To quote Marvin from Hitcherhikers Guide. But, look around and tell me how much control we have over our lives, really, how much? Our society is image-obssessed, our politicians corrupt to the point of being a joke and the majority of us spend most of the day worrying about the future, sighing over the past and bemoaning the present.

The television, ye gods, I've never seen such a pile of unadulterated horseshit in all my life. Reality TV - yeah, sure - like hell. Big Brother (or Big Mother) takes place in a specially designed house, where the activities of alleged adults, who have never met before being chosen for the series, are monitored by CCTVs, they go to a special room, where they can gripe about their fellow inmates to another camera. 'Scuse me - where does the reality bit take place? Other tv programmes have, unfortunately, followed in their footsteps and we decided enough was enough. The tv is now used to watch videos.

Weapons Of Mass Destruction, or WMDs to spin quacks, I have a theory about that, too. As soon as we find a warehouse full of packets of peanuts, these will be cited as proof of a devious plot to infiltrate the foodchain with a substance (peanuts), that will produce an allergic reaction in millions of people. How about a more obvious answer? We were lied to from the beginning by President Bush and Tony (Fido) Blair, the WMDs don't exist, (unless they meant the DTs).

Well, this is my first essay, since I left school in 1972 and I hope it's brevity won't be mistaken for intelligence, it's just that I can't think of anything else to moan about at the moment.

In five hundred years time, most of us will be forgotten dust. But Hitler will still be remembered, God loves irony.
