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

I'm Always Right

I'm the kind of person who always has to be right. I will get angry. It builds up inside me. If you give me one snotty remark, I will hate you and avoid you forever. If you try and prove me wrong or insult my knowledge, I will hate you and avoid you forever. If you try and piss me off by pissing me off, I will hate you and avoid you forever. If you try and pull anything over on me to make yourself feel better, I will hate you and avoid you forever.

Here's the thing. I grew up with this mindset, and I found legitimate evidence to support this mindset. In Meet the Robinsons, the bowler hat guy says, "Everyone will tell you to let it go and move on, but don't. Instead, let it fester and boil inside you". Now, see, I was right. I am always right.

Damn. I had this whole post planned out in my head but my brain went running.

Darn good and sure of it,
