“There’s always a little truth behind every ‘just kidding’. A little knowledge behind every ‘I don’t know’. A little emotion behind every ‘I don’t care’. And a little pain behind every ‘it’s okay’.”

Alan is on page 74 of 366 of Kim: This is turning out to be quite an adventure. I'm really enjoying the witty banter between Kim and the lama. It's been over 100 years since this book was written, how can there not be a movie yet?!

“And as if blowing it up, flooding it, and keeping it behind the klyon wasn't enough, State Security special forces patrolled the area until 1989. Some locals say there was an additional 'live fence' of thousands of vipers specially bred for this purpose by Uzbeks along the southern Black Sea, under something called decree number 56. Why Uzbeks? Why vipers? Did decree 56 read: 'Let us fulfil the five-year snake plan in one year'?”
