“The problem with the Milky Way is that we are inside the Milky Way.” –from a (fairly basic) article about galactic cannibalism.
That could be the epigraph to something amazing.
Or preface. Just a great sentence.
Also: Whereabouts in Texas do you live? I grew up in Abilene, and have spent a lot of time in Dallas and Austin.
Yeah, awesome. It drives me a little nuts when people point to the night sky and say, “Look, you can see the Milky Way.” How about glancing at the underside of your shoe and saying the same?
Hey, cool, I didn’t know you were a Texan! I actually just moved to Portland, Oregon, but I was born and raised in San Antonio, and lived in College Station briefly, and Austin for a long time.
There’s another Texan here, right? Let’s take over. WE HAVE GUNS, NON-TEXANS, AND JALAPENOS, REPRESENT

This is the best quotation I’ve read in months. Also, I am Texan. Conspiracy?
GUNS AND PEPPERS!
I wouldn’t rrrreeeaallly call myself a Texan, either, but Texas is a beautiful and weird state.
Gene is more Texan than Texas. Perfect description.
