"While it has been variously said that Grinchon's essence; a core at once courageous and uncertain, a powerful strength of will forever misdirected by the anxieties of incomplete information (so very much the problem of modern man!); lies in his intelligence, or his misanthropy, or his fevered desire for a better world, it is this author's opinion that we should view Grinchon's life not as the series of (and let's not shit ourselves here) rather ordinary events, but rather the way he himself viewed it: as the sum of the could-have-beens and should-have-dones and why-didn't-he-justs which hung about his every day like skulking vultures. For it is the shades of these realities that almost came to be which add the depth of feeling and nuance of character that makes Grinchon's life at once so extraordinary, and so, well, typical.
"Grinchon's mid twenties is a period that has undergone much scrutiny over the years as it is theorized that it was then that the First Cataclysmic Sentence was being constructed. These were seemingly peaceful years for Grinchon - he worked at a coffee shop while attending nursing school and spent most of his time in cafes and bars with his friends or with a book. It is astonishing to think of him at this time, going about his life as though he hadn't already conceived the violent reworking of our feeble attempts at civilization and its half hearted moralities."
Oh, and probably owning you in a debate. Sorry.

Is this boring you? I'm getting bored just writing it. Is this important to you? Should it be more important to me?
How to get into your pants.
Just do it. I mean, who doesn't want more friends?
