Me and Fontainbleau were discussing why people laugh when they're tickled and why you can't tickle yourself. Turns out laughter as a reaction to tickling remains one of the last great mysteries of science. The last frontier. Go figure. It all comes down to this.

Fontainbleau took another drag from her kretek, "not for lack of trying and the musings and research of Plato, Aristotle and Darwin... theories abound, from its functions as an evolutionary response", she exhaled, "to protect oneself to a form of physical bonding between individuals in familial or intimate relationships."

"Hell of a sentence", I said. The light turned green, I paused, smiled and accelerated.
