Didn't give us much else to work with. :/

Some emo'y list about how the world is uncaring and you should damage yourself. I don't get it.

I can't tell if cript is either unable see the sarcasm or is using some sort of creepy counter-sarcasm here.

None of the above.

That walking thing was pretty good advice though.  It's a little hard to get used to but damn you really are silent when you walk like that.

Who wants to 'be like a mime' anyway?

It is actually how you are supposed to walk when hunting, but it died out because people could herp around with guns and not need any of the old technique.

Mimes. Why do you think they're so silent? They're ashamed.

 I just yanked out my copy of "Smoke and Mirrors" and skimmed for the "story" I was talking about, it's called "Instructions", here's a online version of it.

Thank you for that.  It sent a little shiver running down my spine at one point.

None here.

Can we have randomly meandering philosophical poetry too?

Quote from: Aleister Crowley's The Book of Lies
    Verily, love is death, and death is life to come.
    Man returneth not again; the stream floweth not
      uphill; the old life is no more; there is a new life
      that is not his.
    Yet that life is of his very essence; it is more He
      than all that he calls He.
    In the silence of a dewdrop is every tendency of his
      soul, and of his mind, and of his body; it is the
      Quintessence and the Elixir of his being.  Therein
      are the forces that made him and his father and his
      father's father before him.
    This is the Dew of Immortality.
    Let this go free, even as It will; thou art not its
      master, but the vehicle of It.
