Se7en was also a film about a serial killer who murdered his victims according to the 7 deadly sins. Honestly wouldn't surprise me if you turned out like that one day, but with a Breaking Bad angle worked in there. Running people over with an RV, cutting their bald scalps off, desposing of them in acid baths. Probably just a normal saturday night for you now.

Now what say you come with Uncy Stu, my cellar needs cleaning again. 5 hobos somehow got in there, and they shat all over the place. Ah man it's all over the walls and everything. I think it must have been something they ate, anyways their heads seem to have all fallen off and their organs are missing. Actually it'd be better if you came by later, say... eleven? Remember the hacksaw this time, we'll be there all week if we have to do it with bread knives again. Also if you could bring a bread knife that'd be great.

You're probably one of the worst members one this board and it fills me with relative disdain you've made a milestone.

I didn't mind you until the GTA_King roast, before that you were fine, after that you kinda became a pest. Overall you're still alright, it'd be nice to see you make proper contributions around the place other than just posting gifs though.

Congratulations.
