An exercise in futility. When I think of exercise, I think of an activity that will eventually make me healthier, stronger or smarter. An exercise in futility is something that makes me better at something that has a negative outcome? An outcome that is already determined before I even begin the exercise? Calling it an exercise is kind of insulting. I don’t want to become better at having absolutely no effect on anything. What’s the point of that? That won’t even make eligible to become a question on Jeopardy.
I want to be a question on Jeopardy. I just have to figure out how to build a sandcastle with only sand.
