That's the cost of scrap paper. The Internet will be basically for free and it will be inside our contact lens. When we blink, we will go online.

I should have had million thoughts, like Hamlet.

The day hangs on for as long as it can, bright and eager, absolutely and positively the last guest to leave the party, while the ground darkens, oozing night around your ankles, swallowing for ever that dropped contact lens, making you miss that low catch in the gully on the last ball of the last over.
