Hey fuckface

Yeah you. I know that you're not interested in the book. I get that. But for those people that don't want to know the surprise ending, don't fucking spout off about it. Same thing goes for movies. If you know the ending, shut the fuck up about it when… more »

Have you seen these ads on TV? They talk about how people have hobbies and sports and such things that replace a need for drugs. One of them in particular really bugs the hell out of me. It has this teenage girl's entire night running in reverse. Starts… more »
