Now I promise not to do this to you often but occasional I get sappy. The above quote is your moment of crystalline surgery maple sap. Nerds are pretty big into stories, look at our media, comic books that span decades, movie universes, even our video games have story bibles. At lot of people get drawn to these fictions because their reality is pretty shitty. We get picked on in school, our families are rough. We just don’t fit. What that pity little quote reminds us is that as nice as the power to hurt someone feels it doesn’t help you in the long run. It just makes more hurt. Be nicer to each other. Defend each other. Because at one point we all needed it.
