FOOLISH SKEPTICS. DO NOT SCOFF.
There’s a CHANGE.ORG petition with 23,000 signatures requesting Death give him back to us:
“Its a million to one chance, but it might just work …..”
“I suspect the chances of this working are quite small. However, I’m signing because if it turned out later on that a petition would have worked, and we hadn’t even tried, we’d feel bad.”
“Terry Pratchett turned Death from a figure of hate into a much loved and sometimes welcomed character. No-one else cared about you Death. You owe him!”
“Look, I know he’s just doing his job and all but at least he could check the hourglass just to be sure? I know, I know, THEY ALL SAY THAT, but it’s worth a shot.”
These are good reasons to sign. So are Pratchett quotes like these:
“Time is like a drug. Too much of it kills you.”
“No one is actually dead until the ripples they cause in the world die away.”
“Stories of imagination tend to upset those without one. “
“Evolution was far more thrilling to me than the biblical account. Who would not rather be a rising ape than a falling angel?”
“There is a rumour going around that I have found God. I think this is unlikely because I have enough difficulty finding my keys, and there is empirical evidence that they exist.”
Consider the final tweets from Terry’s account:
Don’t let your godless skeptical negativity block this important campaign!
