The Random Comic Strip

Words to live by...

"How beautiful it is to do nothing, and to rest afterward."

[Spanish Proverb]

Ius luxuriae publice datum est

(The right to looseness has been officially given)

"Everyone carries a part of society on his shoulders," wrote Ludwig von Mises, "no one is relieved of his share of responsibility by others. And no one can find a safe way for himself if society is sweeping towards destruction. Therefore everyone, in his own interest, must thrust himself vigorously into the intellectual battle."

Apparently, the crossword puzzle that disappeared from the blog, came back.

I wanna glide down, over Mulholland
I wanna write her, name in the sky
I wanna free fall, out into nothin'
Gonna leave this, world for awhile

And I'm free, free fallin'
Yeah I'm free, free fallin'

[Tom Petty]

There was a somewhat notable movie many years ago (1976) starring David Bowie.  It came to mind as I was reading about a man who literally fell to earth a few days ago.

As I watched the video, a weird thought entered what passes for my mind...

The Earth's, um, edge can be seen in its entirety from the height he jumped... I wonder if he wondered..."What if I miss?"
