So I decided I have to post it somewhere to see what people think.\r\n\r\nIf you believe it's too unrelated/abstract/bad than do let me know and I'll delete it, I think I've been posting some mediocre articles here lately and I feel bad about it and want to stop, I appreciate the relative qualiy of this board as much as anyone.
