    "I'm, yelled at all day just for being a terrible human being. That's disgusting."Yeah thats a little too close to home.

    Terrible human being shaming really is a disgusting, outdated practice that needs to stop. People should have the right to be terrible human beings if that's how they identify.

    +Louthinator that would be pretty weird. But if it was, whose to say the rest of the cast are real. Are you real? Am I !? Or are we just 1s and 0s in something much larger?

  • Louthinator

     (1 day ago)

    or better yet, "a file named laughing man""I thought what I'd do was, I'd pretend I was one of those deaf-mutes."

    It's missing the cocaine aspect though.Maybe the bot isn't quite advanced enough to pick up the subplots.
