I fucking love Super Hans. The bit where he gets stuck in the bathroom and decides to kick down the door kills me every time. I don’t even know why. I just put it on repeat and laugh like the idiot that I am.
Uncontrollably smitten by his overpowering gaze… I caved.
it ain’t what you don’t know that gets you into trouble… it’s what you know for sure that just ain’t so
"The purpose of poetry is to remind us
how difficult it is to remain just one person,
for our house is open, there are no keys in the doors,
and invisible guests come in and out at will."
"I am not here to ruin you.
I am already in you."
from Sarah Manguso, “Oblivion Speaks”
it is obvious that we can no more explain a passion to a person who has never experienced it than we can explain light to the blind

"we’re born alone, we live alone, we die alone - only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we’re not alone"
"young love is a flame; very pretty, often very hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering… the love of the older and disciplined heart is as coals, deep-burning, unquenchable"

Tesla vs. Edison Debate Ignites at SxSW
Paleofuture blogger Matt Novak’s South by Southwest March 11 talk on the Edison versus Tesla debate and myth of the lone inventor went electric when web comic artist Matthew Inman of The Oatmeal, whose Tesla comic spurred the debate, showed up to defend his work.
“The goal with my comic wasn’t to write nonfiction, it was more to paint a portrait of Tesla’s character and why I admire that and why I admire geeks in general,”* Inman said when he emerged from the audience to ask a question at the end of the session.
Novak had taken issue with Inman’s viral comic “Why Nikola Tesla was the greatest geek who ever lived” comic, saying that it fed the “Great Man Theory of History” and the myth of the lone inventor.
