The UK is populated by hordes of "overweight, alco-pop-swilling, sex-and-celebrity-obsessed television addicts," according to the travel book Rough Guide to England. I recommend, therefore, that you avoid traveling to that part of the world if you're a sensitive person who's susceptible to taking on the attitudes of the people around you. The astrological omens suggest that you should take stringent measures to exorcise any impulses you might have to indulge in excessive consumption of bad food, numbing intoxicants, superficial sex, dumbed-down entertainment, and mindless gossip about famous lightweights. For that matter, you should be ruthless in sealing yourself off from influences that tend to bring out the worst and the mediocre parts of you.

Aw, crap. I was so looking forward to the superficial sex part...

We are taught to respect people in positions of high authority. By whom are we taught this? Why, by people in positions of high authority, of course! No doubt the people who lack authority would like us to respect them, too - but sadly, they lack the authority to request this. Whether or not you know it, you are entering a position of authority now. You do not seem, though, to be getting the respect that ought to be concomitant with such status. All you really have to do, though, is ask for it.

You will respect my authoritai!
