The Bible said Adam and Eve, not Ted and Robin.

Our whole universe was in a hot dense state, then nearly fourteen billion years ago expansion started, wait - the Earth began to cool, the autotrophs began to drool, Neanderthals developed tools, we built a wall - WE BUILT THE PYRAMIDS! Math, science, history, unraveling the mysteries, that all started with the big bang! BANG!

"Since the dawn of man" is really not that long, and every galaxy was formed in less time than it takes to sing this song. A fraction of a second and the elements were made. The bipeds stood up straight, the dinosaurs all met their fate. They tried to leap but they were late, and they all died - THEY FROZE THEIR ASSES OFF! The oceans and Pangea, see ya, wouldn't wanna be ya,set in motion by the same big bang!

It all started with the big bang! It's expanding ever outward but one day it will pause and start to go the other way. Collapsing ever inward, we won't be here, it won't be heard; our best and brightest figure that it'll make an even bigger bang!

Australopithecus would really have been sick of us debating how we're here; they're catching deer - WE'RE CATCHING VIRUSES! Religion or astronomy, Descartes or Deuteronomy, it all started with the big bang!

Music and mythology, Einstein and astrology it all started with the big bang! It all started with the big BANG!

No one ever make me choose between Afleet Alex and I’ll Have Another as my favorite race horse.  I can’t do it.  Both were gutsy, both won two Triple Crown races and should have won the third, both had their racing careers cut short due to minor injuries.  

The 2005 Preakness is one of my favorite races to watch, seeing Alex fall to his knees and get up and barrel by the horse that hit him.  The 2012 Preakness is just as enjoyable, listening to the announcer go crazy as I’ll Have Another runs down Bodemeister.  

And of course, Afleet Alex running by Derby winner Giacomo “like he was standing still” in the 2005 Belmont, and the announcer’s call of it being an amazing performance was eerily similar to the wording of the announcer in 1973, about at the same point in the race, when Secretariat won the Triple Crown.  Jeremy Rose, after that race, stated that Afleet Alex should have been a Triple Crown winner, but he had messed up the Derby for him.  

And then there’s the 2012 Kentucky Derby, where the horse that my dad and I couldn’t stop thinking about after seeing his Santa Anita Derby came home in front.  No one will ever convince me that I’ll Have Another would have lost the Belmont had he competed in it.  With the time that race was run in?  With how long it took the leader to be overtaken by the eventual winner?  No disrespect to Rags or Paynter, of course, but I’ll Have Another would not have finished behind them.  No way.  He’d have won by daylight.

Afleet Alex, born in 2002.  I’ll Have Another, born in 2009.  My favorite race horses ever.  Don’t make me pick one.  I just can’t do it.
