Wow, what can I say? Thank you, to begin with. Thank you for sharing this with me.
I didn't think anybody could do it. I didn't even know it was possible. I thought to myself, "Texas? Nope. Oregon? Nope, dang. I give up." But you didn't, Facebook buddy. You went for it. Iowa. I checked twice and there is no letter "E" in it is name. Alright.
But you didn't stop there, did you? I wish I had known how smart you were when we talked for maybe ten minutes, tops, when we were in middle school. Now that we're adults I realize you were a quiet Einstein. The state thing sealed it up. The heroic proof of your genius was right there for anybody to see, but you were not about to rest on your laurels. You decided to walk into the classroom while the math professor was gone and solve another impossible equation.
The professor walks in and sees all the numbers and variables end up with ORLANDO. He can't believe it! Why didn't he think of that? Because he's not possessed of a singular genius like you. Our brains weren't even prepared for this advanced level of knowledge.
Sometimes I dream that I'm sitting in the back of the defunct Weinermobile as it careens driverless down the highway. At first I thought this was symbolic of the powerlessness I feel in life, but then I realized it's actually the Weinermobile's dream of being able to drive again.
Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
Ignore the hype. Find out how these games will likely go right or wrong.
The Something Awful front page news tackles anything both off and on the Internet. Mostly "on" though, as we're all incredible nerds.
