Once upon a time, there lived in a magical land a snake, named Nate.
In this land, actually rather close to Nate’s house there was a great road, and next to this road was a lever.
The lever was ancient and the mythology around the lever was that if you were to push it, it would trigger the end of the world.
One day, Nate was slithering down the road, and he came upon the lever and began crossing the road so he could look at it.
At the same moment, a truck came careening around a corner and the driver found himself in a dilemma: either hit the snake or end the world.
Needless to say, the driver ran over Nate and went on his merry way.
The moral of the story is: Better Nate than Lever.
