this one's called "seemingly impossible to have even a happy thought without some kind of dark feeling accompanying it."

Are you really deaf in one ear from an untreated ear infection? Also what is your favorite mortal kombat character. Also how do you feel about being asked ear-related and/or video-game related questions?

yes. there is a tube deep inside my ear that keeps my eardrum open so i can partially hear out of it (with ringing and daily hurting and like, it leaks bloody stuff sometimes, more so if i get any water/wind in it). if the tube isn't in, then my ear bleeds a lot and like, i can't hear at all and it's hard to balance. my favorite mortal kombat character dpends on which one you mean, for 1, it's like, kano i think. for 2, probably baraka. for 3, i had a long 'cyrax' phase. but then there was kabal and i used to be able to do the finishing move where you take off the mask and scare them to death but for some reason it stopped working, and with it, my love for kabal went as all. i feel normal being asked these types of questinos because like, it mimics how my head works, something like, 'ow my ear hurts' then [image of mortal kombat finshing move] etc

Be cool if you wrote a story about a guy who hears the voice of the mortal kombat narrator guy when MK-related triggers occur. Like, everything is normal, then the guy slips on some ice and then hears that laugh and has a sudden, overwhelming feeling that sub-zero is nearby trying to kill him so he gets up and sees somebody standing nearby wearing a blue shirt and hears "finish him" real loud in his head then just runs at the guy and starts kneeling and over-dramatically uppercutting him.

Or a book called "Um-bros". This one is a coming of age tale / Um-bromance about two inseparable friends that have a deep connection via Umbro-related memories, activities, etc. Like one guy's checkered Umbros could rip at soccer practice and the other dude has a pair in his car/backpack to lend him and he puts em on, sheds a tear and says "you're a true Um-bro". Man hug with two shoulder slaps. End scene. These ideas are no charge, man. Just give credit in the forward to anonymous blog commenter #212 if you use either of em.

i wanted to be a marine but they wouldn't let me because of my bunk-ass ear and 'mental problems.' america, you fucking lost yourself a damn good soldier.
