“May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.”


"This report is maybe 12-years-old. Parliament buried it, and it stayed buried till River dug it up. This is what they feared she knew. And they were right to fear because there's a whole universe of folk who are gonna know it, too. They're gonna see it. Somebody has to speak for these people. You all got on this boat for different reasons, but you all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything I know this, they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, 10, they'll swing back to the belief that they can make people . . . better. And I do not hold to that. So no more running. I aim to misbehave." ~ Captain Malcom Reynolds

Why we have tools.

Like many of my peers, I frequently have a number of items either in my pockets or close at hand.

And, it is not unusual for someone else to have a task which needs accomplished, requiring one of these tools. Be it cutting open a package, having a light for a dim location, or picking a lock.

Yet, inevitably, I get some variation of the question "But, *why* would you carry that?" and an expression of curiosity or wonder when I have the item needed...

Um, just because of situations like the one you asked for my help with!
