                    a million bucks? Obviously a scam. 
                    But telling me I’ve won a pizza? 
                    Here’s my social security number.

                            Hey, remember a couple of years 
                            ago when the Large Hadron Collider 
                            overloaded and broke down, and 
                            everyone was saying stuff like, “It’s

                            like some bizarre shift in reality!”?
