Â I donâ€™t know if youâ€™ve noticed, but the worldâ€™s kinda sorta going to shit of late. We may have all kinds of fancy new developments on the way, like Amazon delivering to our homes via awesome effing drones and such, but I donâ€™t quite think that makes up for it. Â
Iâ€™ve often wondered why weâ€™re in the damn mess weâ€™re in just now. Did we do something freaking terrible in a past life, which doomed us to be repeatedly screwed over in this one? Why is Satan lurking in all our backyards, watching, devising daily diabolical torments for us all (your baby will wake you at 3am, fat guy, and youâ€™ll step on ten different legos on your way to the cribâ€¦ mwahaha)?
Donâ€™t bother asking our leaders what the hellâ€™s going on, because theyâ€™re all busy playing PokÃ©mon Go.
Now, I know what youâ€™re thinking. In all kinds of jobs, the admin/paperwork side is usually a big olâ€™ pain in the ass. Iâ€™ve never been Norwayâ€™s Prime Minister myself, funnily enough, but itâ€™s a safe bet that theyâ€™d get a fair amount of it. Erna Solberg is the countryâ€™s leading lady, and she was caught earlier this week in parliament catchinâ€™ â€˜em all.
Well, I say â€˜caught.â€™ Itâ€™s not like anyone was really assed. The speaker at the time, liberal party leader Trine Skei Grande, said, â€˜We ladies can do two things at the same time you know.â€™
That was it, really. All you Ego-dudes in relationships know thatâ€™s true. All this shows is that PokÃ©mon Go is still as huge as ever, and that Norwayâ€™s politicians are much cooler than those where I live in Merry Olde England.
