Zack: You and your companions set off across the countryside towards the last known location of Questlandia. It is a nice day.
Steve: I am wary of danger.
Zack: You encounter a bird chirping suspiciously. It looks to be a Blue Jay.
Steve: I command my henchmen to assail it with their magic as I creep closer in order to use my spear.
Zack: The bird begins calling you fat.
Steve: "Cease your unholy words, bird! I am not fat at all!"
Zack: Trebbelos the baby magician uses his ESP powers to determine the outcome of the battle. "You will lose this one, fatso!"
Steve: I hurl my spear through the bird's accursed breast.
Zack: The spear strikes the tree and sticks into its trunk. The bird flies to a different tree. You can hear it asking if you missed because your fat got in your eyes.
Steve: You win this one, bird, but mark my words, I will be back with more spears and greater ability to throw them.
Zack: The bird is unconvinced.
Steve: We continue on to Questlandia.
Zack: Soon you arrive outside a mountain fortress. As you enter, you see several dead adventurers, their bodies rotting, who have triggered traps and been killed.
Steve: This Joe Rogan is a trapper. What are his methods?
Zack: It appears he has planted dart traps that are laced with DMT, sending each adventurer on their internal death journey to a spiritual realm while their body is left to die. Also spike traps.
Steve: We continue on, but more cautious of mind-altering experiences.
Zack: You want to have your mind altered? Let's talk about the so-called moon landing.
Yes, it's the perfect form for surviving a car crash. But it's also the perfect form for so much more, like surviving the trauma of reading any news headline in 2016.
It's just a little confusing, is all.
