Those who found their fortunes were inclined to part with them in the nearest haven of pleasure, which was San Francisco.

Can't really comfortably wipe your ass with a page torn out of a kindle. And while I've used a rock to wipe my butt, but that's no good for rolling a cigerette.
Now, what was this thread about? when I'm reading stoned my ruin value is pretty high.

I'm reading the first volume of the non-fiction tome The Bacon Wars.

It's not a pretty read.

A bacon-absent planet is uglier - much uglier - than any amateur, zombie apocalypse paperback could ever convey.

This is fucking Y2K x infinity.

Are those horns attached to the helmet? Or the helmet go around the horns?

Is this where "bull headed" comes from? Or from passing a ruin? Or making a hard ass?
