About

I am a bitter, misanthropic person who isn’t actually called John. Ignoring the world until it went away didn’t seem to be working out, so I’m trying a new tack here: an attempt at catharsis from ranting away on my own little corner of the internet. I don’t imagine that many people want to hear me complain about the day’s trivialities, but then I wouldn’t have expected people to bother with a lot of the other detritus that fills the internet, and I was evidently wrong about that.

If you want to get in touch, my email address is John at this domain. If you send me something stupid, threatening, and/or insulting I will probably post it here and mock you.

If, for whatever reason, you would like to see your own complaints posted to a page where they could receive literally tens of views, email them to me. If I don’t think you sound like an idiot, they can have their very own post here, to exist in perpetual obscurity.

The Name

Being a beautiful and unique snowflake, I chose to show my individuality by naming the site based on a slightly oblique reference to The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Specifically, to the quotation:

“It seemed to me, that any civilisation that had so far lost its head as to need to include a set of detailed instructions for use in a packet of toothpicks, was no longer a civilisation in which I could live and stay sane.”

And it’s a .org domain because there aren’t any .com names left.

The Mistakes

As someone who has made a site specifically to voice my disdain for the population at large, people appear to gain great satisfaction from pointing out my mistakes. I can’t imagine why. Yes, I make them. Yes, it makes me look like an idiot. No, I’m not going to lose any sleep over it.
