    ★★★

    1971: Phillip K Dick is living in Santa Venetia, CA, having just become divorced for a third time and struggling with writer’s block. He is paid a visit by his fiend, vacuum cleaner salesman Rastus Brown, and shares with him that he recently received a small package, with no return address, containing a capsule of unknown pills, and a letter saying they’re a gift from a fan of his work and they allow travel through time.

    INT. BILLY’S ROOM 

    Billy sadly sits on his bed.

    Billy: Boy, It sure is hard being the new kid in town, especially when you’re a geek like me. Man, if only I had a friend I’m sure things wouldn’t be so tough...

    Super Size Me

    Me: he ate only McDonalds for a month and got unhealthy and sick? Everyone knows that’s what would happen, what’s the point of this?

    Everyone in 2005: No, no, you don’t understand it’s about more than that.

    Everyone in 2020: Yeah I guess it was pretty pointless wasn’t it?
