Terrible dates! Terrible moments in history! Combined at last!
Arthur Ecks is indebted, over-degreed, and over-paying for everything in New York City. In a fit of youthful confusion, he decides to "use" his degree to create a great chronicle which will list not only his terrible dates with potential lovers but align them to equally horrible moments in human history. Dates Worse Than Fate tells the story of sour Arthur, beleaguered student, worse employee, wrapped up in self-fascination, shaded under the umbrella of his own ego, marching always backwards, from present to past.
