"the universe clearly operates for the benefit of humanity. This can be readily seen from the convenient way the sun comes up in the morning, when people are ready to start the day."


A thesis on the place of belief in a modern society and how this belief can be influenced adversely through baby teeth. Yet positively by the reinforcement of classic iconography used by a skeleton in a red suit with a false beard and a pillow stuffed down the front.

Quotes Niall Liked

Terry Pratchett
