Tip One Back for Jack...

...born this very day in 1922. Died right on time. A fellow Pisces (and that's where the similarities end), poet, drinker (okay, I lied before), and literary icon.

Words like scimitars to topple the giant, Ennui...

You don't know
what I'm all about
like killing cops
and reading Kerouac

— Jawbreaker, Boxcar

“I hope it is true that a man can die and yet not only live in others but give them life, and not only life, but that great consciousness of life.”

-I don't think we need to call the Mythbusters to confirm if he accomplished this
