“Darwin Award. That’s not a real award, it’s a joke. They give them to people who die doing something so stupid that it counts as a service to humanity.”
Gregg Dunnett, The Wave at Hanging Rock

“When I wake the next day, I don't know where I am. I have this weird feeling that something's not right, and then I remember that everything's not right, and I wish I was still asleep.”
