Prophet of a litigious age. In 1969 P.K Dick wrote a noel (UBIK) with characters being sued by their own front door.
He did indeed. If I remember rightly he envisioned an entire Pay-As-You-Go planet. In this case the main character has an urgent task but is unable to afford the exit fee to go out of his own talking front door, as it howls in protest he forces it open at which point it shrieks about suing him.
How many more fragments before I start scribbling properly?
Many, many, many more with alas no end in sight.
On average the emotion of Rage can only be sustained for 5 minutes. Get through the temporary madness.
A useful bit of knowings especially in the face of someone who is incandescent, squawking like a loon and hopping around like a bananaless Bonobo.
Just glance at your watch and remind yourself that in five minutes they probably won't be.
For £1.00 / $1.00 I can guarantee you eternity
Excellent value for money. How thoroughly remiss of me to have lost how I intended to do this.
Not really, I do of course know how to offer you eternity for a pound but I can only tell you on days that don't have a Y in them.
6.5 billion stars one stripe
A great metaphor for a future planet of equality freedom and friendship or an image of a nightmare clone-alone society. Probably knowing us domesticated primates a bit of both.
Permanent occupation up on the moral high ground
My shameless ego offers great deals on tents, bivouacs and all your camping needs for you to come on up and share this self righteous plot. A great opportunity to look down on everyone and be so far up you need never hear what anyone else has to say ever again.
This may bring a tiny tiny tight smile to someone who spends their life chalking great streams of algebra. But is no doubt sub own-brand nonsense to everyone else.
