When I first heard Hitch give this answer, I didn't really understand it...

These days, I do.


Coochy coo..

Let's say you're in a car which that's in a moving semi-trailer. Let's assume that it's an automatic

The back flips down to make a ramp, and you throw the car into reverse to back down that ramp.

Now, instead of doing an immediate 180 and ending up facing traffic, you throw the gear into drive, while you're still in reverse, so that way you can pass the moving truck that you've just exited.

Now, how do you do this without coming to a complete stop first? Aren't you going to fuck up the transmission? Are today's vehicles even capable of being put into drive while they're still moving in reverse?

Or do you either do the 180 or just come to that complete stop first?

Rest in power, T'Pring.

Remember the good times...


Very soon.

I'm sure that he didn't anticipate THAT…

You could be wealthy and never want for material things...

You could be smart and witty and know more than most.

You could be supremely talented, with a myriad of skills and accomplishments that few of us will ever have.

You could be loved and cherished and admired by millions.

You could mean the entire world to your friends and family.

You could be someone who seems that the world could not do without.

You could be all of these things and many, many more...

But you could also be depressed and know that you're a worthless thing that doesn't even deserve to exist.

And that's the worst of all, because those of us who are left behind will never understand.

Goodnight, Robin.

May you rest in both peace and power in the next world, that you could not find in this one.
