What do the dumb people do?

Well, my standard four hours of sleep did not improve my mood. I remain gutted. I have decided to rant. It was supposed to be cathartic, but I think I might be getting angrier by the minute as I keep thinking of more things I need to include and very few of them make me feel better.
