If I ever did stumble on any truth, I was gonna sit on it and keep it down."
Author: Bob Dylan

For there is risk in raising it, perhaps there is no greater risk."

Poisons you...And it has black spots on his back, and a head like a coq, and half goes erect over the terra, and half on the terra like the other serpents. And it kills the bellula...''The bellula?''Oc! Parvissimum animal, just a bit plus longue than the rat, and also called the musk-rat. And so the serpe and the botta. And when they bite it, the bellula runs to the fenicula or to the cicerbita and chews it, and comes back to the battaglia. And they say it generates through the oculi, but most say they are wrong.'I asked him what he was doing with a basilisk and he said that was his business."
