I knew it! I'm doomed to die an early painful death! I'm
completely unsurprised by this -- in fact, I pretty much
expected that things would turn out this way. The Mayo
clinic has just released a report that pessimists die
younger. OK, it doesn't actually mention pain, but I'm sure
it'll be horrible.
It's actually a good thing that it's not the other way around -- those poor,
foolish optimists would never have been prepared for this kinda bad news. But
us pessimists are contently braced for the world to, yet again, screw us over.
Now I'm going to go sit in the dark and wait for death. It'll probably happen
real soon, probably just as things are starting to look a little brighter. It's
when you start to hope that everything goes wrong ya know.
