The renegades agreed to let Louis hang around, an offer he took to the extreme; once installed, Louis acted like an unemployed in-law, basically squatting with the Bushmen for the next four years...He learned to keep his campfire burning and tent zipped even on the most sweltering nights, since packs of hyenas were known to drag people from open shelters and tear out their throats.

Running was the superpower that made us human- which means it's a superpower all humans possess. (p. 239)"

And then GM Frank Lane traded Rocky Colavito to the Detroit Tigers and cursed everything."
