1. I can listen to the Inception soundtrack while I work, with the volume as loud as I want.
2. I can watch Explosions Gone Wrong and call it research. And while watching Explosions Gone Wrong, I can learn new vocabulary. Did you know that a bleve (pronounced “blevy”) is a boiling liquid expanding vapor explosion caused by the rupture of a vessel containing a pressurized liquid above its boiling point? Now you do. Also, if you hear that a gasoline tanker is on fire at a propane storage depot, turn around and head in the opposite direction.
3. That mother who belittled at my kindergartner on the playground? The one who yelled at my son because he told her kid to stop knocking him off the swings? Yeah, she ends up as a villain in a novel.
