' oh fuck oh fuck it's a fucking virus i did NOT see that coming' but it made so much sense 'prepare to lose your life' .
jesus i'm glad to be safe.

>there is an ugly person staring back at you
So who got the furthest?
i tried to write one in basic when i was about 11, but
a) it was rubbish and just ripped off Shadowrun.
b) i didn't know nearly enough basic to make it work very well.
>lubricate bolt with gunk
Hmm. It appears the tube contained glue, not oil. Turning the bolt won't be any easier...

How do I get into Hades?
