On Permanence

This is a very somber post regarding the more bizarre iterations of humanity in the modern age.

A kid I went to high school with, who joked with me for two straight years of pre-calc and calculus, who spent more time playing "Block Man" on our graphing calculators than he did looking at the chalk board, died tonight after fighting brain cancer for the last 18 months. One of the happiest kids I've ever met.

And it wasn't real to me until I went into my buddy list and deleted his contact information.

This is not the future we were promised.
