Today in the tube, ignoring the morning rush, a young woman properly dressed was laying on the main stairway in a posture of meditation. Her eyes were closed but here face looked serene. Commuters had to go round her to get to the platform and that didn't trouble her. There must be a reason for that. Somewhere on the wall of the station, someone wrote "Black mask, white power", obviously referring to the US elections. There must be a reason for that. Later in the street, I totally ignored a Rumanian beggar who held a little boy on her knes. There must be a reason for that. Jennifer Aniston left her current boyfriend and thinks about getting back with John Mayer. There must be a reason for that. Young Mary cried in her room when she heard the news. There must be a reason for that.

The Arctic Monkeys sold 363,735 albums in one week thanks to a three-chord single published on the web. In the meantime, Lambchop frontman Kurt Wagner, praised for his subtle songwriting and his musical diversity, has just started making money with it, after putting down parquet floors for 10 years to earn his living. There must be a reason for that.
Holywood legends Errol Flyn, Clark Gable, Rock Hudson and Cary Grant were all living archetypes of virility at the time and kissed so many girls on screen you couldn't count them all. And yet they were all gays. For homosexuality-related Broke Back Mountain, on the other hand, producers chose to cast two heterosexual actors. There must be a reason for that.

Self-professed socialist Ségolène Royal lead her side to defeat in 2007 against a opponent who was under huge media fire and symbolized for many Jacques Chirac's disastrous second mandate. Yet her political motion was recently chosen by left-wing activists and she now stands first in line for the next campaign, which she's certain to lose again. There must be a reason for that.

People get drunk on friday night, **** random people without condom, wake up the next day with headache, Gonorrhea and vomit on their shirt and say "never again" to their flatmate. Yet they do it again the following week. There must be a reason for that. Britons do the same but don't even pretend to regret anything. They just can't wait for the next week-end to come. There must be a reason for that.

Concert organizers and state officials know about the dangers of overloud music. But they let retarded DJ's killing reckless teenagers night after night with tinnitus and endless ear whistles. There must be a reason for that. People are not allowed say "****" on TV but they can show their ass on the stage and ruin other people's reputation. There must be a reason for that.

Paul told Stephanie one day he couldn't stand Sophie. Two months later he dumped the former and married the latter. There must be a reason for that. Jenny knows she shouldn't take the car drunk but then she goes and then she dies. There must be a reason for that. Jamie told his friends from West Ham it was pointless to fight every week-end with the chaves from East Ham. One morning her mother found him dead on the street. There must be a reason for that.

This could go on forever. But in the end, people will just say that people are people, and they need no reason for that.

Today I started reading a long winded, boring as hell post, then skipped the rest of the foolishness and just posted a reply, must be a reason for that as well.

I think all of you guys could raise a whole army of smiley posting writers and that wouldn't change anything. The mutual comfort you give to eachother by bashing everything that doesn't sound like "How to waterize gardens in summer without consuming too much water" is really moving.

And ones like yourself, who think they are posting deep thoughts but in reality are nothing more than attention seeking trolls, are as annoying as f-all.

By the way, there should be a space between 'each' and 'other' and 'waterize' is not a word.

Ya'all have a nice day, we're fresh out of troll food.
