#256 – Darwin

I was thinking recently how back when I was 9 years old, a friend and I would climb up on the roof of his 3-story house just to hang out. Once we were at the very top it wasn’t that big of a deal but in retrospect the various railings and gutters involved in making it to that point was ridiculous. We never used a ladder because if one of his parents came home unexpectedly we wouldn’t have time to hide it. Climbing down to the lower roof and jumping onto the garage was a much quicker escape.

      So many to choose from! For me, it’s usually the ones where the mook is given ample warning, usually by someone who actually may have the knowledge and sense, and it happens anyway.

    Once there was link on Fark where the submitted headline was “Lord, don’t let me die in a way that gets me on FARK.” That’s a right bit of philosophy we all need to keep in mind.
