If you ever find out about the Schwarzschild radius of institutional ennui I am afraid, it is too late for you. You have crossed it. There is no going back. You are doomed to a slow and increasingly tedious journey towards the boredom heat-death of the universe.

People on the other side — your friends, loved ones; people who look up to you; whose respect you may once have earned — will see you suspended, frozen, on that cosmic threshold, a look of tart antagonism wrapped across your face for the hereafter.

So, friend, pray you never come across the words “Schwarzschild radius of institutional ennui”.

Oh. Oh, dear. Well, that’s most unfortunate.

Hey Barry — we should probably try to fix this. It’s like flypaper.
