Today, you are a member of… Captain’s Chair

ahabAhab. Four little letters that spell out totally insane. But don’t be mistaken. He wasn’t just run of the mill batshit. In Moby Dick, Melville describes Ahab’s psyche as such: “If such a furious trope may stand, his special lunacy stormed his general sanity, and carried it, and turned all its concentrated cannon upon its own mad mark; so that far from having lost his strength, Ahab, to that one end, did now possess a thousand-fold more potency than ever he had sanely brought to bear upon any one reasonable object.” And so too you, member. This week you’ll get the itch to be an army of crazy, dead set on pursuing a juggernaut that some believe myth, others believe threat, and most believe outside the airy realms of reason. You’re captain’s chair awaits: Go batshit of the highest magnitude. After all, if you want the whale, you got to get your Ahab on.
