Depression is rage spread thin.
Boredom is rage spread thin.
I wonder what it's like to be from a state that is spread across a few islands way out in the Pacific Ocean, only added to the United States in 1959. Not only that but to be the birthplace of America's first black president? Pretty cool, I bet.

In the far, far future, essentially all matter will have returned to energy.
