Is Thanatos a rat? Or is he bull in a china shop?

(steal your face)

The year got off to a strange start when I found out a old acquaintance of mine was killed by mother nature. It seems he was riding his bike down a path he often used when a tree decided to fall over and crush him.

The whole thing seems pretty random and malicious. Was nature lying in wait?

i'm very sorry to have read about this - some events seem so random that it makes me angry. and i can't do anything about it.

That's the weirdest thing, I'm sorry to hear about your friend. Reminds me of the first scenes of Six Feet Under episodes, where they show the week's death and it's always random, like falling into a humongous dough blender or the girl who was laughing so hard she fell off her bed and snapped her neck. Makes you think twice before you reach up to that top shelf. The whole thing is so messed up, sorry, I never know what to say.

Thanks guys. I have been thinking a lot lately about all the dharma bums that I have known.
