It is certain, in any case, that ignorance, allied with power, is the most ferocious enemy justice can have.
I haven’t said much about the election here. I think this says what I would say. Truth is spoken.
Solving the following riddle will reveal the awful secret behind the universe, assuming you do not go utterly mad in the attempt. If you already happen to know the awful secret behind the universe, feel free to skip ahead.
Let’s say you have an ax. Just a cheap one, from Home Depot. On one bitter winter day, you use said ax to behead a man. Don’t worry, the man was already dead. Or maybe you should worry, because you’re the one who shot him.
From John Dies at the End by David Wong
Since my earliest childhood a barb of sorrow has lodged in my heart. As long as it stays I am ironic – if it is pulled out I shall die.
“It is awful to want to go away and to want to go nowhere.”
“Some of my most neurotically fierce bitterness is the result of realizing how untrue people have become.”
“If you shut up truth and bury it under the ground, it will but grow, and gather to itself such explosive power that the day it bursts through it will blow up everything in its way.”
I open one eye
And I put out my hand just to touch your soft hair
To make sure in the darkness that you were still there
And I have to admit I was just a little afraid
I had a little bit of luck you were awake I couldn’t take another moment alone
