The Null Device

From the Grauniad, 50 things we'll be glad to see the back of in 2002:
1 Fear of flying no longer simply meaning the fear you're about to die because of turbulence or the flaps making that awful schmeeee all-gone-wrong sound, as if that wasn't enough, but now encompassing the fear you're about to die because you're too close to the vortex from the plane in front, or some suicidal madman's about to fly you into the sea, or some thin-lipped fanatic's about to fly you into a major city landmark, or the bastard in front wants to blow off his own feet.
21 Pompous pronouncements which bear little examination. 'The world has changed forever.' No it hasn't. 'This has nothing to do with Islam.' Yes it does. 'Faith can defeat evil.' Actually, faith is part of the problem. 'I'm a fighter, not a quitter.' Bye bye now.
34 High-Rise Terminals: those ludicrous cod-Aussie upward inflections at the end of each sentence? Know what I mean? Want to stop it now, mate?
41 Corporations using images of mohicanned rebellious counter-cultural anti-materialists, to sell things.
46 Members of bands having precisely one personality trait each.
