We refuse to see the world as it is, as Douglas Adams's  immortal words (though in person having proved himself to be quite mortal) go - the one thing sentient life cannot afford to have is a sense of proportion. In my earlier blog about the goggles of selective blindness that I myself wear when I go nostalgic.
The following screenies are from a Simpsons episode - a series of which I am a great fan. After losing his job at the bowling alley, Homer goes back to work at the Nucular power plant. Mr Burns decides to hire him back and give him plague. Smithers corrects him saying that A plaque, sir. A demotivational plaque.

The episode then moves into why they don't have any baby pictures of Maggie. After fifteen odd minutes and concluding the story, Lisa asks So why aren't there any pictures of Maggie here ?. Homer says Oh, I keep them where I need them the most.
Do it for money, do it for luck or do it for love - Just do it.--
If you have nothing to do, don't do it here.
