    Hey, some people may remember me, given I posted here for 15 years or so. I was a couple years into a soothing, ten-year break from web forums, but this is too interesting not to share.

    Housemate inflicted at least 25 knife wounds on my torso, arms, legs, and a teensy one on my head. And broke my neck. But I got better.

    In gaming news, I got rid of my ps4 a while back with intent to be game free until next gen consoles release this Christmas.

    Hug your kids. Or hang on to a handful of your jizz.

    Now Iím really bothered that the iPad doubled-posted.

    Tell you what, Iíve just about been raving about ipad as an accessibility device. My right arm is partially paralysed, using laptop is a nightmare, but Iím writing reams on new iPad as if it is the easiest thing ever. Probably never would have thought to get one otherwise. Tablets: like computers, but for disabled people. I should work in marketing.

    Two obvious questions

    1) are you deliberately doing the thumbs up in all those photos?

    2) Did you not have a breadbin handy?

    This is why you don't leave dishes in the sink

    Not to sound insensitive but what the fuck happened to your cat and is he OK? IS THE CAT OK? It's the most important part of the story but it's not addressed in the article.

    But also, fucking hell, you survived a thorough shanking; well done. I can't even begin to imagine any of it but I wish you a speedy recovery. Your attitude is also commendable, for whatever that's worth.

    That's crazy. Well done talking him out of it! Do you know what triggered him? Left the seat up?

    I hurt his pride I guess. Probably the same thing that happened with the unapologetic anonymous piece of shit who banned my old account from this site with no explanation. But Iím a big man and rise above it.
