Ensuring that each and every one of your posts or threads on community.drownedinsound.com is as informative, entertaining and eye-opening as they possibly can be.

  • Ironing your work shirts.
  • Reading the fucking manual.

Actually throwing the one ring in the hecking fire once you’ve won a large battle and not flouncing off back home with it like some bloody daft Mummy’s boy and letting the entire world go to shit while the evil bloke just makes himself right at home again.

At least pretending your manifesto is costed.
