the end of history

Thanks to Mensch for sending this along.

This is the End of History - thousands of years of human civilization have led up to this one indelible endpoint, and now it's past. The purpose of the combined life-toil of the tens of billions of people who have walked this earth since the Dawn of Man has finally become clear.

Life will go on, I suppose, but now that humanity has officially entered its post-historical age, it is difficult to see a point to all of it. We've reached the peak of the mountain, and there's nowhere to go but down the other side.

my apologies to david wright and the baseball gods

Since I annointed him "The Chosen One" on this blog - 6-for-33, 0 HR, 1 RBI, 6 K.

I should have known better than to open my big mouth. The Baseball Gods were angered. My apologies, David. My apologies, Baseball Gods.
