My Body Has Betray Me


So, if you’ve played Battlefield Vietnam, then you totally know what I’m talking about. While you’re running around in destroyed buildings and swampy areas, there are these annoying speakers that chant over and over and over in a vietnamese accent, “American soldier, you government has betray you…” It was supposedly a tactic to play mind Read More



I’ve been sick since Friday afternoon and, darnit, I’m sick of being sick! It’s one of those stupid head-cold things that makes your throat hurt and your sinuses clog and your general awareness of what is happening around you very foggy.
