Dreams I Might Have Had

Flying is learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss

I have always wanted to fly, and taking the advice of Ignatius J. Reilly, considered that the endevour could easily be accomplished by the proper application of theology and geometry.

You will never fly unless you believe you can fly. That is where the theology comes in, but more than that you need a bloody big rock, an isolated rock in the forest ... somewhere to launch yourself into the stratosphere. Trembling at the thought of the launch.

Isolation is essential, because if you have got your theology wrong. then nobody will be about to see you go arse over tit. Ignatius hit the nail on the head when he said that bad theology leads to bad lives, which end very badly.
