    Documenting ungrateful people taking their life for granted. I'm all for having fun, but when the risk of failure is so high, I see no difference with junkies risking their life for a cheap high.
    f*** y**. Blood of all those that want to copy you is on all your hands. You're climbing a rock, not solving cancer.
