It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

the cigarette thing in the fault in our stars is so dumb you are wasting your money on an industry that is one of the largest causes of cancer just so you can make some lame ass far fetched metaphor

NO YOU ARE INCORRECT AND CLOSE MINDED ON SO MANY LEVELS

are you suggesting that it is close minded to say that cigarettes are a leading cause of cancer

The fact that the metaphor is dumb and pretentious is literally its entire point. That’s Gus’ major character flaw at the outset of the story, and that character flaw is pretty central to the book’s plot as a whole.

GAME OF THRONES SPOILERS
YOU ARE FOREWARNED

I’ve read the Song of Ice and Fire books, so all throughout the Royal Wedding I had a big grin on my face because I knew what was coming. But when Joffrey actually choked and died (the prick)… man, that was a gruesome way to go. I mean, I’m glad he’s dead, and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a little satisfied after the episode ended, but that was really uncomfortable to watch.

This is the FINEST glitch I’ve ever seen ANYWHERE - and that includes the World of Warcraft “turn north and crash” bug I keep running into.

A programmer is going out for a stroll one evening. His wife asks him to swing by the store and pick up a gallon of milk, and if they had eggs, to get a dozen. He returned with twelve gallons of milk and said “They had eggs.”
