If you think about it, your family tree is an upside down tournament bracket of surnames competing for your last name
(but given Western Culture that's pretty sexist!)
"The most powerful weapon on earth is the human soul on fire."
Ferdinand Foch.
I find that an evocative and scary and kind of hilarious image. I guess part of growing up with a (partially self-inflicted, I guess) fear of endless hellfire, one that still gives me a perpetual sense of being judged by some ineffable Other that might mete unknown but possibly terrible punishment if I get out of line with what I Should Be. Which I guess has kept me on a generally more secure path in life, but it seems like there should be gentler ways to get there.

Also, I dunno, just a weird visual of a dude running around, hands flapping furiously, "MY SOUL'S ON FIRE MAN!!! GAAAAH!"
What a rainbow-ish celebration! Headphones and full screen recommended:
