Bits and Pieces.

* The reason they’re building all these crazy things in Dubai has to be because they can’t drink or get their jollies off in some other way. So they build all of these bizarre things. In an attempt to compensate for something. Huge towers and spires and artificial islands and spaceports. But you know what? If it’s between going to space and vagina, vagina still wins. Hands down.

* What’s really messed up about these school shootings is that an alarming amount of them seem to be taking place in the morning. Who the hell has the amount of energy to pull something like this off in the morning? Especially as a teenager. No, murder feels more like an afternoon or evening activity.

* Why is it that when someone dies during a race in motorsport they don’t wave the checkered flag at half mast?

* What if time disappeared and everything happened at once?

* If you ever start whispering to someone they’re always forced to whisper back. Go ahead and try it.

* Just what is a ‘walk in shower’? How did people get in before someone invented this apparently amazing new thing? Some elaborate pully system? A poorly constructed ladder? A small tunnel? How about we think through what an expression or word actually tells us before we use them.

* I once thought my eyes were open. It turned out I was just asleep under a really bright lamp.

* Writing academically about film is like trying to herd cats using nothing but the medium of interpretive dance.

* Dogs are the whores of nature. That’s just science.
