I WANT TO BE A SUICIDE BOMBER

> ha. i tried it and most definitely do not want to be one.

> Barb F: what were you saying about vortexes on january 12, 2046?

> wtf.

> well, perhaps, I should have known that this book doesn’t apply to North Americans

> as a deleuzian you shouldn’t buy into identitarian politics so readily.

> i wish you the best in your endeavours, but they are not my endeavours —- either by theory or praxis.

> ah Americans, nothing can save you from stupidity!
