Leeuwenhoek had stolen and peeped into the fantastic sub-visible world of little things, creatures that had lived, had bred, had battled, had died, completely hidden from and unknown to all men from the beginning of time. Beasts these were of a kind that ravaged and annihilated whole races of men ten million times larger than they were themselves. Beings these were, more terrible than fire-spitting dragons or hydra-headed monsters. They were silent assassins that murdered babies in warm cradles and kings in sheltered places. It was this invisible, insignificant, but implacable-and sometimes friendly- world Leeuwenhoek had looked into for the first time of all men of all countries. ~Microbe Hunters

Humph.

There are 123 items on my to-do list. All these things I 'want' to do and yet never feel like doing.
Most of my life spent finding any excuse to not complete some task that I am more than capable of. I work best under pressure. Nothing seems iminent, or that important. It's a game of let's see how long I can put this off and not face any consequences. I need pressure- sense of impending doom- to just get off my ass. You want to really see what i'm capable of? Tell me I cant do something, otherwise im bored, done it all before.
