Definitely doomed. :(

Brought back three memories:

1. Daughter of one of my friends, in her late teens, reading a kind of "Cosmo for adolescents" where it was explained how to "become a sex bomb" (sic, but in French in the text). This from already ~ 20 years ago.

2. 20 more years back (!), another of my friends shaking her head about her younger brother – then in his early twenties, I think – obsessed with investment & career plans, and even retirement.

3. My present-day friends in the 30 – 40 range have similar gripes about the (to them) "younger generations". And I myself overheard two young dudes in a pub concluding that "If you're not rich at thirty, you're a loser."

So we have the Houellebecquian triad: power, money, and sex.

:mrgreen:

But in a Houellebecquian universe nobody actually enjoys it. :BigGrin3:

Well, as so often, the Master has a house in Ireland (less taxes) overlooking some river, and I'm sure it's a nice house. :)

He also dabbles in photography, I've learned. (French article with some examples: https://www.nouvelobs.com/photo/20141105.OBS4163/photos-houellebecq-expose-et-ses-cliches-depassent-sa-fiction.html)
