America makes billions on interest from student loans from graduates who can’t find jobs in their field
"Everyone ends up going to New York, where in reality, you have to work nonstop just to pay the rent — it’s not bohemian. You can’t express yourself because you’re concerned with expressing yourself in a way that will get you fed. It’s bullshit. I don’t think there are any bohemian places left in America. Wicker Park in Chicago used to be lined with lofts that were filled with art school kids hanging out and dancing all night. Does culture like that exist anywhere in America now? In Manhattan, you’ll get a free bottle for bringing in your cool friends, but the only reward you get out of it is whatever they pay you for hosting and how drunk you get for free. You’re not contributing to culture — you’re an ornament for the rich people. There’s no actual place where you can create art and culture, anymore."
"Maybe a relationship is just two idiots who don’t know a damn thing except the fact that they’re willing to figure it out together."
"The idea of the world as composed of weightless atoms is striking just because we know the weight of things so well."
Monorail - Seattle, Washington
One of the two trains making the 1 1/4 mile - 95 second run between the downtown station on Westlake Mall and exposition grounds.
The card was mailed on Oct 19, 1962 from Seattle, Washington to Michigan City, Indiana:
We are staying at the Exposition Travel Lodge and arrived here at 8 AM. The “fair” doesn’t open until 10 Am so am writing a few cards. Wish you you could be here to enjoy the fair with us.

Meet Hercules the 900+ lb liger(hybrid offspring of a male lion and a tigress)! Hercules is is recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest living cat on Earth. Hercules was bred on accident and lives Myrtle Beach Safari wildlife preserve in South Carolina. He is 131 inches long, and measures 49 inches tall at the shoulder. I kind of want to ride it into battle.
