No, it's the emotional impact of all the folks who look down at you if you don't take the far-fetched sketches seriously. On the one hand, you have religious end-timers and their imaginary sketches, and on the other, you have those who look down at you for denial of climate change, which just isn't quite so far-fetched. Take your pick and pay at the window. You still don't have to give a fuck, and then it's all free. Above and beyond that, losing hope doesn't necessarily kill you. It might rain on your parade. Waah!

Don't forget. Nukes are wielded by people who probably can't help but look down at you.
