    Well, everyone, it's been about ten weeks since I found this site, and only a few months since I found the internet. It's been real.

    You're all very witty, very weird people and I love you for it.

    I've never participated in an online forum before, and it sure has been a learning experience for me. Having looked around at other sites, I realise I struck gold with HoL.

    I wonder if it's the moral of Arcanum that unites us (trust no-one, question everything) or if it's just a general computer-game-nerd herd-instinct. Anyway, thanks everyone for letting me tag along in this community. Even the disagreements have been good. A special thanks to any enemies I might have out there.

    I feel I can now negotiate any other forum online with impunity, having cut my teeth on the awesomest one ever.

    This makes me want to kill things with my pellet rifle. Not sure why...I suppose I got the urge after squeezing a bag of rubber bands when I looked at my lead pellet tin. So maybe this isn't why.

    I don't understand, is this a modified copypasta?

    Well, I don't want to shoot it anymore, if that counts for anything.

    What does squeezing rubber bands have to do with pellet guns?

    I would have thought it was obvious. He was squeezing the bag of rubber bands in anger or else just idle violence. As he's doing this his eyes fall upon the tin pellets and he feels like killing something with his pellet gun out of anger or else just idle violence.

    Therefore, looking at pellets + squeezing rubber band bag = wanting to kill things with pellet gun.

    It's only logical.

    You know, I actually wish it was logical, because it doesn't much make sense how it really happened. I was looking for something on my desk, a lighter. I found no lighter, but saw a bag of rubber bands, full to the brim with elastic goodness. I had to squeeze it for the sensation of squishing a bag full of rubber, and then my eye caught the pellet tin, just next to my medical tackle box. I thought of how great it would be to rid the neighborhood of some pesky squirrels; I don't trust them. Plus, I think I love my best friend's girlfriend. I hang out with them a lot, and have even had opportunity to spend time with her alone. We smoke hookah and chill. she's like me, but if I was much more artistically productive. I really can't put in to words how I feel about her.

    This actually does make sense to me. What an horrible situation. Is it the same girl you were posting about weeks ago?
    She sounds cool, I think I love her too. [Just kidding.]

    I've been there too, man. It sucks.
