Making My Fortune


"Children woke up at six-thirty in the morning and shifted directly into fourth gear. Fourteen hours later they rushed straight into sleep at more than a hundred miles an hour without decelerating. If one could attach electrodes and draw energy directly from children, one could make a fortune."
--Peter Hoeg from The Quiet Girl

It's just not fair that their parents can't tap into their energy, it seriously irks me!
