^ I know some of us of said similar things before, but you a Saint ScumCoder. I just felt I should express my thanks for all the effort you put into these timestamps.

When close friends speak ill of close friends

they pass their abuse from ear to ear

in dying whispers -

even now, when prayers are no longer prayed.

What sounds like violent coughing

turns out to be laughter.
