Shooting deadly laser beams from my eyes because then I could annihilate all the inconsiderate c-nts who do things like steal parking spaces, cutting in line and don’t have “inside voices”.

Don’t waste your time giving a sh-t what other people think or trying to please them.

The love of my life going about his life without me.

What song will they play at your funeral?

My mother because I was such a selfish asshole when she was alive, she was amazing and I took her for granted.
