The Higher We Soar

It is Friedrich Nietzsche who we attribute to having said that ‘the higher we soar, the smaller we appear to those who cannot fly.’ He actually went on to coin several other flight related quotes, but as ole’ Friedrich kicked the bucket in late 1900 I doubt that he actually ever boarded anything resembling a real aircraft.

Bullish Defense Perimeter

As we are officially embedded with the bear brigade it’s now time to scope out the bull’s long term defense perimeter. Since Sergeant Gold Gerb suffers from chronic insomnia he was uniquely qualified to make his way into enemy territory overnight and report back to us. Not only was he able to collect extensive intelligence, he even managed to take out a nest of stop runners single handedly with nothing but a sharpened spoon. Now here’s some of what he uncovered:
