Cueball's arch! she destroyed it! (finally caught up after coma-ing and leaving the house. the reckoning made everything so confusing... I like the quotes-only version, though)
P.S. I am not Randall. I am an initiate of Time. All is measured by the passage of the Newpix.

Maybe this is representative of the schism of our religion. If we do not work together, surely all we endeavor to build will be destroyed.

1) Only in quotes and signatures (except a few specific phrases). Mostly just people talking like that.
2) The consensus is that it's a trebuchet

My part of the consensus: they're a lot of fun. I'm going to have to get ours out of the shed after work. A small one like Megan has is easy to make, and fun to take on picnics.

I truly dream of a united religion, if we don't stand strong and united against the madness we may break apart, and the rambling would only increase, thus losing sight of what is truly important, we wait for IT.
