  1. Watch out, lest the genie of the shampoo bottle ends up washed up as a bathtub djinn.

  2. Some day, up here in the North Country, we will start calling surgical masks “COVID mufflers” because they do keep a face warm when dashing from car to door and door to car when it’s -20 windchill.

  3. A Guns N Roses parody about Back To The Future built around the line “You’ve been rocking in… Doctor Brown’s home…”

  4. There’s nothing more arrogant than regret. As if you should’ve, as if you COULD’ve known to do different. You had the info you had & you acted or didn’t. We’re all just dandelion seeds floating on causality’s breeze. Don’t make yourself feel worse trying to feel in control.

  5. All our children’s movies were about “don’t get trapped in despair!” “don’t get trapped in a lack of imagination!” “don’t let them make you old!” but we ended up in the oldest trap of all, frozen in our own nostalgia, of all those movies telling us to worry about other things.

  6. No one ever tells you that when you’re on a low carb diet, sometimes you’ll see a canister of corn meal and think “the happiest I could ever be would be if I just shoveled this starch powder into my mouth until I died, sated”.

  7. I guess I just wonder what the sequel ANGRY ANGRY HIPPOS would’ve been like.

  8. I’m not saying that I’m rooting for it to go down like this but, hey, future historians, if you need a pithy term for this hinge in causality, there are worse phrases than “The Beginning of The Silicon Age Collapse”.
