I was having a shit day, so thank God I ran into this absolutely true news story that totally made me laugh:

India official dies after monkey attack

NEW DELHI - Wild monkeys attacked a senior government official who then fell from a balcony at his home and died Sunday, media reported.

I could handle the monsoons and the plague, but throw roving monkey street gangs in and I have every reason I need to never visit India, ever.

An optimist might point out that if the Indians can't even keep their leaders safe from killer monkeys, our failure in Iraq doesn't look quite as bad by comparison.
