"Why do men cry? Because of fights and feats and marathon preferment, because they want their
mothers girls, because they are blind in time, because of all the hard-ons they have to whistle up out of the thin blue yonder, because of all that men have done. Because they can't be happy or sad any more -- only smashed or nuts. And because they don't know how to do it live when they're awake.
And then there is the in
formationsomnia, which comes at night".
Martin Amis, The Information
