“Our idea is to avoid interference with things we don’t understand. Well, some
people are prone to the opposite. The fragilista belongs to that category of
persons who are usually in suit and tie, often on Fridays; he faces your jokes
with icy solemnity, and tends to develop back problems early in life from sitting
at a desk, riding airplanes, and studying newspapers. He is often involved in a
strange ritual, something commonly called “a meeting.” Now, in addition to
these traits, he defaults to thinking that what he doesn’t see is not there, or what
he does not understand does not exist. At the core, he tends to mistake the
unknown for the nonexistent.”
