If we hadn’t been in the hospital for our oldest daughter, she would have died not long after birth (SVT). And my wife would have died from giving birth to our twins (hemorrhage). So I’m very glad all those people were around. Read more

Okay, I didn’t see her take the piece out of her mouth. I haven’t seen Zardoz but Hieronymous’ mask does look like one in Zardoz screenshots I’ve seen. Both seem influenced by ancient Greek and comedia del arte masks.

I had to fill in this survey blind because there was a sticky video at the to of the viewport and a sticky ad at the bottom. Then my keyboard took up the test of the screen leaving space for 2 lines of content. Hopefully you can make sense of the inevitable typos from writing without looking!
