+A bunch of great single lines that I of course forgot about as soon as I started typing.
+Possibly the best premise since ever: “The god that powers our city’s steam engines died. Better call in the lawyers to handle his estate and resurrection.”
+Did I mention they have a god powering their steam engines?

For those of you that prefer home - exercise: Fitnessblender.com is pretty amazing. Their YouTube vdeos are laidback, motivational, diverse and effective [they’ve helped me to exercise atleast 3 times a week for a few months now].
They wouldn’t say “Father of two meets world leaders today”
They’d say “President Obama meets world leaders today”.
They wouldn’t say “Father of three founds one of the most successful modern computer businesses.”
