Strange Platypus(es) Part VI


"There is a thought that stops all thought."
-G. K. Chesterton

I found my own generation marked by a pronounced skepticism. Now that I am teaching, I find that in my students skepticism has run its course: they have become skeptical of skepticism. All that remains in apathy. It's as if we're burning out with each new generation until there's nothing left: ashes to be ground under foot by a coming world that has more fire in its belly.

Platypus Rain

Rain, Rain, Rain, we love rain!
Splash, splash, splash!
Fun, fun, fun!

-Invader Zim

More substantive thoughts to follow.
Now I must go out and drive in it.
