HA! Bring on the apocalypse. As long as most of humanity goes with me, I don't mind dying. I'm getting aggravated watching the obese coke chugging TV watching normalcy biased armchair partisans destroy hundreds of thousands of years of human evolution. If Q from Next Generation was here, he'd say "So long, its been good". Unless someone gets off their ass and organizes some kind of... Change... We're fucked. The sooner the better I say.

This comes in the wake of the music industry bullying the Irish government."
