  1. This is stupid. We see where the ball lands.

    However, if you like being surprised by things that aren’t surprising to the vast majority of people, then stay the course — you’re doing just fine in that regard.

  6. You guys are all fucking morons. It’s like this is the first blog you’ve visited. Clowns.
