Total Perspective Vortex

So, did you do the homework that The Blog assigned last night?

You did?


You didn't?

Well then, this is your lucky night.

You, my lazy blogglitts, have another 24 hours to catch up.

Because, it turns out, there are more absurd people in the world than just...

                                                      The Queen of the Tea Baggers.

The PC spent a good chunk of has day, today,  with two of them.

The PC is legally prohibited from discussing his day,

Suffice to say that The PC spent some time, today, in the "Total Perspective Vortex."

Bringing us full circle to some of last weekend's posts.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy has this to say about the "Total Perspective Vortex..."

"The most horrifying form of torture/punishment in the known Universe. The Total Perspective Vortex (it's so mind bogglingly terrifying it even gets Capital Letters) is a small, featureless steel box, barely big enough for one man to stand in.

The hopeless victims stand in the Vortex, and are suddenly shown, for the merest instant, the whole of the Universe: the whole infinity of creation, spanning over several trillion light years, and countless millennia, with an insignificant dot saying "You Are Here".

The victims, totally demoralised by their experience, fall dead from the vortex, wherupon they become the burden of the Vortex' custodian, Pizpot Gargravarr."
The PC managed to emerge from the TPV without "fall[ing] dead." But, he did come out of it experiencing a simultaneous clarity and disorientation, perspective-wise.

After much research, The Blog has determined that the only antidote to this effect is to spend the next hour sipping a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster...
" having your brains smashed out by a slice of lemon wrapped round a large gold brick..."
 ... followed by a good night's sleep.

See you tomorrow.

There will be a quiz.
