      It’s OK. You are a alarm clock. You’re supposed to do that.

  10. DJ Phantoon says:

    I take it that Episode 3 release date was just announced?

  11. WaveOfMutilation says:

    I must not fear.
    Fear is the mind-killer.
    Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
    I will face my fear.
    I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
    And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
    Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
    Only I will remain.

    AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!

    “This is a test. Do not be alarmed. Try to stay calm.”
    A phrase like that must only be said in GlaDOS’ voice.

  17. blah says:

    /ping

  18. Rich says:

    What to do if you find yourself stuck in a crack in the ground underneath a giant boulder you can’t move with no hope of rescue:
    Consider how lucky you are that life has been good to you so far.

    Alternatively, if life hasn’t been good to you so far (which, given your current circumstances, seems more likely):
    Consider how lucky you are that it won’t be troubling you much longer.

  19. Spatula says:
