closing tabs (as gaiman likes to do)

i'm trying to cut down on the number of open tabs i've left lying around my browser and so here's a thing i meant to post about:

a fair while back i got a fortune cookie at our favorite chinese restaurant out here that i found meaningful as always. it read:

the laws sometime sleep, but never die.

the phrase itself must be fairly old because i found it on google books in a 1904 book, forty thousand quotations, prose and poetical: choice extracts on history by charles noel douglas (747). a weird choice for a fortune, i thought, and not very interesting to most, but as a lawyer i dug it. that's all.
