The Universe has been a real dick to my friends lately. It needs to back off.
My brother, who knows this about the Universe, sent me an email yesterday that I want you to see. But it requires some background. In order to appreciate this email, you might need to know that my brother and I were one year apart in high school and we shared a lot of things: a bathroom, friends, mountains of books.... In 1999-2000 we shared a Kurt Vonnegut phase. We were trying really, really hard to be intellectuals at the time, which was difficult because we were also very dumb. I remember that on our choir trip, we both stuffed our satchels full of books so we could read in the lines at Disneyland instead of talk to our friends like normal freaking teenagers. Or maybe that was just me.
Anyway, he sent me this quote from an A.V. Club article by Scott Gordon, Josh Modell, Noel Murray, Tasha Robinson, and Kyle Ryan:
