    Frankly I am surprised every day I wake up and the world is still turning. With the way mankind treats each other and how corrupt the world is, I can't believe the world made it long enough for me to come to existence.

    I told you all this would happen.

    And It's only going to get worse.

    The dead birds were an omen, the dead fish, and the way the moon looked last night too.

    Duck and cover everybody. The world is ending.

    Don't say I didn't warn you.
