Verizon Deserves A Bad Service Award

Cursed – What Is That Clicking Sound?

Why Do I Feel So Spaced Out?

Wow… what a night… Yesterday afternoon, I started really feeling worn out for no good reason. It’s not the first time. In fact, it’s almost right at a decade since that first time. The first time was equally scary. I had a...
