Wait, why ‘thousand wrecks’?

What my degree and job experience doesn’t tell you is that I minored in Literature with a focus on Shakespeare and his contemporaries. One of my favorite monologues is Clarence’s dream from Richard III (1.4.9–33), and it just stuck. If you didn’t recognize the reference, don’t worry; it’s a nod, not required reading. Maybe one day I’ll design a full set of Shakespeare-themed things and assume my final form of nerd.
