We need new idiomatic expressions. If you’re not familiar with the term idiomatic expressions, it doesn’t refer to the look you get on your face when you hit your thumb with a hammer. It refers to popular sayings that are pregnant with additional meanings. You know, things like, “hold your horses.” Well, this dude can hold a blob of 2000-degree glass and get a horse to hold out of it. He can make a Ferrari hood ornament out of melted sand. We have to come up with a new expression in his honor. How about “more expensive than a glass Ferrari.” Done.

There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.
Why isn’t this “a thing”? If it is a thing, I didn’t know it’s a thing. If it is a thing already, I apologize for not knowing it’s a thing. If it’s not a thing, I demand that it become a thing, pronto.
Honestly, axe throwing is a thing. Escape rooms are a thing. Talking on social media about pizza or tacos like they were caviar and Dom is a thing. They’re not nearly as cool, if you will, as ice kart racing. Of course the video is from Russia, where they have ice on July 4th at noon. But gentlemen, we cannot afford an ice kart gap!

We were all born kings. We were carried around on tuffets and sedan chairs and sat on thrones. Queens paraded us through the streets and we waved and everyone waved back. We were kings of the world. Do something worthy of that great station. Make a prince with your consort and keep the whole ball of wax rolling along.
