The world is changing at a rate that's accelerating, right? I'm not just imagining it. I think we need to build a machine that will dissipate cognitive dissonance. Or teach techniques for cultivating cognitive assonance. Speaking of which, who the hell gave America control over normativity? Can we ask for it back? I don't suppose we can. Bollocks. [Brit. slang. An expression of mild dismay in this instance.] If we're not careful we're going to come off sounding anachronistic.
