Especially for kind people: a rant.

Look, if you send people envelopes inscribed 


THIS CONTAINS PICTURES OF TORTURE 
WHICH YOU MAY FIND 
DISTRESSING 

then what sort of person do you imagine is going to open them?

Word To Use Today: torture. This word comes from the Latin tortūra, a twisting, from torquēre, to twist.

PS I've had more or less to give up watching drama on TV, too.
