Lucky To Be Alive

Quite tired after my New York Thanksgiving expedition and a long bus ride, I had a serious lapse of attention on my drive from the terminal that very well could have killed me.

When I took a left turn from Avenue A onto Airport Road, I thought I was in the proper southbound lane, but then approaching headlights made me realize with a cold sweat that I was actually in the NORTHBOUND lane, going south against oncoming traffic. A single car whizzed past me, honking wildly.

It was too narrow to do a U-turn, so I decided to risk driving over the concrete mound that separated the northbound from the southbound lanes. (The map exaggerates the distance between the lanes.)

A Heretofore Unexamined Life

You scored as Friedrich Nietzsche. Well you're an egotistical maniac, and you are so very iconoclastic that you probably are currently lost in a post-modern Jupiter, I mean jungle of self-definition.

Don't let it get you down though, someday, through a willful onslaught of reinterpretation of dated forms and ideas, you will strike on something that passes as remotely new, and people WILL be into it on the basis of how hip it is alone. Also, the average espresso drinker looks up to you.
