I know what I feel...

Weltschmerz (from the German meaning world-pain or world-weariness) is a term coined by the German author Jean Paul and denotes the kind of feeling experienced by someone who understands that the physical reality can never satisfy the demands of the mind.

It is also used to denote the feeling of sadness when thinking about the evils of the world.

There. The bloody monster is tagged and bagged.

    Hey, you decided to kill the dog. Why give it a bad name?

    Unfortunately I have so far only been able to tag and bag it.

    Weltschmerz .. watch the grimace on your face when you say that in front of the mirror and you'll know why the name came about.

    A German author with a French-sounding name ... no wonder such a corny coinage ...

    Couldn't he have found something better, I wonder...???

    hmm.. interesting .. what term would you use instead of the W word?

    I'd choose "smeagol" coz it has the same grimace to it.
