This is how I amuse myself

Second-grade classroom, Henderson, Nevada, mid-'80s. A young Brandon Flowers gets a note from a girl passed to him and his life is changed forever:

"CHOOSE ONE
ARE YOU
_ HUMAN
_ DANCER"





(From Wikipedia: "There remains confusion and debate over the line "Are we human, or are we dancer?" ...On the band's official website, the biography section states that Flowers is singing "Are we human, or are we dancer?" and also says that the lyric was inspired by a disparaging comment made by Hunter S. Thompson, who stated that America was "raising a generation of dancers".")
