»The cancer/zodiacal crab is also Berhard’s sign, and the hermit crab is called Pagurus Bernardus. This was meant to be. And didn’t last year turn us all into hermit crabs? And I have to think of Franz Kafka’s Mr. Samsa, who turned into an insect overnight just like that more than a hundred years ago.« – Chris Kriegerowski
