Ticket to the void

September 15, 2009

train voidThe picture here is from one of the many little bits of card that get thrown out at you when picking up pre-booked tickets from any ‘quick ticket’ machine in English train stations. What I find of absolute brilliance about this particular piece of card are the words ‘void’ daisy chained across the front in a gloriously bold font. As a philosopher-in-progress and someone who has used the railway system many times only to be faced with a multitude of blunders, mistakes and delays the ticket seemed to light up in my hand, a beacon of absurdity and sublimity. It probably even compelled me to start and name this blog, just so I could share the daftness with the world.
