Ryan looked like his namesake, Ryan Gosling, and felt he deserved more than waiting tables at Baonecci‘s.

“If you want to advance in this restaurant, you need to break the glass ceiling.”

Ryan took the advice literally. When he went up the roof to investigate, however, he discovered he couldn’t do it all by himself and gave up on the idea.

But not his ambition to rise in the ranks. Ryan would eventually become the assistant manager after wooing and winning the heart of the owner’s daughter. She was no Emma Stone, but he could live with that for sure.

It seemed like yesterday, but a quarter of century had passed since he left town.

When Dino visited the library of his youth, he noticed it had grown with the times with internet access and all. But the memories of the past still lingered.

Egged on and inspired by Angela, it was here where Dino spent a lot of time studying for the future he could only dream of growing up poor. With hard work and perseverance, it became a reality.

If Angela were around, Dino knew she’d be proud of what he had accomplished. Sadly, she was long gone.

Adam and Eve were gripped by fear and panic as they gazed over the wide open space before them.

Expelled from the Garden of Eden, they found themselves in a less hospitable environment than they were accustomed to.

Interacting with a tribe of hominins, however, improved their chances of survival.

Adam and Eve learned to adapt and to hunt and cook meat on an open fire to supplement their plant-based diet. More importantly, they were taught how to protect themselves from predators eager to eat them alive.

Life was tough, but they made it thus saving their lineage from extinction.
