We’ve got some choices to make. Stay here and burn or take our chances with the sharks and the waves and the icy, frothy chop. I prefer to burn I think but in that quick decision I’ve suddenly remembered a factoid I heard long ago. I heard that when you burn to death, your eyes explode before you actually die. Babe, I don’t want my goddamned eyes exploding. But maybe that’s better than treading until hypothermia and exhaustion kick in and I pathetically sink like a stone without even the slightest energy left to panic. Maybe that option is better than being ripped apart by hungry sharks though now that I sit and think about it more. I mean, exploding eyes don’t sound so bad when it’s up against have your limps torn off and swallowed right in front of you. If we don’t make a choice though, our indecision will choose for us. All I’m saying it this: we got options babe. At least a few. [Ryan Nimmo]
