    Interesting. Can't you afford to pay to get those college essays written? I hear there are a lot of sites you can go to.

    Why is the title of this topic spelled incorrectly? Secondly, is the user who posted this suffering from schizophrenia or something similar?

    What is the purpose of this thread?

    This will not end well...
    But it will at least be poetic, I suppose...

    Hmm... But what if it does end well?
    Then I suppose it will be a different sort of poetry, a preferable sort...
    A sort I could become accustomed to...
