Cranky Large Medium reading, 9 October

Go away.

Why are you still here? Haven't you taken enough abuse today? And you came here nonetheless? How very odd. Surely there's something about you which pushes you into this behavior. Let me look:
You are smugly academic and lacking in fancy. You should not make children any part of your business, for somewhat obvious reasons. As long as you are in the closed confines of your home, you can be demonstrative of your affections, so marriage should remain homebound.
Hmm. That doesn't explain much. Still, you seem dejected by this reading. Cheer up. You could be like these people who began their new career as wormfood on this date in history: Pope Clement II, Elisabeth of Bavaria, King John I of Castile, Ashikaga Yoshiaki, Pope Pius XII, Oskar Schindler, ... Gabriele Falloppio, Richard Blackmore, Benjamin Banneker, Pieter Zeeman, Cyril Norman Hinshelwood, ... Justus Jonas, Jean Joseph Marie Amiot, Vilna Gaon, ... ... ... Jacques Brel, ... Charles Guggenheim, David Dukes, Louis Nye, ... Helen Morgan, Marie Doro, Miriam Hopkins, Virginia Ruth Egnor aka Dagmar, ... ... Clare Boothe Luce, George Ormerod, Raymond Noorda, Enrico Banducci, Che Guevara, Pierre Mulele, Aileen Wournos,
and Milt Jackson.

He took the stairway to the stars nine years ago, and you don't hear him complaining.
Anyway, happy birthday.
