IT WAS A JOKE! IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A JOKE!!
I'm sorry Relic, I have done this thing to you. I cannot offer you a new computer, but I can tell you that I have suffered as well.
Rarely if ever have I enjoyed a peaceful night's sleep since I made that post. I am afflicted with the most hideous nightmares that have made such a tremendous impact on my psyche that even the mere thought of sleep sends shivers down my spine and creates a profound and indescribable sense of dread in me. Also, food turns to ash in my mouth and everything I touch withers and dies.
I know I can never atone for my sins, but perhaps my fate can serve as a warning to others. DON'T BE LIKE ME!!!! If you make a joke about a subject as solemn and serious as the the results of a charity raffle then you'd better be prepared for the consequences.
