On Ask Polly: My Boyfriend Won't Stop Raging About My Sexual History

@antarctica starts here
I dated two dudes in a row and the same thing happened with both of them. (I stopped dating for a while after that and asked myself some hard questions about how I was selecting dudes...)

One day, out of the blue, he would accuse me of cheating on him, and a week or so later I found out he had cheated on me. WTF?

It's like he was torn between admission and keeping the secret so the truth came out as an accusation? I dunno, but I ran like hell from both of them. And eventually found someone awesome.

On Neanderthals Were Just Like Today's Brooklynites

Wow, it's like how my cat doesn't sleep in the same place he takes a dump. Those neanderthals sure were sharp!

On Elements of Trolldom: Katie Roiphe and Pico Iyer

Can someone translate this one?
" the more attention we pay to the moment, the less time and energy we have to place it in some larger context."

What is the meaning of this sentence? How does paying attention to what we are already doing take up more time?
