Fighting it isn't always easy, sweeping generalizations seems sort of automatic, sometimes it would be easier to just surrender to them. But they're ugly and stupid, and that helps me to fight.

I went shopping earlier today and I took my car as the shop I went to was in a different town. When I got there, I went into the multi story car park, got out the car and went shopping.
