Are you enjoying life? We’re certainly enjoying reading the obvious signs of an apolitical game, inventing more things to haunt Cherenkov, cleaning to impress men, dunking on Allen, hiding the fish detector, threatening members of the military, turning and coughing, weighing ourselves, making it weird in the basement, getting our asses kicked in an alley, activating the forehead glyph, rejecting nanosurgery, lying about secret forehead ankh powers, detesting this old body, and wondering why women can’t work on me. It’s because of those good for nothings that I live like this now.
