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.
