I was looking for that LW post that talked about akrasia as a deliberately evolved defense mechanism, preventing you from, for example, killing yourself by using willpower to not eat, in an attempt to lose weight. Or by working yourself to death. I spent a few minutes searching, but didn't find this article yet. I was hoping that that article would be linked from this wikipage, but it currently isn't. If anyone reading this happens to have a link to the article, could you please add it to the wiki page? Or maybe just post the link here please? Thanks. --PeerInfinity 18:23, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
