    It took me 25 hours to drive from Montana to Illinois. Not small enough.

    Everything is. It's just all there, not doing anything but dying. You think you're doing stuff, but you aren't. We're all going to the same place and we're gonna get there no matter what we do. Oh, this guy makes a million bucks a year and this guy here is starving. It's ok, you'll both be equally relieved of that. This guy touches kids' heinie holes and this guy volunteers driving old people to the store and doctor's appointments. Yup, you both get the same thing.

    Love, happiness, pain, pleasure, importance, good, bad, intelligence, thoughts, feelings, wealth. It's all a charade we put on to keep us from admitting to ourselves life is an illusion. We're the ants on the ground. We're born, we do some stuff, we die, more ants.
    Have a nice night everyone! :sun:

    Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the Western Spiral arm of the Galaxy lies a small unregarded yellow sun.

    Orbiting this at a distance of roughly ninety-eight million miles is an utterly insignificant little blue-green planet whose ape-descended life forms are so amazingly primitive that they still think digital watches are a pretty neat idea.

    This planet has—or rather had—a problem, which was this: most of the people on it were unhappy for pretty much of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movements of small green pieces of paper, which is odd because on the whole it wasn't the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy.

    And so the problem remained; lots of the people were mean, and most of them were miserable, even the ones with digital watches.

    Many were increasingly of the opinion that they'd all made a big mistake in coming down from the trees in the first place. And some said that even the trees had been a bad move, and that no one should ever have left the oceans.

    When I was in HS, I started spinning my Highway to Hell record backwards and heard "Christ knows my name".

    You probably wouldn't have guessed it, but that's not something I hear a lot. Unless I overhear it being said to someone else.
