The Desire To Do Something Wrong

Well, let's just put things in context first and then let's take it from there. I was chatting with a friend in the evening about how a few people we knew were behaving foolishly. Here's the last bit of the transcript:

: i don't understand, how can ppl blindfold themselves... both X and Y.... ~shakes his head~

: guyz r silly
: no.. they aren't...some guys just CHOOSE to be silly...

Well, not EXACTLY a great revelation; but I just felt that more often than not, we KNOW what the correct thing to do is... It's just that the desire to do what is wrong is so tempting that we cannot tear ourselves away from it.
