    Does it have to end in something other than disaster?
    Everything under heaven is in utter chaos; the situation is excellent. - Mao

    Nope - how it came about whether by truth or fiction - and the outcome disastrous or for the better.

    Never ask for favours. Do it yourself.

    I used to work my way into indispensable positions and then blackmail (for want of a better term - I guess I prefer forced renegotiations) -my employer for for more money, better car etc.
    That was the 90s in IT, if you knew your shit you could write your own ticket, they deserved it, I started out at just 10k per year and a non new car with petrol card.
    now we know.

    Deciding that the only beliefs I would allow in my mind were vetted by me, personally.
    Wild skies
    Full moon and thoughts collide
    We look for answers in those catatonic, bloodshot eyes
    A steady stream of madness
    Rises to a flood...

    ...The clock is ticking for Bad Blood
