Why a fencepost is better than you.

My anti-life coach Charlie Brooker says that "we (humans) are but a random assembly of atoms, of less consequence and meaning than the average fencepost, which at least has a definable purpose". He admits that if one were to beam this message over to the masses, the national suicide rate may rise slightly,but points out that "it'd be character-building".

Given that I consider him to be the voice in my head - only saying things much more interesting and much more superbly analysed than anything that my dumb block of grey cells can come up with or handle, I can't but agree whole-heartedly.
