1: what do you feel?

2: i feel i’m surrounded by idiots. do you?

1: nope. no, i don’t.

2: then you must be an idiot.



I stared in astonishment as the printer churned out sheet after sheet of new data.

The numbers didn’t just exist on those pages, they described a world. A world similar to ours yet so alien, so near yet just out of reach.



1: What would you do if you found someone stuck at the bottom a well?

2: A well? Like… water, from that place, well?

1: Yes, well.

2: Uhm… ask him if he needs help?

1: Do you think he might just be hanging out at the bottom of a well, then?

2: Araknow! People are weird like that?

1: Fine. But let’s say you do the normal thing and help him out. Makes sense?

2: Uh-huh.

1: When a person commits a mistake it’s the same as having fallen into a well. So what do we do for that person?

“now honestly if it wasn’t any one of them, we’d probably do the same but it won’t come as effortlessly. and really, before we met them, we didn’t care for their kind. might have hated them. but now we have respect. we met them and we learnt and we understood so now there’s respect, at least that.

“that’s community. we stand by each other and give and take. you don’t know what they’ve given and given up for us, and i don’t know what perspective you’re speaking from, but your words are poison. it’s when people say callous and unintelligent things like that that trouble brews. don’t talk like that again. you hear?”



I have a strange disease,
Which lets me rhyme with ease.
I like it not so please,
I hope you will not tease.
