Marvin = _____

How often is it that we have tried to associate a fictional character with someone we know? Authors themselves base characters and events on people, places and events that they know of or heard of, like Harry Potter named after J.K.Rowling's childhood friends. Here is a small list of characteristics.
  • Paranoid
  • Depressive
  • "I hate the world" attitude
  • "For god's sake leave me alone" attitude
  • Continually whines about his troubles.
  • I have a brain the size of a planet and it gives me a headche to think at your level!!

There are clearly the traits of Marvin, the Paranoid Android from the literary world. From the real world there is this one person, the paranoid homo sapien......( whom I prefer not to name on public domain), a 100% match. But Ishwar would agree with me.

Hey Ishwar! Come lets get some vodka.

Reminds me of Blabber-Ash Ashwini being identified as "Gollum"

Basically, Marvin was the super set
of all the "HUMANS" who have a bit
grey matter and too much time on their hands...or basically everyone
we know...:)
