I spent most of yesterday trying to ignore the U.S. election for a day, by staying off the internet, reducing my exposure to CNN to three minutes at the most etc etc.
So I might have a fighting chance of making it to next Tuesday, without going crazy.
But sadly it just didn't work. Not when Donald Trump's zombies are within striking distance of the presidency, and most of the world is holding its breath...or whatever.
Naturally, the rest of the human race is on the edge of its seat right now. Pop a weather balloon over the Western hemisphere and half the world will pee itself. Small island nations will be flooded.
And not when for a moment I thought that somebody had tried to kill Trump.
But while I was greatly relieved to discover that he had only been running from a guy with a Republicans Against Trump sign.
The man whose protest saw Donald Trump rushed off the stage by Secret Service agents has said the Republican nominee’s supporters turned on him when he held up a sign reading: “Republicans against Trump”,
The 33-year-old – who says he has been a registered Republican for about six years – said he was kicked, punched and choked, and feared for his life when the crowd turned on him at the gathering in Reno, Nevada.
That big old orange chicken.
What I found deeply disturbing was to see how those violent Trump zombies were trying to claim that it's the left that is violent... .
Like former Republican congressman Joe Walsh was trying to do yesterday.
Only ten days after he tweeted this...
Which can only add to the atmosphere of violence, and makes it even more obvious that those Trumplings are not just crazy, they're dangerous.
Donald Trump's legions of followers say they're growing confident of victory -- and many say they won't accept defeat. "We're going to win.
And if we don't win and Hillary wins, I think we're going to take over the government," said Nancy Fraize, 51, who works as a cleaning lady in Manchester, New Hampshire. "I think personally we'll all be at the White House sitting on the front lawn. In arms."
But despite all of that, what alarmed me the most about that fake security scare in Reno is that the time to knock some sense into Donald Trump came and went along time ago.

And while I too could watch that for hours, I don't want to see Trump hurt. I want to see him humiliated.
And that's exactly what might happen. He could be humiliated by the people he first attacked, the Latinos of America.
Hispanic voters in key states surged to cast their ballots in the final days of early voting this weekend, a demonstration of political power that lifted Hillary Clinton’s presidential hopes and threatened to block Donald J. Trump’s path to the White House.
“The story of this election may be the mobilization of the Hispanic vote,” said Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, an anti-Trump Republican who has pleaded with his party to do more to win over Latinos. “So Trump deserves the award for Hispanic turnout. He did more to get them out than any Democrat has ever done.”
And wouldn't that be poetic justice?
And the even better news? Trump's zombie surge has energized the Democrats like nothing else could.
The mighty Clinton machine is making its presence felt all over the U.S., with almost a million volunteers now knocking on doors and working to get out the vote.
Bernie Sanders is doing his part to remind his young followers what's at stake.
And videos like this one are blanketing the airwaves...
For respect.— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) November 5, 2016
For the future.
For our planet.
On Tuesday, they're gonna hear us roar: https://t.co/3TKJ4HnJC7 pic.twitter.com/3G9XwUq6Mb
The good people of America are rising.
On Tuesday the whole world will hear them roar.
And with a little bit of luck the monstrous Trump zombie will sniffle and hiss.
But will be defeated, and humiliated.
And threaten us no more...
