32. "I don't think the people today who start hearing voices, stop eating and sleeping, and run amuck are likely to get good treatment.

It's all because of entropy increasing."

They cycled and they ate in health-food restaurants like Cranks or Ceres, their cussedness aimed at appeasing the Earth Goddess herself. They almost fucking overdosed on grated carrot; while sipping fucking prune juice. They invented being environmentally-conscious, with their vegetable-buying co-operatives which gave them an excuse to put gumboots on in town."
