    Is @grumpygy still counting on this thread?

    Some will die in hot pursuit
    And fiery auto crashes
    Some will die in hot pursuit
    While sifting through my ashes
    Some will fall in love with life
    And drink it from a fountain
    That is pouring like an avalanche
    Coming down the mountain

    I just saw on a documentary that the cost for the United States efforts in Afghanistan were $580,000,000,000. That’s $580 BILLION.
    Unfathomable.
