1. You know that ambitious dream you’ve always wanted to accomplish? Yeah, it’s not happening today.

14. Just kidding, NEVER watch The Shining while high – for when you stare into the abyss, the abyss stares back at you.

15. Indoor hiking.

16. Bust out your Sega Genesis and attempt to beat every game you own that still works. I’m coming for you, Road Rash!

31. Watch as the scarecrow begins to suffer barely perceptible tics and spasms before eventually standing up on its own and walking gingerly around the room. The scarecrow starts to speak, mimicking your voice and mannerisms. You rapidly deteriorate, your hair falling out and your memory vanishing. You sink to the ground, crumbling to dust. The scarecrow is whispering something into your girlfriend’s ear – they laugh and laugh and laugh. The scarecrow is you now.

32. Invent your own Wayans brother.

33. Watch some cartoons. Realize they all feature subliminal messaging about the JFK assassination.
