According to Julie

The world is enough

Tim Minchin’s poem "Storm" is brilliant, and really doesn’t require a comment from me. Here’s a quote:

Does the idea that there might be knowledge frighten you?
Does the idea that an afternoon on Wiki-fucking-pedia might enlighten you, frighten you?
Does the notion that there might not be a supernatural so blow your hippie noodle that you’d rather just stand in the fog of your inability to google?
Isn’t this enough?
Just this world?
Just this beautiful, complex, wonderfully unfathomable natural world? How does it so fail to hold our attention that we have to diminish it with the invention of cheap man-made myths and monsters?
– Tim Minchin, Storm

… and I’ve published the full animated video below.
