Too many people fill their lives with same old cliches. They don't heed history, and don't plan for the future, making the same mistakes and paying the same price as their ancestors did.
Yet, one skill that they've got is the ability to fake it. You can identify a jerk when you see one, but you'll never tell a loser from his/her exterior.
Instead, you'll have to go to a second rate library somewhere, and grope around the yellowed paperbacks to find the story of a loser - something only a loser would do.
