    “How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, “This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant?” Instead they say, “No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.” A religion, old or new, that stressed the magnificence of the Universe as revealed by modern science might be able to draw forth reserves of reverence and awe hardly tapped by the conventional faiths.” – Carl Sagan

    “Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell me, if you have understanding. Who determined its measurements—surely you know! Or who stretched the line upon it? …. when I made clouds its garment and thick darkness its swaddling band,… Have you commanded the morning since your days began, and caused the dawn to know its place, Have you entered into the springs of the sea, or walked in the recesses of the deep? Have the gates of death been revealed to you, or have you seen the gates of deep darkness?” – God #micdrop


    • Marvel gave an impromptu safety brief while sprinting between speed bumps. Synopsis: Breathing through the now during sprinting may lead to passing out.
    • Much moaning and grunting.
    • Bunker caved under pressure when calling for lunges as a transition workout. Marvel took the opportunity to demonstrate proper form of calling for a workout that while not everyone’s favorite helps “leave no man where you found him!”
    • YHC ran out of printer ink and had to complete the Q with a digital Weinke. Fortunately, it proved useful that the D-Weinke is both water and sweat resistant.
