    Bah, I don’t buy it, maybe if we’re lucky we catch a glimpse but that will quickly be distorted…just kidding I like it!

  2. I’m quite fond of calamity because you not only see your true self, but the true side of others.

    Plus, sometimes it’s just fun to be caught up in chaos not knowing the outcome! 😉
