There is a bird in a poem by T. S. Eliot who says that mankind cannot bear very much reality; but the bird is mistaken. A man can endure the entire weight of the universe for eighty years. It is unreality that he cannot bear.

Ursla Le Guin (1929-2018)

The Lathe of Heaven, 1971

2019 Spelling Bee

Recorded: May 30th, 2019

Notes:

Normal speed. The three words the video focuses on are parochialism, horripilation and kentledge. Perhaps the producers had a certain someone in mind. MAGA today cataclysm tomorrow. The 2018 champion, Karthik Nemmani, spent 36 hours a week studying for the competition. Ouch!
