George Carlin was right. People really are boring. The only times they even get interesting is when they are in distress or dying. Even then, somehow, most of them manage to find the most undignified way of dying.. and then proceed to do it. You're 80 and you can't control bowel movements anymore. In Earth years you have already expired but you cling to life in a desperate attempt to avoid the inevitable oblivion that awaits you.
Couldn't agree more. I'm a fan of Carlin and Hicks myself. That's why it's a rush to put people into distress with violence, physical or mental.
