“I will never be able to un-see what I beheld this morning. If I’m ever facing down Roy Batty on a future-noir rainy Los Angeles tenement rooftop and he tries to bust out his “I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe” speech, I will put up my hand, fix his stark blue gaze with my own, and teach him what it truly means to stand naked in awe and terror before the vast and unknowable depths of the universe.” Ars does Soylent, Day 3: Moderation leads to actual, for-real enjoyment | Ars Technica

Trying to sum this car up in a handful of paragraphs is like trying to write Teddy Roosevelt’s biography in the same lines. Good luck, champ. The dude rode a moose, and that’s not even what he’s famous for.

“We cleansed our beards of the mutton-grease,
We lay on the mats and were filled with peace,
And the talk slid north, and the talk slid south,
With the sliding puffs from the hookah-mouth.
Four things greater than all things are, —
Women and Horses and Power and War.”
Rudyard Kipling: The Ballad of the King’s Jest

  • Ben: best known for the improbable number of W's in her name

Olympic Fever: Catch It

  • Ben: swimming AND women's lechery
  • War2: there you go. Kind of a modern biathlon.

  • Ben: that's a thing we just talked about

  • War2: I'll put it with the others.

“The entirety of it provides Huson with a mise en scène that is known variously as “Pastor Cocaine” or “Comptroller of Jonestown.” The look suggests a glowering reproach directed not at unruly adolescents but rather at the repugnant iniquities of those Mather brothers, Cotton and Increase. It also suggests a long history of groped receptionists and several powdery lines of fucking primo white lady followed by sweaty prayers hollered into a cordless microphone. In closing, Jeff Huson might be going to hell but not before he sends you there.” Jeff Huson, Disapproving Pastor | NotGraphs Baseball

“The plane didn’t feature a first-class cabin, not that I would be in this particular section to begin with; rather, I just want to be surrounded by people who are more comfortable than I am. I like to see clear divisions in the class system, and when I’m battling for leg room with a mouth-breathing sea creature and a child who is freebasing pure cane sugar, I want to know that someone is drinking in the tranquility of the moment while a warm cloth wipes away the proletarian debris from their hands. With no first-class cabin, we all become the same; clones in the same carriage, with limited means to separate ourselves from the herd. Life is better when warm towels and leather seats are available rewards for our hard work or good fortune.” Baseball Prospectus | Prospects Will Break Your Heart: A Flight of Fancy
