So. 2017, eh. What can we say about that? In 2017, the planet turned, creating the illusion of days. In 2017, you have so far endured 355 of these solar deceptions. You will travel 26 million kilometres through space, and then, 2017 will exist only in your memory. Unless you are a quantum-y type.

If you are, please tell me if, and how, multiple 2017s might exist. Then, reassure me there’s a 2017 in which I do not find Apple Inc. celestially irritating. A 2017 in which no single company can come to have such heft, it can demolish a building currently used by the Koorie Heritage Trust, an organisation that supports Aboriginal culture.
