i feel cutler will be the best of the three. he has that cocky confidence, the fire burning in his belly. he has the stronger arm, he has mobility, he's fearless to make the big play, and he has a whatever-it-takes-type attitude.

pictured above is the resulting hole in the ceiling, while the inset image shows the wall dent and the meteorite itself. although the vast majority of meteors is much smaller and burn up in the earth's atmosphere, the average homeowner should expect to repair direct meteor damage every hundred million years.

einstein was a giant. his head was in the clouds, but his feet were on the ground. those of us who are not so tall have to choose!

I have a friend who is a giant,
And he lives where the tall weeds grow.
He’s high as a mountain and wide as a barn,
And I only come up to his toe, you know,
I only come up to his toe.

When the daylight grows dim I talk with him
Way down in the marshy sands,
And his ear is too far way to hear
But still he understands, he ‘stands,
I know he understands

For we have a code called the “scratch‑tap code,”
And here is what we do -
I scratch his toe ... once means, “Hello”
And twice means, “How are you?”
Three means, “Does it look like rain?”
Four times means, “Don’t cry.”
Five times means, “I’ll scratch you a joke.”
And six times means, “Goodbye,” “Goodbye,”
Six times means, “Goodbye.”

And he answers me by tapping his toe
Once means, “Hello, friend.”
Two taps means, “It’s very nice to feel your scratch again.”
Three taps means, “It’s lonely here
With my head in the top of the sky.”
Four taps means, “Today an eagle smiled as she flew by.”
Five taps means, “Oops, I just bumped my head against the moon.”
Six means, “Sigh” and seven means, “Bye”
And eight means, “Come back soon, soon, soon,”
Eight means, “Come back soon.’’

And then I scratch a thousand times,
And he taps with a bappity‑bimm,
And he laughs so hard he shakes the sky
That means I’m tickling him!

Attending there let us absorb the cultures of nations
And dissolve into our judgement all their codes.
Then, being clogged, with a natural hesitation
(People are continually asking one the way out),
Let us stand here and admit that we have no road.

but then they danced down the streets like dingledodies, and i shambled after as i've been doing all my life after people who interest me, because the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes 'awww!'"

Now as I was young and easy under the apple boughs
About the lilting house and happy as the grass was green,
The night above the dingle starry,
Time let me hail and climb
Golden in the heydays of his eyes,
And honoured among wagons I was prince of the apple towns
And once below a time I lordly had the trees and leaves
Trail with daisies and barley
Down the rivers of the windfall light.

~Dylan Thomas

Well, I’ve seen all there is to see
And I’ve heard all they have to say
I’ve done everything I wanted to do --
Yep, I’ve done that, too.

And it ain’t that pretty at all
Ain’t that pretty at all
So I’m gonna hurl myself against the wall
Cause I’d rather feel bad than not feel anything at all

I don't believe that life is supposed to make you feel good, or make you feel miserable either. Life is just supposed to make you feel.

Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who could not hear the music.

The world was moving around her. She blinked. The drums in her head were like thunder now, and there was one beat as deep as oceans. Miss Treason was forgotten. So was the strange, mysterious crowd. Now there was only the dance itself.

It twisted in the air like a living thing. But there was a space in it, moving around. It was where she should be, she knew it. Miss Treason had said no, but that had been a long time ago and how could Miss Treason understand? What could she know? When did she last dance? The dance was in Tiffany’s bones now, calling to her. Six dancers were not enough!

She ran forward and jumped into the dance.

The eyes of the dancing men glared at her as she skipped and danced between them, always being where they weren’t. The drums had her feet, and they went where the beat sent them.

And then……there was someone else there.

It was like the feeling of someone behind her—but it was also the feeling of someone in front of her, and beside her, and above her, and below her, all at once.

an escalator can never break: it can only become stairs. you would never see an escalator temporarily out of order sign, just escalator temporarily stairs - sorry for the convenience.
