"When we was in third grade the teacher said that it was time for Science and that today we were going to study the universe and the solar system and the stars and all that stuff and she said “Now our sun in our solar system is a star and stars burn out” and she just kept on talking and it hit him in the side of the head and Townes said “‘Scuse me? You tellin’ me the sun’s burning out? I gotta shine my shoes, be here on time, do my homework, sit up straight and the fucking sun’s burning out?!” He said from that day on that’s the way he lived his life, it was “‘Scuse me, the sun’s burning out are you shittin me? fuck this."
