The Sharpest Lives are the Deadliest to Lead

Cassandra Rose... [the new diabolic]
16 August 1986
I love music beyond any reason, I'm an animal rights freak, I read a lot. My favorite writer is Chuck Palahniuk... see the quotes below. I like arguing, hate people, fear spiders. I have spent a great deal of my life getting injured by various sports, accidents and people. Beyond that... I'll let you know when I've got it figured out better.

"People had been working for so many years to make the world a safe, organized place. Nobody realized how boring it would become. With the whole world property-lined and speed-limited and zoned and taxed and regulated, with everyone tested and registered and addressed and recorded. Nobody had left much room for adventure, except maybe the kind you could buy. On a rollercoaster. At a movie. Still, it would always be that kind of faux excitement. You know the dinosaurs aren't going to eat the kids. The test audiences have outvoted any chance of even a major faux disaster. And because there's no possibility of real disaster, real risk, we're left with no chance of real salvation. Real elation. Real excitement. Joy. Discovery. Invention.
The laws that keep us safe, these same laws condemn us to boredom.
Without access to true chaos, we'll never have true peace.
Unless everything can get worse, it won't get any better."

"This is fish number six-hundred and forty-one in a lifetime of goldfish. My parents bought me the first one to teach me about loving and caring for another living breathing creature of God. Six hundred and forty fish later, the only thing I know is everything you love will die. The first time you met that someone special, you can count on them one day being dead and in the ground."
