Correction: Duck's quacks DO echo. The echo just sounds exactly like the quack, so it's hard to hear. They busted that myth on MythBusters ;D I don't actually watch that show, but we watched that episode in science yesterday.

~This is just...fascinating, though.~

Life is like thunder; powerful, confusing, wonderous, loud, inexplainable, sudden, beautiful in ways you can't even begin to describe, and completely unexpected. Death is like lightning; it strikes even the most powerful things, and shoots through the ground to everyone nearby, leaving them with only a painful aftershock.

Almost dying changes nothing. Dying changes everything.

Cry me a river, build a bridge, and get over it.
