A Note of Dissent

The Universe is stupid and was probably hastily conceived. The Earth should have been an equal distance away from the Sun, so that I wouldn't feel so damn cold. To counter the human ageing effect resulting in the shortened Earth year, Earth could well have bounced to the heavens and back again intermittently while going […]
