Life hacks for the dead: Things people from small towns don’t say

A place where people are nice, the smiles are free and nothing at all is hard to procure, travel around or be seen in. I’ve not doubted my move for a second. Nope. It’s primarily why I made this video. That and to build a tall wall of denial, tall enough so that skittering cockroach called reality cannot scale.

Sam Blacker understands. But, don’t mistake that for an endorsement of your faults, or to enable a date. Seriously, don’t. As one of the middle children of history, he’ll be regularly releasing “life hacks” for those who have given up on life. Because he’s a sadist. And he’s stuck here in perpetuity for a crime he’s committed in a past life.
