A prayer for times when all else fails:
'Protect me from knowing what I don't need to know.
Protect me from even knowing there are things to know that I don't know.
Protect me from knowing that I decided not to know about the things that I decided not to know about. Amen'
'Lord, Lord, Lord. Protect me from the consequences of the above prayer. Amen.' -- Douglas Adams
