The world is full of pointless things. From rail replacement bus services to chip forks. From war to windchimes. From people who put cushions on beds to people who read the bit they write about the book on amazon.
Look around you right now. See how many pointless things there are in just this one shop (or this one school playground if you've picked this up at a car boot fair).. Just about the only thing that isn't pointless is you. You look amazing.
