It's a Japanese panda clutching onto a policeman's leg in terror following last week's earthquake. I saw this, and was suddenly and overwhelmingly consumed by grief, and said to myself, "FUCK THIS ["this" being life]. I am so fucking sick of everything!"
Then I saw something that turned everything around for me again. Watch the glass door.

You are a cruel and unusual internet, Internet. But I think I'll keep you around.
