    In time, you will know what it's like to lose. To feel so desperately that you're right. Yet to fail all the same.
    Dread it. Run from it. Destiny still arrives.

    Hell yeah man, mine too. It was my first SK love.

    True story: I was visiting my grandmother in Mexico back in 98' and she had this on her coffee table. She doesn't speak a word of English, she said she picked up a copy at a book store in Guadalajara because she knew I was visiting and that I was into "spooky things".

    The rest as they say, is history.

    can't believe I'm late for this. One of my favorite books ever.

    Ask not what bears can do for you, but what you can do for bears. (razz)
    When one is in agreement with bears one is always correct. (pablo)

    I still had some honor. I still have some now.

    To all bearfriends: please read this and/or watch this
