Mind-blowing events

The last week has been rather... Eventful.

Firstly, HABEMUS PAPAM!!! Viva Papa Francisco!!!!
We have the first-ever pope named Francis! Mind=blown.
We have the first-ever Jesuit pope! Mind=blown.
We have a pope who loves everybody he meets, and isn't afraid to take off unattended in the streets of Rome. Mind=blown.
And the minds of the Swiss Guard and the Secret Service=blown×1000. Poor guys, they are constantly terrified.

Speaking of the Swiss Guard... The pope is officially the coolest person on the face of the earth (not exaggerating), but the Swiss Guard are officially the second-coolest. There's no one remotely like the Swiss Guard. You don't mess with the Swiss Guard. Because they're the Swiss Guard, that's why.

Also, the pope's Latin title is Pontifex Maximus. That's Latin for "the greatest bridge-maker." He makes a bridge between Heaven and earth. Mind=blown.

Lastly, on a completely unrelated note, Evelyn Waugh was a man.
Evelyn Waugh.

P. S. Here is the Swiss Guard. They are mindbogglingly cool. I dare you to disagree.
