340 meters per second

Trust only movement. Life happens at the level of events, not of words. Trust movement.

Fuck yes.

I hope that by now, my boundless -- and perhaps even slightly unhealthy -- adoration for Twisty Faster has become obvious. Along with Steenblogen and Bitch PhD (and, on a good day, Tycho Brahe), Twisty rocks the righteous rant like nobody's business.

Exhibit A: "Human Rights Post # 176":

Punishing women for getting pregnant is bloodsport in Dudeville. If you’re a teenager you get kicked out of school. If you’re working you get laid off. If you were raped your brothers kill you. If you’re a drug addict you get thrown in jail. If your kid has low birth weight you’re charged with neglect. If you get murdered your fetus gets more column inches than you do. Even if you’re a properly married Jesus-American lady, you get the stink-eye when you have a glass of Chardonnay at dinner, and you’re forced to wear unbelievably ugly clothes with bows on’em.

Preach on, sister.
