We should always be afraid of any government monitoring us. The fact that no one cares what we're talking about is an argument for keeping it that way. We don't want the government to be able to care. Any power you give the government, the government will abuse. George Washington almost said that."

Socks are only physically small. By stitch count, they are immense."

You know, like the world is moving all around you, all beneath you, all inside you, and you're floating. Floating in midair.

They're connected to yours by some invisible physical force, and they hold you fast while the rest of the world swirls and twirls and falls completely away."
