The title is a question that has plagued my existence. There are days when I experience what humanity has to offer and think to myself that if I could push a big, red, shiny button that would end it all, I would. Then there are days when I experience what one individual has done to defy their programming and think to myself that maybe it's not so bad after all. Of course, I spend a lot of time on the internet so maybe I'm not experiencing the best examples of humanity. Then I switch on the news and realise that the internet is just a microcosm of the world in general. For these reasons, I loathe going outside and being anywhere near so-called human-beings. Hell, just today I witnessed yet another act of selfish ignorance. A car had pulled up just beyond a set of lights as the traffic was banked up. Another car was just slowing down, at a reasonable speed and keeping a reasonable distance from the car in front. Then a third car comes screaming up from behind in order to get through a red light before the cars from the perpendicular lanes got to that point and slammed on the brakes just before smashing into the second car which in turn caused it to lurch forward and smash into the first car. She then got out of the car and screamed at the other two that it was their fault. Did I mention I almost got run over the other day by a car careening around a corner, through a red light, whilst the walking signal was green and I was already half-way across the road and couldn't see traffic coming because the corner view is blocked by an underpass? Have you heard about Newtown, Connecticut? Today is not a day that I would stop myself from pushing that button.
