    Whether you're riding down a highway or walking down a street, it makes no difference.
    Anyplace is paradise.

    Paradise is that moment of perfect ease just before your nose itches and you move to scratch it.

    I think paradise is basically wherever you want to be most. That could be a physical place, or a mental state of being, or whatever. It's like beauty; a subjective definition. Paradise for me right now would be to be living in Chicago. That probably wouldn't be considered an ideal place for most, but for me... it's perfect.

    Paradise is that particular day that you wake up like you're the king of the world, have the greatest breakfast ever (I'm a morning kinda guy), and the rest of the day is just groovy.

    It's when you have a really good sandwich.
    I mean, a really really good sandwich.

    Then comes the soul-crushing realization that you'll never have such an enjoyable sandwich again for as long as you live.






    ... I miss that sandwich.

    My knowledge of scientific biological transmogrifications is only outmatched by my zest for Kung-Fu treachery.

    My paradise is the thought of someday walking down the stairs on a late Sunday morning to a safe, comfortable, stable and happy wife and kids.

    I put the question to google maps. Apparently it's an industrial estate in Hertfordshire.
