BF: Ahhhhhh!!! Ahhhhhh!!! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!

m: I, uh… you see… It was just amazing to me that you pulled it out of the fire and I was wondering how it felt at the time, you know.

BF: Buhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh-‌rrrrrrrrrrrrrrr-‌rrrrrrr-‌ing.

Re: Recycled QWA: Interview with Bobby Fischer

I feel guilty for laughing. You have a knack for hitting the funny bone in a way that makes laughter rueful.

He was a hero to me when I was a kid, and even as he slid into madness (was vindictively pushed into it) I remained an admirer. The harms he suffered for an innocuous pursuit of his passion were dreadful, but nothing erased his blaze of glory. The Icelanders did the right thing by him, to their lasting credit.

Yeah… I always bring the dead old lady into it but madness, loss of mind, was her greatest fear and I understood well; but can’t seem to get afraid of anything gosh darn me. Karma dealt her a husband with early dementia, IIRC. Teach her to be afraid of scary things.
