Take Flight!

I've thrown myself off of a cliff.
On a dare,
In the air.
Maybe the clouds will catch me.

If it doesn't kill me, it'll make me strong,
But maybe I
Prefer to die
Then face the pain the truth might bring.

But if I live my life on sturdy ground,
I'll never learn,
I'll always yearn
For freedom and air beneath my wings.

The wind whips about my face.
The world below
Seems to go
So slow.

I wonder if I'll die.
Or fly.

Iron Man

Saw Iron Man.

It was fantastic. My brain always is watching these things and looking at how they're done, but it was minimal in this movie.

A few annoying logic holes, though. What kind of idiot gives a brilliant engineer the materials to make a weapon while they're being kept captive and doesn't realize that yes, they will use said weapons against you.

And I find it hard to believe that a man in an iron suit would be so much more effective than a robot.
