If all roads lead to Rome, then how did the Romans ever get anywhere? This must have pissed them off if they started out heading for Athens and they ended up back in Rome and the imponderabilia of this situation which was always a vicious circle would boggle anyone. I will just let that thought bake in your brain for a while I relate my dream from last night to you about this large brain that I met in the woods. The brain had no voice, but we were able to communicate through telepathy. The brain scarred me with twisted tales and torture devices and I was ready to say bye, bye birdie to the brain, when I heard the wind chime ring out and I realized that we were not alone. I heard laughter and I did a search for the sound which began to scintillate my ears.
The brain started to mirror everything that I was doing and all I could think about was finding an axe and splitting it into two hemispheres. I don’t normally subscribe to violence, but I knew that I was dreaming and I began to think of the brain as being nothing more than an unnecessary big empty text box that should be deleted, because it was just taking up space in my dream. It became vital that I beat this brain at his own game. The game was on like Donkey Kong and we were going to tangle, as I was going to test his metal and then rub his nose in it. I had to maintain my poise and refrain from being shy, so I could destroy the brain and not leave any traces behind. This was not the time to be negligent, but all I had was a beach towel and some paper and as daylight was running out, I needed a plan. No matter how many winters had to pass, I needed to save the human race from this giant brain bug and I remembered that in Starship Troopers, that the brain was more afraid of us than we were of it.
