Vera

“Six men came to kill me one time. And the best of ’em carried this. It’s a Callahan full-bore auto-lock. Customized trigger, double cartridge thorough gauge. It is my very favorite gun. This the best gun made by man. It has EXTREME sentimental value. I call it Vera.”

Eleven inherent metaphoric parallels already there… Noah’s ark is a problem. We’ll have to call it ‘early quantum state phenomenon.’ Only way to fit 5,000 species of mammals on the same boat… It’s broken. It doesn’t make sense.”

“… I calculated the odds of this succeeding versus the odds I was doing something incredibly stupid… and I went ahead anyway.”

This is sort of a CliffsNotes for pretty much any chapter in my life. My memoirs in a nutshell, if you will.
