G is for Garbage, what they are actually peddling.

H is for Huckster, what all of them are.

I is for Inane, what true believers are.

J is for Joke, what the rest of us think of them.

K is for Kill, Skynet likes this.

L is for Ludicrous, what they are claiming.

N is for Nope, what reality has to say.

O is for Orwellian, where it's all going.

P is for Prison, what the world will turn into.

Q is for Quack, not just for medicine.

S is for Suckers, what the people funding the startups are.

T is for Tattered, like their connection to reality.

U is for Unlikely, which is putting it kindly.

Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
--Zachris Topelius

Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.
