In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move.
I’m not trying to espouse nihilism or trivialise recent events (especially in conjunction with my previous HHGTTG post) — I’m well aware I have a penchant for describing current (any?) events and people’s actions through the medium of xkcd or HHGTTG — some of the sights over the past five nights have been profoundly distressing and frustrating (as has some of the reporting).
It seems like it’s not possible for anyone to articulate how they feel about the recent riots, and what it means for society at large, without going all Daily Mail (which appears to be fairly standard practice across a number of social media platforms of late).
