  8. The guy that I know with the super memory is writing a screenplay based on Castlevania (the old Nintendo game). It is to be 60 chapters long and so far he has written over 400 pages. (ooh. I see that a movie based on the game is already in production)

    This is a 24/7 world. The world doesn't stop because you say so. You still sound frustrated.
