Crikey! Been checking out the news from around the world lately.. I reckon the best bet is to stay firmly where I am, locked safely away in my own little world. It's quiet, it's green and there are no earthquakes, radiation leaks, tsunamis or popular uprisings (apart from the dog trying to raid the larder damn him) and hardly any idiots, despots or loony celebs.
The workplace is 2 miles away and that's as far as I'm bloody going for a while. Now watch, on my way to work today I'll be irradiated and fall into a crack in the ground full of water while being assaulted by an idiot loony celeb fighting for the republican army...
Me and my big mouth, eh?
