  • Here I sit, continually downloading and deleting Despicable Me: Minion Rush so you people can live a undisturbed und fulfilled life. You know, sometimes it would be nice to get a little bit appreciation for this sacrifice but I'm okay. I can handle it. I'm fine.... I'm fine...

  • I feel like the ultimate sport would be a physical version of Warioware. Just batshit crazy insane things, perhaps swapping off between semi-augmented reality challenges and normal things like kicking a ball into a goal. Having to constantly switch between physical and reflex based tasks to mental and reflex based tasks would both appeal to everyone and definitely spur a bunch of Badass Cool Shit™️
