Motherfucker! 3 Goddamn hours crafting a highly ambitious comic. 9 panels all different. Gone!
And the worse part is that I'm a compulsive saver. You know, so if I do crash, at least I have a not-so-recent version to revert to.

Typing /played in World Of Warcraft reveals how much of your real life you've forfeited to your pretend life. As of this writing, my tally is 268 hours and 41 minutes, which makes me slightly better adjusted than the South Korean guy who played non-stop until he died of exhaustion.
Jamie would have you believe the countless hours he's lost propped in front of a television are somehow better spent.

Pity votes are always welcome.
