This, then, seems a perfect time to discuss the massive end of things that is staring humans in the eyeballs right now. What follows are […]

The Ultimate Test of Friendship

April 2, 2020

19

Friendship was invented a long time ago, specifically when some random human told a second human, “Hey! There’s a Big Something behind you” just in time for the second human to jump out of the way as a surly mastodon barreled through. After that, the two became buddies and watched fighting every Friday night together. […]
