2017, let's reengage RYP, make the BFC great again

Or at least a place for travellers and those who want to travel visit.

Fuck travellers, they are mostly dilettante flakes in search of some meaning in their shitty little lives which they do on the back of their wage differential with the grateful little people in what they think are edgy far off lands. Up the workers I say.

The date is as reliable as the release date for the PhD which contributed to killing the site. The only thing around here you can set your watch by is being called a village idiot, troll or a bully about every six months when HMV checks in and skim reads. Reminds me of school.

Insult to injury, the fact that she was given "mod" duties. A mistake. It was a time, all the machinations and triangulation that came out of that. The plot kept thickening.

I really do think I'll write a novel.

Hell, maybe it would actually get read.


What I'll do is, I'll write a disclaimer and I'll attach a novel to it.

But Kurt and Pelton did eventually slam down the gavel on that one right?

(Rumor has it that they were just trying to crack open walnuts with that gavel and had no idea what they were actually doing. But hey whatever.)

The guy had every right to smack the shit out of them and smash that little cunts camera. Police should arrest fucktards like that.

Those two SJWs would last about one day up here before going into a wood chipper and out a dog team's asses.

We just ain't seeing that kind of shit up here. The most heavily armed state per capita seems to be the most polite state for political discourse and freedom of opinion. Who knew?
