The Top Ten Most Annoying Hobos: #2: Second Cup

  2)   Second Cup   The second place gets on my nerves so bad I almost considered not including it. On paper, it’s the best place on the list and a great place to write in general. Quite spacious, it offers a large number and selection of seats and the prices are decent: you can […]

God of Infinity Part 3: Paranoia Finally Sets In

I’d like to take a moment here to indicate that this is truly where paranoia will begin to set in. If there is any psychiatry resident reading this, Sumer would make a fantastic subject. This guy is literally a walking DSM-V. Let’s read the next paragraph: DAMNIT! I’ve noticed phone calls in recent days, and […]

So THAT is the data. GREAT data. And you have decided to give it to us after all? OH MY GOD I CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH, SUMER! And your data is that any color that isn’t white is abusing humanity? And we are supposed to experiment on that how exactly? How, Sumer? On other websites, […]
