I've no more fucks to give

My fucks have runneth dry

I've tried to go fuck shopping but there's no fucks left to buy!

I've no more fucks to give

Though more fucks I've tried to get

I'm over my fuck budget, and i'm now in fucking debt!

I strive, strive, strive, to get everything done

I've played by all the rules, but I've very rarely won

I've smiled, I've charmed, I've wooed and laughed, alas to no avail

I've run round like a moron, to unequivocally fail!

I've no more fucks left to give

My fuck fuse has just blown

I've been hunting for my fucks all day but they've upped and fucked off home!

I've no more fucks to give

My fuck rations are depleted

I've rallied my fuck army but it's been fucking defeated!

The effort has just not been worth the time or the expense!

I've exhausted all my energy, for minimal recompense!

The distinct lack of acknowledgement has now begun to gall!

And I've come to realize that I don't give a fuck at all!

I've no more fucks to give

My fucks have flown away

My fucks are now so fucked off they've refused to fucking stay!

I've no more fucks to give

My fucks have gone insane

They've come back round and passed me while they're fucking off again!

I've no more fucks to give

My fucks have all dissolved

I've planned many projects, but my fucks won't be involved!

I've no more fucks to give

My fucks have all been spent

They've fucked off from the building and I don't know where they went!

If someone were to say "video games" to you, what are the first words that come to mind? Whatever words you thought of (fun, exciting, etc.), we're willing to guess "healthy" or "mental health tool" didn't pop into your mind.

And yet… it turns out they are. Especially for Veterans.

How? Well, for one thing, video games — and virtual reality more generally — are also more accessible and less stigmatized to veterans than mental health treatment. In fact, some psychiatrists are using virtual reality systems for this reason to treat PTSD.

Secondly, video games allow people to socialize in new ways with people who share common interests and goals. And for Veterans, many of whom leave the military feeling isolated or lonely after they lose the daily camaraderie of their regiment, that socialization is critical to their mental health. It gives them a virtual group of friends to talk with, connect to, and relate to through shared goals and interests.

In addition, according to a 2018 study, since many video games simulate real-life situations they encountered during their service, it makes socialization easier since they can relate to and find common ground with other gamers while playing.

This can help ease symptoms of depression, anxiety, and even PTSD in Veterans, which affects 20% of the Veterans who have served since 9/11.

Watch here as Verizon dives into the stories of three Veteran gamers to learn how video games helped them build community, deal with trauma and have some fun.

Video games have been especially beneficial to Veterans since the beginning of the pandemic when all of us — Veterans included — have been even more isolated than ever before.

And that's why Verizon launched a challenge last year, which saw $30,000 donated to four military charities.

And this year, they're going even bigger by launching a new World of Warships charity tournament in partnership with Wargaming and Wounded Warrior Project called "Verizon Warrior Series." During the tournament, gamers will be able to interact with the game's iconic ships in new and exciting ways, all while giving back.

Together with these nonprofits, the tournament will welcome teams all across the nation in order to raise money for military charities helping Veterans in need. There will be a $100,000 prize pool donated to these charities, as well as donation drives for injured Veterans at every match during the tournament to raise extra funds.

Verizon is also providing special discounts to Those Who Serve communities, including military and first responders, and they're offering a $75 in-game content military promo for World of Warships.

Tournament finals are scheduled for August 8, so be sure to tune in to the tournament and donate if you can in order to give back to Veterans in need.
