The End Is Near These are the last days. Serotonin uptake is at an all-time high. And the end is near. Can you imagine your life without grocery stores? And the end is here. Breaking News: architect of dangerous narratives. Climate change is here. We were the medicine that attacked the earth’s lungs. All the pain ends here. Opioid of the masses. Do no harm. Hardly. Stay inside your home. Social distancing in the age of viral vids. Wear a mask in case of: germs, tear gas, the impulse to shop or riot. The solution’s clear: Did you try turning it off and back on again? Peak oil is here. The mannequin party gets crashed by test dummies.
