when I see someone posting a reaction to the relentless consistent timing of pain on a daily basis. Reflects the agony like in the Greek myth of Prometheus, the god of compassion. He was the one who saw man shivering with cold on Earth and gave him fire. The Greek gods were so enraged he would give man something of the gods, he was ordered tortured, since he was a god and could not die. He was tied to a rock on a mountain and everyday an eagle would come and eat his liver from him and other innurds. Again, being a god, he would not die and they would grow back through the night. The eagle would repeat the ritual every day, and every day his pain was relentless. Well, I think it was Heracles who freed him many years later. Seem familiar.
Another comparison you bring to mind is Picasso's painting Guernica, showing the helpless agony of the people of that town while it was being relentlessly bombed.
So Ted, you said more than just any bitching. Too bad Heracles is only available in myth form.
