today is stupid. the earth has spun around a full time and around the sun a full time and what is the star spinning around? the earth is spinning and no one’s feeling it. the planet is a thing and my love too. someone has already correctly predicted how the world will end. and a lot of people have died. a lot of people have died and even more people have lived. and you asked me if i thought we were the only ones. and you asked me because you are a jackal and a baby baby jackal
