I'm pretty sure I nailed every last typical mistake on my last attempt ^_^.  Surely the law of averages will kick in sometime.

If backstories are hereditary, then both Supes & Batman are going to get shot right before the planet explodes.

phil
  now I'm just thinking about buffalo bill vs leather face
  but that's not really a contest
  what would be sweet is a slasher movie where the victims are all independent serial killers

joel
  Buffalo Bill is more of a Leather Vest

phil
  like, you start out thinking the movie is about one of them

joel
  It'd be like Dexter.

phil
  sorta, yea
  I'd try to go for the rick roll moment
  where the real guy jumps out of like nowhere and starts hacking up the semi-believable ones
  and everyone's all dafuq

joel
  will it really be Rick Astley?

phil
  I wouldn't turn him down

joel
  Can it be?
  Good.

phil
  I bet he's looking for work

joel
  He would make a great serial killer.

phil
  he would be amazing

Drop in gem for all the latest HTTP security headers: http://bit.ly/UnKpbB

Awesome stuff, enables HSTS, CSP, XSS protection, and more.. If you're running Rails (or any rack application), definitely check it out!

Dark Lord of Shell Scripting at Moz
Introduction
Hailing from the distant world of Cybertron, Phil Smith has come to Earth in pursuit of its wondrous bounty (deep dish pizza, nerdcore hip-hop and Bruce Campbell movies.)  Indigenously disguising himself as a mild-mannered software developer, he has already infiltrated the native population, established a local base of operations in Seattle, and discovered the true meaning of Christmas.
