I crave the escapism of intoxicants. Don't we all? One man's beer is another person's Nabakov. The Information Age is destined to end quickly. It's just a matter of figuring out what the next age will be. The Continuing Ignorance Age? The Third World War? Maybe we should kick the EU before they get too big. The Muslims are the poorest people still rich enough to fight back. God, if there is one, must join me in hating this place. I don't know how any of you stand it. Oh barkeep! I'll take a double brandy water cloudy.
