What is Ambivalence, Alex?

I don’t expect you to believe me. It’s tough to understand radical changes in the laws of nature. I don’t often witness a shift in the Earth’s center of mass, myself. However, when the world tilted two degrees, everything became strange. Rivers ran upstream. Buildings collapsed. Perhaps oddest of all, that incorrigible wall hanging straightened out. Riots broke out against the sluggish government. The science community scrambled to rewrite physics amid proclamations of the apocalypse. You would have thought the world had turned upside down. As for me? I just put a book under the T.V. and continued watching Jeopardy.
