Good Lord! The worst (and I mean the best) JFK conspiracy documentary is on Amazon Prime now! Back in the day, Netflix had this glorious treasure, and I’m glad that it has finally found a new home.

His heart was beating like UVB-76, but his hands were steady.

This is the best line I’ve written in months.

I’m huddled up with a book while SomeFM plays in the background, and I just realized that if I were at DEF CON, I’d be doing the exact same thing.

I’d probably be dressed a lot better, though, if we’re being fair here. And I am.
