That computer is running an XK-15 processor! But that’s not even supposed to exist yet. I want one.
One of the first things they ask you in the ER is to rate your pain on a scale from 1 to 10. I’ve been asked this question hundreds of times and I remember once, when I couldn’t catch my breath and I felt like my chest was on fire, the nurse asked me to rate the pain. Though I couldn’t speak, I held up 9 fingers. Later, when I started feeling better, the nurse came in and she called me a fighter. “You know how I know?” she said, “You called a 10 a 9.” But that wasn’t the truth.
I didn’t call it a 9 because I was brave. The reason I called it a 9 was because I was saving my 10…and this was it.

Arthur Pendragon "Take heart, for when Albion’s need is greatest: Arthur will rise again"
“This is just a dream. But very clever people can hear dreams. So, please, just listen. I know you’re afraid…but being afraid is all right. Because didn’t anybody ever tell you? Fear is a superpower. Fear can make you faster and cleverer and stronger. And one day, you’re going to come back to this barn, and on that day you are going to be very afraid indeed. But that’s ok. Because if you’re very wise and very strong…fear doesn’t have to make you cruel or cowardly…
Fear can make you kind.”
