And then a knot loosened

Isn’t it funny how life often turns out? I mean, we all know Murphy’s a right royal bastard, doing his damnedest to test us just a little more — pushing just a bit harder; loading just a bit more on our soul — and then, just as you decide you’ve now had enough, screw all of them, it all just dissipates like fog and Murphy packs up and goes looking for another victim.

In much the same vein, just as soon as you reach a point where you’re prepared to abandon all hope for humanity, you come across a tale like this.

Now I’m as aware as you that there are a lot more evil, corrupt and blighted people out there than good ones, but it is heartening to be reminded from time to time that not all the world is vile.
