I’m a bit swamped right now to come up with something interesting to say. Although, it tends to be with these Quantum Mechanics assignments that if I think about anything too long I start wandering off into philosophical terrority. Entertaining for me but it doesn’t really help my mark. At least, not until I get into some kind of Physics and Philosophy concurrent degree.

“There are no choices. Nothing but a straight line. The illusion comes afterwards, when you ask ‘why me?’ and ‘what if?’, when you look back and see the branches, like a pruned bonsai tree, or a forked lightning. If you had done something differently, it wouldn’t be you, it would be someone else looking back, asking a different set of questions.”
- from frvade, level 17

Go chew on that. Oh, and also this:

“And don’t underestimate the importance of body language. HA!”
- Ursula, the sea witch

That’s the stuff.
