the bastard just started re reading neil gaiman's sandman…
and I just finished reading one of my favorite one shots.
Morpheus and his sister death are out among the people 500 years ago in a pub and a guy named rob gadling is telling his friends that the only reason people die is because everyone else around them is doing it and that he has no intentions of dying because its for suckers.
so Morpheus makes a deal to meet him at the same bar every 100 years to discuss how it's going.
it's a very interesting rich story. now go read it.
