In a couple years, when you’re driving your buggy to work, remember – They’re from the government. And they’re here to help. Or at least they’re here to make you feel like they’re trying to help.

It’s about feeling like we tried out best to solve problems we dreamed up in the first place. It’s all about warm fuzzies – or is it fuzzy cooling, or maybe fuzzy climate change. I can never keep up.  

F*ckers. Gimme back my two weeks if you’re going to be playing with time and energy. No? Can’t do it? Then how about you focus on things that actually need changing?
