It’s kind of insane, driving a 5 hour drive on 3.5 hours of sleep at 7 in the morning, then not going to sleep until midnight.

That’s kind of what my Thanksgiving weekend was about, aside from copious ammounts of turkey and all of that good stuff.

    Hi, my Dad just forwarded that to me and it sounds like something you’d enjoy.

    Hell, in theory
