Keep Walking

Stupid is as stupid does...

I had almost forgot about this appropriate quote from the X-Files until it just re-ran on the SciFi Channel tonight...
"Life is like a box of chocolates. A cheap, thoughtless, perfunctory gift that nobody ever asks for. Unreturnable -- because all you get back is another box of chocolates. You're stuck with this undefinable whipped-mint crap that you mindlessly wolf down when there's nothing else left to eat. Sure, once in a while, there's a peanut butter cup. An English toffee. But they're gone too fast, the taste is fleeting. So you end up with nothing but broken bits, filled with hardened jelly and teeth-shattering nuts. If you're desperate enough to eat those, all you've got left... is an empty box... filled with useless, brown paper wrappers."
So, is "Cigarette Smoking Man" from The X Files being pessimistic, or realistic? Is there much of a difference?

Today's song is Queens of the Stone Age - No One Knows.
