My life is so hard. I wish I was one of the cool kids but no.

The Battle Cat's 12 point program will turn you into a cool kid.  You should register at one of my seminars.  We cover such important topics as  have rich parents, be really good looking, and be a natural born leader.  Learn how to live by your own set of rules, the 20 not stupid ways to comb your hair, and electrically induced animal magnetism.  You'll never spend a more worthwhile life savings.

Well we did agree that MS is at a minimum stupid, at worst downright malicious. That's enough fact-finding for one day I'd say. Good work, everyone!

Well, let me run down the list here...
  • My parents are well off. I wish I was!
  • I am a very handsome man, well I used to be a few decades ago.
  • I usually led people during cardiac arrest response (codes) when I was a nurse. This involved resuscitating someone for transport to a hospital where obviously a doctor would be running the show. For some reason I was always very calm and focused during codes, probably because I'd been to many in a hospital setting whereas the staff I was working with had limited experience in emergency care comparatively. Anyway, I guess I can lead when nobody else wants to.
  • Rules are for conformists. I blaze my own trail. For some reason, I am no longer welcome in many places.
  • There is no way to comb my hair since I don't have any.
  • ECT (electro-shock therapy) has granted me permanent animal magnetism along with a handy glow at night. The lights are never completely out wherever I am.
  • You're right about life savings. I sold everything I owned to take care of my kids when the going got rough. I have no regrets. I feel really good about that. I even have nice stuff again now too so it all worked out despite my ex-wife's satanic lawyer.
So, apparently I've got the right stuff to be a cool kid after all and just didn't know it. All I need to do now is play hundreds of hours of Borderlands in its various incarnations and everything will be right in the world. There is a sweet bundle of the last two games complete with all DLC I think for PS4 so after the hard work of sitting up to play the first game at my iMac I can lay down on the sofa to play the rest of them. I think if you are going to lead people, save countless worlds and more it is important to rest up so you can always be at the ready for real life action not that I've seen any of that for a long time...
