I liked the rush…

“I liked the rush, I liked the crunch. Never did look back at the fallout.”

Theme for our course on human history, a quote from the last human left.

Note the landscape in the photo above. Humans left very little behind when they were finished with their planet.

Note, in the mirror, evidence that in end times they carried a little habitat called a “trailer” behind them, in which they could abide in the wasteland they had created. They lived like death turtles.

Ironically, the final humans did not need to look back at the fallout. It caught up with them.

Hit the Ceiling

“When Dad heard, he hit the ceiling. He raised the roof.”

“Yeah, he blew a gasket.”

“Don’t mix metaphors.”

“Sorry. He was bouncing off the walls. How’s that?”

“Good. Thank you. He put his foot down. It was Katy bar the door.”

“He ran around like a chicken with its head… Nah… All our privileges went right out the window.”

“You said it. He was ready to clean house with us.”

“Make us get our house in order.”

“A plague on both our houses.”

“A house of ill repute!”

“Well, he didn’t go that far.”

Latvia have many forests. I live in one. This time I leave forest to see more Latvia. I am in city with cars and trucks. On bridge over Daugava River. River much bigger here. Much bigger. I try to fish from bridge. Too high. Police come. Send me back to forest. Good.
