The state we're in

Take a deep breath. Remember that deep down it's a beautiful world. Imagine the divinity of creation, the millions of evolutionary leaps and cosmic chances that brought us to live on this blue marble.

Then read this

Paramedics called to the store found VanLester unconscious on top of a DVD player, surrounded by shoppers seemingly oblivious to her, Mark O'Keefe, a spokesman for EVAC Ambulance, told Associated Press.
"I told them, 'Stop stepping on my sister! She's on the ground!'"

Now imagine being trampled to death by a group of shoppers, in a mad rush for cut-price technology. The warm sun and blue sky obliterated forever by the machine-stitched designer shoes of overweight consumers in a desperate scramble to save money. Relentless blows raining down on your face and neck as people stamp on you like a doormat because it's on sale.

I'm sorry, that was maybe a bit much for a Saturday night. Now repeat after me.
"we live in a beautiful world
yeah we do yeah we do"
