DO NOT PRESS THIS BIG RED BUTTON! NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES! WE WARNED YOU!!

Hey! Wait! WHAT THE FUCK DID YOU JUST PRESS THE BUTTON FOR!?!?!?

No, not you. I'm talking to...er....myself.

The button in question is a short story (which I read described as a "bona fide mindfuck" somewhere on the internet) called I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream.

Oh, yeah. Party time.

Anyway, despite the warnings and my own apprehension and the title, I did go and read the stupid story.

I'm horrified and a bit nauseated to say that the internet, in this case, was right about this one: it's one of the sickest, most terrifying, most psychologically traumatic buttons I've ever had the misfortune to subject my poor fragile mind to, ever.

*rocks back and forth and whimpers a bit*

I know it's human nature, but I feel like a schmuck anyway.

If you Google the title of the story there's a PDF of it very close to the top of the results, if you're curious.....

See? Don't you feel, just a little bit, like you want to take a look? Even after my testimony?

Or maybe it's just me, and I should be taking medication for this sort of behavior.

On a comPLETELY different note, I picked up Eragon for the first time in a couple years, and---wow....Christopher Paolini....what a hack writer.

My views weren't really helped along by the fact that I'd just watched a tape of Star Wars Ep IV.
