Incidentally… I really
didn’t like hated Burial At Sea, and I’m going to forget it ever existed. Apart from the bit where Booker showed up. I miss Booker. And now I’m really depressed because I keep thinking about the ending to Bioshock Infinite and my poor, poor baby boy (see here) and I feel like complete and utter crap.
I’ve been tracking the delivery of my package of Vault Package #19… and I have no idea what’s going on with my package.
It’s gone from Nashville, to Miami, to Canada(?!), to Jamaica(?!?!?!?!) and now it’s in New York, being returned to sender because it hasn’t met Customs requirements.
WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON. I want my package :(
gettin sick of this whole “wait a week for the next episode” shit
If you think that’s annoying, try waiting years for the next book in a series.
Ugh YES. That as well.
Try having your favourite series get cancelled… Waiting any length of time doesn’t bother me now :P
Worse than all of these, including cancellation (because I’ve had that happen to me too with Garrow’s Law)?
Strange Fate by L.J. Smith. That’s all I have to say on the subject.
Delphine LaLaurie was a sadistic socialite who lived in New Orleans. Her home was a chamber of horrors. On April 10, 1834, a fire broke out in the mansion’s kitchen, and firefighters found two slaves chained to the stove. They appeared to have started the fire themselves, in order to attract attention. The firefighters were lead by other slaves to the attic, where the real surprise was. Over a dozen disfigured and maimed slaves were manacled to the walls or floors. Several had been the subjects of gruesome medical experiments. One man appeared to be part of some bizarre sex change, a woman was trapped in a small cage with her limbs broken and reset to look like a crab, and another woman with arms and legs removed, and patches of her flesh sliced off in a circular motion to resemble a caterpillar. Some had had their mouths sewn shut, and had subsequently starved to death, whilst others had their hands sewn to different parts of their bodies. Most were found dead, but some were alive and begging to be killed, to release them from the pain. LaLaurie fled before she could be bought to justice – she was never caught.
Bloody hell! This has totally freaked me the hell out. This is one of the most awful things I’ve ever read.
Edit: OK, I did some research on this and there appears to be some dispute on how exactly the slaves were tortured and maimed (not so sure how accurate all the Human Centipede-esque stuff is), but regardless the very fact of it is dreadful.
I believe a lot of conflict in the Wild West could have been avoided completely if cowboy architects had just made their towns big enough for everyone.
