Well the remake for resident evil 3 did just come out...

And like most of the modern RE games, Resident Evil: Real Life Edition sucks too.

If an area was ours for 500 years and yours for 50 years, it should belong to us – you are merely occupiers.
If an area was yours for 500 years and ours for 50 years, it should belong to us – borders must not be changed.
If an area belonged to us 500 years ago but never since then, it should belong to us – it is the cradle of our nation.
If a majority of our people live there, it must belong to us – they must enjoy the right of self-determination.
If a minority of our people live there, it must belong to us – they must be protected against your oppression.
All of the above rules apply to us, but not to you.
Our dream of greatness is historical necessity, yours is fascism.

I was thinking that I honestly would rather deal with the constant ground shaking I experienced in Puerto Rico back in January to these quarantines.

Is it too late to return 2020 to the store?

And I was 3 and was playing Pokemon for the first time.

We'd have to go back a lot further to make sure we don't see 9/11 though. Long before 1999.

If we go back to 2019, won't that mean we'll have to pass 2020 to reach 2021?

We'll have to do this all again, oh no!

I prefer to think of this as Dark Souls. Everyone is slowly dying, the world is shutting down, civilization is collapsing and everyone you meet outside is trying to kill you not because they want to but because they are deteriorating and can't help it.
Purpelia does not reflect my actual world views. In fact, the vast majority of Purpelian cannon is meant to shock and thus deliberately insane. I just like playing with the idea of a country of madmen utterly convinced that everyone else are the barbarians. So play along or not but don't ever think it's for real.



The above post contains hyperbole, metaphoric language, embellishment and exaggeration. It may also include badly translated figures of speech and misused idioms. Analyze accordingly.

we will pull through this
we all will, however long this takes
you just need to prepare yourself, your mind and body, for what comes next
do you have anyone to talk to about your current problems? parents? the guy you said you have the hots for a while back? someone over facetime or something?
