"Of the Franks (generic term for Crusaders at the time) at Constantinople, Speros Vyronis writes "For three days they murdered, raped, looted and destroyed on a scale which even the ancient Vandals and Goths would have found unbelievable. They smashed the silver iconostasis, the icons and the holy books of Hagia Sophia, and seated upon the patriarchal throne a whore who sang coarse songs as they drank wine from the Church’s holy vessels." It was even worse that the Crusaders were giving up on the Holy Lands and sacking a Christian city after more than a century of East/West hostility and suspicion regarding the Crusades."

"In The Big Lebowski, Donny is the physical manifestation of the movie’s theme. If you think about it, nobody knows anything throughout the entire film. Bunny and the Nhilists thinks there’s actual money out there. Mr. Lebowski thinks Bunny’s actually been kidnapped. And obviously The Dude and Walter have no idea what’s happening.
You can see this in Donny’s character in a few ways. First, he’s constantly told to shut the fuck up because he’s out of his element and like a child that wanders into the middle of a movie and wants to know what’s happening. Second, his character has absolutely no influence on the film’s plot, unheard of when it comes to a character with that much screen time.
And lastly, after everyone in the film finally figures out what’s happening and ignorance is vanquished, Donny dies.”
"In the movie Inception most people that watched believed Cob’s token is the spinning top but he clearly states in the movie that it was his wife’s. If you go online there is a consensus that Cob’s token is his wedding ring. This changes a lot about the story because you realize Cob has never struggled with knowing when he is and isnt awake. He only keeps the top to show how he struggles with forgiving himself of his wife’s death. The end of the film now doesnt show a mystery of whether or not Cob is awake but it represents him letting go of his wife."
"Chris Nolan said if he could have done it over again he would not have chose that ending simply because everyone was so focused on if it was still spinning or not that they completely missed the meaning of the movie. The point of it was not whether or not it would stay spinning but the fact that he walked away from it."
During a fast, such as the one that most of us enter during our nights sleep, the liver is basically providing the brain with glucose, fuel. When you wake up, your hormones dont change until you eat something. If you dont eat, glucagon stays high and your liver continues fasting state metabolism. When you do eat, insulin concentrations will increase, causing you to enter fed state metabolism. Breakfast is always talked about so much because when you first eat, you start re-fueling the livers supply of glucose (glyocogen). This however will make you hungry eventually. I myself, when skipping breakfast, can go almost a whole day without food, but it is not necessarily a good thing, just the way our bodies adapt.

From what I understand, ketosis is something that will occur during areas of much longer fasting than an overnight, say a full day or several days. It is a factor involved in adapted starvation. In your current state, assuming you are fed, only your skeletal muscle is capable of using keto-acids for energy, other tissue (including the brain, which is wicked cool) can eventually adapt to using them but we are talking like 3 days-3 weeks without a food source.
"Suddenly the king cried to Snowmane and the horse sprang away. Behind him his banner blew in the wind, white horse upon a field of green, but he outpaced it. After him thundered the knights of his house, but he was ever before them. Éomer rode there, the white horsetail on his helm floating in his speed, and the front of the first éored roared like a breaker foaming to the shore, but Théoden could not be overtaken. Fey he seemed, or the battle-fury of his fathers ran like new tire in his veins, and he was borne up on Snowmane like a god of old, even as Oromë the Great in the battle of the Valar when the world was young. His golden shield was uncovered, and lo! it shone like an image of the Sun, and the grass flamed into green about the white feet of his steed. For morning came, morning and a wind from the sea; and the darkness was removed, and the hosts of Mordor wailed, and terror took them, and they fled, and died, and the hoofs of wrath rode over them. And then all the host of Rohan burst into song, and they sang as they slew, for the joy of battle was on them, and the sound of their singing that was fair and terrible came even to the City."

"Anyone who thinks that you can have infinite growth on a planet with finite resources is either a madman or an economist." - David Attenborough
"Growth for the sake of growth is the ideology of the cancer cell." - Edward Abbey
“I’d like to share a revelation that I’ve had during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species and I realized that you’re not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment but you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed and the only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You’re a plague and we are the cure.” - Agent Smith, The Matrix
