  • bitterness

    Many years ago I saw a comment on Slashdot that just exuded raw bitterness. It was so good that I had to save it. Unfortunately, I can’t find the actual comment anymore for the citation, but here is what it said: As someone for whom the precipice of middle age is steps away, it doesn’t […]
