People, yet again.

Jean-Paul Sartre was rather a genius, I must say. Such a concise and beautiful epiphany. Add a tinge of helplessness and a palpable feeling of awe, and you get the famous quote:

"Hell is - other people."

Think about it, see how right he was. And is.

Then take into account the fact that the Earth's population just keeps climbing.

Oh yeah.

You sense no irony on behalf of the playwright in that quote?

Yes, but none that changes its validity.

Dom inte bara ökar, dom lyckas även nästla in sig överallt - på internet, i fickan på mobilen, ständigt närvarande...

Well don't worry. Carrying capacity will soon be reached and the rate of the population will enter the plateau phase.

Jonatan - det är precis det jag menar! Hur jävla kul är det att gå omkring med sina tennistränare i tröjan hela tiden?

Anna - Carrying capacity is too far off. And humans will still find new ways to cramp themselves in. Reproduction is, after all, a very basic urge.

Those are some pretty big words for a slave to the kitchen.
