So it goes.

Thanks to Rick, who is quite fluent in Tralfamadorian.

Quote of the Day:

-- "Welcome aboard, Mr. Pilgrim," said the loudspeaker. "Any questions?"
-- Billy licked his lip, thought a while, inquired at last: "Why me?"
-- "That is a very Earthling question to ask, Mr. Pilgrim. Why you? Why us for that matter? Why anything? Because this moment simply is. Have you ever seen bugs trapped in amber?"
-- "Yes." Billy, in fact, had a paperweight in his office which was a blob of polished amber with three lady-bugs embedded in it.
-- "Well, here we are, Mr. Pilgrim, trapped in the amber of this moment. There is no why."

~ Kurt Vonnegut, Slaughter-house Five

Truly a poor-thought designed, at least on the exterior.

It's not the depth of the rabbit hole that bugs me...
It's all the rabbit SH*T you stumble over on your way down!!!

Nothing is more therapeutic than feeling like a barn animal ;)

To someone reading the quote I chose, it'll be pretty evident that I'm reading Slaughter-house Five right now.

The book is resonating so much with me it's almost scary. In one part the book mentions how according to some science fiction novelist certain mental illnesses cannot be cured by human doctors because they have their origin in the 4th dimension, which we cannot see.

I could almost affirm this is the case with depression.
