The thing is, if it turns out the citizens of the great State of California actually like low vehicle license fees, almost no property tax, decaying K-12 public education and the circus atmosphere of budgetary sleight-of-hand in lieu of responsible fiscal management, then my career is meaningless before I even graduate.

tight circus :: Keith

Peter ran a tight circus and had no tolerance for that wishy-washy “half-full or half-empty” bullshit - you’d either locked the lion’s cage or you hadn’t, there was only one answer, and it damn well better be the right one.

The Circus :: 'mouse

One of the most interesting things I ever heard was a person who said “stress is all in your head” and quite correctly pointed out that every type of stress except the physical type of putting your hand in a fire, is interpreted through one’s brain—you must first hear the words or see the sight, process it and then the wave of anger, depression, hopelessness, etc. washes over you, however, it is possible to intervene in those few milliseconds, by actively deciding not to let the event stress you or through chemical rebalancing.

A Geek’s resume :: Br. Ezra

Chad soon discovered after leaving the circus that there were very few employment opportunities for a former Geek, even one who held the world record for the number of chicken heads consumed

Robot Circus :: Keith

I never cared much for the robot circus—the deafening clank of the elephants, the never-changing audio of the lion’s roar, the dim glow of the clown’s lightbulb nose—although I did kind of enjoy the intricacy of the trapeze girl’s metalwork.

I am sorry I am late, but there was an unforeseen incident involving circus clowns and a Prius
