It's a little slow at times, and they go on tangents that don't seem fruitful, however, it ends up being all worth while when asked the eternal question: "...well why not take out a gun and shoot me right now!" The proof is in the pudding, or in this case, the brain matter on the wall.

Meanwhile, I've been informed, once again, by the genius's at the IMDb counsel on higher learning and wasted words, that my 10 line quota has not been met to their satisfaction. Is it possible someone somewhere is actually garnishing a paycheck for reviewing my post, to ensure the 10 lines minimum has been met? What kind of paycheck would that be anyhow, I wonder. Do they pay in American currency? In coupons from the local Starbucks or 7/11? I'm fascinated to know. Meanwhile I'll just keep on typing until my ten lines have been reached and ponder my futile existence on this...
