Twelve years of Catholic school sometimes has unexpected payoffs

The problem with devil's bargains is that they are like loan-sharking. Sooner or later you're going to have to make a second and third one to live with the consequences of the first poorly-accounted trade-off. Failing to calculate the opportunity costs correctly is a problem because those costs can compound over time. Cost accounting mistakes in material goods can destroy businesses; cost accounting mistakes in spiritual goods can destroy souls. Holy shit...


Well some will sell their dreams for small desires,
Or lose their race to rats,
Get caught in ticking traps,
And start to dream of somewhere to relax their restless flight...
