And assuming you lasted a year... What then? You'll have to come out eventually.
Oceana has always been at war with Iraq

As sunny days give way to autumn chill and rain, it's time to shelve the shandies and move to something a little more wintery; that old Pacific Northwest classic, milk beer, aka bilk.
This recipe works best with a Porter or a Stout but any rich smooth low-hop ale will work.
1/4 milk or half-and-half
Pinch of ground cardamom
They ever say the words "But I don't want you to level up."
"Clerics are busted. You can play one, but it has the same BAB as a wizard."
"You can't use evasion because there's nowhere to dodge."
Decent penis, though.
But there have been people not getting laid for ages. Why this, why now?
Our society has stopped pretending. You are told by the news and by government officials that you are in fact a tiny cog in a big machine. You are then told that this is good, and that you should be not only PROUD of this, but that you should shit all over anyone who feels that being a cog is a bad thing.
America, Cainad, love it or leave it. Your efforts and the efforts of everyone around you flow, however indirectly, OUT to places like Afghanistan and then back IN to places like Raytheon and Goldman Sachs. Your will never get to retire - if you're lucky enough to have a job - and your children will drink filthy water for their entire lives.
And you are told, again, to SUPPORT this as good & right. And lots of people do, they're absolutely frantic about it, and who the fuck knows what these freaks tell themselves before they go to sleep every night.
It's all sick. And I am unsure exactly why it is surprising that sick people are produced by it. Action/reaction, it's how the fucking universe WORKS. "I can't get a date but this can't possibly be MY fault" and "That fucking asshole boss of mine ruins my life but I can't just WALK AWAY" and "I'll be paying off this degree for 35 years, and it qualifies me to make $18.50 per hour HAHAHAHA" and then one day you blast a room full of people at the community college, thus adding to the insane stress levels of every OTHER fucked up unit in the country.
But it makes GREAT media, and devolves quite nicely into the same old fucking 2nd amendment debates that we've been screeching past each other for 70 years.
When I think about shit like this, Cainad, I ask myself "We dropped out of the trees for this?"
In other words, I'm saying that being unable to get laid and the shootings are likely both byproducts of related factors.
I have an urge to return to this place, and that urge has been gaining momentum.
It's been a long time, so here's a re-introduction off the top of my head.
I'm Epimetheus; I'm a little baby boy of 23 years; I live in California where it's still triple-digits in mid-October and I resent every minute of it; I am working full-time; I am learning Spanish; I like art and music and language and physics and history and learning things in general; I am a college dropout but I am currently working toward a degree; I am very lighthearted but I get serious when it's about decisions that affect others - nonetheless I am generally optimistic, no matter the evidence to the contrary; I have a crush on Discordia even though she is mean to me sometimes.
Sorry about not saying goodbye. I hope it didn't hurt anyone. Here's my hello. Any questions?
It is certainly well worth noting that the majority of adolescents, male and female, are sexually frustrated, many well into their college years, making it in itself a wholly inadequate explanation, however compelling it feels from an "I can relate to that" standpoint. It also implies that simply not getting laid is enough to make young men into mass murderers, and I would certainly like to give men more credit than that.
On the other hand, loneliness, isolation, powerlessness and rejection on a more holistic level are far more plausible as primary contributing factors.
