In the immortal words of REM's Michael Stipe, "Everybody hurts sometimes."
It's no secret that everyone suffers. And it's also no secret that we all wonder WHY?! Yep, in all caps. Because suffering seems totally unfair, doesn't it?
We weren't the first people to ask these tough questions, either. The Ancient Greeks were totally on top of it. And in order to answer the question of suffering, they did what they do best: they came up with a story. And that, folks, is where Prometheus and Pandora come in.
This story might not satisfy your desire for answers, but it'll at least let you know that you're not the only one who wants 'em.
