Happiness and Contentment
MacHacker Eyejelly built a castle on the bank of a creek. She placed every brick by hand. It took her ten years. She occasionally had help from friends, but mostly she did it alone, on weekends and evenings after work. When she finished her castle she quit her job and moved in. No one saw her much after that. MacHacker spent her days eating and waiting for the aliens. She believed castles were the most rational form of housing ever invented. When the aliens came, they would look for people in castles. MacHacker held on to this belief for decades.
