Be patient. Try alternating between steady strokes and occasional monster heaves. (re: toilet clogging) (Ok fine, it was a link he forwarded to me.)

14yo Cousin from Ohio: Can I googlemaps your apartment?
Me: Sure, it's [address].
Cousin: Is your street busy?

This is the second time a woman has stopped me in the street and said I have a ‘very strong aura’. I think it’s because I actively scowl on the street when I get troubled.

Talking to a physics PhD
Colin: i bet you didn't know this. so we all know that the exclamation point after a number has a specific meaning: factorial. it turns out that two exclamation points has a different, albeit related meaning
and in general the number of exclamation points has a definition
Colin: for example 6! is 6*5*4*3*2*1
6!! is 6*4*2
6!!! is 6*3
so bizarrely enough more exclamation points means smaller value
Colin: so this just goes to show mathematically how more exclamation points just devalues your excitement
Colin: i just explained this proof to my german post-doc
and he said to truly amplify your excitement you should write (((6)!)!)!
which is absolutely right
i bet you are glad you know someone like me
me: can i post this all to my blog?
Colin: i demand it

Only for me, the long perspective of shades that set off one box from the next day had suddenly snapped up, and I could see day after day after day glaring ahead of me like a white, broad, infinitely desolate avenue.”
