    You really should, it's good stuff. I happen to like the movie, but the graphic novel is where it's at.

    Yes, I'm a snobbish elitist.

    Good evening.

    A wild ytzk appears! What have you been up to recently, old chap?

    This is indeed a good morning.

    Unless you've been away because one of your favourite relations died, in which case, I'm sorry, that sucks, dude.

    And good morning!

    What do you mean? Do you wish him a good morning, or mean that it is a good morning whether he wants it or not; or that you feel good this morning; or that it is a morning to be good on?

    I found "Here comes the Rape" especially foreboding.

    Good morning.

    I just had a look if I could buy the "Here comes the rope" gift for my brother as a joke present (usually all we exchange these days), and while I couldn't find it anywhere, I did stumble on this article:

    https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2013/mar/02/amazon-withdraws-rape-slogan-shirt

    There's something about the imperative "Keep calm and hit her" that's so incredibly sinister I couldn't help but find it hilarious. I know, I know, there's something wrong with me.

    Good morning.

    There are no brakes on the calm train.

    Good day.

    So, between Hannah Arendt's Eichmann In Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil and Jordan Peterson's 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos, I finally got around reading Astrid Lindgren's Mio, min Mio (Mio, My Son in English). Because that was its placement on the shelf of newly acquired books.



    "It is the bird of sorrow singing about tomorrow" always gets to me, for some reason.

    Astrid Lindgren is a national fucking treasure.

    Good evening.

    Personally I'm doing well, but things have been quiet around here recently. I think the problem is that all the protagonists left, leaving just us antagonists.

    Good morning.

    I always considered you more of a deuteragonist myself.

    I'm the hero of my own story, after all.

    Good day.

    I figured my doomsaying had become redundant, given the news and the weather, but I am still standing by with told-you-so.

    Sadly I probably cant hide all of you in my attic but I can probably coach a small band in wilderness survival, fallout notwithstanding.

    Good morning.

    I've got a fairly sizezable supply of canned food, water and other things stored, just in case. I've got this hemisphere covered, you've got yours.

    Good day.

    I have an unopened carton of tomato juice that I bought in 2011 in the back of a cupboard, so I think I'll be fine.

    Good morning.

    I always just hoarded survival experience and a really unhealthy paranoia but sadly, I turned forty before armageddon and I am pretty much planning on being eaten by my neighbours now.

    Wazuuup.
