Using my blog to try and make the world a better place. If I can help someone forget their troubles for a few minutes a day, it's all worth it.

I watch the ripples change their size, but never leave the stream of warm impermanent sand. So the days flow through my eyes but still the days seem the same. And these children that you spit on as they try to change their world are immune to your consultations. They're quite aware of what they're going through.

True story:

While it's true I had the above lunchbox, this post isn't about that.
In the mid-70's, at the height of his career, Evel Kneivel planned a jump everyone knew he couldn't make. The landing strip was far too short for the length of jump he had to cross. But he had a packed audience, so he went ahead with it anyway. He made the jump, but when he landed, he couldn't stop in time, and crashed into a wall.
Broke every bone in his body.
As he was laying there, half-conscious because of the pain, his manager was kneeling beside him saying "Why, Evel??? Why didn't you just call it off??". And Evel looked up at him and said: "What, and give 'em their money back???"
I laughed my ass off when I heard that.
