RIP John Richard Whiteley
1943 – 2005
I’d just come back from my job interview and was feeling ‘blue’. The man interviewing for the job didn’t turn up so I have to reschedule. Anyway, I cheered myself up by taking some rocking photos of this blue bottle that had landed on the window. This week’s been very hot and this was Friday, the day the sun went away but the heat remained. I guess that’s why the little buzzing fella didn’t even mind me putting a flash on him. Needless to say, I hate blue bottles. I’ve got a buzz phobia! Even the fridge buzzing sometimes makes me nervous. I saw another spider, but this one was too quick to photo and I didn’t think of it at the time seeing as it was crawling on my bed… I don’t think I’ll get to sleep tonight. If you didn’t know by now, I’m easily paranoid. How did you know that? Are you stalking me? AAARGH!
Q: In a world full of suffering, is pain a universally understood, objective phenomenon, or is one never fully able to comprehend the pain of others, even when extrapolating from our own subjective experience?
A: Why don’t I poke you in the eye and find out?
Who else could combine such relentless cynicism with complex swirls of smarts, apathy and love for pizza? Clearly this quiz, and the rest of our world, has somehow been zapped into your animated universe, where we shall dwell forever. Can we crash at your place?
