This is the runt in the litter, the last straw to be drawn, no matter how bad things are, somewhere out there you know there is a tree you can piss on.

Interestingly most of think of ourselves as the "The Worlds' pissing tree" at one point or other in our lives, but I like to think of people who live in places where a mountain of garbage can spontaneously catch fire and fall on you and destroy your home because you are living in a country racked by corruption and human rights abuses and you are really left out on the rubbish heap and have to sell your daughters and stuff, and then i think the very fact that I have any Internet access, a desk, even a bit of plastic that does something useful makes me incredibly privileged and I don't feel so bad after all.
